Rope Sect – The Great Flood (Iron Bonehead)

Hear ye, hear ye! Rope Sect are about to unleash The Great Flood upon the Earth! Mark your calendars, lovers of all things musically dark and underground, because the twelfth of August will prove to be one of the more… Continue Reading →

Gruppe Planet – Travel to Uncertain Grounds (Lifeforce Records)

The name of the band rather gives away the fact that they’re German. Gruppe Planet is an electronically-inclined instrumental band. I soon became hypnotised by the calm and dreamy ambience of the opening title track. There’s a kind of post… Continue Reading →

Stillbirth – Revive The Throne (Unique Leader)

I could not abide the Brutal Death scene at one point, I think in some respects I just took things too seriously. I mean I couldn’t stand the influence that Deathcore was having and I also had very little time… Continue Reading →

Martyr – Fists Of Iron (Gates of Hell)

I have been waiting for this for a while, and just as I start to write the tape arrives from the band themselves with the original artwork. The release under review here from Gates of Hell Records has a different,… Continue Reading →

Primal Fear – Metal Commando (Nuclear Blast)

For 22 years Primal Fear have been one of the driving forces in Euro Power Metal, standing alongside fellow countrymen Rage, Accept, Helloween, Blind Guardian etc… Basically, they’re one of a long list of bands who know how to blend… Continue Reading →

Temple Of Dread – World Sacrifice (Testimony Records)

Yet another fine death metal release on the Testimony roster, this time by Germany’s Temple Of Dread with their second album ‘World Sacrifice’. The band’s debut ‘Blood Craving Mantras’ was no slouch either from 2019, indeed I’d say both albums… Continue Reading →

Evil Warriors – Schattenbringer (Into Endless Chaos Records)

Anyone into their metal will tell you immediately that this German black metal act’s band name is from a Possessed song from their debut album ‘Seven Churches’ whether intentional or not, but therein lies the only similarity to the US… Continue Reading →

Eremit – Desert of Ghouls (Transcending Obscurity)

I don’t know much about Eremit, save for the fact that they are from Germany, they are on the excellent Transcending Obscurity record label, and that their logo features a twist on the classic Conan the Barbarian sword graphic. This… 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 →

MANTAR – Grungetown Hooligans II (Brutal Panda)

With every gig, tour, festival and major release postponed/cancelled for 2020, musicians the world over are suddenly finding themselves with a lot of spare time on their hands – so what better time to give something a little different a… Continue Reading →

Dauþuz – Grubenfall 1727 (Amor Fati Productions)

After three full length albums since their 2016 inception, this German duo appear to be taking a breather by only releasing an EP this year. Don’t be fooled though, the three tracks here clock in at nearly 35 minutes. Thematically, Dauþuz… Continue Reading →

Varus – A New Dawn (S/R)

Varus released their debut back in 2014 but aside from re-recording a track in the meantime not a lot has been heard from them since. But with a bit of a line-up shuffle and a new-found energy, this Symphonic Folk… Continue Reading →
