Occult Burial – Burning Eerie Lore (Sacrificing Saplings Occult Thrash)

  I knew this would be good when I saw the band photo with three dudes sacrificing a with torches, or it may have been a sapling, and one is looking all spooky while in the process of growing balder and totally doesn’t give a shit if you notice. Thrash has proven one of the […]

Shezmu – À Travers Les Lambeaux (Mummified Death Metal)

  Yeah that’s all I got for today, mummies, but it’s totally accurate, or rather just watch me make it work. Though Shezmu are heavily laden with Egyptian themes in their earlier work, their latest, À Travers Les Lambeaux is subtle in this regard, so it’ll be tough. But let’s start by saying if you […]

Ice War – Defender, Destroyer (One-Man Snow-Hating Heavy Metal)

  Nice, some actual heavy metal that’s actually good. I was struggling to understand what in the hell this band name was about since this is now a one-man power act that was originally part of Iron Dogs (known for their risque covers), and that name made sense. Ice War, like, what is that? Is […]

Black Pestilence – Hail the Flesh (Infernal Blackened Punk)

  Cool shit man, Satanic punk. You might call it “blackened punk,” but there’s so much Satan thrash stuff going on, you know, so “infernal blackened punk” sounds way cooler. Let’s go with that. I put it in the title too so I can claim copyright later and make a lot of money when some […]

Expunged – S/T (Non-Regressive Death Metal Filth)

  Man can Hell’s Headbangers get any better at picking out these random, new bands that absolutely slay? I guess that’s why they do what they do so well. Someone there’s got a knack. So we’ve got Expunged here today, who self-describe their style as, quote “sick, rotten, coated in filth death metal surrounded by […]

Lutharö – Wings of Agony (Melodic Toddler Death Metal)

  Yaaaaaaaaahhhhh (with a bit of fluctuating). That’s practically how all these albums start out, those scream from the heart vocals, I just can’t mimic the “epic” guitars and such properly with words so add those too. But damn does it feels moderately good this time for some reason WTF. I’m not sure I can […]

Raider – Guardian of Fire (Forged in a Meek Spark Thrash)

  I like sword guy. I thought sword guy would bring me some thrash fire. But he brings more of a spark that could, some day, ignite into bigger flames of thrash. That requires hands willing to work for it, however, and the work needs to be personal. It is necessary to grind the thrash […]

Bone Mother (Baba-Yaga Pronounced Correctly Folk Horror)

  The horror industry should really dig into folklore more, from anywhere, and lose the jumpscares. I don’t mean dig in there, steal some stuff, and then claim it as one’s own, I mean let it reveal itself. Case in point this recent, animated, true-to-the-original short, Bone Mother, which draws on Russian folklore, in particular […]

Sleepwraith – S/T (“For Fans Of” Derivative Metal)

  Now here’s a nice example of “for fans of.” Usually when I see that phrase in a promo I groan and the whole album is already in my head before I start. Sleepwraith are entirely new. You’ll find almost nothing about them aside from ramblings about this very S/T on sites like ours. That’s […]

Warsenal – Feast Your Eyes (Glass in Eyes Thrash Metal)

  Lol holy shit if Velio Josto‘s sick cover doesn’t say “yes you will like this,” then you deserve some glass to the eyes, and ears because you don’t deserve to listen either. I saw some complaints or something about the art but I won’t even bother trashing that drivel. Warsenal are a fifth-edition textbook […]
