Noisem – Cease To Exist

Baltimore Maryland’s death/grind band Noisem return after a 4 year album hiatus to bring us Cease to Exist, their third and most devastating album to date. Several things have happened since their monstrous Blossoming Decay album from 2014. Sometimes fame too fast can have effects on a band. When Noisem’s debut Agony Defined came out […]

Destruction – Sentence of Death/Infernal Overkill/Eternal Devastation (Reissues)

I had no idea Germany’s Destruction have been around since 1982-Christ Almighty.  I’ve been a fan since their 1984 Sentence of Death ep.  Guess I’ve lost track of time and I have not followed the band since the 1990 Cracked Brain album.  So this is Part I of my Destruction reissue review series.  Germany’s High […]

Misery Index – Rituals of Power

Misery Index return with their 6th full-length album, Rituals of Power and for me this is the best album, thus far for 2019.  Holy Crap, Misery Index is on fire.  As much as I liked their last album, The Killing Gods, Rituals of Power is more aggressive, upping their death/grind approach to the nth degree!  […]

Humiliation – Regiment

Malaysia’s Humiliation return with their 9th long player and singer, Bear Bee recently informed me they will be recording their 10th full-length album quite soon.  By now you know what’s in store for you with Humiliation’s writing and musical direction.  War-themed death metal lyrics with music heavily influenced by: Bolt Thrower/Hail of Bullets/Asphyx, Six Feet […]

Necrotic Mutation – Mutanthology

One of the purveyors of the Canadian early death metal scene has always been Rimouski’s, Necrotic Mutation.  I still have the Sepulchre of the Suffering on cassette, from 1993, when I was tape trading back in the day.  Necrotic Mutation had more of an underground cult following and never really got their shit together to […]

Deathrow – Riders of Doom/Raging Steel (Reissues)

Germany’s now defunct Deathrow would have been classified as the second-tier thrash wave when their brand of thrash metal erupted in the mid-80’s.  Their debut album Riders of Doom was first released as Satan’s Gift and eventually as Riders of Doom that same year.  Two different album covers, however most would agree the Riders of […]

Demonbreed – Hunting Heretics EP

Germany’s Demonbreed hit the heavy home run on their 2016 debut album, Where Gods Come to Die.  Bludgeoning Swedish inspired death metal heaviness and a well-written album through and through.  So while the underground waits with bated breath for album #2, Demonbreed provides a little taste with an ep in the form of Hunting Heretics. […]

Anthrax – State of Euphoria (Re-Issue)

For me, the best Anthrax album is Among the Living from 1987.  However, Anthrax wasted little time with getting their fourth full-length released with the 1988, State of Euphoria record.  Anthrax had already firmly established themselves with their patented NY stylized crunch thrash metal guitar tone and were already touring worldwide.  The airing of the […]

Foaming At The Mouth – Writhing

Upstate New York’s Foaming At The Mouth have been kicking it around for 5 years.  They’re listed as in the Adirondacks, but we all know Kyle lives in Antarctica-no fooling this guy.  The 2 piece is comprised of Internal Bleeding’s, Kyle Eddy on drums/vocals and Jeff Leifer on guitars/vocals.  Writhing is their labor of love […]

Deceased – Ghostly White

With the 7th full-length album, Ghostly White, from long-time running act, Deceased you know what you’re going to get-or do you…? I’ve followed the band for close to 3 decades now and have been a fan since the beginning. The brilliant mixture of death/thrash metal with classic metal and some NWOBHM, for me is insanely […]

Sacrificial Slaughter/Coathanger Abortion/Rottenness – The Hate Divide Split CD

This is a split cd which also includes the following bands, in addition to Sacrificial Slaughter:  Coathanger Abortion and Rottenness.  Mike Juliano’s HPGD label has always been one of favorite underground labels where I have discovered new and exciting bands.  If you have never heard either one of these bands, this is a good place […]

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 […]

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 […]

Debridement – Drowning in a Cesspool of Malform and Malady

Ireland’s slam master, Connor Brown (Oncology, Putrefy), has finally released the debut album for his solo project-Debridement, with quite a lovely name for an album: Drowning in a Cesspool of Malform and Malady.  We get 10 songs of porno-grindish slamming death metal at right under 30 minutes. Opening with “Adrenochrome”.  I pick up on a […]

Caducity – The Weiliaon Wielder Quest (Reissue)

This Belgian band has been around since the late 80’s and The Weiliaon Wielder Quest came out in 1995.  Marquee Records, under the care of Armando Pereira, has brought this obscure album back into the light.  I never heard of this band and they have three other albums.  This is their debut and the music […]

Excommunicated – Death Devout

Excommunicated have been around for 8 years and in that time, released a comp in 2011 and their debut full-length in 2011 Skeleton Key.  After quite some time Chad Kelly said F-this, I cannot continue to keep eating po-boys all the time, in Louisiana, let’s put  something out.  Putting down the huge sandwiches, Chad picked […]

Asylum – Concealed Death (Reissue)

This really took me by surprise. I had never heard of Australia’s Asylum. Judging by the album cover you would think this was a death metal band. Asylum play really good thrash metal and Marquee Records has put together an awesome reissue compiling both of the bands releases. Their Slaughterhouse ep from 2013 and Concealed […]

Kill Everything – Scorched Earth

We all know Comatose Music is known for their incredibly brutal roster of death metal bands that are vicious.  If you were sleeping to long or too busy listening to some country music, than you may have missed former Devourment members splintered off and created a new Texas beast of musical ferocity-Kill Everything, in 2016.  […]

Altar – Youth Against Christ/Ego Art (Reissue)

Finally we get proper reissues of the first 2 classic death metal albums from Altar.  Altar are still currently active, hail from the Netherlands, but the only releases I was ever familiar with are the first 2 albums, Youth Against Christ from 1994 and Ego Art from 1996.  In conjunction with Urubuz Records and Displeased […]

Inverted – The Shadowland (Reissue)

Inverted were a Swedish death metal band who released 2 full-length albums in the 90’s. Long out of print, Marquee Records brings us an excellent sounding reissue of Inverted’s debut album, The Shadowland. Originally released in 1996, The Shadowland has a lot of good elements. I remember hearing about them years ago, but this is […]

Attomica – The Trick

Brazil’s Attomica have been around since 1985, stayed around for a bit and then reformed in 2004, went on hiatus again in 2009 and in 2015 came back. I have seen the band logo before but never heard them before. The Trick is their 5th album and they play speed/thrash metal, the way it was […]

Psychic Possessor – Toxin Diffusion (Reissue)

About muthaeffin’ time Brazil’s Psychic Possessor’s 1988 debut, Toxin Diffusion, was finally released on cd. Thank you to original label Cogumelo and Marquee Records for finally getting this done. In the 1980’s I fell in love with the Brazilian metal scene. I used to trade vinyl with Brazilian pen pals I would find in ‘zines. […]

Interview With Revel in Flesh

In 2012 I was quite impressed with Germany’s Revel in Flesh debut album, Deathevokation.  Really taking the Swedish bludgeoning guitar tone and brutalizing throughout the entire album.  There was and continues to be a decent amount of melody on all their releases and the song structures and catchy tunes stick in the listener’s head long after the music is turned off.  Since then Revel in Flesh has released 3 other ferocious death metal albums and the new one Relics of the Deathkult is actually a compilation of prior 7″ and split eps.  As always the care and concern with presentation has always remained top shelf with Revel in Flesh. Their album covers and layout designs are some of the best in the entire scene.  I developed a friendship with the singer years ago and Ralf is a die-hard death metal fan who just so happens to have a monstrous voice.  He has a variety of tones going from the brutal deep lows (my favorite) and higher pitched monster screams.  He not only loves classic death metal but has a very good understanding of classic metal, in general-which I surely appreciate.  Once you read this interview, please pick up all their releases and like their FB page and spread the word.  Also, buy some merch from them and any US promoters please get Revel in Flesh to the States to play some damn shows.  They are one of the best death metal acts around. 

Convocation – Scar Across

So apparently when LL from Desolate Shrine fame touches something it turns to gold. His new creation is Convocation and along with Marko Neuman on vox this Scars Across debut album is a punishing mix of doom death. 4 songs clocking in at 50 minutes this is some pained and anguished brutal and depressive stuff. […]

TeethoftheDivine’s very own contributor and early Internal Bleeding vocalist , Frank Rini will be making a guest vocal appearance on the up coming Internal Bleeding album, Corrupting Influence coming out this fall on Unique Leader Records. Rini served as the vocalist for Internal Bleeding from 1993-1997, and performed on the band’s debut Voracious Contempt and its […]
