Below - Upon a Pale Horse

Review: Below – Upon A Pale Horse

Doom metal according to Wikipedia: “Doom metal is an extreme style of heavy metal music that typically uses slower tempos, low-tuned guitars and a much “thicker” or “heavier” sound than other metal genres.” Most of us know not to take things off the internet as gospel, but that as a description is pretty damn close when taking into account a ...

Wednesday 13 - Condolences

Review: Wednesday 13 – Condolences

Joseph Poole, aka Wednesday 13 has created a new album that is as far removed from his previous punk-rock work and comedic spin-off song covers as you can get. If you’re looking for ‘Morgue Than Words’, then you’ve come to the wrong place, but there are certainly ‘Bad Things’ here. This is a far darker and more sinister body of ...

Fire From The Gods - Narrative Retold - Album Cover

Fire from the Gods – Narrative Retold

Fire from the Gods is a name I didn’t know of until I found it getting mentioned on the side of some of other news about an extremely known person doing their first production of an album. It brought some intrigue but nothing that really sat in my mind as a must check out simply because the band that person ...

The Darkhorse – The Carcass of the Sun will Sleep

Review: The Darkhorse – The Carcass of the Sun will Sleep

Back in 2014, I was having a blast at Bloodstock as I always do, a 3-day hangover usually started by a night of serious liver abuse in Brewdog Birmingham the day before hand, and reliably topped up during the festival. The weekend would never work out well though if it wasn’t thanks to the regular cups of tea over at ...

Sertraline - Guilty

Review: Sertraline – Guilty

The name Sertraline for anyone like myself that has had to take the drug will know it lightens mood and literally pulls you out of depression, and so Sertraline has been good for me, so it is quite an honour to be able to review a band with such a positive name for starters. The band now have a new ...

Fueled Hate - March of the Pigs

Review: Fueled Hate – March of the Pigs

Not only do they have a great name, they also have an amazing eye-catching cover for their new album March of the Pigs. Dirty metal most definitely describes Fueled Hate to a T. I love the rapping vocals that are mean and harsh, punchy riffs and solid rhythms backing them up. It’s definitely easy to love Fueled Hate and the chaos ...

Review: Exist Immortal – Breathe

Sometimes, the right band comes along at just the right time. I was listening to Textures when Exist Immortal’s latest offering appeared in my inbox; I was in the mood for something like Textures that wasn’t Textures – Breathe is exactly what I was looking for. The UK-based, five-piece metal-band have been around since 2011 and Breathe (2016) is their ...
