Heboïdophrenie – Origin of Madness (S/R)

Heboïdophrenie – Origin of Madness (S/R)

The greeting is horrible screams and impressive artwork and lyrics which would be entirely in place on any Grindethic album. The emerging and lasting sound is in fact that of Vader, Cannibal Corpse, Carnifex or any other brutal death metal band that you can think.. Read More
Aborted - The Necrotic Manifesto (Century Media)

Aborted – The Necrotic Manifesto (Century Media)

Belgium’s Aborted are a band that certainly stick out from the crowd, they have become pretty much the definition of a revolving door line-up, with a huge roster of former members behind them, but they have managed to keep their individuality despite this by way.. Read More
Bloodsucking Freaks – Joel M Reed (88 Films)

Bloodsucking Freaks – Joel M Reed (88 Films)

Of all the lurid titles vying with each other for attention in the golden days of exploitation film none had quite the compelling call of Bloodsucking Freaks. Just one mention of the film was enough to have gore fans literally giving their right arm for.. Read More
Carcass -  Surgical Steel (Nuclear Blast)

Carcass – Surgical Steel (Nuclear Blast)

All fans of extreme metal over a certain age should be overjoyed at the final return of Carcass, legendary, groundbreaking and unique purveyors of gore-drenched yet witty and sharp, crushingly heavy death/gore/grind/metal… Call it what you will, Carcass made it totally their own. For those.. Read More
Necrotic Disgorgement – Documentaries of Dementia (Comatose Music)

Necrotic Disgorgement – Documentaries of Dementia (Comatose Music)

Arghhh, my eyes! Just look at that awful cover art. A grim scene, made even more horrible due to the fact it’s so badly digitally rendered that it just looks unbelievably bad. Had it not have been for the portrayal of an unfortunate bunch of.. Read More
MURDER MOST REEL - Part Two: Pseudo Snuff

MURDER MOST REEL – Part Two: Pseudo Snuff

  For this second offering in my series on snuff-themed cinema I want to begin by discussing one of my bug-bears in genre film journalism. Torture Porn. Nope, it’s not the films themselves I have an issue with, in fact a number of my favourite.. Read More
Intestinal – The Rottening (Hellthrasher Productions)

Intestinal – The Rottening (Hellthrasher Productions)

From what I remember of this band’s debut album ‘Human Harvest’ they were a harsh rotten death metal band from Sweden. Go forward a mere two years, and these Swedes have earned their rotten death metal stripes. The sound is much clearer, and it is.. Read More

Norwegian slam death metallers Kraanium have been on the go since 2001, releasing a demo ‘No Respect for the Dead’ in 2002 then, from 2002 to 2006 the band took a break to concentrate on their other projects. Luckily the drummer at the time was.. Read More
Never To Arise – Hacked To Perfection (badGod Music)

Never To Arise – Hacked To Perfection (badGod Music)

I’m not what you’d call a hardened death-head, but when a disc arrives with a booklet filled with grainy images of mutilated women and crude drawings of snuff-film scenarios one’s interest was definitely piqued. Of course you will have read my article on this fine.. Read More
Interview - Wound (2010) director David Blyth

Interview – Wound (2010) director David Blyth

 Wound is a film I recently reviewed on this site; an independent film from New Zealand that can best be described as psychological surrealist art-horror. It’s a film that leaves the viewer with more questions than answers, and thankfully director David Blyth was happy to.. Read More
MURDER MOST REAL - Snuff-themed films to see before you die (in a damp basement at the hands of a deranged psycho with a super-8)

MURDER MOST REAL – Snuff-themed films to see before you die (in a damp basement at the hands of a deranged psycho with a super-8)

When it comes to modern film audiences, there is very little capable of shocking. Sure, you get the stray straight chick dragged in to watch Last House On The Left with her boyfriend who walks out in disgust, but by and large horror fans are.. Read More

Cannibal Corpse – Torture (Metal Blade Records)

Another three years pass, and the loyal death metal legions have had to suffer the ignominy of some unholy abominations, within a seemingly stagnant scene where any chance of real talent in the underground seeing light of day has been all but extinguished due to.. Read More
