Hoth: Oathbreaker

Hoth: Oathbreaker

Always give credit to self-released bands who put this much effort into it.  Hoth took the time to write a thorough promo sheet, including a frakkin sticker to sweeten the pot.  We've encountered them before, though Cole didn't like them very much, primarily because they're self-proclaimed Star Wars fanatics and he didn't like their, let's […]

Devoid: The Invasion EP

Only the truly knowledgeable of us know that India produces death metal.  And only the truly underground of those who are knowledgeable know that India can produce good death metal.  It's sad because several of their homegrown power teams are actually quite good, others not so much, but that's to be expected anywhere.  Transcending Obscurity […]

Decomposed: Devouring

Swedish death metal has had its score of greats, and we need not mention any of them here because it would just be pretentious.  Probably yawnsome, too, and we keep it underground, so underground.  Decomposed started out with a huge leap of faith, naming themselves with such an obvious term, one already taken by at […]

Prostitute Disfigurement: From Crotch to Crown

Prostitute Disfigurement: From Crotch to Crown

Yay!!! Another cool death metal release that breaks new territory with such themes as rape, serial killing, and murder.  Prostitute Disfigurement hails from the Netherlands, and granted we don't know how quickly things change over there, but given the great strides death metal has made lately these guys no longer have an excuse to sound […]

Noothgrush/Coffins: Split LP

Any veteran of the doom metal scene is familiar with these two names, without a doubt.  That saves us a lot of time, see, because where we'd normally spend an introductory paragraph talking background and bio, we can now use that space to write pointless nothingness like this sentence, which you will still read because […]

Double Header: Kaotoxin

Ah yes, here we go people, it's time for two-in-one, it's time for two for the price of one, it's time for two in your eyes, two in your ears, two in whatever other orifice you have two of.  That's the whole purpose of the double-header, friends, we give you a quick, meaty dose of […]

The Return of Pungent Stench (or something like it)

You know what's great about the internet?  We'll tell you what's great, you can connect with almost anyone you could think of if you know where to look.  It's amazing, some of us around here grew up with these guys, Pungent Stench, and at least one of us has memories of listening to Been Caught Buttering while […]

Dementia Senex – Heartworm

Dementia Senex – Heartworm

In a strange way, this EP is so, so, so, so refreshing. This winter has brought forth few notable releases to attention leading to a music slump of sorts. This is a light in the darkness. Heartworm is three tracks long clocking a little over 17 minutes and combines death metal, sludge, and post-hardcore into a fearsome […]

Pestilence: Obsideo

Pestilence: Obsideo

All too often, metal songwriters fail to understand nuance and dynamic. One of the reasons it becomes difficult to navigate the waters of the extreme is that, frequently, and for whatever reason, the people creating this kind of material are of the opinion that if you constantly deluge your audience with “br00tz” they’ll be so […]

Broken Hope: Omen of Disease

Broken Hope: Omen of Disease

Broken Hope was one of the earlier death metal acts, hailing from Chicago, and really creating an entire scene in their wake, a critical step towards today's toss-around term of 'brutal'.  They've been around a lot longer than most acts, and they have the scars to prove it, and loss.  Imagine everyone's surprise, after the […]
