Desecrate the Faith – III (Review)

Desecrate the Faith - IIIThis is the third album from US death metallers Desecrate the Faith.

Continue reading “Desecrate the Faith – III (Review)”

I really enjoyed 2018’s The Outer Ones, (as well as its predecessor Great Is Our Sin), so have been looking forward to this one.

Now here’s one I’ve really been looking forward to. 2020’s Descent to Madness was seriously good, and I’ve only grown to love it even more over time.

The music combines all of the above elements into a roaringly good collection of tracks. Continue reading “Tombstoner – Victims of Vile Torture (Review)”
