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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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…. Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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,… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Revocation – The Outer Ones (Metal Blade)

Boston’s Technical Death/Thrash Metal titans Revocation are back again and adding their latest effort into what has been a packed 2018 in terms of album releases, both released and upcoming. Whilst people have been heaping praise on bands like Behemoth… Continue Reading →

Paranoid – Heavy Mental Fuck Up (The Sign)

Bands of this ilk are the reason I hurt my arm and damaged my pride 2 weeks ago. I am a portly man of 45 years who still cannot get past the idea that I cannot ride a skateboard. As… Continue Reading →

Blood Of Serpents – Sulphur Sovereign (Non Serviam Records)

Often a sophomore album will be a marginal evolution from what came before. There are notable exceptions where a band tear up the script and start again completely; Darkthrone being an obvious candidate. Blood Of Serpents haven’t exactly thrown away… Continue Reading →

Necronomicon – Unleashed Bastards (El Puerto Records)

While they may have been around for 34 years now, Necronomicon only released four albums before taking a 10-year hiatus between ’94 and ’04, and are now releasing their ninth album without appearing to have lost any vitality along the… Continue Reading →
