GoreThrone - The Descension

The debut EP from Grand Rapids based death metal group GoreThrone is a very fast ride, but “The Descension” is full of plenty of influences from Deicide, to Six Feet Under, to Cannibal Corpse that will make anyone who is a fan of death metal in general quite interested. There isn’t too much to go on here with the album clocking at about 17 minutes...

Band active since 2001, here come these Vrykolakas from Singapore who with "And Vrykolakas Brings Chaos And Destruction" arrive with their third official work.

Irredemption - Eternal Mutilation Of Saturn

Spain’s death metallers Irredemption have been quiet for some time. Last time they put out an album was back in 2005 so it is a little surprising to see this late 90s death metal band back in full swing almost 15 years later. Sounding like they never changed, the music is still rooted in the 90s style with a lot of comparisons to the likes of Suffo...

Wretched Incarnate - Wretched Incarnate

First full length album for this one man band from the UK. Wretched Incarnate is the name and Mr. Ash Cotterill is responsible for all you’re bout to hear once you push the play button on this first, self-titled album. "Wretched Incarnate" deals with a really old school approach in death metal. Power comes from the riffs here. Morbid Angel meets Be...

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. The choice was to come out with an entire album, Devolution present themselves with a goo...

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...
