Trog – Horrors Beyond (Devolved Horror Death Metal)

  I don’t know what the hell that monster mess is on the cover of the first full-length from New Jersey’s Trog but I like it, a lot. Previously, and fairly recently, known under the name of “Troglorot” (whatever the hell that meant), Trog is mainly interested in death metal devolution, both musically and thematically. […]

Construct of Lethe – A Kindness Dealt in Venom (Psychologically Chaotic Death Metal)

  Wow we got a lot going on in this one, and cool to see another Virginia band grace this site since it now gives me an excuse to creep on them in their hometown, which is not far from me. If I were to provide a one-word explanation of what to expect out of […]

Spiter – Enter the Gates of Fvcking Hell (Still True Vampyric Metalpunk)

  Well, let’s see if the link to this one with the slightly altered title will make it through the censors lol. Because Spiter would most certainly not use a V in the place of a U. Since the lead is from Shitfucker, I mean, come on. However, though the laughs of that band are […]

Altar of Gore – Litanies of the Unceasing Agonies (Savagely Putrid Death Metal)

  Is this another case of “yep, that kind of band” or “yep, that kind of album?” In some ways, but not all, I’m very pleased to state. Altar of Gore is a fairly established member of the New Jersey disgusting metal scene, which is filled with horrid rejects like Blasphematory. Said scene is rather […]

Desolus – System Shock (Satanic Sci-Fi Death Thrash)

  Dang these guys don’t live too far from me. They should probably visit, spice up this area with some real music. Currently on tour with legends Spiter, Washington DC’s Desolus appeared rather quickly, and it appears that rather quickly they’re carving a niche for themselves in the darkest regions of post-apocalyptic, Satanic, sci-fi death […]

Primitive Warfare – Extinction Protocol (State of Nature War Metal)

Primitive Warfare – Extinction Protocol (State of Nature War Metal)

  Okay, this might be the first time I’ve said this, but more metal bands need to use World War I for aesthetic purposes. Not what you’re thinking, I mean that gritty, water-soaked, rat-nibbled, barbed wire strangulation kind of aesthetic. Not the aesthetic of “war is hell,” like so many have attempted, but the aesthetic […]

Vesseles – I Am a Demon (Dysphoric Black Metal)

  Alright, so I thought really hard about reviewing this one. In the end, obviously the choice was made, but it was largely for thematic and philosophical reasons (and quite a bit of research) than it was the music. United States symphonic black metal act Vesseles aren’t pulling out stops for I Am a Demon […]

Purulency – Transcendent Unveiling of Dimensions (More Than a Mere Demo Slimy Death Doom)

Purulency – Transcendent Unveiling of Dimensions (More Than a Mere Demo Slimy Death Doom)

  What a tangled mess of gross this one is. Get your cold, pasty hands off of me! I feel sick! I can’t think! Considering it’s rainy outside as I write this one, we’ll go with those bodily sensations. I want to feel revulsed. Tennessee’s Purulency, in this mere demo, take a different thematic approach […]

Diabolic Oath – Oracular Hexations (Unrestrained Bestial Black Metal)

Diabolic Oath – Oracular Hexations (Unrestrained Bestial Black Metal)

  Another smasher from Sentient Ruin Laboratories, let’s start there. From there let’s move to the band, Diabolic Oath, a three-piece from Portland, Oregon, that insists on making the listener hallucinate. Oracular Hexations leaves the brain and all thoughts within it disfigured. What at first appears a dark story woven by a degenerate becomes far […]

Molten – Malicide (Archaic Heretical Death Thrash)

Molten – Malicide (Archaic Heretical Death Thrash)

  Goddamn. Listen, for the millionth time, cover art is so important in selling a band, a book, practically everything. Get a good artist! Case in point here’s Malicide, the latest full-length from San Francisco’s Molten. A little surprised this hasn’t received much press as of yet. Death thrash can be a generally easy sell […]
