Exclusive Stream & Review: Liminal – Fugue

coverHey there! Man do I have something late 2016 special to share with you guys. If you feel like this year was lacking in atmospheric doom mixed with black and death metal then you are right. If you wish before you make your “best of 2016” list you had one more album to listen to that could ‘wow’ you then I think I may have found the right band for you. Liminal hails from Finland, not a place where you would expect this style of music. When I think of Finland, I think of folk metal or melodic death metal. However, the music found on Fugue is nothing like that. This is wretchedly thick, layered with groove, dissonance and atmosphere. This style of blackened death doom is what I needed in my life.

Exclusive Stream & Review: DEVAST – Apocalyptic Human Extinction

ghp042-devast-apocalyptic-human-extinctionArgentina…probably one of the last places on Earth you’d expect to hear exquisite brutal death metal. Devast makes this happen with their 3rd studio album, Apocalyptic Human Extinction! Their hyper finger twisting riffs and leads shred and devour on every song on this album. I wasn’t expecting such technicality as well as devastating groove found in between the chaos. Some of these riffs will make you headbang and holy shit you are guaranteed to hurt yourself if you’re not careful.

Review: KORN – The Serenity of Suffering

korn-the_serenity_of_suffering-album_coverI’ve been an avid fan of Korn since 1999 when I was introduced to them with the album “Follow The Leader”. Since then it’s been a steady ride of similar tracks, depressing lyrics and heavy guitar riffs….until Head (Brian Welch) left the band. Soon afterwards, their sound changed for the experimental while barely grasping at the sounds that made them who they were, even dipping into dubstep for an album. Then Head returns to the fray and things are looking up for Korn. “The Paradigm Shift” was a slight return to form with a couple of songs but they had yet to fully find themselves and the sound that I could enjoy again. I haven’t truly been into a Korn album since “Take A Look Into The Mirror”, which was the last album Brian Welch was on before his departure. 13 years later, we get “The Serenity of Suffering“, a proper follow up to the album. This safely fits into their heavy discography, blending what they have evoled into and utilizing past riff techniques….Korn sounds like Korn once again.

Review: ANAL TRUMP – That Makes Me Smart!

a0644174335_10Anal Trump brings you their hilarious debut album that may be the best grind album of 2016, even though it’s a jab/joke release of god damn fast grind and screams. Travis Trump (Fans of Cattle Decap will enjoy) belches, screams and grunts his way through these 30 tracks while Rob Trump handles all of the musical aspects of it. Honestly, I am already 3 listens deep into this (and counting, it only lasts a few minutes) and it’s actually really heavy hitting, well written, satirical and educational release of extreme music. Personal politics aside, this just shows the world what we’re dealing with from another perspective. Disgustingly brilliant grindcore.

Review: SUPERJOINT – Caught Up In The Gears Of The Application

superjoint_lp3_lp_cover_color_review13 years…..13 long years since I have had a new Superjoint (NAME CHANGED DUE TO LEGAL REASONS) album. I’ve since jammed “Use Once and Destroy” and “A Lethal Dose of American Hatred” so much I should probably be ashamed of myself but I have always loved the heavy riffing, southern comfort groove and Anselmo’s fine tuned screams over these uniquely written songs. Now we get a new Superjoint album called Caught Up in the Gears of the Application and right away I am filled with excitement, anticipation and hope that I get the same fulfillment that I got from the previous 2 albums. The result of a few listens is a mixed bag of good and bad. Continue reading “Review: SUPERJOINT – Caught Up In The Gears Of The Application”

Review: Boreworm – Entomophobia

entomophobia_cover1Very little is known about Boreworm…..a progressively powerful death metal band from Michigan. Entomophobia is the band’s sophomore EP and they deliver a brand of death that isn’t like anything I have heard before. They bring a wall of sound with them that is pure death, atmospheric horror, melodic and just crushing with amazing production and musicianship. The band is independently releasing this bad boy and right out of the gate I have to recommend that you listen to this one. Let me tell you why.
