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 →

Creeping Flesh – Scorched (S/R)

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 →

Henry Kane – Den Forstorda Manniskans Rika (Transcending Obscurity)

I feel like a bit ignorant here, but I have no idea who Henry Kane is. I assume it’s a reference to something (maybe the graphic novel?), but it’s not one I’m au fait with. If any reader has an… Continue Reading →

Casket – Ghouls Of Filth EP (Lycanthropic Chants)

Dismember, Autopsy, Grave, Abscess….. like those bands? I do, and the ridiculously talented Marco Brinkmann from Detmold, Germany certainly does! Casket are Marco, (a sound engineer when on his down time from grave robbing and eating babies) and drummer Herr… Continue Reading →

Sentient Horror – Ungodly Forms (Testimony Records)

What do you want from old school Swedish death metal? Well I for one want a tasty blend of brutality & catchiness. I want howling vocals, meaty riffs, fuzzy guitars and pounding drums with a hint of D-beat. Vomitory, Entrails,… Continue Reading →

Johansson & Speckmann – Edge Of The Abyss (Soulseller)

If you look up “Busy motherfucker” in the Oxford English Dictionary, chances are you’ll be confronted by a photo of Swedish guitar lord Rogga Johansson. This bloke is in so many bands he makes Shane Embury look like a workshy… Continue Reading →

Desolate Shrine – Tenebrous Towers (Hellthrasher)

Atmospheric death metal crew Desolate Shrine have been busy this year with the release of their third album The Heart of the Netherworld in January and now the hard-to-find debut gets a re-issue on Hellthrasher after a little over four… Continue Reading →

Lik – Mass Funeral Evocation (War Anthem Records)

Having bashed away at Lik for a few days like a stair-challenged zombie caught in a computer glitch I decided there was only one thing for it. Swedish Death Metal: Trial By Beer. Every time someone bites the dust in… Continue Reading →

Grave – Out Of Respect For The Dead (Century Media)

No introduction needed here apart from to say Grave are awesome. They’ve been wrecking your neck and filling your head with some of the finest Swedish death metal….. ever….. since 1991. If you’ve not heard of Grave then put the… Continue Reading →
