Alfahanne – Atomvinter (Indie Recordings)

Alfahanne are an anomaly. When the Swedes offered up their debut “Alfapokalyps” in 2014 interest was piqued due to the members being ex members of well respected black metal bands and the plethora of cult figures they brought in as… Continue Reading →

Skøv – Skøv (S/R)

Let me tell you what I know about this band. Skøv are a black punk metal band from Poland, and formed in 2017. I was told beforehand that they sound like the Norwegian band Kverletak. Add rock n roll to… Continue Reading →

Whiskey Ritual – Black Metal Ultras (Folter Records)

Filthy, raw, drug & alcohol obsessed black metal with added Satan & hookers….. sounds fucking great doesn’t it…. and guess what, it is! These Italian animals are coming in your ears with this, their fourth album and the follow up… Continue Reading →

NAG – Nagged To Death (Fysisk Format)

Can’t complain, this is the right way to get ‘nagged to death’ especially when the means of doing so is by delivering us a nice slab of vinyl. It was a timely arrival too as I have been reading A… Continue Reading →

Slayer, Anthrax, Kvelertak – Leeds Academy 28/11/15

Possibly the most hotly anticipated thrash bill of the year with half of the big four playing on one bill this was a night of thrash remembrance for some and an initiation ceremony for the new fans, and some completed… Continue Reading →

Man The Machetes – Av Nag (Indie Recordings)

For a large proportion of fans, Man The Machetes are a band that require deep consideration before you attempt to tackle their music. Q: Do you mind if there’s not a jot of the Queen’s English in your lyrics? Q:… Continue Reading →

Alfahanne – Blod Eld Alfa (Dark Essence)

This rag-tag-bag of Swedes pretty much came out of nowhere delivering their storming first album ‘Alfapokalypse’ onto the scene and giving it a real kick up the arse in the process back in early 2014. It’s an album that still… Continue Reading →

Faulnis – Snuff // Hiroshima (Cold Dimensions)

I absolutely loved the last album by these putrefying Germans. It’s been quite a while since ‘Gehirn zwischen Wahn und Sinn’ came out way back in 2009 and I was keen to find out what the band were like after… Continue Reading →

Inteview – Becky Cloonan

It’s a funny thing about comics, graphic novels, whatever you want to call them, but even if you don’t read them I’ll bet at least one of your friends does. Forever off mainstream until Hollywood (or HBO) comes calling once… Continue Reading →

Djevel – Besatt Av Maane Og Natt (Aftermath Music)

Translating this Norwegian band and their album title into Devil – Possessed By The Moon And Night, this act equates to some form of black metal super group comprising members from Nettlecarrier, Koldbrann and Kvelertak, and boasting one Dirge Rep… Continue Reading →

Hagl – In The Heart (Casus Belli Musica)

The words ‘pagan’ and ‘metal’ in close proximity conjure up certain preconceptions in most metal minds. Let’s be honest, those preconceptions are not always positive and much of that is self-inflicted by bands whose musical hopes and dreams should probably… Continue Reading →

Blodig Alvor – Mørkets Frembrudd (Indie Recordings)

Since Kvelertak’s global success with their debut album, the Norwegian punk scene has become hot property and over the next couple of months we can expect to be inundated with everything from the groovy to the gritty to the downright… Continue Reading →
