Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Those who can make any money, let alone a living out of reviewing are few and far between. The majority of writers are folks like your humble scribe who happen to be fans and want to spread the word of what is good, and maybe.. Read More
The Lurking Fear – Out Of The Voiceless Grave (Century Media)

The Lurking Fear – Out Of The Voiceless Grave (Century Media)

Ah another band carrying the flag for all things Howard Phillip Lovecraft but this is no normal group even if you have never heard of them before but a bunch of Swedish veterans from the death metal scene. Call them a super-group if you will.. Read More
Reverorum ib Malacht - Ter Agios Numini (The Ajna Offensive)

Reverorum ib Malacht – Ter Agios Numini (The Ajna Offensive)

This band from Sweden started out in 2005 with the intriguingly titled demo “What do You Think of the Old God, We Call Him Judas?”, since then a further two demos and three albums of black ambience including this one have been added. The album.. Read More
Paganizer – Land Of Weeping Souls (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Paganizer – Land Of Weeping Souls (Transcending Obscurity Records)

You can be as fancy and as hi-tech as you like but after fannying around with the latest fads, in the end you’ll go back to what you know. In a past life the Remmington 870 was my shotgun of choice. Heavy, made of what.. Read More
Entrench - Through the Walls of Flesh (I Hate)

Entrench – Through the Walls of Flesh (I Hate)

Swedish raw thrashers Entrench come back after three years away with this tasty little thrasher. If you are a fan of the faster (Razor) and rawer (early Slayer, Kreator and Sodom) side of the sub-genre then you will embrace this release wholly. There’s a couple.. Read More
Hermóðr – Hädanfärd (Wolfspell)

Hermóðr – Hädanfärd (Wolfspell)

Swedish musician Rafn has been involved in no shortage of bands through his musical journey, from Abysmal Silence through Endless Woods and even with a bit of Sodomizing Christ going down. Hermóðr along with Mist and Deadlife seem to be his current on-going musical outlets.. Read More
Ye Banished Privateers - First Night Back In Port (Napalm)

Ye Banished Privateers – First Night Back In Port (Napalm)

Just to be different from every other review of this album, I am going to resist the demanding urge to turn all pirate in the first few lines. There’ll be no timbers shivered, any pieces will not be of eight, Mainsails will remain far from.. Read More
Vintersorg - Till fjälls, del II (Napalm Records)

Vintersorg – Till fjälls, del II (Napalm Records)

Vintersorg seems incapable of standing still. I’m not saying he’s got ADHD or Restless Leg Syndrome or something, I mean his band is always looking to explore new avenues and ideas. The Borknagar vocalist has always used his eponymously titled studio project to explore every.. Read More
Entrails - World Inferno (Metal Blade)

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 they’ve essentially ended up with.. Read More
Desultory – Through Aching Aeons (Pulverised Records)

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 that sat outside the normal.. Read More
Gods Forsaken - In a Pitch Black Grave (SoulSeller Records)

Gods Forsaken – In a Pitch Black Grave (SoulSeller Records)

Old School Swedish Death Metal. If you’re short on time, you could just read those first five words and have a pretty accurate view of what this album is like. That guitar sound is now so ubiquitous that it usually takes no more than a.. Read More
Maim – Ornaments Of Severity (Soulseller Records)

Maim – Ornaments Of Severity (Soulseller Records)

I remember the first Maim album in 2009, mostly because I thought it had a brilliant title “From The Womb To The Tomb”. The music was bang on too. A mixture of early Dismember and Entrails with a hefty dollop of grease on top. Proper.. Read More
