Cryptosis – Bionic Swarm (Review)

Cryptosis - Bionic SwarmCryptosis are a thrash metal band from the Netherlands and this is their debut album.

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)”

Rapture – Malevolent Demise Incarnation (Review)

Rapture - Malevolent Demise IncarnationRapture are a Greek death/thrash metal band and this is their third album.

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 – Palace for the Insane (Review)

Shrapnel - Palace for the InsaneThis is the third album from UK thrash metallers Shrapnel.

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)”

Algebra – Pulse? (Review)

Algebra - Pulse

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)”

Burial Remains – Trinity of Deception (Review)

Burial Remains - Trinity of DeathBurial Remains are a death metal band from Germany/the Netherlands, and this is their debut album.

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)”

Undead Prophecies – Sempiternal Void (Review)

Undead Prophecies - Sempiternal VoidThis is the second album from death metal band Undead Prophecies.

This is death metal rooted in the old-school. It’s played with obvious reverence for what came before it, and has clearly injected itself with a potent cocktail of stimulants to hit with as much force as it can. Continue reading “Undead Prophecies – Sempiternal Void (Review)”

Jungle Rot – Jungle Rot (Review)

Jungle RotThis is the tenth album from US death metal veterans Jungle Rot.

Although Jungle Rot aren’t a band I’m intimately familiar with, I do know, (and enjoy), some of their previous work, so it’s with great interest that I listen to this self-titled album as it’s a bit different from what I’ve heard from the band before.
