Filthy Music Review - Spire - Entropy

Spire - Entropy

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Back in June The Lair of Filth brought you details of Spire’s debut full length which is now close to its release via Iron Bonehead Productions.  Due to the high standard of music featured on ‘Entropy’ I thought it only fitting to review this highly anticipated album and also bring you a track stream. Coming from Queensland in Australia Spire has maintained a shroud of secrecy since their inception in 2007, keeping details of membership etc. minimal.

Exclusive Interview and Demo Stream - Hegemony - Demo MMXVI

Hegemony is an extreme black/death metal group that was formed in Birmingham, Alabama, in 2015. Their music has drawn comparisons to the likes of Diocletian and Revenge and with their Demo MMXVI  due for re-release via U.K. label Goatprayer Records in the coming weeks I thought it was time to try and find out a little more about this secretive group.

Filthy Music Review - Oniricous - La Caverna de Fuego.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Oniricous is a Spanish Death Metal band that performed under the name Ghül from 2005-2011 then as Oniricous from 2011 onwards. Their first release under the name Oniricous was debut full length Ritos Diabólicos which was released on CD by Razorback Recordings in April 2013. Ritos Diabólicos was very well received, so well received that it prompted Spanish label Equinox Discos to release a vinyl version in June 2015. It was on release of this version the band first came to my attention, thanks to Eduardo from Equinox who was kind enough to send me a promotional copy. I was very impressed with Oniricous on first listen; Ritos Diabólicos is a very strong album and fully deserved the vinyl release from Equinox Discos

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...
