MRome – Leech Ghetto (S/R)

As I discovered on covering last unwieldly entitled album ‘Noetic Collision on the Roof of Hell’ Polish band MRome don’t exactly play by the rules. Truly independent they state that they “are not interested in promoting band members by lame… Continue Reading →

Suicidal Tendencies – Still Cyco Punk After All These Years (The Orchard/Suicidal Records)

Having been a fan for such a long time, I’ve been around for plenty of line-up changes and changes in musical direction. But that said, the underlying ethos in ST has remained unwavering and it’s all about venting and saying… Continue Reading →

Dr. Living Dead! – Cosmic Conqueror (Century Media)

I was going to start this review off with the statement that these guys are 30 years late to the party, but realised that was most likely only when they were born. Additionally they wouldn’t have been as heavily influenced… Continue Reading →

Leng Tch’e – Razorgrind (Season of Mist)

Seven years is not an eternity when it comes to recording hiatus. However in the extreme metal world where bands blast out releases like pustules bursting on a leprous back, the time since Leng Tch’e released Hypomaniac has certainly stretched… Continue Reading →

Bloodclot – Up In Arms (Metal Blade)

Super-group. An epithet banded about since the seventies and usually used for a bunch of rich hippies who got stoned and decided to make some extra cash by rehashing riffs from their parent bands. Hardcore. A genre that seems to… Continue Reading →

Havok – Conformicide (Century Media)

NO KARATE IN THE PIT! You heard!  Denver based Thrashers Havok are still as vehemently old school in their approach to music and there are no toxic beer mugs or tough guy macho stylings in sight. I interviewed founding vocalist/guitarist… Continue Reading →

Suicidal Tendencies – World Gone Mad (Suicidal Records)

Mike Muir and Dean Pleasants are back for Suicidal’s eleventh album but the first for new recruits Ra Díaz, Jeff Pogan and Dave Lombardo. In many ways you know what you’re going to get with an ST album. There’s gonna… Continue Reading →

Evil Invaders – In For The Kill (Napalm)

Belgian thrash and speed metal four piece Evil Invaders are an in your face bunch. Having been blown away by their debut full length “Pulses Of Pleasure” last year, a stunning display of blistering paced riffery and flashy leads which… Continue Reading →

Rock Im Revier 2016 (Westfenhalle, Dortmund, 26-28/5/26 )

Rock Im Revier is a relative newcomer to the European festival scene which some people say is overcrowded and at times, I do have to agree with them. You only have to look at how many festivals have folded recently… Continue Reading →

Broken Teeth HC – At Peace Amongst Chaos (Nuclear Blast)

This Manchester crew has been fairly busy over the last few years releasing a slew of seven inchers to gain a name for themselves locally mainly but also nationally and beyond our shores due to touring escapades I suspect. Their… Continue Reading →

The Erkonauts – I Did Something Bad (Kaotoxin)

“You know what the fellow said – in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had… Continue Reading →

Metal Allegiance – S/T (Nuclear Blast)

I’m never really too sure whether assembling a bunch of musicians and getting them to play some songs together is going to actually produce something worth listening to. Sometimes it works, other times not so much. Thankfully this is an… Continue Reading →
