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

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 […]

Abysmal Grief – Blasphema Secta (Ouija Metal)

I was really drawn to the art of this one, by the current guitarist of Abysmal Grief Regen Graves, and I also wanted to give it a shot because I'm pretty sure I've never reviewed anything from Sun & Moon Records or Terror from Hell Records before. If I did it was before the new […]

Druid Lord – Grotesque Offerings (Slow Metal)

I remember when I first came across these guys, back in 2010 when they released their first album, and that was three years before the new future of Deaf Sparrow with this updated site you're currently wasting your time on. Though you won't find the old review here, as it's stuck in FTP on the […]

Drug Honkey – Cloak of Skies

Doom metal is a genre close to collapse, I'm more and more sure of it. It has as much redundancy currently as NY hardcore and baby boomer punk, so think about it, do you really want to keep listening to it? It's far too hesitant to change when change is needed, and far too comfortable […]

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, […]

khost – Governance SPECIAL EDITION

Well, folks, I mean autocrats, if you didn't notice before because you're new, or because it's been so long, I'm finally getting back into production again. Deaf Sparrow has functioned as a limited-edition label before, but it's been some time since my last release, which was a special cassette version of the album Ordained by Usurpress. […]

CURSUS – S/T (Like, Where’s the Bass Maaannn?)

Yeah listen. Yo. Making music is hard. Trying to do something new in music, even harder. Trying to do something without something expected, waaayyy harrrrddder. Every genre has expectations looming over it, and I don't mean just metal in general or all the kabillions of subsubgenres we have now, I mean for anything. For doom metal, […]
