Madball – For The Cause (Nuclear Blast)

Back in the late eighties when Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret first let his 12 year old brother Freddy Cricien jump on stage and take the mic no one could have thought that “Madball” Freddy and his pals would still be recording Hardcore and would become.. Read More

Hoth – Astral Necromancy (Epicurus Records)

I must confess I am a man of extremes and when it comes to music I always have been, from my teenage years and the race to find the heaviest band on earth to my later adoration for Brutal Death Metal. This search for extremity.. Read More

UADA – Cult of a Dying Sun (Eisenwald)

The black metal genre is well and truly saturated with an endless stream of demos and albums appearing on a daily basis. This is great news for fans of the genre but it also means that there is a lot of very mediocre material to.. Read More

Old Man Wizard – Blame It All On Sorcery (S/R)

Old Man Wizard; well doesn’t that name conjure a few images? I expected a battering of down tuned guitars, sludge laden riffs, and a fog of THC fumes to come rolling out of the speakers, and indeed for the first few chords, that sounded like.. Read More

Panegyrist – Hierugy (I Voidhanger Records)

This is the debut full length release for Panegyrist and it is an eclectic mix of avant- garde black metal, brutality, beauty and splendour. ‘Hierugy’ is a six track beast and opens with a minimalistic sub 2 minute wonder and leads through the album with.. Read More
None – Life Has Gone On Long Enough (Hypnotic Dirge)

None – Life Has Gone On Long Enough (Hypnotic Dirge)

Aint that album title the truth? Well it must feel like that to everyone at some point and None as their name suggests have probably not got the best outlook on life and are here making music and at least, even if it is in.. Read More

Wolvhammer – The Monuments of Ash and Bone (Blood Music)

So, my first time out listening to Wolvhammer, though a cursory mooch about on the internet tells me that they’re well established in the US, boasting members or ex-members of acts such as Abigail Williams, Skeletonwitch, Nachtmystium and Krieg. This appears to be their fourth.. Read More

Psychedelic doom metal on Neurot, what could possibly go wrong? After a debut album and a split with Fister, Chrch was signed by the famous label and now unleashes “Light Will Consume Us All” upon the world. With only three tracks and a total playing.. Read More
Mos Generator – Shadowlands (Listenable Records)

Mos Generator – Shadowlands (Listenable Records)

It was 2016 when the mighty Mos Generator released the excellent ‘Abyssinia’, an album that rode high in my top 10 of the year, and has been regularly spun ever since. To support that particular release the band pounded the road, including a run with.. Read More
Skinless – Savagery (Relapse)

Skinless – Savagery (Relapse)

What does it take to make a mark in the world of metal? In this day and age it probably isn’t enough to merely be the heaviest of the heavy, the crown is moved on an almost daily basis and with different opinions on what.. Read More
Fister – No Spirit Within (Listenable)

Fister – No Spirit Within (Listenable)

This is Fister’s fourth full length release in nearly a decade. A decade that has been peppered with splits to keep the sludge thirsty sated.  The St Louis trio’s last album – 2015’s IV was one crushing 45 minute monolith of metal – no bite size.. Read More
