Thrashing Death Metal glory! Old school Death/Thrash played by devotional maniacs; divebombing Guitar squalls and squeals, twang Bass excellence, thrashing galloping rhythms, throaty vocal menace, strong Riffs and poser-destroying leads. The Bass tone is seriously wonderful, in fact the production in general is spot-on. There’s a teeny touch of first wave Black Metal primordiality here, as you’d hope from a band playing Ancient Metal of this type. Think early Slayer, Celtic Frost, or early Death. Necro! Grab a tape from the excellent Headsplit Records, and listen to in a boneyard with beers. Short and sweet. (Edit – this one sold out, so listen to the MP3s in your room and pretend it’s a boneyard, poser).



Part two of a most unwanted trilogy. Brain destroying mundanity, recycled music repurposed to perverse, cryptic intention. Horrible seasickness sounds, hacked and chewed, slow looped nightmares of zero enjoyment. The chosen samples are seemingly drab and innocuous, as with so much of the honourable Master Tross’ work; The way these slowed beats play underneath yawning vocal relay is utterly simplistic and yet totally menacing and upsetting. Loopy sound, Ambient Death. Distorted muzak, celluloid deterioration. You should probably worry.



Goregrind slop from Taipei, featuring Hagamoto on guitars and Derek of Myxoma on Drums.  Hammering Goregrind with grooves and pace, utterly drenched in vile gastric juices and assorted digestive slimes. Overdriven, pungent E-Coli Goregrind of the variety you know and love. There’s a scoop of Death Metal riffs in here too, with Dynamic tempo switch-ups, trade-off vomit Vocal retching and extremely tight blast beat action, expertly applied samples, and a distinct lack of pinch harmonics for a Haga-related project. Smells like it might have gone septic…delicious! Short and Horrid!
