Hades (Keyboard Rager Hack-and-Slash Game)

  Now this game is one that came straight out of the deepest pit of hell, or I mean Hades. The type that will make you mash your keyboard into a pile of broken fragments; from the start a straight up rager. The basic goal is you, as the son of Hades, are trying to […]

Eternal Champion – Ravening Iron (SEGA! Epic Heavy Metal)

  You guys been like playing that Sega Genesis Nintendo stuff man? To be honest when someone dares name themselves after a totally overrated 16-bit fighting game you can’t expect much. SEGA (you scream)! Maybe it’s just coincidence though, I don’t know, actually it is. The name Eternal Champion comes from some fantasy literature stuff, […]

Koko-Di Koko-Da (Groundhog Day Murder Grief Film by Johannes Nyholm)

  When The Babadook exploded in 2014, along came the usual flurry of thinkpieces praising an intelligent horror movie that dealt with the thorny topic of grief. Although labeling this a new development ignores the long history that horror has with bereavement, the recent trend of “elevated horror” films that explicitly address grief is undeniable. […]

Revolting – The Shadow at the World’s End (Acceptable Swedish Death Metal)

  So I wasn’t a big fan of this at first. In fact I wasn’t a fan at all. I pretty much hated it, but then I realized it wasn’t the fault of Revolting, I had just heard too much typical death metal going through the promos and I forgot, lol, this is the Swedish […]

Omegavortex – Black Abomination Spawn (Exactly Like Their Moniker Blackened Death Metal)

  Lol these guys. I see any reference to voids, chasms, and generally anything that suggests a gaping pit of despair and disorder, I know it’s going to be killer. This goes for any genre but blackened death metal? Yeah, works there for sure. It’s almost a requirement. Germany’s Omegavortex are the true curtain to […]

Star Renegades (Massively Freaking Difficult Space Rebel JRPG)

Star Renegades (Massively Freaking Difficult Space Rebel JRPG)

  A debate raged in my head as to whether I should review this one. Dark enough? Misanthropic enough? Well there’s some empire in space taking over stuff and subjugating rebels and all that, so within such strife there’s inevitably suffering. We’ll go with it, primarily because I love Raw Fury and they’ve been just […]

Décembre Noir – The Renaissance of Hope (Uxoricide With Feeling Melodic Doom)

  Yeah check it out, I can use big words you just had to look up. I had nothing else to go on and the cover spoke to me. Pheewww shit is this good. I normally avoid bands with this max exposure and fan power, but Décembre Noir are too good to pass up and […]

Apochryphal Revelation –  Primeval Devilish Wisdom (Crayola Cover Occult Black Metal)

Apochryphal Revelation – Primeval Devilish Wisdom (Crayola Cover Occult Black Metal)

  Man we got some Crayola (trademark not approved) shit going on up in here with this killing the Jesus cover, which only adds another layer of coolness to this slab of occult trash. Apochryphal Revelation have lived in obscurity for awhile and it’s been three years since they peeked from out of the dark […]

Glacier – The Passing of Time (The Power Metal Crown Has Passed)

Glacier – The Passing of Time (The Power Metal Crown Has Passed)

  These dudes are so carefree, and it’s such a welcome, chill breath upon the skin. I knew they were chill when I checked out the band photo. Band photos can tell you pretty much 90% about a band and its music. So here we have these dudes just standing there, almost no emotion, against […]

Occult Burial – Burning Eerie Lore (Sacrificing Saplings Occult Thrash)

Occult Burial – Burning Eerie Lore (Sacrificing Saplings Occult Thrash)

  I knew this would be good when I saw the band photo with three dudes sacrificing a with torches, or it may have been a sapling, and one is looking all spooky while in the process of growing balder and totally doesn’t give a shit if you notice. Thrash has proven one of the […]
