EXPANDER – Endless Computer (Byte Metal)

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)

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 […]

Replacire – Do Not Deviate (Or So They Claim)

Here's something I'm pretty sure of now. If I say the opposite of basically everyone else out there pretending to be a critic, it's correct. End of story. Especially with technical death metal, which, yes, this is. Boston's Replacire I have to give credit to for staying so true to their look. Thus, Do Not Deviate […]

RUIN – Drown in Blood (Better Through Headphones)

Okay, listen, bands, hey, if you're picking a name, please, please make sure it hasn't been goddamn picked already! I just don't get that. Then you have to add (US), or whatever country, followed by state or territory, maybe even town if you're dumb enough to stick with the name when there's already a band going by […]

Quick Reviews – September 2017

Quick Reviews – September 2017

In case you missed it, we do special, short reviews now of stuff that's not up to the standards I set for full reviews. Meaning, the cover art sucks. This doesn't mean the music isn't any good, of course, but as you know, at least 1/4 of an album's presence is in its art, a […]

Sangue – S/T (Yeah, Listen To This One)

Knowing that the former drummer of Pungent Stench was part of this gang, I figured it had to be good. That's kind of strange to say about a drummer, because, well, they drum. What else can you say? If you can pound good enough, no one really pays attention, but Rector Stench had this style […]
