Blitzkrieg Baby – War Gods (Beläten)

I had been waiting on this to leave a foul taste in my ears and this “little ray of sunshine” is certainly doing so as I sit hear listening to it, sweating from the hottest day of the year whilst… Continue Reading →

Autokrator – Hammer of Heretics (Krucyator Productions)

What’s that racket? Oh yes, it must be the latest Autokrator release and boy have they turned things up a notch or two since last time round. When I say turned things up, of course, I don’t mean the bombastic… Continue Reading →

N.K.V.D. – Totalitarian Industrial Oppression (Krucyator Productions)

Blitzkrieg Baby – Porcus Norvegicus (Neuropa)

We all like to be scared don’t we? It releases endorphins and gives an adrenaline rush that is quite like no other. Films and books are a good way of getting the fear although as you get older it is… Continue Reading →

Plutonium – Devilmentertainment Non Stop (SR)

Listening to v.e.g.a. yesterday got me thinking that black metal and industrial go together so fantastically well it’s a shame more bands don’t do it. Plutonium, a solo act fromSweden, is another fine example of this integration of styles and… Continue Reading →
