Moscow Death Brigade – Boltcutter (Fire And Flames Music)

Moscow Death Brigade – Boltcutter (Fire And Flames Music)

When nostalgists wax lyrical about the 1990’s there is something that is always overlooked amongst the plaid shirts, baggy tie dye and bucket hats. At one point you would have found me jumping around a field in Berkshire (more specifically a medium size tent) to.. Read More
Is - Into My Own (Wolfspell Records)

Is – Into My Own (Wolfspell Records)

This is the sophomore release by one-man band Is featuring Nøkken on all instruments and vocals. Formed only 3 years ago he has already released numerous EPs and singles with the cold and frost appearing to be his main thematic go to. There are six.. Read More
Smothered Bowels – Dead Cunt Dance (Bizarre Leprous Production)

Smothered Bowels – Dead Cunt Dance (Bizarre Leprous Production)

It’s time to get that politically correct handbook, rip the pages out of it and wipe your bum on them. Yep these Russian grinders are about being offensive and acting like very rude and naughty school-kids so be warned if you are of a sensitive.. Read More
Blazing Rust - Armed to Exist (Pure Steel)

Blazing Rust – Armed to Exist (Pure Steel)

Russia’s Blazing Rust was a find made possible by the “Masters of Metal” series of releases that have come out recently, in particular Volume 2 that came with Warlok, Carriage and Oath of Woe. This is traditional heavy metal, done the right way. There’s plenty.. Read More
Selcouth – Heart Is The Star of Chaos (I, Voidhanger Records)

Selcouth – Heart Is The Star of Chaos (I, Voidhanger Records)

Selcouth apparently is an adjective, which means strange, unusual and wondrous. The band, which is a collective of musicians from Finland, France, Spain, Russia and Argentina, most certainly got their name right. What I sensed here was an avant-garde artistic project. That description possibly equates.. Read More
Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

The whole concept of this intrigued me. Eoront is an atmospheric black metal project from Siberia. This is their third album. Nature pours through the opening track “The Rain”. The drops of water can be heard and there is a crackling fire, but it’s as.. Read More
Aborted Fetus – The Art of Violent Torture (Comatose Music)

Aborted Fetus – The Art of Violent Torture (Comatose Music)

Russian slam pioneers Aborted Fetus have returned to the scene with their fifth full length release The Art of Violent Torture. Those who are a fan of no nonsense, unadulterated slam are in for a right treat, as this album is pretty much slam in.. Read More
Lashblood - Unbeing (Aesthetic Death)

Lashblood – Unbeing (Aesthetic Death)

I’m always wary whenever I see term “avant-garde” applied to a band. This is the case with Russia’s Lashblood. It doesn’t take long on this follow-up to the band’s debut album “Philosophy of Self-Flagellation: Being and Nothing” (2012). A withering riff with a vocalist whose.. Read More
Ultar – Kadath (Temple of Torturous)

Ultar – Kadath (Temple of Torturous)

Many bands have tried to propel themselves into the vast potential of post-black metal soundscapes. Many have failed – in fact most don’t even break free of the tried and tested formulas, which are now getting more than a little worn with overuse. The latest.. Read More
N.K.V.D. – Totalitarian Industrial Oppression (Krucyator Productions)

N.K.V.D. – Totalitarian Industrial Oppression (Krucyator Productions)

Just looking at the title line this all sounds somewhat scary doesn’t it? Well it should do too, as anyone naming themselves after The Russian People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs is not someone you would want knocking at your door and you would probably be.. Read More
Big Guns - Six Shooter (S/R)

Big Guns – Six Shooter (S/R)

Apparently this grizzled saddletramp of an EP is something lurking in the collective psyches of Goatpsalm/Frozen Ocean’s Vaarwel and ‘Postie’ who I know significantly less about, something they felt the need to saddle up and ride out on. Their Bandcamp page also describes it as.. Read More
