Filthy Music Review - 'Skelethal: Death Manicvs Revelations'

Skelethal - Deathmanicvs Revelation  (2014)

Iron Bonehead Productions

Review by Trevor Proctor

Skelethal are French two piece death metal band created in early 2012 by Gui Haunting and Jon Whiplash, both members of French thrash band Infinite Translation; they released a demo called “Morbid Ovation” during Summer 2012 to widespread acclaim at the same time attracting attention from leading labels such as Iron Bonehead who they are currently signed to. Deathmanicvs Revelation will be Skelethal’s debut MLP for the excellent, and ever productive Iron Bonehead; a label at the heart of the recent plethora of outstanding releases within the sub-genre.

Filthy Music Review - 'Triptykon: Melana Chasmata'

Triptykon – Melana Chasmata (2014)

Century Media

Review by Jude Felton

Over the past three decades the Swiss genius that is Tom Gabriel Warrior has helped create, shape and influence virtually all facets of extreme metal. From the early days of the once derided Hellhammer, through the years of the avante garde Celtic Frost, up until the present day with his current band, Triptykon. It’s not always been pretty and he is certainly not a man who is afraid to experiment, but above all he is a true pioneer.
