DEATHRATTLE PODCAST ~ Dirty Dozen (May 2022)

 Deathrattle Podcast's 'Best Of' releases for May 2022

WO FAT ~ The Singularity

Musically, The Singularity ventures outside Wo Fat's well-establish blues-based paradigm, keeping all the heaviness but also tapping into some 70’s fusion influences and more open jamminess.

FAMYNE ~ II: The Ground Below

Famyne combine elements of Doom, Stoner, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Psychedelia, Prog and Grunge, and are well known for their hypnotic, energetic live performances.

MORTAL DISMAY ~ Hatred Ahead

Thrash with an Exodus like groove and Slayer like hate.

CHURCH OF DISGUST ~ Weakest Is The Flesh

Featuring eight tracks of ungodly heaviness and the most efficient songwriting around (and a haunting interlude and outro), Weakest is the Flesh is undoubtedly CHURCH OF DIGUST's strongest statement to date. DEATH METAL OR DIE!!! 

WRITHING SHADOWS ~ Writhing Shadows

After a slew of EPs, a demo, and a split, Alabama wardogs WRITHING SHADOWS are finally ready to unleash the full assault.


Besvärjelsen (Swedish for “Conjuring”) formed in 2014 by members out of bands like Dozer, Greenleaf, Afgrund, Lastkaj and V.
However rooted in Doom you will find traces of Progressive Metal, Punk, Folk, and simply old classic Rock n’ Roll that has been carefully weaved together to a sound as heavy as it’s sophisticated.

HOREHOUND ~ Collapse

Pittsburgh’s Horehound distills a potent blend of snarling riffs, morose melodies, and rhythmic intricacy that owes equally to doom metal convention and goth/dark ambient atmosphere

ELUSIVE GOD ~ Trapped In A Future Unknown

Fortress of sound equal to the brutal cosmic punch in the face of an ancient disgusting mythological giant awakened from the aeons of eternal sleep by earth-shaking, almost razor-sharp epic riffs

DEMONICAL ~ Mass Destroyer

 "Mass Destroyer" packs a gruesome punch, embodies organic sounding and delivers a truly fiendish experience from well-seasoned old-school death-dealers.

GREY GIANT ~ Turn To Stone

Stoner Rock band from Santander (Spain).

SLOW WAKE ~ Falling Fathoms

Like staring out into the abyss of Lake Erie at sunset on a few hits of acid as the sun burns the water

HEMPRESS ~ Masters Of The Trade

 Hempress delivers heavy, brain melting bass/guitar riffs stuffed with psychedelic influenced lead parts. Lyrical topics going from extra terrestrial beings to murder and drugs, horror and the unknown. Hempress rises from the dead and walks through the smoke in the midst of the night.

COILED AROUND THY SPINE ~ From The Ashes 2022 (Deluxe Edition)

Melodic they said. Well yeah, but most of the melody in this album has been expelled, slashed, battered and bruised, reeling from relentless death metal punishment and lacerating guitar solos.

This album was originally released in 2021 but has now been remixed and remastered, with extra songs, 'Like Hell' (Loudness cover) and 'Bite The Pain'  (Death cover)

VIZARESH ~ In The Depths (2019)

Coagulated riffs, clotted vocals. This is stomach churning Brazilian death metal.

First released in 2019 and now Name Your Price on Bandcamp.
