Vader – Thy Messenger (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 18 years since I bought a Vader album and nearly as long since I have seen them live. The first thing that’s clearly apparent as I listen to this five track EP, they have lost none of… Continue Reading →

Spearhead – Pacifism Is Cowardice (Invictus)

A quick browse of t’internet tells us that Spearhead are from “southern England”, though we’re unable to identify specifically if they’re pointy-headed fucks from Cornwall, bumpkins from the West country, Mockneys from the home counties, toffs from Surrey, or wide… Continue Reading →

Weak Aside – Forward Into Darkness (FDA Records)

Another good ‘un from FDA Records here with the third full length from Germany thrashy death machine Weak Aside. I wasn’t familiar with the lads prior to receiving this but a bit of a blast through in the car on… Continue Reading →

Testament, Annihilator, Vader -LCR Norwich 3/4/18

It’s an early off tonight for the Polish veterans and the venue is steadily filling up when Vader take to the stage to give the Norfolk massive the full leather, studs and Satan experience. You’d think, given the other bands… Continue Reading →

In Silent – Martwy dopływ wisły (S/R)

Yep this is Polish, no problem with that, we get plenty of music from there and there is no shortage of extreme metal hailing from the country. The band’s Facebook page tells us that they are influenced by the likes… Continue Reading →

Apophys – Devoratis (Ultimate Massacre Productions)

Dutch technical death metal supergroup Apophys are back once again. For those who aren’t familiar with them, Apophys is composed of members who play/have played in Prostitute Disfigurement, Toxocara and God Dethroned. Having a pedigree behind them in terms of… Continue Reading →

Bloodshot Dawn – Reanimation (Hostile Media)

It’s all change on the Bloodshot Dawn front. Since the release of their second album, 2014’s “Demons” lone founder member, guitarist / singer Josh McMorran has recruited Canadian shredder Morgan Reid, drummer James Stewart (also of Vader and Divine Chaos)… Continue Reading →

Decapitated – Anticult (Nuclear Blast)

I’ve been a semi-regular visitor to Poland since the late 90’s, and I’ve brought back loads of Polish metal CD’s on my travels. Decapitated are one of the bands that I really grew to love, particularly with “Winds of Creation”… Continue Reading →

Fleshdoll – Heart Of Darkness (Great Dane Records)

I was quite taken with Fleshdoll’s fourth album “Blood Red District” when I reviewed it a couple of years ago so was chuffed to get this CD through the post and even more chuffed to hear it was an album… Continue Reading →

Hate – Tremendum (Napalm)

Hate are one of the long standing members of the well-renowned Polish death metal factory, having been going since 1990. Looking at their line-up, the drummer seems to have played with everyone, which is typical of the Polish scene. “Tremendum”… Continue Reading →

Resurgency – No Worlds…Nor Gods Beyond ( FDA Records)

No Worlds… is the second album by underground Greek death metal stalwarts Resurgency, and a mighty album it is indeed. Although Athens is a pretty sunny place most of the time, from listening to this album I would suspect that… Continue Reading →

Mercyless – Pathetic Divinity (Kaotoxin)

With the end to this year looking promisingly French with releases from Deathspell Omega and Antaeus placed tantalisingly in its back pocket, it seems timely for some old masters like Mercyless to pave the way with a slab of their… Continue Reading →
