Lutharö – Wings of Agony (Melodic Toddler Death Metal)

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)

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)

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 […]

Drofnosura – Voidfever (Sludge Chunk of Depression)

Drofnosura – Voidfever (Sludge Chunk of Depression)

  Now and again I come across something like Voidfever and I'm like "where did everyone go?" As the skeletal-faced, hooded thing on the cover by Dusty Ray devours the eyes and pulls inward you become introspective, sullen, and separated. Is it just me listening to this? Why though? It troubles me when a great […]

Chong Wizard – The Reality Stone

Chong Wizard – The Reality Stone

  There’s something far more potent lurking in Canada (Vancouver, BC specifically) than mere moose, hockey, or maple syrup. What could possibly hit harder than those two? Why, it’s none other than your friendly neighborhood DJ Chong Wizard, of course, who's probably Deadpool's favorite hip hop producer yo. While a comic book motif isn’t exactly […]

Malsanctum – S/T (Two Minutes to Funeral Doom’s Funeral)

Malsanctum – S/T (Two Minutes to Funeral Doom’s Funeral)

  Well, here it is, likely the first time something from Iron Bonehead Productions actually depresses me in the other way. I prefer the "why does the human race exist?" type of depression, but this is more of a "why was this album released?" sadness. Now, please pause, for I have already started this on an […]

Délétère – De Horae Leprae (Canada’s Best Black Metal Band Do You Hear Me?)

Délétère – De Horae Leprae (Canada’s Best Black Metal Band Do You Hear Me?)

  That's right, I'm going straight literal with the title to this review, because it's true do you hear me? Don't even bother tossing names of other Canadian black metal outfits at me, just don't. Délétère is the only one I want to hear about from now on do you hear me? I actually reviewed a previous release by them […]

Profane Order – Tightened Noose of Sanctimony (Demo Metal)

Profane Order – Tightened Noose of Sanctimony (Demo Metal)

I almost started a new feature with this one, covering only demos, but I so rarely get any that I'd even consider reviewing I figured eh, let's just do this as the usual apocryphal review. Profane Order you've probably never heard of, but you likely will in the coming years, depending on what they do. […]
