Der Fan / The Fan (West German New Wave Horror Thriller)

Der Fan / The Fan (West German New Wave Horror Thriller)

  You ever go to a concert and see that lost soul in the corner with the faraway thousand-yard stare? Yeah, I think you have…this movie is about one of those. Long unseen for many years aside from those of us unlucky enough to discover it in the Adult section of the video store (where it snuck out under the name Trance) and scholars such as Chas […]

Abythic – Eden of the Doomed (No Blue Balls Haunting German Death Metal)

  Dang, shit’s tight, and strangely there aren’t many reviews for it even though I’m a bit late on this one. Plus I normally avoid EPs, mainly because I rarely see the point in them. It’s like, you got a few good songs together, why not just fooking wait until you have more and let […]

Dauþuz – Vom schwarzen Schmied – Bergkgesænge (Mining Black Metal Works Wow)

  Spectacular. Not only do we have here a band reinvestigating itself after only a few months, let alone at all, but we have a true achievement in the “niche effect,” which will hereby refer to any bands attempting to work bizarre themes into their sound. Usually tragic, here it’s epic. When so much has […]

Luzifer – Iron Shackles (German Birthright Heavy Metal)

  Nice. I say this not necessarily because this particular release is the greatest thing ever, but it’s definitely the greatest promo of this week. Man, yet again, I got slammed by some of the most banal submissions ever. Horrid cover art, or music so derivative and stale I thought it was old emails from […]

Sacrifixion – Shower Me in Death (Nein Umloot Death Thrash)

  I like all these combo genres recently. Actually been awhile, but better to say recently I’ve been getting a better grasp of how they sound because I’m a n00b. Actually no I’m not, I know what I’m talking about so stfu. This is death thrash. That would be death metal ploos thrash metal, without […]

Baxaxaxa – Catacomb Cult (Hard to Spell German Black Metal)

  Goddamnit these guys have probably the worst name to spell. I mean, I dig it, but Christ I can’t spell it. I screwed it up every freaking time and had to rely on cut-and-paste to get anywhere. Thanks guys… It doesn’t matter anyway, because Baxaxaldkjalskdjfawlkef are absolute murder. Originally crushing the German scene in […]

Casket – Urn (It’s in the Details Death Metal)

Casket – Urn (It’s in the Details Death Metal)

  Here we have a seasoned band adjusted to the level of “very.” In death metal that means one of two things. One, you never learned how to deviate and develop, or two, you tried but failed to grasp modern death metal’s current trends and just sound geriatric. Germany’s Casket, to our delight, are neither […]

Archaic Thorn – Eradication (Nihilistic Death Metal for Lunch)

  Lunch time freaks. Catching up on some backlog I was first going to pass on this German death metal trio, but those echo vocals had me going too strong to let it pass me by. Archaic Thorn certainly have a more clever take on the anti-Christian stuff by only so slightly referring to it […]

Omegavortex – Black Abomination Spawn (Exactly Like Their Moniker Blackened Death Metal)

Omegavortex – Black Abomination Spawn (Exactly Like Their Moniker Blackened Death Metal)

  Lol these guys. I see any reference to voids, chasms, and generally anything that suggests a gaping pit of despair and disorder, I know it’s going to be killer. This goes for any genre but blackened death metal? Yeah, works there for sure. It’s almost a requirement. Germany’s Omegavortex are the true curtain to […]
