Hässlig – Apex Predator (Raw Blackened Punk)

Hässlig – Apex Predator (Raw Blackened Punk)

  Oh man, oh boy, oh Jesus. See that album title? Apex Predator. Are you feeling a little base? A little beta? Are you a little weakling in spirit? Are you psychologically impotent and in need of an unmedical boost? Well, listen here, Spain’s Hässlig will put bubbles in the blood, get your mouth frothing […]

Unearthly Rites – Ecdysis (Finnish DIY Crust Death)

Unearthly Rites – Ecdysis (Finnish DIY Crust Death)

  Well, hmm. This is the second release of this type I’ve reviewed this particular week. One where there isn’t much that needs to be said about it. Everything can be read at face value. In fact, Finland’s Unearthly Rites follow some pretty standard paths in their construction of DIY crust death, yet it’s so […]

Spaghetti (Hideous Werewolf Cannibal Literature)

Spaghetti (Hideous Werewolf Cannibal Literature)

  When the lives of six people combine in the most random and fleeting ways, all separately and short, one huge issue brings them together. By together I mean in the loosest of senses. After meeting each other the first time none of them ever really meet again. But the curse of the werewolf leaves […]

Vesseles – I Am a Demon (Dysphoric Black Metal)

Vesseles – I Am a Demon (Dysphoric Black Metal)

  Alright, so I thought really hard about reviewing this one. In the end, obviously the choice was made, but it was largely for thematic and philosophical reasons (and quite a bit of research) than it was the music. United States symphonic black metal act Vesseles aren’t pulling out stops for I Am a Demon […]

Profanation – Skull Crushing Violence (Blatantly Obvious Grind Punk)

Profanation – Skull Crushing Violence (Blatantly Obvious Grind Punk)

  There’s nothing much to say about the blatant and the obvious. You merely absorb as it appears. Consisting of members of a number of devastating bands in the French sphere of gross music, Profanation combine these efforts into what could be a one-off or new project, but either way it doesn’t matter. The reason? […]

Dead End Drive-in (Dystopian Dayglo Horror Drama)

Dead End Drive-in (Dystopian Dayglo Horror Drama)

  Described by none other than Quentin Tarantino as his favorite film in the “Exploration” subgenre, Brian Trenchard-Smith’s Dead End Drive-in receives a jam packed 2-disc UHD special edition from the fine folks at Umbrella Entertainment. A queasy mix of dayglo Post-Nuke goodness and genuinely effective social satire, this film is a personal favorite for […]

Obscurial – Heretic (Puncture Wound Death Metal)

Obscurial – Heretic (Puncture Wound Death Metal)

  Alright, let’s start with this is probably the best metal band to come out of Malaysia, ever. I don’t want to hear about anyone else after this, and don’t you dare try to say “well, what about X,” because I’ve heard it all and I know already. Don’t try with me. As usual I […]

Coffin Curse (Darkly Negative Death Metal for You to Love)

Coffin Curse (Darkly Negative Death Metal for You to Love)

  Yes, I love Chile! I want to live there! Basically every band submission I get from the country is golden. Send me a plane ticket Coffin Curse I want to hang out! Then we can celebrate your greatest release to date, The Continuous Nothing, which is rather the opposite. More like continuous awesome. In […]

The Haar (Sentimental Amorphous Beast Horror)

The Haar (Sentimental Amorphous Beast Horror)

  I’ve been trying to get more into horror with a bit more feeling behind it. Whilst I enjoy the relentless gore that many of the books I read offer, sometimes they lack any sort of real story or emotion, other than just people’s guts being forcibly ripped out. The Haar is a story about […]

Burial Ground (Italian Zombie Splatter Depravity)

Burial Ground (Italian Zombie Splatter Depravity)

  Now in the “completely bugged out” category of Cinema, Andrea Bianchi’s Burial Ground returns to amaze us all in the definitive version compliments of our friends at Severin Films. This film has confused and amused us for decades since its release in 1983 by Motion Picture Marketing and subsequent VHS edition by the legendary […]
