MRome – Leech Ghetto (S/R)

As I discovered on covering last unwieldly entitled album ‘Noetic Collision on the Roof of Hell’ Polish band MRome don’t exactly play by the rules. Truly independent they state that they “are not interested in promoting band members by lame… Continue Reading →

Madvice – Everything Comes To An End (Time To Kill Records)

Madvice are a 4 piece from Italy who have been described as a thrash-melodeath hybrid kind of band. With this in mind, you would expect some cutting riffs, surging paced sections and some massive sounding moments. Whilst these do appear… Continue Reading →

Transport League – A Million Volt Scream (Mighty Music)

A quarter of a century these Swedish roughneck purveyors of hellish boogie have been plying their trade.  They had a break in the mid 2000’s in order to return with 2013’s Boogie From Hell. A Million Volt Scream follows Twist and… Continue Reading →

Domination Inc – Memoir 414 (SPV)

Domination Inc from Athens are a thrash band with a fairy story. Don’t worry I do not mean that they are Megadeth with unicorns and Lars Ulrich as the wicked stepmother (though I would pay to see that). Rather, the… Continue Reading →

Uivo Bastardo – Clepsydra (Ethereal Sound Works)

Uivo Bastardo are a brand-new band from Lisbon with members of Kronos And Concealment in their ranks. Clepsydra is an ancient time-measuring device worked by a flow of water. Put them together and what have you got? Well the answer… Continue Reading →

Global Scum – Odium (NRT Records)

Global Scum is the one-man project of Austrian multi-instrumentalist Manuel Harlander and “Odium” is the second release from the project, following on from the highly praised debut offering “Hell Is Home” which came out in the closing stages of 2017…. Continue Reading →

Kludde – In de Kwelm (Consouling Sounds)

It’s always worth keeping a close eye on the furtive black metal scenes of countries such as Belgium and Holland; there is no escaping the fact they put much of what is going on in the UK underground to shame…. Continue Reading →

Athanasia – The Order Of The Silver Compass (ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records)

This is the début album by a trio of pretty accomplished musicians with a healthy résumé. Their logo and album cover definitely having roots in Caleb Bingham and Brandon Miller’s previous band Ascension. They are joined by veteran drummer Jason… Continue Reading →

Warrel Dane – Shadow Work (Century Media)

I’d just swapped out the Sanctuary discography I had in my car for a month with Nevermore, so all I’ve been hearing of late is Warrel’s distinct, but very dynamic vocals. Thankfully, it’s not a voice I’m likely to get… Continue Reading →

Eversin – Armageddon Genesi (My Kingdom Music)

The guys in this band have been around for almost 20 years having existed previously as Fuoco Fatuo (but not the death metal band of the same name I should add) prior to changing their name to Eversin. Eversin has… Continue Reading →

Ihsahn – Àmr (Candlelight)

Solo careers, are they a good idea or are they merely a massive flop? Personally I think they can go either way, but generally they rarely live up to the solo artists prior or more revered achievements. An example of… Continue Reading →

Armored Dawn – Barbarians In Black (AFM)

So I took a look at that cover artwork and expected something like Tyr or Ensiferum. I read that Armored Dawn are from Brazil, so armed with that extra info changed my guess to folk-tinged metal like fellow South Americans… Continue Reading →
