Nocturnal Breed – We Only Came For The Violence (Folter)

I would struggle to think of a new genre of Metal that has had as much of an impact as Black Metal has had. Sure you have Nu-Metal, Deathcore, Metalcore and even Groove Metal but all of these genres have… Continue Reading →

Destruction – Born To Perish (Nuclear Blast)

Some bands are a bastard to write about; it is easy to wax lyrical about song structures and compositional ability, virtuoso performances or atmospheric impact. It can be difficult to write about bands that have a tried and tested formula… Continue Reading →

Warfist – Grunberger (Godz Ov War Productions)

Be warned….. I’m gonna gush like a broken fridge all over this one. Let’s get it out of the way right now….. I can’t remember the last time I played an album so fun and so unashamedly METAL! as this… Continue Reading →

Devouror – Slay For Satan (Metal Zone)

New year, new EP, new band. Fresh start and all that. Well, I say fresh but this fetid blast of ‘bestial deathcult warfare’ is not exactly the sweet smelling air of some Norwegian forest. Nah, this is a short three… Continue Reading →

JT Ripper – Gathering of the Insane (I Hate)

Well, this worked out a little different than I thought it might. Looking at the initial promo blurb, which talked about a German power trio taking an old school approach to heavy metal, I thought I’d be listening to something… Continue Reading →

Exodus, Sodom, Death Angel – London Electric Ballroom 6/12/18

I’m kinda annoyed that I missed Suicidal Angels, as I was looking forward to getting to see them. Granted I only have ‘Bloodbath’, so their set would have been mostly unfamiliar material, but from the roar of approval they got… Continue Reading →

Nefasturris – Towers of Sin (S/R)

This is a recording project, considered a “life’s work” of Full Thrash Assault manager Dave Ingram Jr and features guest appearances from many a named artist in the business. Rawness is the key to the majority of the release, harbouring… Continue Reading →

Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records)

Teutonic threesome Panzer Squad began in 2012 and “Ruins” is their second full length release, following 2016’s “Coming to your Town”.  Heavy Metal’s preoccupation with the machines of War is understandable. Death contraptions of steel and iron that destroy and terrorize… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Damnation Festival – Leeds University Union 4/11/17

As I approached the University Union in Leeds, on a cold November morning, I could feel the air of anticipation growing, for I was about to embark on the annual bonfire weekend extravaganza that is the Damnation Festival. There were… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Cripper – Follow Me: Kill! (Metal Blade)

Technical Teutonic Thrashers Cripper are back again with the follow up to their splendid Metal Blade debut effort, “Hyëna”. ‘Follow. Me: Kill!’ follows in the same footsteps as its predecessor, promising plenty of titanic riffs, crushing grooves and unparalleled ferocity…. Continue Reading →
