GATECREEPER – Sonoran Depravation

Of all the bands who have released their debuts recently, and have begun their careers spreading riffs around the world, few have been as solid as Gatecreeper. Hailing from Arizona, the band uses very tuned-down guitars and riffs galore mixed in with solid writing to create a very solid first album, “The Sonoran Deprivation”. “Craving Flesh” opens up the album, and introduces most of the basic aspects of the band’s sound, including the guitars, their decent, but not overdone, production, […]

BOG WRAITH – Omen

Blackened deathcore is a genre that not many metal heads are associated by these standards but Lansing, Michigan’s very own Bog Wraith takes the element of surprise as they’ve contributed and crafted a symbolic album surely worth your immediate attention. Musically, the album’s lyricism is absolutely intelligent as not only the artwork represents murderous acts and witchery inspired themes but this 43 minute journey takes all 13 songs into a chaotic experience From the blackened death metal guitar riffage, pummeling […]

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY – The Great Collapse

The deathcore genre has a creativity issue. Like many genres that blow up in a short period of time, band after band pop up to try and recreate the sound that made the originals of the genre so bit. That’s why it is so refreshing to see a band doing something different. Fit For An Autopsy show that you don’t need an all-out brutal assault in order to be heavy as hell. Their latest album, “The Great Collapse” expertly combines […]

WITHIN DESTRUCTION – Deathwish

Within Destruction are a slamming death metal/deathcore band formed in 2010 from the depths of Jesenice, Slovenia and play a style of apocalyptic, damnation and wretched style of deathcore with slam compositions. After the massive success of 2016’s Rising Nemesis Records sophomore full-length entitled Void that became a global sensation as Deathwish marks a new chapter for these fine slam policemen as they marked new branches for the genre to become extraordinaire at finest. They’ve not only contributed themselves to […]

OF FEATHER AND BONE – Bestial Hymns of Perversion

When a band wears their influence on their sleeve loud and proud, and at the same time make good music that feels original, it feels special. Of Feather and Bone do this with Swedish death metal while creating a unique and well-crafted product. Their new album, “Bestial Hymns of Perversion”, just came out, and shows the band creating some solid, well-crafted death metal. “Repulsive Obscurity” opens the album, and has a short ambient intro, before launching into a very fast […]

GENOCIDE PACT – Order of Torment

Washington D.C.’s death metal outfitters Genocide Pact painted some of the most authentic and stabilized old school inspired musical components that will immediately grind your teeth beginning to front. From the production reminiscing of Bolt Thrower and Incantation, to the traditional and harmonized instrumentals, 2018’s Order Of Torment is a massive improvement that will not only crush the innocence of souls but the craftsmanship is what makes the album truly shine. While many modern day American death metal artists shift […]

FATHER BEFOULED – Desolate Gods

2017 for death metal was one of the most explosive years in recent memory and with Georgia’s very own Father Befouled. This is an album I cannot be anymore thankful enough to see them return with a punishing blow with 2017’s Dark Descent Records release of Desolate Gods. Borrowing influences from Immolation and Incantation Desolate Gods is without question the band’s ambitious, thunderous, aggressive and artistic material they’ve ever done in over a decade they’ve been active as musicians. If you’re […]

MOLESTED DIVINITY – Desolated Realms Through Iniquity

In the underground scene, there are many death metal bands with brutal sounds who are pumping out good albums with solid writing and brutal riffs. While there are many bands, one who just released a very brutal album is Molested Divinity, based out of Turkey. The band’s debut album, “Desolated Realms Through Iniquity” isn’t mind blowing or world changing, but it’s another slab of death metal that is sure to satisfy all fans of the genre, and deserves at least […]

GRAVESLAVE – Sick/Nasty

A band’s first full length album is always an interesting piece of work. Even if they have some other material built up, seeing what they do with their first big release is always a treat. Minnesota based Graveslave recently released their first full length, “Sick/Nasty”, and while it’s on the shorter side, only about 30 minutes, the material they choose to show off is not only solid, but manages to take both death metal and grind and combine them into […]

SUMMONING – With Doom We Come

Austria’s atmospheric black metal band Summoning is a band who’s musical branches touches the hearts and brilliance of metalheads to use their inspiration for Tolkien, Moorcock and nature themed lyricism and five years later we have With Doom We Come. Prior to 2013’s Old Mornings Dawn, With Doom We Come, an album that was evidently built on the ashes of leftover material from “Old Morning’s Dawn,” and the sound reflects that; it doesn’t deviate grossly from that style and is […]
