Exploration: Jag Panzer – Chain of Command (2004)

I may have mentioned it in my other Jag Panzer review, but just in case you missed that, Jag Panzer released their fucking classic debut Ample Destruction in 1984 then fucked off for a decade only to return with the disastrous Dissident... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Strung Out – Exile in Oblivion (2004)

Let's not bury the lead here: Strung Out are not a metal band. This is going somewhere though, I swear. Back when I was a wee little punk rocker in the 90's, pop-punk was hitting all over the place and... Continue Reading →

Pagan Altar – Lords of Hypocrisy (2004)

And here we go... another band that is right up my alley that I've never listened to. Don't get me wrong, I've been very much aware of Pagan Altar for sometime now I just never took that dive, for whatever... Continue Reading →

Ribspreader – Bolted to the Cross (2004)

Oh, Dan Swan. It might be impossible to track down all the projects he’s been involved with. His output is amazing but I’m still surprised that I can find stuff of his, after listening to so much, that is still... Continue Reading →

The Ruins of Beverast – Unlock the Shrine (2004)

I can’t believe I haven’t made a post about The Ruins of Beverast. That seems neglectful, chicanerous at best. Especially considering I’ve done a Nagelfar post. I have to admit, this is a bit intimidating posting about Ruins as I... Continue Reading →

Haemoth – Vice, Suffering and Destruction (2004)

I’m sure over the past year or two I’ve been doing these posts the word “fast, hateful, raw, furious, intense” have come up a million times. At fucking least. There’s only so many ways my limited vocabulary can talk about black... Continue Reading →

Big Business – Head for the Shallow (2004)

We’re touching on a genre that doesn’t come up very often on this blog: Sludge. There’s been rise of sludge worship over the past couple years and sludge has gained this sort of reverence. It’s not really a genre I... Continue Reading →

Marduk – Plague Angel (2004)

I’m a pretty big Marduk fan. Particularly their first four albums. I think those are some of the best black (and death) metal albums from the time and still to this day. Their last two albums were pretty good as... Continue Reading →

Forgotten Tomb – Love’s Burial Ground (2004)

I haven’t featured much Italian metal on here. Not for the countries lack of output, probably more for my lack of trying. Let’s remedy that with some Forgotten Tomb. I love this bands 2003 release Springtime Depression and gave their... Continue Reading →
