Fractal Generator – Convergence (Experimental Blackened Math Metal)

  Ah, this reminds me of how much I loved…calculus. You heard me right. I loved that complex combination of symbols that looked like fucking magic wards to the uninitiated. The fools! If only they understood the true depth of calc! So with a band referencing math that even PhDs have trouble explaining, and titling […]

Hammers of Misfortune – Overtaker (Experimental Prog Metal to Please the Pretentious)

  This was so good I cried even. Okay, maybe not that, but damn. But, first, we got some tags to get out of the way to show you how good this is because by definition it shouldn’t have been at all. We got progressive metal, we got old school thrash, we got nwobhm-styled ramblings, […]

Lychgate – The Contagion in Nine Steps (Scholarly Metal)

  Nice, that cover by the totally unknown Michael Guy is the perfect lead-in because I’ve been waiting to use the word ‘scholarly’ in reference to metal so I can feel like I’m above everyone else. Actually I already have presented myself as such, but this makes it official, and I should get an honorary […]

Reverorum ib Malacht – Im Ra Distare (STFU Title’s Too Long)

  I’m, so sick of the hype surrounding this album and I’m going to be as brief as possible, but trust me, it’s goddamn hard not to go off. Practically the only reason I’m reviewing it is because people just can’t STFU about it. I don’t even really like the cover. Oh, wow, some anti-Christian […]

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 […]

Autokrator – Hammer of the Heretics (Limited Edition Cassette)

Ready for our next ritual? Well shut up because here it is anyway. As you know, I thoroughly enjoy music that breaks boundaries and isolates me as much as possible. Enter a favorite of mine, the band Autokrator, whose debut full-length I reviewed back in 2015 only a few months after the new site launched. […]

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. […]

Interview with CHAOS ECHŒS (Esoteric and Arcane)

In our selection of only the finest, most bizarre, and most darkened of music, we sometimes find it pertinent to interview what we consider the best.  Those of the underground sometimes rejected by the vpper crvst for being so against the grain their skin is rubbed raw to the underlayer.  A fine film of blood […]
