Artist: Black RatAlbum: Demo 2017Genre: Black Metal/ ThrashOrigin: CanadaLabel: IndependentYear: 2017 % Discuss this album in the MetalXtreme forum! Blackrat has been around for roughly 5 years. In those 5 years they have refined their sound into a raw black thrash. This 2017 demo is f****** sweet. This reeks of old school. This is some quality black thrash, even if it is just a demo.

Desolate and raw is the sound of the debut EP from Mort aux Gueux. Though Vaurien is very truly a black metal ep, there seems to be a withering feel of old school crust seeping into the roots. Roots are all it bears left because this is the perfect ep to listen to that shows the bleak reality of our downward spiral of a future. It is driving and it does give a fuck what you think or feel, it is Mort aux Gueux’s Vaurien EP. If you like black metal with a bit of crust...

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...

For those who don’t know, 30 years ago a band which was the combining forces of Anthrax and Nuclear Assault featuring a then unknown Anthrax roadie by the name of Billy Milano on vocals dropped one of the most influential metal albums. Although crossover thrash was already in its roots with Suicidal Tendencies and D.R.I a new band arose which permeated metal as a greater influence in the genre, that band of course is Stormtroopers of Death better known as S.O.D. 2015...

    While digging through the promo pile I’ve noticed this album numerous times and skipped over it because it looked like just another humdrum, Norwegian, kvlt black metal band. I was very quick to judge a book by it’s cover well I actually judged it by its logo. I was surprised, shocked, and confused by this album in all the best ways possible. Their name is Sepulcher, a name derived from a big Brazilian band, they sound like a forgotten eastern...

Let’s get one thing clear right now, what the term hardcore means nowadays is so loose. This ain’t no scene kid post-hardcore BULLSHIT, this isn’t a fucking eerie note, breakdown, chug along, slit my wrists album, this is some pure, original, New York hardcore punk that’s all thrashed out, this is the mother fucking CRO-MAGS! and if you don’t know Cro-Mags, well you gotta know! While hardcore punk existed from the late 70’s starting with...
