Shadow Realm‘s debut self titled EP is a monster that revealed itself to the world last year. With a maddening progressive approach to thrash and not sacrificing aggression is Shadow Realm from Australia. There is nothing that manages to disappoint on this EP. Check out this quick teaser for the album below to get a taste of the steal. Hopefully I can get into contact with this band soon to conduct an interview. The sad news is that the original is sold out, as it was...

I talked about this album last year when it was only available on cassette, I just discovered that this kick ass album hit Spotify recently. I do not know when it hit because I have a copy of the tape… That news is not all. It seems as though Sepulcher also released a CD copy of Mausoleum Tapestry as well. Check out my little write up of Mausoleum Tapestry here, and check out the album below. You need to buy...

Black Metal, a dynamic genre that has a depth greater than the ocean itself. There are bands that create something new, yet it is boring. There are bands that arrive that are just regurgitations of the past. There are bands that made a sound in this genre that are the staple, the epitome, the pinnacle. This is a genre that very rarely has something new, original, unique, fresh, and heavy as fuck in the traditional sense. Then comes Sacrificio‘s Guerra Eterna, I will...

Slayer’s “Reign in Blood” turns 30!			No ratings yet.

Posted by on Oct 10, 2016 in 1986, Essential Albums, S, This Month of Metal, Thrash, USA |

The year was 1986 and the extreme’s of thrash metal were starting to be pushed to higher boundaries. With 2 albums already released, Slayer was already making a huge name for themselves. Though “Hell Awaits” was heavier and darker sounding that its predecessor, the iconic album “Reign in Blood” went even further down the same path, leaving an even bigger, if not the BIGGEST mark on metal history. Though the album is technically considered...

Hailing from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, much like another thrash gem by the name of Morbid Saint, Toxic Ruin is here with Subterranean Terror. Like thrashing lightning storm Subterranean Terror by Toxic Ruin is a bolt of swift thrash sent from the speed demon gods themselves. Released two months ago, I am just now hearing this band for the first time as I am writing this. This is some damn good thrash. From “Submerged in Chaos” to the self titled track “Toxic...

Beyond the ailment that comes with being type-casted into a certain genre, sometimes there comes a band that eliminates the stereotype and sets the bar higher. MetalXtreme would like to present the first Deathcore band we have ever accepted into our ranks as not only acceptable but appreciative. SIGNAL THE SLAUGHTER! Here is Hash Slinging Slasher by Signal The Slaughter! Unlike contemporaries in the genre, there is an evolutionary transition that transpires throughout this...
