Sarinvomit/Eggs of Gomorrh – Encomium of Depraved Instincts – Split (Review)

Sarin Vomit Eggs of Gomorrh - Encomium of Depraved Instincts - SplitSarinvomit are from Turkey and Eggs of Gomorrh are from Switzerland. Both play variants of black metal, and have teamed up for this split release.

Sarinvomit and Eggs of Gomorrh are both rooted in black metal, only mutated and ugly versions of it. This split lasts a hideous 31 minutes, and all eight tracks are worth devouring hungrily, despite how disgusting they are. Continue reading

Disuse – Machine-Gun Kelly (Review)

Disuse - Machine-Gun KellyDisuse are a grindcore band from the Netherlands and this is their latest EP.

Machine-Gun Kelly gives us less than four minutes of new material and follows on from the 2018 EP The Yeti from Kad-Man-RA, which I characterised as nasty blink-and-you’ll-miss-it grindcore. Continue reading

Starless Domain – ALMA (Review)

Starless Domain - ALMAStarless Domain are a US black metal band and this is their second album.

Rogga Johansson – Entrance to the Otherwhere (Review)

Rogga Johansson - Entrance to the OtherwhereRogga Johansson is a Swedish death metal legend and this is his second solo album.

Rogga Johansson is a man of many bands – listing groups like Paganizer, Down Among the Dead Men, and Echelon only scratches the surface. Not content with his many, many projects, he also has this eponymously named new album. As you would expect, it’s death metal, pure and undiluted. Continue reading

LINGUA IGNOTA – CALIGULA (Review)

LINGUA IGNOTA - CALIGULALINGUA IGNOTA is a one woman experimental artist, and this is her latest album.

Aided by a multitude of guests, (including members of The Body and Full of Hell), this is 66 minutes of beauty and brutality. This is an album that fits in no real category other than a loose experimental one. Peppered with noise, avant-garde, industrial, and post-doom/rock influences, this is music that largely belongs to the artist alone and defies easy categorisation. Continue reading
