Infected Syren – S/T (Cypriot Punk)

I'm glad I can finally say I reviewed a band from Cyprus, because the adjective "Cypriot" just sounds so great. So, here we have, for the first time ever, a Cypriot Punk outfit, though just "punk" is not nearly enough to describe them. This particular one, Infected Syren (also the band's name), was further down my queue […]

Holocausto – War Metal Massacre

Where can I even begin with this album, which I've listened to at least three times a week for the past four months? I started where I usually do, by looking around at what others have to say, after I've already formed my own opinion. I often find myself alone, or partially, constantly saddened by […]

Scientist – 10100II00101

Recently I haven't had much willpower to do any reviews of new bands. I've been too busy embracing Mories from Gnaw Their Tongues, Cloak of Altering, and Aderlating among many other bands as my God. Somehow he keeps churning out great releases like his split with Dragged Into Sunlight and Cloak of Altering's latest release, Manifestation.  As […]

Execució – Demo

After all the work we've been doing recently, there came a time when enough was enough but circumstances made it pertinent to keep going anyway and push through the pain.  When life gets you down, when work never ends, when you have to finish things in a day you normally do over the course of […]

Cassette Assault – Metal and Noise

Get your guns, get your gurls, or mens, and prepare, for a....cassette assault!  If you're new around here, this is when we check out a series of four different cassettes in the same review.  Sometimes from the same label, maybe the same band, but this time we're doing a set of tapes from four different […]

Deaf Sparrow’s Top Metal Vocalists You Never Heard Of

We know you all love them, we know you all need them, articles about something other than single albums.  Well here you are, a team effort, even.  There are certainly hundreds of vocalists we could have chosen from, but of course we had to whittle down to a pathetic, seeping stump so all of you […]

SCUMRISE!: Super Hits EP

Finland has a rather vibrant underground, but most of what we've heard here is of the hardcore variety, for some reason.  Yes, believe it or not, Finnish hardcore is a "a thing," as it were.  Why do we question your belief?  Because who associates Finland with anything but trolls and poorly-written troll metal, right?  Well, […]

Wild Throne: Blood Maker

Yeah, sometimes bands can blow you the feck away.  Like totally.  Like you look behind you and where you expect to at least see limbs there's barely a spray of blood and miniscule chunks.  If there are chunks they're practically the same splatter as the rest of it.  Blood Maker comes via way of Brutal Panda […]

Secrets of the Sky Interview

  The best part of reviewing metal bands is finding gems here and there that help define and refine your taste in music. Secrets of the Sky with their album, To Sail Black Waters, has become an essential part of my winter playlist. With a little under 3,000 "Likes" on Facebook, they are still relatively underground but […]

Double Header: Kaotoxin

Ah yes, here we go people, it's time for two-in-one, it's time for two for the price of one, it's time for two in your eyes, two in your ears, two in whatever other orifice you have two of.  That's the whole purpose of the double-header, friends, we give you a quick, meaty dose of […]
