Visceral Disgorge – Slithering Evisceration

Baltimore’s brutal death metal band, Visceral Disgorge, burst onto the scene in 2011 with their scorching debut album-Ingesting Putridity.  I was an instant believer and reviewed the album, gave it high marks and interviewed the singer Travis Werner.   After meeting Travis at a local show and witnessing their brutal live performance we struck up […]

Infidel Reich – Reichenstein

Infidel Reich burst on the scene in 2016 and a year later they unleashed their scorching self-titled ep and now they are back with their debut album Reichenstein which came out at the tail end of 2019 and is just a monstrous and full throttle pedal to the old school metal albums. The supergroup of […]

Algebra – Pulse?

Switzerland’s Algebra’s debut album, Polymorph was released in 2012 and from that moment on I became a fan and interviewed drummer, Tony Sharp.  In 2014 they followed up their debut with Feed the Ego-yet another raging slab of well played thrash metal that harkens back to the Bay Area scene of the 80’s, a little bit of death/thrash, but infusing the […]

Fluids – Exploitative Practices

I had no idea New York’s awesome Mortician finally released an album after all these years…..oh wait…this is not Mortician????  Fluids-what the hell??  New to the scene, forming in 2018 from Arizona, Walter Hale on Drums/Synths/Programming, Jan Grotle on Guitar/Bass and Cole Jacobsen on Vocals, this trio of stoolbags have put out their debut Exploitative […]

Revel In Flesh – Hour of the Avenger

Germany’s and personal favorite Revel in Flesh return with their 5th long player and The Hour of the Avenger shows a more mature Revel in Flesh where they continue to allow their riffs to breathe a little longer.  I’ve been in touch with their singer, Ralf for years now and consider him a friend.  We […]

Obsequiae – The Palms of Sorrowed Kings

I am new to the Obsequiae hype train and after my good buddy Graham, from Deepsend Records-RIP, recommended this album to me, I could not be more than happier with his recommendation.  Under this name the band has been around for over a decade and released Suspended in the Brume of Eos in 2011 and […]

Day Of Doom – Epitaph of the Darklord

Long Island New York death metal act, Day of Doom return with their 5th album, Epitaph of the Darklord, on their own newly created label-3 Demon Records.  I reviewed their previous album, Descent of Humanity on here back in 2017 and I feel Epitaph of the Darklord is their finest work to date. Starting off […]

Vomit Forth – Northeastern Deprivation

Relatively new to the death metal scene, Connecticut’s Vomit Forth have been acquired by Maggot Stomp to take both the 2018 Vomit Forth demo and Inherit Laceration ep and throw them on a cd combining the 2 new songs in 2019, making up the Northeastern Deprivation for a total of 9 songs on this compilation […]

Horrific Demise – Excruciating Extermination

The mid-west part of the US has always been a hotbed of brutal and killer death metal.  This album features current and former members of bands such as: Lividity, Putrid Pile, Necrotic Disgorgement, Regurgitation and Gorgasm, just to name a few, in case you were counting.  Matt Bishop (longtime friend) on vocals/guitar, Tony Tipton-guitar, Phil […]

Blood Incantation – Hidden History of the Human Race

Hailing from Denver, Colorado Blood Incantation return with their sophomore album Hidden History of the Human Race, the follow-up to the monstrous 2016 debut, Starspawn, which I reviewed on this very site. In their existence since 2011 Blood Incantation has garnered a well-deserved reputation for their raging live show and yes live, they’re one of […]

Pentacle – Spectre of the Eight Ropes

Formed at the end of the 80’s Pentacle has remained a staple in the underground death metal scene and helping to push forth the Netherlands metal scene, which is one of the best, in my opinion.  With the members in various other bands and still to this day, we have Alex and Mike Verhoeven on […]

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 […]

Sanguisugabogg – Pornographic Seizures EP

Honestly the first time I saw the band name Sanguisugabogg I tried pronouncing it so quickly that it came out sounding like shish kabob.  Couple that with a logo that seems to be the new thing where it’s impossible to read so you’re spending your valuable time trying to decipher if you can find a […]

Exhorder – Mourn The Southern Skies

Lots of long overdue comeback albums this year: Possessed, Sacred Reich, Nocturnus and add Exhorder to that growing list too. Longtime original members from the first 2 classic albums Slaughter in the Vatican from 1990 and The Law in 1992, Kyle Thomas-vocals and Vinnie LaBella-guitar return to the fold to resurrect this once great, but […]

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 […]

Desecresy – Towards Nebulae

Finland’s Desecresy return with their 6th album and second as a one man act after Jarno Nurmi, vocals, departed after the Stoic Death album. Tommi Grönqvist continues along playing all instruments and singing and Towards Nebulae continues with the depressive, atmospheric and bulldozer heaviness we have come to expect from this great act. Opening with “The Gate”, this is one of […]

Warthrone – Crown of the Apocalypse

Virginia’s blackened death metal band, Warthrone, return with their second album, and this follow-up to their debut: Venomassacre, showcases the band pummel the listener again and again and again.  The band further stream lining their line-up with now Erik and his wife Kristel as the members.  Erik plays drums, guitars and now is back to […]

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 […]

Sacred Reich – Awakening

Arizona Thrash veterans , Sacred Reich, return with their first full length since, Heal, from 1996.  Awakening is their 5th full length and after reforming years ago the band has made it more than a reunion, because unlike a lot of bands reuniting Sacred Reich actually recorded a new album, rather than continuing to rest on their laurels and tour […]

Witch-Hunt – Darkened Anthology 1992-2002

Virginia’s Witch-Hunt were together for 10 years from 1992-2002 and played a very early form of death metal/thrash, which eventually went towards a black metal sound towards the last few years of their existence.  This anthology collection compiles the majority of their songs throughout their releases, which are: Both 1993 demo’s Born Dead and Fearless,  […]

Immortal Suffering – Preyed Upon

New Yorks’ Immortal Suffering return with their second full-length album and a real nice follow-up to their long awaited debut in 2015, the awesome, yet very short Asylum.  Since that record the newest member is Randall Reekstin on drums.  The rest of the band staying intact with Joe Provvisiero and Leo Bakman on guitars, John […]
