Autopsy: Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves
4 out of 5 skulls

Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves

Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves is the latest, grisly slab of death metal mayhem from the legendary Autopsy. Ever since the band’s return with the stellar […]

Eyehategod: Eyehategod
4.5 out of 5 skulls


Drug abuse. Prison sentences. Natural disasters. Anything and everything that a band can go through in their well documented 25 year history, Eyehategod has certainly […]

Serpentine Path: Emanations
4 out of 5 skulls

Serpentine Path

Serpentine Path’s debut, self-titled album was crushingly methodic and evil, marching along at the pace of rigor mortis. Their sophomore effort continues down the same […]

The Satanist

It’s been five long years since Behemoth released Evangelion. In that time, lead growler Nergal was diagnosed with cancer. Not only did he beat the […]

Cripple Bastards
Nero In Metastasi

One would think that after nearly three decades of pummeling ear drums and spitting in the face of convention that, perhaps, it’s time to mellow […]

Godhunter: City of Dust
4.25 out of 5 skulls

City of Dust
