Paganizer – The Tower Of The Morbid (Transcending Obscurity)

I find it kind of funny that whilst Metal as a whole is the beating heart of the underground it is massively popular, I mean look at Wacken, Hellfest and to a lesser extent Download, these are hugely successful gatherings…. Continue Reading →

One Hour Hell – Voidwalker (ViciSolum)

SweDeath is a fairly common approach to Death Metal these days. Highly influential, instantly recognizable and easy to blend in with other styles and approaches, this core style of Death Metal is one we are all widely familiar with, and… Continue Reading →

Entombed A.D. – Bowels Of Earth (Century Media)

Naturally bands have splits, crucial members leave and new pastures follow yet sometimes things become irreparable. Yet in recent times often the splits have led to renamed acts under a similar moniker. I tend to try and view this as… Continue Reading →

Gods Forsaken – Smells Of Death (Soulseller Records)

A couple of years back I slotted Gods Forsaken’s debut album “In A Pitch Black Grave” into my end of year top 20. It was a classic claw-hammer to the skull of a Swedish death metal album. Pure, undiluted and… Continue Reading →

Feral – Flesh For Funerals Eternal (Transcending Obscurity)

Swedish Death Metal has a very distinct sound about it popularized in the 90’s by bands such as Entombed, Dismember and Carnage to name but a few. This riff heavy, muddy, filth covered style has inspired bands the world over… Continue Reading →

Bæst – Danse Macabre (Century Media Records)

About 18 months this Danish band was not even on the fringes of my death radar but once my sister said she was coming over from Australia and we planned to go Copenhell in 2017 where they were playing early… Continue Reading →

Wombbath – The Great Desolation (Soulseller Records)

If you didn’t know, and as the band is often criminally overlooked there’s a good chance you didn’t, Wombbath have been producing some of the gnarliest Swedish death metal since 1992 however, this here album is only the band’s third… Continue Reading →

Ripped To Shreds – Mai-Zang (Necrolatory)

Ripped To Shreds is the one-man death metal project of Andrew Lee, based out of the legendary Bay Area of California. Influenced heavily by SweDeath style metal, grindcore and thrash, “埋葬”(pronounced Mai-Zang, translated to Burial in English) is a hard… Continue Reading →

Subservience – Forest Of The Impaled (Black Bow Records)

It appears that the best kept death metal secret on the south coast of the UK is called Subservience and has three EPs out plus a split and having listened to the EPs on the band’s bandcamp page it is… Continue Reading →

Blood Of Seklusion – Servants Of Chaos (FDA Records)

I wasn’t familiar with Blood of Seklusion prior to receiving this and having read the opening promo blurb that, rather confusingly stated “Swedish death metal from Italy” I started to frown and get a bit grumpy. Now Italy is famous… Continue Reading →

Entrails – World Inferno (Metal Blade)

Entrails. It’s perhaps fitting that when I look at my CD rack, they’re the first band to come after “Entombed” in the current A-Z configuration. If you’ve followed their progress since 2010, you couldn’t have failed to have noticed that… Continue Reading →

Desultory – Through Aching Aeons (Pulverised Records)

I had a passing affiliation for this Swedish act with the bands “Into Eternity” album in 1993 but the follow up and third albums escaped me for some reason, especially as the debut was a fine display of death metal… Continue Reading →
