Horns of Fear (Old School Horror Puzzle Freak Out)

Horns of Fear (Old School Horror Puzzle Freak Out)

  Boy do I ever remember games like this. When my family finally got a legit computer in the early 1990s, the first game I played on it was The 7th Guest, which you likely know. I won't even bother linking it because you're a total provincial if you don't know about it. Suffice to say, if the […]

Abjection Ritual – Soul of Ruin, Body of Filth (Industrial of Blah)

Abjection Ritual – Soul of Ruin, Body of Filth (Industrial of Blah)

  This is one of those releases I give multiple listens to, because once or even thrice is simply not enough. Not because I'm so below it, I simply need to allow my mind time to decide whether or not it deserves 'canon' status. Answer: this does not. Usually when I start like that it […]

Our Place of Worship is Silence – With Inexorable Suffering (Already Out of Space)

  You know when the band's name and album title have taken up nearly your entire post title and take more than a minute to write it's not going to be good. It just reeks of that sticky, foul kind of pretentiousness that ruins far too many bands. Note to those who dare tread this path, if […]

Schrat – Alptraumgänger (Wow 100% German Black Metal)

Schrat – Alptraumgänger (Wow 100% German Black Metal)

  Man, great art, yeah, love Misanthropic Art. And this is one of the more clever RPG terms-turned-band-name I've seen. WTF you talking about, asks the band. The closest translation in English we have of Schrat is "bugbear," you know, that thing from Dungeons & Dragons? Yeah, I get it, it's old folklore and such, but […]

Reverorum ib Malacht – Im Ra Distare (STFU Title’s Too Long)

Reverorum ib Malacht – Im Ra Distare (STFU Title’s Too Long)

  I'm, so sick of the hype surrounding this album and I'm going to be as brief as possible, but trust me, it's goddamn hard not to go off. Practically the only reason I'm reviewing it is because people just can't STFU about it. I don't even really like the cover. Oh, wow, some anti-Christian […]

Inisans – Transition (F It Metal)

  I have no idea what in the world Inisans means, and I don't care. Don't bother searching, either, because nothing will help you, trust me. I have skills man, don't bother I did it already. So I don't care, there's no reason to care, and Google can F off about asking me whether I meant […]

Morgengrau – Blood Oracle (Out of Ideas Metal)

Morgengrau – Blood Oracle (Out of Ideas Metal)

  Death metal. What else can one say about it? Nothing really, unless the genre learns to move along, and some bands have done that for sure. But far too many are stuck still doing the old thing. Rickety, crotchety, drooling. The old school style, with new production, is that what it takes? What solace […]

Ghastly – Death Velour (Finnish Death Metal Tho)

Man that Finnish death metal sound. How I forgot! How I could go on about it forever, though this is only the second band in memory I liked from Finland. Out of any country plugging the death metal hole till bursting, Sweden is the one that consistently gets the attention. Not because it's all so good, […]

First Winter (Retro Cold War Horror)

First Winter (Retro Cold War Horror)

Wow it's been so long I've played a game like this, and to see someone capture an era I actually lived so accurately just, uhhh... First Winter is a survival/puzzle horror mash from indie developer and programmer Dan Sanderson, whose previous work includes three titles prior to this, and who I assume probably lived in the 1980s. […]

Abhor – Occulta religiO (1920s Organ-Grinder Metal)

Abhor – Occulta religiO (1920s Organ-Grinder Metal)

  I love this cover, just love it. But my love stops there. because I had heard of Abhor before, and I wasn't excited then, still not very excited now. In the past they were the usual "true Norwegian" type of black metal, only not from Norway. But they've been around since 1995, an impressive […]
