Uniform & The Body – Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back (Sacred Bones)

Uniform and The Body’s first collaboration ‘Mental Wounds Not Healing’ was founded on a mutual appreciation of each other’s work; ‘Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back’ was written in the wake of high demand for more of the electrifying horror… Continue Reading →

Here Lies Man – No Ground To Walk Upon (Ridingeasy Records)

Firmly entrenched in a 70s riff rock vibe, US based Here Lies Man offer a wholly new approach to the genre by incorporating African stylised beats to their enthralling songs which will hook you instantly with their innate catchiness. I… Continue Reading →

The Offering – Home (Century Media)

It’s safe to say that nobody sounds like The Offering, yet The Offering sound like everybody. Since their inception in 2015, this US four piece have honed their scattered influences before churning out this debut full length. The result is… Continue Reading →

Osi and the Jupiter – Grå Hest (Eisenwald)

In recent years there has seemingly been a healthy surge in acoustic neofolk outfits and although at face value this style may be a world apart from most metal outfits, the genre has been adopted by large swathes of the… Continue Reading →

Thief – Map of Lost Keys (Prophecy)

Dylan Neal’s other band, Botanist, might not be to everyone’s taste (hammered dulcimer black metal anyone?) but it certainly makes a change from listening to a very long line of black-metal-o-likes queuing up to deliver their take on something that… Continue Reading →

Abysmal Lord – Exaltation Of The Infernal Cabal (Hells Headbangers)

It is often frowned upon to be a genre Nazi. I can understand why, after all it is a bit like being lectured if you happen to fall prey to such a creature. I myself am a genre Nazi however,… Continue Reading →

Cerebral Rot – Odious Descent Into Decay (20 Buck Spin)

Truth be told, I hadn’t heard of Cerebral Rot before I tentatively put my hand up to give it the once over, but Death Metal (and certainly the gorier side of things) has piqued my interest over the last couple… Continue Reading →

Russian Circles – Blood Year (Sargent House)

Having just journeyed to Chicago on a work trip, I was amazed at how many music venues and venues playing host to live music there seemed to be. The city seemed to be steeped and influenced by music in a… Continue Reading →

Lord Gore – Scalpels For Blind Surgeons (Everlasting Spew)

They may have departed this earth 15 years ago with second album Resickened way back in 2004 but Lord Gore have never rested in pieces and now they have returned from the dead! It would have been impossible to actually… Continue Reading →

Sertraline – From Both Our Hands (Hypnotic Dirge)

First of all, for clarification this is Sertraline from the cold climes of Buffalo, USA, not the north of England one. Second, my enquiries took me to an anti-depressant of the same name. This Sertraline, whose second EP this is… Continue Reading →

Carnifex – World War X (Nuclear Blast)

I have a strange relationship with Deathcore, a lot of bands from this genre merely came across to me as cheap Death Metal, and in fact most still do. Nevertheless Whitechapel appeared to me as something else, and for a… Continue Reading →

Silence In The Snow – Levitation Chamber (Prophecy)

After being the equivalent of a persona non grata for quite some time, goth rock seems to be having a revival at the moment. That’s fine with me, because I like goth rock. New bands from the US seem to… Continue Reading →
