Autopsy ‘Tourniquets, Hacksaws And Graves’ CD/LP/DD 2014

27th May 2014 at 9:24 am

Autopsy

Coffin lids creak open, the sounds of moaning and scrabbling nails against rotten wood intensify and the stench of the grave creeps ever nearer. These unmistakeable signs can mean only one thing…. the fiends from Autopsy have returned and no-one is safe!! Now, we…

Roadburn 2014 – Day 2 Review By Paul Robertson

5th May 2014 at 9:15 am

Roadburn 2014 – Day 2

Shroud Eater

Man the ramparts and summon the militia, those heathen barbarians known as Shroud Eater have returned and no-one is safe! Even the strongest of men would cower beneath the might of their furious assault, driven from the rear by Felipe Torres’ furious battery, given…

Shroud Eater: Paul Robertson Interviews Guitarist/Vocalist Jean Saiz

19th March 2014 at 10:32 am

Shroud Eater

One of my favourite ‘discoveries’ since I started writing for Thee Shaman, back in the mists of time, is definitely Miami-based hessian barbarian triad Shroud Eater. I loved their sound from the get-go and have enjoyed making their acquaintance online via Facebook, coming to…
