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 →

Undead Prophecies – Sempiternal Void (Listenable Records)

Death metal, eh? I mean, one minute there you are in a thrash metal t-shirt and drinking cider down the park listening to “Scream Bloody Gore”, you blink, and then the next moment you’re rapidly approaching your mid 40s, and… Continue Reading →

Devouror – Slay For Satan (Metal Zone)

New year, new EP, new band. Fresh start and all that. Well, I say fresh but this fetid blast of ‘bestial deathcult warfare’ is not exactly the sweet smelling air of some Norwegian forest. Nah, this is a short three… Continue Reading →

JT Ripper – Gathering of the Insane (I Hate)

Well, this worked out a little different than I thought it might. Looking at the initial promo blurb, which talked about a German power trio taking an old school approach to heavy metal, I thought I’d be listening to something… Continue Reading →

Slaegt – The Wheel (Van Records)

This month sees Slaegt launch their third full length in just four years. The Danish quartet project a quirky upbeat nature through their music, even on early releases which were more straight-forward black metal. “The Wheel” continues where last years… Continue Reading →

Gruesome – Twisted Prayers (Relapse)

There’s no school like the old school, or so they say. For me personally I would like to think that this modern age has still given birth to some exceptional bands, granted we may never see anyone reach the dizzy… Continue Reading →

Blood Tsunami – Grave Condition (Soulseller)

Blood Tsunami’s members have been spread across various bands over the past few years. The Norwegian thrash outfit are now back in business and bring “Grave Condition” to the metal table as their latest offering five years after their last… Continue Reading →

Goatwhore – Vengeful Ascension (Metal Blade)

Respected New Orleans blackened thrashers, Goatwhore find themselves taking a slightly different tack on the seventh album of their career, “Vengeful Ascension”. Looking to capture their live essence on record, they utilised the services of their own soundman, Jarrett Pritchard…. Continue Reading →

Gruesome – Dimensions of Horror (Relapse)

When both current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed and Malevolent Creation unite to create a sound that pays homage to the forefathers of death metal, you know you’re pretty much guaranteed an audible pleasure. American death super group Gruesome… Continue Reading →

Merciless Death – Taken Beyond (High Roller)

If you didn’t know any better, it would be tempting to think that there is some kind of mini “new wave of first wave death metal” thing going on, what with the re-release of this album (originally self-released by the… Continue Reading →

Amenophis – Demos 1991-1992 (IHate)

A bit of  metal curio here for you, bringing some historic demos to you from a band I confess I knew nothing about before getting this to review. Amenophis, it turns out, were a Swedish death metal band operating between… Continue Reading →

Satan’s Wrath – Die Evil (Metal Blade)

Now I’ll start off by being honest here: I am no Satan’s Wrath’s expert. In fact, the main reason for volunteering to do a write-up of ‘Die Evil’ was my curiosity about their debut album, a copy of which I’ve… Continue Reading →
