Affliktor – S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

The gifted, guitar wizardry of Toby Knapp returns with another project, Affliktor. Having reviewed his 2016 release for Waxen, the prospect of another dose of blackened thrash metal was both intriguing and exciting. Again, Knapp is the one man band; the master of ceremonies; the.. Read More

King Parrot – Ugly Produce (Agonia)

Could they keep up the quality? “Bite Your Head Off” did exactly that then two years ago “Dead Set” showed that these Melbourne boys are certainly not here just to fuck spiders. So there was some trepidation when I hit play on Ugly Produce their.. Read More
