If you haven’t figured out yet, Australia is one of my favorite metal scenes in the world, seconded only to Japan that is. I have covered a few Australian new releases before (Destruktor, Armoured Angel, Sewercide) and in each mention I have made a Simpsons influenced joke about Australia, not because I hate Australia (I’ve never even been there) but because I love the Simpsons. Well I have ran out of Simpsons jokes so lets play some knifey spoony (yeah I...

After 14 years and two demos the world has finally been presented with a full length album from Norway’s Deathfare. Shotgun Surgery is some demented death metal that exemplifies the meaning of brutality. Independently released last year, Heathen Tribes has formally released this violent monstrosity upon the world.

Here is something for you doomdeathers out there, Dream Death’s Journey Into Mystery. Have you ever wondered what Slayer would sound like if they were a doom metal band… Look no further than Dream Death’s 1987 release Journey into Mystery. This is one of those albums that was cast away to early. There is so much riffage and slow on this album. There were very few outfits in this time frame doing music like Dream Death. Just when you thought Paradise Lost...
