Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Another review, and yet another band I’d never heard of, in this case Purple Hill Witch. Despite hailing from the wintery realms of Norway, they are not a new addition to that region’s pantheon of corpse paint wearing child frighteners, rather an act that are.. Read More
RAM - Rod (Metal Blade)

RAM – Rod (Metal Blade)

All hail Ramrod the destroyer! Sweden’s RAM had a particularly favourable release in ‘Svbversvm’ on their last outing and have developed with each release since I discovered them on their debut EP. A partial concept album based on Ramrod the Destroyer, in part the first.. Read More
Savage Messiah – Hands Of Fate (Century Media)

Savage Messiah – Hands Of Fate (Century Media)

Now in their tenth year, London’s Savage Messiah have steadily built a loyal following and a firm reputation as one of the UK’s top up and coming metal bands. Aside from well received albums and live slots, they were also nominated for Metal Hammer magazine’s.. Read More
Procession - Doom Decimation (High Roller)

Procession – Doom Decimation (High Roller)

Procession have come a long way. From Chile to Sweden and back again to Chile to record this album, in fact…It has also been four long years since their magnificent sophomore album ‘To Reap The Heavens Apart’, in part presumably due to main man, vocalist.. Read More
High Spirits - Escape (High Roller)

High Spirits – Escape (High Roller)

The ever reliable High Spirits, I missed the chance to see them earlier this year as I had ticket in hand, but no bloody trains, at least I have memories of the last time I swung my hips to this infectious band. Led by multitasker.. Read More
Jack Starr's Burning Starr - Stand Your Ground (High Roller)

Jack Starr’s Burning Starr – Stand Your Ground (High Roller)

I’m all for a bit self promotion – if you think you’ve just recorded a great album then that’s a fabulous thing and you should promote this. Let the world know that your album is pretty bloody good and then wait hopefully for people to.. Read More
Venomous Maximus - No Warning (Shadow Kingdom)

Venomous Maximus – No Warning (Shadow Kingdom)

Texans aren’t generally known for doing things on a small scale so when it comes to generosity with classic sounding riffs we should be able to expect something big from the Lone Star state. Venomous Maximus bring in said generosity with third long player, “No.. Read More
Below – Upon A Pale Horse (Metal Blade)

Below – Upon A Pale Horse (Metal Blade)

The Swedes look determined to bring the doom flame home this year. First with February’s Dautha debut demo Den Förste getting the epic doomers their first proper release on Ván. Then this, Below’s second album, destined to keep the band on a nice upward trajectory.. Read More
Dream Evil – Six (Century Media)

Dream Evil – Six (Century Media)

It has been seven years since any new material emerged from this Swedish metal outfit, that at one time boasted Gus G and Snowy Shaw in the ranks, which isn’t to diminish the stature of the current line-up which is formidable to say the least.. Read More
Epi-Demic – Malformed Conscience (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

Epi-Demic – Malformed Conscience (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

This Canadian act has had a couple of releases out previously as my first dabble with their music was via the split they did with Solanum in 2015. Following on from that is this sophomore which is an explosion of thrash and crossover with a.. Read More
Saturn - Beyond Spectra (Rise Above)

Saturn – Beyond Spectra (Rise Above)

It’s been a while since Saturn’s retro debut that aimed itself quite specifically Hard Rock/Fledgeling Metal from 1974-77. Three years to be precise, but I’m here to report that the band have widened their field just a little (71-78 perhaps…), managing to really nail that.. Read More
Lunar Shadow – Far From Light (Cruz Del Sur)

Lunar Shadow – Far From Light (Cruz Del Sur)

They were right, damn them. Cruz del Sur, in their promotional material, warned that it might take a few listens to take in Lunar Shadow, in all of their glory. I almost didn’t get past the first few bars, if I’m really honest. It was.. Read More
