Revenge – Behold.Total.Rejection (Season Of Mist)

As far as the other 19 bands listed on Metal Archives going by the name Revenge are concerned they may as well just do one and fuck off. Yes harsh words but we are dealing with a band here who… Continue Reading →

Zom – Flesh Assimilation (Invictus)

It’s about time we got a full length album from Irish black, doom, crust scumbags Zom. For those that have caught them live they really do deliver the goods and leave their mark on you and having seen them twice… Continue Reading →

Voices – London (Candlelight)

London our city! The place we live whilst loving and loathing it in equal measure. Or is it equal? Maybe not as I think of the emotions and descriptors it best sums up in me. Fear, paranoia, agitation, disillusionment, schizophrenia,… Continue Reading →

Stench – Venture (Agonia)

‘Venture’ is the 2nd album of Swedish extremists Stench. Featuring 2 members of fellow Swedes Tribulation, the 7 new tracks on offer here are sure to have you slyly checking your armpits and changing the bin bags thanks to their… Continue Reading →

SepticFlesh – Titan (Season of Mist)

It’s a rare occurrence that I don’t want to review an album. But not for the reason you may think. In this instance it’s pure selfishness. If I don’t review this, then no-one else gets to read about it and… Continue Reading →

Triptykon – Melana Chasmata (Century Media)

Basement Torture Killings – A Night Of Brutal Torture (Grindscene Records)

How much of a disappointment is it when you look forward so much to a new album from a favourite band and they might as well have taken a big steaming dump on your chest? ‘St. Anger’, ‘Cold Lake’, ‘Nostradamus’… Continue Reading →

Impiety – The Impious Crusade (Hells Headbangers)

If you know anything about Impiety, you know what to expect here. This five track mini album is the usual ferocious, no-holds barred assault. Violence is the order of the day and to accompany the artwork on the sleeve, “The… Continue Reading →

For Many Reasons – Make Your Own (Great Dane)

A heavy, dark and ethereal atmosphere is promised. “Make Your Own” is the second album release by this French extreme and post death metal band. The production is by Dan Swanö. The result is a powerful and lively combination, full… Continue Reading →

Welter In Thy Blood – Todestrieb (Dusktone)

Welter In Thy Blood are a trio who apparently hail from sunny-side-up Los Angeles. Jeez they must hate it there. Umm… Where to start? Well they are kind of my nightmare review because there is either so much or so… Continue Reading →

Philip H. Anselmo And The Illegals – Walk Through Exits Only (Season of Mist)

How to review this album? This is quite a dilemma as to quote the lyrics from opening track “Music Media Is My Whore” this is definitely  “authentic anti-music” with discordant rhythms and timing signatures and Phil ranting and screaming in… Continue Reading →
