“I really hate your face.” Those are the first lines that you hear coming from vocalist “Dixie” Dave Collins’ mouth, when “Processional” comes in. Goliathan, the fifth album from Weedeater, and their first to be released through Season of Mist, does not lack any of the humour that made this

Abyssal are now signed to Profound Lore Records, and there’s no shortage of evidence that justifies the signing. Abyssal raised more than a few eyebrows with their last two releases, Denouement, and Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius, which were landmarks in the short history of atmospheric blackened death metal.

When you think about it, it’s just amazing how many things Goatsnake managed to achieve in so little time. I am obviously talking about when the band just first got together. Formed initially with a stunning line up that included Greg Anderson of Sunn O))), Greg Rogers and Guy Pinhas

Hell’s Bells! Occult 45 is spanking my ear drums like I’m an old man in need of pedestrian pleasure, with a treasure trove of edible lingerie and torn stockings entitled Human Abhorrence. Quite unusual to hear a grind band with this unorthodox style. They mix a little hardcore and punk

Sometimes you get a split, with two bands each providing tracks for a release; and then every once in a while you get a collaboration where two bands fuse together, playing the same music and making shit escalate to alarming levels of heaviness. That’s what ABATON and VISCERA/// from Italy have brought you:

LUNCH is a damn good postpunk band from Portland, Oregon that, like a lot of the best bands in the postpunk scene nowadays, has a direct tie into the underground DIY hardcore/punk movement. PDX has especially been ahead of the curve in this regard, what with formerly hardcore bands like

Aidan Baker and Eric Quach, mainly of Nadja and thisquietarmy respectively, do not really need much of an introduction. Their activity on the experimental drone scene has been documented brilliantly by their numerous releases and collaborations through the years. Hypnodrone Ensemble is not even the first time that these two

Here is something unique and extremely intriguing that will delight both the fans of Cascadian black metal (WITTR, Addaura, Velnias, Agalloch, etc) and of eastern European-styled melodic black metal (Drudkh, Negura Bunget, Walknut etc.).
