I’m not really sure what to make of this week. Just seems like it’s pretty dry out there lately. Hopefully that new Autopsy or Misery Index will be out soon. THE OATH S/T is released on Rise Above. They basically pump the fact that this is a female-fronted band; not that it matters to me, but hey, people will read this review because of it. Onto the music: This is that retro, sorta occult ...

OK, I know, its GOT to get better. There’s not too much I found this week, so I guess I’ll get into it. Nux Vomica releases the oh-so-crusty Nux Vomica (self-titled, for those of you that aren’t that quick on the uptake) on Relapse.  Calling this just crust would be a little unfair, sure there are elements of Dystopia and His Hero Is gone, but there’s also elements of melodic death, ...

Well, I’ve been reading some of my past reviews, and it seems that some of you want me to review some particular releases. I’m open to this idea; just leave your ideas in the comments. Obviously, I can’t review everything -- Decibel pays me by the word, and the budget for this column is $4.35 biweekly.  I just peck most of these things at random. Well… maybe. Let’s start out with ...

What up, beak freakz?  Notice the “z”? Yeah, I’m going nu-metal; a-parrot-ly it’s making a comeback. Nah, juzt kidding. Did you know there were two bandz named Portal? I did, and I’m going to review one of them. Oof. What time is it? Huh? PORTAL -- no not that one, the one from Sweden -- release For All That Is Damned to Vanish, and, as one might expect, it’s Swedish death ...

For Those About to Squawk: Waldo’s Valentine Pecks of the Week

What’s up, you loveless fucks? As the year rolls along, so do the new releases -- finally, it seems. Here’s my anti-Valentine’s Day rant. Gridlink release Longhena, and this thing is a pecking barn-burner.  Their longest effort to date, this record moves, kicks, and boy does it grind. There is a lot of non-traditional grind on here, hailing back to Jon Chang's previous band, Discordance ...

Still a little slow around here, if you know what I’m pecking about. But let's just dive into it, shall we? Culted release Oblique to All Paths on Relapse.  Culted are a file-sharing kind of group that never really all get into the same room. Amazingly, though, they’ve crafted an angry, nasty ambient drone/black metal/sludge amalgam that seems like they’ve been jamming this in the same ...

Happy New Year, you pecking geeks. There’s not much going on at the end of the year, and not much going on in the beginning of the year either. I know I’ll sound like a mimic over the next few columns stating that again and again, and you know, parrots don’t like to mimic. EXHUMED/IRON REAGAN team up to kill a split on Tankcrimes.  The fact that this is pretty good should not come as a ...

Well, we all know that the year is winding down, so it's that pesky time for end of the year lists. These are in no PECKticular order, so, you know, these are just some of the releases that are a better than fit to line my cage with. Noisem, Agony Defined:  This is thrash played the way it was meant to be played: aggressive and energetic. These kids really know how to kick out the ...

Well, we all know that as the year winds down, so do the releases. This is the time of year when most labels put out compilations or package DVDs to try to grab that last dollar from the consumer.  So, without further ado, here we go. Slams, slams and more slams. Disfiguring the Goddess release Deprive on Decomp.  This was written and performed by one-man maelstrom Cameron Argon. There’s ...

Well, as the year comes closer to ending, the releases are slowing down. Maybe not so much right now, but soon enough, so don’t be surprised if your old boy Waldo starts “pecking”a bunch of stuff he doesn't really like . So, here’s all of the hate that’s fit to beak. Ten years of TOXIC HOLOCAUST. Say it ain’t so. Well, the toxic one, Joel Grind, has released Chemistry of ...
