Disbelief – The Ground Collapses (Listenable Records)

This band is a rediscovery for me. I loved Disbelief’s 2003 album “Spreading the Rage” and witnessed a dynamic live performance at the Camden Underworld about the same time. I can still picture a collection of big hairy buggers doing… Continue Reading →

Irist – Order Of The Mind (Nuclear Blast)

It’s somewhat unusual in this day and age for a label like Nuclear Blast to take a punt on a new prospect, however, seeing as Monte Connor got it right more often than not during his years with Roadrunner, benefit… Continue Reading →

Thanatos – Violent Death Rituals (Listenable)

In the midst of recent times has there ever been a more apt soundtrack than Death Metal? The whole world appears plunged into perhaps the closest thing to a zombie apocalypse this earth is ever likely to see. Although truth… Continue Reading →

Demonik – Demon & Ashes Of The Earth (S/R)

Demonik are a band who I have covered previously for this site. The Spanish Thrashers released their 3rd studio album “Rise From Chaos” in 2018 and whilst there were some good musical elements on it, the album was just another… Continue Reading →

Testament, Exodus & Death Angel – Manchester Academy 7/3/20

Without question this stellar thrash package, dubbed ‘The Bay Area Strikes Back’, was the best to hit our shores in a very long time. Indeed the legacy of each band is legendary to say the least as this colossal tour… Continue Reading →

Profanator – Fallen (FDA Records)

Mexican act Profanator are the final stab I got in my last reviews of this month and are by far the most progressive yet still inherently beastly on every song. This fourth album was actually out in 2018 on Mat… Continue Reading →

Slaughter Messiah – Cursed to the Pyre (High Roller)

Belgium’s deadly thrashers…a statement of fact from the PR material. Their earlier material has made waves for myself and I could not wait to hear their new output. One thing that is a touch missing is the large striking band… Continue Reading →

Necrowretch – The Ones From Hell (Season Of Mist)

For many years I had a purist outlook on Blackened Death Metal, it was a mix that I didn’t really enjoy. Mainly it’s sad to say for the Black Metal element. Whilst I’ve always been a fan of Black Metal… Continue Reading →

Sepultura – Quadra (Nuclear Blast)

This is quite easily Sepultura’s best album in a really long time. Sure, I’ve enjoyed the last 3 but nowhere near as much as this one. Perhaps is has to do with the quartering up of the album and that… Continue Reading →

Sylosis – Cycle Of Suffering (Nuclear Blast)

An award for the most unexpected release of the year thus far goes to Reading’s Sylosis having retuned from what seemed at the time to be a very definite hiatus (that usually segues into full time retirement from said band)… Continue Reading →

Bonded – Rest In Violence (Century Media)

FRRAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHH! There’s not a huge amount of great new thrash metal bands out there. Sure we had the thrash revival a few years back with bands like Evile & Municipal Waste waving the flag for those of us that used… Continue Reading →

Red Death – Sickness Divine (Century Media)

Crossover has not received the same resurgence and regurgitation as its purer cousin despite many of the dayglo thrash revivalists sounding more like D.R.I and S.O.D than Destruction and Kreator. Red Death from Washington D.C. bring it old skool. Sickness… Continue Reading →
