Rogga Johansson – Entrance To The Otherwhere (Transcending Obscurity Records)

On one side of the “bread n butter” death metal spectrum we have artists yearning for the glory of yesterday, struggling to stay relevant. On the other side, young whippersnappers with nostalgia in their eyes flap vainly for our attention… Continue Reading →

Revolting – Visages Of The Unspeakable (FDA Rekotz)

Old Rogga Johansson’s a busy bloke. This must be the third album in as many months I’ve had through that he’s played on and he makes Shane Embury look like a bit of a lazy bastard. This is their fifth… Continue Reading →

The Grotesquery – Curse Of The Skinless Bride (Cyclone Empire)

The Grotesquery is one of what I call ‘secret bands’. Only one of my buddies (Trud) has heard of them and we both love their last two albums. It’s odd that the band aren’t more well-known seeing as they feature… Continue Reading →

Interview – Down Among The Dead Men

The debut album from new band Down Among The Dead Men was a real revelation when Ave Noctum got our hands on a review copy; a real gnarled piece of crusty punk/metal with real songs and a cracking atmosphere to… Continue Reading →

Just Before Dawn – Precis Innan Gryningen (Chaos Records)

It seems appropriate in the wake of Jeff Hanneman’s untimely demise that I should find myself confronted with an album centered around themes of war and humanity’s endless quest for destruction. Just Before Dawn (or Precis Innan Gryningen as the… Continue Reading →

Paganizer – World Lobotomy (Cyclone Empire)

Yes it is that man again Rogga Johansson, this time with one of his most long standing outfits Paganizer. Following on from ‘Into the Catacombs’ this sees the further expulsion of filthy old school death and crusty grind going nail… Continue Reading →

Revel In Flesh – Manifested Darkness (FDA Rekotz)

Last years ‘Deathevokation’ debut from German death metallers Revel In Flesh was a cool effort in the Swedeath styled sound. Far from them being overtly observed as a tribute band, Revel In Flesh have a modern momentum based on a… Continue Reading →
