At War – Infidel

On the cover we have a cross beween Cap’n America and He-Man flexing his guns in front of the numberless terrorist legions. You think this is politically charged? Actually not, At War only insist that the threat of Islamic extremism be stanched by all freedom loving people. After an almost twenty year hiatus, this fearsome […]

Bloodshedd -Spare No One

Already considered one of the leading bands in the Philippines’ fledgling metal scene, Bloodshedd welcome 2010 with a furious new opus that continues where their grim 2007 debut “Eye of the Pessimist” left off. Always and forever a battlescarred death metal unit, “Spare No One” has the quintet flirting with other genres outside metal for […]

Decadence – Chargepoint

What Swedish melodic thrashers Decadence have to offer besides a knockout female growler fronting the group is a brand of unadulterated thrash metal that delivers on all fronts: relentless decibels, hyper charged tempoes, endless riffs, surgically precise percussion, and lots of hideous vocals from an attractive woman. Come to think of it, these guys are […]

Be’lakor – Stone’s Reach

Be’lakor. You shrug your shoulders and scratch your noggin’, ignorant of what the name means. The fantastic cover art is little help either, giving no clues as to what awaits inside. It could be epic, fantasy-inspired, black metal-ish, and aggressive. A musical chameleon you’re compelled to investigate. Once it’s inside your CD player, what arrives […]

Neglektum Interview by Hail und Kill

Science has proven beyond any doubt that frosty countries like those in Scandinavia are ideal breeding ground for the Black Metal fungus.

The Fall of the Heretic Interview by Hail und Kill

If the music industry were a forest, the big labels would be the trees while the independent solo artists are the mushrooms proliferating underneath the foliage. Funny analogy, eh? Not so funny after you read about this guy behind The Fall of the Heretic. His name’s Chad Nottingham and it’s a strange, winding path he […]

Exmortus – In Hatred’s Flame

Halfway through 2008 CE, Exmortus comes roaring to life with a debut album that incinerates everyone’s expectations for a staid death metal release. Playing a chaotic blend of the extreme stuff injected with rapid fire decibels, a little melody, and enough guitar solos to challenge power metal stalwarts Dragonforce in the wankery league, “In Hatred’s […]

Facinora – Born in Fear

Since it has been scientifically proven that kids between the ages of 12 and 21 love thrash metal, this sparkling demo from Brazil’s Facinora won’t surprise anyone, won’t it? Coming from two guys barely out of their teens, the four songs here reflect a musical education steeped in Bay Area legends and Slayer, Slayer, Slayer. […]

Pulsating Anus – demo/ self-titled

As sure as metal will never run out of cookie cutter clones who glut every scene, there won’t be a shortage of idiot musicians any time soon. It’s like a law of nature that has become more relevant in a world defined by social networking and democratized music. But between the clones and idiocy, it’s […]
