Uivo Bastardo – Clepsydra (Ethereal Sound Works)

Uivo Bastardo are a brand-new band from Lisbon with members of Kronos And Concealment in their ranks. Clepsydra is an ancient time-measuring device worked by a flow of water. Put them together and what have you got? Well the answer… Continue Reading →

Global Scum – Odium (NRT Records)

Global Scum is the one-man project of Austrian multi-instrumentalist Manuel Harlander and “Odium” is the second release from the project, following on from the highly praised debut offering “Hell Is Home” which came out in the closing stages of 2017…. Continue Reading →

Sinners Bleed – Absolution (War Anthem Records)

Now there’s lazy and there’s lazy but regardless of (the very good I would expect) reasons behind the 16-year gap between Berlin based Sinners Bleed’s debut album and this their second offering ‘Absolution’, it means the stakes are relatively high… Continue Reading →

Undead Prophecies – Sempiternal Void (Listenable Records)

Death metal, eh? I mean, one minute there you are in a thrash metal t-shirt and drinking cider down the park listening to “Scream Bloody Gore”, you blink, and then the next moment you’re rapidly approaching your mid 40s, and… Continue Reading →

Opprobrium – The Fallen Entities (High Roller)

If you’re anything like me then you’ll enjoy the history of genres and music in general. I love a good discussion on the sort of ‘what came first’ theories, where do genres begin? Why the sudden leap? For example look… Continue Reading →

JT Ripper – Gathering of the Insane (I Hate)

Well, this worked out a little different than I thought it might. Looking at the initial promo blurb, which talked about a German power trio taking an old school approach to heavy metal, I thought I’d be listening to something… Continue Reading →

Soulfly – Ritual (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 20 years since Max Cavalera announced the presence of Soulfly on the music scene with their self titled debut album and despite numerous line-up changes over the years and some very noteworthy guest appearances, the band has… Continue Reading →

Metal Allegiance – Volume II: Power Drunk Majesty (Nuclear Blast)

Throw some huge metal behemoths into a room together and you are either going to get a massive car crash with egos battling for supremacy, or at the other end of the spectrum, you are going to get pure technical… Continue Reading →

Soulfly, Remus, Archelon – Sheffield Corporation 7/8/18

As I turn the corner to the Sheffield Corporation I am met with the imposing vision of the Soulfly tour bus, emblazoned with the unmistakable logo adorned across the front of the trusty steed. Soulfly haven’t brought a tour package… Continue Reading →

Heksen – Post-Mortem Psychanalyse reloaded (Great Dane Records)

Well this is disappointing. I asked the editor to send me, and I quote “any old shit”. The reason being that I’d had a good run of late with everything I’ve been sent being pretty damn good. Now call me… Continue Reading →

Twinge – Enslaved By Human Mind (S/R)

Back at the turn of the new millennium, give or take a year or so, Kerrang! was an actual relevant thing to me musically. It sometimes gave compilation CD’s and actually provided some decent features and helped widen my growing… Continue Reading →

Ektomorf – Fury (AFM)

While having formed 25 years ago, I’m only familiar with Ektomorf’s last 15 years of work and must admit that it has been rather consistent and I doubt those early observations shall be going away any time soon. But hey-ho,… Continue Reading →
