Kapala – Termination Apex (Dunkelheit Productions)

For those of you who didn’t catch my review of Kapala’s debut EP Infest Cesspool, here’s the highlights: Aaaaaaaaaaaggggggggguuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! Basically Kapala don’t fuck around. This is bestial war metal of the most fucked up order. Ultra-guttural, ultra-brutal, grinding blackened noise…. Continue Reading →

Thorybos – The Foul And The Flagrant (Bleak Bone Mortualia)

There’s nothing better than a short, concise and on point PR statement rather than a gushing overblown essay on why you should listen to a band. That’s exactly what we got here as an introduction to German black deathsters Thorybos… Continue Reading →

Deiphago – I, The Devil (Hells Headbangers)

Blackened Death Metal, can there be a more pure genre? A marriage of perfect proportions bringing together all that is good from the underground and merging these two scenes in seamless harmony. However I can’t say I’ve always been the… Continue Reading →

Imprecation – Damnatio Ad Bestias (Dark Descent)

One thing that I really love about being completely obsessed with music is discovering all of the cult bands and releases. It fills you with a strange sense of achievement as if you’ve attained some sort of prowess in your… Continue Reading →

Goatkraft – Sulphurous Northern Bestiality (Iron Bonehead)

War Metal, the veracious embodiment of stereotypes within the Metal scene. Outsiders looking in on the world of Metal see themes of horror, blasphemy, destruction, warfare and chaos. If you’re being completely honest with yourself are these not the things… Continue Reading →

Eggs Of Gomorrh – Outpregnate (Krucyator Productions)

You what? Yep it’s kind of difficult taking the group name seriously here. Every time I think of it I get images of a missing Tom Baker Doctor Who adventure written by Terry Nation. No doubt if it had existed… Continue Reading →

Devouror – Slay For Satan (Metal Zone)

New year, new EP, new band. Fresh start and all that. Well, I say fresh but this fetid blast of ‘bestial deathcult warfare’ is not exactly the sweet smelling air of some Norwegian forest. Nah, this is a short three… Continue Reading →

Archgoat – The Luciferian Crown (Debemur Morti)

We all set out with our Metal virginity and naivety intact, chipping away at each of them from genre to genre. I remember vividly my first exposure to Cradle Of Filth, I sat there and laughed because I simply couldn’t… Continue Reading →

Draghkar-The Endless Howling Abyss (Craneo Negro Records )

Earlier in the year I found myself plummeting the depths of the aggressive, ultra kvlt genre of War Metal. A pestilent reign of battering Death and Black Metal crossover that sounds like the two genres fighting to the death with… Continue Reading →

Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Recently I have found myself enamored by Bestial Black Metal or War Metal if you like. Raw untamed, relentless Black Metal with a heavy Death Metal influence taking inspiration from the beginnings of Extreme Metal with an excessive worship towards… Continue Reading →

Tetragrammacide – Primal Incinerators Of Moral Matrix (Iron Bonehead)

Having experienced a couple of this Indian bands two releases in 2015 I can honestly say that they come close to holding the black crown of anti-music as the band vomits a debut full length onto this festering world we… Continue Reading →

Kapala – Infest Cesspool (Dunkelheit)

Kapala (a Sanskrit word meaning skull I gather) are from India. Well this lot are, as I discovered two other bands sharing this name. The idea of fans of either of those other two bands accidentally downloading this amuses the… Continue Reading →
