Demonik – Demon & Ashes Of The Earth (S/R)

Demonik are a band who I have covered previously for this site. The Spanish Thrashers released their 3rd studio album “Rise From Chaos” in 2018 and whilst there were some good musical elements on it, the album was just another… Continue Reading →

Toundra – Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari (Inside Out/Superball)

The strange title of this album beat me at first and still does, but I do now know that it refers to a German silent horror film of the same name from 1920. A far cry from the days when… Continue Reading →

Nukore – One Minute Silence (Blood Fire Death)

“Do you miss the rap metal of the early 90’s,” posits the question of the PR blurb and I look around wondering if someone is asking me a trick question? The answer is of course a big resounding “FUCK NO”… Continue Reading →

Abisme – As Fear Falls In (S/R)

As a debut release this Spanish act has set themselves a rather large bar to surmount for their sophomore such is the quality here. The eerie despondent acoustic opening to “Amoral Era” breathes levels of menace into the track before… Continue Reading →

Iron Curtain – Danger Zone (Dying Victims)

This is Spanish band Iron Curtain’s fourth album, and based on the progression from Speed and NWoBHM influence through to the metal might of Priest on their last offering ‘Guilty as Charged’, I have high hopes for this. As soon… Continue Reading →

Undead – Existential Horror (Godz Ov War)

There’s no shortage of Undead bands in the metal graveyard, its an obvious name and there’s no less than 14 bunches of ghouls using the moniker according to Metal Archives. This is an international group whose members are largely made… Continue Reading →

Sun Of The Dying – The Earth Is Silent (Art Of Propaganda)

Currently the earth is not silent, far from it, it is a tumultuous place seething with monstrous acts as nature battles with humanity for dominance, and if Sun Of The Dying had anything to do with it then this would… Continue Reading →

Mystagos – Azoth (Black Seed Productions)

At the helm of this Spanish black metal project is Heolstor who has his creative fingers in other projects. Prior to becoming Mystagos this project was called Chains Ov Beleth for about a decade before changing name. Black metal itself… Continue Reading →

Qayin Regis – Doctrine (Blackseed Productions)

Well one thing is assured, Qayin Regis certainly have a doctrine and here be it. “QAYIN REGIS’ Black Metal is orthodox and consciously based in the spiritual gnostic syncretization of the Spanish black magic, the cult of Death and the… Continue Reading →

Mad-Era – ElectricMegaBlack (S/R)

Spanish trio Mad-Era hail from Torrelodones, Madrid and they seem to be causing a bit of a stir with their latest release ‘ElectricMegaBlack’. With praise and intrigue coming in from several places, the groove orientated heavy metal trio seem to… Continue Reading →

Barbarian Swords – Totemic Anal Turbofucker (Third-I Rex)

In contrast to the sprawling doom death epics that appeared on the split earlier this year, reviewed by fellow scribe Andrew Doherty (you can read about it here), whose description of slithering deathliness perfectly described those two songs, but here… Continue Reading →

Oniricous – La Maladicion (Black Seed Productions)

Oniricous may not be on everyone’s radars as these Spaniards only have two previous full length albums, ‘Ritos Disbolicos’ (2013) and ‘La Caverna Del Fuego’ (2016), but this new EP may help to propel them into the hearts of many… Continue Reading →
