Vaultwraith – Death is Proof of Satan’s Power (Olde Satan)

Vaultwraith – Death is Proof of Satan’s Power (Olde Satan)

I’ve been thinking on this one for several weeks now. As is usual around here, that means something is confusing or unclear. In this case it appears to be neither. I’m fully convinced this is an “on purpose” but yet have no actual proof as the band remains obscure and seems to have no live […]

Blood Feast – The Future State of Wicked (Uhhhhh…)

I was totally about this album for some reason when I first saw the cover. The more I look at it, I’m not sure why. The more I listen to it I’m even more disgusted at my intuition. It is clearly wrong. Okay how many times have I said this next particular thing now? I don’t […]

Quick Reviews – September 2017

In case you missed it, we do special, short reviews now of stuff that’s not up to the standards I set for full reviews. Meaning, the cover art sucks. This doesn’t mean the music isn’t any good, of course, but as you know, at least 1/4 of an album’s presence is in its art, a […]

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 […]

Hell:On – Once Upon a Chaos…

Experimentation is occasionally a path of ruin, irrespective of history and skill, a choice often made for the wrong reasons, or even when made for the right reasons it leads to abject failure.  It’s a dangerous path, fraught with danger, covered in brambles leading up to steep cliffs where a single foothold means either progression […]

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 […]

Inquisitor – Walpurgis – Sabbath of Lust

Damn it, these guys screwed up our whole system of article titles.  See, we start with the band name and then a dash, followed by album title.  So when the album title contains a dash within its boundaries we are doomed to looking like we’re reviewing a three-way split.  So, just for clarification, this is […]

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 […]

Cassette Assault – Absolute Filth

Here we are again, ye keepers of the guns and ammo, ye corrupt blasphemers of the digital era.  Load up, get your bandoliers, get your helicopters, get your grenades, and prepare to blow the speakers of that nice old Sony two-deck you got from Goodwill as you continue to deny the world you believe in […]

Nocturnal Breed: Napalm Nights

We’ve encountered this whole retro thrash thing a number of times over the past few years, in fact you’re probably sick of us saying that, but there are a couple of worthy bands who were doing it before it was cool, or before it was considered retro.  How can something even be retro if it […]
