Negative Prayer – Self // Wound (Repulsive Body Horror Crust Metal)

  Oooo this one has some power behind it. I guess it has to since it fits easily into the crust metal genre but yet… I don’t like dropping tags often, but Portland, Oregon’s Negative Prayer can definitely be rooted in that as well as the tradition of d-beat, yet, hmm, there’s something different here… […]

Ghoul – Noxious Concotions (Grossover)

  I’m fairly surprised I never reviewed Ghoul before. I mean this shit is right up the alley I’ve built around myself and my critics on this site. We’ve branded ourselves so deep the scar went into bone. And with Ghoul we’ve got darkness, irony, vileness, sick art, gross stage presence (with bloody, burlap hoods, […]

Demoncy – Diabolica Blasphemiae (Traitorous Bones Blackened Death Metal)

  Though part of the original guarde of black metal in the United States, I’ve never really considered Demoncy to be black metal, though I have always considered them to be awesome. Their earlier work certainly hearkens back to the early 1990s wave from Norway, but as time went on they developed their own, Californian, […]

Casket Cassette – Love Letters to Ghosts (Nighttime High School Basketball Court Cold Wave)

  I tell you what here’s another shat week for promos. I had only a single submission I wanted to review (already done before this one) and in desperation I thought “hey, been awhile since I heard some good Goth licks.” Search a tag and sometimes you come upon gold, this time under the moniker […]

Vastum – Inward to Gethsemane (Shameful Death Metal Eroticism)

  For some bizarre reason it took me some time to get into this one, but don’t let that fool you, it’s an absolute ripper. I’ll blame the weather or something, because clearly my mind just wasn’t ready for it. Again, strange, because I find a certain site rating this much lower than would I, […]

Left Cross – Upon Desecrated Altars (Nasty, Brutish, and Short War Metal)

  Here’s a band I knew nothing about until I came across this in the promos. At first I thought it was some bro metal band obsessed with punching (see their name), and then I found out it was actually murderous war metal (redundant, I know) band from Richmond, Virginia, which is quite close to […]

Abigail / Nekrofilth – Fuck in Hell’s Evil Bitches (Incorrect Grammar Blackened Thrash / Hardcore Punk)

  I usually complain about splits, primarily because one band outweighs the other, but let’s forget about that today because this is not such a case. This is Abigail fools! The rulers of splits! The kings of splits! The god emperors of splits! The demiurges of splits! Say it how you want, but these guys […]

Invultation – Feral Legion (Werewolf Metal)

  You know, I’ve seen the werewolf theme used quite a bit in metal, in a variety of genres too. Sometimes it’s cheese, sometimes it’s sleaze, mostly, just please. Rarely does it offer a band a chance at greatness, it’s kind of too golden age to work as I’ve seen it mainly presented, but, well, […]

Body Void – Atrocity Machine (Physically Revolting Acid Metal)

  This is like political, crusted, body horror sludge or something, or let’s just say acid metal. That’s the best I could come up with today, and thankfully I hit upon this in the emails because it came in a bit late. Got a few days late to scrunch it in there so let’s do […]

Sadistic Force – Midnight Assassin (Slasher Metal)

  You know a band’s killer when they’ve only been around three years but sound like they’ve been around thirty. But, hey, also you can’t be riding that retro thing too hard, otherwise we just feel old. Do I want to feel nostalgic? Sure. But I want to feel young, I want to feel like […]
