Apes – Lullabies for Eternal Sleep (Review)

Apes - Lullabies for Eternal SleepApes are a grindcore/hardcore band from Canada and this is their latest EP.

I really liked 2017’s Lightless, and I can’t quite believe it’s been so long since it came out. Lullabies for Eternal Sleep is well-received by yours truly, and I hope there’s even more where this came from, lurking in some underground bunker somewhere, ready to explode into the world.

Lock Up – The Dregs of Hades (Review)

Lock Up - The Dregs of HadesLock Up are an international grindcore band and this is their fifth album.

Across 38 minutes we get Continue reading “Lock Up – The Dregs of Hades (Review)”

Full of Hell – Garden of Burning Apparitions (Review)

Full of Hell - Garden of Burning ApparitionsThis is the fifth album from US grindcore band Full of Hell.

Full of Hell have always impressed. Both 2017’s Trumpeting Ecstasy and 2019’s Weeping Choir did exactly that, and now they have returned with 21 minutes of new material. So, what dark delights does Garden of Burning Apparitions bring us? Continue reading “Full of Hell – Garden of Burning Apparitions (Review)”

Razoreater – Purgatory (Review)

Razoreater - PurgatoryThis is the latest EP from UK grindcore band Razoreater.

I like grind a lot, but there has been a distinct lack of it in 2021. At least, nothing that’s really crossed my path at any rate. In fact, I haven’t reviewed a single grindcore release this year, which is a shocking state of affairs. Time Continue reading “Razoreater – Purgatory (Review)”

To Dust – Nightmare Cycles (Review)

To Dust - Nightmare CyclesThis is the latest EP from To Dust, a deathgrind band from the US.

It’s been four long year’s since To Dust’s debut split with Bent Sea, so Nightmare Cycles is one I’ve been anticipating. With only an 11-minute duration in some ways it’s merely a taster to get the appetite whetted, but hopefully we won’t have to wait another 4 years for more material from the band. Continue reading “To Dust – Nightmare Cycles (Review)”

Bleeding Out – Lifelong Death Fantasy (Review)

Bleeding Out - Lifelong Death FantasyBleeding Out are a Canadian deathgrind band and this is their debut album.

I like a bit of deathgrind, as it tends to be a melting pot of extremity that can sometimes have very engaging results, as it does with Lifelong Death Fantasy. Combining vicious grindcore with violent hardcore Continue reading “Bleeding Out – Lifelong Death Fantasy (Review)”

Sulaco – The Privilege (Review)

Sulaco - The PrivilegeThis is the latest EP from Sulaco, a grindcore band from the US.

Considering the band’s traditional extreme length between releases, we’re quite privileged, (ahem), to have The Privilege so soon after The Prize. Continue reading “Sulaco – The Privilege (Review)”

Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Review)

Henry Kane - Age of the IdiotHenry Kane is a one-man deathgrind/crust band from Sweden, and this is his second album.

I do enjoy Henry Kane’s work. If you haven’t already, make sure you check out Den Förstörda Människans Rike and the split with Prolefeed. Brought to us by the man-of-a-million-bands Jonny Pettersson, (Ashcloud, Gods Forsaken, Heads for the Dead, Just Before Dawn, Ursinne, Wombbath, and many others), Age of the Idiot is a brutally sublime piece of extremity.
