Ulvdalir – Hunger for the Cursed Knowledge (Ingrian Black Metal Duh)

Ulvdalir – Hunger for the Cursed Knowledge (Ingrian Black Metal Duh)

  Did you even, like, know what “Ingrian Black Metal” was before this review? I know I didn’t, lol. I had heard something of the region of Ingria, but I didn’t realize there was this thing with black metal there until I heard Ulvdalir. I won’t even get into the complex ethnic background of it […]

Raider – Guardian of Fire (Forged in a Meek Spark Thrash)

Raider – Guardian of Fire (Forged in a Meek Spark Thrash)

  I like sword guy. I thought sword guy would bring me some thrash fire. But he brings more of a spark that could, some day, ignite into bigger flames of thrash. That requires hands willing to work for it, however, and the work needs to be personal. It is necessary to grind the thrash […]

Rosy Finch – Scarlet (Real Pain Sludge Metal)

Rosy Finch – Scarlet (Real Pain Sludge Metal)

  I had my doubts about this one at first. I saw the band drop references to 90s grunge acts I’d rather forget, except in a nightmare, and anyone running that kind of line of defense is usually eliminated in a few riffs. Don’t show your age too much, you know? But Rosy Finch are […]

Muscipula – Little Chasm of Horrors (Plant Metal)

Muscipula – Little Chasm of Horrors (Plant Metal)

  Man what a slay this is. There’s almost nothing about these filth clowns, Muscipula, anywhere on the Internets. That’s cool, because I guess it makes it more like dark web metal or something. Actually in this case plant metal. To further that theory the band names themselves off of an obsession over Venus flytraps […]

SWAN MEAT – FLESH WORLD (MMO and Anime Music But Cool)

SWAN MEAT – FLESH WORLD (MMO and Anime Music But Cool)

  Man that’s a great cover. It’s like totally anime and MMO or something, but the good stuff only. So that’s one-line intro, or two-line rather, for today because combining anime and MMO music into something worthy of transcending background music is exactly what FLESH WORLD is about. SWAN MEAT I’ve known for some years […]

Necrobode – Sob o Feitiço do Necrobode (WARsome Metal)

Necrobode – Sob o Feitiço do Necrobode (WARsome Metal)

  I’m either going through a phase or this type metal is just always good. I know you all call it “war metal” but since it’s so awesome I like to call it “warsome metal.” The term will never stick, but I can claim it as my own. So Necrobode I’ve heard, and they’ve screamed […]

On Thorns I Lay – Threnos (Melodideathdoom Lol I’m a Writer)

  I’m starting to realize Lifeforce Records has this “thing” with melodic metal bands who absolutely kill in the production and presentation. Sometimes setting a niche for yourself is good, except with pornogrind. Just let those fools have their netlabels and their weird community of drum machine, family-in-the-audience shows. So back to melodic metal, in […]

SUUM – Cryptomass (Not Total Ass Italian Doom)

SUUM – Cryptomass (Not Total Ass Italian Doom)

  Okay Italy, okay, there is hope, after all. In case you missed it, which I know you did, I’ve been ripping on Italian doom metal over the past couple years because pretty much any submission I’ve gotten from the country in said genre has been total ass. The primary reason is this strange tendency […]

Sarcator – Visions of Purgatory (Former Metallica Worship Blackened Thrash)

Sarcator – Visions of Purgatory (Former Metallica Worship Blackened Thrash)

  Finland seems to be the experimental mecca of metal these days, but what about Sweden? It’s tucked there in the middle between that and koovoolt Norway. You certainly know Sweden’s hailed as the mecca of WTF metal with bizarre vocal delivery, complex solo passages, and the like, but never really fully experimental. So it’s […]
