Stautory Tape #1 - Of Heathen Legions and Keys of Silver

Good readers, we’re witnesses to a time when analogue’s coming back with full force, with vinyl rising from its grave and tape following in its wake, yadda yadda yadda. I could carry on if I was some Vice journalist with a pumpkin spice latte and not a Hungarian misanthrope with a dead-end job and a […]

[review] White Medal - Guthmers Hahl (Aphelion Productions)

Pagan metal. Ever since the infestation of Finntroll, Ensiferum and their ilk the genre, once spearheaded by such pioneers as Primordial and Bathory has become a parody of itself, producing nothing but contempt out of anyone with a modicum of taste. With lyrics building a “Lord of the Rings”-esque vision of a sugar-coated pagan past, […]

[review] Supreme Carnage - Morbid Ways to Die (Redefining Darkness Records | Raw Skull Records)

This is just a solid brutal death metal album with a few melodic surprises. The band hails from Germany which means fuck all as there’s nothing inherently German sounding about it. Lead throatsman, Dragoncolon, enunciates everything in perfect English, the sort of death metal vocals you can understand yet retain their brutality and don’t cause […]

[review] WROK - De Onheilsbode (Heidens Hart Records)

Ahh the good old Low Countries: drugs, windmills, tulips, brothels and filthy Metal of Death. Despite being overshadowed by their Scandinavian and South American brethren there have been quite a few quality groups around trodding their own paths, besmirching the good name of the region, such as Bestial Summoning, Countess, Funeral Winds and Lugubrum among […]

[review] WHIPSTRIKER - Merciless Artillery (Hells Headbangers records)

Whipstriker is a brazilian Black/Speed metal act which may not need any introduction for many of you, coming from the same gutter of fellow bands like the mighty Power from Hell or Flagelador, which breath the same air of violence and hate in this southern jungle of madness. So is not a strange thing all […]

[review] SHAKMA - House Of Possession (Duplicate Records)

Shakma is a horror themed thrash metal band hailing from Norway consisting of one metalhead and three other guys that wouldn’t look out of place wearing Shinedown and Nickelback shirts. I’ve listened to this all the way through like five times, in the car, at home on a quality stereo, with tits headphones whilst walking […]

[review] The Black Sorcery – ...And the Beast Spake Death from Above (Krucyator Productions)

What we have here is yet another “bestial” blackened death metal platter courtesy of the Great White North. One need only view the fucking savage Moyen style black and white art adorning the cover to know exactly what to expect of this release. This stuff leans more towards the Archgoat side of things than the […]

[review] GHOUL CULT - Ghoul Cult (Duplicate records)

Ghoul Cult is two dickheads from Norway playing a brand of black/death/thrash in the style of Witchtrap, albeit more mid-paced and with far more nods to Hellhammer than their Columbian counterparts. This is a discography collection of sorts, collecting all recorded output prior to 2016, as the song “To the Tombs” they played on the […]

[review] Grave Upheaval – (untitled) (Nuclear War Now! Productions)

Australia brought us many good bands within obscure and just killer music, there are alot of bands which has conquered our minds and all the bestialbangers following them during the years! GRAVE UPHEAVAL is one among those with just unbelievable killer music. Originally formed 10 years ago in Queensland by guys who has been also […]

[review] Shambles (Thailand) - Primitive Death Trance (Blood Harvest records)

You have noticed here is SHAMBLES coming from Thailand because there is one more Shambles but from Bulgaria and with the different musical genre. SHAMBLES was formed in Samutprakarn 21 years ago (1997) (then moved to Bangkok later) and was not enough known among bestialbangers worldwide, moreover started with brutal death/grind, you know. Later musicians […]
