Hell Unleashed

There is nothing subtle about EVILE's extremely welcome return to action. And that's just the way we like it. The UK quartet's Fleming Rasmussen-produced debut "Enter The Grave" (2007) swiftly established them as a major force in the ever-so-slightly cynical and label-led thrash metal revival that w...

Petulant religious folk aside, most of us enjoy a bit of flagrant blasphemy woven into the fabric of our heavy music. What we generally don't expect is to find the stench of malevolence and infernal intent emanating from a band with strong roots in the deathcore scene. BONECARVER were previously kno...

United In Chaos

Even the most dedicated brutality fan would struggle to plough through everything that is released under the death metal banner. The modern, well-produced end of the DM scene is particularly guilty of churning out bands that sound identical to one another, but the upside of that scenario is that a b...

With a dedication to death metal that is entirely unmatched in the modern era, Sweden's most prolific writer of skull-shattering riffs has had a particularly busy 2020. Happily, "The Shadow At The World's End" is easily the finest of the nine f...

Mass Failure

They do things properly in Scotland. Brutal death metal has never been so well endowed with mind-blowing bands as it is today, but even by this year's skull-shattering standards of excellence, "Mass Failure" rips incredibly fucking hard indeed. SCORDATURA warned us in advance, of course; both 2013's...

Politics Versus The Erection

Irrespective of where you lurk on the political spectrum, there must surely be moments when the urge to block out any mention of politics or politicians becomes overwhelming. Helpfully, VENOMOUS CONCEPT have spewed up their fourth studio album as the perfect means to drown out the tsunami of bullshi...

Guru Meditation

The problem with micro-subgenres like digital grindcore is that, for most of us at least, there is only so much of the stuff one can consume before your brain gives up and sends you howling back to your SLAYER collection. There has always been much to be said for drinking too much coffee and listeni...

Heavy Rock Radio II – Executing The Classics

There are numerous reasons why established artists resort to the ignoble art of the covers album: contractual obligations and desperation being the most obvious. Neither of those reasons seem relevant to this second volume of hallowed anthems from the always mighty Jorn Lande, though, and that's bec...

Unsought Salvation

Spare a thought for anyone releasing a new album at the end of December. Inevitably lost among the deranged whirlwind of Christmas and almost guaranteed to be forgotten by the New Year, these records are the unthinking lemmings of the music biz calendar. Fortunately, the way that people consume musi...
