Weathered Statues - Borderlands (Svart)

Weathered Statues – Borderlands (Svart)

I suppose there isn’t much that shows the effect of the tooth of time so well like statues exposed to the elements. Although they are usually made from durable materials like marble, bronze or cement, time, wind and weather will tear them down. The same.. Read More
Serum Dreg – Lustful Vengeance (Invictus Productions)

Serum Dreg – Lustful Vengeance (Invictus Productions)

Serum Dreg sounds like an anagram to me. I can see murder and greed in there. The reality is that this debut from the US black metallers concentrates on the worship of sex, hedonism and ritualistic chaos. The fact that you can buy this album.. Read More
Skan - Death Crown (Van Records)

Skan – Death Crown (Van Records)

‘Death Crown’ opens up with an eerie intro, knocks, and screeches a plenty, which all builds to an anticipatory feeling that surrounds the release from this American blackened death crew. Skan then launch into the album proper, and deliver us to their hellish blackened world.. Read More

Dee Calhoun – Go To The Devil (Argonauta Records)

Perhaps best known as the voice of Iron Man, a stalwart of the underground world of Doom that has now finished with the far too early death of founder Alfred Morris III, Dee Calhoun proves that he is in no way a man just content.. Read More

Do you have any Earthless in your life? If the answer to that question is a resounding “no”, it’s time for you to remedy that immediately, and before you go searching for the back catalogue this San Diego three piece has accumulated in their years.. Read More

Octopus – Supernatural Alliance (Rise Above)

In the words of founding member J Frezzato (formerly of Electric Six), Octopus is an underground, psychedelic rock beast which ‘just is’ for lack of a better and more accurate description. It doesn’t ‘conform’ to the millions of sub-genres, nor the widely accepted approaches many.. Read More
Sentient Horror – The Crypts Below (Testimony Records)

Sentient Horror – The Crypts Below (Testimony Records)

Back in 2016 I was lucky enough to get the debut Sentient Horror album “Ungodly Forms” through to review…..and I won’t lie, it made me chub up a bit. The ludicrously good, old school Swedish DM vibe….. expertly replicated by these oiks from New Jersey.. Read More

Of Feather And Bone – Bestial Hymns Of Perversion (Profound Lore)

Of Feather And Bone – Bestial Hymns Of Perversion (Profound Lore)

What makes Death Metal true? Probably in some respects an old school flare, bands such as Obituary, Autopsy and Cannibal Corpse. Delve deeper however and you find the likes of Infester, Incantation and Rottrevore, hailing these bands are a new breed of disgusting, pestilent artists... Read More
Veiled – Black Celestial Orbs (Iron Bonehead)

Veiled – Black Celestial Orbs (Iron Bonehead)

Black Metal has so many forms, and to be honest to state that you don’t like the genre would be painfully wrong. I have been lucky enough to be able to gain enjoyment from almost all areas of the genre, from its most raw creations.. Read More
Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper - Split (Relapse Records)

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper – Split (Relapse Records)

I think I must have been quick off the blocks to get a hold of this from Thee Ed, as I know that both Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper are some of the most hotly regarded bands of the last couple of years, and this short.. Read More
Ilsa – Corpse Fortress (Relapse)

Ilsa – Corpse Fortress (Relapse)

Washington D.C five-piece Ilsa are well versed in the art of doom-death, having cut their teeth on splits with the likes of Hooded Menace, Coffins and Seven Sisters of Sleep. However, the defining characteristics of the band’s previous albums are the overtones of crust punk.. Read More
