Fhoi Myore / Pestiferum

Knowing little of either band on this split, I immediately like what I heard when I was contacted by Fhoi Myore’s drummer about a review for their new split with Pestiferum. Over the top and melodic, ‘La Forme Creatrice Du Chaos / Le Chaos Religieux’, is blast beat dream come true, violent as fucking hell until [&hellip

Humiliation – Turbulence from the Deep

When I first opened up this promo, my expectations went from high to low rather quickly when I laid my eyes upon the cover art and title. ‘Turbulence from the Deep’, the fourth full length from Malaysia’s Humiliation, set off more alarms of being disposable than I could count before I even got the CD [&hellip

http://www.bloodharvest.se/ First up on this sickening feature is Australia’s Backyard Mortuary with their debut full length ‘Lure of the Occult’. A thick atmosphere of doom and disease immediately greets all who push play on this album, darkening the path into the dank tomb.

Wartime – Solar Messiah

Bulgarian death maniacs Wartime return with their sophomore full-length, ‘Solar Messiah’. Slamming powerful riffs and rhythms from the start, Wartime make it clear they are pulling no punches with this release. Down-tuned groove is the order of the hour on ‘The Deepest Fear’, creating a monstrous rhythm section for lead singer Ivan to belt his [&hellip

Blinded by Faith – Chernobyl Survivor

This Canadian quartet’s newest offering has been sitting on my desk for a bit too long. Something about required more than a single listen for me to really get a solid appreciation for it. Perhaps the cover art is a little too ‘CG’ or Blinded by Faith’s logo is much too legible to seem credible. [&hellip

Deepsend Records Feature

‘Prophetic’, the debut full-length from Australia’s Eternal Rest, has made a good impression on me, relying a solid balance of sensible songwriting and sheer brutality to make their presence known and felt. After the obligatory minute and a half intro in which two classical guitar delightedly dance to a rather dull melody, the face-melting death [&hellip
