Deflore & Jaz Coleman – Party In The Chaos (Subsound)

If you have never heard of Italian instrumental duo Deflore, well you can no doubt be forgiven. They have never hit my radar despite having four albums out. If however you don’t know who Jaz Coleman is, well shame on… Continue Reading →

Membranes – What Nature Gives… Nature Takes Away (Cherry Red Records)

The Membranes had always been on my peripheral vision and having been around since 1977 well they should have been. However after seeing them a couple of years back supporting Killing Joke founding member and Louder Than War head honcho… Continue Reading →

Bethlehem – Lebe Dich Leer (Prophecy)

1991 The year of Bethlehem’s inception. Since then they have released a plethora of LP’s, splits and EPs. The style within those recordings has whipped between DSBM, Industrial, Black Metal and the outright weird. In 2016 the present incarnation with… Continue Reading →

Valborg – Zentrum (Prophecy)

Well this is a case of not judging a band on one album, that’s for sure. My only encounter with Valborg before this new seventh album was with the German groups 5th one Romantik. I guess that showed the bands… Continue Reading →

Dool – Love Like Blood (Prophecy)

I think it is fair to say that a follow up to Dool’s debut album Here Now, There Then which arrived early 2017 is highly anticipated. It was a magical album and definitely touched a lot of hearts with its… Continue Reading →

Dreams Of The Drowned – I (Drowned Anthem Records)

It’s no rare occurrence wading through press releases and being promised albums in a similar vein as lots of favourite artists and neither is the disappointment of listening to them and finding very little similar to what you had hoped…. Continue Reading →

Chapel Of Disease – And As We have Seen The Storm, We Have embraced The Eye (Van Records)

I’ve been a big fan of Chapel Of Disease since their 2012 debut album “Summoning Black Gods” and I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing that and their second album,  2015’s amazing  “The Mysterious Ways Of Repetitive Art” for one website… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare – I See What I Became (Neurot Recordings)

Uneasy listening, but what did you expect from Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Sanford Parker (Buried at Sea)? This is the pairs sophomore album following their 2016 debut and is as uncompromising and diverse as you would hope. Kelly and Parker have… Continue Reading →

Butcher In The Fog – A Screaming Reflection (Sleight Of Hand Music)

London trio Butcher In The Fog are a many headed beast. Taking elements of hardcore punk and throwing in helpings of head banging thrash with a touch of old fashioned doom metal, there’s something in there for everyone. I caught… Continue Reading →

Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Well I have listened to this album every day for the last 10 or so. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and it hasn’t been a chore in the slightest. It’s just that a work of this breadth and… Continue Reading →

Primordial – Exile Amongst The Ruins (Metal Blade)

Primordial barely need an introduction. A back catalogue reaching back to the mid 90’s and an enviable reputation as underground metal stalwarts, their reputation is sealed. Ninth full length release, “Exile Amongst The Ruins” finds the band bringing a raw… Continue Reading →
