Cut Up – Wherever They May Rot (Metal Blade Records)

Death fucking metal! We love it right? We love proper death metal don’t we? Not bullshit slammy pig squealing comedy bollocks but true death metal, and if the it comes from Sweden then the chances are it’s gonna be the absolute nuts! I don’t wanna.. Read More
Creeping Flesh – Scorched (S/R)

Creeping Flesh – Scorched (S/R)

After their first two EP’s Unravelled by War and Rising Terror, 2016 saw the return of Swedish Death Metallers Creeping Flesh with their latest demo Scorched. This delightful little demo consists of three tracks packed to the brim with speed, energy and tasty old school.. Read More
Evocation – The Shadow Archetype (Metal Blade)

Evocation – The Shadow Archetype (Metal Blade)

Always good to hear a new record from one of the hidden gems of the Swedish death metal scene. Always the underdog and criminally overlooked in the scene, Evocation have been in existence for what must be 25 years now but this is only their.. Read More
Wormwood – Ghostlands: Wounds From A Bleeding Earth (Non Serviam)

Wormwood – Ghostlands: Wounds From A Bleeding Earth (Non Serviam)

Revelations gets all apocalyptic with Wormwood in the bible, it’s a catastrophic star heralding plagues. It may also remind you of similar calamitous times spent in the aftermath of absinthe binges and the next morning feeling like you have indeed felt the touch of death... Read More
Hetroertzen – Uprising of the Fallen (Listenable Records)

Hetroertzen – Uprising of the Fallen (Listenable Records)

Fifteen years in and the Swedish-via-Chile outfit Hetroertzen show no signs of reigning back on their committed, transcendental approach to blasphemic black metal. ‘Uprising of the Fallen’, their sixth full-length (and first for Listenable) continues in the tradition of previous works, unveiling grandiose compositions and..

Henry Kane – Den Forstorda Manniskans Rika (Transcending Obscurity)

Henry Kane – Den Forstorda Manniskans Rika (Transcending Obscurity)

I feel like a bit ignorant here, but I have no idea who Henry Kane is. I assume it’s a reference to something (maybe the graphic novel?), but it’s not one I’m au fait with. If any reader has an idea, please let me know.. Read More
Noêta – Beyond Life and Death (Prophecy)

Noêta – Beyond Life and Death (Prophecy)

Noêta is apparently a Greek term that describes the concept of universal thoughts or ideas without someone thinking them. Obscure as this may sound, I get that. This album from the Swedish duo shares transcendental obscurity. Or put another way, “Beyond Life and Death” is.. Read More
Bloodbound - War Of Dragons (AFM)

Bloodbound – War Of Dragons (AFM)

I’m familiar with Bloodbound already, but this time the album title piqued my interest even further. Regular readers will know I’m partial to a bit of dragon imagery within the realms of Power Metal. Yes, dragons can be a bit of a bind at a.. Read More
Screamer - Hell Machine (High Roller)

Screamer – Hell Machine (High Roller)

This is Swedish Screamer’s third full album, their last effort ‘Phoenix’ was pretty damn fine, so this one has a fair bit to stand up against. Thankfully, it’s all positive. Screamer continue in their quest mixing classic metal and including some NWOBHM era riffs here.. Read More
Ash And Coal – Legacy (ViciSolum Productions)

Ash And Coal – Legacy (ViciSolum Productions)

It was way back in 2013 when we last heard from dark rock band Ash And Coal who had kindly sent in their EP ‘Agnostica’ to us on vinyl. At the time I was pretty impressed with their moribund but infectious sound which took me.. Read More
Nicole Sabouné – Miman (Century Media)

Nicole Sabouné – Miman (Century Media)

Having the album of a contestant from The Voice is something that every self-respecting music journalist prays will never happen – however, an exception can be made for the Swedish talent that is Nicole Sabouné. The singer/songwriter made it to the semi-finals of Sweden’s The.. Read More
