Five long years have passed since 2017’s Gods of Violence. Are you ready for a new Kreator album after all that time? Of course you are. Containing 46 minutes of new material, Hate Über Alles showcases the band as we love them – passionate, melodic, and full of fiery molten metal heaviness. Continue reading “Kreator – Hate Über Alles (Review)”
Wonderbox Metal gets sent a lot of new music, (which is great), but there’s no way that everything can get covered unfortunately, (which is not so great). This new column hopes to redress this balance, if only slightly, by taking a look at a handful of releases that a record label has recently sent out that might have otherwise slipped through the cracks.
Have you heard of Dying Victims Productions? They deal mostly with traditional heavy metal, and the label is home to a number of great bands and great albums, (Witchseeker are just one such example). The below three releases all see the light of day on January 28th 2022, so I thought it’s a great to catch up with some of the label’s latest output. Continue reading “Label Roundup: Dying Victims Productions – Tension, Tangent, & Vicious Knights (Reviews)”
Oxygen Destroyer play combination of death, black, and thrash metal that’s brutal and deadly. Across 29 minutes of material the band ply their monster-themed trade, and do so with breathless enthusiasm. Continue reading “Oxygen Destroyer – Sinister Monstrosities Spawned by the Unfathomable Ignorance of Humankind (Review)”
Go Ahead and Die treats us to 44 minutes of old-school thrash metal, with some death metal, punk, and grindcore thrown in for good measure. Continue reading “Go Ahead and Die – Go Ahead and Die (Review)”
Cryptosis play an aggressive form of thrash that combines raw fiery hostility with progressive depth. Thrown into this mix are minor elements of symphonic, technical, black, and death metal, all of which merely add flavour to an already tasty thrash-tastic recipe. Think Continue reading “Cryptosis – Bionic Swarm (Review)”
It’s been a while since I’ve indulged in some death/thrash, and Malevolent Demise Incarnation is just the sort of release to get stuck into. These songs are high octane blood pumpers, and across 44 minutes Rapture showcase what they’re made of. Continue reading “Rapture – Malevolent Demise Incarnation (Review)”
Shrapnel play aggressive thrash in the style of Kreator mixed with some Testament and Metallica. I have a low tolerance for thrash these days, but Shrapnel pass the taste-test quite nicely. Continue reading “Shrapnel – Palace for the Insane (Review)”
Touring for the hugely enjoyable Gods of Violence album, this live album catches the band at a UK show in London, and records 73 minutes of thrashtastic tunes for prosperity. Bonus editions of this album Continue reading “Kreator – London Apocalypticon – Live at the Roundhouse (Review)”
This is the third album from Algebra, a thrash metal band from Switzerland.
Having been impressed with 2014’s Feed the Ego, it’s been far too large of a gap between Algebra releases for my liking. Well, there’s almost an hour of material on Pulse?, including a fiery Sepultura cover, so I feel like the band have made up for their absence. Continue reading “Algebra – Pulse? (Review)”
Across a mere 25 minutes Burial Remains tear out Swedish-styled old-school death metal like it never went out of fashion. Hell, as far as I’m concerned, it never did. Continue reading “Burial Remains – Trinity of Deception (Review)”
