Haut&Court. – Collapse Review

Haut&Court recently release their third album Collapse via No Good To Anyone & Duality Records.Haut&Court are a French death/grindcore/metal band from Strasbourg just North-East of France. They’ve been a band for 10 years now evolving on every recording they put out.   Collapse opens to a classic sludge/doom riff reminiscent of old Death mixed with Pallbearer which caught me slightly off guard as they haven’t really gone down that road before musically, this becomes a running theme through the entire […]

Ashen Horde- Antimony Review

2023 is going to become another flawless year for extreme metal and music as a whole and this new Ashen Horde album Antimony is one of the most expansive and enjoyable albums I’ve heard in a good while. This band has been around for nearly a decade and in their existence they have released a handful of albums and gotten better musically over the years.

Faustus- Memoriam Review

Sweden is home to so many amazing metal bands that have shaped every sub-genre of metal as a whole. Faustus can without a doubt stake a claim on the mountain of Death metal. Memoriam is their second full length album, the first being Laments of an Obscure Mind which came out in 2018 followed by a handful of singles released just this year in 2022. Memoriam is a massive leap forward from Laments of an Obscure Mind. The progression from […]

FAITHXTRACTOR-Contempt for a Failed Dimension Review

Ohio’s death metal crafters FAITHXTRACTOR have made a triumphant return with their brand new album, Contempt for a Failed Dimension.   This is their fourth studio offering since 2005 and the first to be released under Redefining Darkness Records.  Full of savagery and lethal guitar riffs, this is the band’s most ambitious and versatile album yet. From the distinct bass, powerhouse drums and shattering vocals, this two-man band has produced punishing yet raw music.  True metal fans can hear the homage […]

Thy Darkened Shade- Liber Lvcifer II-Mahapralaya Review

     Thy Darkened Shade have created the most diabolical, satanic and occult theme style of black metal that transcends the listener into a world full of gnosticism. They’ve crafted in what appears to be their most explosive, explorative and progressive driven records they’ve done to date. Liber Lvcifer II-Mahapralaya is their latest offering and is the continuation to 2014’s sophomore recording of Liber Lvcifer I: Khem Sedjet which was a conceptual album that showcased the band what they’re all […]

Bloodclot- Souls Review

With two previous releases under their belts and the first release since Metal Blade sophomore LP Up In Arms back in 2017, NYC crossover supergroup Bloodclot have just released their finest record yet with Souls— now available via Upstate Records! The fresh new lineup of Bloodclot has undoubtedly contributed to this being their strongest record yet— with legendary hardcore frontman John “Bloodclot” McGowan (formerly of the Cro-Mags) being the only constant in the band — the lineup supporting him this […]

Mithridatum- Harrowing Review

As 2022 is coming to a close, it  featured exquisite records from Lorna Shore, Revocation, Shadow Of Intent, Enterprise Earth and many more to list. Mithridatum features former members from both The Faceless and Abhorrent to craft us their debut full-length album of Harrowing which is released through one of my favorite labels right now Willowtip Records. Now, Mithridatum’s musical style is very interesting so to speak since their signature blend of blackened death metal really traversed the band into […]

Nothingness- Supraliminal Review

Based out of Minnesota, Nothingness are an extreme metal band that plays atmospheric, crushing and dissonant style of death metal but also incorporating elements of progressive, technical and old school arrangements. Supraliminal is the latest studio offering by the band and is released through the label Everlasting Spew Records. Musically, this is a cauldron of blending multiple styles of extreme music that is filled with heavy guitar riffs, bone-crushing drums, audible bass tones and guttural, sickening vocals that not only […]

Ingested- Ashes Lie Still Review

One of UK’s powerhouses in extreme music today, Ingested have become a mainstay in extreme metal music. They have toured with heavy hitters in the modern era of extreme metal from Cannibal Corpse, Revocation, Carnifex and many more. The first time I was turned on to Ingested was around the time when 2015’s offering of The Architect of Extinction came out which in turn became a favorite of mine that following year alongside their future releases. Overtime, Ingested quickly became […]

Revocation- Netherheaven Review

Revocation is a band I’ve been following very heavily since their 2011 record Chaos Of Forms was released and have pretty much been a fan ever since. Their style of extreme music combining elements of thrash, technical death and traditional death metal is sensational as I feel that this new album Netherheaven marks a brand new chapter into the band’s catalog and I can immediately right off the bat can say that this is without question the band’s heaviest, darkest […]
