Fans of huge Prog epics should look away now as Insanity Alert’s third full length, 666-Pack, is the antithesis of all you hold dear. Twenty-one tracks packed into a tight thirty-two minutes means Insanity Alert don’t have the time to kick their heals and, instead, get...

Vreid (wrath in Norwegian) formed in 2004, rising out of the ashes of Windir's untimely demise following the tragic death of lead singer and founder, Valfar. “Lifehunger” is Vreid's eighth full-length studio album, having put out a record roughly once every two years s...

Hailing from Winnipeg, Canada, KEN Mode have always been releasing heavy, aggressive, but smartly presented albums. It's no surprise when their name stands for Kill Everyone Now Mode. Their last album was a slight departure from their usual fare, with a slightly lighte...

Primitive Man formed in 2012, having so far released only a single full-length album, 2013's highly rated “Scorn”, a vicious piece of abrasive sludge-doom metal that set the manifesto for what Primitive Man were all about. After releasing various singles and split E.Ps...

When I first saw the promo come through for EOD: A Tale of Dark Legacy, I had an immediate pang of excitement, as I had been a big fan of France's The Great Old Ones ever since their debut release “Al Azif” back in 2012. So it was, with great expectations that I hit “p...

Vipsassi were not a band I had heard anything about before receiving this promo, so before listening I had no idea what to expect. The album cover doesn't give away too much apart from the geometrical patterns hinting that this is unlikely to be simplistic or brutal bu...

Another day, another show at London Underworld where Nightshift promotions continue to make it ridiculously easy to hand over hard earned pennies in return for night of decent bands. Tonight’s bands come in the form of the hard and heavy in front of what feels like alm...
