Nocturnal Departure – Clandestine Theurgy (Corrupted Black Metal)

Nocturnal Departure – Clandestine Theurgy (Corrupted Black Metal)

  This one surprised me. In many ways it features forms that are quite standard to black metal as a whole, specifically second-wave, yet there are variations that, though they’d at first seem only slightly atypical, are instead strangely unique. Canada’s Nocturnal Departure relies heavily on the old school, but the new school they’re peddling […]

Detherous – Unrelenting Malevolence (Blatantly Blatant Death Thrash)

  For a band that’s been around for almost a decade, I feel bad I didn’t know of Detherous until now. Why? Whatever, we’ll forget that mystery and instead focus on the blatant. This is blatantly death thrash. I’ve said it many times, sometimes you need your music as such. Just totally fooking obvious. I […]

Sedimentum – Suppuration Morphogénésiaque (Mucosal Death Metal)

  Nice I just came up with another new genre tag. I mean, let’s face it, these days there’s just too much out there and too much melding of styles to just say “death metal” and expect people to get it. So like, if we call Canada’s Sedimentum as such, where does that leave us? […]

Trembling Void – Demo I (Hodge Podge Raw Black Metal)

  Dang can’t remember the last time I reviewed a demo but here we go fools. Usually I avoid them because they’re too raw, not in the aesthetic sense, but the just trash sense. That and they’re often not given a release beyond a homemade cassette drop, unless they have something to prove, or a […]

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 […]

Outre-Tombe – Abysse Mortifère (Halloween Candy Death Metal)

  You know even though I see these guys categorized as osdm, really there’s more to them than that. Down with genre tags I say! This is the official end, I swear. Never going to tag again. F preconceptions. This is the future. Now then, Outre-Tombe, which come to me at a perfect time of […]

Azothyst – Blood of Dead God (Poisonous Blackened Death Metal)

  Well I knew this one was going to be a poisonous brain melt based on the skewed English in the title, Blood of Dead God. And then there’s the cover, which at once looks like classic etching, but is a conglomerate of disgust, which apparently is developed further in the jacket which is, quote […]

Perilaxe Occlusion – Raytraces of Death (Rasterized Death Metal or Something)

Perilaxe Occlusion – Raytraces of Death (Rasterized Death Metal or Something)

  Don’t be confused by my silly wording above (actually partially lifted directly from the band’s own description). This is not death metal made by computers but rather about computers. Does that confuse you? It should. It makes something like Raytraces of Death sound like a failed experiment. Is this an attempt to push boundaries […]

Expunged – Into Never Shall (Better Than Its Title Death Metal)

Expunged – Into Never Shall (Better Than Its Title Death Metal)

  Still trying to figure out what in the hell this album title even means. Like you never shall do something (probably important) and like you’re going into that, I think? Christ don’t leave me guessing at this esoteric shit! WTF. Thankfully, I don’t have to think about much else when it comes to Expunged. […]
