Posted on February 24, 2013 | 1 CommentWithin the rather restricted sub genre that is black/thrash metal, it’s hard to stand out from the ravenous, Satan-praising hordes, but an eye-catching name won’t do you any harm and that’s undoubtedly something that LA’s Lightning Swords of Death are in possession of. Of course,...
Posted on July 11, 2012 | No CommentsBlistering slabs of death worshipping metal issue forth on this, Necovation’s second, eponymous work of ancient ritualistic metal.

Doing some research, the one thing that stood out was a bevy of comparisons of this 2003-formed...
Posted on September 25, 2011 | No CommentsHailing from the badass sounding and “damned pits” of Bled, Slovenia, “Xullux”, the debut album from the “spiritual katharsic black death cult” Nephrolith, has put the band on the outskirts of the traditional black metal map. Initially inspired by legendary Swedes Dissection, Nephrolith was brought...
