Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Transcending Obscurity)

I reviewed Henry Kane’s (actually, the grind alias of Death Metal royalty Jonny Petersson) last album for this very publication, giving it a 7/10, though with more repeated listens, I should have awarded it an 8, as several of the… Continue Reading →

ACxDC – Satan Is King (Prosthetic Records)

It would be fair, to the uninitiated, to write off  a band with a moniker, that is so deliberately obtuse, decidedly antagonistic and damn right comedic, as a joke, non-serious, detritus that belongs in the same bucket of slop as… Continue Reading →

Dripback – Blessed With Less Than Nothing (4 Family Records)

I fucking love Dripback, ever since they erupted like a giant zit in the face of the metal fans in 2011 with the infectious as ebola (but half as pleasant) “Inhaling The Ashes” EP, this bunch of North London yobs… Continue Reading →

Axis Of Despair – Contempt For Man (Southern Lord)

A bit of background here as this Swedish grindcore act has been around for about five years and has released two EPs during that time but also the band is comprised of three ex-members of Coldworker, Oskar Pålsson (bass), Joel… Continue Reading →

Rotten Sound – Suffer to Abuse (Season Of Mist)

I first became aware of Rotten Sound in 2000 when Still Psycho was released. I hadn’t listened to Grindcore since I bought From Enslavement to Obliteration when it came out. I was in for a blast – in many ways.  The… Continue Reading →

Necroblood – Collapse of the Human Race (Iron Bonehead / Amor Fati)

Necroblood’s first full length release Collapse of the Human Race is an absolute tour de force of an album. If wonderfully catastrophic blackened death with a smattering of grindcore thrown in is your thing, then Collapse of the Human Race… Continue Reading →

The Dead Goats – All Of Them Witches (Testimony Records)

I love me a bit of Swedish death metal, and when confronted with a lot of the modern, slam and beatdown laden, cookie cutter death metal bands, I find myself pretty bored at times, and longing for that classic Stockholm… Continue Reading →

Murder Made God – Enslaved (Comatose Music)

There’s something both deeply and fist bumpingly satisfying about well-crafted technical death metal. The immensely powerful riffs, ridiculously fast blast beats and aggressive, gravelly vocals. With their first release since 2013, Greek four piece Murder Made God have unleashed ravenous, Tech… Continue Reading →

Rotten Sound – Abuse to Suffer (Season of Mist)

At what stage does a band become an “institution”? I mean that word in the sense that a band becomes semi-legendary, and a real cornerstone in the genre or sub-genre that they inhabit? These Finns have been about since 1993,… 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 →

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 →

Crucifyre – Black Magic Fire (Pulverised)

This is an interesting one – having a brief scan of the CVs of the members of this outfit reveals a host of interesting (and disparate) names: Afflicted, Nasum, Maze of Torment, Crematory, Kaamos and a fair few others. Having… Continue Reading →
