Skulldriver – L.D.C. (Elitbolaget)

Firstly, what a fucking great name for a metal band…Skulldriver….fantastic stuff, up there with Parasitic Ejaculation, Anal Cunt and Cannibal Corpse in self determinism. Band names that evoke and accurately paint of picture as to what you’re likely to experience… Continue Reading →

Voice of Ruin – Purge and Purify (Tenacity Music)

Start off by screaming “Disgust” and go belting off with some punchy thrash-groove metal, and you’ve got an idea of this. It’s got all the growly bits and aggression but thanks to the melody and fluidity it’s quite jolly actually…. Continue Reading →

GraVil – No More Forgiveness (S/R)

I have vague recollections of this lot’s early demos passing through these parts for coverage on an earlier website around 2008-9. Even if not from the music the artwork and name certainly rang a bell but what was said and… Continue Reading →

Warfaith – Wise Man Is Dead (S/R)

This is a French thrash band, although to my mind this isn’t thrash as I would normally categorise as being so. It’s very modern, very nineties and noughties, it has aggressive “core” vocals, a few riffs here and there that… Continue Reading →

The Hate Colony – Navigate (Trondercore)

Hailing from Trondheim in Norway and proving that the area has many more styles played by the bands in the area than the obvious ones people would expect The Hate Colony describe themselves as ‘metalcoreish.’ The biog also mentions that… Continue Reading →

Soulfly – Savages (Nuclear Blast)

In 1996, Max Cavelera of Sepultura decided to part ways with the band and form his own group ‘Soulfly’ due to wanting a new musical direction with a more spiritual feel to the music. In the earlier days of Soulfly,… Continue Reading →

Cemetery Gates – Mick O’ Shea (Plexus)
