Einvigi - Yö Kulje Kanssani

For once, I am going to review a post black metal and rock album or from another style? In fact we get lost in the musical classification as the influences take you to folk, black, psychedelic and rock. Only one thing remains certain is that we are staying in the land of the 1000 lakes or Finland for the uninitiated. Einvigi, since it is about...

Serpents Oath - Ascension

Serpents Oath ascend to the next level of their story with the 2nd chapter of the Lucifer rise to power entitled “Ascension.” More rounded out and diverse than their debut, the album shows all the promise a straightforward black metal fan should expect: icy riffs (but not quite Immortal icy) that cut like razors, thundering drums that hurt with pre...

In Nothingness - Black Sun Funeral

Taking listeners on a blast from the late 90s, Japanese one man band In Nothingness lands its debut with a strong mix of more classic melodic death metal.

Hex - Behold The Unlighted

Hex unleash another slab of death doom to begrudge the ears; this time it is a ‘concept’ EP surrounding ‘Darkness.’ While it may seem a little cliché the concept is interesting enough for this Spanish doom death quintet, and compared their humble beginnings back in 2012, “Behold the Unlighted” continues to truck down the same path of sound. A death...

Gorebringer - Terrified Beyond Measure

“Terrified Beyond Measure” is the second full length effort from U.K.’s Gorebringer and it hits just as heard as their debut. It is a little deceiving from the group name and album covers that this isn’t a brutal death metal group in the vein of the likes of Vehemence or Cannibal Corpse, but upon the first jump into ‘The Bottomless Pit’ one gets to...

Heaving Earth - Darkness Of God

Heaving Earth, at least for the writer, are one of the few extreme bands that have made consistency their daily modus operandi. Regardless of the fashions or the commercialization that some strands of death metal are going through in recent years, Heaving Earth continue to propose themselves with their personal music. Innovative, acrobatic, visiona...

Debridement - Compositions Of Decomposition

"Compositions Of Decomposition" is the second full length for this British one man band. 4 years after the first full length of 2018 and mr Connor Brown masked under the poetic name of Debridement, strikes with this new atrocity and here we are to see what has changed since then. Samples here make a stand.
