Exploration: Agony – Apocalyptic Dawning (1995)

These short lived Canadian crushers are labeled as "brutal" death metal (BROOTAL) which I guess is a genre. If "Old School" death metal can be a genre I guess anything can. Yeah, yeah, I know "brutal" death metal has it's... Continue Reading →

Darkified – A Dance on the Grave (1995)

And we're off to Sweden again top unearth some obscure death metal madness in the form of Darkified. Darkified is a band that existed for the entirety of a year. Their only two releases, a demo and an EP came... Continue Reading →

Ceremonium – Into the Autumn Shade (1995)

More death/doom? Yes, more fucking death/doom. I have a lot of overlooked death/doom albums just piled up waiting to be featured on this site. I'm lacking history in this genre, which I'm finding to be either not properly labeled or... Continue Reading →

Mass Psychosis – Face (1995)

I bet in 1995 the death metal craze was already starting to produce formulaic releases and I bet a band like Mass Psychosis would have stuck out like a sore fucking thumb back then. At least in hindsight it's easy... Continue Reading →

Crystal Age – Far Beyond Divine Horizons (1995)

Swedish? Check. 90s? Double check. Only album? Check, check, check. Melodic as fuck death metal with a sci-fi theme? Sweet holy hell, check. Then how the fuck did I miss this for so long? It's the sort of album that... Continue Reading →

Eructation – The Fumes of Putrefaction (1992 – 1995) Compilation (2016)

Fucking riff city here. Just fucking riffs for days. That's what's going on with Eructation, an extremely short lived early 90's Swedish band. Only putting out one demo in 1992, make another lost demo and ill fated EP, they existed... Continue Reading →

Kreator – Cause for Conflict (1995)

Welcome to Kreator week! Kreator has a new album coming out this week and seeing as they are one of my favorite bands I thought it might be fun to explore the "darker" era of the band. That's right, that... Continue Reading →

Fermenting Innards – Myst (1995)

Let's stick with the German black metal theme for another day. This band hits me in three of my nerdy metal spots: Mid 90's black metal, they only have one full-length release, and fucking Dan Swano is involved. Now you... Continue Reading →
