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 →

Catching attention supporting Obituary on these shores in 2018 and with The Sound Of Steel resonating in our ears this Californian Melodeath, thrash act are having a bit of fun and letting their hair down with this stop-gap EP. This… Continue Reading →

Klaw – LightCrusher (S/R)

This is the début album by the Swiss quintet, a thrash metal band and contain a member of Poltergeist, which turns out to be one unknown to me, as I only ever managed to pick up ’91s ‘Behind My Mask’…. Continue Reading →

Iron Age – The Sleeping Eye (20 Buck Spin Records)

I am slightly baffled as to why 20 Buck Spin has decided to pick this up for a reissue from Texan bunch Iron Age when the original release from 2009 is still easily available including the vinyl editions. Added to… Continue Reading →

Reveal! – Scissorgod (Sepulchral Voice)

My first experience with Sweden’s Reveal was putting their debut ‘Nocturne of Eyes and Teeth’ as my number one album of 2011. ‘Scissorgod’ represents their third release with a style now difficult to pin down. Black, death, thrash, even avant-garde,… Continue Reading →

Infection Code – In.R.I – Argonauta Records

One of the absolutely beautiful things about writing for this site, is the amount of curveballs you get thrown your way when putting your hand up for something you think you’ve got a pretty good understanding of. You often think… Continue Reading →

Blood Oath – Infernum Rex Diabolus (S/R)

The Latin of this album title sounds better than the rough English translation of Hell Devil King as this UK act releases their second album of mainly old school death metal tempered with traits of thrash as the band relishes… Continue Reading →

Sarke – Gastwerso (Indie Recordings)

Album number 6 for Sarke and they don’t seem to be letting up. The past black and roll has given way to more of an epic groove driven sound that still drips icy evilness from every pore.  The fact that Sarke… Continue Reading →

The Bleeding – Morbid Prophecy (World War Now Records)

This UK band’s debut full length in 2017, “Rites Of Absolution” was a textbook deathly demolition as the sophomore capitalises on the ferocity laid down to produce a set of songs that showcase the improved musicianship without loss of intensity…. Continue Reading →
