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 →

Considering the vast amount of death metal bands out there in the world, there are relatively few who capture the true essence of death metal. Of course, this can mean different things to different people, but for those people who… Continue Reading →

The Grotesquery – The Facts and Terrifying Testament Of Mason Hamilton: Tsathoggua Tales (Cyclone Empire)

Kam Lee (Massacre etc) and Rogga Johansson (Paganizer/Ribspreader) are at it again. Their second release as a collective, and The Grotesquery bring back their horror death metal with a tale that picks up where their debut release left off. Again,… Continue Reading →
