Victims ‘Sirens’ CD/LP/DD 2016

31st March 2016 at 6:31 pm

Victims

Since their inception back in ’97, Victims have been bridging the gap between hardcore punk/crust/d-beat and the rest of the metal world. Even for the most pedestrian of crust fans, Victims are undeniably one of the most accessible bands of this genre. While most…

Doom ‘Consumed To Death’ Benefit EP DD 2015

5th October 2015 at 6:57 pm

Doom

In normal circumstances a review should focus on the actual record, but this new release by crust legends Doom demands a different approach. Though it’s a joyous thing to get a new Doom recording, the first since 2013, the reason this is out now…

Winds Of Genocide ‘Usurping The Throne Of Disease’ CD/DD 2015

8th February 2015 at 1:09 pm

Winds Of Genocide

Winds Of Genocide detonated upon my consciousness for the first time with their 2010 release, The Arrival Of Apokalyptic Armageddon. Man, now that was a head smasher. The veritable Molotov cocktail of raging crust meets death metal violence that was over before you knew…

Baptists ‘Bloodmines’ CD/LP/DD 2014

4th November 2014 at 10:27 am

Baptists

Canadian crust punk/hardcore bludgeoners Baptists are releasing their newest record, Bloodmines, on Southern Lord and it’s being produced by Kurt Ballou. I don’t really need to tell you what this sounds like do I? But I’m going to, because it’s my job, and not…

The Body / Sandworm – Split LP/DD 2014

27th October 2014 at 11:22 am

The-Body-Sandworm-Split

Despite being around since 1999 and releasing their first demo in 2004, The Body only seem to have gained real recognition in the last year or so. This is probably due to their recent collaborations with Thou on Released From Love and with The…

Martyrdöd ‘Elddop’ CD/LP/DD 2014

2nd September 2014 at 9:32 am

Martyrdöd

Martyrdöd caught my interest purely because of the bands they listed as their influences. It’s shameful to admit that but hey, we’re living in a post-Last.fm world aren’t we? They reckon they’re into bands I listen to fairly regularly (Bathory), and bands that I’ve…

Electric Funeral ‘Total Funeral’ LP/DD 2014

23rd August 2014 at 10:17 am

Electric Funeral

Punk, like most musical genres has taken many twists and turns over the years and has thrown up bands that exist under the same umbrella that bare little sonic and ethical resemblance to each other. Without debating the starting point we have reached the…

Dysteria ‘Fuck The Future’ DD 2014

11th August 2014 at 9:11 am

Dysteria

Hardcore, grindcore, crustcore, doomcore, sludgecore, trudgecore, d-beatcore, sorecore, filthcore, mudcore, applecore, boarcore, warcore, fistcore, killcore… Cor blimey, that’s a lot of cores. Yet somehow all of them roughly seem apt as descriptions of relatively new North London mob Dysteria, who spilt their debut puddle…

Filthpact ‘Resurrected Under Condemnation’ CD/DD 2014

4th July 2014 at 8:36 am

Filthpact

Filthpact are, or should I say were, a Scottish crust punk band full of grindcore and socio-political influences. They split up this year, but have released Resurrected Under Condemnation, a collection of all their tracks released between 2010 and 2014. We’re looking at 20…

Enabler ‘La Fin Absolue Du Monde’ CD/LP/DD 2014

1st July 2014 at 8:39 am

Enabler

It’s been two years since Enabler‘s All Hail The Void descended onto the scene beating its chest and thrusting its gargantuan metal-core knackers in our faces. All Hail The Void was an impetuous first album, enthusiastically weaving its way through hardcore, crust, death, grind,…
