Obscurial – Heretic (Puncture Wound Death Metal)

Obscurial – Heretic (Puncture Wound Death Metal)

  Alright, let’s start with this is probably the best metal band to come out of Malaysia, ever. I don’t want to hear about anyone else after this, and don’t you dare try to say “well, what about X,” because I’ve heard it all and I know already. Don’t try with me. As usual I […]

Coffin Curse (Darkly Negative Death Metal for You to Love)

  Yes, I love Chile! I want to live there! Basically every band submission I get from the country is golden. Send me a plane ticket Coffin Curse I want to hang out! Then we can celebrate your greatest release to date, The Continuous Nothing, which is rather the opposite. More like continuous awesome. In […]

Sarcasm – Mourninghoul (Swedish Existential Death Metal)

  This one shouldn’t have been this good. I mean, I’ve heard of Sarcasm, but I always though the name was a little, heh, sarcastic, and found it tough to step further than a few brief listens because, well, I wasn’t sure how serious they were. I curse myself for this grave error. Death metal, […]

Vulture – Sentinels (Retro Speed Thrash Metal Screaming from the Pulpit)

Vulture – Sentinels (Retro Speed Thrash Metal Screaming from the Pulpit)

  Great example here of a band evolving over the course of its career into something greater. Germany’s Vulture are still relatively new to the whole retro thrash (with some speed) scene, but in that short time they’ve learned how to hone their craft, constantly reworking and revising before release, becoming a general force in […]

Purulency – Transcendent Unveiling of Dimensions (More Than a Mere Demo Slimy Death Doom)

Purulency – Transcendent Unveiling of Dimensions (More Than a Mere Demo Slimy Death Doom)

  What a tangled mess of gross this one is. Get your cold, pasty hands off of me! I feel sick! I can’t think! Considering it’s rainy outside as I write this one, we’ll go with those bodily sensations. I want to feel revulsed. Tennessee’s Purulency, in this mere demo, take a different thematic approach […]

Diabolic Oath – Oracular Hexations (Unrestrained Bestial Black Metal)

Diabolic Oath – Oracular Hexations (Unrestrained Bestial Black Metal)

  Another smasher from Sentient Ruin Laboratories, let’s start there. From there let’s move to the band, Diabolic Oath, a three-piece from Portland, Oregon, that insists on making the listener hallucinate. Oracular Hexations leaves the brain and all thoughts within it disfigured. What at first appears a dark story woven by a degenerate becomes far […]

Her Menacing Pet – The Abyss Stares Back (Threateningly Melancholic Black Ambient)

Her Menacing Pet – The Abyss Stares Back (Threateningly Melancholic Black Ambient)

  Well, I did it, I judged a band by their name, but to be fair sometimes that equals review gold, like the perennial classic, and arguably worst band name in history, Clouds Taste Satanic. Her Menacing Pet, by contrast, sounded at first read like an overwrought, melodramatic foray into the goth by a tween […]

Nachts – Privileg (Pre or Perhaps Post-Suicidal Black Metal)

Nachts – Privileg (Pre or Perhaps Post-Suicidal Black Metal)

  What in the hell kind of horrid past did this guy have? I knew I was going to get more sadness out of this than I bargained for, but holy hell guy, what did life do to you?! I have a penchant for the more emotional veins of black metal, depending on how it’s […]

Caustic Phlegm – Putrefying Flesh (Putrid Intestinal Leak Death Metal)

Caustic Phlegm – Putrefying Flesh (Putrid Intestinal Leak Death Metal)

  There’s not much one needs to do to describe a band called Caustic Phlegm. They’re going to be caustic, and there’s going to be much phlegm expelled. The Xerox rot cover further exemplifies the sputum. With as short as I can be on descriptions, this release itself is short, being a reissued demo on […]

Scavenger – Beyond the Bells (Genre-Defining Female-Fronted Heavy Metal)

Scavenger – Beyond the Bells (Genre-Defining Female-Fronted Heavy Metal)

  I am so sick of hearing about goddamn Savage Master. Just stfu. They’re so goddamn overrated it makes me rage to the point of quitting existence. I’m not even sure how the fandom started, but what’s the point, because by now you’re probably wondering why I’m going on a tirade about a band not […]
