Antropofago – Æra Dementiæ

So this a the French death metal band with a very similar name to the long running Italian death metal, Antropofagus band huh? Well, Ok, but the results are the same; damn solid tech/brutal death metal, although these guys are not quite as brutal and have a little more quirk and experimentation to them. I […]

Putrid Offal – Mature Necropsy

France’s Putrid Offal were one of France’s early death metal/grind bands with a number of obscure splits and demos between 1991 and 1994, but it’s taken them until 2015 to release a full length album, which essentially re-records most of the material from the bands 90s discography and adds a couple of covers for good measure. […]

Dehuman – Graveyard of Eden

Based on the artwork and logo, I was fully expecting either unadulterated,, guttural Comatose/Unique Leader styled assaulted of tech death or a burly typically Belgian chug fest (Dehuman hails from Brussels), I braced for the impending assault. However, I was graced with a modern style of death metal that mixed a little of everything from Floridian death […]

Sidious – Revealed in Profane Splendour

The debut  2013 EP from this side project of UK doomsters, Eye of Solitude, was one of my favorite EPs of 2013 and I have been excited for a full length ever since it was announced and I have followed and lapped up every teaser of trailer since. And it was worth the wait as ‘Profane […]

Deep In Hate – Chronicles of Oblivion

Chronicles of Oblivion is the third full-length offering from France’s Deep in Hate, newly signed to Kaotoxin. A progression from the band’s initial sound, Chronicles of Oblivion sees the band playing a somewhat technical style of deathcore in the vein of Thy Art is Murder injected with a lethal strain of Decapitated-influenced modern death metal. […]

Eye of Solitude – Canto III

Eye of Solitude is a funeral doom/death metal band from the UK continuing the style that the country forged many years ago with the likes of My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost and Anathema. Canto III is (obviously) their third release, and it really sees the band peak and carry the mantle from their county mates […]

Nephren Ka – The Fall of Omnius

Even though the band’s moniker may lure in casual Nile fans, France’s Nephren Ka is actually centered around Frank Hebert (Dune author) themes, despite the fact their style of modern, clinical, technical death metal, still is actually a bit Nile sounding, just without all of the Egyptian instrumentation and sand in your crack. Unfortunately, the […]

SidiouS – Ascension to the Throne Ov Self

Sidious is the side project from some of the members of UK doom act Eye of Solitude, and while I generally don’t dig EPs (musical cock teasers), Ascension to the Throne Ov Self is a fucking killer little 4-song release, and I very much look forward to a full-length. Sidious is a complete 180 from […]

Years of Tyrants – Leading the Blind

So here is a 9 song, 23 minute EP or short LP from France’s Years of Tyrants, and one thing is incredibly clear, these guys really like Beneath the Massacre. So much so, that when a track started playing, I had a hard time telling who they were seeing as I still have Beneath the […]
