Cadaver – D.G.A.F. (Nuclear Blast)

What, where, when, how, why? Were immediate questions that hit me when this unexpected body bag turned up in my digital review files. A quick look affirmed that yes, this was the correct Cadaver, the Norwegian one, that had arrived,… Continue Reading →

Sweven – The Eternal Resonance (Ván Records)

As you’ve probably guessed this Swedish act is named after the final album by Morbus Chron before they split up. Purely the sonic vision of Morbus Chron’s Robert Andersson this could be viewed as a solo project under the banner… Continue Reading →

Wombbath – Choirs Of The Fallen (SoulSeller Records)

Right, no fannying about…. Wombbath are the nuts. What do you need to know? Well, despite having released their first demo in 1992, the band originally only recorded one album the classic  “Internal Caustic Torments” in 1993 before sadly chucking… Continue Reading →

Nerve Saw – Peril (Testimony Records)

For a debut album, Finnish band Nerve Saw (great name), seem to be existing an almost monistic existence from a virtual world perspective with very little in terms of a social media presence. It’s almost as if the band are… Continue Reading →

Lucifer – Lucifer III (Century Media)

Have you ever heard of “Lucifer”? No folks, I don’t mean the medieval Judaeo-Christian bogey man of old worshipped by Ghost, I mean the Scandewegian occult tinged hard rock band! “No”? Well, let me just say, you are wrong on… Continue Reading →

Video Nasties – Dominion (APF)

I first came across Video Nasties, a 5-piece Liverpool-based band who can be best described as a blackened and grizzly tribute to John Carpenter. By blending the heaviness and harshness of Entombed and Carcass with the cinematic power of Carpenter’s… Continue Reading →

I thoroughly enjoyed The Massacre Cave’s mini album “The Ninth Wave” (2012) – lots of ideas and well executed – and was very pleased to be reunited with them in the form of their new album “Godlust”. The band is… Continue Reading →

Undead – Existential Horror (Godz Ov War)

There’s no shortage of Undead bands in the metal graveyard, its an obvious name and there’s no less than 14 bunches of ghouls using the moniker according to Metal Archives. This is an international group whose members are largely made… Continue Reading →

PIST – Hailz (APF Records)

“I finally feel like we’ve made a record we can all be proud of.” These are the words of Dave Rowlands, vocalist for the Bury based filthy four piece PIST, a band who I have spoken about on the pages… Continue Reading →

Come Back From The Dead – The Rise Of The Blind Ones (Transcending Obscurity)

Name a death metal band from Spain….come on quick….. you can’t can you. Well, I can…. And not only are Come Back From The Dead from  A Coruña but they are killer too! What does Spanish death metal sound like?… Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
