Barrabus – S/T (Undergroove)

Barrabus – S/T (Undergroove)

Well it’s been a while since last confronting the dulcet tones of Paul Catten. In fact if memory serves it was Damnation Festival 2011 when he last screamed at me via A Man Called Catten with songs from favourite beat combo Medulla Nocte. Now they.. Read More
Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Crust, death, doom, dirt fans rejoice Yorkshire’s finest purveyors of filth Vallenfyre are back with album number three. Really this lot should need no introduction at all. Spearheaded by Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) and Hamish Glencross (ex My Dying Bride) this reminds us of the.. Read More
Evo – Warfare (High Roller)

Evo – Warfare (High Roller)

Not sure why we’re reviewing this as Evo clearly is a man who genuinely won’t give a fuck what I think (quite right too). Maybe the record company wants us to say nice things. Will I? We’ll… Evo, last name I always assumed being Stick,.. Read More
Wolfbrigade – Run with the Hunted (Southern Lord)

Wolfbrigade – Run with the Hunted (Southern Lord)

Sweden’s lycanthro-punk legends return after five years with the release of their 9th album (6th under the name Wolfbrigade), ‘Run with the Hunted’. Wolfbrigade have had a colourful history; starting out as Wolfpack, the band eventually changed monikers to avoid association with a neo-nazi prison.. Read More
Interview – MANTAR

Interview – MANTAR

German duo, MANTAR, are in the midst of tearing through Europe, annihilating one city at a time with their explosive blackened sludge interpretations of punk rock. We caught up with vocalist/guitarist Hanno ahead of their show at the Black Heart in Camden – the van.. Read More
Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Out of the blue a sudden announcement came that German Sickblackartists Fäulnis were preparing a new album and I patiently awaited it to fall in my promo in-tray downloading it the second it did. From then I have been immersing myself back in their somewhat.. Read More
Hyenas – Deadweights (Pelagic Records)

Hyenas – Deadweights (Pelagic Records)

If you didn’t know Pelagic Records is the label run by Robin Staps from The Ocean who you should recognise. The label is packed with excellent bands ranging from post rock to grindcore as this new proposition from Germany unveils a debut album that keeps.. Read More
Midnight – Shox Of Violence (Hells Headbangers)

Midnight – Shox Of Violence (Hells Headbangers)

Midnight. A one man nasty, sleazy, blackened, blasphemous thrash band from the apparent spiritual home of dirty metal – Cleveland, Ohio. If you’re not familiar with Midnight already, think Venom playing Motorhead covers while smashed on JD, beer and a nose full of the devil’s.. Read More
Overkill - The Grinding Wheel (Nuclear Blast)

Overkill – The Grinding Wheel (Nuclear Blast)

Overkill are probably my most respected band, during the quiet years of music (ahhh the 90’s!), this band continued (as did some others I might add, I know!) to record great thrash albums, developing with each one. But one thing you will get with any.. Read More
The Clamps - Blend, Shake, Swallow (Heavy Psych Sounds)

The Clamps – Blend, Shake, Swallow (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Italian trio The Clamps play a slightly stoner influenced brand of blazing trashy punk ‘n’ metal garage rock ‘n’ roll. Cranking up with the opening instrumental ‘Barracuda’, an exercise in shouting without words “we really know what a riff is!”, they then barrel their way.. Read More
Razor Sharp Death Blizzard – You Will Burn (From Beyond Records)

Razor Sharp Death Blizzard – You Will Burn (From Beyond Records)

Off to Selkirk in Scotland for a slab of discontent via the descriptively named Razor Sharp Death Blizzard which in my mind brings a vision of a bunch of neds going at each other with all manner of lethal implements. This lot are unlikely to.. Read More
Rotten UK - That Is Not Dead (Hells Headbangers)

Rotten UK – That Is Not Dead (Hells Headbangers)

UK82 inspired punk has to be a good thing. Doing it in style is another and this debut from Rotten UK packs a wallop. With the ever present risk of falling into mere imitation, it takes a quality band to capture the vibe and spirit.. Read More
