Filthy Music Review - 'Voyag3r: Doom Fortress'


Voyag3r – Doom Fortress (2014)

Battle Chamber Music/ Bellyache Records

Review by Jude Felton

We’re going to take a ride with Cabbie. Along the way we’ll be passing through a ruined and desolate New York City, a ravaged Florida, where only the undead walk and we might even make a stop at Tech Noir. Why? Because Detroit’s Voyag3r (pronounced Voyager 3) are back and they are once again tapping into the coolest sounds that came out of the 80s, and even the late 70s.

Sidious is a blackened Death Metal group from the UK that’s set to unleash its debut album via Kaotoxin Records as one of their top priority releases this November. Revealed in Profane Splendour follows hot on the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed EP, “Ascension to the Throne Ov Self".

Filthy Music Review - 'Fen: Carrion Skies'


Fen – Carrion Skies (2014)

Code666/Aural Music

Review by Jude Felton

Fen’s previous album, 2013’s Dustwalker, was quite an exceptional album. It was one of those albums that bore many a repeated play, and was just perfect for long autumnal drives in the Filthmobile. So, with that in mind I thought it would be a tough task for the UK band to top it, as is often the case when a band releases such a good album. I suspect though that Fen are not the sort of band that worry too much about these sort of things, yet with Carrion Skies they have delivered easily one of the best albums of the year.

Filthy Music Review from beyond the Grave - 'Cemetery Filth: Screams from the Catacombs'


Cemetery Filth – Screams from the Catacombs EP (2014)

White Ship Records/Unspeakable Axe

Review by Jude Felton

Way back at the dawn of time, January 2014 to be exact, in deepest, darkest Tennessee, Cemetery Filth were spawned. In the short time since then, aside from giving themselves the rather wonderful moniker, they have delivered this three track EP.
