    71 Tonman (Poland) - War Is Peace  Peace Is Slavery - (Metallic Effect CD)

    71 Tonman (Poland) – War Is Peace Peace Is Slavery – (Metallic Effect CD)

    As the name suggests, 71TonMan are purveyors of earth‐shatteringly heavy music and their brand of doom/sludge metal furthermore is acerbic and crust‐scraping. Bands in this style rarely have this scathing, face‐melting sound and it’s strangely addictive, particularly the combination of huge, stomping riffs and absolutely vile vocals delivered in an almost grindcore manner ...

    Abaddon Incarnate -The Wretched Sermon (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark Effect Digipak)

    Abaddon Incarnate -The Wretched Sermon (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark Effect Digipak)

    Having been active since the ’90s, Irish grindcore/death metal legends have only perfected their sound over the years, creating a quintessential blend of both the styles. They’ve come a long way from their explosive, highly caustic album ‘Nadir’ that put them on the map and have since then imbibed more ...

    Abscession - Rot Of Ages - CDD

    Abscession – Rot Of Ages – CDD

    Atavistic HM-2 driven Swedish style death metal is given a sense of refined German death metal structuring and tempered with shimmering melodies, making Abscession’s new album ‘Rot of Ages’ the epitome of immaculately balanced old school death metal music. The music maintains a brisk and punchy crust/punk derived tempo throughout, deftly punctuating ...

    Abyssus - Death Revival (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) - CDD

    Abyssus – Death Revival (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) – CDD

    Starting off as a band playing a much faster, thrashier and crustier version of Obituary, Greek death metal band Abyssus have come a long way. Their music is now absolutely formidable; it’s impeccably structured and flawlessly executed without any compromises on the vision. The passion and spirit are still there ...

    As The World Dies - Agonist (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) - CDD

    As The World Dies – Agonist (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) – CDD

    Formed by members of Memoriam and Pemphigoid, As The World Dies are among UK’s most promising new bands. Gritty and spiteful, the music rampages mercilessly hearkening back to the era of Bolt Thrower, Grave and the like, even though As The World Dies have their own approach to it all ...

    Bizzare - Invocation Codex - CDD

    Bizzare – Invocation Codex – CDD

    Exhumed from the crypts of the forgotten Finnish death metal gods, the music of Bizarre is like an ancient dark force that has been summoned to be unleashed with magnified intensity upon the unsuspecting masses. Shrouded in layers of impenetrable darkness and reeking of otherworldly Lovecraftian horror and mystique, the music has ...

    Cutterred Flesh - Sharing Is Caring - CDD

    Cutterred Flesh – Sharing Is Caring – CDD

    Defying all expectations, Czech brutal death metal band Cutterred Flesh give birth to an album that can be regarded as an anomaly in the style, an aberration for a band sounding this heavy and brutal. Their constant variations, shocking mood changes, and tempo fluctuations belie the impossibly wide girth and ponderous gait ...

    Deathfuckingcunt - Decadent Perversity - Glow-In-The-Dark CDD

    Deathfuckingcunt – Decadent Perversity – Glow-In-The-Dark CDD

    With a name like that, it’s apparent that DeathFuckingCunt from Australia don’t pull any punches. Their music, too, is a violent, destructive, cathartic expression of brutal/technical death metal where everything is played at blinding fast speed. It’s a sheer delight to witness extremity in its unbridled form, without it degenerating into thoughtless ...

    Defect Designer - Neanderthal (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark Digipak)

    Defect Designer – Neanderthal (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark Digipak)

    In collusion with members of Diskord, Defect Designer from Norway are reinterpreting death metal their own way, adding grind influences and a maniacal fervour to it all. With the free-spirited, unhinged approach bordering on seeming frivolous, there is in fact a method to this madness; everything is meticulously thought out and written ...

    Dischordia - Triptych (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) - CDD

    Dischordia – Triptych (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) – CDD

    Forging the brutal, technical and dissonant death metal styles, Dischordia have created a triumvirate of evolved and complicated death metal which will require the unspooling of brains to fully decipher it. It may have to be soaked overnight or given as much time with it too, for indeed, to absorb ...

    Diskord (Norway) - Degenerations - (Metallic Effect CD)

    Diskord (Norway) – Degenerations – (Metallic Effect CD)

    Eccentric Norwegian death metal band Diskord have made quite a reputation for themselves over the years for playing some twisted, unhinged death metal that takes the best elements of old school death metal, dissonant death metal, technical death metal, even progressive and jazz music, and then some. Their death metal is wonderfully ...

    Dodsferd (Greece) - Skotos - (Glow In The Dark CD)

    Dodsferd (Greece) – Skotos – (Glow In The Dark CD)

    Greek black metal legends Dødsferd conjure up what’s arguably their best material yet. This is a step up still from their landmark album ‘Diseased Remnants of a Dying World’ and it retains the fiery, emotionally‐charged black metal music on that one while improving upon the intensity and expression. The two songs are ...

    Eremit (Germany) - Bearer Of Many Names (Glow In The Dark Effect) - CDD

    Eremit (Germany) – Bearer Of Many Names (Glow In The Dark Effect) – CDD

    German sludge/doom overlords Eremit return after releasing a fantastic EP in last year’s ‘Desert of Ghouls’ which acted as a bridge between the band’s earth‐shatteringly heavy debut full length and the follow‐up album which is definitely a progression. The band doesn’t shy away from writing epic songs averaging 20 minutes, with the ...

    Ernia – How To Deal With Life And Fail 8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark Digipak)

    With two members of Wormed in their lineup, Spanish grindcore band Ernia have managed to perfect the sound on their sophomore album which is both refreshing and riveting. The music is just as colourful as their artwork, full of intricate bits and with every song offering something different without abandoning the core ...

    Et Moriemur - Tamashii No Yama (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) - CDD

    Et Moriemur – Tamashii No Yama (8-Panel Glow-In-The-Dark) – CDD

    Czech doom metal band Et Moriemur set new standards for themselves with their previous Greek-themed album ‘Epigrammata’ which borrowed elements of death and black metal and flawlessly integrated them in their unique brand of atmospheric doom metal. This time they’re exploring Japanese themes and have frankly outdone themselves. It’s rare ...
