At The Gates at war with reality review

Like some gargantuan, mythological beast of melancholy, destined to roam the earth, wailing with grief and convulsing with despair. It destroys habitats and men with nary a thought to it's own powers of destruction, deaf to the screams of those being obliterated, without the knowledge or awareness of it's own capabilities. At The Gates have an awe-inspiring ability to create music with a...

Zom Flesh Assimilation cover

“For fuck’s sake, get over it” the Irish are muttering; much like St. Patrick’s Day and Guinness, the English are enthralled by the murky death metal sound of Zom and have been hankering after another release since their demo came out last year.

Their trick, and the reason they've been so relatively successful, is that they...

Voices London review

Voices are formed from the ashes of Akercocke by certified badmen David Gray (drummer extraordinaire), Peter Benjamin (Guitar & Vocals) and Sam Loynes (Guitar), the line up being completed by Daniel Abela (Bass).

Considering that ¾ of the band are from Akercocke voices managed to take most people I know by surprise with their debut...
