Crown, The – Cobra Speed Venom

Back in 1999 Sweden’s, The Crown carved a much loved niche in my heart with their debut, Hell is Here (yes, I know that the band had two previous full-lengths under the Crown of Thorns moniker). Extreme metal was in a little bit of a weird state, with lots of genre transitioning seemingly taking place […]

Slugdge – Esoteric Malacology

Maybe it’s a bit premature, considering I am writing this review in what is still the first quarter of 2018, but for the time being, I am putting money on the U.K.’s Slugdge‘s new album, Esoteric Malacology, to be the album of the year for many a metalhead; or a contender for the title at […]

Grotesquery, The – The Lupine Anathema and other Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre

To say I was pleased as Punch when I saw the new album, The Lupine Anathema and other Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre, from The Grotesquery in the review queue, here at Teeth of the Divine, is more than just an understatement. Considering the fact that the band had seemed to call it […]

Neoceasar – 11:11

Forgive me if you will, for as much as I like to use band comparisons for the ease and convenience of conveyance, I don’t want to be that guy who constantly mentions one band while reviewing another…but I’m gonna be that guy who constantly mentions one band while reviewing another. Though in the case of […]

Faceless Burial – Grotesque Miscreation

“Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Faceless Burial are a power trio of unimaginable death metal might. Theirs is an unremittingly dark and dexterous sound which draws in a variety of death metal traditions: the gooey grind of early ’90s Finland, the spiraling surge of classic Tampa, the bazooka-blown fury of old Brazil, the atonal angularity ushered […]

Boia – Chivalry of Death EP

The question of whether you really need to check out Boia, and their debut EP, Chivalry of Death, is simply this: “How much do you bleed for Altars of Madness?” Now don’t get me wrong, any self-respecting metalhead has at least one copy of the seminal debut from Morbid Angel in their collection, but that […]

River of Souls – The Nihilist EP

I would imagine that the members of River of Souls have been called many things within their life and career, though I highly doubt that the term “slackers” has ever been one of them. Having just released their debut full-length, The Well of Urd, upon listeners just a mere few months ago, the band have […]

Lady Beast – Vicious Breed

What do you get when you cross the most successful and popular NWOBHM band, Iron Maiden, the (slightly) darker thrash of King Diamond and even Iced Earth, the swagger of Motorhead, and the headstrong dominance of Manowar, with ass kicking XX chromosomes of mighty frontwoman power? Lady Beast, you get Lady Beast my friends. Wait… […]

Mortum – Eheieh Chaos

I’ve got to hand it to New Jersey’s Mortum, from the little snippet of material that I had heard from them before I signed up to review their new album, Eheieh Chaos, I wasn’t too impressed. The music wasn’t bad per se but it wasn’t anything new or more than just a little intriguing; yet […]

Spectrum of Delusion – Esoteric Entity

Technical death metal. There’s generally two type of people when regarding the sub-genre. Those that don’t like it, considering it nothing more than a noodly-broodly fretboard wankfest that’s more show than substance, and well, those that do. I happen to fall in the latter category and think that tech-death is some stellar shit. Honestly, I’d […]

Krossfyre – Burning Torches EP

I’m not sure how much, you the readers may be following the issues recently happening in Spain, Barcelona about the Catalan Independence, in particular with some marches, protests and much of the tense situation that is happening.  I won’t go into details, this is a music site, not a political one, so suffice it to […]

Demoniac – Intemperance

What do H. G. Wells, Doctor Who, Emmett Lathrop Brown, Bill S. Preston, Esquire, Ted “Theodore” Logan, and Chile’s Demoniac, and their debut full-length album, Intemperance, all have in common? Time travel of course, you silly gooses. In fact, Intemperance may be the closet thing any of us actually get to achieving time travel here […]

River of Souls – The Well of Urd

I’m not sure what it was that made me choose to cover The Netherlands’ based act, River of Souls, and their debut album, The Well of Urd. Maybe it was divine intervention from the metal gods themselves. Whatever it was that drove me toward the band, I am glad it did, as River of Souls […]

Temple of Void – Lords of Death

Feel the crushing groove…FEEL IT! I think I may have gotten a tad bit obsessed with Detroit, Michigan’s Temple of Void. At the very least, I feel the onset of becoming a huge fan of the group taking hold. Seriously, a mere four weeks is what separates the first time I stumbled across Temple of […]

Skelethal – …Of the Depths

I have no idea when the Old School Swedish Death retro movement really got started. With Bloodbath maybe? I do know that it has been running strong for awhile now, but honestly, I never really cared about the retro movement as long as my favorite original Swedeath stalwarts, Dismember, were still (skinned) alive and kicking. […]

Horrific – Your Worst Nightmare

I’m curious. How many metalheads, when asked the question, “What attracts you to heavy metal music?”, would answer with a simple and sound, “Fun”. Yet in reality, isn’t that the brass tax of it all? If the love we have for metal wasn’t, in the long run, “fun”,  would we indulge in it? Maybe it’s […]

Pathology – Pathology

Chances are, if you’re a “brutal death metal” fan, that you are well familiar with California’s Pathology. Hell, if you’re just a half-assed metal fan you’ve probably heard of the band at the very least. The group has released nine albums, new album included, in eleven years of solid brutal death metal. Some albums a […]

Sacrificial Slaughter – Generation of Terror EP

“Have Mercy”…and I don’t mean “have mercy” like that faux rocker Uncle Jessie’s cheesy catch phrase from that horribly great sit-com I watched as a kid in the late ’80’s. I mean “have mercy”, as in the new Sacrificial Slaughter EP, Generation of Terror , is going  to rip your ears a new asshole (yeah, […]

Iced Earth – Incorruptible

I’ve been an Iced Earth fan for awhile now. Twenty years exactly, at the time of this review, as it was the band’s compilation/re-worked/best of album, Days of Purgatory, that introduced me to their take on thrash, power, and traditional metal. At the time I thought of myself as a latecomer, as the band had […]

Dreaming Dead – Funeral Twilight

Lets be honest. There is simply too much metal out there nowadays for a fan to stay on top of it all. Thirty years ago? No problem. Twenty years ago? Difficult, but still do-able. Today? Fuhgeddaboudit… Even the most devout of metal collectors (which most us are) will find it nigh impossible to stay afloat […]

Holycide – Annihilate….Then Ask!

Holy gargantuan balls of steel, Batman! This is some straight up good shit right here. I  really was not sure what to expect from Holycide and their debut full-length, Annihilate… Then Ask!. Truth be told, I was basically looking for something other than death metal for reviewing purposes  and didn’t anticipate such a blistering and […]

Spectral Descent – Descending the Astral Plane

First things first; hats off to Spectral Descent for being able to pique my interest in such a way that I damn near couldn’t wait to hear their debut album, Descending the Astral Plane. You see friends, like many of you, I love death metal. Love it! Luckily, I was a present and accounted for […]

Committee, The – Memorandum Occultus

Truth be told, the review you are reading almost didn’t come to fruition. Not because I am a lazy procrastinator, (even though I am a lazy procrastinator) but because I could never seem to make it through the first track of The Committee‘s second full-length album, Memorandum Occultus, before I was just bored to tears […]

Epoch – Sacrosanct

If anything could be said about Epoch, it would have to be the fact that the band is a bit of a mystery. Being wholly unfamiliar with the group or its sole album Sacrosanct, (originally a digital only release in 2015; now seeing a physical release this year, via Lavadome Productions) I tried to do […]

Overkill – The Grinding Wheel

Friends, thrashers, metalheads, lend me your ears! OverKill, the most consistent metal band on the entire planet, is back with their 18th (yes, I said 18th ) full-length album, The Grinding Wheel. If you are new to metal and/or are unfamiliar with OverKill, and somehow you have made your way to this review, then stop! […]
