Crowhurst – S/T

Crowhurst – S/T

Sometimes you look at something and you know it can’t be anything but mind-bending.  You know after listening you’re not going to be the same person, you’re going to be something else and probably won’t remember anything that came prior.  Who am I?  How did I get here?  You move your eyes around the immediate […]

Caldera – Centralia EP

Caldera – Centralia EP

Out of any musical genres out there, doom metal bands always seem to get it right when it comes to the naming process.  It’s not like that absolute glut of stupidity during the nineties where everything was tagged as “alternative” even though there were like fifty different types of music.  But they all had this […]

Generichrist – Taste of Death

We just love being confused, it’s good for our blood.  In fact, you know, write this down, if something’s hard to pin down with a genre and you feel like a hack when you pull out some band comparisons because you completely lack the writing skills to explain it otherwise, it’s going to be good. […]

The Kill – Kill Them…All

\ \ \ \ \

The Kill – Kill Them…All

Typically, especially over the past five years, any time we’ve received a promo from a band that labels itself “grindcore”, it’s practically already set to become kindling, a Goodwill donation that sits there for years, or something just to destroy and take one’s anger out on in a time of need.  Seriously, rule of thumb, […]

Necro Deathmort – EP2

Necro Deathmort – EP2

We’re bandnamecist around here, completely coolnamesupremacist.  Cool name power.  Please understand, we were raised this way, or rather, we raised ourselves in such a way that we expect the best, not the better-than-most, the best.  And that’s what our readers expect.  Necro Deathmort is a name we’ve actually heard before, but honestly we ignored it […]

Twist Ending – Demo 2014

Twist Ending – Demo 2014

Alright, enough of this popularity game.  We shouldn’t even need to discuss a band’s level of fame in the first place, nor defend our reasons for reviewing something of “the above”.  So we are below, so we shall stay, most of the time.  What better way than music that incorporates practically everything one could desire […]

Forgotten Tomb – Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love

Forgotten Tomb – Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love

If there’s one hard sell in black metal, it’s the kind further delineated through words like ‘suicidal’, ‘hateful’ (and or ‘misanthropic’), or perhaps ‘depressing’.  DSBM is usually an instant soul killer for most, no matter the level of anti-depressants in your blood.  You could be filled with months of mood-numbing psychotropics and it wouldn’t make […]

GosT – Behemoth

GosT – Behemoth

This is getting close to GosT overload for this year, Christ.  If you haven’t noticed, we’ve been GosT fanatics for several months, after his compatriot Perturbator dropped a line about him.   So first we checked out his S/T last year, and then we moved on to an awesome interview with the skull-headed, dark synthwave […]

Der Blutharsch/Fuckhead/Josef Dvorak – Sous l’Arbre de Science

Der Blutharsch/Fuckhead/Josef Dvorak – Sous l’Arbre de Science

Here’s a glut of words that would fill up our article title to the point of causing a system error, most likely.  That sounds pretty experimental, though, so we’ll stick with it.  Sous l’Arbre de Science is actually a collaboration of three acts in one and man oh man does it leave you wanting.  Not […]

DRÅP – En Naturlig Död

\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \

DRÅP – En Naturlig Död

Let’s get crusty, let’s get musty.  People often ridicule crusts for their absolute disregard for bodily hygiene.  It’s the most virulent smelling movement in music, something that’s always pushed itself so far away from the mainstream it’s often looked at with derision and the holding of one’s nose, even when you’re just looking at pictures […]
