Rusty Pacemaker – Blackness and White Light

When it comes to the inspirations behind music, or any form of art for that matter, it often seems easy to determine the muse of the artist in question. We’ve all heard countless doom-oriented bands pledge their allegiance to the likes of Black Sabbath as expected, judging from fact that their riffs bear the same [&hellip

Enabler – Year One

It would probably be safe, for most people anyway, to assume that when a band crosses style or genre lines, blurring the boundaries of “tradition“ so to speak, it can go one of two ways: flawlessly beautiful or ridiculously laughable. For example, it has been a long-standing (almost militant) viewpoint of mine that if one [&hellip

Spearhead – Theomachia

First off, let’s just get one thing straight; this is NOT that joke of a band consisting of a bunch of “multicultural” overglorified neo-hippies gathered together and making every single nerve they happen to twitch into some sort of laughable socio-political “message” that has been assailing the airwaves left-and-right lately (not that I bother letting [&hellip

Beherit – At the Devil’s Studio 1990

Never heard first studio full length from this preeminent Finnish black metal act featuring their condemned birthing, and it’s as reptilian, menacing, vile, and crushing as would be expected. The production is genuinely and appropriately crude, keeping the bands sound and atmosphere preserved for over 20 years, never masking or refining the vulgar beginnings of [&hellip

Cannabis Corpse – Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise

Forward: The Forbidden Magazine review you are about to witness may very well startle you. It would not have been possible, otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new thrashing death metal menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers. Cannabis Corpse is that drug – a violent narcotic [&hellip

Disma – Towards The Megalith

Ever wonder what the official house band of the much-advertised “end times” would have to bring to the proverbial table? You know, it’d have to be something sonically equivalent to the whole “gnashing of teeth/burning of flesh” bit we’ve all heard about so many times throughout our lives, spouted from the slobbering mouths of just [&hellip
