Occult Burial – Burning Eerie Lore (Sacrificing Saplings Occult Thrash)

  I knew this would be good when I saw the band photo with three dudes sacrificing a with torches, or it may have been a sapling, and one is looking all spooky while in the process of growing balder and totally doesn’t give a shit if you notice. Thrash has proven one of the […]

Häxenzijrkell – Die Nachtseite (Halloween Black Metal is Good)

Grave Spirit – The Beast Unburdened by Flesh (Crud Love)

I was pretty sure this band had some sort of roots in South or Central America, but I just can’t figure it out for sure damn it. It just has that nasty, crude, but totally awesome sound to it. Lo-fi, yet listenable, shrieking, harsh, cymbals that sound like empty pie pans, I mean this has got it […]
