LOIA are Andrea, Camilla, and Stefano, and they come from Florence, Italy. LOIA will fuck you up. We’ve already been assaulted by this band’s vicious music in the past, and now these Italian hardcore sociopaths are back with a brand new album of raging, blacked-out hardcore that will fucking destroy your

The orange demons of Finland do not really need much of an introduction following the release of their 2013 full-length Valonielu. At the time Valonielu saw the band reaching, what was thought at the time, its peak. Taking a psychedelic twist on black metal, and with disregard to boundaries between

It might be the fear of a new world-order where we might have to call a racist and ignorant shitstick like Donald Trump “Mr. President,” I don’t really know. What I do know is that angry music is as healthy as ever, and just getting angrier. Lots of cool releases keep pouring

Appearing from seemingly nowhere, like the Word itself, Irkallian Oracle immediately drew an audience with 2013’s seismic debut Grave Ekstasis, a mammoth slab of trance-inducing death worship that only got better with additional listens. It was and is that kind of album, and this simply is that kind of band,

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

Literature has always been a figurehead in music, most notable the Bible, inspiring hundreds of thousands of musicians all over the world to produce whatever they see fit.

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

The depths of the Wastement, the rehearsal/recording space of acts such Oranssi Pazuzu, Dark Buddha Rising and Atomikyla, seem to be boundless. Another act has come to my attention that makes use of the same space, sharing some similarities with the aforementioned bands. They come with the perplexing name PH

Switzerland does not produce a plethora of metal acts, but the ones coming out of this country are generally very fucking good. Rorcal is such an example, with the band releasing its fourth album, Creon, to mark its ten year anniversary. Rorcal’s sound relies heavily on two pillars: their black metal
