Deicide – Banished By Sin – Album Review

Artist: Deicide Album Title: Banished By Sin       Label: Reigning Phoenix Music Date of Release: 26 April 2024 I’ve never been a fan of Deicide. I’ll happily state that right at the outset.

Artist: Vanden Plas Album Title: The Empyrean Equation Of The Long Lost Things Label: Frontiers Music Date of Release: 19 April 2024 Vanden Plas and I go way back.

Artist: Selbst Album Title: Despondency Chord Progressions Label: Debemur Morti Productions Date of Release: 19 April 2024 I do believe that this is a first for me, in that I find myself reviewing a musical entity from Venezuela.
