Review: “Children Of The Cunt” by Vast Slug

When your manifesto is “Blast Beats are the best, get high all the time” and you specialise in fast and aggressive Grindcore (wait… isn’t all Grindcore fast and aggressive?!) then which bands are you going to pick for your covers EP? In the cast of Norwich quartet Vast Slug, famed for such sonic abrasions as

Review: “Collide” by Suffering Quota

Known for their signature blend of Grindcore, Death Metal, Crust and Hardcore, dosed in various quantities, four years after a three way split with Psychoneurosis and Herida Profunda and six after their last album  “Life In Disgust”, Dutch quartet Suffering Quota were back in the studio. Recorded live at Soundlodge Studio Rhauderfehn, Germany by Jörg Uken (Warpath, Anvil,

Review: “Depart From So Much Evil” by Gravehuffer

What’s in a name? Usually we’d say “ask the band” but in the case of Gravehuffer, we can translate as if a foreign language. A grave is a place where the dead are buried. A huffer is a drug addict who gets a high by inhaling or sniffing intoxicating fumes like glue or aerosols. So

Review: “Having Fun At Gunpoint” by Good Cop

“I know what you’re thinking. ‘Did he fire six shots or only five’? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I kind of lost track myself. But being that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask

NEWS: Raging Speedhorn ride a new wave of shows!

The solo project of multi-instrumentalist Evangelos Vasilakos (guitars,

Review: “Process of Extinction” by Bloodbeat

Berlin Germany based Thrash infused Death Metal quartet Bloodbeat steamrollered their way into our path with their 2016 offering “Murderous Art“, an album rich in 90’s Death Metal nostalgia as well as its own character. A plethora of recognizable riffs give their debut an instant appeal with their audible influences in the likes of Napalm

Riff Police! Pull Over! #158: Napalm Death Vs Morbid Angel!

In an alternate Universe, when the SWAT team arrived at Nakatomi Plaza they were forced into retreat by a Corpse paint wearing Giant Troll, dressed in black with spiked wrist guards who was blasting Behemoth from a ghetto blaster. His black toothed grin and poisonous breath enough to repel bullets. But that’s a whole other

The Black Map #143: Utilitarian from Sheffield!

Sheffield Shredders Utilitarian weren’t the only ones to have a spleen to vent in 2020 but they certainly put their rage to good use with not one but two records released in the year of the Great Plague. The first, entitled “Fight War, Not Wars. Destroy Power Not People” saw the trio of Jon Crowder

Review: “Formations of a World Below” by This Is Endless

London Death Metal quintet This Is Endless are made up of members of Ted Maul, Dripback, Dead Beyond Buried and Onlsaught.
