Consummation- Ritual Severance (Invictus Productions)

Is this ritual worth the effort?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there’s something in the water in Brisbane.

Svart Crown- Abreaction (Century Media)

French black/death with a sharper bite than a nice blue cheese...

It’s no secret that over the last 20 years, France has become a hub for talented and inventive extreme metal bands.

Départe - Failure, Subside (Season of Mist)

Some great post-extreme metal is emanating from Tassie.
Release Date:

The Chaos Raids tour hits Sydney and unsurprisingly... chaos ensues.

1349 is one of those bands where the tag “underrated” is more than appropriate.

Rotting Christ- Rituals (Season of Mist)

Rotting Christ is back with a brand new set of rituals.
Release Date: 
12 Feb 2016 (All day)

Rotting Christ is a hard band not to like (unless you’re Dave Mustaine). They’re also a band that’s hard-pressed to not rest on their laurels.

Black Twilight Circle - Desert Dances and Serpent Sermons (Iron Bonehead/The Ajna Offensive)

Black metal Satan in a stetson and spurs...
Release Date:

Those boundary-pushing fellows of the Black Twilight Circle have once again blown my tiny mind with Desert Dances and Serpent Sermons, making me re-evaluate what constitut

Abbath, Ruins, Gods of Eden, The Manning Bar, Sydney, 16/10/2015

Abbath leads the hordes to war in the battle of Oz
