Matheus manages to conjure demons from   Read More …

This dude has been around the pages of Grindthieves.com before, and for good reason. I have done some logo and cover art for him as Sir.Vixx, also reviewed as such here in the past, and recently had the honor of doing the cover art for his first release under his new alias, Roarshok.

It always amazes me what’s lurking out there, in terms of killer music! I don’t even know where I originally copped this, but it came up in my play list tonight and I was absolutely certain it was gonna be some old obscure band well out of print and offline. To my surprise, this is   Read More …

As the release notes so perfectly state: “Pummeling Black/Death Metal executed   Read More …

Really cool new single from Chilean black metal outfit Lapageria Rosea. I first stumbled upon this one man black metal band a couple years ago as a result of a split entitled “Pureza y Caos” with fellow Chilean one man black metal artist Macáes, but it was the Lapageria Rosea material that really stood out to me. Efforts   Read More …
