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...

    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...

Grindcore is an interesting genre to classify something as. The only real distiction as labeling something as grindcore is over excessive blast beats and 30 second songs played at insane speed. There are some grind bands that sound more like a hardcore band and there are some that straight up sound like a death metal band. Even comparing the two founding fathers of grindcore to each other you can see the difference…. If you don’t know, their names are Repulsion...

YOU LOOK SO DISGRACED, WITH A FACE FULL OF NUCLEAR WASTE! Drawing inspiration from Amebix’s Monolith and Sodom’s Agent Orange, Wastelander’s debut Wardrive is an exceptional entry to the theme of post apocalyptic survival. The only thing I am wondering is when the fuck are you guys going to release a follow up album to this kick ass album? If you are playing any of the Fallout games, while watching Mad Max, while having this album playing, you just might...

 This album, along with Carnivore and Wastelander’s War Drive should be the soundtrack to the Road Warrior.. If it came out later. Amebix, name ring a bell? The most mainstream exposure they ever got was Igor wearing one of their shirts in a music video for a Sepultura track off of Chaos A.D. which is quite Ironic because both bands have an album called Arise. Guess which one came out first. The borderline between crust punk and metal has always been thin. The...
