Cnoc An Tursa – The Forty Five (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

If you turn on any news channel, on pretty much any day, you will see stories about religion inspired war, whether it be Israel, Syria or the frighteningly frequent terror attacks across the globe to name but a few. Sadly, this is not new to.. Read More
Razor Sharp Death Blizzard – You Will Burn (From Beyond Records)

Razor Sharp Death Blizzard – You Will Burn (From Beyond Records)

Off to Selkirk in Scotland for a slab of discontent via the descriptively named Razor Sharp Death Blizzard which in my mind brings a vision of a bunch of neds going at each other with all manner of lethal implements. This lot are unlikely to.. Read More
Haar / Ur Draugr split (ATMF)

Haar / Ur Draugr split (ATMF)

This is an interesting split album, comprising three tracks from Scotland’s Haar and the Australian black metal band Ur Draugr. This comes on the back of 2015 album releases by both bands. I didn’t know either band before this, but after reading beforehand about Haar,.. Read More

Fuath – I (Neuropa)

Scottish band Saor are a name I have seen about although I don’t appear to have had the pleasure of hearing their two albums or catching them live. Recording wise they are helmed by Andy Marshall who has prolifically been participant in the likes of.. Read More
Britney – Britn3y (Superstar Destroyer Records)

Britney – Britn3y (Superstar Destroyer Records)

Warning, this Scottish trio of noiseniks are seriously whacky! They seem to want to be hidden by search engines between the thighs of Ms Spears and have a serious affiliation to all things beefy. This, their cunningly entitled 3rd release came with a predominantly pink.. Read More
Gloryhammer - Space 1992: Rise Of The Chaos Wizards (Napalm)

Gloryhammer – Space 1992: Rise Of The Chaos Wizards (Napalm)

Gloryhammer are not for the faint of heart. This isn’t because their music is intensely heavy or anything, but because they sing tales of legendary and epic proportions about the saviour of the intergalactic empire, Angus McFife. For those unfamiliar with the band, it is.. Read More
Party Canon – Bong Hit Hospitalisation (Gore House)

Party Canon – Bong Hit Hospitalisation (Gore House)

With a name like Party Canon, one could easily think that you would be presented with some sugar and spice pop punk band, ready to sing about the joys of proms, milkshakes and some old shite. However what you are instead presented with is the.. Read More

‘This Island, Our Funeral’ is the second album by the Scottish quartet comprising of Tony Dunn (Vocals, Guitar), Scott McLean (Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals), Ben Brown (Bass Guitar) and Steve Scott (Drums). I’m pretty certain that many of their countrymen should be listening to this album.. Read More
Alestorm - Sunset On The Golden Age (Napalm)

Alestorm – Sunset On The Golden Age (Napalm)

  AVAST YE….Oh, bollocks to it, I really can’t be bothered. Every bloody Alestorm review seems to start with some reviewer doing Pirate impressions – well not me, lets leave that to the band! Nope, no nautical silliness from this reviewer, no matter how tempting!.. Read More

Firebrand Super Rock – Born for the Gallows (Wasted State Records)

Scotland’s Firebrand Super Rock are a terrific live band whom I first discovered at Bloodstock some years ago. Fast forward to recent times and after following a few memorable and often drunken live shows, they are back with their second full album ‘Born for the.. Read More
