Foetal Juice – Gluttony (Gore House Productions)

Here lies a salutary lesson and one I have heeded. Do not judge a book by its cover…ever…unless it’s a map of course but then is that a book? Who knows? And would you please get the fuck on with… Continue Reading →

Live Burial – Unending Futility (Transcending Obscurity)

It’s nice to see bands grow, when you can remember seeing them as some tiny band in a pub only to witness them be signed to a more major label. It can of course ruin bands making them play to… Continue Reading →

Nerve Saw – Peril (Testimony Records)

For a debut album, Finnish band Nerve Saw (great name), seem to be existing an almost monistic existence from a virtual world perspective with very little in terms of a social media presence. It’s almost as if the band are… Continue Reading →

This is a German Death metal band whom have a remarkable sound and presence, like the masters Death, Benediction and Obituary. References also include Morgoth, but hey, you get the picture. Temple of Dread started last year when Ex-Slaughterday member… Continue Reading →

Beheaded – Only Death Can Save You (Agonia)

I don’t make much of a secret of it, Brutal Death Metal to me is the pinnacle of music, aside from Iron Maiden of course, but that is another subject for another time. I first discovered Brutal Death Metal some… Continue Reading →

Sinners Bleed – Absolution (War Anthem Records)

Now there’s lazy and there’s lazy but regardless of (the very good I would expect) reasons behind the 16-year gap between Berlin based Sinners Bleed’s debut album and this their second offering ‘Absolution’, it means the stakes are relatively high… Continue Reading →

Possessed – Revelations Of Oblivion (Nuclear Blast)

Being responsible for creating a genre is a pretty big burden. People expect a lot from you, and after all why should they not? However often these bands can equally be overshadowed by more contemporary bands or at least those… Continue Reading →
