Ghastly – Death Velour (Finnish Death Metal Tho)

Man that Finnish death metal sound. How I forgot! How I could go on about it forever, though this is only the second band in memory I liked from Finland. Out of any country plugging the death metal hole till bursting, Sweden is the one that consistently gets the attention. Not because it's all so good, […]

VAHRZAW – Husk (Like Warsaw But Less Metal)

Good one guys, going with the spelling variant on a Slavic city, in this case Warsaw, or at least I assumed that was the idea (I was wrong). And since just everyone is talking about it, let's consider for a second that scray [sic] art by the oh-so-great Luciana Nedelea, whose work you've probably encountered quite a […]

Ilsa – Corpse Fortress (Antifa But Not Nazi Metal)

You know I can't remember the last time I heard of a band coming from Washington DC I really cared about. I can't remember the last promo I received from any band in the area. The place always seemed a musical pit of despair, at least the last time I wandered the streets. All I […]

The Grotesquery – The Lupine Anathema (Big Words For Werewolves)

I'm trying to think of the last time I experienced werewolves and death metal coming together for a love child. Maybe it never happened, but I feel like it had to at some point. Well, if not, or if it did and I forgot, time for some new memories. The members of The Grotesquery are separated […]

Slugdge – Esoteric Malacology (Don’t Trick Me Please)

I've got a great idea for a horror film title, get this: When Things Get Pretentious. It's only going to scare true underground junkies (autocrats if you forgot the term), but it will be absolutely terrifying. You are about to witness, a film, about how the best and most cutting-edge of sounds can become, horribly pompous. That can […]

Worship khost – Metallic Pummeling Rituals

When I started to figure out how to better handle this site and submissions, part of that process was creating a feature called "Worship," which is part interview, but also more. I also consider a particular band's most recent release, which is going to be something I score at the highest tier of the Deaf […]

Petrification – Hollow of the Void (Petrified Trees Metal)

It's that time of year where I just need a little bit of this. Mainly because I hate poplar trees, see there's one outside of my house and I just want to chop it the hell down. A tree joke? I'm not sure the band thought so hard about their name, see. The process of trees turning […]

Assumption – Absconditus (Don’t Try Too Hard Metal)

What a curious name for a metal band. I can tell you I had several assumptions about this before going into it, like it was probably black metal. Bad assumption, but it was definitely dark and depressing, which is assumed further by the doom/death tag these guys from Italy carry. Uh oh, it's an Italian metal band […]

Beastiality – Worshippers of Unearthly Perversions (Let’s See This Get Promoted)

My promotion for this album is probably going to get shot down immediately because of the band's name, but that's the reality of the underground. Filthy names, little exposure because of filthy names. Who would want to name their band after sex acts with animals anyway even if the spelling is slightly changed? It still […]

Autokrator – Hammer of the Heretics (Limited Edition Cassette)

Ready for our next ritual? Well shut up because here it is anyway. As you know, I thoroughly enjoy music that breaks boundaries and isolates me as much as possible. Enter a favorite of mine, the band Autokrator, whose debut full-length I reviewed back in 2015 only a few months after the new site launched. […]
