Cruella – Metal Revenge (S/R)

This US band formed in 1986, some of you may remember the name, they came at a time when power/speed metal was a real force and in ’89 they released ‘Vengeance is Mine’, nowadays an obscure underground release). Over the… Continue Reading →

Skelator – Cyber Metal (Gates of Hell)

I thought it had been 9 years since I bought a release by this US band, in fact it was a touch sooner as they had a split release with Substratum in more recent times. If you need to categorise… Continue Reading →

Ripped To Shreds – Demon Scriptures (Pulverised Records)

There is a lot to be said about introducing cultural influences as lyrical inspirations and conceptual themes for songs and albums. Sometimes it works rather well, sometimes it backfires and people get up in arms about it and call cultural… Continue Reading →

The Lord Weird Slough Feg – New Organon (Cruz Del Sur)

Once upon a time there was a band called The Lord Weird Slough Feg. After two or three albums they changed their name to the snappier Slough Feg. Now they’ve changed it back. I have no idea why if I’m… Continue Reading →

The Black Moriah – Road Agents Of The Blast Furnace (Folter Records)

Biblical mountains and an album title that sounds straight out of a Mad Max or generic knock off Italian post-apocalyptic film. I have sat here trying to make sense of The Black Moriah for a little while now. They describe… Continue Reading →

Cave In – Final Transmission (Hydra Head)

Cave In are one of those bands that have managed to divide and confound opinion over the course of their almost 25 years existence as a band from both positive and negative perspectives. With feet in numerous camps from a… Continue Reading →

Nebula – Holy Shit (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Holy Shit! Where’s the exclamation mark? That’s right, after a decade since their last album, Fu Manchu alumni Nebula return, and ‘Holy Shit’ is not really an expression of surprise, although it could well be, rather a simple description of… Continue Reading →

Fetid – Steeping Corporeal Mess (20 Buck Spin)

I’ve said it before but it’s worth reiterating, I love Death Metal and the horror that comes with it. Fun fact, when I was a teenager I saved up all my pocket money for a few weeks just so I… Continue Reading →

Death Angel – Humanicide (Nuclear Blast)

Humanicide is Death Angel’s ninth album and fourth with the current line-up that’s been together for 10 years already. Going from strength to strength and losing absolutely none of their vitality over the years, this album is as fast and… Continue Reading →

Leathurbitch – Into the Night (High Roller)

This American band combines speed metal with glam/sleaze metal from the 80’s. Many may never have heard of bands of times past doing a similar thing, this is apparently done within the confines of the modern metal scene (are there… Continue Reading →

Tanith – In Another Time (Metal Blade)

Certainly an apt album title! Tanith are really going for that “In Another Time” vibe (man…), and there is plenty about their sound that is indeed from another era. They are certainly not your usual Metal Blade type band (a… Continue Reading →

Spirit Adrift – Divided by Darkness (20 Buck Spin)

Ah, the rebirth of the resurrection of the classic age of heavy metal continues! You know, I’m absolutely loving the last few albums from Grand Magus, and the denim-vested antics of home grown outfits like Arkham Witch, who just aren’t… Continue Reading →
