MUSIC FEATURE: Five Minutes With… Spiritworld

Death/thrash metal upstarts Spiritworld have been causing quite a stir in the metal world with the release of the second album 'DEATHWESTERN'.

We managed to catch up with the band to discuss their roots, their ambitions and what lies ahead for them.

ALBUM REVIEW: Obituary – Dying of Everything

The chances are if you are a fan of death metal in any of its many guises then you have at least heard of Obituary. The Floridan quintet have been sitting upon the precipice of the genre since their inception back in the early 1980s and have been firing on all cylinders since their reformation back in 2003. In the height of the pandemic, brothers John and Donald Tardy would lock themselves away, rejuvenating their beloved Redneck Studios and putting together the foundations that would then form their eleventh album 'Dying of Everything'.

Now, in 2022, the Austrian hellraisers are back with one of their finest outings to date with 'The Devils'.

However, if you ever saw fit to doubt them then that is totally unforgivable. As true as the day is long, Municipal Waste are a band that are incapable of dropping a dud - and 'Electrified Brain' is no different.

Deaf Havana are a band that have changed and grown with every release and have never shied away from making big alterations to their sound.

ALBUM REVIEW: Cancer Bats – Psychic Jailbreak

This is a band who has seen it all, ridden every wave and have continued to deliver a ridiculously high standard of output for almost two decades at this point. Some things are certain in life… You live, you die and Cancer Bats rock with the best of ‘em. Here's what we thought of the band's seventh album, 'Psychic Jailbreak'...
