JT Ripper – Gathering of the Insane (I Hate)

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 charming; perhaps even an album.. Read More
Exodus, Sodom, Death Angel - London Electric Ballroom 6/12/18

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 when Zetro was thanking the.. Read More
Metal Church - Damned If You Do (Nuclear Blast)

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 their “Blessing In Disguise”/“Human Factor”.. Read More
Septagon - Apocalyptic Rhymes (Cruz Del Sur)

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 scene to the sturdy and.. Read More
Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased have been plying their morbid trade on official releases since way back in 1991. It’s been a long, long time since their last full length album, the excellent “Surreal Overdose” back in 2011, but I suspect not even death itself would be able to.. Read More
Sigh – Heir To Despair (Candlelight)

Sigh – Heir To Despair (Candlelight)

Anybody fancy a slice of fruitcake, best grab a jug of saké to wash it down with as this is an album that is going to be hard to digest even by arch nutters Sigh’s standards. The band never exactly started off normal and were.. Read More
Cancer -  Shadow Gripped (Peaceville)

Cancer – Shadow Gripped (Peaceville)

It’s pretty telling that with Cancer you have to mention that fourth album. Their first three early nineties albums were pretty darned well received and are still rightly held in high esteem by many fans of death and thrash metal. But you always have to.. Read More
Them - Manor Of the Se7en Gables (SPV)

Them – Manor Of the Se7en Gables (SPV)

Trans-Atlantic Power/Thrash outfit Them have returned once more, bringing with them another host of supernaturally inclined songs detailing the continued trials of the warlock K.K Fossor. 2016’s ‘Sweet Hollow’ began this tormented tale and it continues on at the Manor of the Seven Gables which..

Soulfly – Ritual (Nuclear Blast)

Soulfly – Ritual (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 20 years since Max Cavalera announced the presence of Soulfly on the music scene with their self titled debut album and despite numerous line-up changes over the years and some very noteworthy guest appearances, the band has always been an example of.. Read More
Gama Bomb - Speed Between The Lines (AFM)

Gama Bomb – Speed Between The Lines (AFM)

The Northern Irish fun filled thrash attack is back once again as Gama Bomb prepare to drop their payload of explosive and infectious thrash with album #6. Featuring some artwork which could rightfully be mistaken for a Judas Priest release, this 12-track, sub 40 minute.. Read More
Manticora - To Kill To Live To Kill (ViciSolum)

Manticora – To Kill To Live To Kill (ViciSolum)

It may come as a surprise to some, but Manticora have been a going concern for over 20 years. Their debut came out in 1999 and their Dark-tinged speed-driven Power Metal style spawned a further 5 albums over the following 8 years, culminating with “The.. Read More
Deathhammer- Chained To Hell (Hells Headbangers)

Deathhammer- Chained To Hell (Hells Headbangers)

What is Metal? In general that is, no longer can one refer to Black Sabbath as the sound of Metal because there are simply too many offshoots (and being a totally anal loser Black Sabbath are actually Doom Metal). For me it’s almost totally impossible.. Read More
