Perdition Temple – Sacraments Of Descension (Hell’s Headbangers)

Some classic religious baiting from a death metal trio here. Nothing new in that but when you consider the last time I encountered former Angelcorpse musician Gene Palubicki he was wearing priestly vestments and conducting a Catholic ceremony you may… Continue Reading →

Scarab – Martyrs Of The Storm (Black Lodge)

I ended up with this as a bit of a surprise if I’m honest. A nice one though as I caught Scarab live at Warhorns Festival in 2016 and really enjoyed their performance. Enough to buy an album. For the… Continue Reading →

The Revenge Project – Deceit Demise (S/R)

Think Nile, think Immolation, think Morbid Angel and you will be on the right tracks with these Bulgarians, The Revenge Project. ‘Deceit – Demise’ is the fifth full length from these pulverising death metal beasts and it is full of… Continue Reading →

Tzun Tzu – The Forbidden City (Lavadome)

Gimmicks in Metal aren’t anything new, from the ridiculousness of the likes of Alestorm to the more intellectual Egyptian themes of Nile. Not to mention all the Lovercraftian and Occult themed artists, it’s pretty safe to say that gimmicks are… Continue Reading →

Blood Incantation – Hidden History Of The Human Race (Century Media)

New music from Blood Incantation has been eagerly awaited ever since debut album “Starspawn” came out in 2016, announcing itself as one of this decades most pivotal and evolutionary compositions in death metal (alongside their undisputed award for Most Unreadable… Continue Reading →

Hideous Divinity – Simulacrum (Century Media)

Do you ever hate on bands for the lamest reasons? Well not so much hate but perhaps not care for. In a very ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ sense we all have preconceived judgements when it comes to… Continue Reading →

Nile – Vile Nilotic Rites (Nuclear Blast)

Though perhaps not requiring introduction to most readers, for the unenlightened amongst you I’ll provide a quick canter through Niles history. Rising to prominence as the popularity of traditional death metal fare waned in the late 1990’s, Nile are oft… Continue Reading →

Body Harvest – Parasitic Slavery (Comatose Music)

Seeing home grown talent is always pleasing, and by home grown in this case I mean country grown. There seems to be a good swelling of bands coming from the UK’s underground recently, most notably for me would be Raised… Continue Reading →

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 →
