Trevor Proctor's Top 25 singles, EPs and demos of 2016.



As with 2015 this year has been another exemplary year in terms of releases and keeping this list to 25 has proved even more difficult than previous. You may notice a few releases from 2016 absent from my list, such as Dead Congregation and Sadistic Intent as I'll not get my hands on them until Christmas and of course the new Teitanblood which hasn't been released at the time of writing. Also, the excellent 'Extermination Mass' by Death Worship will feature on my list for 2017 as, despite having a very limited release for the brilliant NWN! V Festival, it's early 2017 when it will have it's full, world wide release.
As with all articles on The Lair of Filth the bands and labels are linked so all you have to do is click on each band or label to be taken straight to their site or Facebook. As always, huge thanks and appreciation to everyone for their support during 2016.

Filthy Music Review - Master of Cruelty - Archaic Visions of the Underworld.





Review by Trevor Proctor.

Swedish label Blood Harvest Records has just released the second full length album from Paraguayan Black/Death/Thrash band Master of Cruelty on LP along with Japanese label Deathrash Armageddon who released a CD version. During 2012 Blood Harvest Records released Master of Cruelty’s debut album, ‘Spit on the Holy Grail,’ on vinyl – a debut album that brought the band a lot of praise and attention and to date has been issued on CD, vinyl and cassette. ‘Spit on the Holy Grail’ was a furious attack of bestial, death influenced black thrash and an album that put the band on the road to underground notoriety.

Filthy Music Review - Bölzer - Hero.





Review by Trevor Proctor.

From Zurich in Switzerland Bölzer has been creating and building extremely strong support within the underground since their inception in 2008. They are undoubtedly one of the most unique, and most important, bands to grace our underground in recent years; a duo that uses the simplest ingredients of voice, guitar and drums yet somehow manage to craft one of the most destructive and dense sounds out there.
