SIN DELIVERANCE – Ultimate Hatred

Imagined Fleshgod Apocalypse, Carnifex, Lorna Shore and Shadow Of Intent were to combine elements of extreme metal with a blackened, symphonic, technical and melodically driven style of deathcore you get Mother Russia’s very own Sin Deliverance and the monstrous debut full-length offering titled Ultimate Hatred. I’ve been hearing great things about this band so I went to dive into their catalog and heard the 2019 single Eternal Suffering which got me hooked almost immediately just hearing such chaotic, blasphemous, very […]

CRAVING FOR CHAOS – Brink Of Calamity

Since the band’s formation in 2009, Craving For Chaos is a melodic death metal band that doesn’t seem to get much attention but for a debut full-length album titled Brink Of Calamity released on Infernal Hymns Records, there’s some really cool things about this band and I honestly do firmly believe this is some top notch quality melodic death metal needed to be heard much as possible. Musically, it brings a Amon Amarth, Opeth and other bands within the Swedish, […]

INTERNAL ORGANS EXTERNAL – Apocalyptic Domination

One man projects have always fascinated me in terms of consistency, deliverance and dedication whether it be bands like Putrid Pile or Rendered Helpless, Arizona’s Internal Organs External was born in 2019 by the man himself Vince Otero and created the debut EP on Vicious Instinct Records titled Apocalyptic Domination. Musically, this is a paradise for any fans of brutal death, slam and deathcore since the melodies, compositions, instrumentals and production featuring catchy guitar riffs, structures, guttural vocals, great drum […]

COGNITIVE – Malevolent Thoughts Of A Hastened Extinction

Unique Leader Records are one of the best labels that have continuously impressed me with many great releases in 2021 from Osiah, Humanity’s Last Breath and Mental Cruelty, to New Jersey’s very own Cognitive which I’ve been following them since their sophomore full-length album Deformity which took the band’s heavy influences on technical and brutal death metal and took their music into the most visceral and energetic releases of their career. Last album we’ve heard by the band was in […]

This time around, Congregation Pestilence is the eighth full-length offering by these Washingtonians […]

OXYGEN DESTROYER – Sinister Monstrosities Spawned By The Unfathomable Ignorance Of Humankind

Oxygen Destroyer are a brutal thrashing Kaiju metal band hailing all the way from my hometown in Seattle, Washington and for a band sharing inspiration for Godzilla themed lyricism and astonishing musical components this is one of the wildest, thrashiest, and riffiest albums you’ll hear all of 2021. After their marvelous debut album in 2018 being Bestial Manifestations of Malevolence and Death, this album released on Redefining Darkness Records is extremely well presented and they’ve dropped a massive atomic bomb, […]

KRYPTIK MUTATION – Pulled From The Pit

Imagined if you played a video game and cranked Blessed Are The Sick era of Morbid Angel but in a more thrashy, contemporary and modernized hybrid of death metal with hints of thrash and some brutal death in the mix, you get Texas’s Kryptik Mutation and the debut studio full-length offering Pulled From The Pit which is released on Redefining Darkness Records. Now, the artwork itself should give you a perspective on what these Texans are about but in retrospect, […]
