Hailing from the newly diabolical lands of extreme metal, Bangladesh, is Orobas. Orobas‘s new EP Arise In Impurity is a delightfully evil and destructive ┬áblend of black and death metal. If you are unaware, obviously you never read anything on this site, the extreme metal scene in Bangladesh is practically a fury that is spewing from the mouth of hell. From the “Ode To Impurity” intro ’till the last reverberating riff of Orobas‘s cover of...

It has been a while since I have heard something new from Spain, but I am glad that band to break the silence for me was Crimson Slaughter. Upon reading the name I mistakenly read Cryptic Slaughter so I felt my expectations would be a little jaded because Cryptic Slaughter is one of my favorite bands, but, once I heard the chaotic riffs, lightning solos and sporadic bass heavy leads that Cycle of Decay holds, I forgot all about Cryptic Slaughter. Crimson Slaughter‘s...

Alright, I promise I am not going to fuck this up like I did recently with Mortal Strike where I mistakenly called Austrians Australian and when I called Malokarpatan Slovenian when they are Slovakian. BattleX is an awesome traditional heavy metal influenced Thrash band from Slovenia. There was a sound that thrash developed just before the accursed term half-thrash arrived in the early 90’s that derived after the turbulent 80’s thrash scene broke the speed of...

I feel like a total shit for forgetting to do this sooner, I was in a restless situation for the months I received a message from Tideless with a link to their awesome Sea of Tears. There are very few Doom/Death bands from the U.S.A. and fewer that catch my ear. Tideless has done it correctly, and I must say, precisely. Sea of Tears is a somber, unpredictable travel through the turbulent seas. Think an American version of the early works of Ahab, but with a lot more emotion...

Angelcorpse has always had a hold within the metal community. There are many splinters of Angelcorpse that are actively creating new, intense, music for our ears to consume including Perdition Temple, Blasphemic Cruelty, Abhomine, and of course.. KERASPHORUS. Kerasphorus’s two existing EPs ( Cloven Hoofs at the Holocaust of Dawn and Necronaut) have been compiled into one concise take down. This is something you need to get your grubby hands on. The intensity of...

Are you looking for a way to escape the searing heat of this unholy summer? No you do not need to purchase a new air conditioner, you need to listen to Dark Winter‘s frosty Grim Utterances! Reinvigorating the cult underground of the mechanically declined rustic Motor City is Dark Winter. The diabolic duo has released an amazing EP that does not beg of your approval with the usual cliches of over production and over dubbing, just raw elements contained inside. Dark...
