Review: “Collusion” by Martyr Defiled (10th Anniversary)

26th September 2010 saw Lincoln Death Metallers Martyr Defiled follow up their debut album “Ecophaghy” with their sophomore effort “Collision“. Having called time on the band in 2018 after 5 albums together and with former members appearing in Magna Carta and Viscera since, we raised our eyebrows at appearances at Fury Fest and Tech-Fest were

Review: “Devotion to Infinity” by Vesuvian

Is it possible to have a “Brutal Power Metal” band? And what would that even sound like? Well the answer is Vesuvian. Hailing from Seattle Washington and formed in 2015 and releasing their debut EP “Lahar” in 2017, sharing stages with everyone from Exodus to Rings of Saturn and Nekrogoblikon to Stitched Up Heart. During

Review: “Tales Of The White Eye” by Limos

Escaping the woods of Kainuu, Finland in 2017, vocalist Eirik Manne, lead guitarist Eppu Herala, rhythm guitarist Eetu Herala, bassist Tuomas Suokko and drummer Teemu Ohtonen formed Limos to create Melodic Death Metal sounds. As those bleak forests were left behind, the band took with them the elements that defines their music and made it

Review: “Cannibal” by Bury Tomorrow

Our first introduction to South Coast Metalcore heroes Bury Tomorrow came with 2014’s sophomore album “Runes” and more specifically single “Man On Fire“. Adverts for the “Runes” tour were splashed all over the back of Metal Hammer Magazine and the first bite as they say was with the eye. They looked the part and the

Review: “Space/Time Carnivorium” by BOFO KWO

Finnish Symphonic Black Metallers BOFO KWO formed in 2014 and follows the adventures of three cannibals through their journey, sweeping across the planet. The bands debut full length marks the trio’s return to space through time. As with a lot of Black Metal, each member of the band has been given a second name and

Review: “Imprisoned” by Fathom

Cincinnati, Ohio Blackened Deathcore Merchants Fathom caught our attention in April with their debut single “Dread“, a bleak and DJent heavy Deathcore track that pulls no punches and just three months later, their debut EP “Imprisoned” has landed on our doormat. Vocalist Kyle Greene, guitarists Brandon Wallace and Austin Wiesman alongside drummer Bryant Sullivan have

Review: “Astral” by Lost Conduit

13 different Deathcore and Death Metal vocalists make their presence felt with appearances across the 10 tracks that make up “Astral” by Lost Conduit. Just let that sink in for a moment. The project is the brain child of multi instrumentalist Drew Klugger and vocalist Justin Haskin of Desolist, that started with a dream of

Review: “Ceremony” by Ruina

February saw the debut EP from Bedfordshire Metallic Hardcore act Ruina, a project masterminded by Harvey Lake, whom some may know as the bassist in Oxford Hardcore Punks MSRY but is in fact a Multi instrumentalist in his own right. That being said while the songs on “Nemesis” were written and recorded by Lake, Ruina are

Review: “Hindsight” by Emmure

After the resounding success of the Emmure combination of vocalist Frankie Palmeri with Glass Cloud trio Phil Lockett, Joshua Travis and Josh Miller that was 2017’s “Take A Look At Yourself” there was bound to be some fall out, if only because controversy seems to follow Palmeri around like a black cloud. So bassist Phil

Review: “Push The Button” by Dead Tree Seeds

Like so many, Dead Tree Seeds is a band formed from the ashes of a previous project. When Triakanthos split back in 2009, drummer Alexandre Prudent formed this new outfit and after a few line up changes 2013 saw their debut “Seeds Of Thrash” land a square punch to the jaw of the detractors. Over
