Third Wave – Metamorphosis (S/R)

Progressive and Metalcore are two words you would never normally see sequentially. For the main part, Metalcore was a dynamic genre which really exploded in the early 2000’s, seeming to pick up where Nu-Metal left off, before it became a… Continue Reading →

Pesterous Mind – Halluci. Nation (Boersma Records)

For some reason this German act is tagged as being deathcore and whilst there are tenets of that genre this second album is closer to death metal overall. The overriding deathcore facet lies within the vocals that possess that deep… Continue Reading →

Lunar Shadow – The Smokeless Fires (Cruz Del Sur Music)

Formed in 2014 and with one EP and a long player to their credit, relative German newcomers, Lunar Shadow have released their second album, “The Smokeless Fires”. Though their lifespan has been relatively brief, the journey has not been without… Continue Reading →

Reckless Manslaughter – Caverns of Perdition (F.D.A. Records)

Well, I have to say that the accompanying blurb that came with the promo release really does win “self-evident comment of the year”, with the opening statement, “Death, as it happens, is intrinsically lethal”. Yup. I should say so. Many… Continue Reading →

NRVK – Thghtlss Lght (Van)

A member of NRVK once went on popular British quiz show Countdown and asked Carol Vorderman (it was an old-school episode) for a vowel and was told no! It obviously affected them seriously judging by their new EP release Thghtlss… Continue Reading →

Terrible Headache – Der Rote Baron (Boersma Records)

So, I don’t know too much about Terrible Headache, except for two things: 1) They are German; and 2) Before this, their last album was released way back in 1998. Now, I have this mate who has a number of… Continue Reading →

Temple Koludra – Seven! Sirens! To A Lost Archetype (Transcending Obscurity)

Although founded in 2010, Temple Koludra are a relatively young band regarding releases and fan base. However, the people behind it, though preferring to remain unknown, are very likely experienced musicians. The album at hand, the band’s first after two… Continue Reading →

Eridu – Lugalbanda (S/R)

Now why German band Eridu should be concerned with the legend of Lugalbanda from the ancient times of Mesopotamia is unclear. Even Rick Wakeman never managed that one. To be fair, the band clearly don’t work in half measures and… Continue Reading →

For All I Care – Forever and a Day (Boersma)

This band from Langenfeld in Germany purvey “nebenan Metal”, which broadly translates as “Metal from next door”. The sound quality of this album, the follow up to their debut ep “Everything Changes” (2017), has a next door quality about it…. Continue Reading →

Thorybos – The Foul And The Flagrant (Bleak Bone Mortualia)

There’s nothing better than a short, concise and on point PR statement rather than a gushing overblown essay on why you should listen to a band. That’s exactly what we got here as an introduction to German black deathsters Thorybos… Continue Reading →

Bethlehem – Lebe Dich Leer (Prophecy)

1991 The year of Bethlehem’s inception. Since then they have released a plethora of LP’s, splits and EPs. The style within those recordings has whipped between DSBM, Industrial, Black Metal and the outright weird. In 2016 the present incarnation with… Continue Reading →

Sinners Bleed – Absolution (War Anthem Records)

Now there’s lazy and there’s lazy but regardless of (the very good I would expect) reasons behind the 16-year gap between Berlin based Sinners Bleed’s debut album and this their second offering ‘Absolution’, it means the stakes are relatively high… Continue Reading →
