Menschenfresser – Sterben (Boersma Records)

Roughly translated as ‘Man Eaters’, Menschenfresser are an old school death metal/thrash metal three piece who formed in 2006 and hail from Trier in the depths of the Rhineland in Germany. With two demos, an EP and three full length… Continue Reading →

Blodhemn – Mot Ein Evig Ruin (Soulseller Records)

Mr Invisus has been competently plugging away at this game since 2004, with full length releases in 2012 and 2014, and though it’s been five years since the sophomore album, we are reminded very quickly that quality trumps quantity. The… Continue Reading →

Dethonator – Race Against The Sun: Part One (Pavement Entertainment)

London’s Dethonator have been hard at work creating a follow up to 2013’s “Return To Damnation”. Full of tight knit blasts of classic era metal, they had laid their foundation and marked out their direction. New release, “Race Against The… Continue Reading →

Shrike – Zeitgeist Geistzeit (S/R)

Work cut out with this one. There’s very little information about German band Shrike to be found in English and this disc didn’t even come with a track listing. Still we like a challenge and reviewing things with all the… Continue Reading →

Flotsam And Jetsam – The End Of Chaos (AFM Records)

Now, while I know that Flotsam And Jetsam have been around for a really long time and have plenty of albums under their belt, the only one I’ve ever actually heard before is ‘No Place For Disgrace’, and that was… Continue Reading →

Insanity alert – 666 Pack (Season Of Mist)

Party thrash. The antithesis of Straight Edge. Beer kegs. Steins. Dayglo toxic waste. Big brimmed caps and hi top trainers.  Music for drinking not thinking. Fans of Municipal Waste, Gama Bomb and F.K.U will love these Austrian fellas. The tracklisting is… Continue Reading →

Nightmare A.D. – Phantoms of Our Ruin (Tenzenmen Records)

My knowledge of Cambodian metal can be written on the back of a postage stamp. In fact Nightmare A.D. is the only Cambodian band I could name. What I do know is that Nightmare A.D.’s instigator Mia Priest is a… Continue Reading →

Demonik – Rise From Chaos (S/R)

Veteran Spanish thrashers Demonik return with their third studio album to celebrate 11 years as a musical force in the Iberian Peninsula. With two full lengths and a double live album behind them, along with a new line-up, the band… Continue Reading →

JT Ripper – Gathering of the Insane (I Hate)

Well, this worked out a little different than I thought it might. Looking at the initial promo blurb, which talked about a German power trio taking an old school approach to heavy metal, I thought I’d be listening to something… Continue Reading →

Exodus, Sodom, Death Angel – London Electric Ballroom 6/12/18

I’m kinda annoyed that I missed Suicidal Angels, as I was looking forward to getting to see them. Granted I only have ‘Bloodbath’, so their set would have been mostly unfamiliar material, but from the roar of approval they got… Continue Reading →

Metal Church – Damned If You Do (Nuclear Blast)

After waxing lyrical about Metal Church re-uniting with vocalist Mike Howe on 2016’s excellent “XI” album, I’m personally overjoyed that they’ve returned with almost the same line up on “Damned If You Do”. With an added promise of further revisiting… Continue Reading →

Septagon – Apocalyptic Rhymes (Cruz Del Sur)

Last time out, Septagon didn’t quite live up to the hype and promise which the promotional material supplied with their album ‘Deadhead Syndicate’. Whilst it did bring some of the more technical and harder hitting aspects of the 80’s thrash… Continue Reading →
