Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell – Very Uncertain Times (Rise Above Records)

Bizarrely, having finished my chores this morning, just before sitting down to type I checked my assorted social media (okay, I have just one, Facebook; I get too confused by all the assorted platforms available) and the computer was kind… Continue Reading →

Lesbian Bed Death – Born to Die on VHS (Psychophonic Records)

Now I have reviewed a few albums by bands with questionable names. I have also reviewed a few albums that champion the horror flicks of my youth. Freddy Kruger’s Underpants 2017 thrash offering “1981” offered some from column A and… Continue Reading →

Scumripper – All Veins Blazing (Hells Headbangers)

Twenty minutes is all you get so pay attention numbnuts! This is nasty, dirty metal punk encrusted with sacrificial blood and beer stains.  This is the Finnish trio’s debut full length following on from their self titled demo in 2015. The… Continue Reading →

Victims – The Horse and Sparrow Theory (Relapse Records)

The Horse and Sparrow Theory is the seventh full length from the Swedish crust punks Victims, in a career spanning over twenty years.  For those who do not have a degree in economics the album title refers to the ‘trickle… Continue Reading →

Jesus Chrüsler Supercar – Lücifer (Dr. Music Records)

A few years back, Swedish Death ‘n’ Rollers Jesus Chrüsler Supercar unleashed ‘35 Supersonic’. A gnarly, fuzzed-up adrenaline shot of good time, doomy, rock and roll. You’ll be pleased to know that their infernal follow up album ‘Lücifer’ continues this… Continue Reading →

Turbocharged – Above Lords, Below Earth (GFY Productions)

Sweden’s Turbocharged have been on the periphery of my extreme metal radar for a number of years but I have never really got round to delving into their back catalogue fully so I opted to take this album on for… Continue Reading →

Blind Haze – Red Light Fever (S/R)

Ladies and gents, let me take you on a short trip back in time to 1977. Whilst some may think of it as the summer of punk, reality is that despite the legacy of that movement, the music didn’t sell… Continue Reading →

Pulver – Kings Under The Sand (Gates Of Hell)

So if I was to get all imaginary classroom here and ask hands up anyone who has heard NWOBHM legends Tank, there would be plenty of hands shoot up around that metaphorical room. None more so than the five enthusiastic… Continue Reading →

Asomvel – World Shaker (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Yorkshire’s finest return with a new album and line up. These heavy rock n rollers always manage to tee up some top quality sounds. Their influence is well documented; we won’t go to that place this time around. You know… Continue Reading →

Grand Magus – Wolf God (Nuclear Blast)

I have to admit to a certain excitement whenever a new Grand Magus album is about to arrive. The Swede’s have been producing a steady stream of classic sounding heavy metal since 1999 with powerful, uncomplicated songs heavily inspired by… Continue Reading →

Venom – Storm The Gates (Spinefarm Records)

There are some bands out there that the words “seminal” and “influential” seem invented for. There are some bands out there whose back catalogue is so full of such utter bangers that it’s easy (and quite right) to forgive them… Continue Reading →

New Light Choir – Torchlight (Svart Records)

Many things came into my head while I was listening to this album, which is a good thing, but I cannot accept the claim that New Light Choir “are devoid of the trappings of retro worship”. I’d agree that “retro… Continue Reading →
