When chatting with Death Angel founding guitarist Rob Cavestany, we spoke about a number of different topics from the band’s latest killer disc RELENTLESS RETRIBUTION and how they managed to land a guest spot on one of their songs  to the history of the band who are closing in on 25 years in the game.

Minotaur – Power of Darkness

German thrash is the stuff of legend. It evolved into its own unique brand of thrash in the early 80s along with Canadian, Bay Area, Brazilian, and countless others still worshipped to this day. The “Holy Trinity” (or make that “unholy”) are inevitably Kreator/Sodom/Destruction, three bands all too often mentioned in the exact same breath. [&hellip

Horror Pain Gore Death Feature

Eat My Fuk – Fuk You it’s Eat My Fuk If the name isn’t enough to get encourage you to indulge in this X-rated, drunken, strung out, punk rock/metal cluster fuck of noise and social depravity, then you’re pathetic and beyond hope. For those want something that takes the lyrical inspiration from John Waters films [&hellip

Grondhaat – Humanity – The Flesh for Satan’s Pigs

It has been quite a while since I have listened to an album on my nice studio monitors for review purposes. I must say that the clarity offered was welcomed on the debut release from Grondhaat. Humanity – The Flesh for Satan’s Pigs reeks of rotten flesh drenched in stale piss and promises that your death be neither [&hellip

Fallen Sanctuary – Malevolent Symmetry

Imagine an existence in a future environment where open-minded rebelliousness and the determination of one’s own path through life is not only frowned upon, but actually ceased. Behind this extraction of “self”, a power-hungry organization known as the Prometheus Group engages manipulative and methods rooted in genetic degeneration disguised as mankind’s scientifically forged salvation…a “cure” [&hellip

Gravespawn

First of all, I really appreciated the that band established a real connection by physically sending a CD demo…Few bands remember that there is a real world instead Fuckbook or GaySpace… I am always willing to download the music myself instead of asking for or expecting freebies but the regard and consideration of something as [&hellip

Ptahil

Spawned from the vile pits of Ft. Wayne, Indiana in 2009, Ptahil is a no-bullshit black metal killing machine comprised of two like-minded conspirators. Rooted in the ideology of satanic gnosticism, founding member J. Mhaghnuis (battery/vocals) and the multi-instrumental Luathca combine their sinister talents for an end result embracing the beauty found in chaos and [&hellip

Styggelse

I remember the impact of that rough sound from Entombed’s Left Hand Path (no comparison here) and Styggelse brought me back a little sparkle of that feeling. It may be the vocals, it may be the production, it may be some kind of approach that I feel is sometimes lacking in the black metal panorama. [&hellip
