Fractal Universe – Rhizomes Of Insanity (Metal Blade)

Progressive Death Metal is a tough genre, especially the more exotic side of it. I’ve said this several times in the past few years and I will stand by that statement. It’s inherently complex nature, straddling the boundaries of several… Continue Reading →

Fallujah – Undying Light (Nuclear Blast)

Fallujah’s previous album “Dreamless” was just amazing, and I saw them put on a sterling performance at UK TechFest, so my hopes for “Undying Light” were high. Interestingly the band now talks of a “new era”. Well it might be… Continue Reading →

Obscura, Fallujah, Allegaeon & First Fragment – Manchester, Rebellion Bar 7/2/19

After the brutalising five band tornado that hit the Rebellion Bar the previous night it was the turn of a different touring package to obliterate Manchester, as this four band bill was far more technical oriented than the bludgeoning I… Continue Reading →

Electrocution – Psychonolatry (Goregorecords)

Genre flooding is nothing new, since the very dawn of recorded music and likely even prior there has been surges and waves of certain styles pummelling the eardrums of listeners like an audible tsunami. Yet the prevalence of this is… Continue Reading →

Beyond Creation – Algorythm (Season of Mist)

While there have been plenty of occasions where I’ve stumbled onto their songs while letting YouTube rabbit hole its own way around, I’ve never actually listened to an album of Beyond Creation’s in its entirety. ‘Algorythm’ is their third album… Continue Reading →

Irreversible Mechanism – Immersion (Blood Music)

Belarusian outfit Irreversible Mechanism first turned heads in 2014, snapped up by boutique label Blood Music within twelve hours of debut album “Infinite Fields” being quietly launched on Bandcamp. A quick round of PR and some cool looking physical releases… Continue Reading →

Monstrosity -The Passage Of Existence (Metal Blade)

Floridian Death Metal is probably one of the most famous scenes in the Metal world, save for perhaps the Norwegian Black Metal scene. This scene was erupting at the birth of the previous mentioned Black Metal scene however and was… Continue Reading →

Cronaxia – Collapsing The Outer Structure (Lusitanian Music)

This Portuguese death metal act has been around for some time, almost two decades according to the promo info, but in that intervening time the only actual release has been the 2008 EP ‘The Solution Above Continuity’, a proto technical… Continue Reading →

Squidhead – Cult[ist] (S/R)

Miskatonic University graduates Squidhead are a three-piece who haul from Belgium and have nothing but high praise for the “Great Old One”. Spawned from the depths of Pierre “Pish” Minet, the project was initially a solo endeavour but it has… Continue Reading →

Deconstructing Sequence – Cosmic Progression: An Agonizing Journey Through Oddities of Space (S/R)

This is extreme progressive art, a combination of extreme metal, progressive, avant-garde and post rock music. Deconstructing Sequence fell out of the ashes of the black metal band Northwail. The title is grandiose. So is the energy-charged start which soars… Continue Reading →

Scalpel – Methods To Delusion (S/R)

Surprisingly there is only one band called Scalpel that I could find on my research into this US band and let’s face it that medicine, science, technology has given metal a wealth of band names. This is their second album… Continue Reading →
