Exploration: Hour of Penance – The Vile Conception (2008)

I feel like I need one of those stupid fucking "I don't always do something but when I do I..." because that's how I have to qualify my listening to brutal death metal. It's not a genre I get in... Continue Reading →

ColdWorld – Melancholie² (2008)

There was a fair bit of commotion, "buzz" if you will, last year about the new ColdWorld album. Not being familiar with the band, hearing all the good things about it, and knowing people were referring to it as a... Continue Reading →

Coffins – Buried Death (2008)

Sometimes for no real reason or through complete randomness bands seem to repeatedly pop up in my internet browsing habits or through conversation and for some reason it feels like I'm constantly seeing or hearing stuff about Coffins as of... Continue Reading →

Intestine Baalism – Ultimate Instinct (2008)

I really need to explore more Japanese metal bands. As it stands, on this blog, there's only ONE Japanese band covered. That's all on me, because I love some Japanese bands, but I've never glommed on to that countries output... Continue Reading →

Forteresse – Les Hivers de notre epoque (2008)

Again, the lack of any post about this band is a huge oversight on my part. Mostly because Forteresse is fucking amazing and I think a prime example of one of the goals I have with this post: Overlooked. Now... Continue Reading →

Virus – The Black Flux (2008)

I’ve been enthralled with Virus’ new album Memento Collider this year but it occurred to me I hadn’t heard any of their previous albums, which as you’ll see and hear, seemed absolutely crazy to me. Based solely on the fact... Continue Reading →

Blasphemophagher – Nuclear Empire of Apocalypse (2008)

I’ve been in a shitty, pissed off, angry mood the past couple days and today I really wanted to hear something that would mirror my current state of being. Going through my collection of albums I’ve yet to explore, Blasphemophagher... Continue Reading →
