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.

ALBUM REVIEW: Arx Atrata – The Path Untravelled

Atmospheric black metal is a difficult thing to do right.

ALBUM REVIEW: Solitary – XXV

SOLITARY’s latest EP XXV is, for me, the perfect blend of SLAYER and Dave Mustaine era METALLICA. The four piece from Preston consists of Rich Sherrington (Vocals, Guitar), Andy Mellar (Lead Guitar), Gaz Harrop (Bass), and Roy Miller (Drums). A personal favourite track is Requiem. It’s a brutally aggressive track that sets the tone in … Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: Solitary – XXV
