Review: Darkend – The Canticle of Shadows

darkendWhen it comes to extreme music from Italy, you can expect it to be the epitome of that very word. It doesn’t matter if it is death metal, black metal or grind….the Italians know how to create some fine heavy music. This time around, it’s a black metal band known as Darkend. Their third full length album, The Canticle of Shadows, is the Fleshgod Apocalypse of their genre. Savage musicianship, layers of sound and instrumentation and foul screams cast out to shatter your skull. Darkend is a band you need to be listening to.

Review: Inanimate Existence – Calling From A Dream

ie_1500x1500Inanimate Existence is a progressive/technical death metal act from the Bay Area here in the United States. Their style and ambition as a prog/tech band is rather different from what you would expect from this style of death metal. While you’ll still be pushed to the limits with technicality and thoughtfulness of progressive song writing, Inanimate Existence’s style blossoms into it’s own in front of us with their new album, Calling From A Dream. Their last album, A Never-Ending Cycle of Atonement, was wildly expansive in itself and I honestly just bought that album to add to my collection just last week. So having that album fresh in my head and listening to this immediately after, I could hear just how much this band has grown with their writing and tone. Calling From A Dream is wonderful, heavy and…dare I say….pretty?

Review: Inquisition – Bloodshed Across the Empyrean Altar Beyond the Celestial Zenith

You know of Inquisition. Black metal . Some tried to make a controversy of them 2 years ago (massive eye roll). You may have heard of them before as one of the better Satanic black metal acts. Hell you may have only recently heard of them for the first time this year due to massive word of mouth. Bloodshed Across the Empyrean Altar Beyond the Celestial Zenith is one of those bands where runnerjma, wyattxhim and others have just been gushing about them. So much so that my bar was unfairly raised for them rather high. I’ll admit, this will be my first time listening to this band with a reviewer ear against the speakers. So let me listen and I will get back to you…

Review: Human Compost – From The Grave They Crawl

Canadian death metal act Human Compost releases their debut album From The Grave They Crawl and this album will be directed to those who like older styled death metal with huge chainsaw groove, blood sprayed vocals and horrific bass presence. Drums that pummel like a semi automatic weapon blasting your skull. This is the soundtrack to my death as I am resurrected in a putrid form of zombified terror and murder, rape and destroy everything in sight. Neat huh? It makes for a fantastic listen honestly.

Review: Cesspool of Corruption – Eradication of the Subservient

Cesspool of Corruption is a 4 piece death metal unit out of Dallas, Texas. Upon first listen, these cats have some damn good writing skills and their tone and overall execution definitely grabbed onto me very quickly. I just HAD to keep listening to this debut album. Very gripping musicianship across all instruments, good production levels and an overall enjoyment of vocals over the music just makes Eradication of the Subservient a must listen. Sure, there are only 5 songs on this debut release but there is a lot of musical substance here to enjoy.
