Black Crown Initiate – Violent Portraits Of Doomed Escape (Century Media)

I’ve been following Black Crown Initiate with intense interest since demo-come-EP “Song Of The Crippled Bull” announced their brand of progressive death metal to the world in 2013. On the heels of said EP were two critically acclaimed albums, before… Continue Reading →

Imperial Triumphant – Alphaville (Century Media Records)

Delving into the bottom of the weekly cauldron of hate that contains items for review, this fourth album by New Yorkers, Imperial Triumphant (a three piece although you’d never guess it from the gargantuan sound they produce), stuck out like… Continue Reading →

Öxxö Xööx – Ÿ (Blood Music)

I could bang on about how this was an experimental release from the power behind Igorrr, how much of a headfcuk it is and why you need to be on happy drugs to listen to it. But the description I’m… Continue Reading →

Mass Worship – S/T (Century Media)

It’s that time of the year when the weather starts to get more menacing and all the ‘kvlt’ things which lurk in the darkness begin to rise up and the folks who handle press and distribution across the music world… Continue Reading →

One Hour Hell – Voidwalker (ViciSolum)

SweDeath is a fairly common approach to Death Metal these days. Highly influential, instantly recognizable and easy to blend in with other styles and approaches, this core style of Death Metal is one we are all widely familiar with, and… Continue Reading →

Buy Jupiter – Eclipse (Apathia Records)

Heavy, violent, technical … so begins this four track EP from French metallers Buy Jupiter. It may be trying to kill me with overpowering force, but it’s dynamic and I’m loving it. Djenty heavy tech death give way to a… Continue Reading →

Dronte – Quelque part entre la guerre et la lâcheté (Apathia)

Seven musicians create some sort of fusion. With a double bass and a saxophone in tow, the Beatles, Russian Circles, Napalm Death, Meshuggah and Rimsky-Korsakov are amongst many from many classical and modern pop and metal genres who get mentioned… Continue Reading →

Monuments – Phronesis (Century Media)

Cards on the table up front: this isn’t really my cup of tea, but I’ll save the lecture on the merits of a subgenre that essentially steals the best bits of Meshuggah and At The Gates for another time. Moving… Continue Reading →

Squidhead – Cult[ist] (S/R)

Miskatonic University graduates Squidhead are a three-piece who haul from Belgium and have nothing but high praise for the “Great Old One”. Spawned from the depths of Pierre “Pish” Minet, the project was initially a solo endeavour but it has… Continue Reading →

Stranglewire – The Dark Triad (Grindscene Records)

Belfast four-piece Stranglewire have only been around a year or so now, releasing their debut single “Narcissism” only last June and are back to bend your ears with this six track EP. They may have only been in existence a… Continue Reading →

Eryn Non Dae – Abandon Of The Self (Debemur Morti)

It sometimes feels like the journey into the globe’s metal extremities is a continuous descent down an ever blackening rabbit hole, constantly looking for new and darker corners, so little wonder that things can get a bit blinkered sometimes. It’s… Continue Reading →

Vanora – Momentum (Crime Records)

I’m not especially a fan of TesseracT or Meshuggah, who are quoted as a reference point for this band from Norway. I suppose it’s handy to have a reference point to attract potential interest, but what counts is the creativity… Continue Reading →
