Imperial Triumphant – Alphaville (Century Media Records)

Delving into the bottom of the weekly cauldron of hate that contains items for review, this fourth album by New Yorkers, Imperial Triumphant (a three piece although you’d never guess it from the gargantuan sound they produce), stuck out like… Continue Reading →

Khthoniik Cerviiks – Æequiizoiikum (Iron Bonehead)

Congratulations on this German trio for having the whackiest name, album and track titles I have encountered in a while. Just naming one song we have delights such as ‘Kollektiing Koffiin Naiils (Délire des Négations Sequence 1.0)’ to wade through…. Continue Reading →

Anubis Gate – Covered in Colours (Nightmare Records)

Tributes to other bands can be very interesting, and there is great potential for talented bands to interpret good songs and make them better. Anubis Gate is a talented band. I interviewed the band’s amiable multi-instrumentalist Kim Oleson a few… Continue Reading →

Fen – The Dead Light (Prophecy Productions)

Maintaining a level of prolificity that never feels rushed, Fen are named for the low-lying agricultural marshlands of East Anglia from whence they originally came and subsequently draw influence for their unique brand of progressive post-black metal. Forming in 2006… Continue Reading →

Tronos – Celestial Mechanics (Century Media)

Well, the premise of this album seemed too good to pass up. I’m a fan of Shane Embury – though trying to keep up with his dizzying array of bands can be difficult. This is his latest collaboration, a star-studded… Continue Reading →

Arroganz – Erzketer (FDA Records)

A bit of a short one for you this time. Arroganz, the German trio, released their “Primitiv” album back in 2017, which I awarded then an 8/10, saying at the time, “…this has the superficial sound of a band that’s… Continue Reading →

Voivod – The Wake (Century Media)

It’s been 5 years since Voivod last targeted earth, not that they haven’t been busy with smaller releases and extensive touring over that time. An album from the Canadian troops is pretty much a main event and they work steadfastly… Continue Reading →

VOR – Depravador (Third I Rex)

Vor? What is it good for? Quite a lot actually! A lot of the time when a release purporting to be “sludge” hits my inbox or doormat I am dismayed. Usually folks are so busy with the big riffs and… Continue Reading →

Khanus – Flammiron (I, Voidhanger)

Ready for some metal of death with shamanic drumming and chanting, occasional soprano vocals and choral aspects and even the use of a singing bowl? Well that should give you an idea that this album, the first from Khanus following… Continue Reading →

Expander – Endless Computer (Nuclear War Now)

Thrash + Nuclear War Now = Atompünk. Well that seems like a perfect genre for this bunch outta Austin Texas. I don’t know about you but a promo picture does speak words and the amount of artists with floppy fringes… Continue Reading →

Scalpel – Methods To Delusion (S/R)

Surprisingly there is only one band called Scalpel that I could find on my research into this US band and let’s face it that medicine, science, technology has given metal a wealth of band names. This is their second album… Continue Reading →

Dead Cross – S/T (Ipecac Recordings)

Super groups or artistic collaborations, call them what you will, hold a certain fascination. Riding the risky lines between potential magical genius, wanton self-indulgence or epic failure, there’s also the expectation for some unique identity rather than the safety of… Continue Reading →
