F.K.U – 1981 (Despotz Records)

F.K.U – 1981 (Despotz Records)

If you were lucky enough to hear 2013’s “Rise of the Mosh Mongers” by F.K.U. you know you are in for a retro treat. By retro I do not mean rebranded Trump(ed) up dayglow for Millennials. I mean full on one high-topped white trainered foot.. Read More
The Haunted - Strength In Numbers (Century Media)

The Haunted – Strength In Numbers (Century Media)

AC/DC. Van Halen. Black Sabbath. Candlemass*. The list goes on. What list, you may enquire? Why, the list of bands of whom there are multiple singers across their discography, where there is a prevailing opinion about whom the best vocalist is or was. For The.. Read More
Warbringer - Woe To The Vanquished (Napalm)

Warbringer – Woe To The Vanquished (Napalm)

Four albums under their belt and continually growing in strength and prominence, Californian thrash machine Warbringer don’t pull their punches or mess about. With their last release ‘IV: Empires Collapse’ getting some serious praise (Including a 9/10 from us!!), the scene is set for what.. Read More
Havok – Conformicide (Century Media)

Havok – Conformicide (Century Media)

NO KARATE IN THE PIT! You heard!  Denver based Thrashers Havok are still as vehemently old school in their approach to music and there are no toxic beer mugs or tough guy macho stylings in sight. I interviewed founding vocalist/guitarist at Download last summer and.. Read More
Iron Reagan - Crossover Ministry (Relapse)

Iron Reagan – Crossover Ministry (Relapse)

Having a bad day? Maybe the boss is giving you the shits and the rest of humanity is conspiring to just not play nice? 30 minutes is all you need to cast away these unpleasantries and Iron Reagan may just be the cure. “Crossover Ministry”.. Read More
Obituary, Exodus, Prong – London Electric Ballroom 25/10/16

Obituary, Exodus, Prong – London Electric Ballroom 25/10/16

Unfortunately owing to a biker down on the M40 & idiots insisting on rubbernecking I missed King Parrot completely, but am reliably informed they put on a great show & impressed many this night. Next up on the bill were Prong & while I would.. Read More
Allegaeon - Proponent for Sentience (Metal Blade)

Allegaeon – Proponent for Sentience (Metal Blade)

Allegaeon are back with their fourth album and only a single line-up change. Long-time vocalist Ezra Haynes has been replaced by Riley McShane and to be honest I wasn’t immediately convinced, especially when I noted he had taken over a fair bit of the lyric.. Read More
Assassin – Combat Cathedral (SPV)

Assassin – Combat Cathedral (SPV)

Blimey – here’s a blast from the past! I remember buying their second LP ‘Interstellar Experience’ (with its dodgy zombie / scarecrow / Wolverine artwork) from Shades in about 1988. Assassin were a bit different to other German bands of the time. Much faster than.. Read More
DarkRise – Fear, Hate and Corruption (Punishing Records)

DarkRise – Fear, Hate and Corruption (Punishing Records)

A substantial, well rounded Death Metal album is always a delight to listen to and Swiss five piece DarkRise’s latest album Fear, Hate and Corruption is exactly that. In a realm which has an ever increasing amount of sub genres, it’s a breath of fresh.. Read More
Anger As Art - Ad Mortem Festinamus (Old School Metal Records)

Anger As Art – Ad Mortem Festinamus (Old School Metal Records)

This is the fourth album, the second I have reviewed by Anger As Art and if their last effort ‘Hubris Inc.’ took you by the scruff of the neck and tore your head from your body, then this new one will add the finishing touches.. Read More
Archemoron – Sulphur and Fire (Bowel Of Noise)

Archemoron – Sulphur and Fire (Bowel Of Noise)

Greek war helmet-obsessed black metallers Archemoron fire up a melting pot that blends the finest of the grandiose Hellenic tradition with elements the far flung reaches of the extreme metal universe. Dropping in death, thrash and straight down the line heavy metal. This is not.. Read More
Metal Allegiance – S/T (Nuclear Blast)

Metal Allegiance – S/T (Nuclear Blast)

I’m never really too sure whether assembling a bunch of musicians and getting them to play some songs together is going to actually produce something worth listening to. Sometimes it works, other times not so much. Thankfully this is an instance of it definitely working.. Read More
