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 →

Gohrgone – Finis Ixion (Great Dane Records)

The good run by Great Dane Records continues, with this cheeky little release coming late in the year. I’d not heard anything of Gohrgone before, but a little snurgling around the internet told me a couple of factoids: they’re from… Continue Reading →

Thy Catafalque – Meta (Season of Mist)

After blowing my microbial brain through a nuclear-powered orgasmatron with last year’s full-length Sgùrr, I was slightly surprised Thy Catafalque had any creative juice left in the tank. Not only was Sgùrr one of the best albums I heard last… Continue Reading →

Into Coffin – Into A Pyramid Of Doom (Terror From Hell)

HP Lovecraft and death metal; an unnatural match made in…nuclear chaos. Or is it? I have to say in the past I’ve found the linking of the ideas to death metal average at best and inappropriate more often than not…. Continue Reading →

Orobas / Serpent Spells – Arise In Impurity / Mantras Within Ascending (Godz Ov War / Satanath Records)

How many bands do you need to create a ‘scene’? Well if the answer is ‘more than one ‘ then there is indeed a Bangladeshi blackened death metal scene and kudos to the labels for getting these two debut EPs… Continue Reading →
