Deathrite – Revelation of Chaos

Deathrite – Revelation of Chaos

The start of the week, the start of work, or the start of not doing work, or not getting up, or hating everything until Thursday when it all seems bright again. Until then, work, work, and work.  But if you're at work, what are you doing on this site?  That's easy to explain because you, like […]

Ur Draugr – With Hunger Undying

Ur Draugr – With Hunger Undying

I don't know if anyone consistently follows or reads my reviews but if you have been, you'll notice that most have been very positive. Unfortunately, I don't often bother with bands I'm unfamiliar with unless Stan sends them my way (and I like the genre). So in an effort to review a band I've never […]

Reverie – Bliss

Sometimes you have to wonder who selects the genre tags on Encyclopaedia Metallum.  Is it the bands themselves or some random fools?  Seriously, we'd like to know, because we've never had to do such a thing ourselves, so not knowing we'd like an explanation.  The primary reason is it often seems so very wrong upon […]

Howls of Ebb – The Marrow Veil

It's quite likely, if you're reading this or have been here before, that you're a weirdo.  That's how people usually end up at Deaf Sparrow, or at least checking out the things we cover, whether or not they pay attention to us in particular.  The underground is filled with total weirdos, people on the outskirts […]

Adversarial – Death, Endless Nothing and the Black Knife of Nihilism

Adversarial – Death, Endless Nothing and the Black Knife of Nihilism

Well, this band has already started off on their path of adversariness with an album title that's probably going to break our system coding.  First for its length, and if that doesn't do it, then for its meaning.  Nihilism, the rejection of principles, especially moral principles or those stemming from religion, the rejection of love, […]

Autokrator – S/T

There are certain people out there giving us a wealth of idiocy to criticize, and it's great because we can still seem creative.  Let it be known that anyone who references Star Wars in a review of any metal band, unless it's a metal band with a focus on Star Wars, is a complete toolbox, […]

Mefitic – Woes of Mortal Devotion

Mefitic – Woes of Mortal Devotion

This is such an awesome name for a band, even though it's a spelling variation.  Who cares?  It sounds so Goddamned vile it pleases one to speak it aloud to others.  To what are you listening, friend?  Mefitic.  To which they shirk in horror, knowing only from the staticy bile coming from your ears that […]

Cinis – Subterranean Antiquity

Death metal, how does it survive?  Why do we ask that question is likely your own question right now, but it's quite easy to answer.  We ask because the number of similar bands out there is astounding, at times, and it grows every month.  But if they're all so similar, how can that be?  Well, […]

Chaos Echoes – Transient

Chaos Echoes – Transient

Now it's time to take things to the level where few can reach.  The hands of most are weak, their joints feeble, they lack the inner strength to pull themselves up from the middle of the giant web of metal into realms of pure chaos.  Upon these upper, silken strands things are much different, all […]

Nemesium – Sentient Cognizance

Nemesium – Sentient Cognizance

What is it with technical/melodic metal and artwork usually dense with organic, Gigeresque imagery?  Swirling masses of thorn organs, smokestacks, skulls made from metal, gears, and general complexity always seems to be the norm.  We suppose that makes sense considering what this type of metal is, but is it required?  Must you have artwork that […]
