Album Review: CATTLE DECAPITATION The Anthropocene Extinction

Posted by | August 7, 2015

The Anthropocene Extinction, in many ways is not so much a follow-up to a hugely successful album, but more like a continuation. The songwriting is still absolutely brilliant, with every song focusing on mind-melting speed, separate sections of different feels, and even a little bit of melody. And much like Monolith, where we were given so much more to chew than just straight-up death metal, Anthropocene gives us these similar flavors, and even a little more.

Album Review: UFOMAMMUT Ecate

Posted by | April 1, 2015

pace doom progenitors Ufomammut, perhaps cut off from the immediacy of scene influences due to their residence in the mountainous Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, eschew anything so literal, their own brand of "cosmic horror" manifesting through ominous drone and Hawkwind-informed synth textures acting like background radiation against the emerging and re-emerging sludge riffs that break through the still vacuum of the universe.

Album Review: REVOCATION Deathless

Posted by | October 8, 2014

This is Revocation's 5th full length album since 2008, and if we have learned anything from this trashy metal band, it's that Revocation loves to make music and knows how to do it properly. This Boston Massachusetts 4 piece must have a boundless amount of energy. Each album to date is intense, thoughtful, and unique, all while being without a doubt Revocation. This band has no qualms with their identity, or labels, they just make extremely good metal.
