Infidel Reich – Reichenstein (Helter Skelter Productions)

Working class Death Metal”. “Political correctness must come to an end” Time has come to balance the scales” So say Infidel Reich an SJW baiting band from both sides of the Atlantic. Archeron founder and vocalist Vincent Crowley and ex Asphyx… Continue Reading →

Cropsy Maniac – Carnage (HPGD)

I could sum this release up in a short paragraph…. “like splatter movies?……  like death/grind?……. like death/grind that’s all about splatter movies? If the answer’s yes, then stop reading this now and buy this EP!” But then the editor would… Continue Reading →

The Grotesquery – The Lupine Anathema And Other Blood-Curdling Tales Of Horror And The Macabre (Xtreem Music)

The Grotesquery is one of my ‘secret bands’. Not too many of my mates have heard of them and yet this band have produced some of the finest horror concept death metal albums that you’ll ever hear. It’s odd that… Continue Reading →

Skeletal Remains – Devouring Mortality (Century Media)

At what point did Death Metal stop being Death Metal and become Old School Death Metal? Who knows I would guess the transition happened somewhere in the 90s, around about the time that Brutal Death Metal was on its uprising… Continue Reading →

Ultra Damaged: Damaged Inc. Zine Anthology 1985-2017 – Maniac (Cult Never Dies)

“Wanna buy a fanzine mate?” Ah those desperate calls for beer money at gigs have long gone. No more hawking wares with names like Organ, Dog, P’tahk, Satellite and err Kentucky Fried Afterbirth. The Internet has taken over and the… Continue Reading →

Akatharta – Spiritus Immundus (Pulverised Records)

Blimey, this is one scary record. Now, just like I’m not the biggest black metal fan (gloomy, shed burning, badger painted fairies) I’m not the biggest fan of doom metal either. With a few exceptions I tend to find it… Continue Reading →

Resurgency – No Worlds…Nor Gods Beyond ( FDA Records)

No Worlds… is the second album by underground Greek death metal stalwarts Resurgency, and a mighty album it is indeed. Although Athens is a pretty sunny place most of the time, from listening to this album I would suspect that… Continue Reading →

Gruesome – Dimensions of Horror (Relapse)

When both current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed and Malevolent Creation unite to create a sound that pays homage to the forefathers of death metal, you know you’re pretty much guaranteed an audible pleasure. American death super group Gruesome… Continue Reading →

Interview – Kam Lee

One of the finest death metal vocalists of all time, Kam Lee is a busy bloke. He’s death metal royalty in my view – having performed in some of the most seminal bands in the genre (Mantas / Death /… Continue Reading →

Wombbath – Downfall Rising (Dark Descent)

Twenty-two years after their brilliant debut ‘Internal Caustic Torments’ arrived, at long last Sweden’s Wombbath are back with another slab of unadulterated death metal. Perhaps what distinguished these guys from many of their native contemporaries was the clear homage to… Continue Reading →

The Grotesquery – Curse Of The Skinless Bride (Cyclone Empire)

The Grotesquery is one of what I call ‘secret bands’. Only one of my buddies (Trud) has heard of them and we both love their last two albums. It’s odd that the band aren’t more well-known seeing as they feature… Continue Reading →

Obituary – Inked in Blood (Relapse)

It’s been five long years since Obituary’s last album ‘Darkest Day’ emerged to whack us round our skulls. In the meantime there’s been a fair amount of disruption in the band’s ranks. First Frank Watkins abandoned his bass role, defecting… Continue Reading →
