Dipygus – S/T (Devonian Beast Sludge Death)

\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \

Dipygus – S/T (Devonian Beast Sludge Death)

  This is one of the few bands that came in the promos in the past year that really nails their themes and aesthetic to a degree that deserves attention alone. I’m not sure entirely how to define what you’re about to get out of this, either, but it’s a mixture of center of the […]

Martyrdoom – As Torment Prevails (Pneumoniac Death Doom)

Martyrdoom – As Torment Prevails (Pneumoniac Death Doom)

  For a name that sounds like a poor play on words at first, these guys can bring it. And talk about a comeback, phew! Having been absent from the scene for roughly six years, it’s almost as though they were reborn to reclaim the glory that was lost. I’ve heard some good death doom […]

Eternal Rot – Moribound (Zombified Grooving Death Doom)

Eternal Rot – Moribound (Zombified Grooving Death Doom)

  Here’s a band that remains the same yet sounds…different? Explain this to me, boys. Having reviewed Eternal Rot’s last one, Putridarium, and seeing the same style of art by the same artist (Mark Riddick), I expected, naturally, more of the same. Zombified, grooving death and doom, that’s what I mean. Dripping. Slipping. Sticking? And […]

Hexorcist – Evil Reaping Death (Old School Florida Death Metal Lol)

Hexorcist – Evil Reaping Death (Old School Florida Death Metal Lol)

  Oh great, here we have some more old school death metal. Can you take any more? Can I? Well, if it’s stuff like Miami Florida-based Hexorcist, then the answer is actually yes, believe it or not. But what does this type of sound entail? I could drop names to make it clear, but for […]

Altered Dead – Returned to Life (Rotting Death Groove)

Altered Dead – Returned to Life (Rotting Death Groove)

  I have this feeling now when I see a cover like this from any band in the “death metal” party (political reference) that it’s going to be a little unusual, a little against the grain, and also a little enjoyable, for once. Yes, I said it. Anyway, so Canada’s Altered Dead have been but […]

Morbid Messiah – Demoniac Paroxysm (So Messy)

Morbid Messiah – Demoniac Paroxysm (So Messy)

  This is one of those releases where you know exactly what you’re in for yet it cleverly hides its filth so it passes Facebook censorship with flying colors. Note, for example, the torn, nude corpse at the bottom. I can guarantee their stupid scraper won’t notice it even though nipple shots are a no-go. […]

Petrification – Hollow of the Void (Petrified Trees Metal)

Petrification – Hollow of the Void (Petrified Trees Metal)

It’s that time of year where I just need a little bit of this. Mainly because I hate poplar trees, see there’s one outside of my house and I just want to chop it the hell down. A tree joke? I’m not sure the band thought so hard about their name, see. The process of trees turning […]

Rotheads – Sewer Fiends (Satanic Rats)

Rotheads – Sewer Fiends (Satanic Rats)

Congratulations to Rotheads, the first Romanian band to be considered for a review on my trash site. In fact, this might be the first Romanian band to get a review on Deaf Sparrow in general, even going back to the older site prior to 2013. It takes a lot to get reviewed on here, I’ve been […]

Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

I’ve been hearing some great Greek metal as of late, and let’s add this one to the list. Actually make that sort-of. Maybe a footnote, or a parenthetical mentioning, or maybe a margin scribble. First off, that name, Ectoplasma. It’s possibly one of the greatest death metal band names ever conceived, even though they’re not […]

RUIN – Drown in Blood (Better Through Headphones)

RUIN – Drown in Blood (Better Through Headphones)

Okay, listen, bands, hey, if you’re picking a name, please, please make sure it hasn’t been goddamn picked already! I just don’t get that. Then you have to add (US), or whatever country, followed by state or territory, maybe even town if you’re dumb enough to stick with the name when there’s already a band going by […]
