Ok, ok, ok, it’s getting to be the end of the year, so the releases REALLY slow down here. I’m going to just go ahead and get my end of the year list out of the way now, in case you want to get your Xmas shopping on.  If you have a curiosity or have been putting off buying any of these releases, go ahead and get 'em now. EYEHATEGOD- Eyehategod- The last with now-deceased drummer Joey ...

Well, the end of the year doldrums have started upon us. There are some re-releases (HIM, Voivod, Sinister, Samael), but for the most part, the releases are going to slow down quite a bit. SOOO, I’m just going to like pick some stuff at random, and you know, because I’m feeling punchy, I MAY OR MAY NOT listen to these things, so like, if you feel like commenting, PLEASE do; your old boy Waldo ...

So much not thrilling going on this week. I dunno, maybe my beak is sore from all of this typing, I have a (ahem) hunt-and-peck approach to typing, you know… BLOODBATH are releasing Grand Morbid Funeral; get your HM-2 pedals a-ready for the stompin’. It harkens back to the so-called glory days of early death metal, in this case the more Swedish/Sunlight Sound era. This record doesn't ...

Here we go. Mercury is still in retrograde, so you know, a parrot can be moody too. The cavemen of death metal (self-proclaimed), OBITUARY, release Inked in Blood on Relapse. Beginning as a Kickstarter project, this comes out of the gate relatively fast, and then really slows the pace down. Like puts the brakes on for most of the record. The pace really picks back up near the end, and kinda ...

Here we go. Let's just peck it right up. All positive reviews. Hmmm... HORRENDOUS releases Ecdysis. The title refers to the process of molting, and you know I don’t know ANYTHING about that.  Having made some waves in the underground typically makes me more judgmental on a release, and I definitely was, but you know what? I beaking like this.  As the name would imply, this is a nod to ...

WOW, there’s FINALLY some releases trickling in. I’m going to start off with a much maligned genre. Get your slam on! INTERNAL BLEEDING release Imperium, and I gotta say, I’m pecking digging it.  This IS slam metal, something they’ve been known for for years, but there’s more to it than just  pure slamz. I mean, don’t get me wrong: there are some GNARLY pecking breakdowns here, ...

Isn’t this supposed to be a good time of year for releases?  Hmmm… well, there are SOME things. Welcome, oh ye Wizards of Gore. CANNIBAL CORPSE are back at it with A Skeletal Domain.  And what’s to be said about the 12th release by a forerunner in the genre of death metal? Well, if you’re not familiar with Cannibal’s work, then SHAME SHAME; so, like, go check it out. When a band ...

BURZUM has been described as “music to make mortals dream,” and  The Ways of Yore (Candlelight) will do just that, because it’ll put you to sleep. I guess living in France can’t be that cheap; it seems like Varg cranks records out once a year or so. I’m not going to delve into his politics, the fact that he’s a murderer or anything like that. This release is not black metal at all ...

Well, the editors of this told me “if you don’t have anything nice to squawk, don’t squawk anything at all.”So like you’re not going to be able to bear what I have to pecking say about this week’s major release, like can’t peck  it at all, Paul. What time is it? MIDNIGHT release No Mercy for Mayhem, and well, it’s a Midnight record, that’s for sure. They really haven’t ...

Squawk it, I’m not into an intro today. Let’s just get into it, shall we? Now, this will be a difficult one for me to review. It's a little hard to separate people from the music they create at times, but I’m going to give this one a fair peck... or attempt to anyhow. NACHTMYSTIUM’s swansong, The World We Left Behind, comes out and, well, it’s okay.  I really have a hard time ...
