Heads for the Dead – Into the Red (Review)

Heads for the Dead - Into the RedThis is the second album from Heads for the Dead, an international death metal band.

2018’s Serpent’s Curse was a great record, so this new one is much-anticipated. Into the Red contains 47 minutes of horror-themed old-school death metal, and the album has been worth anticipating; this is a crushing record that deserves much attention.

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.

Wombbath – Choirs of the Fallen (Review)

Wombbath - Choirs of the FallenWombbath are a Swedish death metal band and this is their fourth album.

SWEDISH DEATH METAL!!! Yeah! Wombbath return to give us another 50 minutes of the good stuff. I have a soft spot for this style that’s undeniable, but Wombbath have proven their worth in the past. Featuring members of bands such as Ashcloud, Henry Kane, Just Before Dawn, Gods Forsaken, Heads for the Dead, Ursinne, Repulsive Vision, and many others, you know that the style is in experienced hands before even pressing play.

UrsinneThis is the debut album of death metal supergroup Ursinne.

Ashcloud – Children of the Chainsaw (Review)

AshcloudThis is the second album from Ashcloud, a death metal band.

If you’re a death metal band and you release an album named Children of the Chainsaw, you’d better be playing old-school Swedish death metal, or it’s just a wasted opportunity. Ashcloud do exactly that, but with a few twists to the formula. This is 45 minutes of disgustingly old-school crusty death metal that will clear the cobwebs away with huge gusts of molten fumes.

In true genre-style; as well as the sickening rhythms we get plenty of Continue reading “Ashcloud – Children of the Chainsaw (Review)”
