Warfist / Excidium - Laws Of Perversion And Filth  (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist / Excidium – Laws Of Perversion And Filth (Godz Ov War Productions)

I was lucky enough to get hold of the album “Metal To The Bone” by Polish leather & stud enthusiasts Warfist last year and it couldn’t have had a more appropriate title so when the opportunity arose to write about this new 8 track split.. Read More
Crucifyre - Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

Crucifyre – Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

The Stockholm old-schoolers return with this, their third album, following from their last release, “Black Magic Fire” back in 2014. I have “Black Magic Fire” in my own personal collection, and while I remember enjoying it, I wasn’t completely blown away with it. There have.. Read More
Machine Head - Catharsis (Nuclear Blast)

Machine Head – Catharsis (Nuclear Blast)

It was suggested to give this album a couple listens before weighing in with my review. The first song is starting for a second time as I pen this intro because after an hour and a quarter of listening to it the first time, I.. Read More
Under the Church - Supernatural Punishment (Pulverised)

Under the Church – Supernatural Punishment (Pulverised)

A second album so quickly? Well, maybe not actually quickly, given that their last record, the rather fun “Rabid Armageddon” came out in 2015. Still, I guess time does seem to work rather speedily when spent in the company of some top quality, old school.. Read More
Vaultwraith - Death Is Proof Of Satan's Power (Hell's Headbangers)

Vaultwraith – Death Is Proof Of Satan’s Power (Hell’s Headbangers)

One look at the glorious cover for this debut and you’d probably hazard a guess that this is going to be full on metal of the thrash, Merciful Fate, Satanic headbanging style and thankfully you wouldn’t be wrong. From the self titled opening, this is.. Read More
Nihil Eyes – Black Path (S/R)

Nihil Eyes – Black Path (S/R)

As a patriotic sort, I always get excited when a new UK death metal band sticks its head up. Now I appreciate that there are loads new bands from all over the world releasing albums left, right and centre but most are about as much.. Read More
Shrapnel - Raised On Decay (Candlelight Records)

Shrapnel – Raised On Decay (Candlelight Records)

UK thrashers from the land of six toes (Norwich) Shrapnel are a band who are on the rise. With a few EP’s out already and one full length which came out in 2014, along with some tours, supporting the likes of Overkill and playing Bloodstock,.. Read More
Affliktor - S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

Affliktor – S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

The gifted, guitar wizardry of Toby Knapp returns with another project, Affliktor. Having reviewed his 2016 release for Waxen, the prospect of another dose of blackened thrash metal was both intriguing and exciting. Again, Knapp is the one man band; the master of ceremonies; the.. Read More
Dead Cross - S/T  (Ipecac Recordings)

Dead Cross – S/T (Ipecac Recordings)

Super groups or artistic collaborations, call them what you will, hold a certain fascination. Riding the risky lines between potential magical genius, wanton self-indulgence or epic failure, there’s also the expectation for some unique identity rather than the safety of simply drawing from a common..

Interview - Bloody Hammers

Interview – Bloody Hammers

They’re creepy and they’re kooky mysterious and spooky. Nope let’s not go down that route even if their world is a little on the strange and horrific side. Bloody Hammers consist of Anders Magna and Devallia who pass their time making dark, gothic doom music,.. Read More
Entrench - Through the Walls of Flesh (I Hate)

Entrench – Through the Walls of Flesh (I Hate)

Swedish raw thrashers Entrench come back after three years away with this tasty little thrasher. If you are a fan of the faster (Razor) and rawer (early Slayer, Kreator and Sodom) side of the sub-genre then you will embrace this release wholly. There’s a couple.. Read More
Weaponizer - Lawless Age (20 Buck Spin)

Weaponizer – Lawless Age (20 Buck Spin)

Well, set fire to my hair and call me Rupert, I would have put money on this motley crew being Australian. I mean, everything here positively screams of being from the land down under (where women glow, and men plunder). The “war metal” vibe, the.. Read More
