Thanatos – Violent Death Rituals (Listenable)

In the midst of recent times has there ever been a more apt soundtrack than Death Metal? The whole world appears plunged into perhaps the closest thing to a zombie apocalypse this earth is ever likely to see. Although truth… Continue Reading →

Slaughter Messiah – Cursed to the Pyre (High Roller)

Belgium’s deadly thrashers…a statement of fact from the PR material. Their earlier material has made waves for myself and I could not wait to hear their new output. One thing that is a touch missing is the large striking band… Continue Reading →

Bütcher – 666 Goats Carry My Chariot (Osmose)

Do we ever stop musically evolving? Yes and no, I think that there are certainly those who stagnate and cease to indulge in anything new in as much as even later albums from the bands they enjoy. Yet to counter… Continue Reading →

Coffin Rot – A Monument To The Dead (Blood Harvest)

Blasting out of Portland, Oregon come Coffin Rot with their debut full length album “A Monument To The Dead”. Not a bad turn around as they only formed in 2017. In that time they’ve released two demos & a split… Continue Reading →

Burial Remains – Trinity Of Deception (Transcending Obscurity)

Seven tracks, twenty five minutes, old school death metal…… what’s not to like? Well…. Not much actually as this is a total blast and another win for Transcending Obscurity that has an absolutely stellar roster of bands. Burial Remains formed… Continue Reading →

Abbath – Outstrider (Season Of Mist)

As a long-time fan of Immortal I am starting to feel like the tug of love corpse painted child. The parents can no longer see eye to eye and are dropping us kids off at a Toby Carvery to be… Continue Reading →

Protector – Summon The Hordes (High Roller)

If anything is ever labelled as cult (or kvlt) it generally means I will like it. That goes for things outside of music also, for example film. I’m a huge advocate for underground horror cinema in the vein of Troma… Continue Reading →

Warfist – Grunberger (Godz Ov War Productions)

Be warned….. I’m gonna gush like a broken fridge all over this one. Let’s get it out of the way right now….. I can’t remember the last time I played an album so fun and so unashamedly METAL! as this… Continue Reading →

Avantasia – Moonglow (Nuclear Blast)

I’ve always thought of Avantasia as Edguy’s more mature, more refined sibling. Even though Edguy is the older of the two, Edguy still likes to go out and party whereas Avantasia is more likely to have friends around for dinner…. Continue Reading →

Insanity alert – 666 Pack (Season Of Mist)

Party thrash. The antithesis of Straight Edge. Beer kegs. Steins. Dayglo toxic waste. Big brimmed caps and hi top trainers.  Music for drinking not thinking. Fans of Municipal Waste, Gama Bomb and F.K.U will love these Austrian fellas. The tracklisting is… Continue Reading →

Kreator, Dimmu Borgir, Hatebreed, Bloodbath – London The Roundhouse – 16/12/18

Great thing about a gig starting early on a Sunday is that you can actually get there in good time and watch the first band. As the lights dimmed and the intro tape started playing, Bloodbath wandered on stage shrouded… Continue Reading →

Necronomicon – Unleashed Bastards (El Puerto Records)

While they may have been around for 34 years now, Necronomicon only released four albums before taking a 10-year hiatus between ’94 and ’04, and are now releasing their ninth album without appearing to have lost any vitality along the… Continue Reading →
