Destroyer 666 - Call Of The Wild (Season Of Mist)

Destroyer 666 – Call Of The Wild (Season Of Mist)

I think it’s fair to say by now that Destroyer 666 are the heavy metal epitome of what does not kill you makes you stronger. Whatever you think of their ultra alpha male tribal/gang philosophy, 2017 showed how hard they stand their ground when attacked.. Read More
Rotting Kingdom – S/T (Godz Ov War)

Rotting Kingdom – S/T (Godz Ov War)

A bit of a quicky for y’all with this one, a three track EP from Kentucky’s Rotting Kingdom. Actually, I say “quicky”, but with the shortest of these tracks being six minutes long, and the other two weighing in at eight and nine minutes-ish respectively,.. Read More
Greytomb – Monumental Microcosm (Transcending Obscurity)

Greytomb – Monumental Microcosm (Transcending Obscurity)

This Australian band’s debut in 2016, “A Perpetual Descent”, plunged listeners into a quagmire of atmospheric murky blackened horror linking outright riffing malfeasance with dramatic soundscapes that surrounded the songs on multiple levels. Not much has changed generally as the band releases an EP of.. Read More
Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Whether a stud or not Andrew Godfrey calls Virginia home and not Transylvania but luckily this EP has something worthy of sinking its teeth into. Looking at his adopted moniker here you may well expect some sort of Finnish glam, goth, horror punk abomination but.. Read More
Autopsy – Puncturing The Grotesque (Peaceville)

Autopsy – Puncturing The Grotesque (Peaceville)

This seven track EP is Autopsy celebrating their thirtieth year as a band. Thirty gore soaked, depraved and sick as fuck years. I make no bones about it, Autopsy are one of my personal favourite bands of any metal genre and their originality and influence.. Read More
The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus - Split (I, Voidhanger)

The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus – Split (I, Voidhanger)

A relatively short release, this, being as it is a four track EP coming from those lovers of all things eclectic, I, Voidhanger records. In fairness, both acts are one-man outfits. Featured here is the dark and wilfully obscure death metal of Ohio’s Wakedead Gathering,.. Read More
Into Coffin - The Majestic Supremacy Of Cosmic Chaos (Terror From Hell)

Into Coffin – The Majestic Supremacy Of Cosmic Chaos (Terror From Hell)

This two track, twenty eight minute MCD is my second meeting with the curiously monikered Into Coffin. The title says it all really as far as themes go; we’re in the world of Azathoth and its ilk, Lovecraft’s nuclear cosmic insanity and the roiling chaos.. Read More
NonserviaM – Archetype Obscure (Slaughterhouse Records)

NonserviaM – Archetype Obscure (Slaughterhouse Records)

Having witnessed at close hand a small part of the Malaysian metal scene recently, it was plain to see that bands and compositions over there are collaborative efforts rather than being the sole inspiration of one dominant individual. One of the founder members of NonserviaM,.. Read More
Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Subtle flavours are what I experienced on Slowrun’s albums “Prologue” and “Resonance”. Now, two years on, the Finnish instrumental band has released this EP in which to weave their ambient magic. The first of the two tracks takes us immediately into a dreamworld, almost akin.. Read More
Code – Under the Subgleam (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Code – Under the Subgleam (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Not much to go on here as this EP lasts only 12 minutes, but the band themselves are well established with four albums. I was particularly impressed with “Lost Signal”, an EP released at the beginning of this year, which I described then as “an.. Read More
Kapala - Infest Cesspool (Dunkelheit)

Kapala – Infest Cesspool (Dunkelheit)

Kapala (a Sanskrit word meaning skull I gather) are from India. Well this lot are, as I discovered two other bands sharing this name. The idea of fans of either of those other two bands accidentally downloading this amuses the fuck out of me, particularly.. Read More
Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

I, probably like many other metal heads in the world, got into Perturbator aka James Kent, via the “Dangerous Days” album released in 2014 which for me was a chance listen when browsing the Blood Music bandcamp pages just sampling what the label had to.. Read More
