Uncanny – MCMXCI – MCMXCIV

One of my favorite styles and favorite labels right now keep churning out the old school Swedish Death metal resurrections with Toxeamia and now Uncanny. Nothing tops this stuff in my world, that era and those bands left scars on me that I proudly bare and revel in decades later. Each band has it’s own [&hellip

Omnizide

Hi there, can you tell us more about the band and why, a after long time, you rejoined from what was left of Belzen to form Omnizide? Well, when Nox did some vocals on the Avsky song “Dead End” , we begun to talk about reforming Belzen again. We tried with a couple of drummers [&hellip

The Mission Creeps – Dark Cells

Tucson, Arizona stalwarts The Mission Creeps have been creeping (pun very much intended, and not a good one, but I tried!) around for some time now with their horror-inspired brand of surfy-garagey-rockabilly’y jams. Their second full-length continues their path of zombies, ghouls, and Frankenstein-filled nightmares with nods to political and social matters and plenty of tongue-in-cheekiness for [&hellip

Rotten Sound – Cursed

Picture the scenario…you just finished a long week’s worth of clock-punching, soul-crushing slave labor, grudgingly doing your part in the nine-to-five daily grind. Tired and anxious for the time to relax, you stagger to your car to once again join the frenzy of the same old rush hour mob. As your weary eyes squint from [&hellip

Shitty Fucker – Diarrheality EP

The name alone sold me on this band, sort of like the Butthole Surfers and Anal Cunt…who, speaking of which, can be heard in these 7 scatologically pornographic anthems of brilliant stomping rhythmic sleaze. Pure Fecalphelia with a gritty sludge/grunge/grind/punk feel, the hooks and riffs are as unmistakable as the lyrics and audio clips about [&hellip

Macabre – Grim Scary Tales

“A clown can get away with murder.” – John Wayne Gacy Creative inspiration can come from a vast spectrum of sources for most people. Some people may find their artistic muse in the form of a warm summer day, while the brains of others stir at the arrival of a thunderstorm. Some may find solitary [&hellip

It was there, that Elisabeth’s father held [&hellip

He is now accompanied by Jeroen Paul Thesseling (Pestilence), Christian Muenzner (Necrophagist) and Hannes Grossmann (also Necrophagist). The band’s second release was quite [&hellip
