Sonic Poison – Eruption (Apocalyptic Combat Grind)

Sonic Poison – Eruption (Apocalyptic Combat Grind)

  Lol I saw this called grindcore somewhere? Please, listen, restrict the usage of that tag to bands that are bad please. I mean come on this is clearly combat grind. I feel bad for those out there dealing such nonsense, but even worse for myself because I have to waste time pulling out a […]

Congealed Putrescence – Within the Ceaseless Murk (Swampy Death Metal)

Congealed Putrescence – Within the Ceaseless Murk (Swampy Death Metal)

  Here’s another one of these releases, but, hey, I’ll take it. I was going to call it murky death metal, which I did the other day for another release, and which this certainly is, I mean look at the EP’s title! But, since these scumbags are from New Orleans I figured swampy would be […]

Skumstrike – Deadly Intrusions (Blackened Speed Punk of Much Rejoicing)

Skumstrike – Deadly Intrusions (Blackened Speed Punk of Much Rejoicing)

  Ahhh rejoice, this is an easy one. This is one of those albums that’s incredibly simple to review but most critics wasted, or will waste, their time on saying it, relying on inexcusable and nonsensical references to Shakespeare while experimenting in diluted Gonzo journalism, in the end obscuring WTF they’re trying to say and […]

Succumb – XXI (Philosophy Metal)

Succumb – XXI (Philosophy Metal)

  Oooohhh, tasty, tasty, tasty be this. First thing, released partially by The Flenser. Second thing, wow. To be wowed anymore I need to be challenged and surprised. Well, hard to challenge me so just stick with surprise. Make it a jump scare of riffs. I want riffs to bend mental states, I want the […]

Severed Boy – Tragic Encounters (Body Horror Death Doom)

Severed Boy – Tragic Encounters (Body Horror Death Doom)

  Well here’s a repulsive crusher I can utilize to summon various references to awful things of the human body. I figured with the dejected lump of grief flesh on the cover it would be so, but sometimes you don’t know. Cover art is only the beginning of the journey, never the end. Featuring two […]

Můra – Doom Invocations and Narcotic Rituals (Opium Addicted Death Doom)

Můra – Doom Invocations and Narcotic Rituals (Opium Addicted Death Doom)

  Lol these filthy shits. I can’t remember the last time I reviewed a Czech band but I’m not going to bother to look because these guys are all that matter at the moment. I often wish blackened metal, of any attached genre, would just slow the hell down now and then. Really does it […]

Perihelion Gnosis – Syzugial Summoning (Young Lad Death Doom Mastery)

Perihelion Gnosis – Syzugial Summoning (Young Lad Death Doom Mastery)

  I love primitive art if done right, and yes this would be an example. There’s a certain crudeness to this type of style that in the hands of a master speaks like a dejected sociopath scribbling esoteric nonsense during study hall. Perihelion Gnosis, in only a mere two tracks, makes it clear he’s easily […]

Ritual Mass – Abhorred in the Eyes of God (Some Death Metal Again)

Ritual Mass – Abhorred in the Eyes of God (Some Death Metal Again)

  Let’s finish off my choice cuts in music this week with some rotting death metal. Angry, masculine vocals, visions of torment, riffs that sound like new songs the second way through (even though there are only four tracks), etc. There’s no better way to unwind, now and then. Like a mutually-agreed-upon backyard boxing match, […]

Marthe – Sisters of Darkness (I Believe in Heavy Metal Again)

Marthe – Sisters of Darkness (I Believe in Heavy Metal Again)

  Sometimes something so short and simple can be so freaking powerful. Though calling this a demo is a bit inapplicable to what is really a beyond-EP length freaking beast out of nowhere. Heavy metal, doom, and all that sort of thing are so often beaten into the ground by the templates utilized by most […]

Sign of Evil – Psychodelic Horror (Blackened Goth Punk, I Think)

Sign of Evil – Psychodelic Horror (Blackened Goth Punk, I Think)

  Phew almost missed this one I say. It just so happened that the limited 7″ promo came in el email and I was like wut how I have no hear? Whatever, here it is anyway, whatever it is, I really don’t know to be honest. So Chile is no stranger to some of the […]
