Fractal Universe – Rhizomes Of Insanity (Metal Blade)

Progressive Death Metal is a tough genre, especially the more exotic side of it. I’ve said this several times in the past few years and I will stand by that statement. It’s inherently complex nature, straddling the boundaries of several… Continue Reading →

Electrocution – Psychonolatry (Goregorecords)

Genre flooding is nothing new, since the very dawn of recorded music and likely even prior there has been surges and waves of certain styles pummelling the eardrums of listeners like an audible tsunami. Yet the prevalence of this is… Continue Reading →

Vidres A La Sang – Set De Sang (Blood Fire Death)

Now this lot are a blast from the past as I remembered reviewing the Spanish band whose name means Glass In Blood’s debut self-titled album via Xtreem music way back in 2004. Finding this in my promo boxes of discs… Continue Reading →

Eryn Non Dae – Abandon Of The Self (Debemur Morti)

It sometimes feels like the journey into the globe’s metal extremities is a continuous descent down an ever blackening rabbit hole, constantly looking for new and darker corners, so little wonder that things can get a bit blinkered sometimes. It’s… Continue Reading →

Krysthla – Peace In Our Time (Initiate Audio)

The debut album by this Wellingborough based mob ‘A War Of Souls And Desires’ was a vicious S.O.B. make no mistake. Similarly when they tore things up at Bloodstock Festival in the Sophie Tent getting a pit full of ugly… Continue Reading →

Mantra – Laniakea (Finisterian Dead End)

Mantra talk about pushing their tribal and mystical experimentations further than on their debut album “Into the Light” (2013). I agree that there’s a very interesting ambience here. The drum patter of “Marcasite” is bright and breezy, before the track… Continue Reading →

Until the Uprising – Out of Time (Klonosphere)

These Frenchmen have been around since 2008, since then they have released an ep and two albums, including this one. Promoting their music as having different universes and styles, this to them seems to be a good thing. For me… Continue Reading →

Meshuggah – The Violent Sleep Of Reason (Nuclear Blast)

I have been following Meshuggah for a long time. In fact thinking back, having first discovered them when I was 15 years old, being 30 now means I have literally been listening to them for half my life. Which is… Continue Reading →

Tardive Dyskinesia – Harmonic Confusion (Playfalse Records)

Chances are that despite their 10-year existence and their recent UK Tech-Fest performance, you may still not have heard of this lot. Judging by the amount of sparks that are flying off the Greek metallers’ latest full-length and their peers’… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

WeaksaW – The Wretched Of the Earth (Lifeforce)

Formed in Montpellier, France back in 2008 and influenced by bands ranging from Behemoth to The Deftones to Origin to Mogwai(?!), WeaksaW have a very different sound. With a very djent-heavy technical approach to metal, the five piece already have… Continue Reading →
