Interview: Witnesses (Doom Metal, New York)

Witnesses is a doom metal solo project that recently dropped their new record Doom II, which you might remember me reviewing a little while back.

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.

Album Review: Aversions Crown – Hell Will Come For Us All 7.5 (Tech Deathcore)

Aversions Crown is one of the bigger modern bands of Australia, among titans like Psycroptic and Disentomb. Much the same as those bands, it’s usually a good few year wait between albums so Hell Will Come For Us All is a much welcomed release to fans of sci-fi death. At the very least, there are many improvements over their 2017 album Xenocide. Gotta love the Burke work though.

Warrior Within are a thrash metal band from Queensland, specifically the Sunshine Coast, where the good beaches are.

The band has gained new members since 2016 and 2017 leading to the recording of several EPs which can be heard below.

Album Review: Graveir – Kings of the Silent World 8 (Black Metal)

Ever since bands like Venom, Bathory, and Celtic Frost pioneered the genre of black metal, there have been many variations of the genre that have arisen with unique characteristics. Despite this, most variations have maintained vital characteristics that remain part of the core of black metal. One of these characteristics is bleakness.
