update
close x Least Worst Option is the new and independently operated media review project of long-time Masterful Magazine scribe Wouter Roemers. He will remain with us, while doing his own project. The goal is to cover metal records, both old and new, in greater length and detail on comparison to the more compact reviews people have come to expect here. Least Worst Option will cover mostly metal records, but will occasionally venture into pop territory to keep things interesting, coverage of old and new video games is something to be found there as well. Check out all of this and more at www.leastworstoption.com .

Flemming Gabin, Masterful Magazine’s resident misanthrope and regular drunken and angry reviewer, has his own dedicated blog at www.flemminggabin.wordpress.com - where he publishes his own often incoherent and incomplete thoughts on various extreme metal albums. Flemming is somewhat of a recluse, so we have not included his postal address on this site. You can sent your promos to the known addresses, and we’ll pass them on to Flemming for his usual, insultive and confrontational coverage. In due course, some of the Flemming’s reviews will also be translated into Polish, due to popular demand.

Least Worst Option and Flemming Gabin are on FaceBook too! So "like" them, share them and remember to visit them regularly.

the newest reviews

we managed to write something

Calvaiire

"Forceps"
Odin knows that Mastodon is a really fucken stupid hipster band that needs to die. Calvaiire are from France, and are fucken angry for some reason. Fuck knows I like me some fucken hardcore every once in a while. "Forceps" lives up to its fucken title. It feels like a well-placed fucken right hook, and a kick to the fucken groin. Holy crap, dudes. Does this band sound pissed off and angr...

Descend

"Wither"
Descend are from Stockholm, but actually sound like a 90s Gothenburg band. To be fucken honest, I thought this band was German going by their sound cos this sounds a lot like Fragments Of Unbecoming, or Golem. You know, fucken kraut metal bands trying to sound Swedish. Anyway, this is the first Swedish band on Inverse Records to my fucken experience and it is actually is… good. Who the fuck knew...

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.

  • Gorement Complete Recordings To Be Released In September

    2012-08-03

    Swedish legendary Gorement has inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records for the release of the band's entire catalog.
    "Within The Shadow Of Darkness - The Complete Recordings" will be made available on September 24 on 2CD and double vinyl as well as digital download.
    Other than on Gorement's discography compilation, "Darkness Of The Dead" (released in 2004), the entire musical content included on the upcoming release has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes by Dan Swano, who has already been in charge for the production of Gorement's demos and the "Into Shadows" EP. The result is mind-blowing: All songs sound fresh and incredibly massive without ever losing their original character.

    "Within The Shadow Of Darkness – The Complete Recordings" track listing:

    CD1
    01. My Ending Quest
    02. Vale Of Tears
    03. Human Relic
    04. The Memorial
    05. The Lost Breed
    06. Silent Hymn (For The Dead)
    07. Sea Of Silence
    08. Obsequies Of Mankind
    09. Darkness Of The Dead
    10. Into Shadows

    All songs taken from the album "The Ending Quest" (1994)

    CD2
    01. Intro
    02. Darkness Of The Dead
    03. Human Relic
    04. Moulder Within
    05. Intro
    06. Process Of Cent
    07. Gruesome Modification Of Form
    08. Obsequies Of Mankind
    09. The Memorial
    10. Into Shadows
    11. Garden Of Delight

    Tracks 1-4 taken from the "Human Relic" demo (1991)
    Tracks 5-8 taken from the "Obsequies ..." demo (1991)
    Tracks 9-10 taken from the "Into Shadows" EP (1992)
    Tracks 11-13 taken from the "Promo '95" demo (1995)
    Tracks 14-18 are previously unreleased live tracks (1991) - only on CD

    "Within The Shadow Of Darkness" features cover artwork by German/Swiss artist Carlos Schwabe (1926) whose creepy painting "La Vague" fits the release like perfectly. The album is packed with everything you can ask for: liner notes by the band, a detailed interview done by Nicola Costantini (well known for his books "Encyclopedia of Svensk Dodsmetall" and "The Return ... Of Svensk Dodsmetall"), all lyrics and loads of old flyers, photos, covers, fanzine interviews, etc.
