INCIPIENT CHAOSSulphur EP Mortis Humanae Productions (2014)Rating: 8/10 Having only formed in 2014, the debut EP from mysterious quartet Incipient Chaos is a decent slice of French black metal. I expected this to be a rather rushed affair, but this is indeed a well-structured and solid opus which supplies melody, weight and rawness all at […]

MORBIDITYRevealed From Ashes Memento Mori (2014)Rating: 8/10 Playing good old-fashioned, fast death metal, Bangladeshi metallers Morbidity have finally released their long-awaited full-length dose. After a promising demo debut in 2012 (Pits Of Eternal Torment) and then a split project with Exorcised the following year (Impious Conjuration), I was pretty much chomping at the bit to […]

JOHNNY TOUCHInner City Wolves Shadow Kingdom (2014)Rating: 7/10 Who on earth is Johnny Touch, I hear you bellow? Well, it’s a new one on me too but this Australian band is worth a listen if you like classic heavy metal, and it’s really as simple as that. Let’s face it. Back in the 80s there […]

REVENANT – Tundra EP (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

REVENANTTundra EP Self-released (2014)Rating: 8/10 Now I’ve got to say that one of my favourite metal bands over the years was a New Jersey act called Revenant, who released one of my favourite extreme metal albums Prophecies Of A Dying World way back in 1991.

Over the years since their […]

The latest bunch just happens to be Fornicus, who were born out of Kentucky. The reason for […]

CARDINALS FOLLYOur Cult Continues! Shadow Kingdom (2014)Rating: 7/10 There are times when you just want an album to evoke images of childhood, especially a childhood that was spent reading through the yellowing pages of a Dennis Wheatley novel or another H.P.
