Cro Mags – In the Beginning (Nuclear Blast)

Now that the naming rights have been sorted out, Harley Flanagan and Rocky George (many should know these names!) come at you with a new release which features the tracks from their two recent EP’s, namely ‘Don’t Give In’ and… Continue Reading →

-(16)- Dream Squasher (Relapse Records)

Despite having a name that’s a copy editor’s worst nightmare (no, these reviews are not copy edited and all grammatical errors, trite phrases, oft repeated tropes and typos are purely down to the writer here), 16 have been around since… Continue Reading →

Bait – Revelation of the Pure (LADLO Productions)

Bait, three guys from Würzburg, Germany, certainly don’t lack ideas, nor energy. There is so much happening on their album Revelation of the Pure that you don’t know where to direct your attention first. Pressing play is like a whirlwind… Continue Reading →

Xibalba – Años en Infierno (Southern Lord)

The title of this latest offering from Californian hellraisers Xibalba couldn’t be more apt regarding the situation society currently finds itself; with the music contained within feeling relevant for such depressing times (volveremos al título del álbum más tarde, para… Continue Reading →

Utilitarian – Fight War Not Wars, Destroy Power Not People (S/R)

The fact that half the title of Utilitarian’s new release is appropriated from CRASS (all property is theft) gives you an idea of the political slant and moral compass of this lot from Sheffield . The band name is shared… Continue Reading →

ACxDC – Satan Is King (Prosthetic Records)

It would be fair, to the uninitiated, to write off  a band with a moniker, that is so deliberately obtuse, decidedly antagonistic and damn right comedic, as a joke, non-serious, detritus that belongs in the same bucket of slop as… Continue Reading →

Body Count – Carnivore (Century Media)

Many years ago now I went into a local record store and stumbled upon a copy of the 1994 Body Count album, Born Dead. I picked it up with great delight and noted the 90’s Death Metal looking artwork and… Continue Reading →

Nukore – One Minute Silence (Blood Fire Death)

“Do you miss the rap metal of the early 90’s,” posits the question of the PR blurb and I look around wondering if someone is asking me a trick question? The answer is of course a big resounding “FUCK NO”… Continue Reading →

Bednja – Doline Su Ostale Iza Nas (Transcending Obscurity)

Hardcore and punk are well established in the underground music scene of Croatia, black metal not so much. This has many reasons, one of them being that Croatia was and still is a less prosperous nation than those where black… Continue Reading →

Wolfbrigade – The Enemy: Reality (Southern Lord)

Having been around for almost a quarter of a century, Sweden’s Wolfbrigade have long been established as a staple of the hardcore scene, having coined the term “lycanthro-punk” along the way. ‘The Enemy: Reality’ is the five piece’s seventh studio… Continue Reading →

Une Misère – Sermon (Nuclear Blast)

Une Misère were completely unheard of before winning the Wacken Metal Battle back in their home country of Iceland. Their victory saw them play at Germany’s largest outdoor metal festival before they returned home to wow crowds at Eistnaflug –… Continue Reading →

Coilguns – Watchwinders (Hummus Records)

You’re probably well aware of some of Switzerland’s biggest exports; army knives, chocolates, cheese, clocks, and cowbells, but did you consider hard core punk metal? No?  Maybe you should.  You may be pleasantly surprised by Coilguns and their third full… Continue Reading →
