Ohio Slamboys - Chop x Drill x Kill

There's no rules when it comes to making the music behind Ohio Slamboys, as proven on their latest album offering, "Chop x Drill x Kill". The album is over thirty minutes of pure slamming intensity; a blissful wet dream for those who seek out the most underground and savage sounding in new musical extremities. Whilst the overall term for slamming d...

Tralineate - Parasites

"Parasites" is the second album by the one man band from Topeka, Kansas after the one released in 2017. Tralineate accompany us on this long journey called "Parasites" with their progressive death of a thousand shades. It...

Xicution - For The World Beyond

Almost 8 years after their first album, Germany’s death groove group Xicution is back with their third full length. The album is full of plenty of heavy hitting riffs that sound just at home on a Six Feet Under or Torture Killer album with some Cannibal Corpse mixed in, so expect quite a bit of a 90s/ early 2000s death metal sound from these guys....

Mesentery - Soulfucker

Mesentery has been on a bit of a hiatus for almost 10 years, and now they are back with a fresh, vicious attitude on their album “Soulfucker.” The music is somewhat of a cross between death metal and groove metal- listeners will hear traces of anywhere from Devildriver to older In Flames to Carcass in it. The melodic quality of the guitars keeps up...

Grand Harvest - Consummatum Est

“Consummatum Est” is the debut from Sweden’s death doom group Grand Harvest. Shrouded in despair and anonymity with most of the members only have initials for their names, listeners should expect a healthy mix of slow, drawn out melancholy and faster, heavier pummeling death metal that will appeal to those who enjoy groups anywhere from Novembers D...

Fumigation - Structural Extermination

The Canadian death metal pest control is back with a new atrocity. The play button is pushed and after the “You have a roach on your neck” line… all hell breaks loose! Quick intro track filled with crazy guitar licks, heavy as fuck riffs and a super low guttural growling sewer. Their first full length of 2013 gave out a really groovy-technical...

Barbarian Prophecies - Horizon

Barbarian Prophecies have been around for a while (almost 21 years) so despite only have albums about for about 11 of those years, they’ve got quite a cult following and a lot of expectations to live up to.

Chemicide - Common Sense

Still full of social injustice hate, Costa Rica’s thrash junkies Chemicide unleash their fourth full length album “Common Sense.” A pretty standard thrash album the group doesn’t deviate from their formula, so those who have followed them since 2011 know what to expect. For new fans it sounds like a cross between Toxic Holocaust and Slayer (even th...

Nihilo - Resolution

"Resolution" is the fourth official album by Swiss Nihilo, a death metal band active since 2003. We move on old school territories that are very reminiscent of the Northern European scene, but also the American one. Suffice it to say that in the title track we find Chris Monroy from the seminal Skeletal Remains as guest vocal. 11 songs to enclos...

Rejoice In Moribund - Equality Through Obliteration

Rejoice In Moribund is one of those obscure bands that don’t really have a lot of information on them out there. Metal Archives cites a Rejoice In Moribund from the Netherlands that split in 2010 that performed funeral doom, which is exactly what this music is, this is a revival of the project after so many years with a new promo/demo in 20...

Blastanus - Beyond

After years of silence, Finland’s death grinders Blastanus is back in action! Their music can be described as a cross between Behemoth and Aborted and it hits hard, but with a few surprises here and there. Described as ‘sax grind’ one can expect something out of the ordinary, even after a 10 year absence between albums. One can definitely hear the...
