Review: Fragments Of Unbecoming – Perdition Portal

Review: Fragments Of Unbecoming – Perdition Portal

I’ve never expected to buy, listen, or review another Fragments Of Unbecoming album. The band released three pretty cool death metal records in the early 2000s, but I’ve lost track of them after “Chapter III”. Now the band is back with “Perdition Portal”, which took […]

Review: Craft – White Noise And Black Metal

Review: Craft – White Noise And Black Metal

It took me a while ’til I managed to give “White Noise And Black Metal” a full spin. Craft took several years to write, create, and evolve their latest output, turning it into a dark and twisted piece of music. It’s one of those records […]

Turbonegro, we need to talk

Turbonegro, we need to talk

20 years ago, Turbonegro released “Apocalypse Dudes”. It’s a classic and undoubtely the best and most influential album of the norwegian punks. The following albums were kinda ok, but never came close to the level of chuzpe, charisma, and catchy songs. With the departure of […]

At The Gates lost me with “To Drink From The Night Itself”

At The Gates lost me with “To Drink From The Night Itself”

Make no mistake: I fucking love At The Gates. Their early works got me into Death Metal and I totally love “Slaugther Of The Soul”. When I had the chance to see them live and later to attend their fantastic, legendary show at Wacken 2008, […]

Review: Ur – Grey Wanderer

Review: Ur – Grey Wanderer

It took me a while to get back to writing reviews. In the end, having to write reviews was one of the reasons to quit working for other ‘zines. I want to write a review when I’m in the right mood, not when the records’ […]

What do Deez Nuts and Six Feet Under have in common?

What do Deez Nuts and Six Feet Under have in common?

Wait, what? Deez Nuts, the australian party animals, and Six Feet Under, the old and grumpy death metal dudes under the reign of former Cannibal Corpse-shouter Chris Barnes? Judging from their new releases – “Word Is Bond” and “Crypt Of The Dead” respectively – both […]

Review: Cruel Hand – The Negatives

Review: Cruel Hand – The Negatives

Cruel Hand needed four years to come up with a new album – and four years can be a long, challenging time for young adults and a band. “The Negatives” proves that a band can integrate new ideas, new influences, new role models, and yet still […]

Review: Sleepwave – Broken Compass

Review: Sleepwave – Broken Compass

Sleepwave is the new project of former Underoath singer Spencer Chamberlain, who wants to continue his career in the music industry after Underoath disbanded in 2013. The press sheet to “Broken Compass”, the debut album of his new project, somewhat implies that Chamberlain had many […]

Review: Sun Worship – Elder Giants

Review: Sun Worship – Elder Giants

Sun Worship are a succesful black metal outfit from Berlin… well, when one thinks in underground scales. Their “Elder Giants” album sees a repress on vinyl, this time on white vinyl and with the same fantastic production value that the first press offered. Let’s get […]

Review: Fjort – D’accord

Review: Fjort – D’accord

I finally bought “D’accord”, the new album by german harcore/ screamo outfit Fjort, on vinyl. It’s on clear vinyl, which is not my favourite vinyl version (calling it colour would be ill-fitting), but anyway. The production value is excellent and the cover art really nice, even […]
