Rivers Of Nihil- Where Owls Know My Name…..Best of 2018?

  Rivers of Nihil has been an underrated force in death metal in the modern age.  Their last album “Monarchy” was a modern day death metal masterpiece with sweet artwork to boot. What makes the Pennsylvania natives stand out more and more is their lack of concern what […]

Nyktomorph

  Nyktomorph is an extreme metal band from Buffalo, New York.  These guys are so heavy…..it’s like they can’t get any heavier.  They have a combined black metal and death metal influence.  Sonically they’re absolutely blistering…..I love their vocals.  Very raw, and very energetic. The band has a […]

The tech death freaks have returned with a sophomore release that may have just topped their debut Immortal.  Now if you have the cash to buy a watered down coffee, you can buy your favorite bands music to keep them up and running especially if it’s direct not through […]

Thoren- Brennenburg

I stumbled across this band recently and figured I’d spread the musical love about these dudes.  They’re a 3 piece instrumental groove/death metal band from Michigan. First thing that hit me is how creepy the music is and compliments the crazy album cover almost makes you feel like […]
