Friendship – Undercurrent (Southern Lord)

It’s a familiar trope of lazy, hackneyed critiquing to take the geographical origins of any band you’re lucky enough to review and wrap your 500 words around tired cultural clichés and pass that off as inspired and insightful reviewing. That… Continue Reading →

NAG – Nagged To Death (Fysisk Format)

Can’t complain, this is the right way to get ‘nagged to death’ especially when the means of doing so is by delivering us a nice slab of vinyl. It was a timely arrival too as I have been reading A… Continue Reading →

Damnation Festival – Leeds University Union 4/11/17

As I approached the University Union in Leeds, on a cold November morning, I could feel the air of anticipation growing, for I was about to embark on the annual bonfire weekend extravaganza that is the Damnation Festival. There were… Continue Reading →

Ósserp – Al meu pas s’alça la mort (Hecatombe Records)

Hola, and in today’s Spanish lesson we explore the phrase “Es hora de moler bastardos.’ Well if the Internet translation tool has not let me down, as frankly I am shite at foreign languages it should translate to ‘It’s time… Continue Reading →

Doctor Livingstone – Triumphus Haeretici (Osmose)

Teethgrinder – Nihilism (Lifeforce)

These Dutch noiseniks have only been in existence since 2013 and already they are spewing forth Nihilism as a follow up to “Misanthropy”. (positive chaps eh?) . These guys chew up grindcore, crust and hardcore, gargle black and death and… Continue Reading →

Wormrot – Voices (Earache)

‘#MakeEaracheGrindAgain’ This single hashtag across the RJD main stage video screen at this year’s Bloodstock 2016 festival said enough. Even if it was hard sometimes to make out the tracks being advertised, one look at the imagery said enough –… Continue Reading →

Nails – You Will Never Be One of Us (Nuclear Blast)

Seeing the multitude of ‘sell outs!” and “not as good as their first record” comments, that have plagued the comments sections of preview tracks released from this album, forces you to wonder whether this is actually the case, or just… Continue Reading →

Magrudergrind – II (Relapse)

Brooklyn, New York has spawned some iconic bands over the years across the rock and metal genres, ranging from Hardcore icons Biohazard to Gothic Metal titans Type O Negative and now you can add Grindcore three piece Magrudergrind to that… Continue Reading →

Twitching Tongues – Disharmony (Metal Blade)

I confess this is a band I didn’t know anything about before picking up this album but it seems that they’ve done the rounds in their six years of existence. “Disharmony” is the LA band’s third full album release. Reading… Continue Reading →

Implore – Depopulation (Pelagic)

Right – let’s get amongst it! Implore is a death / grind three piece from Germany. This is their debut LP and it’s fucking good! I could leave it there but the editor would not be too pleased. The band… Continue Reading →
