Human Cull – To Weep for Unconquered Worlds (Review)

Human Cull - To Weep for Unconquered WorldsThis is the third album from UK grindcore band Human Cull.

Somehow I missed this when it came out in January, so the fact that it’s now had a vinyl release seems the perfect opportunity to see what Human Cull’s third album has to offer. If you’re unfamiliar with the band, make sure you check out 2014’s Stillborn Nation and 2018’s Revenant for some great grinding fun.

Antigama – Whiteout (Review)

Antigama - WhiteoutThis is the eighth album from Polish grindcore band Antigama.

I always enjoy hearing Antigama, as no matter what they’re doing you know you’re going to at least get a good base level of quality (see MeteorThe Insolent, and Depressant as good examples). Continue reading “Antigama – Whiteout (Review)”

To Dust – Nightmare Cycles (Review)

To Dust - Nightmare CyclesThis is the latest EP from To Dust, a deathgrind band from the US.

It’s been four long year’s since To Dust’s debut split with Bent Sea, so Nightmare Cycles is one I’ve been anticipating. With only an 11-minute duration in some ways it’s merely a taster to get the appetite whetted, but hopefully we won’t have to wait another 4 years for more material from the band.

Axis of Despair – Contempt for Man (Review)

Axis of DespairAxis of Despair are a Swedish grindcore band and this is their debut album.

Contempt for Man is the follow up to 2016’s Mankind Crawls, which was ferociously enjoyable and showed much promise for the band’s future endeavours. Well, they’ve now made good on that promise with a beefy 20 tracks of serrated grindcore; 33 minutes of new material. Continue reading “Axis of Despair – Contempt for Man (Review)”

Axis of Despair – Mankind Crawls (Review)

Axis of DespairAxis of Despair are a Swedish grindcore band. This is their latest EP.

Okay, so I don’t normally do this, but as an introductory description of Mankind Crawls I’m just going to directly lift the promo blurb –

“Axis of Despair features former and present members of such bands as Nasum, Coldworker, Infanticide, Volturyon, Livet som Insats, Nervgift and Overtorture. To be exact: Continue reading “Axis of Despair – Mankind Crawls (Review)”

Henry Kane – Den Förstörda Människans Rike (Review)

Henry KaneHenry Kane is a one-man deathgrind/death metal/crust project from Sweden.

This is quite hard to classify, but essentially Den Förstörda Människans Rike is a festering, ugly mix of Swedish death metal, hardcore/crust and Swedish grind.

This is deathgrind of the highest, yet filthiest variety. Think of a mutant mix of Dismember, Nails, Anaal Nathrakh, Nasum and Martyrdöd. Continue reading “Henry Kane – Den Förstörda Människans Rike (Review)”
