Depressive – We R Fuk”d (Updated Xerox Death Noise)

  Whoah boiiii I’ve been waiting for a good release of this type for far too long damn. Noise albums have slammed now and then in the past year, don’t mistake my meaning, but they always suck at the art, stuck in some sort of old school Xerox aesthetic that honestly should die already. More […]

Kryptik Mutation – Pulle from the Pit (Clearly Brutal Death Metal)

  Oh damn we got a monster cover here whooo. Also impalement. Through an eye. Why is this happening and what does it mean? It doesn’t matter, folks, because this is Kryptik Mutation! They’re not here for the sake of clarity, unless you specifically mean brutal death metal with a legible logo. They’re absolutely clear […]

Universally Estranged – Reared Up in Spectral Predation (Real Cosmic Death Metal)

  I knew this shit was going to be deep. Actually, better to say I knew it wanted to be deep, because it’s trying out that “cosmic death metal” thing. Whether or not it was was up to the task depended on my blackholes (ears) and my existential consumption of conflagration (brain). See? Deep shit […]

To Dust – Nightmare Cycles (Not Necessarily a Sin Grind)

  Grind bands rarely take themselves seriously enough. I’ll never forget this one promo I got where dude dropped a fart in the middle of a song cut. Or if grinders take themselves seriously they do it’s in such a short amount of space you’re not entirely convinced they did anything. To Dust falls into […]

Pneuma Hagion – Voidgazer (Noble Status Nefarious Death Metal)

  Now here’s a cover I was really on the fence about, in fact pretty much leaning over to the “no way” side but the more I listened to Pneuma Hagion the more I had to accept it. I’ve received some promos from these guys before, consistently rejecting it for the usual Classical or Neoclassical […]

Eternal Champion – Ravening Iron (SEGA! Epic Heavy Metal)

  You guys been like playing that Sega Genesis Nintendo stuff man? To be honest when someone dares name themselves after a totally overrated 16-bit fighting game you can’t expect much. SEGA (you scream)! Maybe it’s just coincidence though, I don’t know, actually it is. The name Eternal Champion comes from some fantasy literature stuff, […]

Unholy Vampyric Slaughter Sect (The World Trapped in Vampyric Sway (Darker and Darker)) (Damn Dude Took My Parenthesis Joke)

  I changed the art on this using the original piece that makes up the finished cover, which for some reason was reduced to B/W and just a total mess, but hey, that’s what happens in basement black metal, or BBM, this being the US variety, or USBBM I guess we’ll say from now on. […]

Vacant Eyes – A Somber Preclusion of Being (Turgid Funeral Doom)

  Oh I fooled you with the subtitle of this review lol. Hey, since Vacant Eyes were being wordy, I figured I’d be wordy, even though what our subtitle today implies is their wordiness is a defect. That’s just like a joke man. In fact, it’s all in good praise. A Somber Preclusion of Being […]

Fleshdriver – Leech (Almost Tiresome Death Metal)

  Well, here’s a release that almost wears out its welcome but manages to press a smile into your cheeks anyway. Carrying on the tradition of Floridian death metal come Fleshdriver, a drum and guitar tag team that, to date, have but two singles and Leech, a demo, to their name. For lacking bass and […]

Drouth – Excerpts from a Dread Liturgy (Black Metal Manifest)

  Wow, I ended up liking this one more than I expected. Leave it to US black metal to excite me again, after months and months of drudgery. I was getting sick of the snowstorm tremolo, the corpse paint no one remembers the purpose of anymore, the lo-fi ” but that’s how it’s supposed to […]
