Witch Vomit – Buried Deep in a Bottomless Grave (Review)

Witch Vomit - Buried Deep in a Bottomless GraveWitch Vomit are a death metal band from the US and this is their second album.

Now this is the stuff. Featuring members of Torture Rack and Dagger Lust, I’ve long been a fan of the foulness that Witch Vomit unleash into the world. 2016’s A Scream from the Tomb Below and 2017’s Poisoned Blood were both underground gems of fetid old-school death metal, and Buried Deep in a Bottomless Grave is no different in this regard.

Victims of Contagion play death metal that mixes brutality with technicality, resulting in songs that aren’t overly technical just for the sake of it. Instead, the technicality is used to forge tracks that place the song at the heart of what the band do. Continue reading

Rogga Johansson – Entrance to the Otherwhere (Review)

Rogga Johansson - Entrance to the OtherwhereRogga Johansson is a Swedish death metal legend and this is his second solo album.

Rogga Johansson is a man of many bands – listing groups like Paganizer, Down Among the Dead Men, and Echelon only scratches the surface.

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
