Sulphur Aeon – The Scythe Of Cosmic Chaos (Van Records)

‘Twas not so long ago on these very (digital) pages I was ripping into Paragon Impure for taking an idea that’d already been thrashed to death (Marquis de Sade) and beating it further still. Is it therefore hypocritical to sing… Continue Reading →

Prezir – As Rats Devour Lions (Godz OV War Productions)

Prezir are relatively new to the metal community, formed in 2016, with their name translating to the literal meaning of ‘Contempt’ in Serbian. When thinking of death metal juggernauts, Milwaukee isn’t one of your classic destinations to spawn a ravenous,… Continue Reading →

Abhorrent Deformity – Slaughter Monolith (Comatose Music)

The face of Death Metal is changing at a rapid pace with steps along the way that mark new-found genres, but I do feel in some respects that these changes are more rampant than perhaps any other genre in the… Continue Reading →

Eskhaton – Omegalitheos (Lavadome)

Ah, ok. Well first this is a super bit of packaging; excellent cover art and real attention to the internal art/layout too which is a) always nice to see and b) a good sign of intent. If like me you… Continue Reading →

Aborted Fetus – The Ancient Spirits Of Decay (Comatose Music)

Brutal Death Metal, I love it so very much. To me its very existence is spawned from extremity a means of gaining a leg up over each and every predecessor to be something more brutal, fast, vile, shocking and horrific…. Continue Reading →

In Silent – Martwy dopływ wisły (S/R)

Yep this is Polish, no problem with that, we get plenty of music from there and there is no shortage of extreme metal hailing from the country. The band’s Facebook page tells us that they are influenced by the likes… Continue Reading →

Crescent – The Order Of Amenti (Listenable)

Formed in 1998, originally as a black metal band, Crescent are one of the oldest extreme metal bands hailing from the country which inspired the technically gifted, but boring as fuck American death metal band Nile. Being the only Egyptian… Continue Reading →

Khazaddum – Plagues Upon Arda (S/R)

If it’s not the great old one H.P. Lovecraft then its J.R.R. Tolkien and one has to wonder if the two literary greats would ever have envisaged their impact on the extreme metal world but there is certainly no denying… Continue Reading →

Cannabis Corpse – Left Hand Pass (Season Of Mist)

I like pro-wrestling. I find it absurdly entertaining and, like any wrestling fan I have my favourite characters. One of those is The Undertaker.  “that’s all very well Mark you wanker, but this is supposed to be an album review… Continue Reading →

Prezir – Contempt (S/R)

Prezir – Serbian for Contempt are a three piece from Milwaukee Wisconsin who worship at the black altar of Early 90’s extremity. They cite Emperor, Enslaved, Grand Belials Key and Deicide amongst their influences and seek to show contempt for… Continue Reading →

Sincarnate – In Nomine Homini (Hatework)

Romanian band Sincarnate cite their influences as Nile/Dissection/My Dying Bride, and the ominous tones of Portishead, and proudly wearing those on their sleeve, present their second full-length album ‘In Nomine Homini’. Raging death metal with a blackened soul, exhaling doom… Continue Reading →

Shaarimoth – Temple Of The Adversarial Fire (World Terror Committee)

Judging by the band name and the fact this band is from Norway one would assume that this is a black metal band. An assumption that proves unfounded on this sophomore following a debut called “Current 11” released over a… Continue Reading →
