Review: Gnaw Their Tongues – Abyss of Longing Throats

GNAW THEIR TONGUES Abyss Of Longing Throats COVERBeing new to the fabled one man act known as Gnaw Their Tongues, I approached this album with open ears and no expectations. What was to behold? What was to come? What was in store for me? Well as it turns out, this sampling of Gnaw Their Tongues known as Abyss of Longing Throats is an extreme case of black metal, doom metal, experimental metal and a slight case of industrial robotic atmosphere. Like wondering into an warehouse of rhythm, misanthropy and sickness…I plunge into this album head first.

Review: Myrkur – M

m_1500Myrkur is a folk based black metal act from a single woman (mostly) from New York City, but you’d swear she was from the actual Scandinavian lands from how heavily Nordic and authentic this sounds. Myrkur is a bi-polar experience of beauty/majesty and then darkness/evil. Myrkur also brings out the best of both worlds when it comes to folk based experimental ambient that is very true to the Scandinavian area as we as classic and modern black metal. She handles most of the music and can sing like Chelsea Wolfe then belt out throat shattering screams on par with Gorgoroth & Mayhem. The debut album M is powerful and pretty fucking neat.

Review: Infernal Execrator – Ad Infinitum Satanic Adherent

INFERNAL EXECRATOR - Ad Infinitum Satanic Adherent - coverWhen it comes to blackened death metal or black metal in general, there is and will never be a shortage of blasphemous, anti-religious and evil music. Infernal Execrator brings forth these reoccuring themes of darkness to their latest album: Ad Infinitum Satanic Adherent. This album is just massive evil black metal attack that touches upon what Marduk has been doing for years. The pummeling drum work sometimes overpowers the blazing riffs but they can still be heard for the most part. The quickness and quality of the song writing makes this a black metal release that demands your attention!

Immortal Bird – Empress/Abscess

immortal bird coverImmortal Bird have returned with new album and it’s another powerful punch just like their last one. Empress/Abscess is a blackened thrash melodic death metal punk something released on Broken Limb Records/Manatee Rampage Recordings and it’s a unique hybrid of sound that had me excited to sit down and give this a good listen. Well I am happy to report that this is just as heavy and just as fun as their last offering, but with this release I found that the band had a more mature execution and sound to them. They still experiment but they definitely have a sound that is theirs and it’s a damn good one. Immortal Bird are back!

Goatblood – Adoration of Blasphemy and War

GOATBLOOD - Adoration of Blasphemy and War - coverGoatblood is a blackened death metal band hailing from Germany! Like most good black metal bands, this particular act sticks with themes such as evil, devil worship and desecrating everything that is holy. Like most good death metal, they keep the music ultra heavy, fast and sinister. Goatblood care not about production and overly worked mastering, these guys just want to fuck you in the ass with a barbed inverted cross…..and laugh while doing it. Adoration of Blasphemy and War is their debut release and they are out for blood.
