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 →

Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records)

Teutonic threesome Panzer Squad began in 2012 and “Ruins” is their second full length release, following 2016’s “Coming to your Town”.  Heavy Metal’s preoccupation with the machines of War is understandable. Death contraptions of steel and iron that destroy and terrorize… Continue Reading →

Dreadful Fate – Vengeance (I Hate Records)

Like old German thrash? Miss the days of “Pleasure To Kill” and “Infernal Overkill”? Do you have the first two Exumer albums on constant rotation?  Well, if that’s the case, this record will make you throb so hard you’ll artex… Continue Reading →

Blood Tsunami – Grave Condition (Soulseller)

Blood Tsunami’s members have been spread across various bands over the past few years. The Norwegian thrash outfit are now back in business and bring “Grave Condition” to the metal table as their latest offering five years after their last… Continue Reading →

Necrodeath – The Age Of Dead Christ (Scarlet / Terror From Hell)

Although Necrodeath have been going since 1985 it was after they took a ten year break that I originally discovered them through their comeback album Mater Of All Evil. It was hardly surprising our paths would cross due to the… Continue Reading →
