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 ...

The dog days of August are almost upon us and, man, this parrot is wiltin’. Anyway, not too much for me to get excited about this time around, but you know, read for yourself and find out. "Consistent" is a good word to describe OVERKILL’s White Devil Armory. I mean, this band DOES change, and they’ve been through a lot in their career -- changing times, age, members leaving -- but ...

Ok, Happy Fourth of July. You know, like, it’s  that day and all. GOATWHORE release Constricting Rage of the Merciless. Let’s not really discuss the title, as I don’t know what it means. Produced by Erik Rutan, this definitely has a full sound, full of clarity and definition without losing any teeth (or beak, in this case). There are your usual things here that are native to a ...

Sometimes it’s really hard to do this column here, you know? There’s just nothing I want to crap on, or it’s generic, or it’s a well-known band that everyone knows will be good. Looks like it’s a noise rock kind of week. GODFLESH release Decline and Fall on Avalanche, and I gotta say, I beaking love it. It’s Godflesh all right, hearkening back to the Streetcleaner days. None of the ...

Looks like there's some stuff worth talking about. Could it be? Two columns in a row? So, you leave Carcass, start a successful band, your ex-members make a comeback and kill it, and your singer quits. Where to now? ARCH ENEMY answer that with War Eternal. There seemed to be a lot of hurdles to overcome, and they at least put out an Arch Enemy record.  Never one of my favorites, their version ...
