King Goat – Debt of Aeons  (Aural Music)

King Goat – Debt of Aeons (Aural Music)

Since 2012 and the departure of Robert Lowe, Candlemass have only released a single EP, albeit rumours abound of new work linked to some game or the other; well, what does that have to do with new release by Brighton’s own King Goat, ‘Debt of.. Read More
Lychgate – The Contagion In Nine Steps (Blood Music)

Lychgate – The Contagion In Nine Steps (Blood Music)

It is time to crawl through the Lychgate and enter a graveyard of ghoulish and macabre sounds once more. Be prepared for the weird, wonderful and downright ghastly sounds from a portal to another world to confront you in all their grandiose glory. This is.. Read More
Hamerex – The Abyss Vol 1 (IX Music)

Hamerex – The Abyss Vol 1 (IX Music)

Yorkshire’s Hamerex pulled out the big guns for their last release ‘Traitor’, now with a new line up, the band are set to release a trio of EP’s this year, the first being presented here simply titled Vol. 1. It’s released on their own label.. Read More
Napalm Death – Coded Smears and Other Uncommon Slurs (Century Media)

Napalm Death – Coded Smears and Other Uncommon Slurs (Century Media)

Look, let’s not waste anyone’s time here: you all know who Napalm Death are, and if – by any chance you don’t, well, then there’s frankly no hope for you by now. To say Napalm Death are an institution is probably something the West Midlands.. Read More
Godthrymm – A Grand Reclamation (Transcending Records)

Godthrymm – A Grand Reclamation (Transcending Records)

Supergroups aren’t a new idea, but are they always a good idea? A vast number of highly creative individuals crammed into one space with influences and styles running amok may sound like a recipe for success but it can potentially end in disaster. That being.. Read More
Winterfylleth - The Hallowing Of Heirdom (Candlelight)

Winterfylleth – The Hallowing Of Heirdom (Candlelight)

This album is one of those conundrums, a work that initially is both unexpected and yet such an obvious one too when just a moment of thought is given to it. But still, again, somehow surprising that they actually went and did it. If you.. Read More
Misanthropic Existence – Death Shall Be Served (Aesthetic Death)

Misanthropic Existence – Death Shall Be Served (Aesthetic Death)

I understand that this album is a re-release on the basis that the original had limited exposure, as is the way when bands on a limited budget can only do so much. Now released through the Aesthetic Death label and nicely packaged, this album and.. Read More
Foul Body Autopsy – This Machine Kills Zombies (S/R)

Foul Body Autopsy – This Machine Kills Zombies (S/R)

Okay so it’s no real secret that Death Metal and Horror go hand in hand, if anything I would probably blame Horror for my addiction to this bloodsoaked genre, and vice versa. As my interest in Death Metal subject matter has grown more depraved so.. Read More
Memoriam - The Silent Vigil (Nuclear Blast)

Memoriam – The Silent Vigil (Nuclear Blast)

It was quite a thing for Memoriam, comprised of course of members and ex-members of British Death Metal royalty, Bolt Thrower and Benediction, to have produced their excellent debut album, “For the Fallen” back in 2017, less than a year after they’d formed. It’s probably.. Read More
Desert Storm - Sentinels (APF Records)

Desert Storm – Sentinels (APF Records)

Once upon a time I arrived in London from the Antipodes and frequented a pub known as The Unicorn and happened upon an Oxfordshire band called Desert Storm. Happy man with mind suitably blown…the end. Not quite. Where would this young band go? This was.. Read More
Eliminator – Last Horizon (Dissonance)

Eliminator – Last Horizon (Dissonance)

So here it is, finally, their debut album. Having witnessed various line ups and investing in previous releases, the first full length album from Eliminator is upon us. This is perhaps their strongest line up to date too, and if the initial play through is.. Read More
Solstice -  White Horse Hill (Invictus)

Solstice – White Horse Hill (Invictus)

Twenty years. Twenty. Years. Two decades since the classic epic doom sounds of New Dark Age first graced us, and legends Solstice were only actually inactive for five of those. Since then the band have gigged, written, road tested, rewritten, demoed and road tested again.. Read More
