Look no further as that time has come. The trio have come up with some truly powerful and at times frightening material here on All Hell’s Martyrs, as they harness their inner Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Saint Vitus, and Cirith Ungol with a sound that is sure to raise the eyebrows of many metal fans.

Album of the Day: Morbus Chron – Sweven

Posted on Friday, February 28th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Heavy Metal: Morbus Chron’s sophomore album Sweven sounds like it came from a completely different band than the one that wrote Sleepers In The Rift. Thing is, there hasn’t been a radical lineup change; the same guys that did that album composed this one. Almost nothing […]
