EXTINCTION OF MANKIND - Storm of Resentment

(review) EXTINCTION OF MANKIND – Storm of Resentment LP

EXTINCTION OF MANKIND have been around since 1992, so they are veterans of the UK punk.  They started when others finished and when time passed (20 something years) and I get the chance to hear their fourth upcoming full length album, I realise they are one of the very few… Keep Reading

Thrash metal on SANCTUS PROPAGANDA!  Yes!  And there are very good reasons for that.  PHRENETIX are a fairly young band operating within the frames of the DIY and underground thrash and punk scene and their approach to music and lifestyle suggests PHRENETIX is just more than music and headbanging. They… Keep Reading

CALM THE FIRE / THE DEAD GOATS

(review) CALM THE FIRE / THE DEAD GOATS – split 12”EP

These two Polish bands are at the moment top league when it comes to bridging some gaps between punk and metal. CALM THE FIRE take no prisoners.  They blast through your head with brutal crusty guitars, mincing drums and very high octane tempo.  You will find many elements in their… Keep Reading
