new album

Desecrator- To The Gallows (Dinner For Wolves)

Straight up Aussie thrash that won't leave you hanging.

Every live music scene seems to have its fair share of workhorse bands; groups that give lifeblood to the scene with their dedication and talent, but never seem to get the recognition they deserve.

Svart Crown- Abreaction (Century Media)

French black/death with a sharper bite than a nice blue cheese...

It’s no secret that over the last 20 years, France has become a hub for talented and inventive extreme metal bands.

Départe - Failure, Subside (Season of Mist)

Some great post-extreme metal is emanating from Tassie.
Release Date: 
14 Oct 2016 (All day)

I’m always on the lookout for quality Australian bands.

Deathcult - Beasts of Faith (Invictus Productions)

Will these old school death merchants take us to class or flunk out?
Release Date: 
26 Sep 2016 (All day)

Another day, another death metal band setting out to recreate the old school Scandinavian sound.

Inquisition - Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith (Season of Mist)

More obscure invocations from these satanic masters....
Release Date: 
26 Aug 2016 (All day)

The mighty Inquisition is back.

Witherscape- The Northern Sanctuary (Century Media)

Witherscape emerges from the northern sanctuary to slay.
Release Date: 
22 Jul 2016 (All day)

Back in 2013 I was quite excited (to put it mildly) to hear of a new project being put together by Dan “The Man” Swanӧ.

Denouncement Pyre- Black Sun Unbound (Hells Headbangers)

The Black Sun has been released.
Release Date: 
22 Jul 2016 (All day)

If we’re talking about real, cross burnin’, corpse paintin’, rootin’ tootin’ black metal then there aren’t too many Australian bands that come to mind quicker than Melbourne’s Denouncement

Kvelertak: Moving Forward By Looking Back

Kvelertak is one of the most distinctive heavy bands of this century. After developing an instantly recognizable sound, they face the unenviable task of changing. Metal As Fuck catch up with vocalist Erlend Hjelvik to talk about those changes and the new album.

Let me take you back to a far off time, June 2010, when Kvelertak seemed primed to take over the world.

Mat Sinner of Primal Fear: Delivering the Goods

Metal As Fuck catches up with the Primal Fear bassist about their new album and upcoming Australian tour....

Ah, you have to love the trusty emailer, the interview format context forgot. A place where you find yourself not only lost in translation, but quite often lost in the junk folder too.

Be'lakor: Readying the Vessels

"The album acknowledges how we are pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things..."

Be’lakor can be counted among some of Australia’s most venerated metal exports.
