Metal Church - Damned If You Do (Nuclear Blast)

Metal Church – Damned If You Do (Nuclear Blast)

After waxing lyrical about Metal Church re-uniting with vocalist Mike Howe on 2016’s excellent “XI” album, I’m personally overjoyed that they’ve returned with almost the same line up on “Damned If You Do”. With an added promise of further revisiting their “Blessing In Disguise”/“Human Factor”.. Read More

All Hail The Yeti – Highway Crosses (Minus Head)

Ah. Oh. Just when you think you’re not that far removed from the metal mainstream, at least in your heart if not your age, this turns up. All Hail The Yeti. I was promised “a hair raising mixture of superstitious ritual and trippy backwoods folklore…all.. Read More

Lividity – Perverseverance (Metal Age Productions)

When you get into Brutal Death Metal you have to be ready for a whole new shock factor. If you thought that your mum washing your Morbid Angel shirt back in the day was bad then imagine how she would feel washing a Torsofuck shirt... Read More

Master – Vindictive Miscreant (Transcending Obscurity)

What came first the Death or the Black? And other age old Metal questions with variable answers that have no doubt caused a riot of arguments across internet forums over the years. Yet it is to Death Metal we look today and some very classic.. Read More

Wurm Flesh – Excoriation Evisceration (Comatose)

How much more can I rant on about Brutal Death Metal? Probably a whole lot more, and I won’t stop until all reading this are polishing their Slam hammers and awaiting their first Waking The Cadaver gig. Any how as I have mentioned many a.. Read More
New Light Choir – Torchlight (Svart Records)

New Light Choir – Torchlight (Svart Records)

Many things came into my head while I was listening to this album, which is a good thing, but I cannot accept the claim that New Light Choir “are devoid of the trappings of retro worship”. I’d agree that “retro worship” is too strong a.. Read More
Ulthar – Cosmovore (20 Buck Spin Records)

Ulthar – Cosmovore (20 Buck Spin Records)

Everything about this album is gnarly, the artwork, the sound, the vocals, the drums, the guitar tone, the thundering bass; it has that grisly attitude of a grotesquely efficient death metal album yet it is tinged with the essence of something else too. All the.. Read More
Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased have been plying their morbid trade on official releases since way back in 1991. It’s been a long, long time since their last full length album, the excellent “Surreal Overdose” back in 2011, but I suspect not even death itself would be able to.. Read More
Idle Hands – Don’t Waste Your Time (Eisenwald)

Idle Hands – Don’t Waste Your Time (Eisenwald)

Band number 72,453 from the Portland Oregon area. Not sure what is in the water there but it seems to make everyone at least attempt to become a musician, thankfully with this lot, despite the title we are not completely wasting our time. Apparently 3.. Read More
Prezir - As Rats Devour Lions (Godz OV War Productions)

Prezir – As Rats Devour Lions (Godz OV War Productions)

Prezir are relatively new to the metal community, formed in 2016, with their name translating to the literal meaning of ‘Contempt’ in Serbian. When thinking of death metal juggernauts, Milwaukee isn’t one of your classic destinations to spawn a ravenous, dirty, death metal outfit, but.. Read More
Lost Tribes Of The Moon – S/T (S/R)

Lost Tribes Of The Moon – S/T (S/R)

These days, it’s not uncommon for bands to start taking inspiration and influences from the decades which helped create, diversify and cement rock and metal as genres. Many of the doom bands dip into the proto-metal and blues laden classic rock sounds to augment their.. Read More

The sophomore album by the American melodic metal band Witherfall is a farewell to their former drummer Adam Paul Sagan, who died of lymphoma in 2016. Comprising of song writing duo Jake Dreyer (guitar) and Joseph Michael (vocals, keyboards) with bassist Anthony Crawford and session.. Read More
