RIBSPREADER – Meathymns (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

RIBSPREADERMeathymns Vic (2014)Rating: 7/10 Some of you will be disappointed when I state that Ribspreader’s sixth instalment is every bit as Swedish as the last. Yep, these Gamleby-based guys are high on those buzzing, chainsaw riffs, and those guttural vocals which we’ve heard countless times before within the Swedish scene but, and it’s a big […]

FÄULNISSnuff || Hiroshima Cold Dimensions (2014)Rating: 7.5/10 Fäulnis are an unusual band from Germany. Over the years since their 2003 inception, the group have dabbled with some interesting styles of metal – the result being three solid studio albums, the most recent being Snuff II Hiroshima. There’s nothing overly technical about Fäulnis, but they create […]

Like so many bands this Stockholm quartet has had its ups and downs over the years, with 1993 seeing the band release their […]

ANCILLOTTI – The Chain Goes On (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

ANCILLOTTIThe Chain Goes On Pure Steel (2014)Rating: 6/10 From its introduction of sci-fi narration and scowling wild cat, Italy’s Ancillotti are merely preparing us for their take on fist-clenching, chest pounding classic heavy metal delivered in the vein of Motörhead. Ancillotti are named after Strana Officina and Bud Tribe vocalist Daniele “Bud” Ancillotti (vocals), who […]

DOOM’S DAY – The Devil’s Eyes (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

DOOM’S DAYThe Devil’s Eyes PRC Music (2014)Rating: 7/10 Canadian metallers Doom’s Day are somewhat of an unknown quantity within the metal realm, something which I find quite alarming considering their exhilarating brand of magical old school metal. With enough creepiness and weight, Doom’s Day should quickly get themselves recognised. With occult metal very much flavour […]

ACHERON – Kult Des Hasses (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

ACHERONKult Des Hasses Listenable (2014)Rating: 8/10 Hellish US metallers Acheron could be considered veterans of the extreme metal scene when one considers that they’ve existed in some form since the late 1980s. It’s also fair to say that in the course of their career Acheron have had more band members than I’ve had hot dinners, […]
