Cropsy Maniac – Carnage (HPGD)

I could sum this release up in a short paragraph…. “like splatter movies?……  like death/grind?……. like death/grind that’s all about splatter movies? If the answer’s yes, then stop reading this now and buy this EP!” But then the editor would… Continue Reading →

Benighted – Dogs Always Bite Harder Than Their Master (Season Of Mist)

Born To Murder The World – The Infinite Mirror Of Millennial Narcissism ( Extrinsic Recordings)

Arcticcircle- Where Ice Meets Ocean (S/R)

As I have no doubt ranted about in the past I simply cannot abide imaginative genres. I understand that bands must develop, change style, create new sounds and so forth but claiming a sound as a new genre via one… Continue Reading →

Impending Doom – The Sin and Doom Vol II (Longbranch)

I did not know anything about this band when I requested to give it a spin. The blurb promised a heady mix of Death metal Grind and Hardcore. My interest was piqued. Now I must say having listened to The… Continue Reading →
