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 →

Pale King – Monolith of the Malign (Soulseller Records)

Look, I’m not going to waste your time – if you read no further than this, reckon on these words: This album is great. I’m a sucker for angular, weird death metal. Now don’t get me wrong – I can… Continue Reading →

Henry Kane – Den Forstorda Manniskans Rika (Transcending Obscurity)

I feel like a bit ignorant here, but I have no idea who Henry Kane is. I assume it’s a reference to something (maybe the graphic novel?), but it’s not one I’m au fait with. If any reader has an… Continue Reading →

Vholdghast – Låt oss förbrinna (Vicisolum)

Despite jamming together for over ten years, Vholdghast have only just got around to showcasing their sound on record, which is fair enough when you consider how many projects this four piece juggle between them (six for vocalist Jonny alone)…. Continue Reading →

Convulse – Evil Prevails (Svart)

Convulse are a band with quite the history. They started out as an 80s speed metal band under the moniker S.D.S., before changing their name to Convulse, releasing arguably one of the best known Finnish death metal albums from the… Continue Reading →
