Straight Hate – Black Sheep Parade (Deformeathing Productions)

This Polish grind act’s second album has been out since September 2019 but has only just hit Ave Noctum nearly a year later which is a shame because it is a truly gargantuan grindcore release. Since then the band has… Continue Reading →

Terminal Nation – Holocene Extinction (20 Buck Spin)

“We’re just two little girls from Little Rock.  We lived on the wrong side of the tracks” Jane Russel and Marilyn Monroe sang wonderfully in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”.  I gotta say that was the first thing that sprang to mind when I read… 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 →

Foetal Juice – Gluttony (Gore House Productions)

Here lies a salutary lesson and one I have heeded. Do not judge a book by its cover…ever…unless it’s a map of course but then is that a book? Who knows? And would you please get the fuck on with… Continue Reading →

Violent Hammer – Riders of the Wasteland (Hells Headbangers)

These Finns have been around since 2006 and deal in a primal mix of black, death and grindcore.  Every so often I listen to a band and find its extremity strangely relaxing and soporific. Violent Hammer are one such band…. Continue Reading →

Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Transcending Obscurity)

I reviewed Henry Kane’s (actually, the grind alias of Death Metal royalty Jonny Petersson) last album for this very publication, giving it a 7/10, though with more repeated listens, I should have awarded it an 8, as several of the… Continue Reading →

WVRM – Colony Collapse (Prosthetic Records)

Hailing from Greenville, South Carolina, Grindcore four-piece WVRM, have been around for a while now, birthing a couple of split albums and a two full length efforts which, whilst not straying too far from the Grindcore playbook, offered enough distinguishable… Continue Reading →

Wound Collector – Depravity (Rotten To The Core)

These Belgians have a bit of brass, they really do, a saxophone at any rate. This will be your overriding factor when it comes to any enjoyment you will derive from this listening experience too. As we have learned metal… Continue Reading →

Workshed – Workshed (Rise Above)

After nearly a quarter of a century away, two former Cathedral members have returned with Workshed. Namely, Mark Wharton and Adam Lehan, whom are well respected for their doom heritage, and Workshed simply personifies their importance and influence within the… Continue Reading →

Sarinvomit / Eggs of Gomorrh – Encomium of Depraved Instincts (Krucyator Productions)

Splits are a great way to taste bands. Like a double dipper – you get two flavours of sherbet – just the right amount of each . No time to get bored. Splits have long been the medium for punks,… Continue Reading →

Tronos – Celestial Mechanics (Century Media)

Well, the premise of this album seemed too good to pass up. I’m a fan of Shane Embury – though trying to keep up with his dizzying array of bands can be difficult. This is his latest collaboration, a star-studded… Continue Reading →

Besta – Eterno Rancor (Lifeforce Records)

Portuguese grinders Besta have a plethora of releases each out delivering an onslaught of pure grindcore mayhem and this latest album continues that violent attitude to song writing with 16 songs of incendiary ferociousness that has hints of modern era… Continue Reading →
