Jesus Chrüsler Supercar – Lücifer (Dr. Music Records)

A few years back, Swedish Death ‘n’ Rollers Jesus Chrüsler Supercar unleashed ‘35 Supersonic’. A gnarly, fuzzed-up adrenaline shot of good time, doomy, rock and roll. You’ll be pleased to know that their infernal follow up album ‘Lücifer’ continues this… Continue Reading →

This Gift Is A Curse – A Throne of Ash (Season of Mist)

There’s something rather nasty about this latest offering from Stockholm based blackened sludge metallers This Gift Is A Curse, it’s ominous, filled with dread at every turn, but it’s all the better for it.  A Throne of Ash, their third… Continue Reading →

Firespawn – Abomination (Century Media Records)

There is a train of thought that when well established band members invest their time, skill and energy into a new project,that said ability can be spread too far, even when you have such elite members that comprise this Swedish… Continue Reading →

Majestica – Above The Sky (Nuclear Blast)

A Symphonic Power Metal band…from Sweden…on Nuclear Blast…called Majestica? And right now the readership has split straight into two camps – the first who read that and went “Oh bloody hell, I know exactly what THAT will be like” and… Continue Reading →

Turbocharged – Above Lords, Below Earth (GFY Productions)

Sweden’s Turbocharged have been on the periphery of my extreme metal radar for a number of years but I have never really got round to delving into their back catalogue fully so I opted to take this album on for… Continue Reading →

Arckanum – Första Trulen (Folter Records)

As I am sure you are aware, Arckanum is dead! Sole muse and innovator behind the project Shamaatae laid it to rest with swansong Den förstfödde back in 2017 deciding he wanted to spend time on spiritual matters and his… Continue Reading →

Mystik – Mystik (I Hate)

I have been looking forward to this album for a while. The band formed in Sweden 3 years ago and they delve into the US heavy/speed metal category. Not only does the artwork give a great impression of the album,… Continue Reading →

Martyrdöd – Hexhammaren (Century Media)

In a genre with a blueprint as regimented as crust punk/d-beat’s, it’s difficult to see how after 18 years a band with these foundations could continue to keep things fresh, however, here are Martyrdöd doing just that. Returning from the… Continue Reading →

Windthrow – Treacherous Beckonings (S/R)

Well I have to say first off that when someone sends a vinyl copy of their debut as a review copy you do kinda sit up and notice, so thanks for that. Good cover too, and well worth the LP… Continue Reading →

Entombed – Live Clandestine (Threeman Records)

Some reviews are easier than others, but when you are asked to retrospectively trawl back through the annals of time to offer your thoughts on a live version of what many would consider to be a stone cold classic, genre… Continue Reading →

Murg –Strävan (Nordvis)

If you somehow managed to miss Murg’s frost-bitten and pretty fucking stunning debut, perhaps holed up in your wintery forest domain wearing corpse paint and living only on food you caught and strangled with your bare hands, I can only… Continue Reading →

Novarupta – Disillusioned Fire (Suicide Records)

An interesting fact that I picked up while checking out the background to this album was that Novarupta’s instigator contributed to Terra Tenebrosa’s excellent album “The Reverses”. As some people decide to take up running or learn a language for… Continue Reading →
