Alfahanne – Atomvinter (Indie Recordings)

Alfahanne are an anomaly. When the Swedes offered up their debut “Alfapokalyps” in 2014 interest was piqued due to the members being ex members of well respected black metal bands and the plethora of cult figures they brought in as… Continue Reading →

Implore – Alienated Despair (Century Media)

I seem to have been wandering around with my head in the clouds of late, listening to a lot of ethereal, expansive, math/space/alt rock that whilst impressive from a song writing, musicianship and production perspective, sometimes you need something else,… Continue Reading →

Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life – Don’t Turn Away (Overground Records)

11 new songs for a summer’s day. If you don’t know who this particular Steve is you are certainly ignorant. Vocalist and Anarcho Punk godfather with Crass, his was the voice of rebellion in the mid 70’s and early 80’s… Continue Reading →

Dispyt – Livsglädje (Elitbolaget)

Dis pyt, dat pyt, any pyt this lot play near is likely to result in a neck wrecked and a pile of bodies on the floor. Puns aside this is serious and full on crust punk from Finland and although… Continue Reading →

Halshug – Drom (Southern Lord)

Back in the day, when all was well with the world, and all that mattered was the next Death gig, or a new Megadeth t-shirt or having enough money to get the bus to school and have enough left over… Continue Reading →

Victims – The Horse and Sparrow Theory (Relapse Records)

The Horse and Sparrow Theory is the seventh full length from the Swedish crust punks Victims, in a career spanning over twenty years.  For those who do not have a degree in economics the album title refers to the ‘trickle… Continue Reading →

Deathcrush – Megazone (Apollon Records)

It’s possible that you’re thinking this band is some type of old school black metal worship courtesy of the seminal release by infamous Norwegian act Mayhem, but this debut album is light years from that scene. This trio is also… Continue Reading →

The Meads Of Asphodel – Running Out Of Time Doing Nothing (Godreah)

First full length album in 6 years and there may actually be a sigh of relief that The Meads are not tackling anything biblical or historical this time around and are just running…. They do seem to go down hugely… Continue Reading →

Turbocharged – Above Lords, Below Earth (GFY Productions)

Sweden’s Turbocharged have been on the periphery of my extreme metal radar for a number of years but I have never really got round to delving into their back catalogue fully so I opted to take this album on for… Continue Reading →

Indian Nightmare – By Ancient Force (High Roller Records)

This international act comprises a couple of guys from Italy, and one from each of Turkey, Indonesia and Mexico and the sonic devastation they purvey on their sophomore equates to being mauled by a pack of wolves. The band blends… Continue Reading →

Martyrdöd – Hexhammaren (Century Media)

In a genre with a blueprint as regimented as crust punk/d-beat’s, it’s difficult to see how after 18 years a band with these foundations could continue to keep things fresh, however, here are Martyrdöd doing just that. Returning from the… Continue Reading →

Bob Malmström – Länge leve (Elitbolaget)

Punk! And as it should be: loud, fast, angry, trashy, vulgar and respectless. Länge leve, has got it all, including a “fuck you” attitude. Or how else to call it when a Finnish band send their release to a British… Continue Reading →
