Moribund Records Feature

http://www.moribundcult.com Dodsferd – Spitting With Hatred the Insignificance of Life What to say about this project that hasn’t been said in it’s title and decade or so of audio misanthropy? Well, where progression with a band may render weakness and loss of the original potent hatred and angst, Dodsferd keeps it raw but somehow the [&hellip

Castle – In Witch Order

U.S. metal act, Castle, simply put…SLAYS!!!! Possibly it’s the rough and aggressive female vocals balanced out with an uncertain seductiveness. I’m somewhat thinking of something like Pentagram and Pale Divine fronted by Reino Ermitano vocalist Tanya Duarte, but even that isn’t quite where this bands sound is. Although clearly doom like, this release is obliterating [&hellip

Buried At Birth – Smashed

I don’t study music…not really. Not in the sense that I can identify Renaissance period classical compositions from Romantic or Baroque. Nor do I pass my time splitting cunt hairs over the difference in grindcore and deathcore…and why is that? Because it isn’t necessary, it is fucking obvious!!! But, since I haven’t put my proverbial pen to [&hellip

Blood Devotion – Defile of Innocence

The haunting guitar intro sets the mood for this 23 minute EP from Russians Blood Devotion. Quite stereotypical with its dissonant melody and atmospheric howling wind sound effects, the poorly titled ‘Intro’ and ‘Outro’ tracks serve as sorry bookends to an otherwise enjoyable release. ‘Rotting of Soul’ whips like an icy wind with its blast and [&hellip

Wormrot – Dirge

In an age where it’s all to easy to find one’s self adrift in the seemingly endless sea of “all bark, no bite” bands that has flooded the heavy music scene for years, it’s like winning some kind of headbanger’s lottery when you’re suddenly hit head-on by something with legitimate, bone-shattering substance and aggression. To [&hellip

Vastum – Carnal Law

You know that amazing feeling when you realize you have not only formed an unstoppable, valid-as-all-hell opinion on something, but know you’re 100% right in the basis of such heartfelt belief? It’s that oh-so-glorious moment when you find out that your brain is undoubtedly aligned with the entirety of the goddamned cosmos or some shit…because [&hellip

Cultes des Ghoules – Haxan

Originally released in 2008 by Under the Sign of Gazarel and Flagellum Haereticorum Records, Cultes des Ghoules’ debut full-length studio CD now comes out of the darkness anew, thanks to Hells Headbangers. Formed in Poland in 2004, Cultes des Ghoules (their name taken from a fictional Lovecraft tome) play black metal. Before this release, the [&hellip

Trap Them – Darker Handcraft

Picture this: total immersion in violent, gut-wrenching sound. What graces the ears in the instance of cruel madness? A warp-speed, head-on truck collision on the German autobahn…or the steel and concrete of an office building crashing down to ruins upon the fragile bodies of those unfortunate enough to be inside…or the eruption of a lunatic’s [&hellip
