Thornesbreed - GTRD (Art of Propaganda)

Get this now...
Release Date: 
28 Jun 2015 - 11:30pm

I'm unsure about the validity of deconstructing GTRD, Thornesbreed's second album - indeed, their first full length in 12 years, as I understand it - suffice to say that i

Abominator- Evil Proclaimed (Hells Headbangers)

War metal. War metal never changes...

Simply by virtue of the limited audience and reach available to them, most Australian metal bands can be considered to be underground bands.

Perdition Temple- The Tempter's Victorious (Hells Headbangers)

One order of blackened death but hold the gravy.
Release Date: 
23 Mar 2015 - 11:30pm

If we were to get metaphorical for a moment and compare metal record labels to restaurants, then Hells Headbangers would definitely be the little fish and chip shop down the road.

Kyzer Soze - Ascension (Truth Inc Records)

Fat like your mum...
Release Date: 
13 Feb 2015 - 12:30am

The blackened death stylings of Kyzer Soze are, to put it bluntly, fucking sweet.

Blackened death metal...
Release Date:

Angular blackened metal...
Release Date: 
5 Jun 2014 - 11:30pm

Australia's Norse come at you with their EP Pest like a shower of metal objects; Encoded Weakness kicks off proceedings with all the sharpness of a shower of kitc

Lvcifyre - Svn Eater (Dark Descent)

Satan shalt be brutal, but never same-y...
Release Date: 
21 Jan 2014 (All day)

I'd heard good things about Lvcifyre but hadn't heard a lick of their music up till now, which is always an interesting experience for a reviewer.

Gehenna - Unravel (Indie Recordings)

'Tis a slow-slithering grimness which unravels here...
Release Date: 
11 Oct 2013 - 1:36am

I first became aware of Gehenna via their 1994 album, First Spell. I dug it, it was sorta creaky but nevertheless endearing black metal.

Emblazoned - The Living Magisterium EP (Deepsend Records)

Intriguing blackened death metal...
Release Date: 
2 Sep 2013 - 11:30pm

This debut EP from a collective of members associated with Jungle Rot, Decrepit Birth, Micawber and Decrescent is quite the delig
