CRIES OF SAINTS – Eternal Requiem

Cries of Saints is a two piece slamming death metal band that released their debut EP titled Eternal Requiem back in August of 2021 and I’m ashamed I’m just now getting a good listen on it. Hailing from Spain, these guys really bring the sauce in this five track debut, even featuring one of my personal favorite bands Counteractt. It has a melodic yet heavy opening track which does not set an example of what the rest of the EP […]

IMPERIALIST – Zenith

I am always fascinated when bands in the black metal spectrum discuss sci-fi themes and fictionalized stories. To me, Imperialist are a band I have kept my eyes peeled for quite awhile after I heard their debut full-length Cipher which was a album that have met high expectations and became one of the best releases in today’s modern era of black metal. Once again, Transcending Obscurity Records have never yet cease to disappoint as they’ve been on a constant roll […]

PEELING FLESH – Slamaholics Mixtape

Buckle up kids this one gets bumpy. Peeling Flesh released this killer EP with a title good enough to attract any slam fan. Now for 10 minutes and 58 seconds you wouldn’t think this EP would offer the thrill ride that it actually does but with two heavy features from Traumatomy and Pintglass, you know it’s going to get wild. Start to finish my neck didn’t stop with this one, it’s aggressive as hell from the opening bell and they […]

AEON – God Ends Here

If you know Sweden’s Aeon and didn’t know a new album was coming out after waiting nearly a decade since 2012’s Aeons Black was released through Metal Blade Records, you better clean off your stereo or vinyl player because Sweden’s death metal crafters Aeon are back and this time around this is one of my most anticipated albums to be coming out in 2021. After seeing them live with Katakylsm years ago, Aeon not only blew my brains out on […]

HATE – Rugia

At this point of time if you know blackened death metal, the historical events and stories about Poland’s extreme metal hitters Hate, then I can assure you by now reading this review that you may have heard a album or two. Since the band’s formation started back in 1991 being a band for over three decades into their career, Hate are back with a punishing, tormenting and the most diabolical releases they’ve done to date and with Rugia being the […]

DOMINICIDE – The Architecture Of Oppression

Dominicide, a four piece band from Glasgow, just put out an absolute top tier EP called The Architecture of Oppression September 10th, and I am just loving every minute of this! It’s constantly hitting you with sick riff, after sick riff, and it’s a very welcomed mix of metal sub genres (melodic death metal, thrash, deathcore, tech death). I am so impressed with how good this is, and I feel like a lot more people need to get ears on […]

CARCASS – Torn Arteries

After a eight long year gap of 2013’s Surgical Steel, England’s longtime veterans Carcass are back and this time around they’ve created the most important, iconic and memorable albums in extreme metal history. From the earliest stages of their goregrind and grindcore days of albums such as Reek of Putrefaction and my favorite being Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious, to when they started to abandon the genres and ultimately created a huge change in their sound being 1993’s Heartwork which […]

INFERI – Vile Genesis

There’s been hundreds, if not thousands of fantastic bands within the technical and melodic death metal spectrum that have been a huge name for themselves. Inferi are a band who are one of the most well known artists in the scene who established themselves on the technical death metal scene to create a sound so versatile, commendable, intelligent and amazing quality releases overtime. Now, I can’t say much about the band’s history but what I can say is Inferi are […]

RIVERS OF NIHIL – The Work

In 2018 I reviewed Where Owls Know My Name by Pennsylvania’s technical death metal band Rivers Of Nihil which was a album not only met my expectations sky high on hearing the most breathtaking, beautifully crafted and designed albums in the 2010’s era, it captured the essences, nature and beauty of the record showcasing growth, maturity, experimentation and the band dived into a deeper, more melodically and jazzy inspired signatures of technical death metal was a record I have never […]

MORTEM OBSCUREM – Eradication Of The Human Endeavor

Let me say first off I have witnessed these guys bust their asses to get this album done to their standards, the quality of this album is top notch and I will not ignore the effort put in, now onto the heavy heavy. Mortem Obscurem is a technical death metal band with a very strong orchestral touch. This entire album had me personally all over the place, the amount of range both in the music and the vocals gives the […]
