With a really strong demo already on their resume, Dias Xila Leurc, Amniac strike back with their debut album, Infinite, prepared to meet the expectations. The Greek band nicely blends together the sound and vibe of great post metal acts such as Neurosis and Isis, with a touch of the

All reviews written by Bruce Hardt except where noted. SIX: THE BANNER - Greying Here we have it. Finally, the long awaited, highly anticipated fourth full-length from NJHC veterans The Banner.

Italy’s Hierophant waste no time when it comes to following up their albums with further madness. 2013 saw the release of their second album, Great Mother: Holy Monster, with 2010 debuting their self-titled onslaught. With barely a year and a half gone by, Hierophant end 2014 with their third LP,

Underground movements, in particular, though, thrive on its members ability to communicate. Remove Bandcamp, Twitter, forums, message boards, Facebook and MySpace and one begins to wonder just how the hell

UK outfit DiE are literally no bullshit. This is a band of punks playing stripped-back hardcore in its finest form.  Kicking off in Brighton a few years ago with core members operating under the VEXED moniker, a parting of ways and a few new connections saw the rise of DiE

“Nesseria makes me feel like I’m listening to a tone down version of Full of Hell, because I’m so overwhelmed with noises and abrasive guitars, and it just makes me lose my mind”. Four years after their first LP and self-titled album Nesseria is back with Fractures, a frankly interesting

Straight from the slums of Essex come Turbochong and their utterly obnoxious debut EP Disrespectful, which is so perfectly named it’s ridiculous. Knowing that this band features various limbs, brains and vocal chords from the incestuous gene pool that has spawned Cease To Exist, Unloved and Cthulhu Youth and that
