Filthy Music Review and Track stream - Porta Daemonium - Serpent of Chaos


Porta Daemonium - Serpent of Chaos.


Review by Trevor Proctor.

Underground metal from South America features on a fairly regular basis here at The Lair of Filth as it’s very rare a promo referencing South America that disappoints in any way. Chile is a country that’s contributed its share of bands to South America’s legacy with Pentagram, Hellish and Oraculum being only a few of the many bands hailing from there which have graced our speakers in recent times.

Necroblood - Collapse of the Human Race.


Review by Trevor Proctor.

The French underground has been very productive of late, bringing us some of the best music around with the likes of Skelethal, Cadaveric Fumes, Impure Ziggurat and Ritualization being just a few examples – with Iron Bonehead Productions releasing music from three of these bands in recent times. Once again Iron Bonehead Productions, in association with Amor Fati Productions, is set to bring us music from a fantastic French band in the form of Necroblood.

Filthy Music Review and Track Stream - Ascended Dead - Abhorrent Manifestation

Ascended Dead - Abhorrent Manifestation.

Invictus Productions / Dark Descent Records.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Ascended Dead is a band I’ve followed since reviewing their excellent tape, ‘The Advent’ back in May 2015, impressed by the band I also got their ‘Arcane Malevolence’ 7” EP on the back of how good ‘The Advent’ is. Ascended Dead is based in San Diego, California and formed in 2011 to play dark and chaotic Death Metal. The band consists of four members, three of which have been in the band since its inception, and all of which have significant experience in other bands within the underground.

Filthy Music Review - Holocausto - War Metal Massacre.



Holocausto - War Metal Massacre LP/CD.


Review by Trevor Proctor.

South America’s influence both past and present on underground music is second to none, the continent is well known for its barbaric and primitive style of music, a sound mimicked by many but achieved by very few. This is also the case for Brazil which has spawned its fair share of extreme bands that continue to shape and influence the sound of extreme metal worldwide. Initially formed in the mid-eighties Holocausto played a pivotal role in the creation of a unique style of extreme music that originated in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. This was a harsh, intense and chaotic style of Black Metal popularized by Holocausto along with fellow Minas Gerais band, Sarcófago.

Filthy Music Review and Track Stream - Vomit Angel - Sadomatic Evil.



Vomit Angel - Sadomatic Evil 12" MLP.


Review by Trevor Proctor.

Iron Bonehead Productions has a fierce reputation for bringing us some of the best music the underground has to offer. The label has a knack for spotting and releasing quality music that previously may have had a very limited release; in the process bringing it to a wider audience than it may not have had otherwise. This is definitely the case for ‘Sadomatic Evil’ by Vomit Angel which had a limited release on cassette in October 2016 by Headsplit Records from Portland, Oregon. Within the next few weeks Iron Bonehead Productions will release ‘Sadomatic Evil’ on MLP, bringing Vomit Angel’s music to a well-deserved higher level of prominence than previous.

Mutilator was one of the most representative and influential bands of the Brazilian Heavy Metal scene in the 80's and 90's. The band released only two LPs, but these two albums are still considered true references for all who listen to heavy music in the world.
