The King Is Blind - We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer (Calva Records)

The King Is Blind – We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer (Calva Records)

I’ll be the first to admit that I only gave this a listen because it features a track with Karl Willetts on vocals. But I am certainly glad that I did, as the concept album that is ‘We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer’.. Read More
Power Quest – Sixth Dimension (Inner Wound Recordings)

Power Quest – Sixth Dimension (Inner Wound Recordings)

I remember watching Power Quest a few years ago. I am sure they were supporting Helloween and it was at the Camden Palace, or Koko as it now is. My recollection is of cheesy jollity. To their credit, Power Quest have established themselves internationally in.. Read More
Antisect – The Rising Of The Lights (Rise Above)

Antisect – The Rising Of The Lights (Rise Above)

Old crustbags never die, it just smells like it. Ah yes Antisect, the original squat the lot Anarcho punks have a hell of a history behind them which stretches right back to 1982 and has somehow resisted and existed and strived to survive through thick.. Read More
Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

‘Overland’ is the eighth full-length release from electronic duo Necro Deathmort, and their first on Profound Lore. The pairing have kept themselves busy over the last decade; as well as creating their own dynamic layers of sound, they have produced remixes for Steven Wilson (Porcupine.. Read More
Shrapnel - Raised On Decay (Candlelight Records)

Shrapnel – Raised On Decay (Candlelight Records)

UK thrashers from the land of six toes (Norwich) Shrapnel are a band who are on the rise. With a few EP’s out already and one full length which came out in 2014, along with some tours, supporting the likes of Overkill and playing Bloodstock,.. Read More
Atorc - Seven Tales Of Swords And Ale (S/R)

Atorc – Seven Tales Of Swords And Ale (S/R)

My Warhorns connection continues it seems. Typically though I missed Atorc when they played last year, and though they didn’t play this year I’m sure I spotted one of them. Wrong way round as usual. Anyway as the title of this suggests they are folk.. Read More
Meat Train – Random Acts Of Carnage (Contagion Records)

Meat Train – Random Acts Of Carnage (Contagion Records)

Meat Train’s 2013 debut “Flesh Made Man” was a cool record. From the eye catching cover art to the Londoners blend of filthy, primitive death metal the album was, for me at least a breath of pungent air and the exact polar opposite of a.. Read More
Cradle Of Filth - Cryptoriana: The Seductiveness Of Decay (Nuclear Blast)

Cradle Of Filth – Cryptoriana: The Seductiveness Of Decay (Nuclear Blast)

It’s hard to think that this is the first time in their 26 year history and after twelve albums that Dani Filth has released two official albums with the same line-up. This is something I never really took notice of until now as it was.. Read More
With The Dead - Love From With the Dead (Rise Above)

With The Dead – Love From With the Dead (Rise Above)

With The Dead’s self titled debut in 2015 was greeted with much acclaim. Having been the culmination of efforts from ex-Cathedral front man Lee Dorrian and former Electric Wizard members Tim Bagshaw and Mark Greening, the album was a lesson in crusty doom. Now the.. Read More
Peter And The Test Tube Babies – That Shallot (Arising Empire)

Peter And The Test Tube Babies – That Shallot (Arising Empire)

Groaning at the terrible punnage of the album cover I had to think carefully whether I really wanted to download and subject myself to this album; of course I couldn’t resist. Even though I haven’t listened to Peter And The Test Tube Babies in years.. Read More
The Prophecy – Origins (Ascension Music)

The Prophecy – Origins (Ascension Music)

The Prophecy eh, nobody foretold their return. Well I was surprised at any rate until I luckily found their new album Origins nestling in my junk folder among all the others needy for review. Naturally I grabbed it straight away as the Halifax doom crew.. Read More
Overoth - The Forgotten Tome (Hostile Media)

Overoth – The Forgotten Tome (Hostile Media)

Overoth’s grand vision is not only expressed in their music, but the artwork, for which they brought in Will Simpson, who was behind the artwork for Game of Thrones and DC Comics. “The Forgotten Tome” is Overoth’s second album release. Even the track title “Sigil.. Read More
