Resurrection Men ‘Resurrection Men Must Die!’ DD 2014

9th January 2015 at 10:53 am

Resurrection Men

It’s a curious title that Resurrection Men have sprung upon us for this, their debut release which was splurged out of The Moonbase Recording Studio at the arse end of 2014. On the one hand, it could be condemning the re-re-re-release of the “retro”…

Revenge ‘Victory Intolerance Mastery’ CD/LP 2004

5th March 2005 at 9:15 am

Revenge

From the chaotic, distorted opening 30 seconds of this album, you just know your in for a nasty, nihilistic treat and with the arrival of the blast beats, coupled with dirty grinding riffs help set this little beauty in motion. Revenge dish out complete…

22nd February 2009 at 8:58 am

Rise Of The Simians

I was always taught that using a cliché showed a lack of original thought and an example of an over used opinion. With that in mind I sat down to put finger to keyboard about ‘The Cursed Law Of Thelema’, the latest demo from…

Rising ‘Abominor’ LP/DD 2013

1st December 2013 at 8:29 am

Rising
