    The Fallen Entities

    By Simon Milburn | 23 April, 2019

    Who remembers Incubus? Anyone who instantly named that limp wristed funk-nu-metal-alt-rock ‘90’s band from California behind pap such as “Drive” and “Wish You Were Here”, hand in your metal card now. I’m t...

    The Wings of War

    By Simon Milburn | 18 April, 2019

    New Jersey’s finest thrashers Overkill are just about as regular as clockwork when it comes to album releases. After 2017’s excellent The Grinding Wheel, the band churned out their third live album Live in Overhausen ...

    Divina Autem Et Aniles

    By Simon Crawley | 16 April, 2019

    There's nothing like a ferociously morbid start to the year and especially when there's a mass of riffs and dark melody partial to such a beginning. My first contribution of 2019, in the way of heavy metal ramblings here, is my take on the first f...

    As the Kingdom Drowns

    By Chris Gibbs | 12 November, 2018

    Psycroptic are swiftly approaching their 20th anniversary. In that time they’ve consistently proven they run a relatively tight ship, with six full length records under their belt and only a couple of line-up changes. The most sig...

    Hypnagogia

    By Michael O'Brien | 08 November, 2018

    Amongst the litany of bands playing within the margins of the funeral doom space, few have cultivated a sound that is as instantly recognisable as that of New Jersey’s Evoken. Over the course of their rather lengthy career, they have managed...

    The Outer Ones

    By Simon Crawley | 05 November, 2018

    Full-length studio album number seven from Boston, Massachusetts’ Revocation is a significant one. Its release coincides with the band’s career at a juncture in its trajectory. That perhaps sounds too dramatic, but Revocation has, in t...

    Cerement

    By Simon Crawley | 11 October, 2018

    I will admit that what initially drew my attention to this release was learning of the link to Trap Them (also signed to Prosthetic Records) through the band’s bassist, Galen Baudhuin. He is Infera Bruo’s vocalist and guitarist and he ...

    Head Cage

    By Simon Crawley | 03 October, 2018

    Significant foundations were laid earlier by the likes of Napalm Death and Repulsion, but grindcore never quite saw Pig Destroyer coming. This was in 1997 when vocalist J.R. Hayes and Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s Scott Hull formed the band, which...

    Overtures of Blasphemy

    By Simon Milburn | 09 September, 2018

    As one of the pioneering bands from the flourishing Florida (U.S.A.) death metal scene in the very early '90s, it was somewhere after their move to Earache Records that my attention waned. There’s no doubt their first three albums are certif...
