Venom - 100 Miles To Hell

Now that Xmas is gone, it is safe to see what the almighty VENOM released a few days before 2017 said its last farewell. Yeah, VENOM put together a three-song EP that – hopefully – will be the precursor of a new full length release. So, how do Cronos and Co. sound at the dawn of 2018?

Egonaut - The Omega

You know the feeling when something is so damn familiar but you can't place it? Those first few notes of opening “Initium” from Swedish EGONAUT's fourth full length album “The Omega” remind me of something I used to listen to in the mid '90s but I can't for my life recall what it can be. Although this is far more heavy, it still has similarities with VENUS OUTBACK's “Sodom Is Free”. But when Emil Kyrk's fantastic vocals come in, it leans towards Heavy / Prog Metal. The combination gives something very dark and gloomy.

The Petulant - Dictum

It was really long since I had last dug into an album of the more brutal kind. With the selection of material to work with, I've really moved away from Death & Black Metal these last few years, so I'm definitely a bit rusty when it comes to this genre. Danish THE PETULANT are not. I love it when bands can generate an old-school feel in the music and still have a modern production.

Destructor - Decibel Casualties

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

When cranking up DESTRUCTOR on the stereo, it's perhaps not something innovative you're after. DESTRUCTOR have stuck to their straightforward US Heavy-Thrash-Speed Metal over the years. And why should they abandon such a winning concept? The reasons why I shovel DESTRUCTOR records on the stereo is because I know the music on them will give me an energy-boost and turn that frown upside down. “Decibel Casualties”, DESTRUCTOR's fourth full length album since the start back in 1983 does just that.
