Nile – Vile Nilotic Rites

When I reviewed Nile’s fourth album, Annihilation of the Wicked way back in 2005, I mused how long the band could keep up the high quality and continue  the  long running Egyptian themes. Well 14 years and 5 albums later, that answer is pretty clear. Even with a bit of a lull with 2012s At […]

Flesh Tomb – Torn From The Womb of The Sky EP

Born from the most treacherous and violent sewers in Delaware, Flesh Tomb unleash their debut ep-Torn From The Womb of The Sky.  Zach Wilson on vox, Ryan Giordano-guitar, Jack Mulvanerty on bass and Ladon Vance on drums this 6 song 14 minute ep will fly by you so fast, heads will be lopped off pathetic […]

Wormed – Metaportal EP

Spain’s Wormed, I can’t believe it, have already been around for 20 years.  Holy crap how time flies.  I would assume this little ditty of an ep, in the spherical form of Metaportal is a precursor to Wormed’s fourth full-length album.  I have been a huge fan of the band and have met them on […]

Demiurgon – The Oblivious Lore

Wow! I know I talk up Everlasting Spew Records quite a bit when I review their artists but I cannot help it. They put out such amazing releases! The trend doesn’t stop with Italian brutal tech death metallers Demiurgon and their 2019 2nd full length album The Oblivious Lure. It has been four years since […]

Pathology – Reborn to Kill

I’m not sure what is more surprising- that this is Pathology’s 10th album since 2006, or that its released on Pavement Music/Entertainment, once a prolific extreme metal label, now home to the likes of Dishwalla, Puddle of Mud, Flaw and Tantric. Either way, album number 10 sticks to the tenets of the last few albums, […]

Prophecy – Foreseen Scriptures

Texas has quite a nice death metal scene.  With Devourment, Kill Everything,   and many others…but don’t forget about Prophecy.  With Foreseen Scriptures as their 5th album, being newly released I would love to see them do some major touring, because this album destroys from beginning to end.  You want pure brutal American blood-flowing death […]

Disentomb – The Decaying Light

The sophomore effort from Australia’s Disentomb, Misery was a very late discovery and addition to my 2014 year end list, but that won’t be an issue with the band’s stellar third effort, as I’ve had this beast for a while now, and it’s easily one of the year’s best death metal records, even as we […]

Devourment – Obscene Majesty

Chug…chug… chug….blast…blast…blast…limbs are crushed…sinkholes erupt…lava explodes….ripped off heads…atomic blast…sky is torn…chest collapsing…atmosphere no more…planet dies……………….Yes, Devourment are back with their 5th album-Obscene Majesty, and their longest album yet at 47 minutes. They figured let us just bludgeon the listener more and more and if we do it longer than the beginning above part of this […]

Organectomy – Existential Disconnect

I have been looking forward to reviewing this since reviewing last year’s reissue of their 2017 album Domain of the Wretched.   I was highly impressed with the meticulousness of these sick slamming death weirdos from Christchurch New Zealand.   Existential Disconnect does not disappoint and the bar has really been risen with their 2019 effort Existential […]

Embludgeonment – Barn Burner

It’s been 6 years since New Jersey’s Embludgeonment released their brutal debut album, Infinite Regress.  Now after the wait their follow-up, Barn Burner sees its release on the excellent Comatose Music label.  How about let’s bring in John Hartman from Mortal Decay to add that extra bit of brutal spice.  BAM!!!  9 songs in 33 […]

Meathook – Crypts, Coffins, Corpses

Do you like your death metal old school but brutal? Do you like your death metal sloppy and meaty? Do you like your death metal to be a mix of the first Cannibal Corpse album’s zombified, fetid blasts , Incantation’s oozing miasma and Devourment’s punishing grooves? Please let me introduce you to the third album from Arizona’s Meathook. With […]

Lividity – Perveseverance

I’ve heard of Lividity, veterans of the Chicago/Illinois brutal death metal scene since the mid 90s, but have not really heard them or owned any of their albums. Ive seen them lumped in with the likes of Gorgasm to Cannibal Corpse and of course Deaden and Broken Hope, and after hearing the band’s 6th album, Perveseverance, […]

Wurm Flesh – Excoriation Evisceration

Sacramento’s Wurm Flesh is Comatose Music’s latest signing (at the writing of this review), and they are exactly what you would expect from Comatose Music in 2018/19; no frills, brutal death metal that sticks rigidly to the label’s formula and delivers the goods, nothing more, nothing less. Samples? Check. Something awful happening to a naked chick on the […]

Torturous Inception – Arcane Dominion

For the last 7 years, New York’s Torturous Inception have been slinging their brand of brutal tech-slam death metal. I’ve heard smatterings of their 2013 debut, The Parable of Scorched Earth, but do not own it. It’s a good intro to their sound. 2017 began the partnership with the band and Amputated Vein Records when […]

Agonal Breathing – Pure Agony

As it goes, I found myself in a part of my music cycle where the lowest tuned riffs written by the lowest forms of subterranean life is what I seek.  So I go get lost in the pit of decaying offal that is the Slam Worldwide YouTube channel until I find something new that hits […]

Gutslit – Amputheatre

Even though he has long championed his home country (India) and other Asian bands , Transcending Obscurity Records owner Kunal Choksi has outdone himself with the second effort from Mumbia’s Gutslit. You’d would have no idea these guys were from India once you hit play, as the band culls from a plethora of brutal influences […]

Voracious Scourge – Our Demise EP

Voracious Scourge’s debut release, …Our Demise is a monstrous ep comprising some of the best members in death metal.  You have Adrie Kloosterwaard from Sinister, doing the vox, Mike Smith, ex-Suffocation drummer, Jason McIntyre and Lance Strickland, from Suture on guitar and bass.  This 5-song ep is so damn killer.””You think you know well played, […]

Xenomorphic Contamination – Chasm of No Return EP

This tasty little Italian brutal death EP comes to us from two members of Vomit the Soul, Beheaded, Antropofagus, Septycal Gorge, and Putridity. To be honest, I had only heard Antropofagus before checking out this EP, but given that this has been a steady player for me all month, I will have to look into the others. […]

Benighted – Carnivore Sublime

Although they started back in 2000 as a black/death act with nods to early Opeth (hence the band name), now France’s Benighted is a filthy, ultra-groovy and much different beast altogether. Most of their albums, including 2011’s excellent (and, for me, list-topping) Asylum Cave, are like being flung around inside a brutal death/grind bounce house packed with […]

Maveth – Coils of the Black Earth

Sometimes all you need is some cool cover art to pull you in. A black and wraith-like six-armed winged deity, bristling with weapons and riding a flying serpent past a rotting Lovecraftian cairn piled high with skulls. Part Frazetta and part 18th-century woodcut, lovingly created by Chilean illustrator Daniel Desecrator. It’s simple and stark and […]
