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

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 […]

Label EXPOSED – Caligari Records

Label EXPOSED – Caligari Records

Well, it's been awhile since we did one of these, in fact back before the new site became active, so it has to have been about three or four years now.  And what a fitting reunion!  We have here, that's right, a label exposure for Caligari Records, owned and run by the former owner/editor of […]

Mayak – Allegiance to None

Now here's an interesting mix from Bielefeld, Germany.  In this modern era, you have the pontifiers of the classique, those who refuse to quit the age-old style of various genres, content with appealing to a rather stagnant fan base.  In addition to that camp you have the truly unique, those who often create a wide […]

Execució – Demo

After all the work we've been doing recently, there came a time when enough was enough but circumstances made it pertinent to keep going anyway and push through the pain.  When life gets you down, when work never ends, when you have to finish things in a day you normally do over the course of […]

Ulvedharr – Swords of Midgard

One curious thing from bands we've seen from Italy is a strange tendency to consume foreign culture for image purposes.  We almost got in trouble once in an old review of a band from a northern region of the country that utilized images of a forgotten tribe, but which to 99% of their audience appeared […]

Desdinova: Defying Gravity

Well, this was...a bummer...a bummer's bummer.  We've had a lot of bands over the years here telling us what their image is all about, what it all means to them.  Often it's pretty accurate, in spite of the staleness of the tunes to be found.  Desdinova is pretty clear they're a thrash band from their […]

Pasadena Napalm Division: S/T

Stoked probably isn't the word we're searching for when we begin our discussion of this masterpiece to signify the bodily sensations that erupted when we heard it was going down, it was all going down.  Finally, the full-length was prepared.  Aflame wouldn't cut it either, and neither would afire.  This requires some sort of clever […]

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 […]

Lody Kong: No Rules

The family name of Cavalera strikes true to many hearts of metal fans and for good reason. Bands such as the legendary Sepultura, Soulfly, and Cavalera Conspiracy have reigned well and have continued to have a strong influence in the metal community. Now Max Cavalera’s sons have formed Lody Kong, a four piece nu metal/thrash […]

Kause 4 Konflikt: No Better Friend – No Worse Enemy

Kause 4 Konflikt: No Better Friend – No Worse Enemy

This one looks just plain awful on the surface. It reads like the worst of hardcore with Kottonmouth Kings and Slipknot bringing up the fore to end your life brah, and the band members even have themselves dressed like Mushroomhead or something unspeakable, as a quick internet search reveals.  Suffice to say it looked like […]
