My Dying Bride – A Mortal Binding – Album Review

Artist: My Dying Bride Album Title: A Mortal Binding Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 19 April 2024 When a band can boast no fewer than fourteen albums over a career spanning nearly 35 years, it’s inevitable that different fans will have different favourites.

Replicant – Infinite Mortality – Album Review

Artist: Replicant Album Title: Infinite Mortality Label: Transcending Obscurity Date of Release: 12 April 2024 2024 definitely feels like it’s the year that my tastes get even heavier and more extreme.

Artist: Witch Vomit Album Title: Funeral Sanctum Label: 20 Buck Spin Date of Release: 5 April 2024 Being the weak human that I am, I finally succumbed to the increasing chorus of positivity surrounding this album and checked it out.

Artist: Brodequin Album Title: Harbinger Of Woe Label: Season Of Mist: Underground Activists Date of Release: 22 March 2024 “With ‘Harbinger of Woe’, Brodequin reclaim their throne as the most brutal band in all of death metal.” Yup, they went there.

Necrophobic – In The Twilight Grey – Album Review

Artist: Necrophobic Album Title: In The Twilight Grey Label: Century Media Date of Release: 15 March 2024 My review of 2020’s ‘Dawn Of The Damned’ was essentially a diatribe aimed squarely at myself and my metal ‘radar’ for allowing Necrophobic to slip past me undetected for so long. I berated myself, wailed to the heavens  Continue Reading »

Skeletal Remains – Fragments Of The Ageless – Album Review

Artist: Skeletal Remains Album Title: Fragments Of The Ageless Label: Century Media Date of Release: 8 March 2024 Having favourably reviewed the past two albums from California’s Skeletal Remains, I felt it would have been considered bad form to not check out their latest full-length endeavour, ‘Fragments Of The Ageless’.
