VULVOCRANIA – “SOCIETAL LOBOTOMISATION”

If you’re a Slamming Deathcore fiend such as myself then the prospect of a split EP between South African heavyweights Vulvodynia and UK wrecking crew Acrania is one to celebrate. I have been waiting with bated breath to wrap my fevered eardrums around this release since I had been made aware of its impending arrival … Read more

BOILING POINT – “FIELDS OF DOOM”

Admittedly I am completely smitten by the smoldering confluence of grisly crushing old school inspired Death Metal and gritty Hardcore Boiling Point ply with such punishing acumen! Folks, it is near impossible for me to fault music of this sort for it speaks to me on a cellular level. “Fields Of Doom” is the debut … Read more

RIDDLEBREAK – ARCHITEUTHIS

The latest EP courtesy of progressive Metalcore heavyweights RIDDLEBREAK is certainly a grandiose statement of artistic flare. With that being stated, although I find the music plied by this sextet to be sumptuous and savage in equal measure, I humbly think that the exquisite violin playing by Laura Atkinson could perhaps be incorporated into the … Read more

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 refer specifically to the sounds found on both the legendary “Painkiller” and “British Steel” albums. Yessiree! if you fiend for the type of turbo charged char that Iron Maiden, Saxon and the aforementioned Judas … Read more

UNTIL THE SKY DIES – “FORGOTTEN PACT”

Well if you’re in the mood for some brooding Doom/Death Metal with a sprinkling of interesting synth overtones then look no further for the duo known as Until The Sky Dies have you covered in the form of their album “Forgotten Pact” Herein you will be treated to a eight track excercise in ominous atmospherics … Read more

EMPYREAN FIRE – “DELIVERANCE”

Admittedly symphonic Black Metal is not a sub genre I frequent often. I generally find its pomp and grandiosity somewhat difficult to stomach. Although I can wholly appreciate the acumen, effort and energy that goes into it and applaud all musicians which pursue their vision within these paradigms with such unmitigated passion it is far … Read more

CRYOPLEGIA – “THE BIOLOGICAL HARVEST”

I was honored to receive this fine release courtesy of the man behind Cryoplegia, Lwandile Prusenthimself late last 2020. What for all intents and purposes initially appears to be merely a savage slab of stellar Slam, which folks, is certainly not a bad thing, especially if you’re a Slam fiend such as myself actually turns … Read more
