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
Rude - Remnants…  (F.D.A. Rekotz)

Rude – Remnants… (F.D.A. Rekotz)

`Remnants…’ is the second full length studio album from Californian crew Rude, and it is quite a bone-crushing release I can tell you! Forget sunshine, forget glamour; this band sound like they live in a cold, dark, filth-smeared wasteland. This, folks, is an output of.. Read More

Fell Ruin - To The Concrete Drifts (I Voidhanger)

Fell Ruin – To The Concrete Drifts (I Voidhanger)

This is apparently the second release from US band Fell Ruin, but the first full length and the first I’ve heard of them. What’s within? Well ‘Respire’ is the acoustic guitar intro which takes route A and simply stops before a couple of solemn drum.. Read More
Obituary – S/T (Relapse Records)

Obituary – S/T (Relapse Records)

You don’t need me to waffle on about how good Obituary are. Over the past 30 odd years they haven’t made a duff record. Sure some have been better than others but in a similar way to veteran bands such as Overkill, Marduk & Cannibal.. Read More
Power Trip - Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord)

Power Trip – Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord)

Hailing out of Dallas, Texas, Power Trip are a pretty intense thrash metal group. With a very prominent early 80’s thrash sound mixed with some crossover thrash influences and some touches of grindcore and powerviolence in terms of the rhythmic assaults, this five piece mean.. Read More
King Woman – Created In The Image of Suffering (Relapse)

King Woman – Created In The Image of Suffering (Relapse)

The first time I heard the name King Woman was when they along with fellow support act Wax Idols jumped ship on a Pentagram tour due to less than savoury comments attributed to legendary front man and former major supporter of the agricultural poppy industry.. Read More
Six Feet Under – Torment (Metal Blade)

Six Feet Under – Torment (Metal Blade)

For twenty four years Six Feet Under, piloted by Chris Barnes, have been hammering away at our ears with, on the whole, pretty decent groove based death metal – leaving aside the four “Graveyard Classics” albums that were a total shitshow. “Torment” is SFU’s 12th.. Read More
Sanctuary – Inception (Century Media)

Sanctuary – Inception (Century Media)

Not a new album – quite the opposite! This is actually how it all started, this is how the band sounded before they were signed, before Dave Mustaine’s mentor-ship, before…to put it into a musical time context, these tracks were actually recorded before fellow Seattlers.. Read More
Desecrate the Faith – Unholy Infestation (Comatose Music)

Desecrate the Faith – Unholy Infestation (Comatose Music)

It’s pretty much guaranteed that if you’re a death metal band with a heavy anti-Christian theme to your lyrics, you’re going to drum up a substantial amount of interest rather quickly. If you then add in some furious blast beats, slamming riffs and all round.. Read More
Unearthly Trance - Stalking The Ghost (Relapse)

Unearthly Trance – Stalking The Ghost (Relapse)

It’s been a while. Six years since their last full length and ten since I last crossed paths with Unearthly Trance. As my losing touch was accidental (money, time, health) rather than deliberate it’s good to know where they are on album number six. The.. Read More
