Blaze Of Perdition – Upharsin – Album Review

Artist: Blaze Of Perdition Album Title: Upharsin Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 19 April 2024 I remember being pretty impressed with the last record that Poland’s Blaze Of Perdition released, 2020’s ‘The Harrowing Of Hearts’. As a result, I am pleased to be in the possession of the latest release from the band  Continue Reading »

Witch Vomit – Funeral Sanctum – Album Review

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. What initially put me off was the name of the band which didn’t necessarily inspire  Continue Reading »

Myrath – Karma – Album Review

Artist: Myrath Album Title: Karma Label: earMUSIC Date of Release: 8 March 2024 Somewhat unbelievably, this is the very first time I have ventured a review of a Myrath album. I’ve been aware of the Tunisian metal band for a number of years as friends and acquaintances have sung their praises since they released their  Continue Reading »

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 »

ALMO – Reconciliation – Album Review

Artist: ALMO Album Title: Reconciliation Label: Independent Release Date of Release: 15 March 2024 Why do I write music reviews on a website by myself for no pay and very little apparent reward? It’s partly about giving something back to the music community that has given me so much enjoyment over the years. I’m not  Continue Reading »

Artist: Amaranthe Album Title: The Catalyst Label: Nuclear Blast Records Date of Release: 23 February 2024 I have followed the career of Amaranthe since the very beginning.

Silent Skies – Dormant – Album Review

Artist: Silent Skies Album Title: Dormant Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 1 September 2023 “Are you prepared…” These are, fittingly, the first three words that are sung by Tom Englund at the beginning of ‘Construct’. It is the opening composition of ‘Dormant’, the third album from Silent Skies, the collaboration between Englund and Vikram  Continue Reading »

AVKRVST – The Approbation – Album Review

Artist: AVKRVST Album Title: The Approbation Label: InsideOut Music Date of Release: 16 June 2023 OK, I’m going to start this review by tackling the elephant in the room at the outset: the name of the band. It’s hard enough to get noticed and to gain traction in the music world at the best of  Continue Reading »

Crown Lands – Fearless – Album Review

Artist: Crown Lands Album Title: Fearless Label: Spinefarm / Universal Music Canada Date of Release: 31 March 2023 Music is a funny old thing, especially when mixed with the human mind. Put the two together and I swear that it makes less and less sense every day. Take this album as a prime example. A  Continue Reading »

The Anchoret – It All Began With Loneliness – Album Review

Artist: The Anchoret Album Title: It All Began With Loneliness Label: Willowtip Records Date of Release: 23 June 2023 We all like different things, it’s part of being human.
