Spleen & Goad

They may have emerged from a flourishing stoner rock and doom scene back in the mid-'90s, but IRON MONKEY were always more concerned with broken teeth and bloody fists than they were with bong hits. And so it continues, with the second incarnation of a band that have become legendary for the sheer h...

Defectum Omnium

Five years on from "Mourn the Southern Skies", EXHORDER are in no mood for chasing heritage status. An album that built upon the Louisiana band's pioneering legacy, "Mourn…" was joyously received and showered with critical plaudits that finally gifted them a momentum that was never quite secured bac...

After a brief pause for the festive season, death metal has swiftly pulled its shit together for 2024. The third DIPYGUS album is warped and murderous: a drugged-out, cryptid-obsessed onslaught of weirdly evolved, caveman brutality, with songs dedicated to an assortment of mythical mutants, and an o...

Harsh Reality

Everyone should remember the first time that music made them want to smash their own bedroom up. If heavy, angry, ugly music has any purpose whatsoever, it is to get the blood pumping and the spirit soaring, even if the means of achieving that singular rush is to fully embrace the dark and horrible...

Unhealthy Mechanisms

Max Cavalera has had an impressively productive year. Recording and touring have always been like oxygen for the great Brazilian, and more so than now than ever. After touring with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY and releasing widely acclaimed, re-recorded versions of SEPULTURA's "Bestial Devastation" and "Morb...

Bright New Disease

Now this is a meeting of heavy minds. Japan's legendary feedback warriors BORIS have been around for over 30 years now and have amassed an extraordinary and diverse catalogue of music, including collaborations with MERZBOW, SUNN O))) and even THE CULT's Ian Astbury (see 2010's "BXI" EP for details!)...

Rejecting Obliteration

After two solid albums couldn't make their mind up between deathcore savagery and something more progressive, BLINDFOLDED AND LED TO THE WOODS really came into their own on "Nightmare Withdrawals" two years ago. Suddenly, this New Zealand crew were measurably distinct from the legions of traditional...

72 Seasons

Despite being the biggest heavy metal band of them all, METALLICA have a tough time of it. "72 Seasons" arrives a forgivable seven years after the well-received "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", and like each of its post-Black Album predecessors, it is destined to be praised and derided in equal measur...

The Burden Ov Faith

Much to the surprise (or disingenuous delight) of many metal media folk who roundly dismissed the genre 20 years ago, deathcore is firmly in the heavy spotlight right now. Perhaps even more pervasive is the dark, gothic allure of symphonic deathcore, wherein the beatdowns and blastbeats from that or...

Dislike To False Metal

Heavy metal has always had a sense of humor, despite much evidence to the contrary. From BAD NEWS and SPINAL TAP to STEEL PANTHER and the UK's excellent EVIL SCARECROW, metalheads are generally happy to embrace some full-on piss-taking, and so the rise of NANOWAR OF STEEL has a certain inevitability...

Remember… You Must Die!

There was a brief moment when SUICIDE SILENCE appeared to have pissed on their own fireworks. This story has a happy ending, of course: as hinted at loudly on 2020's "Become The Hunter", and confirmed beyond doubt and with white-hot venom here. But back in 2017, that now notorious self-titled album,...
