Toxic Holocaust – Primal Future (eOne)

Has it really been 20 years?! Joel Grind came onto the scene, I remember being excited about the first couple of full-length releases (there were a fair few splits and demo releases also), I still remember the vibrant vinyl of… Continue Reading →

Nocturnal Breed – We Only Came For The Violence (Folter)

I would struggle to think of a new genre of Metal that has had as much of an impact as Black Metal has had. Sure you have Nu-Metal, Deathcore, Metalcore and even Groove Metal but all of these genres have… Continue Reading →

Wraith – Absolute Power (S/R)

Well, this is a turn up for your listening pleasure. This version of Wraith are US blackened thrash (not the UK chaps whom were ‘Hungry (for a shot of your love)’ a few years back) nor the dodgy Malaysian band… Continue Reading →

Bewitcher – Under the Witching Cross (Shadow Kingdom)

Bewitcher are a really cool band, their demo tapes dragged me into their filthy dirty speedier metal quite some time ago, this is their second full length having previously worked their socks off in the underground scene on the back… Continue Reading →

Midnight, Hellripper, Aggressive Perfector & Heavy Sentence – London Dome 12/4/19

Time for a night of lust, filth, speed and sleaze and it is finally here, the return of Midnight, back in the UK for the second time and the first since Live Evil Festival back in 2012. They have tried… Continue Reading →

Vanik – II Dark Season (Shadow Kingdom Records)

Well it’s the right time of the year for this. Vanik is the live guitarist for black n filth metal noise mongers Midnight but it has to be said that this is very clearly a second cousin to that band,… Continue Reading →

Bonehunter – Children of the Atom (Hells Headbangers)

This is this Finnish troop’s third release, admittedly I’d completely missed their second encounter, but based on their debut, I wanted to hit this one. It does exactly as I thought it would… Many reviews of their earlier material compared… Continue Reading →

Midnight – Sweet Death and Ecstasy (Hells Headbangers)

We know Midnight here, you know Midnight too. After raising their profile on their last studio album, mainman Athenar comes back with another sterling release, but with some more elements than I expected. First up is ‘Crushed by Demons’, which… Continue Reading →

Midnight – Shox Of Violence (Hells Headbangers)

Midnight. A one man nasty, sleazy, blackened, blasphemous thrash band from the apparent spiritual home of dirty metal – Cleveland, Ohio. If you’re not familiar with Midnight already, think Venom playing Motorhead covers while smashed on JD, beer and a… Continue Reading →

Vandallus – On The High Side (High Roller)

Now this is a surprise. Vandallus features two thirds of the satanic royalists Midnight, namely Steve Dukuslow (drums) and Shaun Vanek (guitar, drums Bass) and this trio is completed by Jamie Vanek (vocals/guitars). However, the other Jamie from Midnight did… Continue Reading →

Deathgasm – Jason Lei Howden (Studiocanal)

A heavy metal horror film, should be right up our street. However past experiences of the limited sub-genre have proved this is not necessarily going to be the case. The problem being \\\metal/// per-se sets itself up for ridicule and… Continue Reading →

Bunker 66 – Screaming Rock Believers (High Roller)

Well as ‘Seduce Me Tonight’, the first track of this gnarly little album, hit me with all the subtlety of being punched by the Anti-Nowhere League’s logo powered by a Celtic Frost riff my first thought was “Midnight”. It’s not… Continue Reading →
