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...

For those of you who do not know, Sarcófago is one of the most important Brazilian extreme metal bands to ever exist. Their pivotal album I.N.R.I. changed how black metal and death metal was presented, listened to, and viewed. Sarcófago is the pinnacle of extreme metal. Sarcófago‘s sick follow up album to I.N.R.I., Rotting, is being reissued, you should be interested, you should listen to this.   Greyhaze Records is proud to announce the 2016 reissue of...

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...

The Greek black metal scene is vast in terms of quantity and variety. The Greek black metal scene features many great bands including Astarte, Rotting Christ and Mortuary Drape. If you are familiar with those bands you know that the Greek black metal scene has a rich dynamic sound, not just a strict encompassing expectation. Geotic Equivalent is a stand out band of the entire scene. The Goetic Equivalent self-titled debut was released independently two years ago. Ordo MCM...

Upon viewing the name of the band, album, and album art, what is the first influential extreme metal band that pops in your head? Did you guess Metallica? Guess What? YOU ARE FUCKING RETARDED AND YOU NEED TO HIT THAT X IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER. Yes, Apokalyptic Raids is a full fledged Hellhammer worship band. Does that make them bad? Fuck No! If you have anything negative to say about this band it is because you wish you were the first person to come up with being a...

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...
