Heaving Earth - Darkness Of God

<p>Heaving Earth, at least for the writer, are one of the few extreme bands that have made consistency their daily modus operandi. Regardless of the fashions or the commercialization that some strands of death metal are going through in recent years, Heaving Earth continue to propose themselves with their personal music. Innovative, acrobatic, visi...

Gutricyde - Gutricyde

<p>First official album for these Gutricyde, death metal band from Dallas, Texas. The band was born just over 2 years ago dedicating themselves to what can be defined as a brutal / slam gore with a clear American stamp. Initially founded as a one man band by Bret Smith (an original member of the 90's was Texas Death metal band Embalmed), Gutricyde...

Brute - Essence Of Tyranny

<p>Totally in your face this fourth album by Brute, death metal band from Slovakia.

Tralineate - Parasites

<p>The new work by Chris Sanders under the moniker of Tralineate is difficult to assimilate (and therefore very interesting). "Parasites" is the second album by the one man band from Topeka, Kansas after the one released in 2017.&nbsp;</p><p>Tralineate accompany us on this long journey called "Parasites" with their progressive death of a thousand s...

Nihilo - Resolution

"Resolution" is the fourth official album by Swiss Nihilo, a death metal band active since 2003. We move on old school territories that are very reminiscent of the Northern European scene, but also the American one. Suffice it to say that in the title track we find Chris Monroy from the seminal Skeletal Remains as guest vocal. 11 songs to enclos...

Malefic Throne - Malefic Throne

Nihility - Beyond Human Concepts

Second album for Nihility, blackned death metal from Portugal. "Beyond Human Concepts" comes out after only 3 years from the previous "Thus Spoke The Antichrist" which had already spread the name of the band within the European death metal scene. In my opinion, this album sounds much darker and heavier than the previous one, highlighting the true p...
