Asphyx – Deathhammer

Whoever said the Grim Reaper is a “Negative Nancy”? I mean, sure, the guy can really put a damper on things when it comes to the more personal, inner workings of our lives as humans, but it’d be a bit naïve to say he’s 100% bad. One only needs to take a glimpse at all [&hellip

Radiation Sickness – Reflections of a Psychotic Past

You kids these days…let me tell ya! Not to give those impressionable, trend-hopping minds the opportunity to slap some kind of stupid-ass label on me for saying this, but at the age of thirty-five, I’ve reached the point where I’ve seen and heard enough clueless and even disrespectful behavior at the hands of the modern [&hellip

Profanatica – Sickened by Holy Host

Nothing brings me as much lascivious joy as a Profanatica release. I have no idea why, but I’m guessing that it’s that petrified cum crusted black death vermin that crawls out from a dismantled, desecrated, and long dead convent stalwarts shriveled vulva that makes most “normal” folks vomit and tremble in disgust that amuses me [&hellip

Dephosphorus – Axiom

We travel back to the land of Greece where I had just reviewed AMNIS NIHIL EP Christological Escalation. This time around we have DEPHOSPHORUS with their 7 track EP Axiom and their self described Astrogrind music.
