Eskhaton – Horracle (Nihilistic Death Metal)

  Holy…mahgucking…sheissefreide… I mean how else do I start this review? Never before has an EP assaulted me in such a way and satisfied so many dark desires in only five tracks. I usually see them thin-tracked promos and think ugggghhhh but I always give them a quick go. This was not a quick go. […]

Charnel Altar – Abatement of the Sun (Vile, Life-Ruining Blackened Death Doom)

Charnel Altar – Abatement of the Sun (Vile, Life-Ruining Blackened Death Doom)

  Well here’s an album that will turn you into a godforsaken, lowest form of scum. I mean this is just some of the most disgusting shit I’ve heard in awhile. Total garbage liquid. Total vomit feces. Total bile clot. That’s about what Charnel Altar’s latest rot pile is, something like that. Abatement of the […]

Ashen – Godless Oath (Methinks Good Australian Brutal Death Metal)

  A church burning in a more artistic way on the cover? Methinks me interested. Oh, and wait, these chaps are from Australia? Oooo, there’ve been some good things in death metal, methinks, coming out of that island of terrors for some time now, so it’s worth a listen for that fact alone. Australian death […]

The Plague – Within Death (All of the Death Metal)

The Plague – Within Death (All of the Death Metal)

  I receive a lot of death metal submissions with the ole’ skull cover aesthetic. Usually you can’t expect much out of such things but I dig bones so I give any skeletal art a try just for that reason. The Plague is yet another Australian death metal outfit that got my attention for their […]

Werewolves – What a Time to Be Alive (Actually Brutal Death Metal)

Werewolves – What a Time to Be Alive (Actually Brutal Death Metal)

  With such a genius cover making every attempt to disturb me (it won’t work, though) I knew Werewolves had only a slight chance to deliver what I wanted. What do I want? Sometimes I have no clue, though now and again I pray to get a good punk or hardcore submission, but if someone […]

Ill Omen – The Grande Usurper (Okkvlt Black Metal Ritvalz)

Ill Omen – The Grande Usurper (Okkvlt Black Metal Ritvalz)

  Here we have the latest release by occult black metal mystery Ill Omen, who hails from New South Wales, Australia. The Grande Usurper was released on Iron Bonehead Productions, well known for all that is underground kvlt for superior provincials. And if you’re reading this well that’s you, whose expected metal offerings demand the occult and […]

VAHRZAW – Husk (Like Warsaw But Less Metal)

VAHRZAW – Husk (Like Warsaw But Less Metal)

Good one guys, going with the spelling variant on a Slavic city, in this case Warsaw, or at least I assumed that was the idea (I was wrong). And since just everyone is talking about it, let’s consider for a second that scray [sic] art by the oh-so-great Luciana Nedelea, whose work you’ve probably encountered quite a […]

Grave Upheaval (Can’t Translate the Title Metal)

Grave Upheaval (Can’t Translate the Title Metal)

It’s hard to not like a band with a name like Grave Upheaval. Plenty of bands have used the word “grave,” but this one is far more powerful. Cemetery references are pretty stock now, but an upheaval, damn. This isn’t like defacing a single grave, it isn’t like committing sacrilege over a grave, this is an upheaval, like […]

Contaminated – Final Man (Big Hulking Beast Metal)

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 […]

Ur Draugr – With Hunger Undying

Ur Draugr – With Hunger Undying

I don’t know if anyone consistently follows or reads my reviews but if you have been, you’ll notice that most have been very positive. Unfortunately, I don’t often bother with bands I’m unfamiliar with unless Stan sends them my way (and I like the genre). So in an effort to review a band I’ve never […]
