Sentient Horror – Morbid Realms (Testimony Records)

It can be no coincidence that both the title of this the third album from New Jersey’s Sentient Horror has not only an album title but a none-more horror themed album cover imagery that could be from Morbid Visions/Beneath The… Continue Reading →

Diabolic Night – Beyond the Realm (High Roller Records)

Right off the bat, let me tell you that reading the accompanying blurb and discovering that “Diabolic Night” is essentially a one-man band had me face-palming. While there are some notable exceptions, in my experience, most of the worst, most… Continue Reading →

30,000 Monkies – Are Forever (Consouling Sounds)

These Belgian noiseniks are back with their first long player since 2016’s “I Ate Myself To Grow Twice As Big”. 30,000 Monkeys still seem very intent on crushing skulls and making ears bleed with their own very peculiar brand of… Continue Reading →

Mass Worship – S/T (Century Media)

It’s that time of the year when the weather starts to get more menacing and all the ‘kvlt’ things which lurk in the darkness begin to rise up and the folks who handle press and distribution across the music world… Continue Reading →

Rudra – Invoking the Gods (Trishul Records)

This is an interesting release from Singaporean Vedic metal band Rudra. The first six tracks are tributes to their influences in the metal world, so there are numbers from Sepultura, Slayer, Black Sabbath, Obituary, Death, and Bathory. The final five… Continue Reading →

Petbrick I (Rocket Recordings)

My expectation of this album by the duo called Petbrick was of something electronic and industrial. But there’s talk too of punk attitudes and experimentation, so maybe my expectation was off the mark. The duo in question are Wayne Adams… Continue Reading →

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 →
