Midnight – Rebirth by Blasphemy (Metal Blade)

With over 30 releases and literally hundreds of songs Athenar of Midnight is finally getting some sort of recognition at last. The plug in and play dynamic of the early days has of course expanded to include a live backing… Continue Reading →

Aggressive Perfector – Havoc at the Midnight Hour (Dying Victims)

‘Satan’s Heavy Metal’ was a raw demo released some 3 years ago, I have witnessed the band live on numerous occasions and I must say, this debut album release is a slap in the face surprise. The raw energy remains,… Continue Reading →

Toxic Holocaust – Primal Future (eOne)

Has it really been 20 years?! Joel Grind came onto the scene, I remember being excited about the first couple of full-length releases (there were a fair few splits and demo releases also), I still remember the vibrant vinyl of… Continue Reading →

Nocturnal Breed – We Only Came For The Violence (Folter)

I would struggle to think of a new genre of Metal that has had as much of an impact as Black Metal has had. Sure you have Nu-Metal, Deathcore, Metalcore and even Groove Metal but all of these genres have… Continue Reading →

Cemetery Lights – The Underworld (Nuclear war Now!)

USBM from Rhode Island – Cemetery Lights have a penchant for the classics. I am not talking Mayhem and Darkthrone I mean ancient civilisations.  They released a debut cassette Lamuralia last year which focussed on Rome, this was followed by the… Continue Reading →

Urn – Iron Will Of Power (Season Of Mist)

To talk about politics at the moment in the UK is a touchy subject and one that I can be quite passionate about when in the right company. Backing this up my home town of Ipswich (check it out, great… Continue Reading →

Scumripper – All Veins Blazing (Hells Headbangers)

Twenty minutes is all you get so pay attention numbnuts! This is nasty, dirty metal punk encrusted with sacrificial blood and beer stains.  This is the Finnish trio’s debut full length following on from their self titled demo in 2015. The… Continue Reading →

Turbocharged – Above Lords, Below Earth (GFY Productions)

Sweden’s Turbocharged have been on the periphery of my extreme metal radar for a number of years but I have never really got round to delving into their back catalogue fully so I opted to take this album on for… Continue Reading →

Bewitcher – Under the Witching Cross (Shadow Kingdom)

Bewitcher are a really cool band, their demo tapes dragged me into their filthy dirty speedier metal quite some time ago, this is their second full length having previously worked their socks off in the underground scene on the back… Continue Reading →

Black Magic – Wizard’s Spell (Dark Essence)

Maybe it’s just me (and invariably when I say that, it has often been known to be), but I feel really edgy and apprehensive when a record label re-issues a release calling it “Legendary” and as with this one, “One… Continue Reading →

Usurper – Lords of the Permafrost (Soulseller Records)

From the mist-covered eerie at the top of Castle Ave Noctum, Thee Editor sends trained bats bearing lists of albums to be reviewed down to the homes of the loyal staff. Now, being a cove of advanced age, most of… Continue Reading →

Undead Prophecies – Sempiternal Void (Listenable Records)

Death metal, eh? I mean, one minute there you are in a thrash metal t-shirt and drinking cider down the park listening to “Scream Bloody Gore”, you blink, and then the next moment you’re rapidly approaching your mid 40s, and… Continue Reading →
