Suffocation – …of the dark light (Nuclear Blast)

Suffocation have returned with their 8th full length album, a pummelling beast of a record, which they have executed with precision and technicality, through Nuclear Blast Records. Suffocation first introduced themselves to us in 1991 with their debut “Effigy of… Continue Reading →

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,… Continue Reading →

Discreation – Procreation of the Wretched (FDA Rekotz)

This German death metal troop have been recording for some time, this is my first experience of them and in true FDA Rekotz label fashion, this has end result that is a touch special! If you take the heritage of… Continue Reading →

Derogatory – Above All Else (FDA Rekotz)

Another band new to these ears –  Derogatory  have released their nine track debut album on the ever reliable FDA Rekotz. Hailing from Los Angeles the band play traditional USDM and play it well! After a cheeky little acoustic intro… Continue Reading →

Insanity – ‘Death After Death’ (Hells Headbangers)

In 1994, Germany’s M.B.R. Records (the label which spawned God Macabre’s impossible-to-find debut) unleashed Insanity’s ‘Death After Death’. For this US death metal band, such a mid-nineties release for their first album was both a blessing and a curse. From… Continue Reading →

Necrotic Disgorgement – Documentaries of Dementia (Comatose Music)

Arghhh, my eyes! Just look at that awful cover art. A grim scene, made even more horrible due to the fact it’s so badly digitally rendered that it just looks unbelievably bad. Had it not have been for the portrayal… Continue Reading →

Immolation – Kingdom Of Conspiracy (Nuclear Blast)

There must be literally millions of death metal bands in the world; many dwelling in total obscurity, and a tiny handful rising to the top to enjoy what I would tentatively call a `career’ in playing death metal. Immolation are… Continue Reading →

Six Feet Under – Unborn (Metal Blade Records)

It doesn’t seem all that long ago that I reviewed Six Feet Under’s ‘Undead’, the album which signaled an overhaul in the band’s ranks and their tried-and-trusted formula. In fact, checking the dates, it was well under a year ago…. Continue Reading →

Suffocation – Pinnacle of Bedlam (Nuclear Blast Records)

Where to begin? Well, how about ‘Effigy of the Forgotten’? In the days when you couldn’t simply discover a million bands and their respective discographies at the click of a button, an old copied tape could be like the holy… Continue Reading →

Execration – The Acceptance of Zero Existence (Comatose Music)

Execration began their assault on the bleeding ears of humanity with a textbook, brutal, death metal pummelling back in 2008. It was a superb introduction to the band which had until then only produced a couple of demos, one in… Continue Reading →

Incantation – Vanquish In Vengeance (Listenable Records)

New releases from old bands are bad news. Really? Some bands just do not accept that they have become ridiculous and have sold out, so instead they play what they are passionate about. See Autopsy’s new album, Asphyx’s ‘Deathhammer’, Immolation’s… Continue Reading →

Southwicked – Death’s Crown (Abyss Records)

This band has Allen West on guitar, looking rather old from the images I’ve seen recently. You all know him, the guy who played in Obituary and Six feet Under for a while. I have absolutely no doubt that Allen… Continue Reading →
