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)

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)

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)

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)

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 […]

Quick Reviews – September 2017

Quick Reviews – September 2017

In case you missed it, we do special, short reviews now of stuff that's not up to the standards I set for full reviews. Meaning, the cover art sucks. This doesn't mean the music isn't any good, of course, but as you know, at least 1/4 of an album's presence is in its art, a […]

Horrified – Descent Into Putridity

You know what, now and then we like to just lean back around here and listen to something with full expectations of what it has to offer.  No secrets, no surprises, just something that tears and is completely open about its method of tearing.  Some flesh removed from your eardrums, sir?  Yes, please, that will […]

Decomposed: Devouring

Swedish death metal has had its score of greats, and we need not mention any of them here because it would just be pretentious.  Probably yawnsome, too, and we keep it underground, so underground.  Decomposed started out with a huge leap of faith, naming themselves with such an obvious term, one already taken by at […]
