Smiling Assassin – Plight Of The Millennial (Warren Records)

Keeping the flame of British hardcore punk alive, Yorkshire’s Smiling Assassin have virtually blasted out of the starting blocks. Having only formed in 2019, one might say they’ve been born in troublesome times so are well placed to spew forth… Continue Reading →

Bait – Revelation of the Pure (LADLO Productions)

Bait, three guys from Würzburg, Germany, certainly don’t lack ideas, nor energy. There is so much happening on their album Revelation of the Pure that you don’t know where to direct your attention first. Pressing play is like a whirlwind… Continue Reading →

Utilitarian – Fight War Not Wars, Destroy Power Not People (S/R)

The fact that half the title of Utilitarian’s new release is appropriated from CRASS (all property is theft) gives you an idea of the political slant and moral compass of this lot from Sheffield . The band name is shared… Continue Reading →

Obnoxious Youth – Mouths Sewn Shut (Svart)

Like an Ewok drowned in a honeypot this E.P is short and sweet. If you liked American crossover, Britcore and Scandi punk back in the 80’s you are gonna love Obnoxious Youth.  This sounds like it should have featured on… Continue Reading →

Rabo de Toro – S/T (S/R)

Why would a band from Wales name themselves after a Spanish National dish? That was one of the several questions that popped up in my mind while listening to Rabo de Toro’s self-titled and self-released debut album. Another one was… Continue Reading →

ACxDC – Satan Is King (Prosthetic Records)

It would be fair, to the uninitiated, to write off  a band with a moniker, that is so deliberately obtuse, decidedly antagonistic and damn right comedic, as a joke, non-serious, detritus that belongs in the same bucket of slop as… 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 →

Vonülfsrëich – Hyperborëan Hills (Fallen Temple)

I’m often know as a bit of a genre fanatic, it becomes a bit of a joke that I refer to bands or sounds with such specifics. I just can’t help it, it helps me to define everything so much… Continue Reading →

The Good the Bad and the Zugly – Algorithm and Blues (Fysisk Format)

I am a new convert to The Good the Bad and the Zugly.  A great friend of mine insisted I stuck some on about 6 weeks back and I liked what I heard.  These Norwegian punks recently received a Spelleman (Norwegian Grammy)… Continue Reading →

Medium – S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

Although the label is based in India head honcho Kunal seems to spend no short amount of time trawling the globe and looking for the best of death and doom to release to a wider audience. Medium from Argentina are… Continue Reading →

Mondo Generator – Fuck It (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Fans of Mondo Generator must be salivating at the release of this album. Eight long years have passed since Nick Oliveri’s wrecking crew last unleashed their own brand of havoc. Not that the ex-Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age… Continue Reading →

Hereza – Death Metal Drunks (Godz Ov War)

I definitely enjoyed this Croatian bands previous album which I reviewed for the site and stated categorically that this band plays filth encrusted deathliness and since that album it is clear the band has stayed completely within that sphere on… Continue Reading →
