Review: “Necrophaze: Antidote” by Wednesday 13

Any self respecting Wednesday 13 fan will tell you that the self proclaimed Duke of Spook has made a habit of releasing re-recordings, covers and b-sides over the course of a career going back as far as 1992 with his various projects. There have been some real highlights like 2008’s “Bloodwork” EP that should have

Review: “Mournfall” by Old Forests

Forged in a furnace deep in the heart of Sussex, England by a three Black Metal fans in 1998, Old Forest recorded a pair of demos before releasing their debut album “Into the Old Forest” in 1999 and little did we know that it would be the start of a 22 year journey following a

Review: “Experiments in Warfare” by Death Chamber

The roots of Death Chamber go back to the summer of August 2018 when with smell of rotting flesh in the air guitarist Tim Reu began to experiment with some riffs that would take him beyond the horizons of his Black Metal band Chaedrist and into the realms of Death Metal. The solo project started

Review: “Dead End Pt. 1” by WarCall

After four well-received albums under their collective belts in 2008’s “Demonarchy“, 2013’s “Blood, Guts and Dirt“, 2015’s “III” and 2017’s “Invaders“, DIY Canadian quartet WarCall have set their signs on unleashing not one but two new EPs in 2021. Each one is said to represent a different side to the bands coin and recorded and mixed

Review: “Self Titled” by Skorb

An anonymous quartet cloaked in Monks robes and shrouded in mystery as it is suggested that even their label, Corrupted Flesh Records, do not know the real names or faces of any of the members of the act, Skorb were formed in 2019 and hail from St. Petersburg in Mother Russia. Inspired by bands like

Review: “LV-426” by Hideous Divinity

Deciding on James Cameron’s “Aliens” as a theme for their latest offering, Italian Technical Death Metal force Hideous Divinity have chosen to concentrate on the story of Rebecca ‘Newt’ Jorden, the 6-year old girl rescued on the alien infested planetoid LV-426 by Ellen Ripley in the film. As the listener, we live the story from her point

Review: “Masters Of Perplexity” by Fragmentum

It has been six years since Belgian Melodic Death Metal trio Fragmentum burst onto the scene, their debut album “Pugnacity” receiving the critical acclaim and fan adoration that afforded them the opportunity to be able to tour the US with Children of Bodom as well as share stages with Soulfy and Annihilator in Europe. Taking

Review: “Cursed Be Thy Kingdom” by Bewitcher

“The goal on this one was to make a classic sounding rock and heavy metal record, but filter it through the Bewitcher lens. It’s more personal and observational in certain spots, but with all the pleasures of flesh, magic, and sin that one could ever expect from Bewitcher. This record is nearly two years in

Review: “Sleeps Society” by While She Sleeps

It seems like it has been being hyped forever all over the interweb but the fifth studio album “Sleeps Society” from Sheffield Metalcore outfit While She Sleeps is finally upon us and after the brilliance of 2017’s “You Are We“, the curve ball of 2019’s “So What?” makes this one something of an intriguing prospect.

Review: “Arsonist” by Havelocke

“A haphazard mix of emo, post hardcore, and all things horror; Havelocke. The misfit cousins to the alternative scene, where black eyeliner meets big harmonies and post-apocalyptic themes. Emo and post-hardcore didn’t die; it grew up and put on it’s finest black clothes, ready to question the reality of the society we live in. Who better
