Zhrine – Unortheta (Season of Mist)

What’s in a name? A lot, apparently. After spending seven years as the not very catchy Gone Postal, the Reykjavík four piece changed their name to Shrine back in 2014, before dropping the ‘S’ to a ‘Z’ in 2015 and… Continue Reading →

Krallice – Ygg Huur (S/R)

Krallice, a name often angrily muttered under the breath of the black metal elite, usually alongside the likes of Deafheaven and Liturgy and accompanied by the adjectives ‘hipster’ and/or ‘bullshit’. To try to shoehorn the New Yorker quartet into such… Continue Reading →

Imperial Triumphant – Abyssal Gods (Code666)

Looking back across the decades of parents, religious groups and self-appointed moral guardians with too much time on their hands during the 60s, 70s and 80s really didn’t know how good they had it. Anyone complaining about the unholy racket… Continue Reading →

Ara – Devourer Of Worlds (S/R)

“Ooooh, that rumble” were the very words uttered from my mouth upon laying the threatening looking disc into the CD track and hitting play. This self-released debut from Wisconsin’s Ara is certainly one to grab the attention from the off,… Continue Reading →

Decimation – Reign Of Ungodly Creation (Comatose Music)

Sometimes this reviewing lark can be a bit dull, another brutal tech death band I thought. This’ll be a load of impossible to remember blasting / pig squealing tripe I thought. A few listens later though and I realised brutal… Continue Reading →

Dementia Senex – Heartworm (Drown Within)

An enjoyable spraying of tooth decay and phlegm here from this Italian five piece, who manage to marry the eerie rumble of ‘Inside the Torn Apart’/’Words from the Exit Wound’ era Napalm Death, the concussive melody of Cult of Luna… Continue Reading →

Interview – Execration

For those who misguidedly believe death metal to be a one dimensional form of music I present Norway’s Execration. Their third album, the aptly titled ‘Morbid Dimensions’, blew me away when I received it for review a couple of weeks… Continue Reading →

Considered Dead – Mentally Tortured (FDA Rekotz)

It’s no surprise that this debut EP from this Brazilian quartet, named after the first Gorguts album, sounds like classic (Schizophrenia / Beneath The Remains) era Sepultura. In fact the influence is worn so obviously on their sleeves that it’s… Continue Reading →

Execration – Morbid Dimensions (Duplicate)

These Norwegians are already the proud fathers of two previous experimental death metal releases – 2008’s ‘Syndicates of Lethargy’ and 2011’s ‘Odes of the Occult’. Having missed the pleasure of both these, ‘Morbid Dimensions’ is my introduction to the group…. Continue Reading →

Sectu – Nefarious (ViciSolum Productions)

Nefarious is one of those albums that just sounds special right from the very off, which is a pleasant surprise! Having given it a good while to soak in, and letting every nuance and punctuation fall into place, jigsaw-like, I… Continue Reading →

Cannabis Corpse – From Wisdom to Baked (Season of Mist)

When I first discovered Cannabis Corpse a few years ago, I was under the impression that they were a parody band who changed song titles and lyrics of Cannibal Corpse songs to cater for the diehard stoners who enjoy death… Continue Reading →

Archspire – The Lucid Collective (Season of Mist)

These Canadian technical death metal merchants began life in 2007 under the name Defenestrated; a name which I assume was influenced by the first Cryptopsy album. Shifting monicker to Archspire in 2009, the band eventually released its debut ‘All Shall… Continue Reading →
