Ritual Chamber – The Pits of Tentacled Screams

Ritual Chamber – The Pits of Tentacled Screams

And then there was this.  Death metal anymore can really irritate us unless done right, and let’s be clear in case that implication wasn’t too your plebe mentality’s liking.  It’s often not.  It’s often trite and built on the same misogynist sliced-limb bullshit that was cool maybe thirty years ago.  No one cares about your […]

The Ugly – Decreation

The Ugly – Decreation

Interesting that this album would be titled as such, considering it’s rather a form of creation than destruction.  But before we get to that, let’s consider Swedish black metal.  Sweden has a rather interesting history in the genre, being that it, though rooted in Scandinavian tradition, is somewhat separate in how it developed.  You have […]

Interview with Usurpress (Take My Throne If You Please)

Ah, yes, time for another interview.  Always fun, aways informative, but this one in particular is the most dense in terms of information.  In fact it’s likely the most detailed answers we’ve ever received, which is always a good thing.  What if two hundred years from now someone wanted to know all there was about Usurpress […]

Generichrist – Taste of Death

We just love being confused, it’s good for our blood.  In fact, you know, write this down, if something’s hard to pin down with a genre and you feel like a hack when you pull out some band comparisons because you completely lack the writing skills to explain it otherwise, it’s going to be good. […]

Scarab – Serpents of the Nile

Maybe it’s just us, but doesn’t anyone else find it ridiculous when a band selects a theme to which they have absolutely no cultural connection?  There’s a difference in playing a certain style and pretending you’re something you’re not.  Seriously, think about it.  So when this one came in it had all the earmarks, hallmarks, […]

Usurpress – Ordained

This one’s been stewing in the old brain much like a fine, expensive ham.  Much like a ham we just purchased for $90 (that’s not a joke) that we made without realizing we had neither the time or energy to eat all that ham.  This one here, it sat in there, it heated, it melted, […]

Harvest Gulgaltha – I

Harvest Gulgaltha – I

Nothing beats mystery, especially when it comes to anything from the blackness.  Harvest Gulgaltha have only been around a few years, but even with only two releases under foot, including a demo, it sounds like they’ve been lurking in tombs for much longer than that.  Finding anything about them is near impossible.  They’re from somewhere […]

Horrified – Descent Into Putridity

You know what, now and then we like to just lean back around here and listen to something with full expectations of what it has to offer.  No secrets, no surprises, just something that tears and is completely open about its method of tearing.  Some flesh removed from your eardrums, sir?  Yes, please, that will […]

Inquisitor – Walpurgis – Sabbath of Lust

Damn it, these guys screwed up our whole system of article titles.  See, we start with the band name and then a dash, followed by album title.  So when the album title contains a dash within its boundaries we are doomed to looking like we’re reviewing a three-way split.  So, just for clarification, this is […]

Torturerama – It Begins At Birth EP

Death metal is probably the easiest genre to call.  When you see a band name, you usually know where they’re going with it and what to expect out of the quality.  You’ve probably heard it all, all the references to body parts, bodily fluids, ad nauseum, but not in the way they’re thinking.  And the […]
