Aenaon – Hypnosophy (Code666)

Nox Formulae – The Hidden Paths To Black Ecstasy (Dark Descent)

Nox Formulae are a new one on me but apparently they’ve taken some time out of their busy schedule (trying to free the dark one from behind the thin veil of human reality) to release an album. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out.. Read More

Murder Made God – Enslaved (Comatose Music)

Murder Made God – Enslaved (Comatose Music)

There’s something both deeply and fist bumpingly satisfying about well-crafted technical death metal. The immensely powerful riffs, ridiculously fast blast beats and aggressive, gravelly vocals.
