Golgothan Remains – Adorned in Ruin (Review)

Golgothan Remains - Adorned in RuinThis is the second album from Australian death metallers Golgothan Remains.

I really enjoyed the ugly malevolence of Golgothan Remains’ 2018 debut Perverse Offerings to the Void. It’s now four years later, and Adorned in Ruin has finally come crashing into our lives. Has it been worth the wait? Continue reading “Golgothan Remains – Adorned in Ruin (Review)”

Barús – Drowned (Review)

Barús - DrownedThis is the debut album from Barús, a progressive death metal band from France.

Although we’ve met the mysterious entity that is Barús before on 2015’s self-titled EP, I’ve only just recently been privileged enough to listen to Drowned, despite it being released in 2018. Well, I’ve missed out, and I can’t help but feel that Drowned would have graced my end of year list for 2018. Continue reading “Barús – Drowned (Review)”

Disentomb – The Decaying Light (Review)

Disentomb - The Decaying LightThis is the third album from Australian brutal death metallers Disentomb.

I’ve seen Disentomb live a few times over the years, and they’ve always impressed with their energetic brutality.

Miserable Failure – Alone: The Phantom Pain – La Seule Vraie Question – Perdition Light/Never Stop the Sadness (Review)

Miserable Failure - AloneThis is the latest release from Miserable Failure, a French grindcore band.

After the tragic death of the band’s vocalist in 2016, I never thought I’d hear from Miserable Failure again. I’m very glad to be wrong, of course. It is a huge shame, however, that I’ve only just found this out; this release actually first saw the light of day in 2017 apparently.
