If you are unaware of this band’s existence, change that right now! Abhorer’s Unholy Blasphemer is a compilation of all their work. This is the band that brought the extreme sounds to Asia. Without Abhorer, besides their impact on Asia, black metal would be lacking a lot of blasting and ruthless abrasive passages. Abhorer is a band to add to any...

Asphodelus – Dying Beauty & The Silent Sky 5/5 (1)

Doom death always has an extent of elegance and destruction. Following the previous statement, you can say that Asphodelus‘s Dying Beauty & the Silent Sky is a tornado made of fire and ice. There is a somber atmosphere that is delivered aptly combined with an overture of strength to back it up consistently and substantially throughout all of Dying Beauty & the Silent Sky‘s 23 minute extent. For fans of the genre of doom death, this is not one that will...

Firstly, I would like to express that Abigail is the band that introduced me to the extreme metal scene of Japan. From there I found many other bands of varying extreme genres of music including black metal, death metal, grind, hardcore and crust from the land of the rising sun. I personally own every full length release of Abigail‘s, including an original CD pressing of Forever Street Metal Bitch from Drakkar Productions, a few splits and a demo. There is not a...

Black metal that grinds is not a new concept, it is just a rare occurrence. Usually when you hear the two fused  together, bands like to emphasize the highs of black metal with the highs of the drums of grindcore. Altarage did the opposite as they focused on the fusion of elements of the heavier forms of grind like Blood and early Bolt Thrower and fused it to some gritty raw blasphemous black metal.  If you are in search of another notable example of grinding black metal...

Aweeeeeee yeahhhh (pun intended) this is the good shit right here. Dark chaotic progessive black metal. Though this full length album consists of only 3 songs, the length of the tracks makes up for small track list, with each track ranging from 15-20 minutes. This isn’t your copy/paste style black metal, these guys switch riffs and tempos pretty frequently, often using a various different drumbeats and riffing styles outside of the traditional black metal. This keeps...
