Arckanum – Första Trulen (Folter Records)

Killing Addiction – Omega Factor (Xtreem)

The Florida Death Metal scene is one of those which can boast some titans in the genre. Cannibal Corpse, Obituary, Six Feet Under, Death, Morbid Angel, Atheist and Hate Eternal are all well-known names and have helped define some aspects… Continue Reading →

Misanthropic Existence – Death Shall Be Served (Aesthetic Death)

I understand that this album is a re-release on the basis that the original had limited exposure, as is the way when bands on a limited budget can only do so much. Now released through the Aesthetic Death label and… Continue Reading →

Goregast – Covered In Skin (FDA Records)

Strange. A short EP, re-release five years on from a 7″ turned into CD with a bonus Grave cover ‘Soulless’ on it, from a band still ‘on hiatus’. Great cover art from Basic Art suggesting some real old school rotting… Continue Reading →

Esoteric – The Pernicious Enigma (Aesthetic Death)

“Playing anything new tonight?” “Nope not yet!” That’s generally how it has gone the last few times I have seen Esoteric live and I can appreciate this. It might have been 2011 since last album ‘Paragon Of Dissonance’ dropped but… Continue Reading →

Ctulu – Sarkomand (MDD Records)

Not a band I’m overly familiar with, but as this ‘seastorming extreme metal ‘ German band prepare to record and release their fourth album, they also decide to re-release this their second album from back in 2011. I always find… Continue Reading →

Momentum – Fixation, At Rest (Dark Essence)
