Review: Distillator “Summoning the Malicious” [Empire Records]

Reviews
Raging out from the Netherlands comes the thrash act Distillator, a speed-focused project that took formation back in 2013. They’ve dropped two full-lengths and a split since then, ...

Review: Grave Dust “The Pale Hand” [Children of the Abyss / Crypt of the Wizard]

Reviews
Grave Dust came across my radar when seeing a post by the frontman of their fellow death metallers Coffin Rot. Hailing from Portland as well, they create an ...

Review: WARBRINGER “Weapons of Tomorrow” [Napalm Records]

Reviews
I need to give this review a bit of a preface. Warbringer has never really been a thrash act that I jumped at. I’ve always found their brand ...

Review: SÖLICITÖR “Spectral Devastation” [Gates Of Hell Records]

Reviews
Speed metal is a pretty cut-and-dry genre. Fast riffs, fast picking, fast energy, right? So when something comes along and removes itself from the norm by adding its ...

Review: Graveyard Ghoul “The Dissolution of Flesh” [Lycanthropic Chants / Fucking Kill Records]

Reviews
Coming from the rotting tombs under Westerstede, Germany rises another death metal project that sucked me in upon the first listen of their latest EP titled The Dissolution ...

Review: Acolytes of Moros “The Wellspring” [Nine Records]

Reviews
A little warning in advance, I would go ahead and mark this under the “give it time to grow on you” category. Acolytes Of Moros are a Swedish ...

Review: Traveler “Termination Shock” [Gates of Hell Records]

Reviews
What a fool I am for sleeping on Traveler last year. Their debut album is pretty magnificent, but it would have made the newest effort even more fun, ...

Review: Hellish Grave “Hell No Longer Waits” [Helldprod Rec.]

Reviews
Let me just start by talking about how fucking beautiful this album art is. Upon seeing something like that and discovering that it’s blackened speed metal, I had ...

Review: Khazad-dûm “Hymns from the Deep” [I Hate]

Reviews
Slow and menacing riffs with horrendous vocals is something that I can easily get behind. Dropping the frequency to the depth of funeral doom is definitely treading new ...

Review: Spectral Voice “Eroded Corridors of Unbeing” [Dark Descent Records]

Reviews
There are very few records that grew on me at the rate that Spectral Voice’s debut album did. I only found out about it within the past couple ...

Review: Manacle “No Fear to Persevere…” [Hard and Heavy Records, No Remorse Records]

Reviews
I truly have no idea why I’m only stumbling upon Manacle now, two years following their debut record. No Fear To Persevere avoids all of the redundancies that ...

Review: Haunt “Mind Freeze” [Shadow Kingdom Records]

Reviews
At the rate that Haunt puts out albums and EPs, it’s damn-near impossible to keep up with them. Both of their full-lengths Burst Into Flames (2018) and If ...

Review: Ice War “Manifest Destiny” [Dying Victims Productions]

Reviews
Fitting in with the traditional heavy metal revival bands, Ice War make a very stripped-down brand that only really scrapes from the bottom of the classic influences. Their ...

Review: Gatecreeper “Deserted” [Relapse records]

Reviews
Gatecreeper are a band that have a small surge of hype around them, and considering they’re coming to my home-town, I felt it my duty to look into ...

Review: Black Road “Witch of the Future” [DHU Records]

Reviews
Taking formation back in 2015, Black Road rose from Chicago Illinois, and they deliver a brand of stoner/doom that’s surprisingly accessible with a ghostly aura attached. Two years ...

Review: Midnight Priest “Aggressive Hauntings” [Metal On Metal Records]

Reviews
I’ve touched on many albums in my time as a reviewer that have made me end with something like “I don’t really like this, but you should listen ...

Review: Municipal Waste “Waste ‘Em All” [Six Weeks Records]

Reviews
The first Municipal Waste full-length is an anomaly that is far removed from what comes to mind when hearing them. I thought it was worth going back and ...

Review: Defiance “Product of Society” [Roadrunner Records]

Reviews
Born out of the late ‘80s thrash movement that resided on the techy side came a band known as Defiance. One with a smaller but still sizeable following, ...

Review: Necrosexual “GRIM 1”

Reviews
Earlier this year, I covered Necrosexual’s most recent EP, and while I was a bit skeptical about the antics and layout, it proved to be worthwhile. Recently, I ...

Review: Hell Fire “Mania” [RidingEasy Records]

Reviews
RidingEasy Records has been delivering some great stuff this year between Zig-Zags, Bus and my latest discovery Hell Fire. The band has been around for about a decade, ...
