Interview: Emiel from Dauthuz (Death Metal)

My band Aeons Abyss has been part of a recent series on the Podcast, Straight to the Core, by our friend in the US, Matt Massacre, called “Death Metal Diaries – A 90s Death Metal Retrospective”. It’s a 4-part series where Paul O’Brien (our vocalist and the “Death Metal Poet”) and myself (along with Matt…

Interview: Rodrigo “Shakal” Loreto, from MOFO (Thrash Metal)

Since I’ve rekindled my music adventures with my Aussie Death Thrash band, Aeons Abyss, I’ve loved connecting with the underground metal scene, especially in Brazil. This country, most famous for its Football, in my books should be just as famous for its Metal. I’m proud to say that I now have many great friends and…

Interview: Herr Brummbar and Herr Hornad from Chainsword

Chainsword from Poland have just released a cracker of a Death Metal album in Blightmarch (27 Feb 2021 on Godz ov War Productions) and yes, the Bolt Thrower worship is present, but this album is still its own beast! I can’t wait for my CD to arrive, although it will be a while as its…

SPIRIT ADRIFT release new single “Astral Levitation”, off of new album “Enlightened In Eternity”, out October 16th

Here’s the details and a taste of the upcoming Spirit Adrift album, following their 2019 underground hit Divided By Darkness which caught the attention of many metalheads with it’s classic stylistic artwork by Joe Petagno. Newcomers prepared to be warmed by the classic Heavy Metal sound wrought with modern tones. There’s also details surrounding a 2021 European tour with Corrosion Of Conformity which is quite an interesting combination, both very classic bands in their sound but of different styles and aesthetics. I also wasn’t…

NAPALM DEATH announce new album “Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism”

Just a quick one before I go away for the weekend, as I know how many of you love Napalm Death. My relationship with them isn’t as tight as I’d like and this is another daily reminder that I need to take a deep dive into their work. I’ve heard a fair bit of their music and dig it, as well as the general message within, I just haven’t heard with much context or chronologically. Feel free to drop your favorite albums in the…

Album Review: Feculent – “The Grotesque Arena” 8/10 (Death Metal)

Releasing on March 19, The Grotesque Arena is the debut album from Brisbane’s own Feculent, one of a number of fantastic bands to come recently out of Australia. This could almost be called a supergroup, if that term meant anything these days, as it features a whole slew of great musicians that you might know from other bands: Matthew Budge of Resin Tomb, Siberian Hell Sounds, and Consumed on vocals, Kaleb Doherty of thrashers Idle Ruin on guitar, Jim Dandy of Descent on bass, and…

Album Review: Spire – “Temple Of Kronos” 8.5/10 (Avant Garde)

Last year I started following the Sentient Ruin Laboratories record label on social media. Fast forward to February of 2021 and they are just promoting the hell out of this new album from a band of which I had never heard. That band is the Australian duo Spire and the album is TEMPLE OF KHRONOS. Having enjoyed previous bands from this label like Shaidar Logoth and Novae Militiae, I FINALLY, almost reluctantly was like “Alright, fine. I’ll give it a listen. Stop taking up my…

Album Review: Khan – “Monsoons” 8/10 (Stoner/Prog)

Here I am, fumbling through the digital ether of Spotify again. Another day at work, another familiar album, another podcast. Tap, skip, scroll, skip, scroll. Then my little eye spies a dreary sky, with, wait, what is that? A melting planet amongst the clouds? Yup, sign me up. Tap. I’m instantly rewarded with a rubbery, chubby bass line sliding around under a shuffling drum groove. You got me guys. In chimes the guitar. I’ve found a chill place to let my mind float off through…

Album Review: Depravity – “Grand Malevolence” 9/10 (Death Metal)

Grand Malevolence is the death metal album I’ve been waiting for this year. Many have come and gone, some solid albums but even with Necrot and Ulcerate releasing huge albums I was still reserving my fandom for something specific and until now, undefined. It’s a big boy, with many five minute songs making up forty-nine minutes total but not a minute is wasted. Depravity are a machine that will keep force feeding you your own shit the whole time then at the end you’ll doff…

Album Review: Fumarole – “Valley Of Ten Thousand Smokes” 9/10 (Stoner Doom)

Brisbane’s Fumarole have been around since 2018. They dropped the “Mountain” EP in 2018 and have released 3 singles leading up to the ambitious concept album “ Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes”. The album was recorded and mixed by Scott French of Lovestreet Studios, Gold Coast. Mastered by Haldor Grunberg of Satanic Audio in Poland, this is a great sounding album that excellently captures the live prowess of the band and is dripping in classic stoner goodness. Got a light?
