Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Transcending Obscurity)

I reviewed Henry Kane’s (actually, the grind alias of Death Metal royalty Jonny Petersson) last album for this very publication, giving it a 7/10, though with more repeated listens, I should have awarded it an 8, as several of the… Continue Reading →

Xpus – In Umbra Mortis Sedent (Transcending Obscurity)

I’ve been busy ticking off some much-needed classics from my record collection, Priest, Alice Cooper, AC/DC, etc. Not to mention my current lust for shameful Prog, in the vein of Marillion namely and perhaps less embarrassingly Pink Floyd. Aside from… Continue Reading →

Live Burial – Unending Futility (Transcending Obscurity)

It’s nice to see bands grow, when you can remember seeing them as some tiny band in a pub only to witness them be signed to a more major label. It can of course ruin bands making them play to… Continue Reading →

Wardaemonic – Acts Of Repentance (Transcending Obscurity)

Not being familiar with this lot from Australia other than knowing they have put out a few albums, I was kind of expecting some rabid bestial filth somehow. What I got however whilst no less aggressive was…more focussed. The album… Continue Reading →

Medium – S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

Innards – Back From The Grave, Straight In Your Face (Transcending Obscurity)

Colosso – Apocalypse (Transcending Obscurity)

There have been plenty of bands that have used the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse as the staging for their sonic annihilation as this Portuguese outfit has four songs for the four horsemen with each having a different vocalist to… Continue Reading →

Bednja – Doline Su Ostale Iza Nas (Transcending Obscurity)

Hardcore and punk are well established in the underground music scene of Croatia, black metal not so much. This has many reasons, one of them being that Croatia was and still is a less prosperous nation than those where black… Continue Reading →

Paganizer – The Tower Of The Morbid (Transcending Obscurity)

I find it kind of funny that whilst Metal as a whole is the beating heart of the underground it is massively popular, I mean look at Wacken, Hellfest and to a lesser extent Download, these are hugely successful gatherings…. Continue Reading →

Come Back From The Dead – The Rise Of The Blind Ones (Transcending Obscurity)

Name a death metal band from Spain….come on quick….. you can’t can you. Well, I can…. And not only are Come Back From The Dead from  A Coruña but they are killer too! What does Spanish death metal sound like?… Continue Reading →

Eternal Storm – Come The Tide (Transcending Obscurity)

Spanish Progressive Melodic Death Metal quartet Eternal Storm initially began life as a band called Death Valley back in 2006. After 3 years, they changed, becoming Eternal Storm and have since spent the past 10 years honing their abilities. With… Continue Reading →

Burial Remains – Trinity Of Deception (Transcending Obscurity)

Seven tracks, twenty five minutes, old school death metal…… what’s not to like? Well…. Not much actually as this is a total blast and another win for Transcending Obscurity that has an absolutely stellar roster of bands. Burial Remains formed… Continue Reading →
