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. […]

Misery Index- I Disavow EP

Until we are greeted with Misery Index’s sixth bone-crushing album the band gives us a little taste with the I Disavow single. A 2-song single featuring the title track and a nice cover of Nailbomb’s “Wasting Away”. Opening with “I Disavow” Misery Index are firing on all cylinders. Jason Netherton-bass/vocalist, Adam Jarvis-drums, Mark Kloeppel-guitars/vox and […]

Psalm, The – I EP (Reissue)

This sure was a little ditty of a surprise.  Never heard of The Psalm, a death metal act, hailing from Greece.  This ep, I,  was originally released a few years ago and thankfully Repulsive Echo Records have reissued and added some extra tracks.  “A Mass For The Bereaved” starts out with a weird beginning, which […]

Gutted – Bleed For Us To Live/Gutted (Reissues)

Out of print for years, Repulsive Echo’s, Kostas has brought us back both releases from Toledo Ohio’s Gutted.  Gutted were a death metal band who had some hype back in the early-mid 90’s.  These reissues are still highly sought after and probably a repressing is in order, because these reissues are difficult to find and […]

Revel In Flesh – Relics of the Deathkult

  Any one of my death metal brothers and sisters in the scene know by now I feel Germany’s Revel in Flesh have been one of my favorite death metal fans for the last 5-6 years.  Their brand and take on the classic heavy Swedish death metal sound is pulverizing.  With four (4) killer albums […]

Morta Skuld – Surface (Reissue)

Milwaukee Wisconsin’s Morta Skuld released their fourth album, Surface, in 1997 on the now defunct record label System Shock.  The band had been pounding away at their grooving and punishing style of death metal for several years and guitarist/vocalist, Dave Gregor, Jason O’Connell-guitar, Jason Hellman-bass and Kent Truckenbrod showed no signs of letting up on […]

Ataraxy – Where All Hope Fades

Spain’s Ataraxy has had some real nice prior releases. Their 2010 ep, Curse of the Requiem Mass and their debut album Revelations of the Ethereal are pretty crushing death doom albums. After a 6 year break, the band return with their second full-length album-Where All Hope Fades. There are only 6 true songs, as the […]

Abolishing the Ignominious – Vociferous Obsolescence

Whew… talk about a tongue twister of a band and album name!! Vocalist Eston Brown, has a killer voice and his vocals on his former band Gigan’s Multi-Dimensional Fractal-Sorcery and Super Science are outstanding. Rounding out Abolishing the Ignominious is Joseph Lusciano on all the instruments. Russia’s brutal slam gore death metal label Coyote Records […]

Hooded Menace – Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed

Finland’s Hooded Menace have been slogging their brand of doom death metal for over a decade now and continue to hone their craft and get stronger with each release. Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed, their 5th full length is such a monstrous release, I do not know where to begin.  Adding more band members seems to add […]

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 […]

Auðn – Farvegir Fyrndar

Okay, here I am venturing outside my normal realms and diving into more black metal. Auðn hail from Iceland and my bud, Graham, Deepsend Records owner, sent me their s/t debut a few years ago and I was hooked. The band sings in their native language and the best way to describe them is atmospheric […]

Watain – Trident Wolf Eclipse

I will attempt to do Watain’s ardent supporters proud by this review. Understand that I am new to the Watain camp, so forgive me if you disagree with me. Deepsend Records owner and friend, Graham Landers, recommended this new Watain to me and I was hooked. He guided me through their discography and within a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Metallica – Master of Puppets (3cd Deluxe Reissue)

Without question Metallica’s Master of Puppets, in 1986, is one of the all-time greatest thrash metal records ever to be released.  This is the album that platooned them into super stardom. Along with their US tour with Ozzy, Metallica then began to rise to a popularity that many groups only have dreams of.  Last year, Metallica […]

Emblazoned – Catharsis

   Wisconsin’s Emblazoned released their debut album, in 2014, Eucharistiae Sacramentum and it was outstanding.  Even topping their 2013 ep, The Living Magisterium.  They return with their second full-length, Catharsis.  Emblazoned have always had a black metal edge to the death metal sound and the black metal moments definitely are taking center stage with Catharsis.  […]

Morta Skuld – Wounds Deeper Than Time

Milwaukee Wisconsin’s Morta Skuld released a monstrous debut album in 1993, Dying Remains and I listened to it constantly.  Beyond quality death metal, with some thrash metal tendencies, but leaning more towards the brutal side of things, like Demolition Hammer and eventually some Solstice influence.  Well fast forward 24 years later and I get to […]

Celtic Frost – Morbid Tales/To Mega Therion/Into the Pandemonium/and Vanity/Nemesis (Reissues)

All four of these albums were previously remastered in 1999 and now we get reissues of a reissue.  But Tom Warrior breathed new life into the sound with the help from his Triptykon bandmate V.Santura who is an excellent engineer.  Each paragraph will speak more about my experience with Celtic Frost and the added extras.  […]

Voracious Scourge – Our Demise EP

Voracious Scourge’s debut release, …Our Demise is a monstrous ep comprising some of the best members in death metal.  You have Adrie Kloosterwaard from Sinister, doing the vox, Mike Smith, ex-Suffocation drummer, Jason McIntyre and Lance Strickland, from Suture on guitar and bass.  This 5-song ep is so damn killer.””You think you know well played, […]

Aosoth – V: The Inside Scriptures

France’s Aosoth released one of the greatest black metal albums I ever heard in 2013-IV: An Arrow in Heart. It made my best of list and I interviewed them as well.  Nice dudes, creating some dark and brutal music.  There were a few death metal elements on the album and it was just fantastic.  Fast […]

Kreator – Endless Pain/Pleasure to Kill/Terrible Certainty/Extreme Aggression (Reissues)

Germany has always been responsible for some of the best metal bands.  I would say the best countries for overall metal has been: U.S., Germany and England.  For me, Kreator are the best German thrash band and always one of my faves.  Each paragraph will focus on more of the bonus content, remastering and personal […]

Day of Doom – Descent of Humanity

Hailing from where I grew up, Long Island New York’s Day of Doom have been around for a pretty decent time, since 2000.  They have released four albums.  Night of Horror, Slaves to Insanity, The Gates of Hell and their newest one Descent of Humanity.  They also reissued their first 2 albums on The Second […]

Pestilence – Malleus Maleficarum/Consuming Impulse (Reissues)

Give it up for Hammerheart partnering with Patrick Mameli to bring you the first set of Pestilence reissues.  Each paragraph will focus on each of these reissues, my thoughts and the impact each had on the scene.  My second Pestilence reissue review package will be in the new year encompassing Testimony of the Ancients and […]

Through The Discipline – 5 Ronin EP

Reuniting last year after a 10 year hiatus Mike Centrone, vocalist of NYDM band, Dehumanized, said you know what this damn world needs?  I’ll tell you what it needs, it needs the reformation of Through The Discipline.  Originally formed in 1997, the band released some demos, eps and a full-length album in 2004, titled Art […]
