Australasia: Sin4tr4

Sometimes artwork doesn’t tell you much of anything about a release.  See, that’s the problem we have here.  You see something that follows a typical style, say to yourself “aw man some sort of crappy deathcore”, you put it in, actually good, hmm looks like we were wrong…  Case in point right here, because the […]

Fausten: S/T

See those worms on the cover?  They’re symbolic.  They’re going to dig into your body cavity and intertwine with your intestines, wrapping their way up your veins and nerves until they slowly replace your brain and leave only a trembling mass of fetid earth-dwellers in its place.  That was our attempt at providing a cool […]

Nothingness: No Happy Ending

Picked this one up, said, “yeah, deathcore/metalcore or some crap, we’ll wait on it”.  Damn these stereotypes and biases, they plague our minds!  Someone out there save us, free our mind from these genre tags that bind us!  Well, hey, can’t blame us entirely, the artwork pretty much said what it needed to, and it […]

John 3:16: Visions of the Hereafter

Now and then we get good experimental, every now and then.  Not so much with noise, because it’s deceptive in how people approach it and everyone just buys a million effects pedals, but with experimental yes, most of the time people have a better grasp of “music” since you normally actually have to play something […]

The Sun Through a Telescope: I Die Smiling

In recent years, drone doom, a genre spawned from the likes of Black Sabbath, Swans, and Melvins have swept into the scene with its colossal reverb and indiscernible screaming. Bands such as Khanate, Boris, and most iconically, Sunn O))), have spearheaded this movement becoming a prominent subgenre of metal. Unfortunately, the characteristics of drone doom […]

The Night God Screamed

When a movie comes along with a title as awesome as The Night God Screamed it’s hard not to instantly start thinking what it could be about. What kind of monstrosity could be so evil that the big G himself would let out a sissy little yelp of terror? What ungodly act of brutal savagery could […]

Pestilence: Obsideo

All too often, metal songwriters fail to understand nuance and dynamic. One of the reasons it becomes difficult to navigate the waters of the extreme is that, frequently, and for whatever reason, the people creating this kind of material are of the opinion that if you constantly deluge your audience with “br00tz” they’ll be so […]

Wold: Badb

It’s shocking, revolting, putrefying to the soul how bad this is. Typically, when a band releases something on limited cassette, usually for the hell of it, it’s best to let it stay limited and in the hands of friends, because they’re practically the only people who are going to get anything out of it, or […]

Occultist: Death Sigils

The 2012 demo, Hell By Our Hands, introduced a new force in the blackened crust scene. Occultist produced tracks of such extremity and intensity that you simply could not ignore them. The band first came to be when Leland Hoth (ex-Battlemaster) and Jim Reed (also of Thurifer) got in touch. Soon Nathaniel Acker also came […]

Common Enemy: As the World Burns

It’s amazing bands like this still exist, it really is.  It makes some of us realize how old we really are, that dreadful feeling of “been there done that” about a million times, the “heard it all” sensation, the “back in my day” sensation, also the “why does this still go on and when will […]
