by zaxrecordreviews in Interviews 0

I’ve been listening to Tome: 1 a lot lately, and it’s just an outstanding listen, so I’m happy to have the opportunity to introduce you guys to this band! Today I’ll be talking with the band’s guitarist and vocalist, Elijah Cirricione! […]

Album Review: Aseitas – False Peace 8.1 (Prog Death)

After a couple of listens, I still couldn’t tell you everything that’s going on on this record. At an hour and eleven minutes long, this is the sort of beast that seems almost untouchable, but I’ll take a crack at it! Aseitas are a progressive death metal band based out of the United States, and this is their 2nd full length record. I mean progressive with a capital P too, this album is unlike anything I’ve ever heard purely based on how many different things they’ve put to use here. […]

Album Review: Earth Rot – Black Tide of Obscurity 9.8 (Black/Death)

I’m sort of angry that no one ever told me about this band before. It’s got everything I love and nothing I don’t. The album is tailor made to my music taste and I’ve been sitting around like a dumbass not even knowing this band existed. This record has easily made it up among my favorite extreme metal records this year and Earth Rot are finding a comfortable spot in my regular rotation. […]

Album Review: Ferus Din – The Great Dying 9 (Black Metal)

Ferus Din embody the destructive force of nature among other things in their debut album The Great Dying. This album hits like a fist in the face from the very first second and leaves one with a feeling of prolonged eagerness, typically as the music unfolds. The band’s name comes from a combination of Latin and Germanic translations and refers to “Wild Noise”. Completely unawares of the genre clashes in this release, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the band’s musical talent, particularly composition arrangement and the combining of different instruments and sounds.

Album Review: Vredensdal – The Tyrant Shade 7.7 (Black Metal)

Writing for Noob Heavy has brought me tons of exciting opportunities, from interviewing one of my favorite bands too receiving early releases for highly anticipated albums, but the first promo I ever got was from Vredensdal, a one-man raw black metal project from here in America. Vredensdal will always stand out in my mind for that reason, and I felt it was only appropriate to cover their new record titled The Tyrant Shade. […]

Doom Metal

2020 Albums

Album Review: Harbinger Of Storms – Talos EP 7 (Doom/Gothic)

Harbinger of Storms is the work of one-man bedroom producer Shane Edward Semler. “Talos” is the companion to his last EP release, “Jupiter”. Everything about this EP has a mythical quality to it. Always having a strong interest in mythology myself, I was sucked in by the cover art. A huge winged automaton towers over a scene of fleeing livestock and peasants. Guarding them? Or poised to wreak havoc? Defined as Epic Doom Metal, I’m hoping for havoc and impending doom. […]

Album Review: Void Rot – Descending Pillars 8 (Death Doom)

A pinch on the arse this record is, a solid helping of death doom with an emphasis on the death. I’ve been waiting for this one, waiting. Unfortunately for the rest of you rubes, September is when you’ll be hearing this beast in its entirety. I’d go ahead and call this a safe bet for pre-order, not only does it sound good but you can gauge your expectations by checking out their previous output, a Void Rot/Atavisma split out earlier in 2020 via Everlasting Spew. That split set a tone that I wanted more of, and here it is! […]
