the newest reviews

we managed to write something

Dracena

"Ravenous Bloodlust" ep (2014)
Nothing can stop Mia Larsson. Even though she has been bringing the pain since 1994, it is fucken unbelieveable that no label has picked up this band yet. “Ravenous Bloodlust” is a furious exercise in hellish black/thrash metal with keen heavy metal sensibilities. You’d imagine that with the popularity of populist shit like Skeletonwitch that actual honest-to-Odin good bands like Dracena wou...

the newest interviews

new stuff from us

Death Tyrant

Wouter Roemers
I had some material done already before the demise of Lord Belial. Some of the material was actually intended for the next Lord Belial album, but since we disbanded I changed around all of the ideas into new songs.

Electrocution

"Metaphysincarnation" 2cd (2014)
Supposedly Electrocution is one of those “legendary” early Italian death metal bands that nobody ever heard of. They apparently formed in 1990 and released their debut “Inside the Unreal” in 1993, which all of three people heard. I never heard of Electrocution prior to getting this fucken promo, and for a band that has been inactive for the better part of 17 years – this stuff actually sounds decent, for a change. Anyway, this sounds a lot like Malevolent Creation, old Monstrosity and pre-“The Sound Of Perseverance” Death. I’m a...

Defeated Sanity

Wouter Roemers
I don’t really consider it that much superior. But we KEPT the quality from 1st to 4th album, and that is something that is not easy to do! And I think there will come a 5th album that will kick just as much ass.
