Centinex – Death in Pieces (Review)

Centinex - Death in PiecesCentinex are a Swedish death metal band and this is their eleventh album.

I always enjoy a bit of Centinex. I’m a sucker for the Swedish strain of death metal at the best of times, and Centinex have pretty much mastered the style in the past. Continue reading

Pyre – Chained to Ossuaries (Review)

Pyre - Chained to OssuariesThis is the second album from Russian death metallers Pyre.

It’s been six years since Human Hecatomb, but now the well-regarded Pyre have returned. This is old-school death metal, unapologetic and unrefined, just as it should be. Taking influence from the Swedish style, (but not exclusively), Chained to Ossuaries gives us 41 minutes of strong material. Fans of Dismember, Asphyx, and Autopsy pay attention. Continue reading

Wombbath – Choirs of the Fallen (Review)

Wombbath - Choirs of the FallenWombbath are a Swedish death metal band and this is their fourth album.

SWEDISH DEATH METAL!!! Yeah! Wombbath return to give us another 50 minutes of the good stuff. I have a soft spot for this style that’s undeniable, but Wombbath have proven their worth in the past. Featuring members of bands such as Ashcloud, Henry Kane, Just Before Dawn, Gods Forsaken, Heads for the Dead, Ursinne, Repulsive Vision, and many others, you know that the style is in experienced hands before even pressing play.

Macabre Demise – Awakening (Review)

Macabre Demise - AwakeningMacabre Demise is a one-man death metal band from Germany. This is the project’s third album.

Now here’s a band that always seems to hit the spot for me. Both 2015’s Homicidal Parasites and 2017’s Apocalypse demonstrated in no uncertain terms how effective Macabre Demise’s music could be, and now we’re treated to a third full-length. Continue reading

Paganizer – The Tower of the Morbid (Review)

Paganizer - The Tower of the MorbidPaganizer are a Swedish death metal band and this is their eleventh album.

Paganizer are a very well-respected band with an imposing body of work, (we’ve covered On the Outskirts of Hades and Land of Weeping Souls in the past). Brought to us by the legendary Rogga Johansson, (Echelon, Megascavenger, The Grotesquery, Those Who Bring the Torture, Just Before Dawn, Ursinne, and many more!), The Tower of the Morbid is 38 minutes of Grade A Swedish death metal ready to destroy. 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
