Soul Grip – Not Ever (ConSouling Sounds)

Soul Grip are a five piece from Ghent in Belgium and what rages in my ears is their second full length of post Blackness.  I can hear the eyes rolling in their sockets. “More short haired folk mixing My Bloody Valentine… Continue Reading →

Venom Prison – Samsara (Prosthetic Records)

Okay, confession time. I took on this review intending to do a hatchet job on the mediocrity of deathcore/slam in general. However, a cursory listen to this album proved that Venom Prison have a lot more to offer than the… Continue Reading →

Kings Destroy – Fantasma Nera (Svart)

There’s something very satisfying in the earthy, deep and reverberating bass lines of stoner rock. They go straight to your guts and remind you of your most basic feelings and instincts. I liked that sound when it first appeared and… Continue Reading →

Finis Omnivm – Cercle (S/R)

Bands that are seen as genre-defying naturally tend to stick in our minds. For me as a complete genre Nazi I strangely adore when bands defy being put into a box because it gives me as a reviewer so much… Continue Reading →

NAG – Nagged To Death (Fysisk Format)

Can’t complain, this is the right way to get ‘nagged to death’ especially when the means of doing so is by delivering us a nice slab of vinyl. It was a timely arrival too as I have been reading A… Continue Reading →

Billy Bio – Feed The Fire (AFM Records)

Believe it or not, while I may have heard of Biohazard for nearly 30 years, I have never actually listened to a single album. Sure, I’ve heard a good many songs on compilations, samplers and watched music videos, so I… Continue Reading →

Zapruder – S/T (Apathia)

“Friendship, fun and rock n roll” is the statement behind this mind-twisting album from Zapruder. At its musical heart is a mathcore style strongly reminiscent of Dillinger Escape Plan, so you can expect to be screamed at. The manic screaming… Continue Reading →

Sick Of It All – Wake the Sleeping Dragon! (Century Media)

Hardcore isn’t exclusively a New York phenomenon, but it is appropriate to the gritty city. Sick Of It All have been doing it loud and proud for 32 years, and are now on their twelfth album. If I were to… Continue Reading →

Kevlar Bikini – Rants, Riffage and Rousing Rhythms (Geenger Records)

Grab a Kevlar Bikini, you too can look sexy in a war-zone and it’s guaranteed to confuse and distract your enemy! I can’t see such a fashion item catching on particularly but I am sure I have seen such accoutrements… Continue Reading →

Uniform – The Long Walk (Sacred Bones)

Brooklyn duo, Uniform, reached dizzying heights of success following the release of ‘Wake in Fright’ – the album received mass critical acclaim, with two tracks featuring in the newest season of Twin Peaks, and most recently the pairing teamed up… Continue Reading →

Leeched – You Took The Sun When You Left (Prosthetic Records)

For me, hardcore is one of those styles that whilst crude on the surface is not uniform and has a lot to offer. It would be too posh to call it a genre. Anger and energy stand at the centre…. Continue Reading →
