Novarupta – Disillusioned Fire (Suicide Records)

An interesting fact that I picked up while checking out the background to this album was that Novarupta’s instigator contributed to Terra Tenebrosa’s excellent album “The Reverses”. As some people decide to take up running or learn a language for… Continue Reading →

Crawl – Rituals (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Do you like pro-wrestling? I do, lots of metal fans do as it happens. Then again, some of my mates call it “pants fighting” and suggest I just like watching oiled up muscular men in lycra sit on each other…. Continue Reading →

Eroded – Necropath (FDA Records)

Eroded are a two piece death metal unit from Italy and have been around in one form or another since 2003. “Necropath” is their second full length album and the follow up to 2012’s “Engravings Of A Gruesome Epitaph” and… Continue Reading →

Sadistik Forest – Morbid Majesties (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Transcending Obscurity is fast becoming one of my favourite record labels such is the depth and wealth of their current roster of bands and I can now add the curiously named Sadistik Forest from Finland to that ever growing list… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival 2018 – Day 4, Oslo Norway 1/4/18

Easter Sunday brought the fourth and final day of this year’s Inferno Festival, and another sold out day with a mouthwatering line up was in store. Norwegian black metal band Djevel got the evening underway and they wasted no time delivering their… Continue Reading →

Sentient Horror – The Crypts Below (Testimony Records)

Back in 2016 I was lucky enough to get the debut Sentient Horror album “Ungodly Forms” through to review…..and I won’t lie, it made me chub up a bit. The ludicrously good, old school Swedish DM vibe….. expertly replicated by… Continue Reading →

Goregast – Covered In Skin (FDA Records)

Strange. A short EP, re-release five years on from a 7″ turned into CD with a bonus Grave cover ‘Soulless’ on it, from a band still ‘on hiatus’. Great cover art from Basic Art suggesting some real old school rotting… Continue Reading →

Under the Church – Supernatural Punishment (Pulverised)

A second album so quickly? Well, maybe not actually quickly, given that their last record, the rather fun “Rabid Armageddon” came out in 2015. Still, I guess time does seem to work rather speedily when spent in the company of… Continue Reading →

Deny The Urge – As Darkness Falls (G.U.C.)

`As Darkness Falls’ is German death metal fanatics Deny The Urge’s third album, and it really does pack quite a punch. I’ve heard a LOT of death metal over the years, particularly so-called `old school’ death metal; very often it… Continue Reading →

Blood Of Seklusion – Servants Of Chaos (FDA Records)

I wasn’t familiar with Blood of Seklusion prior to receiving this and having read the opening promo blurb that, rather confusingly stated “Swedish death metal from Italy” I started to frown and get a bit grumpy. Now Italy is famous… Continue Reading →

Warcrab – Scars Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

I like the simple things, in music as well as in life. Let me explain….. Now in “real life” I’m somewhat of an accomplished barbecue chef. While I enjoy, and get a kick out of doing long, slow cooks like… Continue Reading →

After their first two EP’s Unravelled by War and Rising Terror, 2016 saw the return of Swedish Death Metallers Creeping Flesh with their latest demo Scorched. This delightful little demo consists of three tracks packed to the brim with speed,… Continue Reading →
