Night Demon - Darkness Remains (SPV)

Night Demon – Darkness Remains (SPV)

I have been a long-time supporter of this band, so with album number 2 up for grabs, it’s a no brainer for me to review this, no surprise to those who know me. This American band have toured for what seems forever over the past.. Read More
Nightbringer – Terra Damnata (Season of Mist)

Nightbringer – Terra Damnata (Season of Mist)

It’s time to get out your black, burning candelabras and best laying chickens ready to be slaughtered because ’tis the season of occult black metal and Nightbringer is back. With our very own Martin Harris quite rightly lauding the excellent Eleven Dragons by Acrimonious last.. Read More
Beast Modulus – Being (S/R)

Beast Modulus – Being (S/R)

I had absolutely no idea what this was going to sound like until I decided to just throw it in the player and find out. Apparently although now based in Brooklyn, Beast Modulus started out in New Orleans as a project based on composition of.. Read More
Venereal Baptism – Deviant Castigation Liturgy (Osmose)

Venereal Baptism – Deviant Castigation Liturgy (Osmose)

Maybe it’s because I’m an out of touch grumpy forty-five year old but I was prepared to be utterly underwhelmed by this, the debut release from Texans Venereal Baptism. Firstly…. They’re called “Venereal Baptism” and secondly they have a band member named “Fermentor”. What does.. Read More
Warbringer - Woe To The Vanquished (Napalm)

Warbringer – Woe To The Vanquished (Napalm)

Four albums under their belt and continually growing in strength and prominence, Californian thrash machine Warbringer don’t pull their punches or mess about. With their last release ‘IV: Empires Collapse’ getting some serious praise (Including a 9/10 from us!!), the scene is set for what.. Read More
Royal Thunder – Wick (Spinefarm)

Royal Thunder – Wick (Spinefarm)

Grabbing the chance to wade into Royal Thunder’s world is always a bit of a pleasure. The Atlantan quartet are right up my alley often warping the softer edges of classic rock and grunge with deft psych touches to create a warm, unctuous sound. New album, Wick,.. Read More
Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)

Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)

Yeah I took one look at band name and title and thought bunch of bloody kids trying to be controversial with rude words and all that. Not the case at all though, you wouldn’t get a starry eyed bunch of young ones turning down the.. Read More
The Obsessed – Sacred (Relapse)

The Obsessed – Sacred (Relapse)

Anyone old enough to remember the late night/early morning TV show Noisy Mothers may well remember what was my introduction to both The Obsessed and the strange confusion of street grit, conspiracies, spiritual musing and “seen it, done it, got the scars” musical force of.. Read More
Season of Arrows – Give it to the Mountain  (Argonauta Records)

Season of Arrows – Give it to the Mountain (Argonauta Records)

Whilst not the biggest of labels out there, Argonauta Records has delivered some real treats over the last couple of years that still manage to get regular plays here at Chez Spenny, no mean feat when I look at the ever grown stacks of CDs.. Read More
None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

It’s probably not surprising that there is little in the way of information available about a band called None. They don’t pop up in the normal places you would try and gather facts about everything from band members to releases, inside leg measurements and favourite.. Read More
Pharmakon – Contact (Sacred Bones)

Pharmakon – Contact (Sacred Bones)

Christ, it’s like being in the middle of an industrial cyber war. Distant and organised screaming punctuate this very dark edition of Dr Who. Throbbing electronic sounds are at the epicentre. Margaret Chardiet’s Pharmakon project is in its tenth year, and unlike her previous work.. Read More
Pallbearer – Heartless (Nuclear Blast)

Pallbearer – Heartless (Nuclear Blast)

Having set a precedent for emotive doom metal with soaring riffs and heart rending vocals on their previous two albums, Pallbearer take a completely new direction with third full-length ‘Heartless’. Now signed to Nuclear Blast, the Little Rock four piece have reinvented their sound, opting.. Read More
