Coffin Rot – A Monument to the Dead (Review)

Coffin Rot - A Monument to the DeadThis is the debut album from US death metallers Coffin Rot.

Coffin Rot’s self-titled demo from last year made an impression, so how could I pass up on the band’s first full-length? All four tracks from that demo have made it to A Monument for the Dead, with the 32-minute running time rounded out by a further four new tracks. Continue reading

Entrails – Rise of the Reaper (Review)

Entrails - Rise of the ReaperThis is the sixth album from Entrails, a Swedish death metal band.

Entrails are a reliable death metal juggernaut. With both Obliteration and World Inferno the band produced highly enjoyable exemplars of the classic Swedish death metal style, and now with Rise of the Reaper they’re back once again with another 47 minutes of buzzsaw worship. Continue reading

Gatecreeper – Deserted (Review)

Gatecreeper - DesertedThis is the second album from Gatecreeper, a death metal band from the US.

2016’s Sonoran Depravation and the band’s split release with Iron Reagan in 2018 were both extremely enjoyable, revealing a talent for old-school death metal. Deserted cements this and pushes further, providing 40 minutes of punishing and engrossing tunes. Continue reading

Come Back from the Dead – The Rise of the Blind Ones (Review)

Come Back from the Dead - The Rise of the Blind OnesCome Back from the Dead are a Spanish death metal band and this is their second album.

My introduction to Come Back from the Dead was on 2017’s Caro Data Vermibus. This was a very pleasing little EP, so it’s good to now see the band return with a new album – 32 minutes of rotten material to sink your fangs into. Continue reading

Omophagia – 646965 (Review)

Omophagia - 646965Omophagia are a death metal band from Switzerland and this is their third album.

2016’s In the Name of Chaos was solid, muscular death metal, the type that took influence from classic death metal and then gave it a modern slant. 646965 can be roughly described the same way, but with the modern side of the equation ramped up some. Continue reading
