Orden Ogan – Ravenhead – Review

Scouring the internetz for new releases to sink my teeth into and passing up on most, I realise that in an age where there is a greater demand for my free time than for musical material to spend it on, instant gratuity in an artist has become an increasingly desirable quality. Perhaps this is the [...]

Napalm Death – Apex Predator – Easy Meat – Review

Consistency, thy name is Napalm Death. 2015 sees the grind masters release their 16th full length titled ‘Apex Predator – Easy Meat‘. Looking back at their releases so far, you are probably expecting another brilliant release that grinds your soul. Well, that is exactly what they deliver. After all these years, reviewing a Napalm Death [...]

The Ferrets Best of 2014

This year was disappointing. Disappointing not because no good music was released but rather, disappointing that so much went unknown (at least by myself), and I’m sure in the years to come I’ll uncover plenty of artists I previously missed. It’s also is the first year I’ve noticed a distinct difference in peoples preferences; last [...]

Bloodshot Dawn – Demons

Yes! All hail the glorious return of one of the finest acts to debut in 2012; shaking up the metal world in the years since with their blend of hard hitting death metal, never compromising for the melodies and delivering more than a tinge of thrash in the process. It was a breath of fresh [...]

Anaal Nathrakh – Desideratum – Review

If there was ever a competition for selecting music best suited as theme for a global apocalypse, British duo Anaal Nathrakh would surely be a top contender. Irrumator and V.I.T.R.I.O.L. have been creating some of the most abrasive music known to mankind since the turn of the century and this year they are back with [...]

Periphery – Juggernaut: Alpha & Omega – Review

Posted  January 29, 2015  by  Thomas Bawden

My opinion of this artist has long been one of apathy. I enjoyed their debut, but not to the extent of bothering to listen to their follow-up. It wouldn’t be until their Clear EP last year—an EP so awful that the artist in question essentially held up their hands and exclaimed “what did you expect? [...]

Shards – 17/01/15 – London – Live Review

Posted  January 22, 2015  by  Thomas Bawden

It has been some time since I last took the time to write a record of a live performance, partly due to a lack of shows I’ve been to recently but also in part down to the fact that rarely does calling it a performance seem entirely justified. Watching musicians perform their craft in person [...]
