Den Saakaldte: Faen i Helvete

Den Saakaldte: Faen i Helvete

Do you guys like oatmeal? Because this review is oatmeal based. Oatmeal is great because of all the varieties of food that it can be mixed with such as berries, peanut butter, yogurt, jelly, cinnamon, protein powders, etc,.. Black metal is oatmeal and this bowl has been prepared by Den Saakaldte with their album, Faen […]

Lions of Tsavo: Traverser

Lions of Tsavo: Traverser

When using the Google machine to research these lads, the Wikipedia page for the actual lions of Tsavo appears. The story is rather brutal and suits the music well. Back in the day when they were building a railroad over the Tsavo River in Kenya, the British led by Lt. Col. John Henry Patterson, two […]

Squash Bowels/Parricide: Old Grindfathers and Their Grind

Squash Bowels/Parricide: Old Grindfathers and Their Grind

Ahhh, grind, probably the one genre in metal that refuses to go anywhere, it’s completely content.  You see the same thing with older veins of hardcore.  If you appreciate it for what it is, then hey, why not?  Otherwise ‘not’ is your only option.  Squash Bowels is a goregrind band from out of Poland, which […]

Verdant: Sincerity

God the artwork on this thing…  Now and then you come across an album where the artwork, or in this case photography, basically does justice to the actual sound therein.  Every song on this feels like what you see, it even sounds like it in its best moments, like the inside of some old mausoleum […]

Thantifaxath: Sacred White Noise

*Insert catchy, hook here to draw in all the interested readers and make this paragraph easier to begin” Thantifaxath are a trio straight outta’ Toronto, Canada who wear long hooded robes on stage to remain anonymous. So far, they have only released an E.P. and this album, Sacred White Noise, will be released April 15th […]

Desdinova: Defying Gravity

Well, this was…a bummer…a bummer’s bummer.  We’ve had a lot of bands over the years here telling us what their image is all about, what it all means to them.  Often it’s pretty accurate, in spite of the staleness of the tunes to be found.  Desdinova is pretty clear they’re a thrash band from their […]

Decomposed: Devouring

Swedish death metal has had its score of greats, and we need not mention any of them here because it would just be pretentious.  Probably yawnsome, too, and we keep it underground, so underground.  Decomposed started out with a huge leap of faith, naming themselves with such an obvious term, one already taken by at […]

Prostitute Disfigurement: From Crotch to Crown

Prostitute Disfigurement: From Crotch to Crown

Yay!!! Another cool death metal release that breaks new territory with such themes as rape, serial killing, and murder.  Prostitute Disfigurement hails from the Netherlands, and granted we don’t know how quickly things change over there, but given the great strides death metal has made lately these guys no longer have an excuse to sound […]

Wild Throne: Blood Maker

Wild Throne: Blood Maker

Yeah, sometimes bands can blow you the feck away.  Like totally.  Like you look behind you and where you expect to at least see limbs there’s barely a spray of blood and miniscule chunks.  If there are chunks they’re practically the same splatter as the rest of it.  Blood Maker comes via way of Brutal Panda […]

Zozobra: Savage Masters

Zozobra: Savage Masters

The Zozobra (Old Man Gloom) is an enormous effigy that’s built  and burnt every fall in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  People use the Zozobra as symbol of ridding themselves of their gloom for the coming winter, by lighting it all on fire but essentially going on to repeat the exact same mistakes they were trying […]
