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)

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

Goatwhore – Vengeful Ascension (Metal Blade)

Respected New Orleans blackened thrashers, Goatwhore find themselves taking a slightly different tack on the seventh album of their career, “Vengeful Ascension”. Looking to capture their live essence on record, they utilised the services of their own soundman, Jarrett Pritchard. Loosely coupled with a concept.. Read More

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
