Since the release of 2016’s ‘Welcome to Nothing’, South-eastern four-piece Grave Lines have been met with critical acclaim, earning themselves a space on the line up for Desertfest 2017, as well as support slots for the likes of Oathbreaker, Ufomammut and Cough. Considering the band.. Read More
De Profundis - The Binding Light Of Faith (Transcending Obscurity)

De Profundis – The Binding Light Of Faith (Transcending Obscurity)

When I saw De Profundis’ latest offering on the review list, I was keen to secure the beast as I had been a fan of their work for a few years now. Having been witness to their brutality and clinical execution in the live setting,.. Read More
Bong – Thought and Existence (Ritual Productions)

Bong – Thought and Existence (Ritual Productions)

Somewhat over four years ago, I was called upon to review an album by Bong, namely ‘Stoner Rock’, and on that occasion, it’s fair to say that particular offering had a harsh reception, where I described it as sounding akin to a stoned zombie trying.. Read More

Boss Keloid – Melted On The Inch (Holy Roar)

“You will be surprised by our next album mate! It Is NOTHING like anything else we have done. In fact, it is almost a 180 in comparison to Herb!” These were the words of Paul Swarbrick, guitarist and tone monster of Boss keloid, back at.. Read More
Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Well I have listened to this album every day for the last 10 or so. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and it hasn’t been a chore in the slightest. It’s just that a work of this breadth and depth is not going to.. Read More
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

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
