  More details on the new CANCER album, Shadow Gripped. The big news for me is it was produced by SIMON EFEMY (Foel Studios).

His involvement bodes well for a big, clean production. Also learned that Anders Nyström of BLOODBATH put in a guest appearance. Formats: Black vinyl Red…

Nuclear Blast are reviving their old Death …is Just the Beginning death metal compilation series and for anyone old to remember geeking out over the first few installments of this series (before they turned it into video compilations and started putting power metal bands on it) or Roadrunner’s similar At Death’s Door series, it looks like they may be doing it right.

Mercyless tease new album Something wicked this way comes...from the land of wine and cheese.

France’s MERCYLESS don’t get a lot of love, but that’s only because they had a short window of awesomeness before shooting themselves in the foot with an ill-advised genre shift.

At least it did until the band pivoted to a…

If nothing else, perhaps it will turn people on to this solid slab of death clean, well-produced death metal that flew under a lot people’s…
