ALBUM REVIEW: Architectural Genocide – Cordyceptic Anthropomorph

When I heard the name of this band and their album, I thought it would be a good listen but don’t judge a book by its cover. The artwork is eye-catching and makes you wonder if you entered into an S&M dungeon and the theme is artwork by the late HR Giger; either way it … Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: Architectural Genocide – Cordyceptic Anthropomorph

ALBUM REVIEW: Dakesis – Fractures

Birmingham will always be on the map, thanks to being the birthplace of the metal scene. As industry boomed so did the genre.

ALBUM REVIEW: Virocracy – Irradiation

Somethings in life have a weird degree of irony to them, and this is one of them. A few weeks ago, I was given this release to review and I thought “Hey, that’s a cool name.

ALBUM REVIEW: Torchia – The Coven

Hailing from melodeath friendly Finland, TORCHIA formed in 2010. Since then have released two demos and an album entitled Of Curses And Grief back in 2017.
