High On Fire -  Electric Messiah (eOne)

High On Fire – Electric Messiah (eOne)

To release one monster of an album in 2018 is no mean feat.  To do so with the wait of expectation from a rabid fanbase weighing like a concrete albatross is truly magnificent. For Matt Pike to follow up Sleeps’ “The Sciences” with a new High.. Read More
Waxen - Terror Decree (Moribund)

Waxen – Terror Decree (Moribund)

Toby Knapp continues his lone journey to thrash the charred soul of black metal into dust. “Terror Decree” marks the fourth full length outing under the Waxen moniker and finds him dexterously laying waste to all in his path. This album also serves up four.. Read More
Suicidal Tendencies - Still Cyco Punk After All These Years (The Orchard/Suicidal Records)

Suicidal Tendencies – Still Cyco Punk After All These Years (The Orchard/Suicidal Records)

Having been a fan for such a long time, I’ve been around for plenty of line-up changes and changes in musical direction. But that said, the underlying ethos in ST has remained unwavering and it’s all about venting and saying your piece. And at times.. Read More
Arrogant Destruktor - Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Arrogant Destruktor – Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Here’s a nice coincidence; I bought the limited cassette run version of this on spec a while back just because I liked the name, and it’s now getting a CD release. I still know very little about the band other than they appear to be.. Read More
Deathstorm - Reaping What is Left (High Roller)

Deathstorm – Reaping What is Left (High Roller)

Last time the Austrian Thrash machine that is Deathstorm struck, they were a palette cleanser of sorts, breaking up my retro-rock stoner/doom workload and reminding me that summer usually brings a whole horde of thrash riffs with it. This time, Deathstorm merely continue the heavy.. Read More
Black Cyclone - Death Is King (Gates of Hell Records)

Black Cyclone – Death Is King (Gates of Hell Records)

There was a time in the history of heavy metal, where it was hard to know just where exactly NWOBHM ended, and thrash begun. In fact, arguably before the term “thrash” metal was even in very regular parlance, the “speed metal” term was used to.. Read More
Blood Tsunami - Grave Condition (Soulseller)

Blood Tsunami – Grave Condition (Soulseller)

Blood Tsunami’s members have been spread across various bands over the past few years. The Norwegian thrash outfit are now back in business and bring “Grave Condition” to the metal table as their latest offering five years after their last album. They’re certainly not strangers.. Read More
Hortus Animae – Piove Sangue Live In Banska Bystriae (Aesthetic Death)

Hortus Animae – Piove Sangue Live In Banska Bystriae (Aesthetic Death)

I personally discovered Hortus Animae (The Garden Of The Soul) via last album ‘Secular Music in 2014 although the Italian band had been going since 1997. It came from an unlikely source at least for a ‘progressive black metal’ band via Flicknife Records who are.. Read More
Necrodeath – The Age Of Dead Christ (Scarlet / Terror From Hell)

Necrodeath – The Age Of Dead Christ (Scarlet / Terror From Hell)

Although Necrodeath have been going since 1985 it was after they took a ten year break that I originally discovered them through their comeback album Mater Of All Evil. It was hardly surprising our paths would cross due to the fact that vocalist Flegias was.. Read More
Exekution -The Worst Is Yet to Come (Thanatology Productions)

Exekution -The Worst Is Yet to Come (Thanatology Productions)

Catalonia is currently a hotbed of social and political turmoil and the way things are looking, it doesn’t seem like it will calm down any time soon. With cultural identity, a sense of independence and pride all feeling wounded, the highly charged emotions at play.. Read More
The Crown - Cobra Speed Venom (Metal Blade)

The Crown – Cobra Speed Venom (Metal Blade)

They’ve been going for twenty seven years now? How can this be true? Yet, somehow, and improbably, The Crown are back again. Their travails and tribulations have been well covered, but simply put, they’ve seen their band forced into changing their name from “Crown of.. Read More
Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Recently I have found myself enamored by Bestial Black Metal or War Metal if you like. Raw untamed, relentless Black Metal with a heavy Death Metal influence taking inspiration from the beginnings of Extreme Metal with an excessive worship towards the barbaric tones of Hellhammer,.. Read More
