In Human Form - Opening of the Eye by the Death of I (I, Voidhanger)

In Human Form – Opening of the Eye by the Death of I (I, Voidhanger)

That’s one clunky album title but actually that’s Ok as this is one clunky album. Continuing on their everlasting quest to pick out the obscure and unfathomable, Italian label I, Voidhanger always manage to keep us on our toes and their latest trio of releases.. Read More
Acherontas – Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II) (World Terror Committee)

Acherontas – Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II) (World Terror Committee)

Penetrating the increasingly esoteric world of Acherontas V Priest and his various collaborators is becoming a bit of an adventure – albeit one that is bleak and unforgiving. The outfit undoubtedly made its initial impact with some impressive occult-driven black metal with unashamedly good, hook-filled.. Read More
Madrost – The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh (S/R)

Madrost – The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh (S/R)

Orange County, California may conjure up images of real housewives. For me I picture Laguna Beach, Irvine and a place called Lake Forest, which I know well. Not so well though to know that this is where progressive thrash metallers Madrost come from. “The Essence.. Read More
Iced Earth – Incorruptible (Century Media)

Iced Earth – Incorruptible (Century Media)

There are two distinctive styles of Power Metal. On one hand, you have the ‘European’ take on it, which focuses a lot on melodies in the tracks, the atmosphere of the song and it also heavily favours neo-classical elements, symphonic arrangements/accompaniments and folk like traits... Read More
Walpyrgus - Walpyrgus Nights (Cruz Del Sur)

Walpyrgus – Walpyrgus Nights (Cruz Del Sur)

Formed 5 years ago, this American heavy metal force is born with members from Twisted Tower Dire, While Heaven Wept and Viper. My interest started when ex-Widow drummer Peter Lemieux joined the band and subsequently bought their demo tape. Roll onto this debut album, and.. Read More
A Flourishing Scourge – S/T (Begotten Records)

A Flourishing Scourge – S/T (Begotten Records)

Eight “dynamic and ferocious” songs are promised on this debut from Seattle-based extreme progressive metallers A Flourishing Scourge. I’d agree there’s a degree of ferocity and extremity, and progressiveness in the way that breathless passages are taken in different directions. There’s plenty going on but.. Read More
Kalopsia – Angelplague (Horror Pain Gore Death)

Kalopsia – Angelplague (Horror Pain Gore Death)

Right first things first, I thought “kalopsia” would be the name of some sort of bum-disease or something. But no. I was wrong. According to my dictionary in means “a state or delusion in which things appear more beautiful than they really are. As a.. Read More
Morfin -  Consumed By Evil (F.D.A. Records)

Morfin – Consumed By Evil (F.D.A. Records)

`Consumed By Evil’ is the second full length release from Californian Death Metal stalwarts Morfin, and sounds just like it could have been released in the early 90’s. In fact, if someone had said to me that this album was a re-release of an underground.. Read More
Interview - All Them Witches

Interview – All Them Witches

If psychedelic rock is your thing, then All Them Witches are doubtless a band you’ll have heard of and listen to frequently – the dynamic Nashville quartet managed to sell the Lexington in Islington out so quickly that a second date had to be added.. Read More
Interview - Royal Thunder

Interview – Royal Thunder

Atlanta four-piece Royal Thunder are busy tugging heartstrings and capturing our imaginations with ‘Wick’, their third studio album and first on Spinefarm Records. While having described it as “the hardest one to make” out of all of their records, the band are relieved to see.. Read More
