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: Beleth – “Silent Genesis” 5.5/10 (Death/Groove)

During the death metal renaissance that’s been happening over the last couple of years it feels like a few other related styles have all but fallen by the wayside. Groove metal is one of these, with releases hitting here and there but all being overshadowed by a particularly strong stretch for the big brother subgenre. Maybe that’s due to a lack of notable new blood, or the fact that the titans of groove metal are all in their senior years in the scene now

Album Review: Dr Colossus – “I’m a Stupid Moron With an Ugly Face and A Big Butt and my Butt Smells and I Like to Kiss My Own Butt” 9/10 (Stoner Doom)

This is a big one for me, Dr Colossus have been my favorite Australian band since flooring me with The Dank in 2018. They combined good old Aussie stoner rock and stories told using The Simpsons.
