Denver gore-obsessed Death Metallers Angelic Desolation, not only make great extreme metal, they are students of the game as well! Their new album Orchestrionic Abortion is dropping on March 31st, 2023, and includes seven originals that slap and a sick Cattle Decapitation cover. Check outr their music and merch here. The band has blessed (cursed?) us to know their Top 10 Albums of 2022.

ALBUM REVIEW: Psycroptic – Divine Council
In the two (plus!) decades since their inception, it seems that Tasmanian death metallers Psycroptic have simultaneously had their plaudits and yet also feel like an underrated act, especially considering their ascent in their recent albums. Whilst 2003’s The Scepter of the Ancients was an early career high point, it wasn’t until 2015’s self titled effort (and first on current label Prosthetic) where they began to show themselves again amongst the upper echelon of bands in their field. If this was an arguable statement previously, Divine Council is the album that makes it a certainty.
Acclaimed Metal Album Cover Artist Mariusz Lewandowski Has Died
Sad news as respected and acclaimed Metal music album cover artist and fine arts ambassador Mariusz Lewandowski has died. He was 62 years old. No cause of death has been revealed. News of his death was passed along by his family in a Facebook post, which you can see below. Known for his surrealist and horrifying paintings, Lewandowski came to prominence as an artist with countless commissions and exhibitions over the years, but became known to the heavy music community with stunning album artwork for bands such as Bell Witch, Abigail Williams, Psycroptic, and recently, Lorna Shore, among many others. Rest in power. Continue reading

Vale of Pnath – Accursed
In the last decade or so, the state of Colorado has gifted the world with uncommonly exceptional, heavy bands. The Denver based act, Vale of Pnath is one of these young groups that have brought a fantastically particular Death Metal sound to the scene. With two full-length albums under their belt, the band is going back to the EP format for their newest release, Accursed (Willowtip Records). It’s been three years since their last record and this genre-dodging ensemble is finally bringing more of their innovative work to light.
Psycroptic – Aversions Crown – Within Destruction: Live at The Dome, London
Tonight is a busy day for Metal in the Capital, with the dreaded evening of multiple gig clashes, within a few stops of the Northern Line alone. One stop down from tonight’s proceedings in Tufnell Park sees the Cerberus-like bill of Behemoth, At The Gates and Wolves In The Throne Room, whilst Camden Town sees Toundra for those seeking something more mellow, and Obscura for some who, well, aren’t. This goes someway to explaining why The Dome looks tonight to be, at best, around half capacity for much of the night. Not that this seems to dampen anyone’s mood, as all night the crowd are on fine form, showing the bands plenty of love and movement as well as respect to one another. Continue reading

Psycroptic – As The Kingdom Drowns
I imagine if you as far into your career as Death Metal veterans Psycroptic are right now, you reach a certain point where it’s either stick or twist. Their albums since the very start have always delivered the goods but it wasn’t until 2003’s Scepter Of The Ancients (Unique Leader) that it truly felt like the band had arrived, they then proceeded to tread water somewhat with albums that never even came close to Scepter…Continue reading
