Witch Vomit – Buried Deep In A Bottomless Grave (20 Buck Spin)

Band name and album title should leave you no clue left to find as to the musical style of these Americans, who have a heavy Scandinavian sound and a deathly vocal howl practiced by bands making a touch more extreme… Continue Reading →

Bastard Grave – Diorama Of Human Suffering (Pulverised)

If you’re a Metalhead and not into Death Metal then seriously what are you doing? I understand that it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but surely if you like Slayer, Kreator, Sodom or any other more extreme Thrash act then… Continue Reading →

Ribspreader – Crawl and Slither (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

This is the eighth – yes, eighth full length release for Ribspreader since 2004. When you add on the fact that this old-school Swedish death metal band is just one of twenty one bands that main man Rogga Johansson is… Continue Reading →

Rogga Johansson – Entrance To The Otherwhere (Transcending Obscurity Records)

On one side of the “bread n butter” death metal spectrum we have artists yearning for the glory of yesterday, struggling to stay relevant. On the other side, young whippersnappers with nostalgia in their eyes flap vainly for our attention… Continue Reading →

Burial Remains – Trinity Of Deception (Transcending Obscurity)

Seven tracks, twenty five minutes, old school death metal…… what’s not to like? Well…. Not much actually as this is a total blast and another win for Transcending Obscurity that has an absolutely stellar roster of bands. Burial Remains formed… Continue Reading →

Feral – Flesh For Funerals Eternal (Transcending Obscurity)

Swedish Death Metal has a very distinct sound about it popularized in the 90’s by bands such as Entombed, Dismember and Carnage to name but a few. This riff heavy, muddy, filth covered style has inspired bands the world over… Continue Reading →

Binah – Phobiate (Osmose)

To play live or not that is the question, artists not choosing to play their music in a live setting is no new idea. Rather famously the Black Metal scene is littered with solo projects and underground bands not wishing… Continue Reading →

Crawl – Rituals (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Do you like pro-wrestling? I do, lots of metal fans do as it happens. Then again, some of my mates call it “pants fighting” and suggest I just like watching oiled up muscular men in lycra sit on each other…. Continue Reading →

De Profundis – The Binding Light Of Faith (Transcending Obscurity)

When I saw De Profundis’ latest offering on the review list, I was keen to secure the beast as I had been a fan of their work for a few years now. Having been witness to their brutality and clinical… Continue Reading →

Befouled – Refuse to Rot (Great Dane)

Norwegian band Befouled’s death metal style is said to be for fans of Dismember, Entombed, Bolt Thrower, Unleashed and At The Gates amongst others. What I experienced here was death metal at the thrashier end, with drums going thirteen to… Continue Reading →

Sentient Horror – The Crypts Below (Testimony Records)

Back in 2016 I was lucky enough to get the debut Sentient Horror album “Ungodly Forms” through to review…..and I won’t lie, it made me chub up a bit. The ludicrously good, old school Swedish DM vibe….. expertly replicated by… Continue Reading →

Under the Church – Supernatural Punishment (Pulverised)

A second album so quickly? Well, maybe not actually quickly, given that their last record, the rather fun “Rabid Armageddon” came out in 2015. Still, I guess time does seem to work rather speedily when spent in the company of… Continue Reading →
