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)

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)

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. 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

Expulsion – Nightmare Future (Relapse Records)

Expulsion – Nightmare Future (Relapse Records)

Any band that consists of Matt Olivo (Repulsion), Matt Harvey (Gruesome, Exhumed), Danny Walker (Exhumed, Intronaut, Phobia) and Menno Verbaten (), should be a beast and that is exactly what this debut release is, but I wish it was longer than just short of 14.. Read More

Integrity – Howling, For The Nightmare Shall Consume (Relapse Records)

Few acts can truly be called pioneers but US act Integrity deserve that accolade for spearheading a movement of hardcore that surpassed the parameters of the genre that flourished during the late 70s and 80s by manipulating the genre into something far more complex yet.. Read More
Next to None – Phases (Inside Out)

Next to None – Phases (Inside Out)

I first came across Next to None this year when they accompanied Haken on tour. Loads of action and variety are what I remember about the performance of this band from USA. “Phases” is their second album. “Answer Me” sets us in the mood with.. Read More
