Bonecarver – Carnage Funeral (Review)

Bonecarver - Carnage FuneralBonecarver are a Spanish deathcore band and this is their second album.

After the thoroughly brutal Evil from only last year, Bonecarver are back already with Carnage Funeral, but they’re not the same band that we met only recently. This 40-minute record showcases the band as they develop their sound further; Carnage Funeral is Bonecarver’s next evolutionary step. Continue reading “Bonecarver – Carnage Funeral (Review)”

Ingested – Ashes Lie Still (Review)

Ingested - Ashes Lie StillThis is the sixth album from UK death metallers Ingested.

Ingested’s albums are always good for some brutal bloodthirsty fun – check out 2018’s The Level Above Human and 2020’s Where Only Gods May Tread for two prime examples. This new album offers a 44-minute rebirth of sorts, with the band broadening their sound, but without losing what made them so enjoyable in the first place.

A Wake in Providence – Eternity (Review)

A Wake in Providence - EternityThis is the second album from US deathcore band A Wake in Providence.

The promo blurb states that this is for fans of bands like Osiah, Signs of the Swarm, and Aversions Crown, and who am I to disagree with that? Okay, well maybe a little. I’d mention bands like Lorna Shore, Mental Cruelty, and Worm Shepherd too, as A Wake in Providence Continue reading “A Wake in Providence – Eternity (Review)”

Cabal – Magno Interitus (Review)

Cabal - Magno InteritusThis is the third album from Danish blackened deathcore band Cabal.

A new Cabal album is very welcome. 2020’s Drag Me Down was murderously good fun, so it’s great to greet Magno Interitus‘ 36 minutes with big expectations. But have Cabal once again delivered the goods? Continue reading “Cabal – Magno Interitus (Review)”

Lorna Shore – Pain Remains (Review)

Lorna Shore - Pain RemainsThis is the fourth album from US blackened deathcore band Lorna Shore.

Pain Remains offers a well-crafted 61 minutes of modern professional deathcore. Ambitious in scope, but superlative in execution, Pain Remains is epic, brutal, and atmospheric, probably about in equal measure. Continue reading “Lorna Shore – Pain Remains (Review)”

Following on from 2019’s Undying Light, Fallujah once again return, with a new lineup and a new 52 minutes of material.

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.
