Barrabus – S/T (Undergroove)

Barrabus – S/T (Undergroove)

Well it’s been a while since last confronting the dulcet tones of Paul Catten. In fact if memory serves it was Damnation Festival 2011 when he last screamed at me via A Man Called Catten with songs from favourite beat combo Medulla Nocte. Now they.. Read More
Au-Dessus – End of Chapter (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre)

Au-Dessus – End of Chapter (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre)

Lithuania’s Au-Dessus promise to “push the post black metal borders out” with this album. What I heard in the initial stages was something akin to Novembre, building up in ferocity and intensity. In fact “VI” – “I” to “V” are contained on the band’s debut.. Read More
Jagged Vision - Death is this World (Fysisk Format)

Jagged Vision – Death is this World (Fysisk Format)

Well, I wasn’t really expecting this, if I’m honest. Of course, judging a CD by its cover can be a risky business at the best of times, but upon looking at the smart monochrome cover of this package, I thought to myself, “oh, this is.. Read More
Sibiir – S/T (Fysisk Format)

Sibiir – S/T (Fysisk Format)

This relatively new outfit from Norway released a venomous EP in 2015 by the title of “Swallow & Trap Them” melding black metal vitriol with post hardcore nihilism as the band releases a debut full length that appeared during the latter half of last year.. Read More
Krysthla – Peace In Our Time (Initiate Audio)

Krysthla – Peace In Our Time (Initiate Audio)

The debut album by this Wellingborough based mob ‘A War Of Souls And Desires’ was a vicious S.O.B. make no mistake. Similarly when they tore things up at Bloodstock Festival in the Sophie Tent getting a pit full of ugly in the process, there was.. Read More

Hyenas – Deadweights (Pelagic Records)

If you didn’t know Pelagic Records is the label run by Robin Staps from The Ocean who you should recognise. The label is packed with excellent bands ranging from post rock to grindcore as this new proposition from Germany unveils a debut album that keeps.. Read More
Iron Reagan - Crossover Ministry (Relapse)

Iron Reagan – Crossover Ministry (Relapse)

Having a bad day? Maybe the boss is giving you the shits and the rest of humanity is conspiring to just not play nice? 30 minutes is all you need to cast away these unpleasantries and Iron Reagan may just be the cure. “Crossover Ministry”.. Read More
Nick Noro – Vietnamm (NBRD / Merdumgiriz Records)

Nick Noro – Vietnamm (NBRD / Merdumgiriz Records)

Apparently Californian Noro has been in a thrash metal group called Survival as well as Static Thought who played here at Reading and Leeds Festival (which means we probably wouldn’t have liked em). Listening to tracks from his solo material such as Cut on his.. Read More
Razor Sharp Death Blizzard – You Will Burn (From Beyond Records)

Razor Sharp Death Blizzard – You Will Burn (From Beyond Records)

Off to Selkirk in Scotland for a slab of discontent via the descriptively named Razor Sharp Death Blizzard which in my mind brings a vision of a bunch of neds going at each other with all manner of lethal implements. This lot are unlikely to.. Read More
Rest – S/T (Third I Rex)

Rest – S/T (Third I Rex)

Off to Udine a tranquil looking place in the NW of Italy here and no doubt partly responsible for shattering any peace and quiet in the region we have noise-mongers Rest (certainly not living up to their name) to blame. There’s not a huge amount.. Read More
