Dkharmakhaoz – Proclamation ov the Black Suns (Did I Spell it Right Post-Apocalyptic Black Metal)

  Sometimes metal of the arcane is just lame. Don't bring that shit if you can't walk that shit. This is especially problematic when bands of this virulent strain have really long and/or difficult to spell names like that's supposed to mean they're awesome or something. Holy shit I can't even pronounce it let alone […]

Shezmu – À Travers Les Lambeaux (Mummified Death Metal)

  Yeah that's all I got for today, mummies, but it's totally accurate, or rather just watch me make it work. Though Shezmu are heavily laden with Egyptian themes in their earlier work, their latest, À Travers Les Lambeaux is subtle in this regard, so it'll be tough. But let's start by saying if you […]

Deadlight Sanctuary – Thaumaturgical Rites of the Damned (Abhorrently Not Kvlt Ritualistic Black Metal)

  Sometimes I wonder how black metal can do the same old thing, but here I go again with that oft-stated conundrum. It's the same thing with classic hardcore, punk, and the like. There's always the typical, and that's what pretty much runs the genre as a whole. But jeez, I say, why can't more […]

Ice War – Defender, Destroyer (One-Man Snow-Hating Heavy Metal)

Ice War – Defender, Destroyer (One-Man Snow-Hating Heavy Metal)

  Nice, some actual heavy metal that's actually good. I was struggling to understand what in the hell this band name was about since this is now a one-man power act that was originally part of Iron Dogs (known for their risque covers), and that name made sense. Ice War, like, what is that? Is […]

Executioner’s Mask – Despair Anthems (A Timeline of Goth)

Executioner’s Mask – Despair Anthems (A Timeline of Goth)

  A fine week this has been. Nearly every genre of the dark fells into my hands, and even some brutal death rap by a sexually extreme queen of hell. So I figured we'd end it on a sad note, a tenderly painful memory of the week the most reviews were ever done at Deaf […]

BIGKLIT – KLITORIUS BIG (Violating S3xual Death Rap)

BIGKLIT – KLITORIUS BIG (Violating S3xual Death Rap)

  I rarely do rap mainly because what I receive is so derivative I wonder why they even try. And the art...uggghhhhh. What is it with the hip-hop and rap community and god awful art? Seriously. Occasionally there are goodies like Chong Wizard, but I suppose like anything else the taint of the typical is […]

Fake Snake – Instigate (Haunted Factory of Pain Music)

Fake Snake – Instigate (Haunted Factory of Pain Music)

  So like I know this guy from way back maaannnn. I actually released a CD on the previous label (now combined with Deaf Sparrow) of another of his crazy acts, Melted Cassettes, and was thus hoping for something of the sort. Lucky me, because his other incarnation, Fake Snake, while bringing to mind pleasant […]

Entry- Detriment (Some Prosaic Punk Stuff)

Entry- Detriment (Some Prosaic Punk Stuff)

  I typically review punk submissions when I get them unless they're absolutely awful, so even the average I'll give a shot just because it's so rare I receive anything from the genre that doesn't reek of stagnancy. When I saw the quintessential post-punk look to the cover of this I figured it would be […]

Scolopendra – Those of the Catacombs (Vocally Sophomoric Occult Death Metal)

Scolopendra – Those of the Catacombs (Vocally Sophomoric Occult Death Metal)

  Well this is a curious state of affairs. Two of the dudes in Abhor and two random dudes from other bands appear to have a side project of sorts, or perhaps just a one-off, we don't know yet because this is the only thing Scolopendra has done. It came out of nowhere, and it […]

Skeleton – S/T (Dark Basement Thrash)

Skeleton – S/T (Dark Basement Thrash)

  This kind of thrash conjures my favorite vision. Imagine a basement in a lower-middle income, at best, town somewhere in a broken down, former industrial center of the US, probably Ohio (actually Texas here, technically). Imagine in that shit hole a local quickie gas station is the only "entertainment" and in that doldrums is […]
