Nephren-Ka - From Agony To Transcendence

This time, I'm gonna review a French brutal death metal band's album which is unique one for me after a while. It's really specific and I really congrats to them. I really admire their stuff. "From Agony To Transcendence" is Nephren-Ka's third full-length album which is released in 2021, June via Dolorem Records (a French label). If you like...

Netherbird - Arete

Waoh this album is a blast! So yes, Netherbird is not the most famous Swedish band, not the one that makes the front pages of the magazines, not the one that all the young death metal guys talk about but nevertheless the band, based in Stockholm, is slowly approaching its 20 years of existence and already has 5 LP to his credit. "Arete" is their 6t...

Tristwood - Dystopia Et Disturbia

In celebration of their 20 years of existence, Austria’s blackened industrial death metal group Tristwood have decided to re-release their third album that was locked in the digital vaults way back in 2010. “Dystopia et Disturbia” is probably their crowning achievement that really put them on the map with its unique sound, even though their latest...

Bihargam - Blood In The Temple

With concerts almost non-existent for the past year, and so many people missing them, metal artists have taken to putting out livestream shows and albums as a way to bring live music or the sound of live music back to the fans. Less than a year ago Kentucky based Bihargam graced fans with their sophomore effort of gritty black metal in 2020, and no...

Incertus - Predestination To Damnation

Incertus are a relatively new group from Poland; not much is known about them save that they are a 3 piece with a rather simple, but effective death metal sound and their first full length debut unleashed hell on ears in March of 2021. While most of the music on this album goes pretty quick with the album clocking barely 30 minutes, and churning ou...

Death/black metal from Toulouse (France) named Devolution, one man band that has just released their first work entitled "Consumer". 8 songs that range in different genres but which in the end are all attributable to a surely intriguing and positive result.

Ireful - The Walls Of Madness

Ireful are a relatively new Italian thrash metal group to the world, just forming in 2019. Their style of thrash is a range of speed or mid paced, much in the vein of very early Metallica, Slayer, and a bit of Exodus. One has those groovy riffs, spitfire drums, and echoing shouted vocals that just screams ‘Kill ‘em All’ worship. ‘The Walls Of Madne...

Casket - Urn

Despite there being about fifty plus bands with the name Casket, and probably 75 percent of being death metal, Germany’s Casket have a rather unique story. They’re deeply rooted in the late 90s sound with a blend of Bolt Thrower meets Cannibal Corpse so old school, fast death metal fans are going to really enjoy it. After one full length debut back...

Macabre Decay - Into Oblivion

Directly from cold Sweden here comes the new album by Macabre Decay, a band active in the death metal scene since 2014. This "Into Oblivion" is their second official work after the release of "Purgatory" dated 2018. Much more mature work under all the aspects and endowed with an extraordinary freshness. Band perhaps unknown to the most but that see...

Bizarrekult - Vi Overlevde

Bizarrekult are one of those bands that feel like they’ve been on and off again before finally catching real ground with their releases. These guys from both Russia and Norway have been active since 2005 but with quite a few gaps between activity until 2019 when they finally gained a new guitarist and some traction to get a full length album out. T...

Alcohelldrugs - Infernal Metal Punk

Alcohelldrugs from Brazil is a punk, speed/thrash metal band. “Infernal Metal Punk” is exactly what its title says: a filthy and violent attack of Satan’s music; punk and metal. The material you will listen here is raw and in your face. “Infernal Metal Punk” actually summarizes the band's discography so far. It includes all of their tracks that...

Ossuaire - Mortes Fables

Ossuaire are one of those obscure ‘one album wonder’ bands who made it far enough to crank out 1 full length album back in 2010 before disbanding a few years later. Judging from the obscure history they’ve been around since 2000 so the gritty, yet technical tone of their choice of death metal from France is very much like Gorguts meets the doomy wa...

Cathexis - Untethered Abyss

Cathexis are a death metal group from Austin Texas. Their debut album "Untethered Abyss" is the culmination of six years of gruelling song writing and a carefully put together cast of international talent in order to recreate death metal with more groove and gore. "Untethered Abyss" is an eight track death metal album with a production value tha...

71TonMan - War Is Peace/ Peace Is Slavery

71TonMan are a Polish sludge death metal hybrid group that know how to craft epics of grim, old school proportion. They’ve been around since 2011 but after 2 full length albums “War Is Peace…” is their first EP. While sadly only 3 tracks which doesn’t really give too much to judge at least the tracks stretch past the 5 minute mark so there is a lot...

Gorgásmico Pornoblastoma - Duo A Quem Doer

Gorgásmico Pornoblastoma comes from Guimaraes, PortugaL. They have been around for more than a decade already, punishing humanity with their lo-fi noise/grindcore. Sometimes their sound gets heavier and more brutal, especially due to the death metal touches which appear on their vocals. Gorgásmico Pornoblastoma is Ced (guitar/vox) and Luizao (dr...
