Maligner – Attraction to Annihilation (Everything Should Be Burned)

  Lol this is such a goddamn fitting album to review today, it really is. If you're not aware, this site is so apolitical you'll swear off any potential party affiliation or political worldview immediately. Keep that crap out of here, unless it's to start flame wars in the comments so the site gets more hits. […]

Crawl – Rituals (Sweden Does It Again, Basically)

  I feel like I've been getting a lot of Swedish metal the past few months. Actually, it's probably more than I've noticed it since it's been pretty damn good in general. I really need to stop with the italics joke, so let's see if I can make it through the rest of this. Really I don't need […]

Demise – De la Manipulación A la Ignorancia (Guerrilla Metal RETURNS)

  Anything from South America that is metal and has at least one mask-wearing member I like to now call "Guerrilla Metal," because I feel like I'm soaking in a jungle and being shot upon by many machine guns. And I just can't get enough of all of these bands referring to their following as "hordas." […]

SIEGE COLUMN – INFERNO DEATHPASSION (New Jersey IN THE FLESH)

  I rarely specify where exactly a band is from in the US unless there's some well-known association with a genre and particular area, city, or whatever. Also I guess that depends on state size, right? Like most people will just say Rhode Island instead of specifying a city, outside of the pretentious wonderland of […]

CASSETTE ASSAULT (Stuff I’ve Been Sitting Upon)

It's been a long time since I've done one of these, and that's primarily because of a special app I'm seriously working on for the site where I can give some press to stuff I don't review on in this way anymore. Bad art, or just ehhh releases, will all have their due eventually. Sometimes this […]

Butcher ABC – North of Hell (ABCs of Goregrind)

  I know I've heard of this Japanese grind machine before, this Butcher ABC, I just can't remember where. Then again, there are a ton of bands in Japan just like this, but this particular gathering of grind maniacs is one of the oldest. They've been around for almost 25 years now, and that's an amazing […]

Lychgate – The Contagion in Nine Steps (Scholarly Metal)

  Nice, that cover by the totally unknown Michael Guy is the perfect lead-in because I've been waiting to use the word 'scholarly' in reference to metal so I can feel like I'm above everyone else. Actually I already have presented myself as such, but this makes it official, and I should get an honorary […]

Our Place of Worship is Silence – With Inexorable Suffering (Already Out of Space)

  You know when the band's name and album title have taken up nearly your entire post title and take more than a minute to write it's not going to be good. It just reeks of that sticky, foul kind of pretentiousness that ruins far too many bands. Note to those who dare tread this path, if […]

Inisans – Transition (F It Metal)

  I have no idea what in the world Inisans means, and I don't care. Don't bother searching, either, because nothing will help you, trust me. I have skills man, don't bother I did it already. So I don't care, there's no reason to care, and Google can F off about asking me whether I meant […]

Morgengrau – Blood Oracle (Out of Ideas Metal)

  Death metal. What else can one say about it? Nothing really, unless the genre learns to move along, and some bands have done that for sure. But far too many are stuck still doing the old thing. Rickety, crotchety, drooling. The old school style, with new production, is that what it takes? What solace […]
