Weak Aside – Forward into Darkness

On Weak Aside’s last album, The Next Offensive, I had to go after the band’s lackluster moniker as the everything was else was so damn solid. This time, the German warmongers are just as good as before, so I’ll go after that eyesore of an album cover…. I digress, Forward Into Darkness continues the band’s confident and […]

Deadborn – Dogma Anti God

In what has already been an unbelievably busy year for technical, brutal death metal, it has been almost impossible to keep up.  With so many bigger releases this year like: Hate Eternal, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Aborted, and Monstrosity ( Just to name a few).  It would be quite easy to miss out a lot of […]

Pyrexia – Unholy Requiem

Long Island’s Pyrexia return with their 5th long player and with a host of new cast members how can CEO, Owner, Manager, Founding member, guitarist, Chris Basile keep it together, you ask? Well the bastid does and I’ve known Mr. Basile for quite a long time, but he is a riff machine. Let’s bring in […]

Serocs – The Phobos/Deimos Suite

It is no secret my love of the releases of Everlasting Spew Records knows no bounds.  They continue to put out incredible release after incredible release.  This might be one of their best ones of the year. International Super group Serocs puts on a literal clinic with their 2018 release The Phobos/Deimos Suite.  Where to […]

Slaughterday – Abattoir EP

I dug the 2014 debut, Nightmare Vortex, from these German, Autopsy lovin’ ( Slaughterday is a song from the bands Mental Funeral album ) fiends, but for some reason completely missed the 2016 follow up, Laws of the  Occult, which has been rectified since getting this EP for review, and its a little barnstormer of an EP The […]

Depravity – Evil Upheaval

This is death metal.  This is just DEATH FUCKING METAL.  I mean after 8-10 good spins of this album, that’s about the best way to sum this up.  If you haven’t heard of Depravity, it might be because they’re in the middle of the ocean on the continent of Australia, and this is their first […]

Grotesquery, The – The Lupine Anathema and other Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre

To say I was pleased as Punch when I saw the new album, The Lupine Anathema and other Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre, from The Grotesquery in the review queue, here at Teeth of the Divine, is more than just an understatement. Considering the fact that the band had seemed to call it […]

Neoceasar – 11:11

Forgive me if you will, for as much as I like to use band comparisons for the ease and convenience of conveyance, I don’t want to be that guy who constantly mentions one band while reviewing another…but I’m gonna be that guy who constantly mentions one band while reviewing another. Though in the case of […]

Skeletal Remains – Devouring Mortality

California’s Skeletal Remains have composed and performed one of the year’s best death metal albums with their 3rd studio full length record Devouring Mortality.  The attention to detail exhibited is outstanding.  Starting off with Dan Seagrave’s brilliant cover artwork (Morbid Angel, Entombed, Malevolent Creation), these guys clearly wanted to present the look of an early […]

Infected Dead – Archaic Malevolence

If you need a bit of an energy jolt for that one writing project you can’t quite finish and you don’t want another can of RedBull, may I suggest listening to the latest from Infected Dead? I will say this upfront, Just by looking at the cover, I was expecting a standard run of the […]

Sentient Horror – The Crypts Below EP

Sentient Horror‘s debut 2016 album, Ungodly Forms was a killer release of Stockholm styled death metal that gave the likes of Entrails a run for their money, despite hailing from New Jersey. And now the band is back with a 5 track, 20 minute, stop gap EP between albums, and it shows a slightly different […]

Deathmarch – Dismember EP

Cut from the same cloth as such old school classic death metal bands bands like Entombed, Dismember, and Grave, Netherlands quartet Deathmarch have put together a pretty tasty little debut EP.  It consists of 5 tracks that total right at 21 minutes and is a perfect fix when you want to get back to basics. […]

Scalpel – Methods to Delusion

Based on the cover, name and album title, I was fully bracing for some thrash metal here, but it turns out Massachusetts’ Scalpel are a death metal band with a fondness of older 90s death metal and East Coast Death metal. There’s not much that needs to much explanation here. Scalpel’s second effort of no […]

Faceless Burial – Grotesque Miscreation

“Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Faceless Burial are a power trio of unimaginable death metal might. Theirs is an unremittingly dark and dexterous sound which draws in a variety of death metal traditions: the gooey grind of early ’90s Finland, the spiraling surge of classic Tampa, the bazooka-blown fury of old Brazil, the atonal angularity ushered […]

Genocide Pact – Order of Torment

If you enjoyed Temple of Void‘s Lords of Death last year, Washington D.C’s Genocide Pact will make you happy with their second album, their Relapse Records debut, Order of Torment as it present the same sort of simple, groove based mid tempo doom/death metal, just with a little less experimentation. As with Temple of Void,  […]

Boia – Chivalry of Death EP

The question of whether you really need to check out Boia, and their debut EP, Chivalry of Death, is simply this: “How much do you bleed for Altars of Madness?” Now don’t get me wrong, any self-respecting metalhead has at least one copy of the seminal debut from Morbid Angel in their collection, but that […]

Ruin – Plague Transmissions: Vol. 1

California’s  Ruin have been around since 1991 with an array of cassettes, Demos and splits under their belt. There are rumors of the band being arrested and institutionalized and they are clouded in mystery. But finally released they their debut album in 2017, Drown in Blood in the spring of last year, and it was […]

Pestilence – Hadeon

This past year has surely been a busy year for Mr. Patrick Mameli, singer and guitarist for Pestilence.  Their first four albums were remastered and reissued in deluxe formats and I reviewed all four of them here.  Perfect reissues!  Patrick has assembled a brand new Pestilence line-up:  Calin Paraschiv on lead guitar, Tilen Hudrap on […]

Scorched – Hymns From the Cellar Demo Cassette

Delaware’s Scorched impressed me when I saw them live, recently on the Morta Skuld and Embalmer tour and they were cool dudes. Kick ass tour!! I picked up the debut album, Echoes of Dismemberment. This album destroys and I immediately recognized a bunch of their songs, from the live show. The singer Matt Kapa gave […]

Decaying – To Cross the Line

For three albums now, Finland’s Decaying have delivered their Bolt Thrower/Asphyx take on war themed death metal with solid results. But with the switch from Hellthrasher Productions to FDA Records, the band appear to have deiced to change things up a bit and spread their creative wings a little. Not that the band still does […]

Humiliation – No Escape

I’ve been a big fan of Malaysia’s Humiliation, brand of war inspired death metal, for a number of years. They release an album every year, along with some splits to boot. The band is always writing new music. As we speak they are writing their 9th album. Their brand of Bolt Thrower/classic Obituary/Hail of Bullets […]

Gravestone – Sickening

I’ve been impressed with new label Raw Skull Recordz and their early releases from Bullcreek and Graceless, but the debut full length  from Sweden’s Gravestone is clearly the label’s best effort so far (at least until the new Just Before Dawn?) . You know exactly what you are getting here as the band features Penki Samuelsson from […]

In Shadows and Dust – A Fleur de Peau

If you have ever asked yourself “what happened if black one man black metal was rendered with a classic Swedish death metal guitar tone?”, Frenchman Stephane Thirion is here to answer your question with his self released third album,  A fleur de peau (‘Sensitive’? ‘On edge’?). First off , I was thankful this wasn’t a Kataklysm […]

Massive Assault – Mortar

It’s been 5 years since Death Strike, the solid second effort from this Dismember/Grave worshiping Dutch act, and although this was released on vinyl and digital last year, I waited with baited breath for the CD version from FDA Records, and it was worth the wait. The formula is the same; well executed Dismember meets  […]

Bestialord – Law of the Burning

Hailing from Wichita, Kansas, Bestialord is a killer new project from band members that served time in kick ass outfits Manilla Road and Sanctus Infernum.  Guitarist/vocalist Mark Anderson played on one of my favorite latter days MR records Spiral Castle.  Bringing along his SI bandmate Chris Johnson on drums with bassist Rob Harris completing the […]
