Here we have some scorching melodic death metal, full of blisteringly hot leads and molten solos. In many ways the guitar is the real star of this show, and across 50 minutes of bright, energetic material, it shines brightly. Continue reading “Coiled Around Thy Spine – Shades (Review)”
Butcher ABC play a gruesome mix of death metal and grindcore, making for 39 ugly, sickening minutes of virulent gore metal. Continue reading “Butcher ABC – North of Hell (Review)”
Here we have 35 minutes of death metal that’s influenced by the UK old-school; mainly death metal, but with some doom and grindcore elements too. Continue reading “Nihil Eyes – Black Path (Review)”
Here we have 8 minutes of brutal deathgrind, and what’s not to like? It’s well-delivered, and utterly uncompromising. Continue reading “Gut Drill – Shit for Brains (Review)”
Here we have 29 minutes of hardcore mixed with elements of metal, grindcore, death metal, and crust. About a third of the running time is taken up by the last track, leaving most of the other songs as Continue reading “Hell to Pay – Bliss (Review)”

This EP is 15 minutes of classic, 90s-styled Continue reading “Killing Addiction – Shores of Oblivion (Review)”
This is a progressive mixture of death and thrash metal that’s not short on confidence or character. Or, for that matter, a rather insane delivery style.
The songs have a decent mixture of aggressive thrash metal, (with a kind of German, Destruction/Kreator feel), and melodic death metal, (Carcass/Arsis), mixed in with more technical and progressive tendencies that see the band producing Continue reading “Archetype – Mission (Review)”
