Echelon – The Brimstone Aggrandizement (Transcending Obscurity)

This is probably the last album review I’ll pen in 2016 for Ave Noctum and fuck me, what a belter to go out on! I could waffle on like normal with some sub Jeremy Clarkson prose but it’s Friday night… Continue Reading →

Stench Price – S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

Avant-Garde Grind-Death…. Those are words I never imagined to see describing the sound of a band, but Stench Price have now brought that into the realms of reality. A truly international super-group of sorts, based out of Siberia for where… Continue Reading →
