- If you cut me, I'll bleed metal... Oh wait. That's not good. Jokes aside, I'm the one you'll see at the back of gigs, nodding along, holding the same beer for hours.

Don’t let the quiet piano opener of “Suspended in Animation” fool you, Deity’s self-titled debut record is brutal, exciting and played at a blistering pace.

There’s nothing particularly mind-blowing here, but everything is delivered with an energy and passion that ensures you should have a good time with Irritation no matter your metal preferences.

Across four lengthy tracks Dreadnought takes you on a voyage to the unknown and back. It’s at once calm, relaxing and insane.

Torenritual takes you on a sojourn to the macabre, guiding you through decrepit graveyards and into the tombs of demons all whilst ripping your head off with its intense brutality.

All told, SOiL’s Scream: The Essentials is a decent compilation album with twenty of the band’s best tracks together in a nice package.

The Finnish folk metal masters are back with Two Paths, an album full of power, awesome riffs, and incredible musicianship but lacking in originality.

Oraculum's latest EP Always Higher is a decent slice of death metal. For more info, read our review!

With All Their Might is a brutal, exciting record that uses brute force to keep your head banging for over eight mighty tracks.

If you’re after something dark and unnervingly evil, then Crawl’s latest offering, This Sad Cadav’r, could be for you.

Doom Side of the Moon is a fun take on one of the seminal rock records of all time, giving the whole thing a light doom feel.

5.5 / 10

Moretta’s self-released album, What’s Left Means Nothing, shows promise, but the clean vocals could prove a sticking point.

Prologue may only feature four tracks, but like the seas, this is a record that proves dangerous, powerful and calm.
