Originally released in 2012, Bustum‘s Demonolosophy has been reissued on Iron County Records. This is some kick ass Croatian black metal. On initial listening Demonolosophy may come off a bit primitive and raw, but there is an elegance of symphony buried within this album. There is a lot of distinct bass playing which is actually audible, I always appreciate that in a black metal release. The riffs are epic and dispelling. The drumming is very stoic but that is...

Riddle me this, riddle me that, why the fuck did the Metal-Archives remove Beowülf from the entries? I mean, they still have Excel and Beyond Possession and those two lay way more on the punk side of crossover. Who the fuck knows with those ass backwards elitist fuckwads that also removed Toxic Narcotic but host numerous amounts of (insert buzzword)-core bands on there. Well we’re not here to discuss the actual amount of metal required in the equation to be considered...

  Previous to Realm of Chaos, Bolt Thrower was an extremely crusty, hardcore, grind outfit. To classify Bolt Thrower’s previous work pre-Realm of Chaos, even their debut In Battle There is No Law!, as death metal  would be a stretch. Realm of Chaos was a new sound for Bolt Thrower as they traded their crust punk tendencies for pure grind and their hardcore punk sounds for death metal, creating the first of many extremely heavy, unrelenting , warfare influenced,...

One of the most important albums in the world of extreme metal. The music that Bathory made on their 1984 debut self titled album changed the sound of metal forever. This is still one of the most raw, evil, and most kick ass metal albums ever made. Black Fucking Metal! So many bands were influenced by this album it is incredible. Venom may have came up with the name but Bathory alongside Mercyful Fate were the ones that came up with the sound. Bathory is when metal really...

 Before changing their name to Banished they were known as Baphomet, they changed their name to Banished due to the fact that everyone wanted their band’s name to be Baphomet in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Despite having a video on MTV, oh wait let me explain, before the M stood for metrosexualrealitytvteenmombabymamajerseyshoredubstepbullshit the M stood for music and when  Headbanger’s Ball came on it stood for Metal, Banished is fucking heavy....

Blasphemic Cruelty is back after 7 years with this intense, punishing, hurricane of hellfire, Crucible of the Infernum. Sounding like a true old school death metal release, Crucible of the Infernum is an unrelenting and ruthless EP. A real take no prisoners approach to their sound. Just what death metal needs. 4 tracks of brutality including a cover of Sodom,”The Crippler”. The only downside this EP is that it’s just an EP. We need a new full length follow...
