Atarka – Sleeping Giant (S/R)

When I first looked up the band name, I was directed to a Brazilian folk metal band with an affinity for alcohol rather than the quintet from Birmingham. Thankfully their style is far more aggressive and more fun for me… Continue Reading →

Sortout – Conquer from Within (Dr Music)

“Arise, Sort Out, Overcome” is the motto of this Austrian metalcore band. It sounds rather clichéd, not to mention similar to the booming announcement you hear every day on Britain’s railways: “See it, Say it, Sorted”. To their credit, this… Continue Reading →

Suicide Silence – Become The Hunter (Nuclear Blast)

It’s probably not fishing in a hyperbolic pond to suggest that Suicide Silence, since their inception way back in 2002, have undergone what could best be described as a number of anus horribilis in recent times. But let me cleave… Continue Reading →

Sylosis – Cycle Of Suffering (Nuclear Blast)

An award for the most unexpected release of the year thus far goes to Reading’s Sylosis having retuned from what seemed at the time to be a very definite hiatus (that usually segues into full time retirement from said band)… Continue Reading →

Atena – Drowning Regret and Lungs Filled with Water (Indie Recordings)

An Oslo quartet that are purported to blend influences from hip hop and classical composers into their metalcore. Now that final genre often sends me running but there is something about the bands logo of a giant inverted cross with… Continue Reading →

Une Misère – Sermon (Nuclear Blast)

Une Misère were completely unheard of before winning the Wacken Metal Battle back in their home country of Iceland. Their victory saw them play at Germany’s largest outdoor metal festival before they returned home to wow crowds at Eistnaflug –… Continue Reading →

Fit For An Autopsy – The Sea Of Tragic Beasts (Nuclear Blast)

Despite a revolving door of vocalists, New Jersey’s Fit For An Autopsy, have been around since 2008 and have managed to generate a lot of positive ‘buzz’ (I think that’s the lexicon the youth of today use?) during their tenure… Continue Reading →

Necrotted – Die For Something Worthwhile (Rising Nemesis Records)

Hailing from Southern Germany with an impressive back catalogue behind them, the wonderfully monikered Necrotted return with this a celebratory EP to mark their 10 years of existence. It’s a short, sharp kick in the balls, an aural equivalent of… Continue Reading →

Madvice – Everything Comes To An End (Time To Kill Records)

Madvice are a 4 piece from Italy who have been described as a thrash-melodeath hybrid kind of band. With this in mind, you would expect some cutting riffs, surging paced sections and some massive sounding moments. Whilst these do appear… Continue Reading →

Equilibrium – Renegades (Nuclear Blast)

Equilibrium are on their own musical journey – an epic one obviously, but it’s one that is increasingly keen to defy musical tags and labels. It seemed to start with 2016’s “Armageddon”, which saw them nudging slightly away from their… Continue Reading →

Thy Art Is Murder – Human Target (Nuclear Blast)

Human Target is the fifth album from Sydney’s Thy Art Is Murder and if you’re familiar with their back catalogue of work, you’re going to have some inkling as to what to expect from their latest offering.  They stick with… Continue Reading →

Mediøkrist – Traumwelt (Timezone Records)

Mediøkrist are a six piece metalcore band hailing from the Northrhine-Westphalia region of Germany and are set to release their debut album “Traumwelt” which translates as “Dreamworld”. Although the release is not intended to be a ‘concept’ album in the… Continue Reading →
