SILENCED MINSTREL – “VOLUME 5”

I like myself some Bestial Black Metal. Bands like Goat Penis, Blasphemy, Archgoat, Revenge and Beherit all occupy a special place in my darkened heart. With that being said I have to state that I didnt quite find “Volume 5” by Silenced Minstrel to be quite my cup of torrid tea. The instrumentation and programming … Read more

HELL RIDERS – “FIRST RACE”

Listening to “First Race” by Hell Riders immediately brings to mind the leather clad, fist pumping pummel of Judas Priest.

I was honored to receive this fine release courtesy of the man behind Cryoplegia, Lwandile Prusenthimself late last 2020.

ULCERATE – “STARE INTO DEATH AND BE STILL”

The most recent album by the indomitable, inimitable and sonically awe inspiring ULCERATE “Stare Into Death And Be Still” is a convulsive, corrosive, concussive and crushing slab of dark, dissonant and devastating Death Metal that is sheathed in atmospherics of the most ominous and melancholic kind. This album is an otherworldly, transcendent and turbulent experience … Read more
