Undergang – Misantropologi Review

Danish filth monsters, Undergang, have spent years churning out their disgusting brand of death metal. So disgusting that they will eventually themselves the title of a sub-sub-sub-genre like “reek-core” or “stench-grind” or “filth-jizz.” You know, something

Goatwhore – Vengeful Ascension Review

In the music review world, there is no more backhanded of a compliment than “I bet this stuff kills live”. Translation: this album sucks in at least seven of the ten ways there is for

Divine Element – Thaurachs Of Borsu Review

Music dorks (hi, hello, how are you) love to dissect, analyze, and compartmentalize. We like classifications and rankings and comparisons and counterfactuals, all of it pursued with the bloodless extravagance of a calmly corpsepainted Carolus

One of life’s rules of thumb: No one really cares about your dreams, particularly the ones you think are “really fucked up.” Those nightmares are made-to-order for you and you alone – carefully crafted by

Necrot – Blood Offerings Review

I’m not sure what you, dear reader, want out of your heavy metal, but I’m in this for the riffs. To me, good riffs are the foundation of good heavy metal. What makes a riff

Suffocation – Of The Dark Light Review

In his review of Suffocation’s previous album, 2013’s world-crushing Pinnacle Of Bedlam, my erstwhile compatriot Zach Duvall posited the half-in-jest idea of The Mullen-Hobbs Code, the qualitative phenomenon by which every odd-numbered Suffocation album is
