Kovaa Rasvaa – Tasaluvulla Tulevaisuuteen (Can’t Translate It Finnish Hardcore Punk)

  Man I’m pretty sure this is something Google Translate is not going to get properly, so I’m not even going to embarrass myself with a translation of either one, the band’s name, or two, the album title. Let’s just let Finnish punk filth words lie as they are. The same applies to this band’s […]

Ashen – Godless Oath (Methinks Good Australian Brutal Death Metal)

Ashen – Godless Oath (Methinks Good Australian Brutal Death Metal)

  A church burning in a more artistic way on the cover? Methinks me interested. Oh, and wait, these chaps are from Australia? Oooo, there’ve been some good things in death metal, methinks, coming out of that island of terrors for some time now, so it’s worth a listen for that fact alone. Australian death […]

Expunged – Into Never Shall (Better Than Its Title Death Metal)

Expunged – Into Never Shall (Better Than Its Title Death Metal)

  Still trying to figure out what in the hell this album title even means. Like you never shall do something (probably important) and like you’re going into that, I think? Christ don’t leave me guessing at this esoteric shit! WTF. Thankfully, I don’t have to think about much else when it comes to Expunged. […]

Hexorcist – Evil Reaping Death (Old School Florida Death Metal Lol)

Hexorcist – Evil Reaping Death (Old School Florida Death Metal Lol)

  Oh great, here we have some more old school death metal. Can you take any more? Can I? Well, if it’s stuff like Miami Florida-based Hexorcist, then the answer is actually yes, believe it or not. But what does this type of sound entail? I could drop names to make it clear, but for […]

Exil – Warning (An EXciting Hardcore Punk EXperience)

  Gawsh finally some more hardcore punk ass shit for me to review that got me pretty EXcited. Enough that I decided to EXpress myself by capitalizing two letters for some reason in some sick attempt to verify my own EXistence. Can you blame me? I was getting sick of all the trash I receive […]

Severed Boy – Tragic Encounters (Body Horror Death Doom)

Severed Boy – Tragic Encounters (Body Horror Death Doom)

  Well here’s a repulsive crusher I can utilize to summon various references to awful things of the human body. I figured with the dejected lump of grief flesh on the cover it would be so, but sometimes you don’t know. Cover art is only the beginning of the journey, never the end. Featuring two […]

Malgöth – Primordial Dawn (Psychotic Death Metal)

Malgöth – Primordial Dawn (Psychotic Death Metal)

  So I was in the mood for some absolutely bestial, war-torn, tortuous death metal today and wow here I get some psychotic stuff instead (that’s better). Canadian pummel lords Malgöth are one of those random Iron Bonehead releases that just came out of frikken nowhere. Though at least one of the members has an […]

Video Nasty – S/T (OMG Yes Please More Crossover Thrash)

Video Nasty – S/T (OMG Yes Please More Crossover Thrash)

  Oh my god… Oh god. OH GOD. OMG. HOLY SHIT OMG. Please more! Please! I mean I could get into some sex talk here about this one but Video Nasty is too good for that kind of low-brow criticism analogy. But seriously OMG holy shit give it to me. When I see anyone referencing […]

Black Ceremonial Kult – Crowned in Chaos (Murderous Blackened Death Metal)

Black Ceremonial Kult – Crowned in Chaos (Murderous Blackened Death Metal)

  Woah boy is this good. Yep, it will murder you. Yet another killer release to add to the “Chilean blackened freaks” category I’ve found much delight in in the past decade. What are the other bands I can recall? Who cares, because this is MFin Black Ceremonial Kult fools, so let’s stay focused on […]

Lucifer’s Hammer – The Trip (WTF Do You Want? Dark Fantasy Metal)

Lucifer’s Hammer – The Trip (WTF Do You Want? Dark Fantasy Metal)

  This is such a pleasant release. I’m not sure how else to begin except by saying WTF do you want? Take a band from Chile, which named themselves after a Larry Niven book (and were not the first to do it), toss in fantasy, sci-fi generalities, and old school heavy metal, and you get […]
