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 […]

Siege Column – Darkside Legions (Xerox Notebook Torture Art Filth Metal)

Siege Column – Darkside Legions (Xerox Notebook Torture Art Filth Metal)

  Ah yes, so happy to see these guys emerging again from their rank cavern dungeon along the rotting ship banks of New Jersey filth waters where they lurk. And I love getting out mouthfuls of cruddy words to say it. Siege Column already perfected their socially awkward, emotionally abused metalhead scribbling murder art sound, […]

Rope Sect – The Great Flood (Sentimental Moan Rock)

Rope Sect – The Great Flood (Sentimental Moan Rock)

  Well I meant to get on this one before release but a tree hit our house so like that was more important I guess. Rope Sect I've heard before and I'm glad to see a furtherance of the band's signature sound of seclusion in this latest sampling of post-punk, quasi-Goth, death rock, moan metal […]

Angel Morgue – In the Morgue of Angels (The Redundant of Blasphemous Death Metal)

Angel Morgue – In the Morgue of Angels (The Redundant of Blasphemous Death Metal)

  I was trying to figure out why in the hell I enjoyed any bit of this after a few listens in spite of its seemingly redundant approach. I mean just look at that cover. Though cool, it couldn't possible be more redundant. Titling an album In the Morgue of Angels when you've already covered […]

Sanity Control – War on Life (Thrash on Stereotype)

Sanity Control – War on Life (Thrash on Stereotype)

  Man this wants to be so crossover even the art is freaking crossing that over. Attempting to combine all the best junk from thrash, punk, hardcore, and whatever else crossover is supposed to be, Sanity Control are the true spirit of this style, but not truly the art. Perhaps too true for their own […]

Ox Hunger – Gloss on the Blood (Body Horror Dysmorphic Noise)

Ox Hunger – Gloss on the Blood (Body Horror Dysmorphic Noise)

  What perfectly distressed sounds. What pain and suffering. What loathing of the self. Ox Hunger I would normally have passed on because the promo arrived so far past release date (February in this case), but as I often say it's rare I get music of this type that's one, good, and two, hmm, good. […]
