Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Transcending Obscurity)

I reviewed Henry Kane’s (actually, the grind alias of Death Metal royalty Jonny Petersson) last album for this very publication, giving it a 7/10, though with more repeated listens, I should have awarded it an 8, as several of the… Continue Reading →

Reek – Death Is Something There Between (Testimony Records)

There seems to be quite a few Death n Roll releases recently springing from combinations of bands. Odd, must be something in the water 27 years after Entombed released the Blueprint “Wolverine Blues”. Hot on the leather bound heels of… Continue Reading →

Wombbath – Choirs Of The Fallen (SoulSeller Records)

Right, no fannying about…. Wombbath are the nuts. What do you need to know? Well, despite having released their first demo in 1992, the band originally only recorded one album the classic  “Internal Caustic Torments” in 1993 before sadly chucking… Continue Reading →

Berzerker Legion – Obliterate The Weak (Listenable Records)

I thought I’d give a punt out to Berzerker Legion, which as it turns out is a bit of a death metal “supergroup” of sorts. Starring Fred Isaksson (Dark Funeral) – Bass, Tomas Elofsson (Hypocrisy – live) on guitars with… Continue Reading →

Cropsy Maniac – Carnage (HPGD)

I could sum this release up in a short paragraph…. “like splatter movies?……  like death/grind?……. like death/grind that’s all about splatter movies? If the answer’s yes, then stop reading this now and buy this EP!” But then the editor would… Continue Reading →

Ribspreader – Crawl and Slither (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

This is the eighth – yes, eighth full length release for Ribspreader since 2004. When you add on the fact that this old-school Swedish death metal band is just one of twenty one bands that main man Rogga Johansson is… Continue Reading →

Gods Forsaken – Smells Of Death (Soulseller Records)

A couple of years back I slotted Gods Forsaken’s debut album “In A Pitch Black Grave” into my end of year top 20. It was a classic claw-hammer to the skull of a Swedish death metal album. Pure, undiluted and… Continue Reading →

Nattravnen – Kult Of The Raven (Transcending Obscurity Records)

When I was a young(ish) lad in the mid-eighties I used to love King Diamond. I was a big fan, not so much of the marmite vocals but of the way each album told an original horror story from beginning… Continue Reading →

Wombbath – The Great Desolation (Soulseller Records)

If you didn’t know, and as the band is often criminally overlooked there’s a good chance you didn’t, Wombbath have been producing some of the gnarliest Swedish death metal since 1992 however, this here album is only the band’s third… Continue Reading →

Skineater – Cerebral Relics (Slaughterhouse Records)

I wasn’t familiar with this Swedish DM band before receiving this EP (the follow up release to their 2013 debut album “Dermal Harvest”) but a quick bit of research made them sound like a pretty tasty prospect being formed of… Continue Reading →

Ursinne – Swim With The Leviathan (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Blimey, another belter from Transcending Obscurity Records here with the debut album from Ursinne. Right, for starters what’s an “Ursinne” and what’s this band all about? Well for starters “Ursinne” is a Swedish word for “rage” and the band is… Continue Reading →

Gods Forsaken – In a Pitch Black Grave (SoulSeller Records)

Old School Swedish Death Metal. If you’re short on time, you could just read those first five words and have a pretty accurate view of what this album is like. That guitar sound is now so ubiquitous that it usually… Continue Reading →
