CANNIBAL CORPSE – Red Before Black

CANNIBAL CORPSE – Red Before Black

Every time a band with the dimension of Cannibal Corpse records an album, the fans of more extreme music have a good reason to be cheerful. “Red Before Black” continues their brutality tradition, noticeable in their sound combined with zombie stories, murder lyrics and bloody apocalyptic visions. The album includes everything their long time fans could [...]

PROCESS OF GUILT – Black Earth

PROCESS OF GUILT – Black Earth

If you ask most people what industrial metal is, few will answer correctly and even fewer will know which bands represent this metal subgenre. In fact, and at the top of his / her head, the regular metal fan will name Rammstein or Pain as industrial when those bands are everything but and ignore real [...]

Their new opus “E” is based on the legends and philosophy behind the ancient rune with the same name.

BLUT AUS NORD – “Deus Salutis Meae”

BLUT AUS NORD – “Deus Salutis Meae”

Little can be said about Blut Aus Nord other than fascinating. The 23 year-stretch has proved to be a rather prolific career spanning 12 full-length albums and a handful of EP’s drenched in experimentation and a fuck-all trademark attitude since it’s very beginning. Unsurprisingly, “Deus Salutis Meae” treads the same path: it’s an album that’s [...]

FROM NORTH – From North

FROM NORTH – From North

The self-titled debut album of the Swedish band From North presents a balanced metal based on the Norse mythology. Noticeable in their music are the influences from Pagan metal bands with folk melodies,  while their main influence is Bathory. “Volund the Smith” opens the journey that this album comprises. A pleasant and well balanced track [...]

MAJOR PARKINSON – Blackbox

MAJOR PARKINSON – Blackbox

Major Parkinson upcoming, and 4th release, has been entitled “Blackbox”. And like in a blackbox you can expect to find a bit of everything. Incorporating elements from radically different styles they  produce some unconventional sonorities. This Norwegian band has proven before their tendency for the theatrical and cinematographic songs. On this release, they levelled up [...]

MALLORY – Sonora RF Part II

MALLORY – Sonora RF Part II

Mallory seems like everything but an European band. With heavy blues hard rock root, the frenchman quartet makes us take a tour into the neo-american urban myths, with a heavy trend for storytelling. In fact Mallory is nothing but their muse, that meets the french quartet in a bar, a invites them into a ride [...]

GRAVE PLEASURES – Motherblood

GRAVE PLEASURES – Motherblood

The listener might be familiar with the first effort of this band under the name of Beastmilk, but this is the second album as Grave Pleasures. “Motherblood” is the continuation of the improvement that the band started to develop on it’s previous record, where  the heaviness in some guitars was still lacking. “Motherblood” brings that [...]

KADAVAR – Rough Times

KADAVAR – Rough Times

Do you crave for heavy fuzzing guitars with psych melodies and a retro sound from an era where people were really passionate about music? Kadavar and their new album “Rough Times”, the fourth of their career, is the listener’s answer. Their sound blends Black Sabbath with garage rock, spiced up with a pinch of Led [...]

The new album from Polish death metal band Decapitated was released on 7th of July and is named “Anticult”.  Composed by only eight songs, the highly awaited seventh studio full-length took three years to make and shows us a band which sounds more mature and becomes closer to the Death/Groove scene, rather than the Technical [...]

DEMOTIONAL – Discovery

DEMOTIONAL – Discovery

dEmotional is a Swedish band which mixes melodic death metal with alternative and electronic elements. “Discovery” is their 3rd full-length effort. In a first impression, it continues the style explored in the previous 2 records “Tarassis” (2014) and “State Of Denial” (2013). Even if the most famous expressions in the music scene is “punk’s not [...]
