All I wanted was some unreal Death Doom, and Victoria’s NOSTRUM new EP Painstaker has just given me my fix!!! Every moment of this project is sweet, decaying sonic agony to my morbid ears! I can’t believe how fucking awesome these three songs are, and I realized I want as many

This morning my homie and CVLT Nation writer Mattia turned me on to Artifact of Skulls, and within a diseased instant I was hooked! This band turns out some of the most vile/primitive/disgusting/raw death metal I have heard so far in 2016. I’m not surprised that Defiled Light is the label putting out

Vast shifts aren’t something we notice immediately, or ever, honestly. The earth spins and continents move, but we’re only aware because we’re told.

Back in 2014, we posted this article to our site about QRIXKUOR’s demo (which has since sold out of all four pressings!). Now they are back with one of the raddest death metal releases of 2016, entitled Three Devils Dance, via Invictus Productions on April 30th. QRIXKUOR creates the kind of death metal that swirls

Have you ever been disappointed by a side project of a band you truly loved and respected? I have, and it fucking sucked. Let’s be real for a minute – about 80% of side projects are merely clones of the original band they derived from. Before you all lose your

After a seven year absence, Erik Wunder has dragged Cobalt from the brink of the abyss and back into the sunlight of extreme metal. The highly anticipated new album, Slow Forever, will be released by the ever consistent purveyors of sonic filth, Profound Lore Records, on March 25th, 2016. This

I can feel death slowly creeping up on me in the form of the new INTO COFFIN LP entitled INTO A PYRAMID OF DOOM that will be released via our comrades over at Caligari Records. This band’s music sounds like a beast chained to the wall trying to break free so
