Album Reviews

Vacuous’ first studio album ‘Dreams of Dysphoria’ explores the vast spectral side of atmospheric death metal. Out via Me Saco Un Ojo Records (Vinyl) and Dark Descent Records (CD) since October 14th.

Cryptworm on its full length album “Spewing Mephitic Putridity” managed to sum up the putrid styles of the Finnish masters Demilich, and the guttural nuances of Undergang.

On ‘Torn Arteries’ Carcass takes us on a tour de force cycle of their musical evolution from old school death metal grindcore to technical melodeath.

‘To the End’ is a powerful and consistent album. The whole performance sounds quite coherent. The song structure is seemingly collective with the constant elements of aggression and groove infused into the music.

On ‘Scriptures’ you should expect nothing but a groundbreaking performance and for this reason, Benediction’s latest record is inflated with that nostalgic old spirit.

This actually shows a different prospect of how Strigoi was formed, this is yet another vessel where Gregor Mackintosh exposes his creativity and talent.

Memoriam has delivered a powerful record and they are in the process to write their own legacy.
