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.
