My Funeral – Thrash Destruction (2013)
Violent Journey Records -- Running Time 30:33

Do you fancy a good dose of neck snapping retro thrash, then look no further than the sophomore album ‘Thrash Destruction’ from Finnish band My Funeral, because the title says it all! My Funeral worship at the altar of German and UK thrash, so think Destruction, Sodom and Kreator with a pinch of Onslaught and you’re...

Suicide Tuesday – Suicide Tuesday
Self Released -- Running Time 57:16

Welcome to what appears to be my regular update of criminally unsigned bands! Sleaze Rock, Glam Metal, Hair Metal, whatever you want to call it, has been making a comeback in recent years and Suicide Tuesday from Nottingham in the UK are a great example of a modern day band who have captured the essence of what the 1980’s were...

Sawhill Sacrifice – Deus Humana Satanas (2013)
Violent Journey Records Running Time 40:45

After releasing two demos, Sawhill Sacrifice have now arrived properly on the scene with the release of their debut full length album ‘Deus Humana Satanas’. Another band hailing from deepest, darkest Finland this is a true Black Metal album with just a hint of Thrash and Death. Bleak, menacing and cold,...

Unhoped – Nuclear Death EP (2013)
Violent Journey Records -- Running Time 19:25

I have a question for you Dear Brutifuls! Do you love any of the following bands; Slayer, Kreator, Possessed, Venom, Warfare, Exciter, Sodom, Destruction, Nuclear Assault, Exodus or Obituary? If the answer to any of the above is yes, then you are going to love ‘Nuclear Death’ the new EP from Unhoped because it is Thrash/Death...

Sweet Taste – Hit The Spot EP (2013)
Rocksector Records -- Running Time 12:28

This is my last Rocksector Records band review for now, and it is yet another example that they come up with the goods time and time again. Sweet Taste, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, only signed with the label in February and already we have their fabulous EP ‘Hit The Spot’ to appreciate! Formed in 2009, the band have...

Fantasist – Fantasist (2013)
Rocksector Records -- Running Time 49:31

My next Rocksector band proves that this label do not confine themselves to one area of rock or metal, actively seeking good music from all corners of the genre. Enter Fantasist and their second, self titled album. How would I describe Fantasist? Well the first word that springs to mind is quirky, but that doesn’t really help...

Absolva – Flames Of Justice (2012)
Rocksector Records -- Running Time 51:47


What happens when your band is on the verge of breaking through and then the bass player gets asked to join metal titans Iced Earth? That is what happened to heavy rock trio Fury UK last year. Instead of replacing ‘Luke Appleton’, brother, lead guitarist and vocalist ‘Chris Appleton’ and drummer...

Triaxis – Rage And Retribution (2012)
Rocksector Records -- Running Time 53:46

My next few reviews will be focussing on the excellent Rocksector
Records, a truly great independent label that has a knack for signing superb up
and coming bands in the UK, and looking after them with style. I have already
covered Incassum and now it’s the turn of Welsh quintet Triaxis.

When I first...

Hammerforce – Access Denied (2013)
Metalism Records -- Running Time 51:00

Hammerforce have returned with their sophomore album ‘Access Denied’ and for anyone unfamiliar with their sound and who has to have a genre tag, I have taken it upon myself to give them the title ‘Twisted Power Metal’. Hailing from St. Petersburg in Russia, Hammerforce are one of a handful of bands, I can think of, who are...

Kaledon – Altor: The King’s Blacksmith (2013)
Scarlet Records - Running Time 46:13

Power Metal! Which side of the fence do you sit on? Do you find it bombastic, majestic, fantastical and erm powerful or do you consider it repetitive, boring, clichéd and cheesy? I have always belonged in the former group, but in such a saturated market not everything can possibly be considered classic. To me Italians...

DGM – Momentum (2013)
Scarlet Records -- Running Time 56:04

Question! When is a very good album NOT a very good album? Answer! When it’s so bloody brilliant as to render that description completely useless!
DGM’s eighth album ‘Momentum’ has quite literally sprung from nowhere to go straight to the top of my list of best albums for 2013 and it is going to take something of seismic proportions...

Godyva – Alien Heart (2013)
Southern Brigade Records/Scarlet Records - Running Time 55:24

Godyva are another in the seemingly unending list of gothic/symphonic, female –fronted metal bands that permeate the current scene, but... they have been around since 2000 and ‘Alien Heart’ is their third full length album so I suppose you could call them almost a veteran band in this genre. However, it is...

Kill Ritual – The Serpentine Ritual (2012)
Scarlet Records - Running Time 58:38

When Imagika finally called it a day in 2010 guitarist Steven Rice and tub thumper Wayne DeVecchi wanted to continue working on new material together and ‘Kill Ritual’ was born. Looking for seasoned players to join the ranks proved very fruitful with guitarist Roberto Proietti (ex Eldritch) and bassist Danyael Williams...

L Sol Tace – The Carcass Of Eternity (2013)
Running Time 45:07

Considering this band is from my ‘so called’ wonderful capital city of London, it’s very ironic that I have been introduced to L Sol Tace by someone in the US, but either way I’m glad I’ve finally heard them because debut album ‘The Carcass Of Eternity’ is a quite blistering and brutal nine songs and the more I listen to it, the better...

Kemilon – Twisted Storm (2012)
Maple Metal Records - Running Time 44:05

Kemilon are another power/progressive metal band from Montreal, Canada, but even though these guys only formed in 2008 and ‘Twisted Storm’ is their debut album I have heard of them and that’s probably because lead guitarist ‘Louis Jacques’ is also a member of ‘Blackguard’ who have been on my radar for a few years now. Kemilon...

Eclipse Prophecy – Days of Judgement (2013)
Maple Metal Records - Running Time 49:35

Even though Eclipse Prophecy have apparently been around since 2003, ‘Days of Judgement’ is their debut album. Formed in Montreal, Canada by lead vocalist/guitarist David McGregor and keyboard player Frederik Dufresne they are, at their core, a power metal band although there are elements of folk and symphonic...

Incassum – Rite Of Passage (2012)
Rocksector Records - Running Time 57:15

Manchester, UK based melodic death metal band Incassum are a fairly new name to me, in fact had I not been lucky enough to witness them live recently I probably would have been none the wiser as to their existence. I’m very glad that I have ‘discovered’ them though, because they are a genuinely talented bunch and their debut album...

Reign Of Fury – Psycho Intentions EP (2011)
Good Life Recordings - Running Time 20:28



The great thing about reviewing is that I’m constantly finding out about bands that breathe new life into the music scene. Reign Of Fury are one band, that over the last six months have become a firm favourite to me, so I thought it was only right that I review, not only their recently released album, but also...

Def-Con-One – Warface (2012)
Scarlet Records - Running Time 51:10



2012 was a storming year for great albums, but when I first heard ‘Warface’, the debut album from the UK’s Def-Con-One it went straight into my top ten releases of that year. If you want brutal groove then this is the band for you and quite simply I see them as a modern day Pantera. Put together by the severely underrated Antton...

Walkway – Top Shelf Content (2012)
Independent Release - Running Time 51:57



Walkway are a Classic Rock band whose name has been cropping up on my radar regularly over the last few months, with some very positive comments, so there was a good level of anticipation when loading their debut album ‘Top Shelf Content’ into my CD player for the first time! So the question is have they justified all the...

Ruthless Steel – Die In The Night EP (2013)
Iron On Iron Records - Running Time 16:05



Do you want to take a trip to the first half of the 1980’s either to reminisce or to discover, what classic Heavy Metal sounded like? If the answer to that is yes then you should certainly check out Ruthless Steel and their debut EP ‘Die In The Night’ because they will give you a pretty good idea. Hailing from Athens,...

Lifer – Cursing Them Out (2011)
Running Time - 46:57
Independent/House Of Doom

Do you love Down, Pantera, Clutch & Sabbath? Do you live for Thrash, Groove & Southern Metal with a dash of Hardcore, Punk & Death? If the answer to any of these is yes, indeed if you just love Heavy ‘fucking’ Metal then you need Lifer! If you’ve yet to hear this band, who come from South Wales (no they aren’t from the...

HeadrusH – The Best Of...So Far
Running Time 60:10



What I have here is a compilation, snappily entitled, ‘The Best Of...So Far’ by Stoke-On-Trent, UK based band HeadrusH, who up until recently had completely passed me by. They were actually formed in 2002 and spent their early years gigging relentlessly to build a healthy following. In more recent times they have shared the stage with many...

Neverworld – Welcome To...Neverworld EP (2010)
Self Released - Running Time 16:40


In recent years the resurgence of metal and rock acts with a more traditional sound has been a revelation, taking me back to those far flung days of my youth when Maiden, Priest and Saxon ruled the airwaves. I first became aware of UK based band Neverworld about two years ago after reading an excellent magazine review...
