Archspire – Relentless Mutation (Season Of Mist)

Archspire – Relentless Mutation (Season Of Mist)

A bit of history to this Canadian band who were originally called Defenestration before changing to Archspire, they have two albums and an EP out previously all of which I have purposely not listened to prior to reviewing this third album. This plainly because the.. Read More
Dragonforce – Reaching Into Infinity (EarMusic)

Dragonforce – Reaching Into Infinity (EarMusic)

Dragonforce is one of those bands that you either love or loathe as the band hits us with their seventh album with new drummer Gee Anzalone showing the fans what he can do. Their last album “Maximum Overload” was a decent if unambitious album when.. Read More
Xoth – Invasion Of The Tentacube (S/R)

Xoth – Invasion Of The Tentacube (S/R)

Read that album title again….”Invasion Of The Tentacube”. Maybe it’s due to being a grumpy 45 year old but I’m not usually a fan of ‘comedy metal’. There’s a place for humour but I don’t necessarily want it shoved in my face. I won’t lie….... Read More
Alien 2: On Earth - Ciro Ippolito (88 Films)

Alien 2: On Earth – Ciro Ippolito (88 Films)

I have picked up nearly all of 88 Films Italian Collection imprint and been pretty pleased with most of them. It’s been a good chance to upgrade a fair few import DVD’s to hi-def Blu-ray transfers and on the whole they have really been polished.. Read More
Iron Savior – Titancraft (AFM)

Iron Savior – Titancraft (AFM)

Well, Iron Savior have been exposed to a level of criticism that many of the other bands I have reviewed haven’t experienced. See, I’ve been listening to this at home, whereas many of the other albums I listen to bounce off into my ears during.. Read More
Wormed – Krighsu (Season of Mist)

Wormed – Krighsu (Season of Mist)

This is a band who have played live alongside Goratory and Vomit Remnants. To be honest that tells me more than being told that their sci-fi technical death metal style is the framework for their “atmospheric” songs. The songs could be about anything but I’ll.. Read More
Oranssi Pazuzu – Värähtelijä (Svart)

Oranssi Pazuzu – Värähtelijä (Svart)

These Finnish psychonauts have been around bamboozling the senses since 2007 and this is their fourth album. I think it is fair to say they were pretty unheard of in the UK until their third disc Valonielu dropped via Svart in 2013. For many that.. Read More
Voivod – Post Society (Century Media)

Voivod – Post Society (Century Media)

It was early 2013 when we last got a Voivod album, the excellent Target Earth and the band have been busy tearing it up live since then. Luckily hunger has been abated catching them a few times. They hit the stage on the high profile.. Read More
IIVII – Colony (Consouling Sounds)

IIVII – Colony (Consouling Sounds)

Deep into space or beneath the ocean are two places that music often transport you to and they are places that I certainly like to dwell mainly due to the fantasy elements as they are places that most of us will never traverse. It is.. Read More
Fear Factory - Genexus (Nuclear Blast)

Fear Factory – Genexus (Nuclear Blast)

It’s been quite some time since I’ve listened to new Fear Factory material, roughly 10 years I guess. & while an ardent Gene Hoglan fan I neglected to get any FF while he was in the band. Guess I need to rectify that, but that.. Read More
Tuliterä  – Tulikaste  (S/R)

Tuliterä – Tulikaste (S/R)

Unlike many folks I know, I don’t have a problem with instrumental albums. Many of the albums I own and play fall into that category, albeit they all seem to be by bands called ‘Symphony’ something or the something ‘Orchestra’; yep, like many metal heads.. Read More
Contamination – Luigi Cozzi (Arrow)

Contamination – Luigi Cozzi (Arrow)

Although never prosecuted, Contamination made in 1980 by Luigi Cozzi comes from the golden era of Italian splatter movies ending up embroiled amidst the video nasty furore. Showing what a dogs arse the whole panic was it had no real problems in later years flying.. Read More
