Héboïdophrénie – Cannibalism For Dummies (Great Dane Records)

Héboïdophrénie is a form of schizophrenia part of psychoses in psychopathic expression and is one of those band names that you can imagine came well before they had written any music. “Let us think of something dark, dingy and mental… Continue Reading →

Vampire – Rex (Century Media)

‘Rex’ is a long awaited follow up to 2017’s ‘With Primeval Force’ which developed the band from their debut release. Here on ‘Rex’ I find them going back in the majority to their early sound whilst still retaining those lesson… Continue Reading →

Mordred – Volition (Independent)

I’m actually surprised I was never more of a Mordred fan in my youth. It probably has more to do with only ever seeing their albums once or twice in ZA and never getting a chance to actively listening to… Continue Reading →

Sarpa – Solivagus (S/R)

A bit of everything here from Texan project Sarpa. It’s not often you hear a driving African drum beat fused with black metal. That was for openers. Black metal fury continues with “Triad of Might”. It’s expansive, epic and downright… Continue Reading →

Shrapnel – Palace For The Insane (Candlelight)

Norwich based thrashers Shrapnel are back and much like their name, they are tearing through things without mercy, cutting down all in their path with furious riffs, scathing vocals and piercing lead guitar work. Last time out, “Raised On Decay”… Continue Reading →

Ormskrik – S/T (Fysisk Format)

Far from just being an anagram of a market town in Lancashire famous for gingerbread, Ormskrik from Norway promise a “fusion of Bay Area thrash, Norwegian black metal and Swedish death metal”. The whirlwind gets going, there is a piercing… Continue Reading →

Xibalba – Años en Infierno (Southern Lord)

The title of this latest offering from Californian hellraisers Xibalba couldn’t be more apt regarding the situation society currently finds itself; with the music contained within feeling relevant for such depressing times (volveremos al título del álbum más tarde, para… Continue Reading →

Satan Worship – Teufelssprache (Folter Records)

Speaking in “the Devil’s tongue,” here we have a trio with members split between Germany and Brazil some of whom also play in Sodomizer and Hellkommander along with a drummer who has done time in both Destruction and Morgoth. Can… Continue Reading →

Vader – Solitude In Madness (Nuclear Blast)

I think one of the main keys to a successful band is consistency. When a band has a change in sound part way through their career it often deters many fans. I think that a gradual change or light change… Continue Reading →

Blasphamagoatachrist – Bastardizing The Purity (Nuclear War Now)

Is War Metal the trvest genre of all? Or is it just a little too try hard? I care less and less about being ‘kvlt’ everyday, life’s too short, just have fun (damn I sound lame). Despite this pathetic rambling… Continue Reading →

Ripped To Shreds – Luan (Pulverised Records)

The mastermind behind the Death metal project Ripped To Shreds, Andrew Lee is back and this time, with a new line up which includes members of Trenchrot, Death Fortress, Funebrarum and Gridlink, he is set to unleash the second full… Continue Reading →

Testament – Titans of Creation (Nuclear Blast)

Testament are quite easily one of my favourite thrash bands, and like the majority of them, come from the Bay Area. That could be because I was introduced to most of them by a kid from Oakland that was over… Continue Reading →
