10:13 – Result Of An Iron Age (Unclebaby Records)

This unknown quantity one man band generously arrived in CD form at Ave Noctum towers. Neil Carter is the man behind it and according to the blurb it it’s a depressive musical journey into humanity’s descent into a horrifying post-apocalyptic… Continue Reading →

Aenimus – Dreamcatcher (Nuclear Blast)

Bay Area metal bands conjure up a certain image. Bands like Death Angel and more recently Fallujah come to mind. What I heard of Aenimus’s second album release “Dreamcatcher” is more akin to Fallujah in its technicality and progressive edge…. Continue Reading →

Opprobrium – The Fallen Entities (High Roller)

If you’re anything like me then you’ll enjoy the history of genres and music in general. I love a good discussion on the sort of ‘what came first’ theories, where do genres begin? Why the sudden leap? For example look… Continue Reading →

Sanhedrin – The Poisoner (Cruz Del Sur)

If you’re middle aged, you’ve probably come to like metal via the classics: Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest. If you’re younger, you’ve most likely discovered these bands later, working your way back, so to speak, for you simply… Continue Reading →

Funereal Presence – Achatius (Sepulchral Voice)

Can genres ever really be reborn? I certainly believe so, after all I am a firm believer that genres never really die, there will always be someone out there drawing at least a small influence from a whole plethora of… Continue Reading →

Volcano – The Island (Tee Pee)

This mini album is the work of San Diego based psychedelic band Volcano. With psychedelia goes colour, and there’s plenty of that here. Even before we’d got through the first track we’d had African rhythms, electric funk and a little… Continue Reading →

Maestus – Deliquesce (Code 666)

I’m often at a loss for words to describe funereal doom. “Doomy and funereal”.  There, review done. Maestus, fittingly named from the Latin word for gloomy or mournful, formed in 2013 as a two piece, later taking on additional musicians… Continue Reading →

Ossuarium – Living Tomb (20 Buck Spin)

Death Metal is by the very nature of its name linked to all things repugnant. Yet does this always have to come from cascading slasher style shock value? Arguably no, the genre may have been well rounded and defined by… Continue Reading →

A Pale Horse Named Death – When The World Becomes Undone (Long Branch Records)

Normally you would associate anything musical hailing from Brooklyn to be of the hardcore variety, but there is a darker, heavier and suffocating presence which lurks in the depths of it. Originally, this beast was Type O Negative, but since… Continue Reading →

Flotsam And Jetsam – The End Of Chaos (AFM Records)

Now, while I know that Flotsam And Jetsam have been around for a really long time and have plenty of albums under their belt, the only one I’ve ever actually heard before is ‘No Place For Disgrace’, and that was… Continue Reading →

Krukh – Безглуздість Absurdity (I, Voidhanger)

What to bond over as metalheads when you meet a stranger in a strange land? Metal of course. Black Metal in this case. Ukrainian Markov Soroka and Uzbek Nyzam Salimbayev met in the US, both immigrants, and discovered that, apart… Continue Reading →

Malevolent Creation – The 13th Beast (Century Media)

I’m sure all reading this review have at some point in their lives faced bullying, opposition and overall ridicule for their taste in music, the way they present themselves and extra-curricular hobbies, I know I have. Yet sometimes you take… Continue Reading →
