Shadowland – The Necromancer’s Castle (Heavy Metal Magazine in Metal Form)

Shadowland – The Necromancer’s Castle (Heavy Metal Magazine in Metal Form)

  Yay, congrats, Shadowland, you have the only album worth listening to that’s dropping this week. Everything else I think I puked all over. And yay, this is another rare instance where I give a positive review to epic heavy metal. But this one comes with more awesome than I could have ever imagined. Lead […]

Rothadás – Kopár hant​.​.​. az alvilág felé (Eerie Death Doom Aw Man)

  Aw man we got some eerie stuff in native Hungarian tongue here, folks, aw man. You know that’s usually always good. Further, I can’t remember the last time I received a submission from a Hungarian act that wowed me to the extent of aw man. Maybe never. Maybe this is the first time, and […]

Putrevore – Miasmal Monstrosity (No Name-Dropping Brutal Death Metal)

  This is one of those releases where you could drop a load of names by means of comparison and that would be the review. Hell it has one dude from Avulsed and another from Paganizer so…for fans of… But I’ve never liked that approach because it eschews a discussion of the band itself, in […]

Azothyst – Blood of Dead God (Poisonous Blackened Death Metal)

  Well I knew this one was going to be a poisonous brain melt based on the skewed English in the title, Blood of Dead God. And then there’s the cover, which at once looks like classic etching, but is a conglomerate of disgust, which apparently is developed further in the jacket which is, quote […]

Hrom – Legends of Powerheart Part II (Harmony of Harmonies Power Metal)

  Hmm it seems I must take a former opinion back, though I think maybe not? I can’t remember much other than the fact that I’ve ripped on power metal for years because few can make it work. The reasons are too varied to consider in full here, but to be brief you’ve got the […]

Succumb – XXI (Philosophy Metal)

Succumb – XXI (Philosophy Metal)

  Oooohhh, tasty, tasty, tasty be this. First thing, released partially by The Flenser. Second thing, wow. To be wowed anymore I need to be challenged and surprised. Well, hard to challenge me so just stick with surprise. Make it a jump scare of riffs. I want riffs to bend mental states, I want the […]

Tentation – Le Berceau des Dieux (Better Than Maiden French Heavy Metal)

Tentation – Le Berceau des Dieux (Better Than Maiden French Heavy Metal)

  Awwww yeah. I feel like I need to say that here. I mean I probably have said it elsewhere but this particular releases warrants a classic awwww yeah because it itself is classic heavy metal, but with a beautiful French twist that actually is true beef instead of queef. Sorry, French, we know the […]

Lvcifyre – The Broken Seal (Monolithic Apocalyptic Serpent Metal)

Lvcifyre – The Broken Seal (Monolithic Apocalyptic Serpent Metal)

  Phew now here is something solid. I mean, I expect that out of the recent vanguard of English metal freaks, but still here’s another to add to the slowly-growing horde. Lvcifyre have been melting death metal into their own weapon for over a decade now, but their releases have been more sporadic and careful […]

Trance of the Undead – Chalice of Disease (Dismal Dungeon Black Metal)

Trance of the Undead – Chalice of Disease (Dismal Dungeon Black Metal)

  Check that crud art; black Sharpie covering a white piece of paper. Limited skill, limited shape, it’s like looking into a dark cave and allowing your eyes to adjust, but still too dark to really make out the image. And musically, ahhhh, Brazil’s Trance of the Undead is a comparable force of similar aesthetic. […]

Black Mass – Feast of the Forbidden Tree (Blackened “The Metal”)

Black Mass – Feast of the Forbidden Tree (Blackened “The Metal”)

  Oooo here’s a nice one. I likea me some thrash of the more violent type, but there’s more to this than that. And, to be honest, I thought Black Mass was going to be some power metal RPG bullshit about barbarians stealing your women but it ended up being sickened blackened old school thrash […]
