Domination Inc – Memoir 414 (SPV)

Domination Inc from Athens are a thrash band with a fairy story. Don’t worry I do not mean that they are Megadeth with unicorns and Lars Ulrich as the wicked stepmother (though I would pay to see that). Rather, the… Continue Reading →

Krysthla – Worldwide Negative (PHD)

Worldwide Negative is the third album from Northamptonshire’s Krysthla, who’ve been on an upward trajectory since the release of their critically acclaimed 2017 sophomore album Peace in Our Time.  They’ve cemented themselves into the UK metal scene, touring relentlessly, playing… Continue Reading →

Skulldriver – L.D.C. (Elitbolaget)

Firstly, what a fucking great name for a metal band…Skulldriver….fantastic stuff, up there with Parasitic Ejaculation, Anal Cunt and Cannibal Corpse in self determinism. Band names that evoke and accurately paint of picture as to what you’re likely to experience… Continue Reading →

Soulfly – Ritual (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 20 years since Max Cavalera announced the presence of Soulfly on the music scene with their self titled debut album and despite numerous line-up changes over the years and some very noteworthy guest appearances, the band has… Continue Reading →

Devildriver – Outlaws ‘Til The End (Napalm Records)

Dez Fafara doesn’t do things by half, and if the late Neil Armstrong was still with us today, I’m sure he would replicate his famous quote in order to embrace Devildriver’s latest venture, “one small step for man, one giant… Continue Reading →

LeadRobot – ST (S/R)

Groove Metal four piece LeadRobot from Leeds are rather heavy. With clever use of samples, a massive sound, heavy as hell tone and some thundering work from the rhythm section, the four components of the band really pull no punches… Continue Reading →

Decapitated – Anticult (Nuclear Blast)

I’ve been a semi-regular visitor to Poland since the late 90’s, and I’ve brought back loads of Polish metal CD’s on my travels. Decapitated are one of the bands that I really grew to love, particularly with “Winds of Creation”… Continue Reading →

From Eden To Exile – Modern Disdain (Attic Records)

With vast swathes of blustering labyrinthine riffing and warm, throaty vocals this smacks of New Wave of American Heavy Metal, yet brings it back home with a rich, thrashed-up thread running through its core. From the off, “Gospel Untold” offers… Continue Reading →

Voice of Ruin – Purge and Purify (Tenacity Music)

Start off by screaming “Disgust” and go belting off with some punchy thrash-groove metal, and you’ve got an idea of this. It’s got all the growly bits and aggression but thanks to the melody and fluidity it’s quite jolly actually…. Continue Reading →

Body Count – Bloodlust (Century Media)

25 years ago a landmark album in the rap and metal genres was released. Body Count’s debut album got attention, publicity and courted controversy whilst simultaneously laying down another important block in the foundations of what would later become known… Continue Reading →

Nula – Kenoma (Black Bow)

Belgrade based, post-Sludge five piece Nula are rather intense musically. With beer and dope, along with some filthy and heavy sounds as their main influences and being billed as something for fans of Cathedral and Type O Negative, there are… Continue Reading →
