Xantam – Altered State (AD&D Blackened Death Metal)

Xantam – Altered State (AD&D Blackened Death Metal)

  Is it a thing that bands starting with “Xa” are one dude? Total exaggeration on my part, because only Xasthur comes to mind, but now there’s Xantam. Maybe I’m on to something… Anyway, so clearly there’s an AD&D obsession here, because one, dude’s got a beholder on both of his releases (this and a […]

Witchbones – The Seas of Draugen (Occult Death Metal on the Open Seas)

Witchbones – The Seas of Draugen (Occult Death Metal on the Open Seas)

  Lol I always think the theme of the sea is silly in metal, but then I remember I’ve encountered a few bands over the years that have turned it from silly to formidable. We will now be adding to that imaginary list Witchbones, who preach the canon of occult death metal from broken ships […]

Umbra Conscientia – Yellowing of the Lunar Consciousness (That’s a Mouthful Black Metal)

  I forgot where Costa Rica was until I listened to these guys. For some reason I thought it was like an island by itself but it turns out it’s just near Panama. See, you can learn something new every time you listen to crud music, I swear. Perhaps the most important thing being that […]

Bednja – Doline Su Ostale Iza Nas (Dead Bird Blackened Hardcore)

  Wow what is it with Transcending Obscurity Records hitting it out of the park recently? This is one of a few dead bird covers I’ve seen in recent promo emails, but Doline Su Ostale Iza Nas is the smashed avian object d’art I decided to review because Bednja might be the greatest thing to […]

Warsenal – Feast Your Eyes (Glass in Eyes Thrash Metal)

Warsenal – Feast Your Eyes (Glass in Eyes Thrash Metal)

  Lol holy shit if Velio Josto‘s sick cover doesn’t say “yes you will like this,” then you deserve some glass to the eyes, and ears because you don’t deserve to listen either. I saw some complaints or something about the art but I won’t even bother trashing that drivel. Warsenal are a fifth-edition textbook […]

Motive – Fight the World (Cyberbullied Thrash)

Motive – Fight the World (Cyberbullied Thrash)

  I’m actually wondering why I’m reviewing this, because it’s not going to be good. First reason I can muster, that art by Diego Garza (Diablo Macabre) is thick. Second reason, actually, no, we’ll stop there. I have no other reasons I’m afraid. I’ve gone on the anti-retro thrash tirade a few times, or just […]

Hagzissa – They Ride Along (Real Specter Metal)

Hagzissa – They Ride Along (Real Specter Metal)

  Occasionally a band like this just totally nails the spook thing. It’s October, I’m late on reviewing this and disgusted at myself, it’s cold only part of the day, and there are fake ghosts about so I need to fully feel the spook. It’s a hard angle to play, though, there’s a balance between […]

Drofnosura – Voidfever (Sludge Chunk of Depression)

Drofnosura – Voidfever (Sludge Chunk of Depression)

  Now and again I come across something like Voidfever and I’m like “where did everyone go?” As the skeletal-faced, hooded thing on the cover by Dusty Ray devours the eyes and pulls inward you become introspective, sullen, and separated. Is it just me listening to this? Why though? It troubles me when a great […]

Lord Gore – Scalpels for Blind Surgeons (What I Thought Carcass Would Sound Like Band)

Lord Gore – Scalpels for Blind Surgeons (What I Thought Carcass Would Sound Like Band)

  As I said on Facebook a few times, Lord Gore clearly nails it for best metal band logo ever, any genre, of all time. I mean look at that, right? Every gender gets defiled equally! Talk about modern SJW pleasure centers. But then again I guess with songs like “Million Maggot March” it’s pretty […]
