Fiend – Seeress (Doompth Metal)

  Yo I just came up with a new term: "doompth metal." At first read that sounds horrible, like a new taunt. You doompthus! That, another new word, is definitely a taunt, but doompth is not, sometimes. Okay let me be honest here it kind of is. Truth be told it's all I could come […]

Essenz – Manes Impetus (Pandering Black Metal)

  Manes Impetus, the latest from Berlin, Germany’s Essenz, is nearly an hour long which is fine if the goal is to produce a musical journey encapsulating the musical anguish of the forebears, artistic sadism, and creative passions. Aesthetic value 10/10, but we don't score like that here whoops. This one progresses through some fairly […]

Malsanctum – S/T (Two Minutes to Funeral Doom’s Funeral)

  Well, here it is, likely the first time something from Iron Bonehead Productions actually depresses me in the other way. I prefer the "why does the human race exist?" type of depression, but this is more of a "why was this album released?" sadness. Now, please pause, for I have already started this on an […]

The Evil – S/T (Non-Evil, Mask-Wearing Doom Metal)

  I saw the masks and I wanted to enjoy this thoroughly. The cover, by Fernando Drowned of The Most Destructive Art, had me mask-loving, But, as it turns out I only enjoyed the music partially. There's something less threatening about doomers wearing masks on stage than you find with blackened death metal or black […]

CASSETTE ASSAULT (Stuff I’ve Been Sitting Upon)

It's been a long time since I've done one of these, and that's primarily because of a special app I'm seriously working on for the site where I can give some press to stuff I don't review on in this way anymore. Bad art, or just ehhh releases, will all have their due eventually. Sometimes this […]

Ghastly – Death Velour (Finnish Death Metal Tho)

Man that Finnish death metal sound. How I forgot! How I could go on about it forever, though this is only the second band in memory I liked from Finland. Out of any country plugging the death metal hole till bursting, Sweden is the one that consistently gets the attention. Not because it's all so good, […]

Ilsa – Corpse Fortress (Antifa But Not Nazi Metal)

You know I can't remember the last time I heard of a band coming from Washington DC I really cared about. I can't remember the last promo I received from any band in the area. The place always seemed a musical pit of despair, at least the last time I wandered the streets. All I […]

LOWERED – S/T (Surprise Gimme A Smile Metal)

I love surprises. Not like "oh it's my birthday today I forgot," I mean things that come out of nowhere and just make you smile goddamn it. Since I rarely receive hardcopy submissions anymore my surprises come in the form of email promos with great art and music that just makes you smile goddamn it. You wouldn't […]

Worship khost – Metallic Pummeling Rituals

When I started to figure out how to better handle this site and submissions, part of that process was creating a feature called "Worship," which is part interview, but also more. I also consider a particular band's most recent release, which is going to be something I score at the highest tier of the Deaf […]
