Album Review: Death. Void. Terror. – To The Great Monolith II 8 (Black/Doom)

I love finding metal records with a very unsettling atmosphere, something that’s dark and creepy to the point where it’s overbearing. One of the greatest examples of this in my opinion is Dragged Into Sunlight’s 2011 record “Hatred For Mankind.” A new entry to this fantastic set of records is the new Death. Void. Terror album titled To The Great Monolith II. […]

Album Review: Child Of Waste – Hunger Made Man 7.5 (Deathcore)

Deathcore is a very hit or miss genre, but when it hits, it hits hard. Some of my all time favorite metal records are of the deathcore genre. Chugcore is a pretty prominent underground core label that’s put out releases for some of the biggest modern names in the genre, like Shadow Of Intent, Vulvodynia, Within Destruction, and Acrania. I’ve decided to keep a closer eye on the label this year so I can get my core fill, and I’ve already found a gem! […]

Album Review: Krosis – A Memoir of Free Will 8 (Deathcore)

Hey guys, I’m back from my short break from Noob Heavy, and I’m coming back with a bang, and by a bang, I of course mean the new Krosis record! Krosis is a technical deathcore band that formed in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2014. On February 7th they are releasing their brand new record A Memoir Of Free Will on Unique Leader Records. As someone who had the privilege of hearing the record early, trust me when I say this isn’t one you’re going to want to miss. […]

Album Review: Abigail Williams – Walk Beyond The Dark 8.7 (Black Metal)

2019 has been a very interesting and unique year for music and my taste in general. I won’t go fully into my thoughts on the year, but one thing I’ve noticed is all the amazing releases dropping at the very tale end of the year. For example, one of the best goddamn black metal records of the year dropped last Friday. The record I’m speaking of is the new Abigail Williams outing, it has absolutely blown me away. […]

Micro Dose: Earth Eater – Immortal (Deathcore)

Earth Eater are a pretty eclectic deathcore group, they tackle several styles, but it all comes together very well. That is probably pulled off due to the overall talent of all the members here, everyone is obviously extremely proficient with their instruments. There are parts of this that sound like slamming deathcore, and technical deathcore, and even metalcore, the track “Longclaw” even brought in some classical instrumentation. It’s produced very well, it sounds immaculate.

Album Review: Scargzlot – Wolf’s Atonement 8 (Black Metal)

Here in the states and surrounding countries, winter is coming on. Hell, depending on where you are, you might already be getting the brunt of it. With winter comes changes, like the weather, and the holidays, and the very distinct difference in mood, atmosphere, and aesthetic. I find black metal to fit winter quite well, so naturally I jam a lot of black metal around this time of year. […]

Micro Dose: Munt – Towards Extinction (Black/Grind)

Munt sit in an extremely niche style of extreme metal, I niche I enjoy quite a lot. That is blackened deathgrind. The most easily recognizable example of this genre is probably Full Of Hell. It combines the raw intensity and speed of grind with the overbearing evil murky atmosphere of black metal.

The vocals here sound fucking ungodly dude. It’s these evil high pitched black metal screams that are just as sporadic and intense as the blasting drums. In true grind fashion this is ruthlessly heavy, not once does it let up. Definitely good stuff. […]

Micro Dose: Blackwater Burial – The Prison Of Belief (Tech Death)

Blackwater Burial have released a solid tech death record with crazy good musicianship. The guitar and bass work here is incredibly technical, but it never feels unnecessary or wanky, everything fits incredibly well. It’s mixed nicely so all the individual layers stand out nicely. The vocals are these low growls with a nice bit of clarity to them. They are brutal and very well performed, but i can make out a lot of the lyrics which is always appreciated. […]
