Regurgitation – Tales of Necrophilia (Reissue)

To this day I still own and play Ohio’s Regurgitation’s demo Conceived Through Vomit from 1996.  Brutally heavy and vicious.  One of the band members gave to me when I was fronting Internal Bleeding and we played in Ohio so many damn times-that’s why the people and scene are so near and dear to me.  […]

Verthebral – Abysmal Decay

I was unaware Paraguay had such an excellent death metal act, in the name of this 5-piece named Verthebral.  I will admit to getting a bit burnt out recently to the oversaturation in the death metal scene of bands trying to out brutal one another.  While I understand the competitive nature of that often the […]

Yoth Iria – Under His Sway EP

I consider Kostas Vaxevanos, owner of Repulsive Echo Records, out of Greece, a friend.  He has been supportive of me and I of him.  I love his label and we’ve had a many discussions over the years.  When he makes music recommendations I listen.  He recently informed me about a band he was planning on […]

Humiliation – Parallel Chains of Command

Malaysia’s Humiliation return with their 10th long player and singer, Bear Bee recently informed me what a special recording this was for them.  Being around a decade now and releasing an album each year they wanted to make Parallel Chains of Command extra special.  Humiliation has never had a title track for any of their […]

Embalmer – Emanations from the Crypt (Reissue)

Ohio’s Embalmer continues to be one of my top bands in all of death metal and with them recording their new album, for a 2020 release, I felt it befitting to review their 2016 release,  Emanations from the Crypt which recently was spit-shined, polished and vomited out with not only a remastering of the sound […]

Viogression – Perception Blur

Viogression started in the midwest, Wisconsin, in the late 80’s, with a bunch of demos before their great 1991 debut album, Expound and Exhort.  The band has a very early death/thrash sound, which is to be expected given the time when the band started.  Enter Mike Juliano, owner of HPGD Productions, an excellent label, to […]

Porta Nigra – Schöpfungswut

Ok folks so this year of 2020 you will see some new and expansive reviews from yours truly.  I do not claim to be a Black Metal expert by any stretch of the imagination, however that’s not to say I do not like Black Metal.  My origins with Black Metal are rooted in more of […]

Annihilator – Ballistic, Sadistic

So Jeff Waters is still slinging the crap out of his guitar?  I had no idea.  Canada’s speed metal veterans return with their 17th, yes you read that correctly, 17th full length album, Ballistic, Sadistic.  Of course you had the classic Alice in Hell album in 1989 and really after that I kind of lost […]

Ian Blurton Future Now – Signals Through the Flames

Holy crap did this come out of left field or what?  Released last year, this promo was just sent to me by the label recently and literally I had to get a review out.  Never heard of this dude, this release and or band and Ian has been in the metal industry for over 3 […]

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 […]
