Voice of Ruin – Purge and Purify (Tenacity Music)

Voice of Ruin – Purge and Purify (Tenacity Music)

Start off by screaming “Disgust” and go belting off with some punchy thrash-groove metal, and you’ve got an idea of this. It’s got all the growly bits and aggression but thanks to the melody and fluidity it’s quite jolly actually. Voice of Ruin are from.. Read More
Last Leaf Down - Bright Wide Colder (Lifeforce)

Last Leaf Down – Bright Wide Colder (Lifeforce)

This sophomore album by Swiss quartet formed 14 years ago was really awesome last week when the weather was grey and gloomy, and the music matched it completely. With the sky blue and bright, the music somehow feels crisp and clean instead. Weird how sunshine.. Read More

Bölzer – Hero (Iron Bonehead Productions)

Despite forming in 2008, Swiss black/death metal duo Bölzer have left it until 2016 to finally release their debut album ‘Hero’. Their output so far has consisted of a demo and two EPs, alongside a string of live shows – all have been met with.. Read More

Deep Sun – Race Against Time (S/R)

It’s always nice to stumble across a new band, even more so when it’s a band of the quality of Deep Sun who somehow are unsigned and really do deserve a proper record deal. What we have here is high-end Symphonic Metal made all the.. Read More
Monkey3 – Astra Symmetry (Napalm)

Monkey3 – Astra Symmetry (Napalm)

An eastern drone, and the sound of the sitar and tabla precede a whispered chant. The drum steps up in tribal fashion. Now this is different. Monkey3 in fact are from Switzerland and describe “Astra Symmetry” as our “magic carpet ride”. The harsh vocals don’t.. Read More

Dakhma – Passageways to Daena (The Concomitant Blessings of Putrescing Impurity) (Godz Of War Productions)

This debut from Swiss blackened death metallers Dakhma was released early in 2015 but has now got a physical release via a nice digipak format. Everything about this album is mammoth, the song titles, the production and the duration as the ten tracks set about.. Read More
Devon – S/T (Cold Smoke)

Devon – S/T (Cold Smoke)

I always find it a bit odd when bands are named after place names. Perhaps this quintet from Switzerland sat on the beach with a cream tea in our delightful SW county and felt inspired, maybe their name has a deeper meaning entirely. Anyway that.. Read More
Enoid - Exilé Aux Confins Des Tourments (Satanath Records)

Enoid – Exilé Aux Confins Des Tourments (Satanath Records)

Apparently French is one of the four official languages of Switzerland and the Romand language or français de Suisse is spoken largely in the Arc Lémanique region in the Western part of the country. This fact and the disc in front of me reminded me.. Read More
Buried Side – Heading to the Light (S/R)

Buried Side – Heading to the Light (S/R)

You don’t normally expect a wispy Middle Eastern section tune to be followed by brutal deathcore, but this is what happens here. In fact a lot happens here. “The Elevation” is an exhilarating mixture of growled ferocity in a Middle Eastern framework with djent and.. Read More
Mindwarp  - A Cold Black Day (Great Dane)

Mindwarp – A Cold Black Day (Great Dane)

Having not released  full length album since way back in the previous millennium, Swiss four piece Mindwarp have catapulted themselves back into the scene with their latest and second ever album A Cold Black Day, a wholesome, quintessentially heavy release. A Cold Black Day is.. Read More

Inishmore hail from Baden, Switzerland and have been kicking around for quite some time in one form or another. The band existed round the turn of the 2000’s with three releases under their belt but they disbanded in 2009. Reforming again with a new line.. Read More
