Essenz – Manes Impetus (Pandering Black Metal)

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 […]

Assumption – Absconditus (Don’t Try Too Hard Metal)

What a curious name for a metal band. I can tell you I had several assumptions about this before going into it, like it was probably black metal. Bad assumption, but it was definitely dark and depressing, which is assumed further by the doom/death tag these guys from Italy carry. Uh oh, it's an Italian metal band […]
