Venereal Baptism – Repugnant Coronation Of The Beast (Osmose)

Fancy a syphilitic shower at gonorrhoea gulch courtesy of Venereal Baptism? They deserve a clap for their name but that’s something this Texan duo already have. STD’s are no laughing matter and nor are these purveyors of filth actually, they… Continue Reading →

Haunter – Sacramental Death Qualia (I, Voidhanger)

This is the second album from Texans Haunter, who have been going for 6 years. Identified points of reference for this band are Gorguts and Immolation, but that’s just the death metal element. The album unleashes without delay a ball… Continue Reading →

Cherubs – Immaculada High (Relapse Records)

Relapse always got it goin’ awn!  I am not going to pretend I have heard of Cherubs who began in 1991, collapsed in 94 and rose again in 2014.  Sometimes, discovering that you have missed out can be a good thing. This… Continue Reading →

Imprecation – Damnatio Ad Bestias (Dark Descent)

One thing that I really love about being completely obsessed with music is discovering all of the cult bands and releases. It fills you with a strange sense of achievement as if you’ve attained some sort of prowess in your… Continue Reading →

Texas Metal Outlaws – S/T (Heaven & Hell)

This is a Texan super group, I first I thought this was the Texas Metal Legions destined to play Keep It True next year, but it’s not, although some of the same musicians feature. Primarily, it’s a project put together… Continue Reading →

Kill Everything – Scorched Earth (Comatose)

Every once in a while an artist comes along to totally change your perception on music. Admittedly this euphoric bliss occurs less and less as we edge closer to our unavoidable demise but nevertheless it always has an enlightening power… Continue Reading →

Venomous Maximus – No Warning (Shadow Kingdom)

Texans aren’t generally known for doing things on a small scale so when it comes to generosity with classic sounding riffs we should be able to expect something big from the Lone Star state. Venomous Maximus bring in said generosity… Continue Reading →

Wolvenguard – Elemental Reclamation (S/R)

Here’s a tempting treat for anyone whose tastes linger at the blackened end of the melodic death metal spectrum – Amon Amarth, Kataklysm, Immortal. Yes, you say, but I’ve listened to all that Viking death metal stuff a thousand times,… Continue Reading →

Venereal Baptism – Deviant Castigation Liturgy (Osmose)

Maybe it’s because I’m an out of touch grumpy forty-five year old but I was prepared to be utterly underwhelmed by this, the debut release from Texans Venereal Baptism. Firstly…. They’re called “Venereal Baptism” and secondly they have a band… Continue Reading →

Fogg – High Testament (Tee Pee Records)

Greetings fellow retronauts, old gits, and voyagers on the good ship olden times. Have you played your old Roy Harper 8 tracks so often that they have finally worn out? Have your Steve Hillage LPs spun so often on the… Continue Reading →

Cambion – Unfold Chaos Supreme (S/R)

All evidence indicates that El Paso’s Cambion are a new creation in the death metal world. With no entry on Metal Archives and a minimalist Facebook account, it’s really quite hard to give much of a background. Probably the most… Continue Reading →
