Obsolete – Animate/Isolate

From Minnesota comes Obsolete, a technical death thrash project of Lucas Scott (Sunless, Ex-Australis) and Patrick Ruhland (Ex Australis, Grand Demise of Civilization, Ambassador Gun). Opening with “Still” Scott and Ruhland paint a unique atmosphere with the combination of frenzied riffs reminiscent to Anata or Psycroptic.  The material is quite tight and punchy, and I […]


WARNING!!!*** This review is being presented to you in extremely late fashion, mainly due to the world right now being crazy and my sorry ass being lazy…In fact, you may have already heard and formed opinions on this four-way split, yet I encourage you to read on as your opinions are probably wrong, seeing that […]

Cemetery Filth – Dominion

When one thinks of the phrase Cemetery Filth, what picture forms? For me, I think of that Linnea Quigley graveyard scene in “Return of the Living Dead.” If you’ve seen it, you know the one. For others, I’m sure it’s quite different. When it comes to music, you’re probably thinking of some grimy, slimy, disgusting […]

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 […]

Aggravator – Aggravator EP

Admittedly, I was zero percent familiar with Aggravator and any of their previous output before their new self-titled EP. Though after spending some quality time with said EP, thanks to Unspeakable Axe Records, who have just recently re-released Aggravator after being independently released earlier this year, I will be hunting down their earlier efforts and […]

Nucleus – Entity

Chicagoan four-piece,  Nucleus, have returned with their sophomore LP, Entity, and while I haven’t necessarily been on pins and needles awaiting new material these past three years since their debut full-length, Sentient, I have been looking forward to seeing where these cosmic laced death dealers would take their brand of brutality with future releases. Sentient […]

Morgeangrau – Blood Oracle

I don’t really know what it is about Austin, Texas’ Morgengrau and their sophomore album, Blood Oracle, but something just doesn’t quite resonate with me. All the components for a kick-ass listen are there and the performances are all quite solid to say the least and honestly, while the album is spinning I seem to […]

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 […]

Nucleus – Sentient

Nucleus is an interesting band. Therefore you could easily wager that Sentient, the debut album from this Chicago quartet, is guaranteed to be an interesting listen, and you wouldn’t be wrong. Though what I deem to be the most interesting thing about Nucleus, is the fact that they play old school death metal, but they […]

Cemetery Filth/Ectovoid/Sabbatory/ Trenchrot – 4 Doors to Death

Ahh, the death metal explosion of the late ’80’s and early ’90’s…if you were there to experience any of it, then you know it was a magical time for metal music. A time when a new guard was coming up and pushing the old guard aside, whether the old liked/wanted it or not. It was […]

Ripper – Experiments of Existence

Imagine if you will, a dimension of time locked metal. Where mixtures and combinations of influence from some of the genre’s most elite come together in a controlled cacophony of extreme, old school, aural majesticness. Have you just crossed over into a heavy metal Twilight Zone? Hell no friends! You’ve just stumbled upon another terrific […]

Putrisect/Scorched – Final State of Existence

 Technically, this review is about the Putrisect/Scorched split, Final State of Existence, though personally, I like to refer to it as “the review that almost wasn’t, part 1”. To make a long story short, my laptop decided to shit out on me, barring me from any access to its treasures, i.e. four reviews that were awaiting […]

Hemotoxin – Biological Enslavement

Holy shit! I’m not sure what I was really expecting from Hemotoxin, being I had never heard them before, and I was going into their sophomore album, Biological Enslavement, completely blind (deaf?) to what they were about; but I’ll be damned if Hemotoxin have not only crafted a righteously, kick-ass album in Biological Enslavement, but […]


The fine folks at Clawhammer PR and the Fine Dude at Unspeakable Axe Records are in a giving mood. They have decided that one lucky Teethofthedivine reader is going to get a veritable swag bag of Unspeakable Axe goodies including 3 CDs, 1 Cassette, 1 vinyl record AND a damn T- shirt to boot. How Awesome is that?

Manic Scum – Acidic Remains EP

As if you really needed another reason to check out Dark Descent’s sub-label, Unspeakable Axe, here comes Kingsport, Tennessee’s Manic Scum, with their banger of an EP, Acidic Remains, showcasing an  authentic take on late `80’s/early `90’s old-school death metal. From what I can tell, Acidic Remains was originally self-released back in 2014 in a […]

Insanity – Visions of Apocalypse

I’m not familiar with San Francisco’s Insanity. They were apparently one of the early legendary and influential US death/thrash bands in the mid  to late 80s, but didn’t release an album until 1994’s Death After Death. So they missed the death metal explosion and peak of the early 90s, which I imagine why it was lost in […]

Sadistic Ritual – Edge of the Knife EP

  I have to be honest here, I had never heard Sadistic Ritual, and the only reason I gave them a listen was because the band’s newest EP, Edge of the Knife, is on Unspeakable Axe Records and I absolutely dug the shit out Trenchrot’s Necronomic Warfare album, released last year on Unspeakable Axe. Regardless […]

Black Tower – The Secret Fire

Black Tower is a Canadian trio that play a form of punk/thrash/power/heavy/black metal that’s a perfect fit for Unspeakable Axe Records, and might actually be their best release yet. And while that mish-mash of styles might overwhelm some, it’s going to appeal to a lot of folks, as it’s done with an awesome retro but fun […]

Sabbatory – Endless Asphyxiating Gloom

Continuing the old timey, dusty death metal vibe of the label’s previous releases by Trenchrot and Omnivore, Canada’s Sabbatory are here to deliver some no nonsense old school death/thrash metal. And like this years earlier release from Morfin, the primary influence is an easy one to hear: (very)early Death. Sure, there is lots of other old […]

Trenchrot – Necronomic Warfare

Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, Trenchrot’s debut for Dark Descent Records imprint Unspeakable Axe, is an old school death/thrash record that culls from all the old school acts of the late 80s and early 90s from both the US and Europe. Like the recent release from Roarback, it’s a raucous, simple, fun, skeletal affair that makes no […]

Besieged – Victims Beyond All Help

Man, I am loving this record! Other than Mortal Infinity’s District Destruction, not much of this thrash revival has grabbed my attention, so the likes of Revocation, Havoc, Toxic Holocaust and such hasn’t really floated my boat , but here comes Canada’s Besieged to kick me in the nuts and remind me why I loved so many metal […]
