Chainsword – Blightmarch (Dakka Dakka Metal)

Chainsword – Blightmarch (Dakka Dakka Metal)

  Ooooh those angry, angry Poles playing their video games. Still getting out that war angst I suppose. It’s understandable, the country was wrecked by subjugation and terror for like five-hundred years until the end of WWII, so I’d be pretty pissed too. But hey, I’ll allow it for at least one reason, that being […]

Socioclast – S/T (Bittersweet Grindcore)

Socioclast – S/T (Bittersweet Grindcore)

  Well this was surprisingly enjoyable for an album that first appears to be a rip off of some Teitanblood shit, but not nearly as long. In fact it’s not even half of that or so. Albums that deliver in such a short span of time are amazing to me when they work. Most bands […]

Perihelion Gnosis – Syzugial Summoning (Young Lad Death Doom Mastery)

Perihelion Gnosis – Syzugial Summoning (Young Lad Death Doom Mastery)

  I love primitive art if done right, and yes this would be an example. There’s a certain crudeness to this type of style that in the hands of a master speaks like a dejected sociopath scribbling esoteric nonsense during study hall. Perihelion Gnosis, in only a mere two tracks, makes it clear he’s easily […]

Evil – Possessed by Evil (Stop Being So Good Japanese Blackened Thrash)

  Oh my gosh can Japan stop being so good? Seriously they’re always so good. Why is any genre that country touches so good? Man something going on over there, I swear. That brings us to the unassuming blackened thrash outfit Evil, who chose perhaps the most obvious name of all for this type of […]

Carcinoma – Labascation (Chaotic Blackened Death Swirl)

Carcinoma – Labascation (Chaotic Blackened Death Swirl)

  Man sometimes I feel like this face here. All melty and swirly and shit. I should be more specific in saying I want to feel like this face here. I’m not there yet, I need something to bring the transformation to fruition, and Carcinoma should be able to deliver if only for the fact […]

Omination – NGR (Collapsing Cathedral Post-Apocalyptic Funeral Doom)

Omination – NGR (Collapsing Cathedral Post-Apocalyptic Funeral Doom)

  I wasn’t sure what to think of this one, at first, but I know I needed to listen. We’ve got tons of references built into that cover all under the post-apocalyptic banner: Knights Templar dude (maybe Blind Dead) with anime sword, Mad Max car in Dune sand, some Dark Tower castle, maybe Dracula, four […]

Julinko – no destroyer (Abject Loneliness Ghost Pop)

Julinko – no destroyer (Abject Loneliness Ghost Pop)

  Ahhh, now I can relax! See, I get tons and tons of metal submissions, little noise (most of that sux), some punk (usually sux), some hardcore (mostly sux), and so forth (most of it truly sux). Rarely do I get anything splendid of the ambient variety, or especially pop that takes the dark style […]

Alkerdeel – Slonk (Sludge Upon Your Sensibilities Since 2005)

Alkerdeel – Slonk (Sludge Upon Your Sensibilities Since 2005)

  Lol these guys. I get an Alkerdeel submission and that’s pretty much what I say to myself, in all sense of veneration, of course. I mean seriously was totally excited to listen this, for more reasons than are necessary to explain. Not only have I been listening to them for nearly as long as […]

Werewolves – What a Time to Be Alive (Actually Brutal Death Metal)

Werewolves – What a Time to Be Alive (Actually Brutal Death Metal)

  With such a genius cover making every attempt to disturb me (it won’t work, though) I knew Werewolves had only a slight chance to deliver what I wanted. What do I want? Sometimes I have no clue, though now and again I pray to get a good punk or hardcore submission, but if someone […]

Demoniac – So It Goes (Blackened Thrash Jazz Woah)

Demoniac – So It Goes (Blackened Thrash Jazz Woah)

  Ah, here comes a band that’s far more clever than most. Blackened thrash usually has a clear aesthetic, but Chile’s Demoniac abandon the established foundations for something newer. It’s not just the look, though that cover is just sick, nor is it the more philosophical title of So It Goes, Demoniac also incorporates unexpected […]
