Carthage - Third Punic War

Greece’s Carthage continue to storm ears with their history lessons of Rome, this time with their EP and third chapter entitled “Third Punic War.” Their last album back in 2021 was a storm of Death Metal influenced heavily by the likes of Hate Eternal and Aborted with a hailstorm of riffs and guttural vocals that scorched ears and left eardrums rin...

SoulCarrion - Enthrone Death

Get ready for some heavy Old School Death Metal from Poland with SoulCarrion’s 2nd full length album, “Enthrone Death.” Similar to their first album, it is still rooted deep in the mix of Immolation meets Incantation for that reverb heavy, guttural sound mixed with surprisingly clear drumming. Greg still handles the guitars while Michal also handle...

Infected Priest / Human Target - Split

Here we have a split from 2 raw Finnish bands who both perform a sort of Old School Death Metal but with Grindcore influences for a very fast, but still enjoyable album. The first half is from five piece Infected Priest who have been around since 2013 and haven’t really done much since their demo from 2017 so 6 years later it is good to hear from t...

Abhorrent Execration - Death... Doom... Despair...

A raw crushing demo is what listeners get with the recently formed Abhorrent Execration from France. Released on Nekrassious Tapes and limited to only 66 copies, one is going to get 4 tracks of curshing, fuzzed out Old School Death Metal. A cross between Incantation and Torture Killer, expect a loud but tastefully groove laden album. This duo knows...

Cercenatory - Goresphere

Cercenatory’s “Goresphere” is a little slab of gore grinding brutal death metal that “cannibalizes” elements and vibes from other genres thus creating a rather intoxicating dose of insane madness/ The band have developed their own take on this art which is often duplicated and stagnant. Having said that, there is nothing stagnant here. Razor blade...

Blood Red Throne - Nonagon

Norway’s Blood Red Throne has had quite the career since their inception in 1998. With only 1 original member since the beginning (guitarist Død who was known for playing with Satyricon for a bit), the band has seen numerous line up changes, especially in the vocal department. However, these changes seem to have kept the Death Metal band fresh over...

Challenger Deep - III. The Path

It has been a long nine years, but Belarus’ Challenger Deep have finally put out album no. 3 with “The Path.” For those not familiar with this rather underground but talented band, they perform a mix of Sludge, Doom, Post, and even Black Metal, offering up some rather lengthy, but tasteful tracks. Nine years is a bit of a stretch to wait for an alb...

Nar - Pejabat Bangsat

Very little is known about the recent surfacing of Indonesian Death Metal band Nar. They don’t list their members and have only a few EPs under their belt since 2023, but despite only short tidbits of what they’ve given, expect it to be very brutal. The sounds is fast, aggressive, and guttural, and will appeal of fans of anything from the legendary...

Rabhas - Propaganda Antiumana

Rabhas hail from Italy and “Propaganda Antiuma” is their third full length album (and first to be signed to label Broken Bones Promotion).

For new lis...

Lipid - The Perfect Killing Machine

It is a wonder when bands put out an album, go silent for nearly 2 decades, and then suddenly pop back up on the map. This is the case for Denmark’s Thrash Metal band Lipid, a 4 piece that started up in 1995 and put out their debut in 2006 but have been subtly quiet ever since. Relatively unknown in the Metal world, Great Dane Records have picked u...

Infected Chaos - Conjuration Overture – Vanity Is Dawning

We haven’t heard anything from Infected Chaos in the past since "Dead Aesthetics" from 2021 (which I had the pleasure to review), but it sounds like they’ve been hard at work improving their sound with their new EP “Conjuration Overture – Vanity Is Dawning.” This is a short, but refined slab of Death Metal from this Austrian five piece, and while s...
