Illkynja – Sæti Sálarinnar (I Want to Learn Icelandic Because This Band is Cool)

Illkynja – Sæti Sálarinnar (I Want to Learn Icelandic Because This Band is Cool)

  History in the making here, folks. I double-checked and, sure enough, there was only one other band from Iceland ever reviewed on this site, by a different writer, and it wasn’t any good so we’ll let that corpse lie in state. In fact, just burn it, for from the ashes rises Illkynja, who is […]

Cenotafio – Larvae Tedeum Teratos (Chile’s Funeral Shroud)

Cenotafio – Larvae Tedeum Teratos (Chile’s Funeral Shroud)

  Man what’s up in the Chilean scene of black stuff? It’s so disgusting in sound the more the submissions come in the more I’m sure there’s a real movement that should probably officially unite. Anyway, Cenotafio (such a great band name) come from there, and like a number of their brethren combine the most […]

Jupiterian – Protosapien (Nobody Will Ever Love You Funeral Sludge)

Jupiterian – Protosapien (Nobody Will Ever Love You Funeral Sludge)

  Some label heads just get it, you know? Like I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed by a promo from Transcending Obscurity, even though I haven’t reviewed everything he’s sent me. Either way, doesn’t matter, because here and now we’re talking Jupiterian’s latest musical expression of skin sloughing off a depressed corpse, Protosapien. After […]

Körgull the Exterminator – Sharpen Your Spikes (Listen to it LOUD Blackened Thrash)

Körgull the Exterminator – Sharpen Your Spikes (Listen to it LOUD Blackened Thrash)

  Wow good stuff right here. I mean here’s my old joke; review ends now. But I need to say a little more, I suppose, for this band who dared name itself after a Voivod album like no one would notice. Phew that’s some risky stuff right there! Because if you can’t bring the kind […]

Unholy Vampyric Slaughter Sect (The World Trapped in Vampyric Sway (Darker and Darker)) (Damn Dude Took My Parenthesis Joke)

Unholy Vampyric Slaughter Sect (The World Trapped in Vampyric Sway (Darker and Darker)) (Damn Dude Took My Parenthesis Joke)

  I changed the art on this using the original piece that makes up the finished cover, which for some reason was reduced to B/W and just a total mess, but hey, that’s what happens in basement black metal, or BBM, this being the US variety, or USBBM I guess we’ll say from now on. […]

Vacant Eyes – A Somber Preclusion of Being (Turgid Funeral Doom)

Vacant Eyes – A Somber Preclusion of Being (Turgid Funeral Doom)

  Oh I fooled you with the subtitle of this review lol. Hey, since Vacant Eyes were being wordy, I figured I’d be wordy, even though what our subtitle today implies is their wordiness is a defect. That’s just like a joke man. In fact, it’s all in good praise. A Somber Preclusion of Being […]

Tyranno – March of Death (Death Thrash, Yet…)

Tyranno – March of Death (Death Thrash, Yet…)

  Simplicity crowned. Old school enthroned, yet… Brazil’s Tyranno are a step back, or perhaps better to say a step rooted back, yet at the same time a step forwards. See there’s a lot of yet…in March of Death. I like the unexpected, though, and though at first I thought it may have been accidental, […]

Aleynmord – The Blinding Light (The Only Thing That Didn’t Suck This Week)

Aleynmord – The Blinding Light (The Only Thing That Didn’t Suck This Week)

  I had a dry spell this week. Took my time with this one and let it rotate in my head several times before writing anything. The primary reason was it was all I had left because this week sucked as far as promos went and I needed to be certain it was worth it. […]

Töxik Death – Sepulchral Demons (Umlaut is Okay Sometimes Thrash)

Töxik Death – Sepulchral Demons (Umlaut is Okay Sometimes Thrash)

  I’m waiting for the day I tire of blackened thrash and I’m like yeah okay heard this, heard that, yeah okay, I’m done. But we’re not there yet. The more bands toss little experiments in there, the less likely it’s going to be soon. In this case even a goddamned umlaut wasn’t enough to […]

Atramentus – Stygian (Reminder, Funeral Doom is Good)

Atramentus – Stygian (Reminder, Funeral Doom is Good)

  This came at the perfect time because I feel like I needed a reminder that funeral doom can be good. Well, maybe the reminder is more for you actually, cause like I knew that shit already. And this reminder (for you) is being brought to us today by Atramentus, who come from some unspecified […]
