Reptilian Death – The Dawn of Consummation and Emergence

I won’t bother going into all the typical factual nonsense that often accompanies my reviews with this release from Reptilian Death. All right, most of them, anyway. I mean, you will just forget where the band is from, what other 3 bands the drummer has toured with, et cetera. What should concern you is whether or [&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.

VOMITOR – THE ESCALATION

I’ve been many shades of impressed with all of Vomitor’s material. Coming at your jugular full-on, they have a very lo-fi, distorted sound to boost their early Sodom vibe further into the depths of drunken Hell. I was extremely stoked to see a new album was out (what’s the deal with the new logo?) and [&hellip
