Coffin Torture – Blennoid (Hallucinatory Sludge Metal)

Coffin Torture – Blennoid (Hallucinatory Sludge Metal)

  I probably liked this more than I should have because of that cover art. I mean damn have you seen anything better than that in the past century? It tells you everything you need to know about Coffin Torture’s brand of sludge metal; it’s pungently sticky like mucous, and slightly hallucinogenic. And can you […]

Gonemage – Handheld Demise (Post-Black Metal Noise Pop Chiptunes Glitchery)

  This came in by chance. No, actually, it’s like the second or third submission by this guy, except this time I didn’t pass on it lol (art is too cool). Gonemage is actually the brainchild of a number of people, though technically it’s primarily run by one of the dudes in Cara Neir (search […]

Yevabog – Between Two Fires (Arcane Death Metal)

  Dang talk about time flies when you’re listening to shit like this. Once it was all over I wished it wasn’t and couldn’t believe how much this one-man powergod covered in so short a time. A mere twenty-two minutes and some seconds long, Between Two Fires brings to the forefront a currently unknown one-man […]

Orthodoxy – Ater Ignis (Macabre Occult Death Metal)

  Now here’s a solid release. Orthodoxy are a relatively new act from the recent Spanish vanguard of the macabre, with members from bands you mostly probably haven’t heard of. Ah, that’s how we like it around here! Obscure, dark…ahhh. So relaxing! Ater Ignis is but their second full-length, but continues their development into a […]

OvO – Ignoto (Antideluvian Industrial Black Metal Sludge Drone HS)

  Holy shit. Sometimes I wonder why I continue to curate promos, but I must remind myself it’s simple. One, not enough time to do everything, and two, most of what I receive is B average at best. Why bother? But, now and then I get something like OvO here and just have to say […]

Medieval Demon – Black Coven (Macabre Romantic Black Metal)

Medieval Demon – Black Coven (Macabre Romantic Black Metal)

  They have…returned. I was first made privy to Medial Demon over a year ago upon reviewing their last full-length, Arcadian Witchcraft. Mixing macabre romanticism with occult horror was a nice mix, including church organ in the instrument line-up, which lent a sound in fitting with their themes. This time around, though still carrying that […]

Barbarian – Viperface (Regressive to the Core but Not a Bore Thrash Metal)

Barbarian – Viperface (Regressive to the Core but Not a Bore Thrash Metal)

  I like the way these guys play, on two counts. One, the literally playing of the music, and two, the playing with the audience. Not so easy a task when you be playing that retro type of thrash, which can sink into its own past too often and lose the listener in bygone eras, […]

Cara Neir – Phantasmal (Cybergrind Chiptunes Screamo Horror)

Cara Neir – Phantasmal (Cybergrind Chiptunes Screamo Horror)

  Yo let me break the “don’t review after release” rule I set some years ago. Sometimes, my will be done, because rarely do I get stuff like this, and typically after release too like WTF. Like get on that earlier promo train sons. Anyway so Cara Neir came out of nowhere, or, actually, I […]

Sedimentum – Suppuration Morphogénésiaque (Mucosal Death Metal)

  Nice I just came up with another new genre tag. I mean, let’s face it, these days there’s just too much out there and too much melding of styles to just say “death metal” and expect people to get it. So like, if we call Canada’s Sedimentum as such, where does that leave us? […]
