Recently, a band that goes by the name of Earth Rot has slowly emerged from the shadowy scene of Australia and even though I passed by the name a few years back with other material that they put out, none of it stroke me enough to wait and wonder about it. I’ve seen their logo […]
When playing the band Turmion Kätilöt, which means Midwives of Destruction if I’m correct, on my digital media player at first I thought I had a Finnish black metal act making its debut out of my speakers. I was 50% right because Turmion Kätilöt is indeed hailing from the beautiful country of Finland. But musically […]
Benighted is a Death Grind band from Saint-Étienne, France. Forming in 1998 and releasing their self titled album in 2000, these guys have been at it for a long time and it shows.

With illustrious acts as Gnaw Their Tongues, Aderlating, De Magia Veterium and tons of other illustrious acts you might think that Maurice has enough projects were his sinister and dark creativity can be satisfied with. Nothing is farther from the truth because the creativity of this gifted musician never stands still. With yet another outlet […]
My first aquintance with Iceland’s Zakaz was when the one man black metal project released their EP ‘Unbroken’ in 2019, which left a good enough impression to make a mental note to keep an eye out for this one man act.
