Horror N’ Gore connoisseurs BONE GNAWER returns to apex form with the band’s much-anticipated sophomore full-length record Cannibal Crematorium! The album will be released July 10 on Pulverised Records. The album will be available on CD and limited edition gatefold vinyl, both of which can be pre-ordered at this location.

Once again led by Death Metal legend Kam Lee (ex-MASSACRE, ex-MANTAS, etc) and with the prior emphasis  on composing (dead) catchy riffs that plant the hooks in deep, the music of Cannibal Crematorium is impossible to dislodge from memory.

Old School Swedish Death Metal legends WOMBBATH will release Downfall Rising, their first album in 22 years. The album will be released jointly in North America on Dark Descent and Pulverised  August 21. Pulverised will release the album in all other territories on August 7. Downfall Rising follows the 1993 classic: Internal Caustic Torments.

New song “Underneath the Rotten Soil” is now streaming HERE. An album teaser is also available at this location or below:

Downfall Rising was mixed by Jeramie Kling and mastered by James Murphy (Disincarnate, ex-Death, ex-Testament, ex-Obituary, etc).  The revamped WOMBBATH lineup is anchored by sole remaining member/guitarist Håkan Stuvemark (Skineater) and also includes vocalist/bassist Jonny Petterson (Ashcloud, Syn:drom), guitarist Al Riglin and drummer Henrik Åberg. Drumming on the album itself was performed by Infernaeon/The Absence member Jeramie Kling. Taylor Nordbert (Infernaeon) guested on guitar as well.

Having been around since 1990, Wombbath was without a doubt part of the legendary Swedish Death Metal scene that came to influence bands from around the world, and still is to this day. After a few releases including the classic full length Internal Caustic Torments, they disbanded. After years of playing in different bands (In thy dreams, Skineater etc.) original member Håkan felt the urge to play buzz saw driven Death Metal, the way it was done back in the day, again. When Håkan re-animated Wombbath, the thought was to record a new album with the use of old friends and musicians he knew would be able to channel his vision of what Wombbath is and to keep it purely as a studio project.

Along the journey Håkan picked up Jonny as a full-time member and the duo realized that this album was becoming something too big to keep as a studio project. So a search for a full line-up began. After a few hit and misses he finally found the right people to join him and take this rumbling Death Metal monster to its fullest potential. Wombbath has been around since 1990 and this is where the real journey begins!

PSYCHOMANCER “Inject The Worms” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

Posted in album reviews, Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on May 24, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Psychomancer - Inject The Worms - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #05PMODM

4 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


PSYCHOMANCER have released their new studio album, Inject The Worms, back on April 7th, 2015, via Orchestrated Misery Recordings. Proving that the Midwest is and (hopefully) forever will be a nurturing habitat for underground Death Metal, Psychomancer have unleashed 6 songs of terror that I have embraced, within my Metal world, like a long-lost and cuddly goat. I don’t know where my dependency to Death Metal came from; perhaps it is due to my lifetime infatuation with monsters Or maybe due to my 8 years of Parochial schooling back during the 70’s? All the same, I am a content fan of Death Metal, due to the overwhelming choices of bands and albums that are out in the world today.

Inject The Worms is my first introduction to Psychomancer; this band originally formed around 1998. What always catches my eye first, when shopping around for Death Metal are the album cover’s artwork. The more grotesque the Death Metal cover art doesn’t always equate to the best music heard within, in my Metal opinion. The cover art for Inject The Worms (see above) is both old-school and morbidly fun for my taste; it’s not insanely gut spilling nor repulsive. The less is more mantra for cover art kicks right in here, folks. Thus, I really dig this album cover art.

Psychomancer - promo band pic - 2015 - #0524MOPDM

The 2015 band lineup for Psychomancer are: founding member Duston Bullard on bass and vocal duties, with new members Corey Blackstad on drums and guitarist Curt Hutchison on rhythm and lead guitars. Every delicious sonic nuance in which die-hard Death Metal fans look for is readily heard on Inject The Worms. Quaking bass, blast beats, earth shattering double bass and sadistic growling vocals; with plenty of psycho speed-driven guitar and rhythmic magic. Doom infested riffing and sludgy bass chugging is featured on this album as well. The acoustic guitar intro and haunting chants on Abhorrent Wings Of Decay are both a surprise and successful musical elements; too often Death Metal bands can become too predictable. I love it when a Death Metal band can add that something extra to an album.

I honestly believe every fan of Six Feet Under, Obituary, Suffocation and Cannibal Corpse will be licking their chops while listening to this Psychomancer album. Hell, I sure did. What does licking your chops mean anyways? Onward we go. There are melodic Death Metal moments to hear on this album too, with the intro to the title track being a very good candidate to point out. Inject The Worms has proven to be a winner for my Death Metal tastes and it’s all about these 6 songs not sounding alike. I can not say enough about the hell-raising vocals of Duston Bullard and with the overall musicianship from Psychomancer. Inject The Worms is an album I very highly recommend to all my Death Metal brethren. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Inject The Worms – Track Listing:

01 – In Shackles Insane

02 – Just Another Victim

03 – Inject The Worms

04 – Bastards Burn

05 – Abhorrent Wings Of Decay

06 – Chant Of The War Demons

DEIVOS “Theodicy” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on May 23, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Deivos - Theodicy - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #DMMO

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


On February 15th, 2015, Poland’s DEIVOS released their fourth studio album of Death Metal savagery, via Selfmadegod Records. The album is Theodicy and it’s 6 songs that are damn decent to listen to. Guttural vocals, heavy-duty grooves and melodic guitars (yes, melodic) are showcased in a very big way by DEIVOS; with also an impressive nod to some splendid Speed Metal on the axes too.

The drumming and percussions are so good to listen to that it’s downright supernatural. I have the drummer’s name as Wizun and he is a sonic blast of fireworks behind the kit! This is drumming that sets DEIVOS apart from many other Death Metal bands, with fills aplenty and entertaining as hell. Please note, I’m not talking about copious noise and drumming that is so fast you cannot follow the beats.

Vocalist Hubert is a monster treat to listen to and an obvious student of old-school Death Metal. Each song has its own identity; no song on this album falls victim to its own chaos or redundancy, there is songwriting of substance here on Theodicy, my Metal brethren! Originating back in 1997, with lineup changes along the way, DEIVOS has impressively planted themselves within the tier of Death Metal bands that are to be taken serious; for both perseverance and talent, in my Metal opinion. In other Metal words, DEIVOS is no overnight sensation of a Death Metal band.

Overall, this is a very, very strong release from DEIVOS, from beginning to end. DEIVOS truly has kicked my Death Metal loving ass with this album. The album cover artwork is a work of Metal beauty; this is the stuff I want to visually take in. Death Metal and Black Metal fans should be on the lookout for this DEIVOS album. Support DEIVOS and buy Theodicy. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Theodicy – Track Listing:

1. Theodicy, 2. El Shaddai, 3. Ochlocracy, 4. Mandatory Mayhem, 5. Amor Sui, 6. Parasite

Cryptopsy - classic band logo - 2015 - #0523CMO

Three years after unleashing their acclaimed self-titled album, Cryptopsy will release a series of EPs entitled The Book of Suffering. This approach will allow the band to put out new music more often while remaining true to their standards of quality.

After being on a record label for their entire career, Cryptopsy decided to go independent in 2012. Supported by their fans, Cryptopsy distributed and sold thousands of albums across the globe and had the opportunity to tour Japan, Western and Eastern Europe, the UK, South America, Scandinavia and Canada. They are now embarking on a crowd funding campaign that will allow them to give their fans more in terms of videos and enhanced live show production.

Cryptopsy’s crowdfunding campaign is open with exclusive t-shirts, girly tank tops, hoodies, CDs and vinyls. In addition to the more traditional merchandise, they are offering signed Flo Mounier cymbals, online lessons with each band member, guest performances and a song mix by their guitarist and sound engineer Chris Donaldson.

For those who are interested in memorabilia, they are offering stage banners that have been used since 2012. Cryptopsy’s $20,000 goal will fund the recording, mixing and mastering of The Book of Suffering Tome 1, as well as produce artwork, a music video and stage banners. Additional rewards such as a play-through video, a tour documentary and more music will be unlocked for all backers if they surpass their goal.

Cryptopsy have stated: “We hope that every extreme metal fan will be exposed to The Book of Suffering Tome 1.  We are extremely proud of the material; it is some of the most brutal, technical and fresh music we have ever created.”
