Bludgeon – Devoted to Lunacy (Review)

Bludgeon - Devoted to LunacyThis is the debut album from UK death metallers Bludgeon.

In some ways this album is a textbook example of what-you-see-is-what-you-get – the album cover just screams brutal death metal ripped from the underground in huge great bloody chunks. In other ways, however, this does Bludgeon a disservice, as this release is surprisingly technical and involved, and the band’s individual personality shines through the gore with an unexpected brightness. Continue reading “Bludgeon – Devoted to Lunacy (Review)”

Abnormality – Mechanisms of Omniscience (Review)

AbnormalityAbnormality are a Death Metal band from the US. This is their second album.

Abnormality’s 2012 début album Contaminating the Hive Mind was a standout slab of unrelenting brutality, really placing them highly in the extreme Metal hierarchy in my mind.
