Arsis: “Visitant” Album Review

For most metalheads, fall – particularly October and November – is the most glorious time of the year whereby we pay homage to the horror genre that we all know is closely linked to heavy metal. Virginia Beach based technical melodic death metal band Arsis capture the passion for horror on their sixth album, Visitant. As quoted by guitarist/vocalist James

The Order Of Apollyon: “Moriah” Album Review

Sometimes the joy of doing a lot of metal reviews is the continuous journey. It leads to the discovery of new bands, different genres and subgenres and different areas of the world. This, of course, results in sleep deprivation and a losing battle with the battery percentage on your device. I was not too familiar with the French black metal

Lucifer’s Child: “The Order” Album Review

In the dying season that is autumn, as both the temperature and the foliage descend and the year edges closer to its inevitable demise, the colder winds whisper hints of winter. It is in this season where it is socially acceptable to immerse yourself in the thin veil between the two worlds where all things haunted and dark are the

Music Video: Lucifer’s Child Unleash “The Order”

Today’s black metal progenitors sea-saw between grinding savagery and lo-fi noise, with the latter being a frequent call to arms for those who consider themselves “trve.” So it is refreshing to hear a track from Greece’s Lucifer’s Child who channel the dark lord with a righteous pummeling on “The Order” from the forthcoming album of the same name. It will

Acherontas: “Faustian Ethos” Album Review

Acherontas  are “… at the forefront of the Greek death/occult metal scene” reads their press release for Faustian Ethos. Just how crowded is the genre in Greece, I’m wondering. Heavy. Screaming. Twirling twiddling guitar riffs. Kinda guessing the vocals are Satanic and occult-y. Acherontas Faustian Ethos is nothing I’d find myself listening to on repeat, to be honest. Faustian Ethos is

King Parrot: “Ugly Produce” Album Review

King Parrot’s brand of tongue-in-cheek grindcore is not only fun, it’s addictive as hell! These guys pull no punches on Ugly Produce with heavy-as-hell riffs and out-of-control-freight-train pace, all while injecting humor that makes it extremely enjoyable. The production here is flawless, too! These Aussie’s bring the punch right out of the gate with “Entrapment.” It’s blistering in pace and

Forgotten Tomb Release Unnerving Lyric Video For “We Owe You Nothing”

Forgotten Tomb are nothing short of diabolical with the title track of their new album, We Owe You Nothing. Not only are the lyrics ultra-aggressive, but the bands lyric video for the track is a gory collection with a severe preoccupation with murder. Forgotten Tomb commented on the album: Our discography has always been divided by trilogies. We Owe You Nothing
