Koko-Di Koko-Da (Groundhog Day Murder Grief Film by Johannes Nyholm)

Koko-Di Koko-Da (Groundhog Day Murder Grief Film by Johannes Nyholm)

  When The Babadook exploded in 2014, along came the usual flurry of thinkpieces praising an intelligent horror movie that dealt with the thorny topic of grief. Although labeling this a new development ignores the long history that horror has with bereavement, the recent trend of “elevated horror” films that explicitly address grief is undeniable. […]

Revolting – The Shadow at the World’s End (Acceptable Swedish Death Metal)

Revolting – The Shadow at the World’s End (Acceptable Swedish Death Metal)

  So I wasn’t a big fan of this at first. In fact I wasn’t a fan at all. I pretty much hated it, but then I realized it wasn’t the fault of Revolting, I had just heard too much typical death metal going through the promos and I forgot, lol, this is the Swedish […]

Svartsyn – Requiem (More of the Same Yet Better Black Metal)

Svartsyn – Requiem (More of the Same Yet Better Black Metal)

  Yeah, so like I was on a lull this week, and the last week, because 100% of the promos I received sucked and there was seriously nothing worth your time. So if anyone said there was they’re stupid and you should stop paying attention to them. So I had a conundrum at that point. […]

Repuked – Dawn of Reintoxication (Swedeath with a Myspace Page)

  Lol these fooking clowns. I knew Repuked was going to spew vomit from the moment I saw their name, followed by the album title, lol Dawn of Reintoxication, and then band photos where they clearly could give a shit with grocery bags left in the shot, a double-wide lawn chair, someone holding a foot […]

Laser Dracul – Hagridden (Moldy Old Dude Stoner Metal)

  Well this was surprisingly good, holy shit. I mean don’t fault me too much because these guys are coming at you with lasers and some Dracula shit and, more importantly, they’re playing stoner/sludge/doom metal that usually collapses under the weight of stereotype. Said institutions have not done better in this regard, most often. So […]

Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Conglomerate Crust Metal)

Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Conglomerate Crust Metal)

  I feel like the promos I’ve been receiving, the ones I’ve selected anyway, have really come in the perfect order. I’ve had a great sampling of noise, heavy metal, punk, etc., and now add to that this slab with some crust stuff and we’re pretty much filling out a memoir. And this is rather […]

Obnoxious Youth – Mouths Sewn Shut (Superdeformed Speed Metal)

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. […]

Apsulov: End of Gods (Cyberpunk Viking Scare)

Apsulov: End of Gods (Cyberpunk Viking Scare)

  Freaks, how do I put this? This game is exploding with badassery. From desperately scurrying through shadows away from trolls to fighting all sorts of fierce, colossal beasts with a mechanical arm, there’s always something refreshing. Apsulov: End of Gods was forged by small Swedish horror game studio Angry Demon and it perfectly blends […]

Maligner – Attraction to Annihilation (Everything Should Be Burned)

Maligner – Attraction to Annihilation (Everything Should Be Burned)

  Lol this is such a goddamn fitting album to review today, it really is. If you’re not aware, this site is so apolitical you’ll swear off any potential party affiliation or political worldview immediately. Keep that crap out of here, unless it’s to start flame wars in the comments so the site gets more hits. […]

Crawl – Rituals (Sweden Does It Again, Basically)

  I feel like I’ve been getting a lot of Swedish metal the past few months. Actually, it’s probably more than I’ve noticed it since it’s been pretty damn good in general. I really need to stop with the italics joke, so let’s see if I can make it through the rest of this. Really I don’t need […]
