Metal and hardcore in Ireland rarely goes 12 months without releasing at least a couple of impressive records, and 2014 was no different, from new bands (Vircolac being the most recent) through to the old guard. Perhaps what is most interesting about several Irish records released this year, and the

SIX: THOU – Heathen Thou, in a relatively short space of time, have become a sort of doom metal royalty. Perhaps it’s because they have been unnaturally prolific throughout the years, churning out a couple of full-lengths but bridging the gaps with several EPs and splits each time. Not only

Labels: Throatruiner Ṙecords, Ruins Records & Deadlight Entertainment The image is a head bent backwards, with some choking – maybe some throat cutting – or maybe just a gentle caress, what do I know? This reminds me of their latest artwork for their EP Hoarder, this same position with a life-threatening

In this episode of Screams from the Gutter, we bring you some bitterness, some filth, some morbid introspection, some loss and a ton of gloom.  If these bands ended up in this series, it means three things mainly: 1) I’m clusterfucked with work and can’t for the life of me find

In the last Screams from the Gutter chapter dedicated to Italian bands I told you how one of those bands called HATE & MERDA had an imminent release coming out. So, that release finally came out, and holy fucking shit, it fucking rips shit up in unimaginable ways. In fact, it rips shit apart

1. ESCLAVO: Enslaved Esclavo‘s Enslaved tape was released in 2012 by Murder/Suicide Incidents, and it’s a fucking classic!!! I have only heard two songs and I can not get enough. When I hear this band, it makes me want to drop out of society and become an insect that could live

Perhaps it is because of the highly publicized pollution of Lake Cuyahoga where Akron, Ohio’s Fistula have emerged from, which results in this contaminated, disease-ridden release labeled Vermin Prolificus. On the altar for review this time around is a 7 song release; or more aptly, a late night, intoxicated walk through a

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

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,

Conviction, Passion, Spot on Aesthetic, A Keen Ear and Prolific are some of the words that come to my mind when I think of the Grimoire Cassette Cvlture label. When I listen to his roster of bands, I can not find one bad release. What I really dig about this

As wind-swept autumn hits its stride and with the icy fingers of winter waiting in the wings, it’s important to have a record to listen to that suits the seasons. A record that matches the bleakness of the winter months; captures the oppressive darkness that leaks in to your life

Hailing from Bethlehem, PA, Secret Cutter christened early 2014 with their sleeper hit of a self-titled debut LP. Their sole release following their 2009 EP, If You Don’t Hate Yourself You Aren’t Paying Attention, Secret Cutter drenches their songs in vicious, blood-churning sludge grind. The self-produced album was released all
