I feel that the biggest problem metal bands face is directly forcing their energy to strictly fit a genre. They alienate their creativity to it’s full potential by limiting themselves to the politics of one genre, sound, scene, or ideology. Rarely a band like Khthoniik Cerviiks arrives and shows everyone how to think outside the lines of the set rules so to speak that genres bind music to. SeroLogiikal Scars is a¬†daring album that is bold, sophisticated, entrancing,...

The first time I ever heard the highly under-rated grind of Germany’s Blood was when I saw the name and logo strewn across the unwelcoming blue art of the¬†album Gas.Flames.Bones. Long story short I was not disappointed by the grind that Blood makes (or is that short story long because it is grindcore…??). Blood is one of the most, if not the most, consistently impressive and true bands to the genre of grindcore. O Agios Pethane is of their most appraised albums...

Haunting and atmospheric is the words that best describe Akatechism’s demo Dripping Flames. Through distinct breaks of doom and black metal this demo gives us a new band to look forward to hearing a full length from. The production of this demo is crisp considering it is just that, a demo. Though it is only 3 tracks long this demo clocks in at about a half hour. Very rarely can I sit through these types of albums/demos, that was not the case with Akatechism’s...

  Mid-Tempo riffs with some lightning fast tremlo-picks into blistering solos, this demo has got some casket dust still on it. Venefixion’s Defixio is gonna blow people away when it drops on October 2nd from Iron Bonehead. I like bands like this that compose metal of differnet sub genres and meld it together to create their own sound. Venefixion is going to be a big band, I can already tell. So make sure you pick this demo up the second it drops. This demo is...
