Sins Of The Damned – Striking The Bell Of Death (Shadow Kingdom)

Sins Of The Damned from Santiago, Chile, are a speed metal band, teetering on thrash formed just five years ago. After three demos and a split, this is their debut and on Shadow Kingdom Records no less, a label who… Continue Reading →

King Heavy – Guardian Demons (Cruz Del Sur Music)

This is the third release from traditional doom band King Heavy featuring Luce Vee, singer of Hooded Priest and ex-Procession bassist Daniel Saa, based out of Chile. There’s a mix of Trouble and Reverend Bizarre as the PR material suggests,… Continue Reading →

Destroyer 666 – Call Of The Wild (Season Of Mist)

I think it’s fair to say by now that Destroyer 666 are the heavy metal epitome of what does not kill you makes you stronger. Whatever you think of their ultra alpha male tribal/gang philosophy, 2017 showed how hard they… Continue Reading →

Albums Of The Year 2017

PETE WOODS (EDITOR): TOP 20 As others will re-iterate it’s been a crazy year for good music releases and anyone who tells you otherwise is quite frankly a fool. The biggest problem has been keeping up with it all and… Continue Reading →

Procession – Doom Decimation (High Roller)

Procession have come a long way. From Chile to Sweden and back again to Chile to record this album, in fact…It has also been four long years since their magnificent sophomore album ‘To Reap The Heavens Apart’, in part presumably… Continue Reading →

Solstice – Death’s Crown Is Victory (Invictus)

Well this promo turning up was a pleasant surprise. Those of you who bothered to read my End Of Year thing for 2013 would have noticed I have already praised this as it was available as a download from the… Continue Reading →

Poema Arcanus – Transient Chronicles (Solitude)

This little beastie sits next to Procession in my listings. Odd as they both play a style of doom. And both come from Chile. And both have these great, haunting, deep, clean vocals. That’s where similarities end, though. Poema Arcanus… Continue Reading →

In Solitude – Sister (Metal Blade)

Since reviewing the reissue of their debut early this year I have become a firm fan of In Solitude and ‘Sister’ has been one of my most anticipated album releases of the year. Their debut was such a confident and… Continue Reading →

Altar Of Oblivion – Grand Gesture Of Defiance (Shadow Kingdom)

I have a lot of time for Shadow Kingdom records; they continually unearth both items well worthy of resurrection and new releases of serious class. Basically they know Heavy Metal. So despite the fact I didn’t exactly get on withDenmark’s… Continue Reading →
