Label: BLUTIGE MAGIE If you paid close attention to Maryland Deathfest this year, you would have noticed that part of the incredible setlist with Incantation, Disma and Funerus was the band Gath Smane. They have since released a two song tape called Transmuted Marrow that is now sold out, but is

Newsflash: CVLT Nation writer Al Necro found dead in a moshpit! Seriously, Al Necro’s fine. But Unsacred’s False Light has got Al Necro moshpit-starved from the get-go, and from that point on, there was no turning back. False Light is THAT underground album you can brag about to friends who’ve

Ten years from now, you’ll discuss this album with your friends and they will say: “what, that album that almost fucking killed me?” And you will reply: “yes, that crushing motherfucker right there.” In fact, Usnea‘s heaviness is no mystery, and their music seems to have a timelessness that will

It’s would be hard to imagine wrapping your head around a full album’s worth of the weirdness this bunch of Providence, Rhode Island punks have dished out on the Amyl Banshee e.p. This is not the first rodeo rodeo for Cottaging, as they share members with Ukiah Drag, Libyans, Cult

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

For those of you who’ve never heard of Arizmenda, the members of the band are part of the Black Twilight Circle, a  movement in Southern California that wish to distinguish themselves from the rest of the black metal scene. Black Twilight Circle is comprised of mysterious entities active in the

I just fucking love psychedelic stoner rock. It is so much fun listening to albums that are heavy, trippy and have a fair bit of improvisation in there to make things a bit more interesting. And that is exactly the deal with Craang from Greece. The very moment I glanced

Full of Hell has come a long way. Their debut album, Roots of Earth Are Consuming My Home, has remained a personal favorite since it’s 2011 release. Their followup, Rudiments of Mutilation, was a noise-punk masterpiece, despite it not capturing the same fervor of their debut. Around and between these

Hey metal bruthas! Al Necro here. Where it’s at? Boom-Boom-Pop. Where it’s at? Boom-Boom-Pop. Dark Descent Records, dudes. It’s been quite a banner year for Dark Descent. The latest in a fine slew of releases being Dire Omen’s Wrestling the Revelation Of Futility. Underground death metal fans should have heard

One could say it was either Today Is The Day or Neurosis who started what we could call avant-garde metal, but I will say Today Is The Day and Today Is The Day only. Neurosis were fed up with metal and rock both at the time “Souls At Zero” was finished,

Having unleashed unspeakable doom upon the world once already this year with their multidimensional Spectralbeastiaries EP, 11Paranoias have wasted no time in returning to their unearthly abode to record their debut full-length. Rather than choosing to escape their proverbial pitch black basement along with its insidious evocations, the entrancing trio instead

One of underrated label Daemon Worship Productions’ more accomplished bands is Svartidaudi. I’ve been following this band since the release of their impressive album, Flesh Cathedral, and this two-song EP entitled The Synthesis of Whore and Beast finds this orthodox black metal band continuing that trend of quality output. Many
