    Desolat – Elegance Is An Attitude…To Shit On LP (Bloodshed666 Records / Santa Diabla)

    After two outstanding extended play releases, such as Shareholder Of Shit and Songs of Love In The Age Of Anarchy, Austrian sludge/hardcore/crust group Desolat returns with a proper demonstration of power. Elegance Is An Attitude…To Shit On is their debut full-length album due for release on December 9th via Bloodshed666 Records and Santa Diabla Records.…

  • Drowse Streams “Three Faces (Cyanoacrylate)”

    Drowse Streams “Three Faces (Cyanoacrylate)”

    On Wane into It (out this Friday on The Flenser), Kyle Bates’s songwriting and production have never been more lucid; sounds flicker as he sings with fragile intensity. The record impressionistically distills loss, distance, mystery, prescription drugs, the preservation of memory via recording, and ambient anxiety through its titular act: to Wane into It, to disappear awaiting the next moon phase,…

  • Mourning Share New Single “Disenlightenment”

    Mourning Share New Single “Disenlightenment”

    UK metallic hardcore band Mourning have unleashed “Disenlightenment,” the title track from their upcoming album set for release November 15th on Streets of Hate. The song opens with a beastial blast beat leading way into doomy guitars before an all out assault of the band’s dark, mosh-fueled sound. Mourning’s mix of influences shine throughout the track and album,…

  • Plague Mass / World Between Us – Split 7″ (Noise Appeal Records)

    Plague Mass / World Between Us – Split 7″ (Noise Appeal Records)

    Now, it’s time to take back in time and revisit a couple of releases by one of the best bands that ever walked the underground scene. It’s a subjective statement, but it’s a fact. If you somehow missed the times when Plague Mass played live shows and released outstanding releases, maybe you could pay attention…

  • Heksebrann – Transcendence EP (Demons Run Amok Entertainment)

    Heksebrann – Transcendence EP (Demons Run Amok Entertainment)

    Here’s a brand new release from always prolific Demons Run Amok Entertainment. It’s the third release by Heksebrann, a heavy rock trio from Saxony. Previously, the group released a debut EP called The Hunt and a full-length named Spiritual Descending. It is my first time listening to their music, and I have to admit I…

  • Nekrodeus – Moloch LP (Grazil Records)

    Nekrodeus – Moloch LP (Grazil Records)

    Recently, I had a chance to write an article about Asbest, the latest full-length release by Nekrodeus. I was curious to listen to their previous recordings, so now it’s more than appropriate time to write something about Moloch, their first full-length album released on Grazil Records about four years ago. Nekrodeus also released the demo…

  • Tears Of Fire – Relics Of Ancient Love CS (Grazil Records)

    Tears Of Fire – Relics Of Ancient Love CS (Grazil Records)

    Let’s get back into some heavier music waters. Today, I will be talking about another release published by Grazil Records. Relics Of Ancient Love is the latest full-length album by Tears Of Fire, an international doom metal band based in Berlin, Germany. The group includes musicians from Germany, Iran, and Sweden, but that doesn’t stop…

  • V/A – Grazil Records & Friends Vol. 2. (Grazil Records)

    V/A – Grazil Records & Friends Vol. 2. (Grazil Records)

    Before the internet, samplers were a great way to hear new music, find out about new bands, and check out label activities. That way, you could handpick several bands and purchase their releases without wasting money on something you didn’t like. Sadly, the format lost in popularity with the rise of the mp3 era and…

  • Dispyt – Livsglädje 7″ (Elitbolaget)

    Dispyt – Livsglädje 7″ (Elitbolaget)

    A hefty package with releases ended up on our doorstep thanks to Elitbolaget. If you’re not familiar with this Finnish record label, you should pay attention to their roster. You’ll stumble upon everything from sludge metal to ultrafast hardcore punk and all over to skate punk sound. Still, the main focus is on extreme underground…

  • Momy Fortuna – Hexennacht

    Momy Fortuna – Hexennacht

    I have to admit I looked forward to listening to and writing about this particular release. There’s something eerie, strange, obscure about the appearance and sound of this group. Call it however you want, but the weird and unique sound is more than welcome on Thoughts Words Action. It comes as a desperately needed refreshment…

  • Enraged Monkeys – No Compromise CD (Hicktown Records)

    Enraged Monkeys – No Compromise CD (Hicktown Records)

    This band caught my attention even before I heard their debut single Leave The Sea. As a longtime fan of Planet Of The Apes movies, comics, books, and the entire franchise, I couldn’t avoid this band by any means. I was even more surprised no one ever considered this franchise for a possible visual/thematical aesthetics…

  • V/A – Grazil Records & Friends Vol. 1. (Grazil Records)

    V/A – Grazil Records & Friends Vol. 1. (Grazil Records)

    Back in the pre-digital era, various artists’ compilations and samplers acted as the crucial source for discovering fresh music. It was a convenient way to promote the latest singles, announce albums or introduce brand new artists/bands to the broader auditorium. Then the digital era commenced, and digital singles replaced regular 7″ records, compilations, and samplers.…
