TRUCHŁO STRZYGI – Pora Umierać (Polish Death Smash Punk)

  Finally some punk I can legitimately review without feeling like I'm forcing it so this site seems diverse. Leave it to the Polish underground for it to happen, as typical punk submissions are too oiboi for me. Yes, there are also oigirls, but the term doesn't have the rhyme pattern my exquisite reviewing skills demand, […]

IPERYT – The Patchwork Gehinnom

This one really surprised me. I had heard some whispers of Poland's IPERYT (which translates from Polish to mustard gas) before, but the genre of "industrial metal" has all but buried itself. Why? There's been a big push towards the so-called "organic" in music, including all forms of metal. This is really part of the […]

Blaze of Perdition – Near Death Revelations

It's always tragic when a band has to experience death, not simply screaming about it or symbolizing it via music.  When real death hits anyone, how to cope?  Finding life in those ashes can be difficult for most, nearly impossible for others, if possible at all.  For music it can be a total tragedy.  Certain […]

Cinis – Subterranean Antiquity

Death metal, how does it survive?  Why do we ask that question is likely your own question right now, but it's quite easy to answer.  We ask because the number of similar bands out there is astounding, at times, and it grows every month.  But if they're all so similar, how can that be?  Well, […]

Abusiveness – Bramy Nawii

Well this has been a week of Eastern Europe, hasn't it?  In fact, we have a backlog of tons of stuff from the region, especially Poland.  Poland is an interesting bridge, as it were, between the East and the West.  Though Eastern Europe was once considered part of Europe long ago, now it's still considered […]

Outre – Ghost Chants

Modern-day black metal usually has clear markers; you can look at how it presents itself and know immediately what to expect.  This is especially true with post-black metal, where alterations to original themes are sometimes so unusual each band almost becomes a separate genre in itself, perhaps a separate country, or better to say planet, […]

Embrional – The Devil Inside

This is just a personal thing, but damn this title reminds one of that critically panned should-have-bombed film The Devil Inside from 2012.  Luckily this has nothing to do with that.  So why even mention it?  Sometimes things just happen around here, and just as we accept the random, so must you, or there is no […]

Sigihl – Trauermärsche (And a Tango Upon the World’s Grave)

Sat on this one for awhile.  But it was much unlike the usual type of sitting.  It wasn't like sitting on your easy chair, or a lawn chair, or an armchair, it was more like a chair of nails, such as would have been used during the Witch Craze.  This would be a useful analogy […]

Doombringer – The Grand Sabbath

It's amazing how many idiotic reviewers, zines, and joke sites are out there these days.  It's practically a pandemic of Buzzfeed-styled click-attacks, tag lists of bullshit, and further a lack of proper research.  With the power of the internet, really, is it so hard to study before you write?  Doombringer are a Polish black metal […]

Repulsor – Trapped in a Nightmare EP

Talk about some thrashtastic artwork, it references practically every legendary VHS cover or film poster from the 1980s, such as Virgin Among the Living Dead or City of the Walking Dead.  With that in mind, it comes with an expectation of retro worship.  In fact, that's kind of what's been going on in thrash for the past […]
