BELPHEGOR – The Devils

Twelve albums in and over thirty years in existence, Austria’s blackened death metal masters Belphegor have returned from the fiery depths of hell and are one of the most influential bands in the blackened death metal spectrum alongside Behemoth, God Dethroned and many others. I first got into Belphegor around 2009 after hearing their 2008 effort of Bondage Goat Zombie and not only was I so heavily invested and intrigued by their soundscapes, progression and songwriting capabilities but not knowing […]

French based atmospheric/post-black metal project Trëma was formed in the year 2022 and have unleashed the debut full-length album of A l’aurore du crépuscule which means at the dawn of dusk in French. Musically, this is a blend of atmospheric black metal with post and depressive signatures which is a genre that I have started to get more appreciation since I have a fair share of certain bands within that hybrid. Right off the bat, the instrumentation work is superb […]

DE PROFUNDIS – The Corruption Of Virtue

For over two decades into their career, United Kingdom’s very own De Profundis have evolved and submerged themselves into becoming one of my absolute favorites in the underground extreme music community. I been a fan of these guys for long as I can remember and I’m very pleased to say that this record, The Corruption Of Virtue is perhaps the band’s tightest, most cohesive and structured albums they’ve ever created. Knowing their style, the signature blends of visceral arrangements and […]

I’ve never felt so proud of being a compassionate extreme metal fan seeing up and rising artists of various genres to not only find their footing terms of structure and musicality, but it feels so fresh and naturalistic sounding to witness more bands within the underground to make a name for themselves in the upcoming years. Today, this band known as Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement is a two piece death metal project fronted by Lust Of Decay’s Jordan Varela and Cesspool […]

Australia’s extreme metal crafters Psycroptic have returned after four years prior to their last album As The Kingdom Drowns and this time around, they’re back hungrier and more creative than they ever sounded in their career.
