Sadistik Forest – Obscure Old Remains (Blasphemic Destruction Metal)

Sadistik Forest – Obscure Old Remains (Blasphemic Destruction Metal)

  Oooooo those lovely Finns do it again with a touch of blasphemy, with a touch of spite, with a touch of… I mean not these guys in particular, just like any metal band from that country practically. Sadistik Forest has technically been around for some time, but didn’t hit full stride until about ten […]

Morbid Breath – In the Hand of the Reaper (Fooking Death Thrash)

Morbid Breath – In the Hand of the Reaper (Fooking Death Thrash)

  Oh yeah we got some death thrash here with fooking dragons, fooking castles, fooking crumbling stairs, fooking medieval torture devices, fooking lightning, and yeah even a fooking grim reaper crowning all of it with a fooking scythe. And being that Morbid Breath is also from fooking Sweden, you can anticipate that In the Hand […]

Anatomia – Corporeal Torment (Dismal Slow Death Metal)

  Here’s a time where I agree with the band beyond any calculable percentages. Dismal slow death metal. Damn, that covers it. Japan’s Anatomia have been in the scene for almost twenty years now, but their full-length output is rather small in comparison to their variety of demo, EP, and especially split appearances. That seems […]

Sněť – Mokvání V Okovech (Mildewed Death Metal)

  Lol what a great name for a band. Czechia’s Sněť, which means “Mildew,” are true to their chosen title, saturated in water and stained black from years of being in a basement. That’s exactly how Mokvání V Okovech sounds, and there is little else you need for reference before you just hit start already, […]

Dødsferd – Skotos (It’s Greek Black Metal)

  Hey, it’s Greek black metal! I’m not sure what else I can say beyond that but let’s give it a try. Dødsferd is one of Greece’s oldest black metal acts, and by virtue of that fact alone they already deserve to be at the front of the cavalry charge into the riff blizzard we […]

Kryptik Mutation – Pulle from the Pit (Clearly Brutal Death Metal)

  Oh damn we got a monster cover here whooo. Also impalement. Through an eye. Why is this happening and what does it mean? It doesn’t matter, folks, because this is Kryptik Mutation! They’re not here for the sake of clarity, unless you specifically mean brutal death metal with a legible logo. They’re absolutely clear […]

Coscradh – Mesradh Machae (The Heads of the Men Who Have Been Slaughtered)

  For as loonnnggg as this album title is it certainly is short! But, man, Ireland’s Coscradh prove they can get it done in under fifteen minutes. Fook extra tracks, Mesradh Machae is good to go in only two and it fares far better than submissions I received this past month that last over thirty […]

Ifrinn – Caledonian Black Magick (Orthodox Black Metal)

  Black metal orthodoxy is usually anathema these days. There’s the conundrum of “should it be from Norway to be troo?” or “should we keep playing these same cold riffs?” Those are the two biggest issues with the classic vein. I prefer submissions that change expectations, but doing things the presumably easy way can work. […]

Universally Estranged – Reared Up in Spectral Predation (Real Cosmic Death Metal)

Universally Estranged – Reared Up in Spectral Predation (Real Cosmic Death Metal)

  I knew this shit was going to be deep. Actually, better to say I knew it wanted to be deep, because it’s trying out that “cosmic death metal” thing. Whether or not it was was up to the task depended on my blackholes (ears) and my existential consumption of conflagration (brain). See? Deep shit […]

The Plague – Within Death (All of the Death Metal)

The Plague – Within Death (All of the Death Metal)

  I receive a lot of death metal submissions with the ole’ skull cover aesthetic. Usually you can’t expect much out of such things but I dig bones so I give any skeletal art a try just for that reason. The Plague is yet another Australian death metal outfit that got my attention for their […]
