Netra: Sørbyen

Netra: Sørbyen

Why the delay in the Sparrow reviews?  Are those guys a bunch of lazy punks around here or what?  Get with it.  In our defense, blame this album.  Sørbyen is one of the strangest things we've ever received, and that's saying a ton because we're used to it weird around here.  But Netra has crossed […]

Sloth Herder: Abandon Pop Sensibility

Funny story about Frederick, MD.  The reviewer who is penning this review here happens to be doing research for a novel partially based on a true story, part of which involves a man shooting his wife through the heart, who was originally from Frederick, like really, that part's completely true.  After he killed her, and […]

Forgotten Tomb: …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil

One day, while looking for some depressing, suicidal, angst-spewing black metal, came across the name of Forgotten Tomb.  A tomb that is forgotten?  Does it get any more forlorn?  It would have to be both depressing and good, correct?  Yes, or make that more like yeeeeessssssss, well most of it.  ...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil marks […]

Torrid Husk: Caesious

Torrid Husk's Caesious has every marking of mundane, and it doesn't really make an effort to hide the fact.  The illegible, tree-like logo, the white, snowy, atmospheric artwork, it all screams 'Weakling', and you assume you're most likely in for a treat of overrated black metal made by people who shouldn't be anywhere near black […]

Symptoms of Sickness: S/T

Black and doom is a beautiful combination. It's a great medium to channel melancholy and wrath with deep, resonating growls, heart-wrenching riffs, and moments of infinite suffering. It sounds easy to accomplish but by the small number of black/doom bands out there that have become successful, it really is not. Fortunately for you, it seems […]

Černá: Restoring Life

Coming out of Kalamazoo, Michigan is Černá, a one-man instrumental, post-black metal band formed in 2011. Cody McCoy, the visionary behind Černá, is also the drummer for Death/Crust band Traitor and progressive death band Boreworm - both of which are great bands but are very unlike what he has created with Černá.   The first […]

Persekutor Interview

Persekutor Interview

The rabbit hole that led to the printing of this interview was deep and weird. Discovering Persekutor in a docket of pending reviews, we were intrigued enough to start a snowball of Google-fu that melted under the looking glass, and brought us no closer to understanding the brilliant mystery that is Persekutor, but the journey […]

Endstille: Kapitulation 2013

When a band comes around like Germany’s Endstille, you have to mentally and physically prepare yourself for the next hour of merciless and unforgiving auditory assault leaving you angry and wishing you bought that katana on Amazon so you can chop whatever you can find in your backyard. Kapitulation 2013, the most recent release by […]

Australasia: Sin4tr4

Sometimes artwork doesn't tell you much of anything about a release.  See, that's the problem we have here.  You see something that follows a typical style, say to yourself "aw man some sort of crappy deathcore", you put it in, actually good, hmm looks like we were wrong...  Case in point right here, because the […]
