CREATURE

Hound

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Grey Ghost Records, 2019)

Fuck yes, this is just what I needed; a new EP by one of my favorite British thrash-infused hardcore/grind metal bands! I am of course referring to the Birmingham-based Creature and the utterly fierce (and appropriately titled) ”Hound” EP that was unleashed just a few weeks ago.  The previous output by ...

MARA

Rök

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Immortal Frost Productions, 2019)

Mara hail from the frostbitten shores of Sweden and dabble in aggressive pagan black metal with a strong presence of rawness to it that harkens back to the early-to-mid 90s. In addition, there a numerous passages that are slightly more earthy and pagan-like to be found on the disc too. Musically, ...

FROSTMOON ECLIPSE

Worse Weather to Come

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Immortal Frost Productions, 2019)

Morose Italian black metal mongers Frostmoon Eclipe have been a tad hit or miss for yours truly ever since the ensemble spat forth its first few demos and whatnot twenty-something years ago. However, this brand new effort of theirs, which is appropriately entitled “Worse Weather to Come”, is something else entirely ...

MARTIN POPOFF

Sensitive to Light - The Rainbow Story

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Power Chord Press, 2019)

Author Martin Popoff hardly needs any introduction as he has written numerous (and important) books on all things hard rock and heavy metal for years now, and his reflections on and insights into the music that you and I love and cherish so much are often quite brilliant and thought-provoking. The ...

RIMFROST

Expedition: Darkness

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Ferocious Records, 2019)

The Swedish horde Rimfrost have been churning out melodic and thrash-inspired black metal for quite a few years now and this brand new offering of theirs represents yet another solid and catchy slab of epic metal. With its rather prominent parallels to outfits such as Immortal and Tyrann (and perhaps even ...

PISSED REGARDLESS

Imperial Cult

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Creator-Destructor Records, 2019)

Crossover/thrash metal hybrids a'la Suicidal Tendencies can be a pain to review and this San Francisco Bay Area quitet was no different on their unremarkable EP "Feed The Birds". This is why "Imperial Cult" is such a jawdropping surprise, balancing Darkest Hour's melodicism and feeling against brute force of Slayer. Pissed ...

KONKHRA

Alpha And The Omega

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Hammerheart Records, 2019)

In the early 90s, thrash/groove, spearheaded by Exhorder, Pantera and Machine Head, stood up to the sudden grunge/alternative tsunami, and later to nu metal and metalcore. Some adapted to stay popular but others, such as this Danish quartet Konkhra refused the change. Their 7th full length finds them doing very well ...

Costin Chioreanu & Sofia Sarri

Afterlife Romance

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Dark Essence Records, 2019)

“Afterlife Romance” by the skilled duo that is Costin Chioreanu and Sofia Sarri is an unusual albeit interesting release that falls somewhere between pulsating goth rock and avantgarde music. In many ways, it sounds as if Costin and Sofia are as inspired by The Cure and Bauhaus as they are by ...

COFFIN ROT

A Monument To The Dead

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Blood Harvest/Rotted Life Records, 2019)

In 1986, Slayer pioneered a new unique sound, thrash in death's convention, the sound countless emulators capitalized on later, the sound Slayer themselves lost, in 1998. With their debut album, this Oregonian quartet showcase compelling potential to resurrect the sound Slayer themselves vainly tried to regain until their recent wrap up. ...
