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

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)

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

Principality Of Hell – Sulfur & Bane (Osmose Productions)

Just over two years ago I reviewed this band’s debut for Ave Noctum and was positive about its style that reverted back to a raw unfettered approach even if the songs themselves weren’t that unique overall. The band is composed of three members of Thou.. Read More

A Belgian death metal band that’s been going since 1999, and I’d never heard of them? How rude! Sent to me by the fine people at French record company “Great Dane Records”, this promo came in a rather nice digipack CD edition, with the great.. Read More

Mike Muir and Dean Pleasants are back for Suicidal’s eleventh album but the first for new recruits Ra Díaz, Jeff Pogan and Dave Lombardo. In many ways you know what you’re going to get with an ST album. There’s gonna be some ranting by Cyco.. Read More
Hobbs’ Angel Of Death – Heaven Bled (Hells Headbangers)

Hobbs’ Angel Of Death – Heaven Bled (Hells Headbangers)

1988. What were you doing then? Well I guess there’s a good chance some of you weren’t even born. Me? I was seventeen years old and obsessed with thrash metal. Far too much money was spent on vinyl (all of which I still have) and.. Read More
