Fleshgod Apocalypse – Veleno (Nuclear Blast)

When a friend of mine suggested I give ‘King’ a listen in 2016, as I’d never heard of the Roman trio Fleshgod Apocalypse at the time, I was rather quick to complement him and thank him profusely for the introduction…. Continue Reading →

The Monolith Deathcult – V2 Vergelding (Human Detonator Records)

Although their music is nothing short of lethally serious Dutch nutters The Monolith Deathcult have a rare sense of humour in the death metal scene and have never been above cracking the odd joke at their expense either. V2 Vergelding… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival 2018 – Day 2, Oslo Norway 30/3/18

I was greeted by clear blue skies on Friday so took the opportunity to take in Oslo’s waterfront and let the hangover clear. The day quickly passed and I soon found myself in the photopit at Rockefeller waiting for Swedish… Continue Reading →

Bleeding Gods – Dodekathlon (Nuclear Blast)

‘Dodekathlon’ is the second release from Bleeding Gods, and it is an hour of epic, blackened death metal, which is all delivered in an intricate 12 tracks of pure power and aggression. This opus has different influences in the equation,… Continue Reading →

Khazaddum – Plagues Upon Arda (S/R)

If it’s not the great old one H.P. Lovecraft then its J.R.R. Tolkien and one has to wonder if the two literary greats would ever have envisaged their impact on the extreme metal world but there is certainly no denying… Continue Reading →

Kreator – Gods Of Violence (Nuclear Blast)

For their fourteenth album Kreator are back with a couple extra features they haven’t really bothered with before, namely four tracks with orchestral accompaniments arranged by Fleshgod Apocalypse, collaborating with German pop artist Dagobert along with harps and bagpipes on… Continue Reading →

The Agonist – Five (Napalm)

Canadian act The Agonist probably don’t want the most memorable thing about them being that they are that band whose singer went and joined Arch Enemy. They were quick to come back with new vocalist Vicky Psarakis installed and delivered… Continue Reading →

Red Dawn – Algorithm of Destruction (Finisterian Dead End)

French tech-death five piece Red Dawn’s debut full length Algorithm of Destruction is a powerful tour de force of an album that all fans of the more complex and heavier side of the metal spectrum are bound to enjoy. Whether… Continue Reading →

Panychida – Haereticalia: The Night Battles (Cursed Records)

Welcome to the latest “memorial service” from Czech Republic brigands Panychida. I remember their last campaign well, 2013 release ‘Grief Of An Idol’ proved to be an enthralling journey of pagan metal complete with themes of ancient death rituals and… Continue Reading →

Elderblood – Messiah (Osmose)

Ukrainian black metal? Members who have spent time in Nokturnal Mortem? ‘Elderblood’? Forgive me for at first approaching this album with a modicum of trepidation. Whilst the fad for NSBM that peaked around 2006-2007 in the UK has (mercifully) faded… Continue Reading →
