Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

I've been hearing some great Greek metal as of late, and let's add this one to the list. Actually make that sort-of. Maybe a footnote, or a parenthetical mentioning, or maybe a margin scribble. First off, that name, Ectoplasma. It's possibly one of the greatest death metal band names ever conceived, even though they're not […]

Vaultwraith – Death is Proof of Satan’s Power (Olde Satan)

Vaultwraith – Death is Proof of Satan’s Power (Olde Satan)

I've been thinking on this one for several weeks now. As is usual around here, that means something is confusing or unclear. In this case it appears to be neither. I'm fully convinced this is an "on purpose" but yet have no actual proof as the band remains obscure and seems to have no live […]

apologoethia – Pillars (Spanish Black/Death Metal Please Be My Friend)

This is not the first time I've encountered amazing things from out of Spain. In fact I think this is like the shmillionth time this year. I want to just be good friends with any band from the country playing black or death metal. I've made several successful attempts to befriend such bands because, recently, […]

Aynsophar – Abysmal Secrets of Unknown (Too True)

I'm trying to think how I can best introduce this one without giving attention to the obvious. Okay let me just say it then. Aynsophar is the brainchild of Barbara Teleki, Hungarian-born guitar master and instrumentalist extreme. Yes, that's right, she's a woman. I mention this for only one reason. Far too often does one […]

EXPANDER – Endless Computer (Byte Metal)

I want to see more damn computers in underground music. I don't mean computers as instruments, we've had that awhile, I mean computers for aesthetics. It's time we begin to embrace our computer lives and accept that, yes, the machines are coming and will take over, and what better way than music that speaks of this coming […]

Cadaveric Incubator – Sermons of the Devouring Dead (WAKE UP)

Okay, everyone, it's time to wake the hell up. Get up! Out of your beds! Out of work! Stop whatever you're doing right the hell now and listen to some death metal crud. I just wanted something I didn't have to think about today. I've been doing too much thinking, and that can lead to bad things […]

Necrot – Blood Offerings (Another Baby Sacrifice)

Necrot – Blood Offerings (Another Baby Sacrifice)

I guess since the 1980s set the standard with baby slaying imagery, we need to keep that going so anyone just getting into death metal knows what it is. It doesn't bother me, no, I just sometimes would prefer deathers come up with new themes, because I pretty much chose this one for the aesthetics […]

Entrapment – Through Realms Unseen (Corpse Compactor Metal)

Good, finally, I needed some color in my art to break up all the damn black and white on the slider. Awesome art by Marald van Haasteren. And, you know, sometimes I feel like this decaying corpse right here yeah. The weight of everything pressing down on you, you release a groan, and you're basically like, […]

Contaminated – Final Man (Big Hulking Beast Metal)

I've been listening to this one way  too much. So much that I've been trying to convince the band to do a special, limited-run tape and shirt combo, but to no avail. Their powers are too great to accept my grovelling as worthy enough to be printed onto glorious celluloid music strips. But that's okay I […]
