Madball – For The Cause (Nuclear Blast)

Madball – For The Cause (Nuclear Blast)

Back in the late eighties when Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret first let his 12 year old brother Freddy Cricien jump on stage and take the mic no one could have thought that “Madball” Freddy and his pals would still be recording Hardcore and would become.. Read More
Truchlo Strzygi – Pora Umierac (Godz ov War)

Truchlo Strzygi – Pora Umierac (Godz ov War)

“Black and punk metal from Poland” is the minimalist description of this one. If it’s a case of take it or leave it, I’ll take it. Time to die – well, that’s what the title means. It sounds intriguing. The start isn’t anything like the.. Read More
Chaos Before Gea - Chronos (Blood Fire Death)

Chaos Before Gea – Chronos (Blood Fire Death)

This third album by Chaos Before Gea is a rather mixed bag and by that, I mean the Spanish quintet appear to call on a whole host of influences when styling their sound. Open track the “The Void” starts feeling very rocky with soaring clean.. Read More

Svalbard – It’s Hard To Have Hope (Holy Roar)

They sure know how to pick their bands at Holy Roar Records. Svalbard is certainly another stroke of genius. This perfect, angry, energy-laden mixture of melodic death metal, hardcore, crust punk and post-rock with female vocals and socially critical lyrics will no doubt gather a.. Read More
Violation Wound – With Man In Charge (Peaceville Records)

Violation Wound – With Man In Charge (Peaceville Records)

Headed up by Chris Reifert (Autopsy) there is a spattering of releases from Violation Wound who formed in 2014 when I reviewed the bands self-titled debut of which I was very complimentary with its no nonsense skin stripping punk rock. This second full length continues.. Read More
Septic Tank -  Rotting Civilization (Rise Above)

Septic Tank – Rotting Civilization (Rise Above)

As the old saying goes “A leopard can’t change its spots”. When you apply this to bands and side projects it is mostly true- musicians tend to naturally gravitate towards what they know. In the case of Septic Tank, this saying is a load of.. Read More
Zeke - Hellbender (Relapse)

Zeke – Hellbender (Relapse)

Motorhead’s shadow cast long over Lemmy and co’s career. Punk bands especially felt an affinity for the speed fuelled balls out fury the band unleashed.  One band that were certainly ejaculated out of Snaggletooth’s hairy phallus is Zeke. Formed in Seattle in 1992 these guys did.. Read More
Ancst – Ghosts of the Timeless Void (Lifeforce)

Ancst – Ghosts of the Timeless Void (Lifeforce)

Hands up those who want a spot of hardcore-infused black metal crust. Well, it’s perpetually gloomy outside so why not? “Ghosts of the Timeless Void” is Ancst’s second full album, supplemented by a number of Eps and split works over their six years of existence... Read More
Moscow Death Brigade – Boltcutter (Fire And Flames Music)

Moscow Death Brigade – Boltcutter (Fire And Flames Music)

When nostalgists wax lyrical about the 1990’s there is something that is always overlooked amongst the plaid shirts, baggy tie dye and bucket hats. At one point you would have found me jumping around a field in Berkshire (more specifically a medium size tent) to.. Read More
The Atlas Moth – Coma Noir (Prosthetic Records)

The Atlas Moth – Coma Noir (Prosthetic Records)

The Atlas Moth. I had heard of the band before, but somehow, I’ve managed to fully ignore their music so far, even though the band is making the type of music that usually sparks my interest. Hailing from Chicago in the USA, The Atlas Moth.. Read More

Nuisance Of Majority – Savage Ritual (S/R)

Hailing from Kiel in the northern-most reaches of the Schleswig-Holstein state in Germany are Nuisance Of Majority. This band have been kicking around since the early 2000’s and have won praise from many corners, being likened to “A piss-up hosted by Agnostic Front and Entombed”.. Read More
