Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters – Come & Chutney (Riff Rock Records)

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters – Come & Chutney (Riff Rock Records)

In the world of the badger faced extreme metallers, there seems to be a competition to have the most indecipherable logo, doubtless to match their equally indecipherable hell screamed lyrics. Enter the world of the Iommi worshipping Doom community, and there is a similar competition.. Read More
Deus Vermin - Monument to Decay (FHED)

Deus Vermin – Monument to Decay (FHED)

As a local lad I’m not sure how I’ve managed to miss this Leeds bunch and their misanthropic excretions, but this is something I need to rectify in the near future as this EP puts them up there as a gem in the Yorkshire, and.. Read More
The Heretic Order – Evil Rising (Massacre Records)

The Heretic Order – Evil Rising (Massacre Records)

What has Heavy Metal become, as in real Heavy Metal. In some instances it has gone down the path of the ultra trve following the trails blazed by the likes of Tokyo Blade, Tygers Of Pan Tang and Praying Mantis. On the other hand however.. Read More
Evil Blizzard – The Worst Show On Earth (Crackedankles Records)

Evil Blizzard – The Worst Show On Earth (Crackedankles Records)

Straight outta Preston we have a gang of horror show freaks here who have been causing a bit of a stir. People in the know have mentioned Evil Blizzard to me in the past and told me I should check them out but so little.. Read More
Bodies On Everest - A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

Bodies On Everest – A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

North-west UK based trio Bodies On Everest are an intriguing group. With a name related to the highest graveyard in the world, it will come as no surprise that both the musical content and delivery lies on the doomier side of the spectrum. With approaches.. Read More
Orange Goblin – The Wolf Bites Back (Candlelight Records)

Orange Goblin – The Wolf Bites Back (Candlelight Records)

It’s 2018 and in short order the majority of the mainstream folks I work with have been variously excited by the FA cup final, a royal wedding, the forthcoming Steps and Aqua show in Dundee (I shit you not folks!), and now the forthcoming world.. Read More
Toledo Steel – No Quarter (Dissonance)

Toledo Steel – No Quarter (Dissonance)

Southampton’s Toledo Steel are on a great journey. Ever present in the UK metal scene over the last few years, I am quite pleased with the progression and this, to finally get to their debut album release. It just shows what can be achieved born.. Read More
Arrogant Destruktor - Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Arrogant Destruktor – Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Here’s a nice coincidence; I bought the limited cassette run version of this on spec a while back just because I liked the name, and it’s now getting a CD release. I still know very little about the band other than they appear to be.. Read More
Sykelig Englen – Hagall (AHPN Records)

Sykelig Englen – Hagall (AHPN Records)

Would it be strange to say that you have to be in the mood for DSBM? I don’t necessarily mean I want to be sad when I’m listening to it I just mean that sometimes its drab tones don’t always tickle my fancy. I do.. Read More
Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Given the kind of music that my own band plays, I’m surprised that I’ve never checked out Limb before. It seems like I’ve been missing out on something very special, certainly if this third L.P. is anything to go by. Prog infused and swagger-fueled doomy.. Read More
Primitai - The Calling (Dissonance)

Primitai – The Calling (Dissonance)

Based in the UK, a country surprisingly (and disappointingly) sparse in quality Melodic Metal bands, it’s great to hear a class act like Primitai flying the flag so confidently for old Blighty. Fledgling UK Metal bands (who aren’t pummeling their way down the extreme metal.. Read More
Monument – Hellhound (Rock Of Angels)

Monument – Hellhound (Rock Of Angels)

How not to make friends and influence me; open the album with a pirate themed song called ‘William Kidd’, make it historically dubious (if ever there was a guy whose crew didn’t do their best to serve him well it was Kidd, and he had.. Read More
