Glacial Domination

Two observations for you. Firstly, Texas is definitely the epicenter of death metal right now. Secondly, FROZEN SOUL are seriously special. Produced by TRIVIUM's Matt Heafy, and brilliantly so, "Glacial Domination" is the kind of authoritative and substantial album that death metal's new breed absol...

Born Into The Twisting Rope

It's always good to see people spending their time wisely. INDUSTRIAL PUKE have plainly spent most of their lives listening to ENTOMBED's "Left Hand Path" and DISCHARGE's "Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing" at excruciating volume, and quite conceivably at the same time. That's not to say that t...

The Old Ways Remain

Admittedly, THE DAMNED have taken a few forms and unex...

The Wretched; The Ruinous

Thank the lords of metalcore for UNEARTH. While other bands that emerged from a thriving US scene 20 years ago eventually succumbed to commercial concerns or faded away through lack of persistence, Boston's finest have stuck to their guns. Only their eighth album in 25 years, "The Wretched; The Ruin...

Cooked up during long, locked down months and polished to what sounds like close to perfection, "Prey" is a debut album that oozes class. We are firmly in symphonic extreme metal territory here, with echoes of all the usual post-DIMMU subjects, but HALIPHRON rarely sound entirely in thrall to other...

Screem Writers Guild

For fans of infernally catchy hard rock performed by mutant gonks from outer space, LORDI have been an increasingly fertile source of delight in recent times.
