Death Valley Driver: Graveyard Dead

Death Valley Driver: Graveyard Dead

When we first encountered these guys a year or so ago, the disc was too old to review and well, we didn't like it much anyway.  The cover was a huge WTF with some sort of skeletal Mexican wrestler holding a mic that looked more like a computer mouse and some ghost chick under his […]

Fist Fight in the Parking Lot: Year of the Ox

We first came across Fist Fight in the Parking Lot via their self-released EP about a year or so ago.  Verdict?  Awesome, but unfortunately we can't show you the proof because we're programming the archives so they work properly due to the fact they're in an older version of PHP no longer supported.  Take our […]

Eclectika: Lure of Ephemeral Beauty

Here's a lack of consistency if there ever was one.  Imagine a book put together without any paper or glue and it would be before you here.  Lure of Ephemeral Beauty opens with a pretty awesome keyboard romp, kind of like the Diablo II soundtrack with more military.  By the way it stomps and crushes skulls, […]

Ferrous Oxide: Devil’s Plaything

Ferrous Oxide is the girl you take home to mom on the first date and marry the same night.  Never before has there been such an unknown act with so much promise and skill in metal.  Sometimes we call things a real crying shame, but this is more than that, it's Victorian post-mortem black dress […]

ism: Demo

Don't be fooled by the powerviolence tag you'll find on the Bandcamp page we have nicely linked below, because there's not a bit of that in this.  So, sorry, no girlfriend-in-side-project cameos that were clearly to make sure an "evening of fun" took place, as much as you'd want that to happen.  But, hey, that's […]

No Trust: Unfound

There are lots of these two-piece bands around nowadays, maybe because talent is getting thin.  And it's not an easy thing to achieve, for a very simple reason.  Without some sort of depth, whether it be via samples, synth, orchestra, various layers over several takes, whatever it is, it often only survives a single listen […]

The Sun Through a Telescope: I Die Smiling

In recent years, drone doom, a genre spawned from the likes of Black Sabbath, Swans, and Melvins have swept into the scene with its colossal reverb and indiscernible screaming. Bands such as Khanate, Boris, and most iconically, Sunn O))), have spearheaded this movement becoming a prominent subgenre of metal. Unfortunately, the characteristics of drone doom […]

Occultist: Death Sigils

The 2012 demo, Hell By Our Hands, introduced a new force in the blackened crust scene. Occultist produced tracks of such extremity and intensity that you simply could not ignore them. The band first came to be when Leland Hoth (ex-Battlemaster) and Jim Reed (also of Thurifer) got in touch. Soon Nathaniel Acker also came […]

MirrorBlaze: Triumph of the Villain

Still kind of confused about this band name.  It's written as MirrorBlaze, just like that, but it appears in separation in their logo.  As to what it means, we'll leave that up to you.  MirrorBlaze are a three-piece thrash outfit from Bangladesh who banded together in 2007.  Triumph of the Villain is their first full-length, […]

Cadaveric Fumes Interview

Cadaveric Fumes Interview

This French band may have just delivered the best death metal recording of the year, OK, it's From 2012, but who cares? No self-respecting death metal fan can go without Macabre Exaltation, the demo from French band Cadaveric Fumes. It is too late to snap the tape demo, so I strongly suggest that if you […]
