Album Reviews

Acephalix’s fourth album “Theothanatology” is a crunchy raw death metal record coated with grooves and solid riff craft. The about half an hour-long record bares many hints from bands like Vastum and Gatecreeper. Out via 20 Buck Spin.

Dream Unending’s sophomore ‘Song of Salvation’ retains its gloomy doom-death tone. The end result is a very sentimental and atmospheric album. Mournful and dark, the album is recommended for fans of Anathema, Pink Floyd and Evoken. Out via 20 Buck Spin.

Daeva’s first studio album “Through Sheer Will and Black Magic” is a must for fans of blackened thrash metal, the Philadelphia quartet managed to boast some adrenaline energetic riffing, if you are into bands like Bathory, Nifelheim and Aura Noir then you must check out this stellar release. Out via 20 Buck Spin.

Resonating with sepulchral melodies, Worm’s ‘Bluenothing’ is meticulously balanced between black doom and death/doom metal, demonstrating a natural transition into the dark ominous realms of symphonic black metal. Out via 20 Buck Spin.

Southern California indigenous death/doom metal trio Tzompantli’s first full-length album ‘Tlazcaltiliztli’ is a soul-crushing album, inspired by the likes of Disembowelment, Evoken and The Ruins of Beverast. The entirety of the album reflects on the ancient traditions of human sacrifice and epics of war that invoke the primordial roots of Native American cultural themes.

“Tide Turns Eternal” takes you on a voyage to astral plains beyond space and time.

Worm’s deep interpretation of death/doom will let you loose yourself to the creepy synth and the frothing rhythm.

“Apexapien” holds like a block of concrete by the cohesive force of the members who excelled in their ability to craft an energetic slab of technique and brutality.

“Deconsecrate” is a kind of album that will make you remember the good old days from the early nineties when there were abundant bands that played the aggressive style of melodic death metal.

‘Abhorrent Rapture’ conveys a pummeling approach to death metal and stand as one of the strongest acts in the genre.
