Entry – Detriment (Southern Lord)

A debut album, nine tracks, with a playtime of under twenty minutes – that alone should tell you what genre this belongs to. If it doesn’t, you literally must have been born yesterday. I’ll give you a hint: It’s not… Continue Reading →

Skeleton – Skeleton (20 Buck Spin)

I call myself a Metalhead because I think that probably best suits my musical taste, I mean don’t get me wrong I listen to some weird stuff. One minute I’m listening to Manowar the next Eurovision songs (I probably just… Continue Reading →

Smiling Assassin – Plight Of The Millennial (Warren Records)

Keeping the flame of British hardcore punk alive, Yorkshire’s Smiling Assassin have virtually blasted out of the starting blocks. Having only formed in 2019, one might say they’ve been born in troublesome times so are well placed to spew forth… Continue Reading →

Putrid – Antichrist Above (Godz Ov War Productions)

I was surprised that there are only a few bands called Putrid on my investigations, however there are loads of bands suffixed with the word putrid; putrid this and putrid that etc. This version of Putrid hails from the deepest… Continue Reading →

Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Transcending Obscurity)

I reviewed Henry Kane’s (actually, the grind alias of Death Metal royalty Jonny Petersson) last album for this very publication, giving it a 7/10, though with more repeated listens, I should have awarded it an 8, as several of the… Continue Reading →

Utilitarian – Fight War Not Wars, Destroy Power Not People (S/R)

The fact that half the title of Utilitarian’s new release is appropriated from CRASS (all property is theft) gives you an idea of the political slant and moral compass of this lot from Sheffield . The band name is shared… Continue Reading →

Satan Worship – Teufelssprache (Folter Records)

Speaking in “the Devil’s tongue,” here we have a trio with members split between Germany and Brazil some of whom also play in Sodomizer and Hellkommander along with a drummer who has done time in both Destruction and Morgoth. Can… Continue Reading →

Reek – Death Is Something There Between (Testimony Records)

There seems to be quite a few Death n Roll releases recently springing from combinations of bands. Odd, must be something in the water 27 years after Entombed released the Blueprint “Wolverine Blues”. Hot on the leather bound heels of… Continue Reading →

Medium – S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

Although the label is based in India head honcho Kunal seems to spend no short amount of time trawling the globe and looking for the best of death and doom to release to a wider audience. Medium from Argentina are… Continue Reading →

Mondo Generator – Fuck It (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Fans of Mondo Generator must be salivating at the release of this album. Eight long years have passed since Nick Oliveri’s wrecking crew last unleashed their own brand of havoc. Not that the ex-Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age… Continue Reading →

Reaper – Unholy Nordic Noise (Iron Bonehead)

So, if there was to be a prize this year for the album title that most accurately described the music therein, it would be “Unholy Nordic Noise”. I like to think that the Swedish crew have just time-travelled in from… Continue Reading →

Big Scenic Nowhere – Vision Beyond Horizon (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Fans of desert and stoner rock are in for a treat with this collaboration that strings together an impressive selection of contributors. Whilst some collaborations don’t quite come together, this one is a different kettle of fish. Fu Manchu’s Bob… Continue Reading →
