Album Review: Body Void/Keeper Split 9 (Death Sludge)

I always enjoy a good split. There’s so much you can do with them, whether it’s two completely different bands, a consistent theme or some esoteric experiment. My expectations take a back seat with these kinds of releases and the ride I’ve received on this Body Void/Keeper split is something else. The surprise is the best you can hope for with a split. If you loved the earlier work of either of these bands then the vinyl and tape releases are a no brainer, you don’t even need a preview. It’s raw and sincere sonic mayhem. […]

Album Review: Body Void – You Will Know The Fear You Forced Upon Us 8.2 (Sludge)

This band does not fuck around. This EP immediately starts off with a shitblast to the face in the first millisecond. If I had to describe Body Void in one word it would: Harsh. This is some of the darkest shit to come out this year and it never lets up throughout the record. It often sounds like someone being beaten on the ground by a group of people wearing dirty jackets. Considering their lyrics, it essentially is that. […]

Album Review: Cyttorak – Underdark Invasion From Beyond The Shadow Of The Warp 8.9 (Sludge)

Man this album is heavy slick with blackened sludge. It’s fucking nasty. This is the true cosmic terror, most science fiction themed metal bands go the prog kind of stoner route or death metal. Cyttorak goes for a way more abrasive and destructive take on the theme, the true cosmic horror and soul crushing truths. The psychedelic melody comes in the shape of fuzzy ass feedback that work beautifully in the muddy mixing and primal performance. I was very happy to get this one on tape. […]
