Irae – Lurking In The Depths (Signal Rex)

Satan wept, lurking maybe but in typical one-man BM fashion Vulturius has been pumping out releases since 2002. There are somewhere in the region of 36 listed on Metal Archives and he has also been involved in no shortage of… Continue Reading →

Summon – Helios (Godz ov War)

Portuguese band Summon promise us “unrivalled barbarism, wickedness and ferocity” with this EP. This is the third work from the Portuguese death-black metal band, following another EP in 2017, and an album “Parazv Il Zillitv” in 2018. Deep echoing sounds,… Continue Reading →

Innards – Back From The Grave, Straight In Your Face (Transcending Obscurity)

Death Metal right now is probably one of the most interesting genres out there and I don’t just mean within the confines of Metal. I feel like the genre has grown to a stage whereby there are so many different… Continue Reading →

Colosso – Apocalypse (Transcending Obscurity)

There have been plenty of bands that have used the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse as the staging for their sonic annihilation as this Portuguese outfit has four songs for the four horsemen with each having a different vocalist to… Continue Reading →

Ironsword – Servants Of Steel (Alma Mater)

I have a real soft spot for Portugal’s Ironsword. Five albums in twenty five years shows main man Tann (guitars, vocals) has dogged determination to play the true way regardless of fashion, and including this I own four of them…. Continue Reading →

Kommando Baphomet – Blood Gospels Of Satanic Inquisition (Godz Ov War)

Often times I think that if I had a shred of musical talent or indeed had any intention of playing music then I would front a War Metal band. I can’t think of anything more visceral than the Blackened Death… Continue Reading →

Black Cilice – Transfixion Of Spirits (Iron Bonehead)

Obscure is a good word for Black Cilice. A name I have heard bandied about for quite a while by fans of a certain type of black metal yes but with a social media and internet presence seemingly consisting solely… Continue Reading →

Alcoholocaust – Necro Apocalipse Bestial (Hellprod)

Black Metal, the truest of the true, or at least in my mind anyway. The early Norwegian days of the 90’s were a breeding ground for the true and false debate. To my knowledge prior to that Metalheads simply accepted… Continue Reading →

Uivo Bastardo – Clepsydra (Ethereal Sound Works)

Uivo Bastardo are a brand-new band from Lisbon with members of Kronos And Concealment in their ranks. Clepsydra is an ancient time-measuring device worked by a flow of water. Put them together and what have you got? Well the answer… Continue Reading →

The Black Wizards – Reflections (Kozmic Artifactz / Raging Planet)

Damn this modern life for making me have to have a job to pay my bills! Why can’t I be like that Swedish chap who made the news a couple of years ago when he got state benefits to go… Continue Reading →

Ravensire – A Stone Engraved In Red (Cruz Del Sur Music)

Portuguese Epic/Heavy Metal band Ravensire, are back with their third call-to-arms and a continued flag-flying of the Metal standard, planting it firmly where they please with their now expected drive and conviction. Don’t expect keyboards, symphonic bursts, operatic vocals…or for… Continue Reading →

Besta – Eterno Rancor (Lifeforce Records)

Portuguese grinders Besta have a plethora of releases each out delivering an onslaught of pure grindcore mayhem and this latest album continues that violent attitude to song writing with 16 songs of incendiary ferociousness that has hints of modern era… Continue Reading →
