EP

Ripped To Shreds – Demon Scriptures (Pulverised Records)

There is a lot to be said about introducing cultural influences as lyrical inspirations and conceptual themes for songs and albums. Sometimes it works rather well, sometimes it backfires and people get up in arms about it and call cultural… Continue Reading →

Cubanate – Kolossus (Armalyte Industries)

I’d been listening to <Pig> a few days before this dropped into the review lists so this seemed like a sign; same label and all. “Cubanate?!” I thought, “Are they still going?” Well, no, a return to the machine after… Continue Reading →

Buy Jupiter – Eclipse (Apathia Records)

Heavy, violent, technical … so begins this four track EP from French metallers Buy Jupiter. It may be trying to kill me with overpowering force, but it’s dynamic and I’m loving it. Djenty heavy tech death give way to a… Continue Reading →

Vader – Thy Messenger (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 18 years since I bought a Vader album and nearly as long since I have seen them live. The first thing that’s clearly apparent as I listen to this five track EP, they have lost none of… Continue Reading →

Lunden – S/T (Abstract Tits)

Childish or not, one is always going to throw the words Abstract Tits into an Internet image search and see what artistic results it comes up with. Quite disappointing really but the label in question are apparently Danish and have… Continue Reading →

Blind Haze – Red Light Fever (S/R)

Ladies and gents, let me take you on a short trip back in time to 1977. Whilst some may think of it as the summer of punk, reality is that despite the legacy of that movement, the music didn’t sell… Continue Reading →

Bob Malmström – Länge leve (Elitbolaget)

Punk! And as it should be: loud, fast, angry, trashy, vulgar and respectless. Länge leve, has got it all, including a “fuck you” attitude. Or how else to call it when a Finnish band send their release to a British… Continue Reading →

Dool – Love Like Blood (Prophecy)

I think it is fair to say that a follow up to Dool’s debut album Here Now, There Then which arrived early 2017 is highly anticipated. It was a magical album and definitely touched a lot of hearts with its… Continue Reading →

Eggs Of Gomorrh – Outpregnate (Krucyator Productions)

You what? Yep it’s kind of difficult taking the group name seriously here. Every time I think of it I get images of a missing Tom Baker Doctor Who adventure written by Terry Nation. No doubt if it had existed… Continue Reading →

Fen – Stone and Sea (Eisenwald)

In honour of their region of origin, the EP “Stone and Sea” is “a tribute to the crumbling coastlines of Eastern England and the spirits that lie restless beneath the waters”. Incredibly this is Fen’s tenth release, including the first… Continue Reading →

Gatekeeper – Grey Maiden (Cruz Del Sur Music)

From their demo day’s Gatekeeper from Canada have been a touch special. They are one of those groups who may be labelled as a particular sub-genre of metal, but travel well between high standards of a fair few descriptions. In… Continue Reading →
