Satan – Cruel Magic (Metal Blade)

Satan – Cruel Magic (Metal Blade)

So, who is Satan? According to the more religious, he would be the Judaeo-Christian bogey-man of old. To those metal fans who like their band logos to be unreadable, he is the target of worship for assorted acts clad in spikes and smeared in blood,.. Read More

Pantheist – Seeking Infinity (Melancholic Realm Productions)

It’s not just the music that can be slow and laborious as far as funeral doom is concerned but also the time waiting patiently for it to arrive. There’s no DIY grindcore approach here, one take, a quick thrash and jobs a good un, here’s.. Read More
The Y2K Diary Of Cleo Howard - Sarah Tipper (Self Published)

The Y2K Diary Of Cleo Howard – Sarah Tipper (Self Published)

Sarah Tipper is a writer with a fine heavy metal obsession and a strange habit of feeding snacks to her Motorhead Snaggletooth poster. I mention the latter because Snaggletooth’s diet isn’t too far from this book’s eponymous heroine and I do worry about Ms Howard’s.. Read More

Death Line – Gary Sherman (Network Distributing)

Death Line – Gary Sherman (Network Distributing)

Ah the good old London Underground, iconic though it is for us Londoners it’s a place we only venture if totally necessary. Overcrowded, subject to meltdowns, a place where manners go completely out the window and I could go on and on and on. Today.. Read More
Leeched – You Took The Sun When You Left (Prosthetic Records)

Leeched – You Took The Sun When You Left (Prosthetic Records)

For me, hardcore is one of those styles that whilst crude on the surface is not uniform and has a lot to offer. It would be too posh to call it a genre. Anger and energy stand at the centre. You can express your fury.. Read More
Wytch Hazel – II: Sojourn (Bad Omen Records)

Wytch Hazel – II: Sojourn (Bad Omen Records)

Well, Wytch Hazel produced my album of the year in “Prelude” back in 2016, and it has remained in heavy rotation in my music list ever since. That album was a heady, smoky and somewhat charmingly naive piece of folk-ish rock warmth, with an insane.. Read More
