Belphegor – The Devils – Album Review

Artist: Belphegor Album Title: The Devils Label: Nuclear Blast Records Date of Release: 29 July 2022 In spite of the fact that I have spent many a year enjoying the nefarious sounds of the black and death metal genres, not to mention their various subgenres and offshoots, it is with a little embarrassment to declare  Continue Reading »

Soilwork – Övergivenheten – Album Review

Artist: Soilwork Album Title: Övergivenheten Label: Nuclear Blast Records Date of Release: 19 August 2022 I find it absolutely fascinating how the pandemic has affected different people, and bands, so differently.

Immolation – Acts Of God – Album Review

Artist: Immolation Album Title: Acts Of God Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 18 February 2022 It has been well documented on the pages of this website that I arrived late to the death metal party.

Artist: NorthTale Album Title: Eternal Flame Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release:  12 November 2021 I came into this review with very low expectations.

Artist: Carcass Album Title: Torn Arteries Label: Nuclear Blast Records Date of Release: 17 September 2021 My last Carcass review was for the 2020 EP entitled ‘Despicable’.

My Dying Bride – Macabre Cabaret – EP Review

Artist: My Dying Bride Album Title: Macabre Cabaret Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 20 November 2020 Not content with releasing an incredibly strong and emotionally-wrought full length album earlier in the year, Yorkshire’s gloom and doom merchants have returned this autumn with a three-track EP entitled ‘Macabre Cabaret’ that provides fans with another twenty-plus  Continue Reading »
