GraveCoven -  Coughing Blood (Godz Ov War)

GraveCoven – Coughing Blood (Godz Ov War)

GraveCoven are a newish US duo who have released a couple of demos and a single before this twenty minute EP. The press release notes them as black doom and as the first song ‘Summoning Vengeance’ growls out of the speakers, I’m very much hit.. Read More

Lykhaeon – Ominous Eradication Of Anguished Souls (Godz Ov War)

Did you know that there is a Helvetic Underground Community and their mission statement is “advancement of grotesque, vile, depraved and putrid audio torment?” I bet their meetings, hidden away somewhere in the Swiss Alps are great fun and woe betide the person who forgot.. Read More

Thunderwar – Wolfpack (Lifeforce Records)

This 5 track EP is the third release by Polish quartet Thunderwar and its rapid no-nonsense songs get to the point with minimal fuss. Opening title track “Wolfpack” has Kamil “Madness” Mandes’s raspy vocals spat out over Paweł “Pavulon” Jaroszewicz’s fast drumming, while Witold Ustapiuk’s.. Read More

Gateway – Boundless Torture (Pulverised)

Ok I had never heard Gateway before this, a one man band from Belgian Robin Van Oyen, but it had sat on the review list for a week so I thought “Hey, give it a go.. bit of doom death, what could possibly go… woorrng….”.. Read More

Slaughterday – Abattoir (FDA Records)

Man I love a bit of Slaughterday. This German band are super consistent in their output and I had the pleasure of reviewing their last EP 2014s “Ravenous” and this is a nifty little follow up to 2016’s  full length “Laws Of The Occult”. Now,.. Read More
Blitzkrieg Baby – War Gods (Beläten)

Blitzkrieg Baby – War Gods (Beläten)

I had been waiting on this to leave a foul taste in my ears and this “little ray of sunshine” is certainly doing so as I sit hear listening to it, sweating from the hottest day of the year whilst last night’s alcoholic ruin seeps.. Read More
Ekpyrosis - Primordial Chaos Restored (Terror From Hell)

Ekpyrosis – Primordial Chaos Restored (Terror From Hell)

Not come across Italian death metal band Ekpyrosis before (translates as something like ‘born from fire’ I believe) so an EP seems a good place to start. Opening track ‘Abyssal Convergence’ creeps in on slow, dark riffs, a little of the funeral doom of early.. Read More
Vampillia - Happiness Brought by Endless Sorrow (Temple of Torturous)

Vampillia – Happiness Brought by Endless Sorrow (Temple of Torturous)

Almost every band has a one sheet info accompanying their release, giving you some basics about themselves and their album. That’s the golden standard. Apart from that, there are two extremes. Some releases have press info sheets that are so elaborate and long they are.. Read More

Rotten Sound - Suffer to Abuse (Season Of Mist)

Rotten Sound – Suffer to Abuse (Season Of Mist)

I first became aware of Rotten Sound in 2000 when Still Psycho was released. I hadn’t listened to Grindcore since I bought From Enslavement to Obliteration when it came out. I was in for a blast – in many ways.  The Finns have remained at the.. Read More
Godthrymm – A Grand Reclamation (Transcending Records)

Godthrymm – A Grand Reclamation (Transcending Records)

Supergroups aren’t a new idea, but are they always a good idea? A vast number of highly creative individuals crammed into one space with influences and styles running amok may sound like a recipe for success but it can potentially end in disaster. That being.. Read More
