Do you really need us to tell you what this split is all about and why it’s so fucking huge and memorable? What else is there left to say about two of the currently heaviest bands on the planet? At this point, Primitive Man aren’t even just an underground band

Skáphe’s demo in 2014 proved to be a tantalizing sneak peek into what this band has morphed into – a monster. Consequently, their debut full-length album, Skáphe², is every bit of a monster record we all anticipated it would end up being. Put this on the short-list of best metal

Wolvserpent tread the path of darkness throughout the epic notations of Aporia:Kāla:Ananta, a single track spanning forty minutes of lush violin, doomed elegance and shadowed passages. Brittany McConnell and Blake K. Green recorded the work after the release of Perigaea Antahkarana in 2013, although seemingly it was written long before

The Body is one of my favorite active bands at the moment and has been for the past several years, primarily because of their uncanny ability to completely alter the atmosphere of any setting through their music. The vile aural sickness that they produce is packed with so much dense

Seven Sisters of Sleep have earned and deserved every second of their triumphant ascension to the heavens of prime-cut US sludge metal.

Defecrator hails from sunny California, but you wouldn’t come to that conclusion after hearing the band’s recent salvo care of Transylvanian Tapes, called Tales of Defecration. Fans of heavy music will like this four-track terror on cassette tape. The guitars are shoved way upfront and the mix is raw. Defecrator

Okay CVLT Nation fans, friends and family, time to take a seat for what is surely going to be a highlight in your music/audio consumption of early 2016. Relentless, primal, furious, and yes, bestial (as stated in our premiere of the first track “No Beyond” a few weeks back) are

The end of the year is always a tricky time for a band to release an album. Most people, bloggers and journalists and internet junkies, have already compiled their year end lists. The massive, thunder-from-the-heavens type of releases have already hit, their aftershock still being discussed, dissected and ranked. Even
