Voivod ‘Post Society’ CD/DD 2016

5th April 2016 at 6:24 pm

Voivod

This may come as almost as big a shock as anything received at the Morgoth Science Hospital when you consider exactly how often I mention Voivod in, if I’m honest, an almost worrying amount of my reviews, but I have to admit to you…

Black Cobra ‘Imperium Simulacra’ CD/LP/DD 2016

20th March 2016 at 10:55 am

Black Cobra

Just as tick precedes tock, as clip leads clop and as bish paves the way for bosh, so too does the announcement of a new Black Cobra album herald the thought of your brain being pummelled back to where it rightly belongs: into complete…

Night Viper – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2015

21st November 2015 at 3:20 pm

Night Viper - S/T

In my book, if you’re going to call your band something as naughty as Night Viper, then you’d better show up with the following kit list already well packed: 1) A truckload of neck-snapping riffs 2) A vocalist that sounds somewhere in the middle…

Black Breath ‘Slaves Beyond Death’ CD/LP/DD 2015

7th October 2015 at 7:06 pm

Black Breath

Hmmmm. You know that feeling you get when you can see entirely where a band are journeying to and you know exactly why they’ve gone there, yet you’re still not sure you really like where they spit you back out? Good. I guess that’s…

Oraculum ‘Sorcery Of The Damned’ CD/DD 2014

12th October 2014 at 11:41 am

Oraculum

I believe it was top 20th century philosopher Shane Embury who once famously posited that there was, at one time, “a glut of Death Metal bands in Chile”. And the frizzy haired one’s words are as true today as they were on that BBC…

Possessor ‘Electric Hell’ DD 2014

27th July 2014 at 11:58 am

Possessor

Looks can be deceiving. Given Possessor’s loose, rabid, and running wild crossover/thrash-fest on their latest, Electric Hell, you’d expect the three 1970s era torch toting beauties (see cover art) to either be punching some poor lad in the face (a la Pantera’s Vulgar Display…

Cauldron Black Ram ‘Stalagmire’ CD/LP/DD 2014

16th March 2014 at 10:55 am

Cauldron Black Ram

For those who have spent any extended time at sea (myself included), the prospect of a nautical burial, while intriguing, is one of the most disconcerting realities imaginable. Couple that with spending the final days leading up to your death in the throes of…

10th September 2013 at 9:03 am

Satanic Dystopia 'Double Denim Shotgun Massacre'

Like the video nasties section at your local video establishment, something dark and exciting is promised by the release of Satanic Dystopia’s first offering ‘Double Denim Shotgun Massacre’. With only two of the 8 tracks coming in over 3 minutes, this promises to be…

Enabler ‘Shift Of Redemption’ 7″ 2013

10th April 2013 at 9:56 am

Enabler

There was a time when Metalcore was a shining beacon of awesome that was supposed to save us from nu-metal, until someone quickly cottoned on to the fact that it was essentially just taking the worst things from two genres and trying to pass…

Okkultokrati ‘Snakereigns’ CD/LP 2012

24th November 2012 at 10:40 am

Okkultokrati

The melding of hardcore-punk and black metal is becoming all too common as of late but no band makes it sound as unholy as Okkultokrati. Hailing from Oslo, Norway it would be fair to say they had a good knowledge of all things black…
