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...

I talked about this album last year when it was only available on cassette, I just discovered that this kick ass album hit Spotify recently. I do not know when it hit because I have a copy of the tape… That news is not all. It seems as though Sepulcher also released a CD copy of Mausoleum Tapestry as well. Check out my little write up of Mausoleum Tapestry here, and check out the album below. You need to buy...

Debatably the most unpredictable, alternatively experimental,of popular metal bands is Faith No More. They never followed the rules of any era, and usually become the sand beneath the foundation. Here they are with the new video for the song “Cone of Shame”. Faith No More has always made bizarre videos that follow the ethos of the bizarre Mike Patton, but this one is just surreal and a piece of art like a David Lynch flick. “Cone of Shame” is a track...

Berserker Fest III at the Masonic Temple in Detroit Michigan is where I first witnessed the power of Tombstalker. As they played the raw third stage along side the likes of Detroit’s Isenblåst and Perversion, I was left wondering how did this crazy band get billed on this show. I figured with their unique blend of black thrash with tinges of death metal that they had to be from Europe as their sound is a descendant of the bloodline of Swedish and U.K. masters....

Aweeeeeee yeahhhh (pun intended) this is the good shit right here. Dark chaotic progessive black metal. Though this full length album consists of only 3 songs, the length of the tracks makes up for small track list, with each track ranging from 15-20 minutes. This isn’t your copy/paste style black metal, these guys switch riffs and tempos pretty frequently, often using a various different drumbeats and riffing styles outside of the traditional black metal. This keeps...

Iceland’s Abominor’s EP Opus: Decay is a two track, 21:29 minute  descent into a hellish abyss. Abominor has been around since 2008, released a four track demo in 2010, and finally released the Opus: Decay EP in 2015. This is an excellent short but sweet EP for black metal fans. The two tracks have a totally independent sound that is distinct from the other. The opening track “474” is an unrelenting dystopia of blastbeats and anger that lasts for 12...
