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: Ingested – Where Only Gods May Tread 8 (Brutal Death)

Ingested are a band I’ve been following for a couple of years now, I’ve seen them grow from a grotesque little slam band to a more matured brutal death metal band. This transition was set in stone with their solid as hell 2018 record The Level Above Human. Last year they released a dark, cryptic little EP titled Call Of The Void, which even further perplexed me as to what their next move would be. I can confidently say this new album solidifies their place in the death metal scene and makes it abundantly clear why they’ve become so popular in recent years. […]

Album Review: Decrepid – Endless Sea Of Graves 9.5 (Death Metal)

I have had a massive hankering for some good old school death metal lately and Decrepid have heeded my call with this new album. With equal parts Incantation and 90’s influence and a spice all their own, Decrepid have put out one of the best death metal records I’ve had the pleasure of listening to this year. It’s grimy, cavernous, and dark, making for a potent old school blend that doesn’t feel forced or contrived. Also the album art is spectacular, which is always an added bonus. […]

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! […]

Metal Redux: Massacre – From Beyond (Death Metal)

So back in 1991 there was a gigantic ripple in the Death Metal scene. An album recorded at Morrisound Studios was released. It featured band members who had been in Death, and who were heavily affiliated with the Florida metal scene since the early 80s. Oh yeah, and the singer claimed to have invented the Death growl (or vokills, as Kam Lee called it). And the word on the street was that the music on the release was all written between 1984 and 1986 and the songs were well known in the local scene, and the band was infamous for a particular song about having sex with a corpse.
