Revocation – Netherheaven

Sometimes a promo comes out that I just need to review. The promo in question here is Revocation’s new slab, Netherheaven. However, it was about third or fourth in line, I thought I had a lot more time, and then the boss comes in, knocks my macaroni and cheese off my desk into my lap, […]

Slaughterday – Tyrants of Doom

For almost a decade, German duo Slaughterday has been rendering their Autopsy worshiping ( Slaughterday is a song from the Mental Funeral album) tones with  3 albums and a couple of EPs. And with album number 4, even with the word ‘doom’ in the title, they continue that trend with another killer album. With an album […]

Heads for the Dead – III: The Great Conjuration

I was ready to fight to review this. Not literally, though as it would have been between myself, Frank, and Steve. I’ve met Frank and I’m more than 100% certain he could kick my ass. While I’ve not met Steve, some of the fish he’s caught rival me in size, so I’m not confident. With […]

I AM – Eternal Steel

I randomly grabbed the 2018 release, Hard 2 Kill, in a used bin back in 2018, and was pleasantly surprised with the Southern groovy take on death metal/thrash from these Texans. But I never really appeared on my radar again until I saw the fucking epic album cover for their newest effort, and thought “Oh […]

Sedimentum – Suppuration Morphogenesiaque

I’m sure you’re familiar with the snare crack at the beginning of Cannibal Corpse’s “Devoured by Vermin”, 1,2,3, 4… BLAAAAAARGGGGHHHH! Well, that’s how Sedimentum start off their debut Suppuration Morphogenesiaque, with a quick snare count and then the brutality of “Krypto Chronique II” KICKS (yes capitals) into automatic, 0-60 overdrive. The track slows to a […]

Massacre – Mythos EP

Well lookie here, it seems Kam Lee and crew have snuck back into our presence just mere months since their full-length release Resurgence landed, declaring Massacre was back to to swallow your fucking soul. With Mythos we’re only getting four tracks stretched across fifteen minutes, but thats okay, less is more so they say, plus […]

Vomit Forth – Seething Malevolence

I think someone at Century Media follows the underground and most relevant to my point the American death metal scene, very closely. They have poached from the awesome small California label, Maggot Stomp with Sanguisugabogg, Frozen Soul and now Connecticut’s Vomit Forth. The ‘Bogg and Frozen Soul are experiencing massive success with their albums, videos […]

Katakomba – Katakomba

I imagine being a Swedish death metal band, playing Swedish-styled, HM2 death metal AND hailing from Stockholm carries a little weight with it, what with Entombed  Grave and Dismember all hailing from your hometown. However, youngsters Katakomba are up to the task and have delivered a fine, if not damn brilliant homage to their hometown […]

Misgivings – Misgivings

Misgivings is yet another damn fine French band label owner Alex Dolorem has sent to me. Interestingly enough, this self-titled album is their debut yet they’ve been around since 1991. The band has released many demos, went on hiatus but returned a few years ago. This is 9 songs in 35 minutes and the band […]

Castrator – Defiled in Oblivion

In the history of Death Metal, a solid debut album is a must. Bands have lived and died on the quality of that crucial first release, and luckily for international, all-female collective Castrator, they have a brutal as fuck first release that is like a Venom Prison-styled punch to the gut. Not a knockoff by any […]

Disma – Earthendium EP

New Jersey’s doom death band Disma return with an ep full of new material with three great songs. I’m still hoping there’s a full length in the works as their 2011 debut Towards the Megalith was released some time ago. As an ardent Disma supporter of a rack of their merch, all their music and reviewing their last several eps/comp […]

Cellblock Autopsy – Fertile Soil of Immorality

Thank you to the SBDC (Slamming Brutal Deathmetal Community) Instagram for this discovery.  Their label and promotion account is regularly posting the newest brutal death metal.  As much as I like the genre a ton of the stuff I see is rather indistinguishable from the next.  Maybe 1 in 50 has either a unique take […]

Maul – Seraphic Punishment

As a listener and certainly as a reviewer, there’s always a certain point when you are checking out a potential album where you say to yourself “Nope, I don’t like this” and move on ” or say “Yep, I’m digging this” and keep listening. On Seraphic Punishment, the debut album (though they have been releasing […]

Werewolves – From the Cave to the Grave

Werewolves don’t like you. In fact, they fucking hate you. They said so on the first track of their last album What A Time to be Alive, and on track 2 of this new one, they flat out say they are better than you and are genuinely shocked that you think you’re worthy of buying […]

Horror Within – Awaiting Extinction

Behind the scenes here at Teeth of the Divine, we’ve often discussed what the next chapter of Deathcore is going to look like. Thanks to Lorna Shore‘s insane (and well-deserved) popularity, we all know that the whole Blackened/Symphonic Deathcore thing being the latest style du jour that everyone and their brothers, parents, cousins, and dogs seem […]

Artificial Brain – Artificial Brain

Long Island NY’s Artificial Brain returns with their third album, a self-titled one. Prior to the release vocalist and my friend Will Smith announced he was leaving in order to focus on being the singer for Afterbirth, also Long Island natives. Will’s departure and vocal style will be missed but I’m not sure who the […]

Inexorable – Imperious

You have to admire the balls on the PR company that sent out the email for the promos for Imperious, the debut album from Colorado duo Inexorable…”For Fans Of: Dying Fetus, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Dimmu Borgir and Children of Bodom“. Fucking hell!!!!!!- Sign me up! Admittedly, the bait and switch worked on me. Hook, […]

Molder – Engrossed in Decay                  

You know that meme of the kid with the “stank face?” That’s what the new album by Molder (I hardly know her), Engrossed in Decay makes me do for nearly 50 minutes. It’s that hoped-for but ultimately unexpected style of filthy. The kind of nastiness not unlike the time you hooked up in the back […]

Intoxicated – Watch You Burn

A couple years back, I had the great pleasure of reviewing Intoxicated’s long-awaited comeback (whether or not you knew it) EP, Walled. I’ll let you go back and re-read that review for the very long, complicated, but VERY interesting back story of the band’s history dating all the way back to 1990, but suffice to […]

Cabinet – Claustrophobic Dysentery

Here is yet another project from the mind of Matthew Schott (listed here as ‘Repulsive Dirtnap Casket Crusher’) with the help of some other mysteriously unknown figures (Filth Esophagus Vacuum: vocals, SixSixSix Chambers of Rotten Mold: guitars/leads,  Four Filthy Shelves of Putrid Decay: bass), to go along with Valdur, Oreamnos and Sxuperion. And what we […]

Writhing Shadows – Writhing Shadows

The last time I heard Alabama’s Writhing Shadows, its was when I reviewed a group of cassettes from then fledgling label, Gurgling Gore, that included featured Wharflurch and Seep. Well, both the label and band has been productive since then with numerous cassette releases, with Writhing Shadows having released a split, an EP, a single, […]

Misery Index – Complete Control

I’ve reviewed the last several releases from Misery Index and knowing singer/bassist Jason Netherton all these years from my Internal Bleeding time and his stint in Dying Fetus- well those were some legendary shows folks. Time flies and Complete Control is the bands seventh full length album. If you were expecting anything less than their […]

Holocausto Canibal – Cuerza Ferina

I had never heard of these guys prior to this release, full disclosure; I didn’t know they existed. They’ve been around since 1999, and since demo Opus I of that year, they’ve been extremely busy putting out a veritable shit load of music including 3 Eps, 4 split albums, 2 live albums and 6 full […]

Jungle Rot – A Call to Arms

There’s a new Jungle Rot album on the way, okay? At this point, let’s be honest with ourselves. You know what they bring to the table. You either like it or you don’t. This album is not likely to change your mind, so the real question is; Is this a good Jungle Rot album? Yeah. […]

Analepsy – Quiescence

Portugal’s Analepsy return with their second full length album Quiescence. Having been five years since their last release it is quite immediate that the production values and song writing have both stepped and slammed up. Opening things up with “Locus of Dawning” the guitars fade in with some cool layering and harmony. I can hear […]
