Dreams Of The Drowned – I (Drowned Anthem Records)

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 →

Ministry – AmeriKKKant (Nuclear Blast)

I think it’s best to ignore all the “never playing”, “making an album” again under the Ministry banner we have heard from Uncle Al. Things are said in the heat of the moment and following the sudden death of Mike… Continue Reading →

Sex Dumpster – Lord Alcohol (S/R)

Chances are, unless you have no job / family / life and spend every waking hour scouring the internet for the latest in underground extreme music, that you have probably never heard of Alaskans….Sex Dumpster. The band name itself conjures… Continue Reading →

Godflesh – Post Self (Avalanche Recordings)

I have to admit that I have little time to go chasing music that doesn’t turn up here. New Electric Wizard not received, oh well, new Morbid Angel well we didn’t get it either, fuck em, new Godflesh, where is… Continue Reading →

Antisect – The Rising Of The Lights (Rise Above)

Old crustbags never die, it just smells like it. Ah yes Antisect, the original squat the lot Anarcho punks have a hell of a history behind them which stretches right back to 1982 and has somehow resisted and existed and… Continue Reading →

Diablo Blvd- Zero Hour (Nuclear Blast)

Fronted by stand up comic Alex Agnew, Belgium’s Diablo Blvd are anything but a humorous act. Quite the contrary, latest release “Zero Hour” finds the band exploring humankind’s darker side within a world that just keeps getting things wrong. Their… Continue Reading →
