Filthy Music Review - Temple Nightside - The Hecatomb.

Temple Nightside - The Hecatomb

Review by Trevor Proctor.

The most recent release from Temple Nightside was the superb ‘Call of the Maelstrom’ split LP which they shared with fellow underground heavyweights Vassafor in February 2015. Released by Iron Bonehead Productions ‘Call of the Maelstrom’ was an outstanding LP with both bands on absolute top form and on reviewing it I had no hesitation whatsoever in awarding it 10/10 along with second place on my list of top 25 albums from 2015

Three way split review - Lord of Depression, Infernal Sacrament + Tetragrammacide - 'Atomic Regurgitation from the Three Mouths of Humanicidal Hate.'

Lord of Depression, Infernal Sacrament + Tetragrammacide - 'Atomic Regurgitation from the Three Mouths of Humanicidal Hate.'

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Split releases are always a great means of discovering and hearing new music from bands you may or may not heard of previously – you know the score with them, fairly often there’s at least one band you may not have heard much from in the past. This was recently the case for me when I ordered the CD version of this split from exceptional label and distro, Cyclopean Eye Productions earlier this year. I discovered Tetragrammacide when they released their harsh yet brilliant EP, ‘Typhonian Wormholes: Indecipherable Anti-Structural Formulæ’ via Iron Bonehead Productions in October of last year and since then I was able to source this split along with Tetragrammacide’s ‘Tetragrammacidal Oration’ demo tape from Cyclopean Eye

Sarcofago to reissue their classic Rotting EP.

No one can deny the influence Sarcofago have, and will continue to have, on our underground. Whilst I can't and have no intention of knocking any of their recordings the Rotting EP remains one of their best and most influential releases. The last time Rotting was issued on CD was as far back as 2002 when it came out via Cogumelo Records. The unbelievable news for us is this September the Rotting EP will be reissued via Greyhaze Records and the even better news is this reissue will come with an exclusive live DVD - interested? Read on for some of the best news you'll hear this year...

Filthy Music Review - Hellsworn - Repulsive Existence EP.

Hellsworn - Repulsive Existence EP.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Based in the U.K.'s Midlands Death Metal band Hellsworn has been in existence since 2010. With a line up consisting of members / ex members of bands such as She’ol (שְׁאוֹל), Scythian, Qrixkuor and Funeral Throne there’s no doubting Hellsworn’s pedigree and experience within the U.K. underground.

Filthy Music Review - Grey Heaven Fall - Black Wisdom.

One of the joys that comes with reviewing music is from time to time you come across bands and music you may not have heard of as promptly were it not for the promotional email hitting your inbox. In today’s digital age, which also happens to be an age of relevant austerity, physical promo copies are few and far between but now and again I’ll be contacted by a label or band looking to send physical CD's or vinyl for review. It’s happened a few times so far and I’m extremely grateful to every label that has ever sent me any form of their music. This happened recently when Russian label Aesthetics of Devastation got in touch to see if they could send me their most recent release, “Black Wisdom” by Grey Heaven Fall who come from the Podolsk region of Moscow.

New album release information - Spire - Entropy.

Spire set release for new album, Entropy, from Iron Bonehead Productions.

Press release by N.T.B.

Iron Bonehead Productions has set August 19th as the international release date for Entropy, the highly anticipated debut album of Australia's Spire. Shrouded in a mystique as shadowy and ominous as their moniker, Spire have seen a slow 'n' steady evolution since their formation in 2007, releasing a self-titled EP in 2010 and then the murky 'n' majestic Metamorph EP in 2011. So enthralled by the fathomless expanses of the latter, Iron Bonehead saw fit to release Metamorph on 12" vinyl before the close of 2014. The stage was thus set for Spire's inevitable debut album...and at last, it arrives in Entropy.
