Pitbulls in the Nursery – Equanimity – Review

It’s been nine years since we last heard from this little known French artist, their debut album “Lunatic” released way back in 2006. For those unacquainted it was a hidden gem that took far too long to get the recognition it deserved; a slab of Progressive/Technical Death Metal that somehow managed to achieve that title [...]

XII Boar – Pitworthy – Review

XII Boar are out for blood. A punch from the left field, this band of unknown Brits have landed with a crash and from the moment it starts it’s clear they aren’t taking any prisoners. Announcing their arrival with the gusto of a heavyweight title fight they roll in with all the subtlety of a [...]

Musically this picks up where Amebix left off with the experimental  ‘Sonic [...]

Raein – Perpetuum [EP] – Review

Raein play screamo. Did everyone hear that? That was the sound of a thousand fists clenching as they prepare to punch me through my computer screen for defiling a metal page with that-which-shall-not-be-named. I bet you’re already forming an idea of what to expect; some adult pretending to “get” teens by wearing too much mascara [...]
