Cadaveric Incubator – Sermons of the Devouring Dead (WAKE UP)

Okay, everyone, it’s time to wake the hell up. Get up! Out of your beds! Out of work! Stop whatever you’re doing right the hell now and listen to some death metal crud. I just wanted something I didn’t have to think about today. I’ve been doing too much thinking, and that can lead to bad things […]

Necrot – Blood Offerings (Another Baby Sacrifice)

I guess since the 1980s set the standard with baby slaying imagery, we need to keep that going so anyone just getting into death metal knows what it is. It doesn’t bother me, no, I just sometimes would prefer deathers come up with new themes, because I pretty much chose this one for the aesthetics […]

Heir – Au Peuple de l’Abîme (Post-Suicidal Black Metal)

I swear if this label ever sends me anything bad the world is going to end that particular day. Les Acteurs de L’Ombre Productions is, again, the absolute heir of all that was the kingdom of black metal in France. Since its inception in 2009, I have never failed to be amazed by the label’s output. It’s the only […]

Abhordium – Omega Prayer (Sacrifice to Stomach Monster)

Something is up in Finland I‘m telling you right now. It’s like everyone was so sick of the mockery that is Finntroll that locals realized they needed to step it up, and instead of using gimmicks, they started to write actual music. Music you can never laugh at, music that breaks barriers, such as the recent one […]

american – Violate and Control (Sigh, My Tears Flow)

Facebook was begging me to post something for all of you because I haven’t been. This album is why. Now and then I get hit, hard, by a revelation. Here it is. Sometimes people accept goodness on what everyone else says and assume the opinion as their own. When I first knew that american was […]

Entrapment – Through Realms Unseen (Corpse Compactor Metal)

Good, finally, I needed some color in my art to break up all the damn black and white on the slider. Awesome art by Marald van Haasteren. And, you know, sometimes I feel like this decaying corpse right here yeah. The weight of everything pressing down on you, you release a groan, and you’re basically like, […]

Contaminated – Final Man (Big Hulking Beast Metal)

I’ve been listening to this one way  too much. So much that I’ve been trying to convince the band to do a special, limited-run tape and shirt combo, but to no avail. Their powers are too great to accept my grovelling as worthy enough to be printed onto glorious celluloid music strips. But that’s okay I […]

Ustalost – The Spoor of Vipers (Someone Finally Dropped a Fecal Reference)

I really liked the title of this one, until I thought about it more and remembered, that, yes, this can be considered a reference to poop or sultry odors emanating from slithering beasts. Say, there’s a band name or album title, right there. Copyright Deaf Sparrow 8 November 2017, though, sorry. So can this band overcome its […]

Replacire – Do Not Deviate (Or So They Claim)

Here’s something I’m pretty sure of now. If I say the opposite of basically everyone else out there pretending to be a critic, it’s correct. End of story. Especially with technical death metal, which, yes, this is. Boston’s Replacire I have to give credit to for staying so true to their look. Thus, Do Not Deviate […]
