Malefic Throne - Malefic Throne

This review could simply end in three short sentences: - Gene Palubicki (Perdition Temple, Angelcorpse, Blasphemic Cruelty) on guitars - Steve Tucker (Morbid Angel, Warfather) on vocals / bass - John Longstreth (Origin, Hate Eternal, ex-Angelcorpse) on drums But let's go in order and try not to lose our temper. Malefic Throne are the new crea...

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...

KHNVM - Portals To Oblivion

Second full length for KHNVM, pronounced as Kha-noom, death metal band with members from Germany and Bangladesh. After the first album released before this terrible pandemic and with an intense work of songwriting, KHNVM release their second album entitled "Portals To Oblivion" via Neckbreaker Records. After an intro that recalls oriental melodi...

Diablery - Candles

Demanding album, especially for the length of the songs, for these Greeks Diablery. The band, active since 2008, with this "Candles" reaches its second full length after their long distance debut titled "Architect" released in 2014. Before that, two EPs were released, in 2010 and 2011 and a split with the Shadowcraft released in 2017. 9 songs fo...

Stabbing - Ravenous Psychotic Onslaught

Pleasant surprise for these Stabbing, brutal death metal band from the boundless lands of Texas. Formed during this 2021, the girls/boys come from multiple experiences that in this EP ("Ravenous Psychotic Onslaught") of only four pieces built well for the future. It's hard to believe that behind the microphone of this guttural band there is actu...

Conjureth - Majestic Dissolve

"Majestic Dissolve" is the debut album of these (unfortunately unknown to me) Conjureth, a Californian band that will entrust its work to the increasingly attentive Memento Mori, a label specialized in this type of sound. The band was born in 2018 by releasing two demos (which will then be resumed on vinyl) released in the course of the past year;...

Centenary - Death… The Final Frontier

Second full length for the Americans Centenary, a Detroit band that has been active for less than ten years but with already two albums, an EP and a demo behind it. "Death… The Final Frontier" is an old school death metal album in the veins of first Entombed and bands close to that kind of 90's sound. Raw and dirty sound at the right point, rhyt...

Metator - Akocedaktor

From hot and sunny Spain here is this duo dedicated to a death / brutal with multiple grindcore hues. Metator arrive at the first full lenght giving it the name of the first incarnation of the band, with whom they made themselves known in the previous decades and with whom they recorded a first demo in 2006. Metator do not go much for the subtle...

Monument Of Misanthropy - Unterweger

Second official album for Monument Of Misanthropy, a band that includes George Wilfinger on vocals (Disfigured Divinity) and Cédric Malebolgia (ex Swart Crown / Putridity) on drums. "Unterweger" is a brutal death metal album like it hasn't been heard in a long time. In the 11 tracks that make up this work (the twelfth is a cover of the great Mor...

Edenic Past - Red Amarcord

This "Red Amarcord" by the Americans Edenic Past is a rather bizarre and imaginative project, a band that sees among its ranks characters of the caliber of Colin Marston (Dysrhythmia, Gorguts, Krallice) and Nicholas McMaster (Krallice, Turris Eburnea). 13 tracks of an experimental and sometimes psychedelic brutal death that incorporate more or l...

Heir Corpse One - Fly The Fiendish Skies

Debut album for Heir Corpse One, brand new (and unknown) band that includes members (Rogga Johansson, Kjetil Lynghaug, Marcus Rosenqvist and Peter Svensson) from multiple Swedish bands. 10 songs for a total of 28 minutes of death metal without technicalities or anything else. Death'n'roll in a clear and typical Swedish vein pushed towards heavy...

Stygian Dark - Gorelords Of War

Great surprise these Stygian Dark, band that sees the good old Dave Ingram (Benediction, Bolt Thrower) behind the microphone. Death metal old mold that remembers the good times gone. Dark and dark as a disc like this must sound. Black like pitch to stay glued and never separate. "Gorelords Of War" immediately starts with the title track and is i...
