Interview – All Pigs Must Die

Since signing to Southern Lord back in 2011 All Pigs Must Die have gone from strength to strength, with 2013’s ‘Nothing Violates This Nature’ gaining popularity of a monstrous magnitude. Housing members from the likes of Converge and The Hope… Continue Reading →

The Atomic Bitchwax – Gravitron (Tee Pee)

When two thirds of the band are recording and touring with another band it is quite a feat to write and record an album as damn good and rockin’ as Gravitron. When that other band is Monster Magnet who famously… Continue Reading →

Blues Pills – Devil Man – Nuclear Blast

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, there is definitely something retro in the air at the moment.  Forget the Glastonbury attending NME trendoids who think “Old School” means something from the late nineties, there seems to be… Continue Reading →

Slegest – Loyndom (Dark Essence)

Slegest was the vision of guitarist Ese when he left Vried in 2010 and in essence is taking more traditional heavy metal and marinating it in black metal for a while, keeping it dirty and dark. Knowing that, the slow… Continue Reading →

Helhorse – Oh Death (Mighty Music/Target)

Danish band Helhorse have been making a good bit of noise in the scene recently and all sorts of people had been telling me to lend them an ear. So here we are and within seconds of the perfectly titled… Continue Reading →

Church of Void – Dead Rising (Svart)

Svart is a small Finnish label, that despite being independent, and from a country with a small population, is managing to produce some excellent albums of late.  Even searching just the website you’re currently reading (go on, use the little… Continue Reading →

It’s 2013, and Devil release their follow up to their first album, ‘Time To Repent’, a release that was highly lauded far and wide for the combination of a lo-fi sound combined with the band’s relentless enthusiasm.  Since they first… Continue Reading →

Treason – Hell Is A Place On Earth (Casket)

London based trio Treason has their roots firmly established in the 80s when the UK metal scene was awash with thrash outfits. At that time the band was a quintet and based on my own experience of the time and… Continue Reading →

Orchid – Wizard Of War (Nuclear Blast)

Another little tease from US doomheads Orchid. A three tracker with one from the forthcoming Nuclear Blast full length (Wizard Of War), one apparently exclusive to this EP (Demon’s Eyes) and one re-recording from the Capricorn debut (Albatross). Wizard Of… Continue Reading →

Bison B.C. – Lovelessness (Metal Blade)

A couple of years ago I reviewed Bison’s sophomore album for our legacy site Metal Team UK and was extremely impressed by the bands super heavy, super rich heavy metal that was inundated with reams of Sabbath like atmosphere. 2012… Continue Reading →

Graveyard – Lights Out (Nuclear Blast)

Typical eh? You wait years for a 70s, Led Zep influenced rock band and two come along at once. Well there are distinct similarities between Graveyard and Witchcraft, perhaps slight ones exaggerated by the similar accents off the vocalists, but… Continue Reading →

Dragged Into Sunlight – Widowmaker (Prosthetic)

When a band is cloaked in a mysterious darkness, such as Dragged Into Sunlight are, it does prick a certain amount of curiosity. It’s not a new concept, secret identities, skulking around in the dark, masked photo shoots, but it… Continue Reading →
