Coffins Interview

28th December 2008 at 8:58 am

Coffins

“Fuck your hyper blast machine aided triggered drums, fuck your pro-tools guitar Malmsteen-wank-off and fuck your meaningless multi-word band name because Coffins represent what Death Metal is and always was. A dirty, messy, noisy expression of negativity, a true outsider’s art form.” These words,…

Deadbird ‘Twilight Ritual’ CD 2008

26th December 2008 at 10:28 am

Chickenhawk - S/T - CD 2008

Shit, some bands really don’t have any respect for reviewers!!! They don’t make it easy for us at all. We want something we can categorise, some easy reference points to pick up on so we don’t have to use or brains too much and…

Outlaw Order ‘Dragging Down The Enforcer’ CD 2008

17th December 2008 at 8:54 am

This is a hard punch in the face that drops you like a sack of shit and makes you wise up to the ugliness of being poor in a big stinking American city. Outlaw Order kick out bristling fugitive punk from the lawless and…

Salome - S/T - CD/LP 2008

AAAArrrrghhh. This is ace. Salome are a thrilling three piece from Virginia, USA that sound like a super evil psychotic cataclysm amplified by black magic and blasted out the yawning anus of Hastur the Unspeakable. Fans of Khanate in particular will love this bleak…
