Metal Church – Damned If You Do (Nuclear Blast)

Slegest – Introvert (Dark Essence Records)

Since 2010 and over the course of two previous albums, Stig Ese has steered Slegest on their wonderfully idiosyncratic course towards black ‘n’ roll nirvana. As I have mentioned before, Slegest are a genuine hybrid of black and heavy metal from the roots up rather.. Read More

Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased have been plying their morbid trade on official releases since way back in 1991. It’s been a long, long time since their last full length album, the excellent “Surreal Overdose” back in 2011, but I suspect not even death itself would be able to.. Read More

Convent Guilt – Diamond Cut Diamond (Gates Of Hell Records)

Aussie heavy metal outfit, Convent Guilt deliver their second long player clinging to the golden era sounds of 1978-1982 where the NWOBHM found its feet and today’s giants of our world started to stamp their almighty authority. To worship at such a throne requires respect.. Read More

Iron Lamb – Blue Haze (The Sign Records)

Back in 2015 I had the pleasure of discovering Iron Lamb and writing up their second album “Fool’s Gold”. It was a super enjoyable blast of oily biker rock that, while fun, was a bit too close to Motorhead to get any points for originality... Read More
