The hounds of war have been unleashed in the form of The Black Sorcery, a Canadian black/death machine of destruction whose debut record ‘And the Beast Spake Death from Above’ is another barrage in the unending war for extremity. It is out now on Krucyator Productions.

The opener ‘Ancient Dialects of Wind’ is one of the densest, nastiest sounding tracks I’ve had the pleasure of listening to this year. The vocals are bowel rattling, the riffing is ragged and raw and the atmosphere is one of dread and darkness. Add a maddening solo and some brutal drumming and this is an instant watermark. Guttural, brutal death metal vocals continue to stalk the whole record, through the pulsing ‘Frost Veined’ and the sadistic ‘Incursion’. In fact, ‘And the Beast Spake Death from Above’ is definitely one of the most intense records you’ll come across in 2018.

The Black Sorcery have delved deep into the darkest recesses of black/death metal to mine this particular seam, but the results are visceral; ravening like some monstrous beast, this is a record of malicious ideas and sickening brutality. So, pretty fucking excellent!

This striking French black metal debut from Infernal Blast isĀ  a torrent of violent, dark war metal. ‘Wolves Elitism Speech’ has no agenda other than to tear you apart from the ears down, and is another example of how far one man bands have come from badly produced bedroom acts. The cassette is out on 17th November through War Arts Productions.

Opener ‘Destruction Process’ is a vicious, barrelling nightmare of a track, with an eruption of blastbeats peppering a murky and dense guitar attack. This style continues undaunted throughout, from the carnage of the short ‘No Redemption No Remorse’ to the unremitted barbarism of ‘Wolf Hunting’. There isn’t a lot of room for variation but in a seventeen minute release you don’t need it. The creepy samples provide respite enough between the kind of metal that personifies how life is going; bleak, barbaric and dehumanising. ‘Wolves Elitism Speech’ has no care for you, it merely provides a dirty window into our future.

Infernal Blast have a bright future. Well, bright like a nuclear holocaust bright, as their music is apocalyptic, visceral and comes from the primal instincts of man for violence and savagery. ‘Wolves Elitism Speech’ claws and slavers at you, and it is ready to be unleashed on the wider world.
