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...

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...

Australia can be a harsh, hostile place to live. Australia is not new to spawning incredible extreme metal, just look at Sadistik Exekution, Armoured Angel, Blood Duster, and Destruktor to just name a few.  It is fitting that a continent of arid deserts and every creature poisonous and toothy has produced so much great extreme metal.  To those ranks, add relative newcomers Sewercide.  The Melbourne-based band has actually been around five years now, building their name and...

Australia, the unsettling spawning ground of demonic, extreme metal. Destruktor, Slaughter Lord, Atomizer, Sadistik Exekution, Deströyer 666 are few that claim home in Australia. Though Australia is quite known for metal here are still many secrets of the land down under. One of the down under secrets of plunder is Armoured Angel. I say plunder because as Armoured Angel transitioned from a thrash band to a death metal band, that is the sound that the Australian metal scene...

It’s weird to think that such devastating music comes from the land down under. Not that it’s strange since all that seems to come out of the land of kangaroos, koala bears, dollarydoos, and games of knify spoony is black thrash (damn good black thrash too) its just strange because its Australia…. Wait a minute that’s when you remember Mad Max is from Australia and the fucking dingos eat babies! It has been 6 years since Destruktor has released a new...
