Venom – Storm The Gates (Spinefarm Records)

There are some bands out there that the words “seminal” and “influential” seem invented for. There are some bands out there whose back catalogue is so full of such utter bangers that it’s easy (and quite right) to forgive them… Continue Reading →

Master – Vindictive Miscreant (Transcending Obscurity)

What came first the Death or the Black? And other age old Metal questions with variable answers that have no doubt caused a riot of arguments across internet forums over the years. Yet it is to Death Metal we look… Continue Reading →

Lost Tribes Of The Moon – S/T (S/R)

These days, it’s not uncommon for bands to start taking inspiration and influences from the decades which helped create, diversify and cement rock and metal as genres. Many of the doom bands dip into the proto-metal and blues laden classic… Continue Reading →

Junkpile Jimmy – Wants You Dead (Cartel Ilustre)

Err…where to start. Ok, somewhere around 2005 when this was originally recorded and shelved by I assume Jimmy I guess. Or whoever the Californian behind this is. Yeah. Now it’s here. Just what the…   what the Hell is it? Well… Continue Reading →

Paranoid – Heavy Mental Fuck Up (The Sign)

Bands of this ilk are the reason I hurt my arm and damaged my pride 2 weeks ago. I am a portly man of 45 years who still cannot get past the idea that I cannot ride a skateboard. As… Continue Reading →

Diabolic Force – Praise Of Satan (Hells Headbangers)

Ravens Creed – Get Killed or Die Trying (Xtreem Music)

Well, I had to do a bit of a double take on the title of this one, as it reminded me almost immediately of The Rotted’s “Get Dead or Die Trying” from way back in 2008, but as you can… Continue Reading →

Arrogant Destruktor – Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Here’s a nice coincidence; I bought the limited cassette run version of this on spec a while back just because I liked the name, and it’s now getting a CD release. I still know very little about the band other… Continue Reading →

Whipstriker – Merciless Artillery (Hells Headbangers)

I love it when promo blurb describes an album as “highly anticipated”. Usually I’ve never even heard of the band and any amount of anticipation is probably only felt by the bands mums….. maybe. Not so with these Brazilian Venom… Continue Reading →

Warfist / Excidium – Laws Of Perversion And Filth (Godz Ov War Productions)

I was lucky enough to get hold of the album “Metal To The Bone” by Polish leather & stud enthusiasts Warfist last year and it couldn’t have had a more appropriate title so when the opportunity arose to write about… Continue Reading →

Funeral Winds – Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

…I get a feeling that 2018 is going to be a good year for fast, furious and brutal black metal… Now, Funeral Winds may take a bit of time getting a full-length record out, but when they do, they don’t… Continue Reading →

Midnight – Sweet Death and Ecstasy (Hells Headbangers)

We know Midnight here, you know Midnight too. After raising their profile on their last studio album, mainman Athenar comes back with another sterling release, but with some more elements than I expected. First up is ‘Crushed by Demons’, which… Continue Reading →
