The Body & Full of Hell – Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light (Thrill Jockey)

All Pigs Must Die – Hostage Animal (Southern Lord)

For those unfamiliar with this act it contains a raft of notable personnel, namely Ben Koller (Converge), Matt Woods and Adam Wentworth (Bloodhorse), Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy) and Brian Izzi (Trap Them). I have skirted the fringes of All… Continue Reading →

Complete Failure – Cross Burner (Season Of Mist)

Lunatic Hooker – Embracing The Filth (Black Bow)

Spawned out of a cocktail of frustration and disillusionment with the music industry, BOSS HM-2 pedals and a mixture of grindcore, southern USA styled Sludge and death metal, London based five piece Lunatic Hooker are certainly an interesting mix, just… Continue Reading →

Necroblood – Collapse of the Human Race (Iron Bonehead / Amor Fati)

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 →

The Drip – The Haunting Fear Of Inevitability (Relapse)

This US grind act came across my path via a friend who recommended them to me in 2014 with their “A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics” EP that I promptly bought after listening to a few tracks online. Grindcore is not… Continue Reading →

Wormrot – Voices (Earache)

‘#MakeEaracheGrindAgain’ This single hashtag across the RJD main stage video screen at this year’s Bloodstock 2016 festival said enough. Even if it was hard sometimes to make out the tracks being advertised, one look at the imagery said enough –… Continue Reading →
