Cryptic Shift – Visitations From Enceladus (Blood Harvest)

In recent years I’ve grown to appreciate Technical Death Metal and the more Sci-fi infused sorts of Metal bands in general. I grew to enjoy the likes of Nucleus, Vektor and even Voivod whom I personally never saw any appeal… Continue Reading →

Abysmal Dawn – Phylogenesis (Season Of Mist)

My first experience of this US death metal band was a reissue of “From Ashes” in 2012 which was originally released in 2006. Since that time the band has released a further three albums containing their own blend of melodic… Continue Reading →

Blasphemer – The Sixth Hour (Candlelight)

Do you ever get bands that just remind you of a time? I mean I guess that’s nostalgia, but I’m talking bands that may not have had a great impact on you but were just there, lurking in the shadows…. Continue Reading →

Psychopress – The Möbius Strip (StreetVoice)

A few years ago I went on the Transformers ride at Universal Studios. What I remember is being shunted backwards, forwards and sideways, stopping and starting with explosions going on and instructions being boomed. The patterns of “The Möbius Strip”… Continue Reading →

Rings Of Saturn – Gidim (Nuclear Blast)

Do you know what I used to hate, conspiracy theories. Yet contradictory to this I’ve always had a fascination with aliens and peoples encounters with them. Nowadays I’m pretty well into the idea of conspiracies that’s not to say I… Continue Reading →

Empyreal Vault – S/T (Great Dane Records)

If you had told me a couple or three years ago that Deathcore would see a resurgence and on top of that become palatable I would have laughed in your face. Yet here we are, a new age of Deathcore… Continue Reading →

Damim – A Fine Game Of Nil (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Can I say this is the debut by Damim to make it sound like I’m here, in at the beginning? Nah, ’tis their third after a slight name shift from Dam (I assume for reasons of clashes, lineup rejig or… Continue Reading →

Nocturnus AD – Paradox (Profound Lore Records)

Back in the early 90s Nocturnus appeared with a debut album, “The Key” which in part revolutionised death metal due to its progressive strains but more importantly it adopted the use of keyboards which at the time would have been… Continue Reading →

Aenimus – Dreamcatcher (Nuclear Blast)

Bay Area metal bands conjure up a certain image. Bands like Death Angel and more recently Fallujah come to mind. What I heard of Aenimus’s second album release “Dreamcatcher” is more akin to Fallujah in its technicality and progressive edge…. Continue Reading →

Arsis – Visitant (Agonia)

I personally feel that Melodic Death Metal is under some sort of constant attack, and in part I can understand that. In a lot of ways I view the genre as a sort of bridging gap between underground and mainstream… Continue Reading →

Archspire – Relentless Mutation (Season Of Mist)

A bit of history to this Canadian band who were originally called Defenestration before changing to Archspire, they have two albums and an EP out previously all of which I have purposely not listened to prior to reviewing this third… Continue Reading →

Crator -The Ones Who Create, The Ones Who Destroy (S/R)

When two parts Origin, two parts Gorguts and one part Foaming At The Mouth combine, you end up with a death-black fusion resulting in what people will undoubtedly label as a ‘Supergroup’. In this instance, the fusion of these elements… Continue Reading →
