Visceral Disgorge – Slithering Evisceration (Review)

Visceral Disgorge - Slithering EviscerationThis is the second album from US death metallers Visceral Disgorge.

Here we have around 30 minutes of brutal death metal. It’s largely inspired by late 90s/early 00s classic death metal, although this is given a modern makeover and also incorporates some slam elements. Overall, the word for this album is brutal. Brutal Brutal Brutal. 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

Vulvodynia – Mob Justice (Review)

Vulvodynia - Mob JusticeThis is the third album from Vulvodynia, a death metal band from South Africa.

If you haven’t encountered Vulvodynia before, they play brutal slamming death metal, and do it extremely well. Along with a handful of others they’re pretty much at the top of the pile when it comes to this sort of thing. Continue reading

Ohio Slamboys - Zombie Killing ProcessThis is the debut album from Ohio Slamboys, a brutal death metal band from France.

Now here’s an album that does exactly what it says on the tin. Slamming death metal with a zombie fixation? Why the Hell not! It would be so easy to play this kind of thing badly and end up a generic mess of gore and entrails, but do you know what? This album is just a big old ball of bloody fun. Continue reading
