Fleshvessel – Bile Of Man Reborn (I, Voidhanger Records)

This release has already seen the light of day by the band in January of this year as a digital release but has been picked up by the Italian label for a limited CD run as far as I know…. Continue Reading →

Smiling Assassin – Plight Of The Millennial (Warren Records)

Keeping the flame of British hardcore punk alive, Yorkshire’s Smiling Assassin have virtually blasted out of the starting blocks. Having only formed in 2019, one might say they’ve been born in troublesome times so are well placed to spew forth… Continue Reading →

Mordred – Volition (Independent)

I’m actually surprised I was never more of a Mordred fan in my youth. It probably has more to do with only ever seeing their albums once or twice in ZA and never getting a chance to actively listening to… Continue Reading →

Necrochaos – Crawling Through Cadavers (Godz Ov War)

Originally released in October 2019 this worthy demo has been quickly picked up by the Polish label for a physical release. At the helm of this project is multi-instrumentalist Eugene Kohl from Germany who has many other projects under his… Continue Reading →

Goat Monsoon – Alpha Kings (S/R)

Goat Monsoon have been kicking about since 2012 and have created enough interest to earn themselves a slot at Bloodstock 2019. They’ve also done gigs with underground riff merchants Slabdragger and British legends, Orange Goblin. Their recorded output is pretty… Continue Reading →

Summon – Helios (Godz ov War)

Portuguese band Summon promise us “unrivalled barbarism, wickedness and ferocity” with this EP. This is the third work from the Portuguese death-black metal band, following another EP in 2017, and an album “Parazv Il Zillitv” in 2018. Deep echoing sounds,… Continue Reading →

Neumatic Parlo – All Purpose Slicer (Unique Records)

Looking at the name of band and EP title here had me hoping for some nice vicious grindcore but the German group are alas far from that. What they play is described as “modern Psychedelic, Garage, and Alternativ Rock” and… Continue Reading →

Āter – Vullighied (Sliptrick Records)

One for the specialist here: the lyrics of this EP from a very old Belgian black metal band Āter are written in a thousand-year old dialect. When I received this work, it came with a lucid explanation of the tracks,… Continue Reading →

Obnoxious Youth – Mouths Sewn Shut (Svart)

Like an Ewok drowned in a honeypot this E.P is short and sweet. If you liked American crossover, Britcore and Scandi punk back in the 80’s you are gonna love Obnoxious Youth.  This sounds like it should have featured on… Continue Reading →

Vuur & Zijde / Impavida self-titled split (Prophecy Productions)

Word has it that grim epicness meets transcendental aural darkness. What this means is that this is a split from Vuur & Zijde from the Netherlands, and the German-US combo Impavada. So first we have Vuur & Zijde, I’d heard… Continue Reading →

Drowning Deep – Human Decay (S/R)

Hannover, Germany is famous for a few things. One being the world famous vomitorium known as the Octoberfest, where, German culture is distilled into key components including steins of bastard strength pilsner, bratwurst, scantily clad students dressed in lederhosen serving… Continue Reading →

Illum Adora – Infernum et Necromantium (Folter Records)

Following up last year’s debut album …Of Serpentine Forces, German occultists Illum Adora reconvene under the sign of the Baphomet once more with this 5 track EP release. This is second wave era black metal with a solid stench of… Continue Reading →
