Victims Of Vile Torture - TOMBSTONER

The death metal scene is so grotesquely overpopulated these days (and not necessarily in a bad way!) that it takes a band of some distinction to stand alone, at least in musical terms. Not that TOMBSTONER are particularly radical, at least compared to some of the mind-bending things that people have done with the genre ...

Mass Failure - SCORDATURA

They do things properly in Scotland. Brutal death metal has never been so well endowed with mind-blowing bands as it is today, but even by this year's skull-shattering standards of excellence, "Mass Failure" rips incredibly fucking hard indeed. SCORDATURA warned us in advance, of course; both 2013's "Torment of the Weak" and 2017's "Self-Created Abyss" ...

Betrayal - CORDYCEPS

Another day, another death metal kicking to savor. CORDYCEPS already sounded like the finished article on their 2017 EP "Black Blood Butchery", but "Betrayal" is a far more devastating statement of intent. Brutal death metal doesn't generally facilitate progressive ideas, and there's a lot to be said for the remorseless, jugular-targeting approach that many more ...

Become The Hunter - SUICIDE SILENCE

It's not hard to imagine that SUICIDE SILENCE's self-titled record from 2017 seemed like a good idea at the time, but there's no denying that it proved to be both a commercial and critical hiccup along the rock 'n' roll road. Not that the band needed to justify making a record they plainly wanted and ...
