Vulture – Ghastly Waves & Battered Graves (Metal Blade)

In an era when metal has taken on so many forms it’s somehow comforting to think back to thrash metal as one of the genre’s purest. Who can argue with Fistful of Metal, Feel The Fire and Kill ‘Em All?… Continue Reading →

Cruella – Metal Revenge (S/R)

This US band formed in 1986, some of you may remember the name, they came at a time when power/speed metal was a real force and in ’89 they released ‘Vengeance is Mine’, nowadays an obscure underground release). Over the… Continue Reading →

Leathurbitch – Into the Night (High Roller)

This American band combines speed metal with glam/sleaze metal from the 80’s. Many may never have heard of bands of times past doing a similar thing, this is apparently done within the confines of the modern metal scene (are there… Continue Reading →

Indian Nightmare – By Ancient Force (High Roller Records)

This international act comprises a couple of guys from Italy, and one from each of Turkey, Indonesia and Mexico and the sonic devastation they purvey on their sophomore equates to being mauled by a pack of wolves. The band blends… Continue Reading →

Mystik – Mystik (I Hate)

I have been looking forward to this album for a while. The band formed in Sweden 3 years ago and they delve into the US heavy/speed metal category. Not only does the artwork give a great impression of the album,… Continue Reading →

Bewitcher – Under the Witching Cross (Shadow Kingdom)

Chevalier – Destiny Calls (Gates Of Hell)

Well I haven’t been as initially non-plussed by a band as Finland’s Chevalier since the first time I heard Cirith Ungol. I mean after the intro of ‘Destiny Calls’, ‘The Immurement’ drops in like the band were up-ended out of… 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 →

Midnight, Hellripper, Aggressive Perfector & Heavy Sentence – London Dome 12/4/19

Time for a night of lust, filth, speed and sleaze and it is finally here, the return of Midnight, back in the UK for the second time and the first since Live Evil Festival back in 2012. They have tried… Continue Reading →

Seax – Fallout Rituals (Shadow Kingdom)

This is speed metal from Boston, Seax are a band I have heralded from the beginning, this is their latest and fourth release to date. Having dabbled into pure speed metal on their last outing, they are definitely full on,… Continue Reading →

Black Magic – Wizard’s Spell (Dark Essence)

Maybe it’s just me (and invariably when I say that, it has often been known to be), but I feel really edgy and apprehensive when a record label re-issues a release calling it “Legendary” and as with this one, “One… Continue Reading →
