RAM – Rod (Metal Blade)

All hail Ramrod the destroyer! Sweden’s RAM had a particularly favourable release in ‘Svbversvm’ on their last outing and have developed with each release since I discovered them on their debut EP. A partial concept album based on Ramrod the Destroyer, in part the first.. Read More
Execration – Return To The Void (Metal Blade)

Execration – Return To The Void (Metal Blade)

Of the bands adopting the Execration moniker the Norwegian version is by far the most prolific with three gutter trawling filth riddled death metal albums already slithering around the underground making rancid ripples, with the bands last repugnant effort “Morbid Dimensions” being a particularly vitriolic..

Ghost – Popestar (Spinefarm)

Ghost – Popestar (Spinefarm)

A cheeky little EP from everyone’s favourite nameless ghouls in conjunction with a string of 41 US dates here. This contains one new track and 4 covers and is certainly a mixed bag of tricks and treats. Ghost have already given some indication of what.. Read More

Rock Im Revier 2016 (Westfenhalle, Dortmund, 26-28/5/26 )

Rock Im Revier is a relative newcomer to the European festival scene which some people say is overcrowded and at times, I do have to agree with them. You only have to look at how many festivals have folded recently due to financial instability, lack.. Read More
Arcana 13 – Danza Macabra (Aural Music)

Arcana 13 – Danza Macabra (Aural Music)

Now, how could I not pick this one for review…! An album entirely based on, and influenced by, classic Italian horror and giallo films of the 60’s and 70’s. Arcana 13 clearly love their Bava, Fulci and Argento, and have lovingly presented us with their.. Read More

Tribulation – The Children of the Night (Century Media)

For most bands, a six year time frame may not allow for a great deal of exploration and maturity but for Tribulation, it’s been a period for three albums all of which show more development than some bands show in a life time. The four.. Read More

Nightsatan – Nightsatan And The Loops Of Doom (Svart / Solina / Twisted Films)

Italian post-apocalyptic laser metal (from Finland) you what?? Well actually this happens to be something I am a bit of a connoisseur of due to my other love of dodgy movies. Let me put it in context. With the advent of home video, one of.. Read More
