Simbiose - Trapped
Review by Ilham
Who the hell ever complains about grindcore songs being too long?


Domovoyd - Domovoyd
Review by Apothecary
If you've been paying attention to metal coming out of Finland, especially in the past five years, you'd know that the country has seen a considerable increase in the presence of psychedelic bands within the context of the genre. In 2013, Domovoyd proved themselves as willing to get in on this action with their debut, and in 2015, they're looking to solidify their status as formidable within it, an effort at which they certainly succeed.

Dekadent - Veritas
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if Anaal Nathrakh were a bit more like Devin Townsend? Well, you have now.


Hate - Crusade:Zero
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
It's easy to forget about Hate. You could very easily forget that you saw them opening for Overkill, of all bands, a few years back. You could just as easily forget that you were supposed to review their new album a couple of months ago. You might even forget that they opened for Vader ten feet in front of your face two hours ago.


Evoke Thy Lords - Boys! Raise Giant Mushrooms In Your Cellar!
Review by BitterCOld
Nearly 25 years ago Jello Biafra (formerly of Dead Kennedys) teamed up with Nomeansno to urge me to "Ride The Flume." Flash forward to 2015 and now Evoke Thy Lords is back encouraging me to ride the Floom.


Minsk - The Crash & The Draw
Review by BitterCOld
Nearly four years ago I sadly reported that Minsk was on indefinite hiatus. I also prophesied But before you ponder seppuku at this news, the band is named after a city which has shown historical resilience to invasions and razing. So who knows, maybe they, too, like their namesake, will return and rebuild. Or at least finish that album they mentioned working on and go out with a (sonic) boom. Happy days are here again. Roughly four years since...


Barren Earth - On Lonely Towers
Review by R'Vannith
Considering Barren Earth as a supergroup has never been necessitated. It's true that the musicians in question are already noteworthy for efforts elsewhere and currently lead busy lives in other bands. However, status external to Barren Earth no longer solely upholds the name, as the name has come to uphold itself with a tenable style their own. A third effort, On Lonely Towers, represents the band's continued development and change.

Ephel Duath - Pain Remixes The Known (2007)

It's always difficult to review a "Remix" album, even more when the remix consists in full techno music in the vein of Aphex Twin.This event is really hard to digest just because what we heard in the original album was way to impressive to say the least, then it seems that Ephel Duath does not follow that old adage "If it's not broken - don't fix it". The overall mix is not horrid or inadequate, on the contrary, the audio assault is marvelous, the "pro-tools"... (by Herzebeth)   Read more ››
