Ayat- Carry on, Carrion (Moribund)

Ayat- Carry on, Carrion (Moribund)

It is hard for me to review this album by Lebanese BM bods Ayat objectively. A lot is made online of the threat that these guys live under due to their anti religious , anti conformist stance. As far as I was concerned Lebanon is.. Read More
Worselder – Paradigms Lost (S/R)

Worselder – Paradigms Lost (S/R)

Groovers in the heart of the 90’s, well that strikes as a pretty good descriptive line to sum up this lot from the Pyrenees Mountain region of France. Just to clarify they play groove metal and it sounds very much like a lot of the.. Read More
Mystons – Destination Death (V.R. Label)

Mystons – Destination Death (V.R. Label)

Not to be confused with the things out of ‘Captain Scarlet’, this is Finnish duo Mystons, sailing into view with their fifth album ‘Destination Death’. Recorded mostly live with minimal overdubs, drummer John Myston and vocalist/guitarist Mauri Myston have crafted a doomy and fuzzy delight,.. Read More
The Erkonauts – I Did Something Bad (Kaotoxin)

The Erkonauts – I Did Something Bad (Kaotoxin)

“You know what the fellow said – in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy.. Read More

Cave of Swimmers – Reflection (SR)

Stockholm has produced a lot of great bands over the years and Sister are another act to add to the Swedish capital’s resume.  This four piece have the sort of sound that “ I used to Fuck People Like you in Prison “ records (before.. Read More
Almost Human – ø (Suisa)

Almost Human – ø (Suisa)

Not to be confused with various other ‘almost humans’ this lot are the Swiss version who simply class themselves as a metal band. Obviously there is a bit more to it than that as this nicely packaged card EP designed in silver and black has.. Read More
The Earls Of Mars – ST (Candlelight)

The Earls Of Mars – ST (Candlelight)

I have had great fun witnessing The Earls Of Mars live a few times and seeing people stagger out of the show at its conclusion with dazed looks on their faces, not knowing quite what they have heard and witnessed. Eyes take a while to.. Read More
Plough – The 10th Circle (SR)

Plough – The 10th Circle (SR)

I have to get this out of the way. Plough is an awful name for a band. Unless you are a Metal Wurzels tribute act. It conjures up memories of harvest festival at junior school which I have had therapy to dissipate! Don’t make me.. Read More
Acrania - An Uncertain Collision (SR)

Acrania – An Uncertain Collision (SR)

With this much headfuckery ahoy, I usually find it best to ditch the PR and plough on. In the case of this very idiosyncratic group from Mexico, mostly because somewhere someone mentioned death metal, and it ain’t even ball park close. Actually if this was.. Read More
