Rise to the Sky – Every Day, A Funeral (Super Good and Still Super Slow Funeral Doom)

  Ah let us dampen the super bright weather we’ve been having with some funeral doom yay! One of the most difficult genres within the doom world, I’ve found very few bands skilled enough to give it soul I’d call super. The primary issue has always been that the subgenre is known for its extremely […]

Concilivm – A Monument in Darkness (Alchemical Death Metal)

  Heavenly God the end is near with this one phew. Though not the first Chilean band I’ve encountered, nor the first band summoning such disgust, Concilivm is definitely one of the new greats, and proof that their homeland is one of the hottest pits of corrupted metal in the world these days. Caustic, infectious, […]

Mental Devastation – The Delusional Mystery of the Self Part I (What Thrash is Supposed to Sound Like)

  Phew, now this title is sure a fooking mouthful. Maybe that’s why it took me so long to finish this review, I was still reading it lol. Actually, I waited because to be honest most of the December promo pool was absolute garbage. This one came in rather early so I sat on it, […]

Black Ceremonial Kult – Crowned in Chaos (Murderous Blackened Death Metal)

  Woah boy is this good. Yep, it will murder you. Yet another killer release to add to the “Chilean blackened freaks” category I’ve found much delight in in the past decade. What are the other bands I can recall? Who cares, because this is MFin Black Ceremonial Kult fools, so let’s stay focused on […]

Lucifer’s Hammer – The Trip (WTF Do You Want? Dark Fantasy Metal)

  This is such a pleasant release. I’m not sure how else to begin except by saying WTF do you want? Take a band from Chile, which named themselves after a Larry Niven book (and were not the first to do it), toss in fantasy, sci-fi generalities, and old school heavy metal, and you get […]

Demoniac – So It Goes (Blackened Thrash Jazz Woah)

Demoniac – So It Goes (Blackened Thrash Jazz Woah)

  Ah, here comes a band that’s far more clever than most. Blackened thrash usually has a clear aesthetic, but Chile’s Demoniac abandon the established foundations for something newer. It’s not just the look, though that cover is just sick, nor is it the more philosophical title of So It Goes, Demoniac also incorporates unexpected […]

Cenotafio – Larvae Tedeum Teratos (Chile’s Funeral Shroud)

Cenotafio – Larvae Tedeum Teratos (Chile’s Funeral Shroud)

  Man what’s up in the Chilean scene of black stuff? It’s so disgusting in sound the more the submissions come in the more I’m sure there’s a real movement that should probably officially unite. Anyway, Cenotafio (such a great band name) come from there, and like a number of their brethren combine the 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 […]

Quick Reviews – September 2017

In case you missed it, we do special, short reviews now of stuff that’s not up to the standards I set for full reviews. Meaning, the cover art sucks. This doesn’t mean the music isn’t any good, of course, but as you know, at least 1/4 of an album’s presence is in its art, a […]
