The Eating Cave – Ingurgitate (Review)

The Eating Cave - IngurgitateThis is the debut album from US death metallers The Eating Cave.

Taking influence from a mix of bands such as Archspire, Origin, Beneath the Massacre, The Faceless, and Infant Annihilator, The Eating Cave spend 39 minutes terrorising, battering, and demoralising the listener with the sort of punishment that is as well-delivered as it is startlingly brutal.

Azaab – Summoning the Cataclysm (Review)

Azaab - Summoning the CataclysmAzaab are a death metal band from Pakistan and this is their debut album.

Summoning the Catalysm features 38 minutes of professional death metal. It’s brutal and aggressive, and boasts both technical flourishes and progressive enhancements, all delivered in a lean 38 minutes, (and there’s a decent Decapitated cover too). Continue reading “Azaab – Summoning the Cataclysm (Review)”

Sijjeel – Salvation Within Insanity (Review)

Sijjeel - Salvation Within InsanityThis is the debut album from Sijjeel, a death metal band from Saudi Arabia.

Do you like your brutal death metal dark and murderous? Then you’re sure to get on well with the violent carnage contained on Salvation Within Insanity.

Origin – Chaosmos (Review)

Origin - ChaosmosThis is the eighth album from US death metallers Origin.

It seems like Unparalleled Existence only came out a couple of years ago, but it was actually 2017. Time certainly flies. Still, at least Origin have now returned, bringing us the 46-minute beast that is Chaosmos. Continue reading “Origin – Chaosmos (Review)”

Analepsy – Quiescence (Review)

Analepsy - QuiescenceAnalepsy are a slamming brutal death metal band from Portugal and this is their second album.

I have been waiting for this for soooo long. It’s been a long time since I was hugely impressed by 2015’s Dehumanization by Supremacy and 2017’s Atrocities from Beyond, but Analepsy have finally returned to show everyone who’s boss. Back with almost a completely new lineup, (which includes members of Annihilation and Necrovile), Quiescence contains 39 minutes of Analepsy doing what Analepsy do best – crushing skulls with massive slamming death metal. Continue reading “Analepsy – Quiescence (Review)”

Golgothan – Leech (Review)

Golgothan - LeechGolgothan are a death metal band from the US and this is their debut album.

Golgothan offer up 38 minutes of brutal death metal. Worshipping at the altar of modern song-based big-hitters such as Aborted and Cattle DecapitationLeech is a great example of  how to take inspiration from well-known names and produce something that’s well-worth getting stuck into. Continue reading “Golgothan – Leech (Review)”

Ohio Slamboys – Chop x Drill x Kill (Review)

Ohio Slamboys - Chop x Drill x KillThis is the second album from Ohio Slamboys, a brutal death metal band from France.

The first Ohio Slamboys album – Zombie Killing Process – was a fun frolic into zombie-infested territories, and Chop x Drill x Kill carries on this theme. Across 32 minutes the band chop, kill, and drill, (ahem), their way through meaty brutal death metal slam with the enthusiasm of people who really love their grisly work. Continue reading “Ohio Slamboys – Chop x Drill x Kill (Review)”

Dormant Ordeal – The Grand Scheme of Things (Review)

Dormant Ordeal - The Grand Scheme of ThingsThis is the third album from Polish death metallers Dormant Ordeal.

Now here’s something pretty tasty. I haven’t encountered Dormant Ordeal before, but The Grand Scheme of Things is impressive enough to make me wish I had. Across 39 minutes the band absolutely punish the listener with their idiosyncratic and exemplary take on death metal mastery. Continue reading “Dormant Ordeal – The Grand Scheme of Things (Review)”

Pathology – The Everlasting Plague (Review)

Pathology - The Everlasting PlagueThis is the eleventh album from US death metallers Pathology.

Both 2017’s Pathology and 2019’s Reborn to Kill were brutally fun records to listen to. What of The Everlasting Plague?

Unexpectedly lengthy, (relatively speaking), at 41 minutes in Continue reading “Pathology – The Everlasting Plague (Review)”
