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

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...

Sieta - Novgorod

Well what do we have here? Straight from the Slavic countries a folk metal album by the Russian band Sieta called "Novgorod", this LP will be available in June.

Exorcizphobia - Digitotality

Excorciphobia are a thrash metal group coming from Czech Republic, offering a newly styled spin on the genre whilst paying homage to the old school era of thrash.

Nervous Decay – Nervous Decay

Nantes based Nervous Decay have been playing their particular cacophony of old school death metal since 2017 and from that point have squeezed out a demo, a single and this debut album. The debut album features the same tracks that were present on the demo and the single, but so often bands do this so that their original, battle tested tunes can be...

Baalberith are a five piece death metal band with black metal influences here and there from Poland and “Manhunt” is their crushing debut full length for 2021.

Witchfuck – Black Blood Baptism

It’s probably not a huge surprise to anyone reading this that a band that goes by the name “Witchfuck” doesn’t exactly regard subtlety as high priority. You would also be forgiven for thinking you know exactly what this will sound like before actually listening to it (and you would be correct). Yes, “Black Blood Baptism” is no frills black metal th...
