Recueil Morbide – Morbid Collection (Great Dane)

France. Not the first place to that leaps to mind when you think of brutal music. Not sure why though….. The French gave us some amazingly brutal movies like ‘Inside’, ‘Frontier(s)’, ‘Vivide’ & of course ‘Martyrs’….. but musically all that… Continue Reading →

Xibalba – Tierra Y Libertad (Southern Lord)

Xibalba are not a band I’d heard of before receiving this, their third album, for review. Apparently splicing hardcore with death metal, ‘Tierra Y Libertad’ sees the Californians in their “most threatening form yet”. On top of assertions like this,… Continue Reading →

Decimation – Reign Of Ungodly Creation (Comatose Music)

Sometimes this reviewing lark can be a bit dull, another brutal tech death band I thought. This’ll be a load of impossible to remember blasting / pig squealing tripe I thought. A few listens later though and I realised brutal… Continue Reading →

Interview – Revel In Flesh

Revel In Flesh are no strangers to Ave Noctum and most recently they have been a part of three split 7 inch records issued earlier this year. When it comes to punishing old school death metal, then Germany’s Revel In… Continue Reading →

Re-Armed – Rottendam (Eternal Sound Records)

Who said that heavy metal has to be downtrodden and miserable? Well, no-one did, but these guys from Finland with the Swedish sound manage to bring cheeriness to a totally dark and extreme experience. From the vocalist’s “Welcome to Rottendam”… Continue Reading →

Banisher – Scarcity (Unquiet Records)

Banisher are a technical death metal band hailing from Rzeszow in Poland. They’ve been kicking around since 2005 but only released their debut album, ‘Slaughterhouse’, in 2010. This is a very dynamic, relentless album, faster & more intense than their… Continue Reading →

Rogash – Supremacy Undone (War Anthem)

No, this isn’t an abbreviated form of famous, aromatic lamb curry but rather a new death metal band from Germany. With a press release mentioning influences such as Spawn Of Possession, Suffocation and Dismember (all with a modern twist) I… Continue Reading →

Inbreeding Rednecks – Abnormal Life Portrayed (Mighty Music)

Inbreeding Rednecks sound as though they ought to come from Arkansas, but in fact they’re a group of experienced musicians from Denmark with a passion for old school death metal. This, then, is what we get in copious quantities. Grim… Continue Reading →

Ferocity – The Sovereign (Deepsend)

Denmark has had its fair share of death metal bands over the years, but none of which have really risen to the heights of their Swedish (or even Norwegian, in my opinion) brethren. OK, Invocator were great, as were Iniquity… Continue Reading →

Dehuman Reign – Destructive Intent (FDA Rekotz)

German death metal always holds a special place for me just like German speed metal, it’s pretty unique in its tone and delivery as this. Having formed in 2011 FDA must have thought this band has something others do not… Continue Reading →

Facebreaker – Dedicated to the Flesh (Cyclone Empire)

Out of all the sub-genres of metal, there is one which I will always return to over all others. That, my friends, is the horrible slime-coated buzzsaw attack of the ‘Stockholm sound’. I really am a sucker for it. The… Continue Reading →

Necrotic Disgorgement – Documentaries of Dementia (Comatose Music)

Arghhh, my eyes! Just look at that awful cover art. A grim scene, made even more horrible due to the fact it’s so badly digitally rendered that it just looks unbelievably bad. Had it not have been for the portrayal… Continue Reading →
