Victorius – Dinosaur Warfare Legend of the Powersaurus (Seriousaurus)

Victorius – Dinosaur Warfare Legend of the Powersaurus (Seriousaurus)

I joked about this one on Facebook when I posted one of the band’s promo photos. Some of you thought it was a meme I created, but it was not. And this critical review, too, is real. Victorius is one of several German bands over the past year that have left me disappointed, but this […]

Hellish God – The Evil Emanations (You’ve Heard This Metal)

Hellish God – The Evil Emanations (You’ve Heard This Metal)

I really wanted to slam to this one. For two reasons. One, the art kills, two I have yet to give such praise to a death metal band from Italy. Let’s start with the art. Though not atypical, or even moderately unique, the cover of The Evil Emanations, by Adi Christianize of Dechristianize Art, is so […]

Rotheads – Sewer Fiends (Satanic Rats)

Congratulations to Rotheads, the first Romanian band to be considered for a review on my trash site. In fact, this might be the first Romanian band to get a review on Deaf Sparrow in general, even going back to the older site prior to 2013. It takes a lot to get reviewed on here, I’ve been […]

Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

I’ve been hearing some great Greek metal as of late, and let’s add this one to the list. Actually make that sort-of. Maybe a footnote, or a parenthetical mentioning, or maybe a margin scribble. First off, that name, Ectoplasma. It’s possibly one of the greatest death metal band names ever conceived, even though they’re not […]

Abysmal Grief – Blasphema Secta (Ouija Metal)

Abysmal Grief – Blasphema Secta (Ouija Metal)

I was really drawn to the art of this one, by the current guitarist of Abysmal Grief Regen Graves, and I also wanted to give it a shot because I’m pretty sure I’ve never reviewed anything from Sun & Moon Records or Terror from Hell Records before. If I did it was before the new […]

Druid Lord – Grotesque Offerings (Slow Metal)

Druid Lord – Grotesque Offerings (Slow Metal)

I remember when I first came across these guys, back in 2010 when they released their first album, and that was three years before the new future of Deaf Sparrow with this updated site you’re currently wasting your time on. Though you won’t find the old review here, as it’s stuck in FTP on the […]

Vaultwraith – Death is Proof of Satan’s Power (Olde Satan)

Vaultwraith – Death is Proof of Satan’s Power (Olde Satan)

I’ve been thinking on this one for several weeks now. As is usual around here, that means something is confusing or unclear. In this case it appears to be neither. I’m fully convinced this is an “on purpose” but yet have no actual proof as the band remains obscure and seems to have no live […]

apologoethia – Pillars (Spanish Black/Death Metal Please Be My Friend)

apologoethia – Pillars (Spanish Black/Death Metal Please Be My Friend)

This is not the first time I’ve encountered amazing things from out of Spain. In fact I think this is like the shmillionth time this year. I want to just be good friends with any band from the country playing black or death metal. I’ve made several successful attempts to befriend such bands because, recently, […]

Aynsophar – Abysmal Secrets of Unknown (Too True)

Aynsophar – Abysmal Secrets of Unknown (Too True)

I’m trying to think how I can best introduce this one without giving attention to the obvious. Okay let me just say it then. Aynsophar is the brainchild of Barbara Teleki, Hungarian-born guitar master and instrumentalist extreme. Yes, that’s right, she’s a woman. I mention this for only one reason. Far too often does one […]

EXPANDER – Endless Computer (Byte Metal)

EXPANDER – Endless Computer (Byte Metal)

I want to see more damn computers in underground music. I don’t mean computers as instruments, we’ve had that awhile, I mean computers for aesthetics. It’s time we begin to embrace our computer lives and accept that, yes, the machines are coming and will take over, and what better way than music that speaks of this coming […]
