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. These dudes are very much a staple of the death metal scene in Ireland, heck they’re a part of pretty much every scene in Ireland, being stuck on the line up of just about every respectable gig that...

Winterfylleth the divination of antiquity review

Surely this is the sound of the wind and the rain on a filthy November afternoon, soaking you as you walk the coastal path, the sound of burning leaves and deadwood in Autumn, the smoke flavouring the air, the sound of sunlight piercing the heavy and swollen clouds, the sunlight and shadows racing and tumbling across the slopes and fields of the moors, the lakes blazing in...
