VULTURE Ghastly Waves & Battered Graves

Here we have the second full length of Deutsch speed metal lunatics Vulture entitled Ghastly Waves & Battered Graves, and I must say at the very beginning that I am happy to see this band on Metal Blade who picked up this hot name to give them recognition they rightfully deserve. Vulture is relatively new…

KULL Exile

If you ever wondered how the next studio album of mighty Bal-Sagoth could sound I guess that Kull is the answer. Well, the debut album from bothers Maudling (who stands actually behind the music of Bal-Sagoth) actually sounds like the second part of ”The Chthonic Chronicles”.

ARCH/MATHEOS Winter Ethereal

Not only the band itself is on the creative upswing, culminating with their best album in years entitled Theories of Flight, but they have also resurrected the legendary John Arch to celebrate live their immortal album Awaken the Guardian.…

POSSESSED Revelations of Oblivion

I have to admit at the very beginning that this will be one very hard review to write. Why? Because I fucking worship Possessed, that is why! Their debut album Seven Churches was one of my very first extreme metal records back in the day, the one that started it all for me along with…

Pushing the boundaries of Viking black metal for almost three decades, yet Enslaved got far bigger accolades for doing the similar…

KETZER Cloud Collider

German heretics Ketzer are back with their fourth album aptly titled Cloud Collider, which will mark somewhat return to form after very weird spot in their career.

ANTROPOMORPHIA Merciless Savagery

Same as Exumer, here we have the band that has reunited after the initial short run and now they are on their 3rd full length after their second start but Antropomorphia is more vile and diabolical beast that those German old thrashers. These Dutch hate mongers have always been up to creating the most evil…
