Coscradh – Mesradh Machae (The Heads of the Men Who Have Been Slaughtered)

  For as loonnnggg as this album title is it certainly is short! But, man, Ireland’s Coscradh prove they can get it done in under fifteen minutes. Fook extra tracks, Mesradh Machae is good to go in only two and it fares far better than submissions I received this past month that last over thirty […]

Satanized – Baphomet Altar Worship (Scary Tiki Torch Blackened Death Metal)

  This is yet another sick promo from Portugal I’ve received these past few months, though the band photos it came with included one with dude creepily crossing two flaming tiki torches omg so scary. In spite of that silliness, you’d still expect sickness upon looking at the cover by Thailand’s “Sickness 666” with, let’s […]

Speedkiller – Midnight Vampire (Castlevania Blackened Death Metal)

  Yeaaaahhhh get it. You ready for some Vampire: The Masquerade mattafakkas? You’ve got to be careful of vampire stuff, and this is coming from someone who teaches a course on vampires, so like, I know. Vampire aesthetic is of polar opposites: totally cool or totally drool. The cool variety often carries that 18th century […]

Omegavortex – Black Abomination Spawn (Exactly Like Their Moniker Blackened Death Metal)

  Lol these guys. I see any reference to voids, chasms, and generally anything that suggests a gaping pit of despair and disorder, I know it’s going to be killer. This goes for any genre but blackened death metal? Yeah, works there for sure. It’s almost a requirement. Germany’s Omegavortex are the true curtain to […]

Evoker – Evil Torment (Love Hate Relationship Death Metal)

  Though the creeping beast grave cover by Skaðvaldur is cool, I was completely disinterested in Evoker’s new EP, Evil Torment, when I started to listen. Ugh…more death metal…I thought, and let it churn and grumble in the background as I did other things, barely paying attention…at first. But somehow it began to chew away […]

Goatblood – Apparition of Doomsday (Satan at Sea Blackened Death Metal)

  This is the second sea-themed blackened death metal album I’ve reviewed this past month. Is this a new “thing”? I hope yet pray not. At least here it doesn’t matter because it’s German DM. Something needs to pick up all that slack from the power metal front, ugh. Goatblood have been bleeding out a […]

Xantam – Altered State (AD&D Blackened Death Metal)

  Is it a thing that bands starting with “Xa” are one dude? Total exaggeration on my part, because only Xasthur comes to mind, but now there’s Xantam. Maybe I’m on to something… Anyway, so clearly there’s an AD&D obsession here, because one, dude’s got a beholder on both of his releases (this and a […]

Witchbones – The Seas of Draugen (Occult Death Metal on the Open Seas)

  Lol I always think the theme of the sea is silly in metal, but then I remember I’ve encountered a few bands over the years that have turned it from silly to formidable. We will now be adding to that imaginary list Witchbones, who preach the canon of occult death metal from broken ships […]

Hagzissa – They Ride Along (Real Specter Metal)

Hagzissa – They Ride Along (Real Specter Metal)

  Occasionally a band like this just totally nails the spook thing. It’s October, I’m late on reviewing this and disgusted at myself, it’s cold only part of the day, and there are fake ghosts about so I need to fully feel the spook. It’s a hard angle to play, though, there’s a balance between […]

Morbid Messiah – Demoniac Paroxysm (So Messy)

Morbid Messiah – Demoniac Paroxysm (So Messy)

  This is one of those releases where you know exactly what you’re in for yet it cleverly hides its filth so it passes Facebook censorship with flying colors. Note, for example, the torn, nude corpse at the bottom. I can guarantee their stupid scraper won’t notice it even though nipple shots are a no-go. […]
