Hate Eternal – Upon Desolate Sands (Season Of Mist)

Floridian Death Metal is arguably the most important stepping stone in Death Metal history. The pathway into the age of the extreme. Whilst the quest to be the heaviest still loomed Thrash was transforming and in its wake spawned Death… Continue Reading →

Gnosis – The Offering of Seven (Terror From Hell)

There’s something debauched and carefree about Gnosis new slab The Offering of Seven. This is tightly-delivered, doom-laden death metal with a charred, blackened edge but Gnosis is also undeniably, well, fun. Is it the Hellenic hues of the blackened sound,… Continue Reading →

Monstrosity -The Passage Of Existence (Metal Blade)

Floridian Death Metal is probably one of the most famous scenes in the Metal world, save for perhaps the Norwegian Black Metal scene. This scene was erupting at the birth of the previous mentioned Black Metal scene however and was… Continue Reading →

Killing Addiction – Omega Factor (Xtreem)

The Florida Death Metal scene is one of those which can boast some titans in the genre. Cannibal Corpse, Obituary, Six Feet Under, Death, Morbid Angel, Atheist and Hate Eternal are all well-known names and have helped define some aspects… Continue Reading →

Malevolent Creation – Dead Man’s Path (Century Media)

Here we have album number twelve from Malevolent Creation. Aside from mentioning their status as one of the pioneering bands from the early ’90s Floridian death metal scene, I think it’s fair to assume that they require little introduction. Five… Continue Reading →

Abiotic – Casuistry (Metal Blade)

Florida’s Abiotic present their second album “Casuistry”. Whatever “Casuistry” is, it seems to involve large portions of technical riffage in a decidedly death metal framework. It’s impossible not to come back to the word technical. Progressive patterns are interwoven into… Continue Reading →

Perdition Temple – The Tempter’s Victorious (Hell’s Headbangers)

It’s probably best to start off by stating that Angelcorpse are pretty much my favourite band of all time. When they disbanded (again) in 2009 and news came of guitarist Gene Palubicki releasing material intended for the fifth Angelcorpse CD… Continue Reading →

Aevangelist – Omen Ex Simulacra (Debemur Morti)

Something that has become increasingly apparent to me as I have aged is the importance of ‘form’ within the realms of extreme metal. By that I mean, the accolades that can be showered upon something almost of a direct result… Continue Reading →

Deicide – In The Minds Of Evil (Century Media)

I do love a character… Just like Burzum & Varg (stabby / arsony / and, well, a bit of a Nazi…maybe)  Megadeth & Mustaine (guaranteed to say something bonkers at any moment / likes telling you how good he is… Continue Reading →

Mena Brinno – Princess Of The Night (SR)

I really enjoyed the 2009 released ‘Wicked Polly’ by this band as it was a refreshing take on an oversaturated subgenre. Utilising the very natural sounding operatic vocal talents of Tampa Florida based singer Katy Decker and Polish born multi-instrumentalist… Continue Reading →

Dark Sermon – In Tongues (Nuclear Blast)

Deicide, Morbid Angel and Six Feet Under all come from Tampa, Florida. So do Dark Sermon, who have gone on record as claiming to have redefined heavy metal. That’s quite a claim. What’s missing is the evidence. This quartet sound… Continue Reading →
