Album Reviews

Death metal veterans Obituary’s 11th album offers superior aesthetics for defining the style of Florida’s death metal at its finest. “Dying of Everything” will grind your bones to pieces, out via Relapse Records.

“劇變 (Jubian)” is an extreme and brutal death metal record that mixes classic grindcore and death metal elements, there are many bands today that seem to bring a form of classic nostalgia but Ripped To Shreds has found the right balance between these elements. Out via Relapse Records.

Made out of part Eternal Champion and part former Magic Circle comes Sumerlands’ sophomore on Relapse Records ‘Dreamkiller’ which sees these heavy metal warriors take on a more AOR oriented approach. So strap yourself into the Delorean, fire up the flux capacitor and head for the Sumerlands. They don’t have roads there.

Author & Punisher is back with yet another crushing album filled with inhuman soundscapes that are enhanced by newly found human touches!

Full of Hell’s latest outing on Relapse Records: ‘Garden of Burning Apparitions’. Hell never sounded so filthy.

‘Primordial Arcana’ sprawls with epic majesty and raw black metal that is beautifully woven with synth passages, soothing rhythm and arcane mystical poetry that grabs back to their roots.

The sludge heroes of Inter Arma put together a dedication to how they got started and show how exciting playing covers can be.

Sect of Vile Divinities gradually crushes and overwhelms the listener each track is textured with deep growls as for the riffs they keep the tone morbid and eerie.

Primitive Man emerges once more from his cave, armed with his third bludgeoning of doom, noise and sludge: ‘Immersion’.

2020 may have been a turd of a year so far, at least it provided synthrock duo, Zombi, with an apt title for its first album in 5 years.
