Petbrick I (Rocket Recordings)

My expectation of this album by the duo called Petbrick was of something electronic and industrial. But there’s talk too of punk attitudes and experimentation, so maybe my expectation was off the mark. The duo in question are Wayne Adams… Continue Reading →

Ancient VVisdom – Mundus (Argonauta)

‘A Godlike Inferno’ landed back in 2011 following a collaboration album between Ancient VVisdom and none other than Charles Manson. It put them on the map for me and I enjoyed it although cannot remember exactly what was said about… Continue Reading →

Devil Master – Satan Spits On Children Of Light (Relapse Records)

Well here’s a big slice of frantic metal joy! Devil Master are a quartet hailing from Philadelphia that play an unholy mash up of blackened death metal and punk with a liberal dollop of goth rock – think Nunslaughter playing… Continue Reading →

Ilsa – Corpse Fortress (Relapse)

Washington D.C five-piece Ilsa are well versed in the art of doom-death, having cut their teeth on splits with the likes of Hooded Menace, Coffins and Seven Sisters of Sleep. However, the defining characteristics of the band’s previous albums are… Continue Reading →

Caïna – Christ Clad In White Phosphorus (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

This UK based act helmed by Andy Curtis-Brignell have always been interesting and highly experimental. I remember the near neo-folk acoustic lushness of 2008 album ‘Temporary Antennae’ being a challenging listen with many ideas flowing through it. Fast forward to… Continue Reading →

Broken Teeth HC – At Peace Amongst Chaos (Nuclear Blast)

This Manchester crew has been fairly busy over the last few years releasing a slew of seven inchers to gain a name for themselves locally mainly but also nationally and beyond our shores due to touring escapades I suspect. Their… Continue Reading →

Unkind – Pelon Juuret (Relapse)

‘Melodic’ is a curious word to those of us drawn to less-than-mainstream stuff. I mean pop your average Beyonce fan down in front of something by, say, Chthonic or Selfless as recently reviewed varying examples and they’ll just hear some… Continue Reading →

Ancient VVisdom – Deathlike (Prosthetic Records)

Ancient VVisdom are a band whose reputation is certainly as dark as their music; their debut release ‘Inner Earth’ was a split with the infamous Charles Manson before they exploded onto the scene in 2011 with their first full length… Continue Reading →
