Hailing from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, much like another thrash gem by the name of Morbid Saint, Toxic Ruin is here with Subterranean Terror. Like thrashing lightning storm Subterranean Terror by Toxic Ruin is a bolt of swift thrash sent from the speed demon gods themselves. Released two months ago, I am just now hearing this band for the first time as I am writing this. This is some damn good thrash. From “Submerged in Chaos” to the self titled track “Toxic...

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...

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...
