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. […]

Grave Spirit – The Beast Unburdened by Flesh (Crud Love)

I was pretty sure this band had some sort of roots in South or Central America, but I just can't figure it out for sure damn it. It just has that nasty, crude, but totally awesome sound to it. Lo-fi, yet listenable, shrieking, harsh, cymbals that sound like empty pie pans, I mean this has got it […]

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. […]

Infected Syren – S/T (Cypriot Punk)

I'm glad I can finally say I reviewed a band from Cyprus, because the adjective "Cypriot" just sounds so great. So, here we have, for the first time ever, a Cypriot Punk outfit, though just "punk" is not nearly enough to describe them. This particular one, Infected Syren (also the band's name), was further down my queue […]

Revenger – The New Mythology Vol. 1 (Singer Vacancy, Do Not Apply)

  Now here's a curious thing. So curious I'm not sure I've ever discussed it. First off, let's get the bio puke out of the way. Revenger come from Canada, and I don't recall ever having heard of them until this release. As usual, you know me, the cover is what first got my attention, […]

IPERYT – The Patchwork Gehinnom

IPERYT – The Patchwork Gehinnom

This one really surprised me. I had heard some whispers of Poland's IPERYT (which translates from Polish to mustard gas) before, but the genre of "industrial metal" has all but buried itself. Why? There's been a big push towards the so-called "organic" in music, including all forms of metal. This is really part of the […]

Hellish God – The Evil Emanations (You’ve Heard This Metal)

I really wanted to slam to this one. For two reasons. One, the art kills, two I have yet to give such praise to a death metal band from Italy. Let's start with the art. Though not atypical, or even moderately unique, the cover of The Evil Emanations, by Adi Christianize of Dechristianize Art, is so […]
