Download Festival 2017 – Donington Park 11/6/17

Sunday 11th June 2017 review only. Download is always a marmite festival for me, it either has loads on offer to draw my interest, or it is a weekend, I will happily swerve at a blink of an eye. While this year has intermittent gems.. Read More
Antichrist - Sinful Birth (I Hate)

Antichrist – Sinful Birth (I Hate)

It’s been a while since we heard from Sweden’s Antichrist, their live appearances on these shores are always fun and filled with a touch of good friendly violence for the crowd. Once again, a new logo comes with a new release, but the music is.. Read More
AlNamrood - Enkar (Shaytan Productions)

AlNamrood – Enkar (Shaytan Productions)

Metal is a strange beast. What about it touches the hearts and minds of people from every part of the world? More than many forms of music, it transcends race, beliefs and culture, yet still remains a pariah in the eyes of many. Dwelling in.. Read More
Distillator - Summoning the Malicious (Empire Records)

Distillator – Summoning the Malicious (Empire Records)

This is these Dutch thrashers second album, part of a trilogy which in this case deals with subjects concerning the past and present, which is apparently meant to raise questions about the future of our planet. From the opening track ‘Blinded By Chauvinism’ there’s clear.. Read More
Epi-Demic – Malformed Conscience (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

Epi-Demic – Malformed Conscience (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

This Canadian act has had a couple of releases out previously as my first dabble with their music was via the split they did with Solanum in 2015. Following on from that is this sophomore which is an explosion of thrash and crossover with a.. Read More
Condor - Unstoppable Power (High Roller)

Condor – Unstoppable Power (High Roller)

Originally a black thrash outfit from Norway, when I first saw these guys live at London Live Evil fest they looked very young indeed, maturing in age and musicianship we now have their second full length release ‘Unstoppable Power’. The vocals are more refined and.. Read More
Skulldrain - Hatred Rising (Vicisolum)

Skulldrain – Hatred Rising (Vicisolum)

Scandinavia are no strangers to metal which is off the aggressive kind. The birthplace of the melodic death metal genre, the home of the famed ‘Gothenburg Sound’ and some of the grimmest, doomiest and blackest metal out there. What we do tend to forget is.. Read More
Body Count - Bloodlust (Century Media)

Body Count – Bloodlust (Century Media)

25 years ago a landmark album in the rap and metal genres was released. Body Count’s debut album got attention, publicity and courted controversy whilst simultaneously laying down another important block in the foundations of what would later become known as Rap Metal. The band,.. Read More
Apostate Viaticum – Before The Gates Of Gomorrah (Invictus Productions)

Apostate Viaticum – Before The Gates Of Gomorrah (Invictus Productions)

Arising from the ashes of Morphosis, Dubliners (no not them) Apostate Viaticum have delivered a right tasty slab of crushing old school DM on this, their debut album. Now although this is a debut album, this band are not a bunch of young pretenders. Apostate.. Read More
Sacrificio – Guerra Eterna (Iron Bonehead Productions / Nuclear War Now! Productions)

Sacrificio – Guerra Eterna (Iron Bonehead Productions / Nuclear War Now! Productions)

This debut release, translated as ‘Eternal War’ I believe, comprises of a trio of Spaniards who wear more spikes, bullet belts, chains than most of the old thrash acts of the 80s combined and completed by headgear that looks like metallized Stormtroopers. It can come.. Read More
Witchery – In His Majesty's Infernal Service (Century Media)

Witchery – In His Majesty’s Infernal Service (Century Media)

I’m not going to lie, there are times when being a reviewer has all of the perks. I’m a huge Witchery fan, so when this clattered into my…erm…inbox, I was very excited! With the exception of the frankly mediocre “Witchkrieg”, they hadn’t put a foot.. Read More
Dead Conspiracy – S/T (Necromantic Press Records)

Dead Conspiracy – S/T (Necromantic Press Records)

Back in 2014 I was introduced to this US band’s debut “Abomination Underground” which was more or less a compilation of an EP and demo tunes and offered a slice of retro deathrash authenticity that I really enjoyed and tugged on the rancidly drooling heart.. Read More
