Funereality – Til Death (STDeath Metal)

Funereality – Til Death (STDeath Metal)

  Well isn’t this fun? I’m probably going to far with my chosen fake genre for today, but it’s just how I’m feeling, okay?! After the downfall of Pungent Stench and a more recent release of an album stuck in production hell for years that was a general blah, I really missed that filthy groove […]

Cadaver Shrine – Benighted Desecration (Blackened Death Doom of the Funereal Quality)

Cadaver Shrine – Benighted Desecration (Blackened Death Doom of the Funereal Quality)

  I sometimes wonder if Maurice de Jong, known primarily for his project Gnaw Their Tongues, is like superhuman or something. The number of notable bands he’s constructed, all of a dark and experimental style, would practically be a review in itself. Simply writing them all down would achieve the word count I prefer, but […]

Sonic Poison – Eruption (Apocalyptic Combat Grind)

Sonic Poison – Eruption (Apocalyptic Combat Grind)

  Lol I saw this called grindcore somewhere? Please, listen, restrict the usage of that tag to bands that are bad please. I mean come on this is clearly combat grind. I feel bad for those out there dealing such nonsense, but even worse for myself because I have to waste time pulling out a […]

Dryad – The Abyssal Plain (Occult Crossover Crust)

Dryad – The Abyssal Plain (Occult Crossover Crust)

  I wasn’t sure what I was getting into with this one. The cover has this primitive, war or occult death metal style, but wait is that supposed to be the Flying Spaghetti Monster or something? Like WTF? Where is this leading me?! Still anyone cool enough to name their band Dryad must have something […]

Nothingness – Supraliminal (Melty Death Metal)

Nothingness – Supraliminal (Melty Death Metal)

  I consider this part of the mystery of the label Everlasting Spew Records. Like, why don’t I seem to hear more about shit like this? Dude’s got the name down, and the roster he carries, daing. Case in point, the latest full-length form Minnesota puke lords Nothingness, Supraliminal, which, as far as a cursory […]

The Gauntlet – Dark Steel and Fire (You’d Probably Call This Diabolic Blackened Rock)

\ \ \ \ \ \

The Gauntlet – Dark Steel and Fire (You’d Probably Call This Diabolic Blackened Rock)

  We’ve got a real textbook mishmashing of diabolic generalities about this one amongst lesser critics, as expected. “Ominous.” “Haunting.” “Malevolent.” “Satanic party.” Wait, WTF. Satanic party? Do you people even proofread what the hell you’re writing? This is the usual garbage spewed out to describe something like this, which in essence is primitive blackened […]

Nocturnal Departure – Clandestine Theurgy (Corrupted Black Metal)

Nocturnal Departure – Clandestine Theurgy (Corrupted Black Metal)

  This one surprised me. In many ways it features forms that are quite standard to black metal as a whole, specifically second-wave, yet there are variations that, though they’d at first seem only slightly atypical, are instead strangely unique. Canada’s Nocturnal Departure relies heavily on the old school, but the new school they’re peddling […]

Congealed Putrescence – Within the Ceaseless Murk (Swampy Death Metal)

Congealed Putrescence – Within the Ceaseless Murk (Swampy Death Metal)

  Here’s another one of these releases, but, hey, I’ll take it. I was going to call it murky death metal, which I did the other day for another release, and which this certainly is, I mean look at the EP’s title! But, since these scumbags are from New Orleans I figured swampy would be […]

Gosudar / Malignant Altar – Split (Murky Death Metal)

Gosudar / Malignant Altar – Split (Murky Death Metal)

  I basically loathe splits. Good stuff, sometimes, but it’s like just save those tracks for a separate release bros. It’s only a thing when bands have B-list drool and they’re like “how can we release this?” “Oh, yeah, a split!” And, in most cases, you don’t mind listening to it, but will you remember […]

Qrixkuor – Zoetrope (Occult Death Metal for Chaotic Connoisseurs)

Qrixkuor – Zoetrope (Occult Death Metal for Chaotic Connoisseurs)

  I see one long track as an album or EP and I’m like yeah this shit’s going to have something to say. And yes, Qrixkuor is such a band and this is such an album, or rather EP. More of an experience perhaps, or just a long ass song even, Zoetrope is a spinning […]
