Ice War – Defender, Destroyer (One-Man Snow-Hating Heavy Metal)

Ice War – Defender, Destroyer (One-Man Snow-Hating Heavy Metal)

  Nice, some actual heavy metal that's actually good. I was struggling to understand what in the hell this band name was about since this is now a one-man power act that was originally part of Iron Dogs (known for their risque covers), and that name made sense. Ice War, like, what is that? Is […]

Obnoxious Youth – Mouths Sewn Shut (Superdeformed Speed Metal)

  This is the kind of stuff I live to review, if you can call that living. I laugh and stare from above as the pathetic provincial sites of the world attempt to draw some sorts of band comparisons or pathetically toss out tag after stale tag in an attempt to ground their meaningless words. […]

Black Viper – Hellions of Fire (Woah You Guys Do Power and/or Speed Metal?)

  Sheah, we do power metal and/or speed metal on occasion. Got a problem with the gap in reviews? Huh? Deal with it (sunglasses drop), because most of it sucks hard. Too old school and/or not enough modern bite. Unlike thrash, which the majority of us can give a pass to regardless of how old […]

Sacral Rage – Beyond Celestial Echoes (Spacey Speed)

  Lol, spacey speed, you like that? Good because we're going to keep this trip to the stars going. Greek speed/thrash space bandits Sacral Rage I've only heard from whispers in the galaxy and barely a solar tendril of their sound has ever come to my ears until Beyond Celestial Echoes. The album has received […]

Kobold – Death Parade (When Will Vintage Thrash Die? Parade)

  Welcome Serbia’s Kobold and their Death Parade, 15 tracks of ass-blistering, face-melting, dick-scalding, heart-burning, finger-gnashing, teeth-crushing, curb-stomped, methhead speed metal. The things I like about Kolbold’s take on the old is that it doesn’t stray from the path of what has come before.  The cover by Željko Manojlović is very 80’s with those Big Brother, […]

Aynsophar – Abysmal Secrets of Unknown (Too True)

I'm trying to think how I can best introduce this one without giving attention to the obvious. Okay let me just say it then. Aynsophar is the brainchild of Barbara Teleki, Hungarian-born guitar master and instrumentalist extreme. Yes, that's right, she's a woman. I mention this for only one reason. Far too often does one […]

Demona – 2015 EP

There's a lot of crossover in speed and thrash metal, and really it's always been that way.  Sometimes there's a blurring of lines, but thankfully it's permissible, and never has been confusing.  This is because both genres feed into and off of each other quite well.  Now, we've received a lot of thrash over the […]
