Implore – Alienated Despair (Century Media)

I seem to have been wandering around with my head in the clouds of late, listening to a lot of ethereal, expansive, math/space/alt rock that whilst impressive from a song writing, musicianship and production perspective, sometimes you need something else,… Continue Reading →

No One Knows What The Dead Think – S/T (Willowtip)

Holocausto – Diário De Guerra (Nuclear War Now)

Grindcore, the ultimate amalgamation of both Metal and Punk. Spawned from a time when Thrash was becoming more accepted by Punks and the likes of Discharge and Crass were becoming more tolerated by Metalheads. For this reason Grindcore to me… Continue Reading →

Refusal – Epitome Of Void (Great Dane Records)

Out of all the Scandinavian death metal scenes Finland has always seemed to have the most violent, the vilest and most repugnant bands to ever come out, and whilst I am new to this Finnish act (they’ve been around since… Continue Reading →
