Reviews: Sabbatory, Icon of Evil, Saliva, Sarcofago & Terminal Death

sabbatorySabbatory – “Endless Asphyxiating Gloom”. Sabbatory gives us a basic yet thrilling headbanger of a death metal album. The band promotes heavy moshing and drinking with their riffing and the result is an annihilation of your ears as well as your neck. 3 out of 5

Review: Decembre Noir – A Discouraged Believer

decembre noirWhen good death metal and melancholic doom metal meet, you usually get a damn good sound and an emotionally great result out of not only the vocalist but the music as well. Decembre Noir does not disappoint on this front as the music on “A Discouraged Believer” is as sorrowful as Woods of Ypres’ latest release. Instead of baritone singing though, we get low end raspy death metal growling and it’s a dreadful kick in the balls…..yet you’ll love every single bit of it.

Review: Whitechapel – Our Endless War

whitechapelThe disgustingly heavy deathcore band from Tennessee is back with another album of sheer anger, brutality and harsh tone. The bands recent few releases kind of showed the band heading toward a different direction as they experimented with their sound and song writing but Our Endless War is the proper release that should have followed A New Age of Corruption. Our Endless War is gripping, relentless and will make you head bang incredibly hard.

Review: Carnifex – Die Without Hope

Carnifex-Die-Without-HopeIn a world where good deathcore is a rarity and usually the churned out djent chugs out sell more and more good bands each day, Carnifex comes back and let us know once again what quality deathcore is.

Simply brutal.

Review: The Kennedy Veil – Trinity of Falsehood

TKV_COVER_NOPIXELATION_FULLRESThe Kennedy Veil released a new album on Unique Leader Records in January called ‘Trinity of Falsehood’ and it’s a stellar album in terms of catchiness, brutality and overall enjoyment. Their attack is similar to Aborted in how each instrument is doing one million things at once but maintain and overall headbanging groove through the album. Long story short, I dig the shit out of this.

Album Review: Narcotic Wasteland

Narcotic+Wasteland++bandWant some incredible metal that is led by a veteran of incredible metal? Dallas Toler-Wade, that’s right…the beautiful bald bastard from NILE, pilots the crushing Narcotic Wasteland album jet that comes flying into our ears, kamikaze style. A familiar sound of heavy music that takes on lyrical themes about drug and alcohol abuse? Fuck yes.
