Bombs Of Hades – Phantom Bell (Black Lodge)

If dirty, crusty, death n roll is your thing look no further. These Swedes have been together since 2002 and between them have an incredible number of bands under their collective bullet belts with Guitarist and vocalist Jonas Stallhammer still… Continue Reading →

Body Count – Carnivore (Century Media)

Many years ago now I went into a local record store and stumbled upon a copy of the 1994 Body Count album, Born Dead. I picked it up with great delight and noted the 90’s Death Metal looking artwork and… Continue Reading →

Gorilla – Gorilla / Maximum Riff Overdrive (S/R)

Dear readers, the supposedly “landmark” age of 50 is now well and truly behind me; does that make a difference to how I live my life? Nope, not one jot. However, there are significant times in popular music that are… Continue Reading →

Revel in Flesh – The Hour of the Avenger (War Anthem Records)

Album number five, Revel in Flesh (RIF) still make an unearthly racket! For those who made it to their UK show of recent times you would have witnessed a really cool proper death metal guitar tone, a howling old school… Continue Reading →

Aggressive Perfector – Havoc at the Midnight Hour (Dying Victims)

‘Satan’s Heavy Metal’ was a raw demo released some 3 years ago, I have witnessed the band live on numerous occasions and I must say, this debut album release is a slap in the face surprise. The raw energy remains,… Continue Reading →

Barbarian Swords – Totemic Anal Turbofucker (Third-I Rex)

In contrast to the sprawling doom death epics that appeared on the split earlier this year, reviewed by fellow scribe Andrew Doherty (you can read about it here), whose description of slithering deathliness perfectly described those two songs, but here… Continue Reading →

Bombus – Vulture Culture (Century Media)

Over the years I’ve seen, surprisingly enough, one hell of a lot of bands live; what else would you expect from a fifty year old whose first concert of choice was Motörhead in 1984? Amongst those many shows, I’ve even… Continue Reading →

Violation Wound – Dying To Live Dying To Die (Peaceville Records)

This US acts last album, “With Man In Charge” was a vitriolic assault on the senses laying waste to all those who dared to listen to it as Reifert and his cohort continues to poison us with dense riddled punk… Continue Reading →

Phil Campbell – Old Lions Still Roar (Nuclear Blast)

As a huge fan not only of Motorhead, but also more specifically the Phil Campbell era, when I saw this arrive at Ave Noctum towers, I was really excited to hear what Phil had been up to. Apparently he’d harboured… Continue Reading →

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 →
