"Viige Urh" is Sarke's fifth album and follows the same line as previous albums, although the others are better than this new album (that does not mean that this album is bad). "Dagger Entombed" and "Knifehall" are the best tracks on this album. Although the cover art is very simple, I liked the work done by Terje Johnsen.

Heavy! "Post Self" is the new Godflesh album and this could be the soundtrack to a Terminator movie (or some similar movie) or a Mortal Kombat video game, because the sounds have the same atmosphere. Composed of ten tracks, "Post Self" is a chaotic and futuristic album with a dense/liquid sound. Highlight for the tracks "Parasite", "Mirror Of Finnite Light" e "Be God". Industrial heavyweight, very god!

"Bad Manners" is one of the demos released by Sick Phuck in 2017. Four tracks in less than three minutes. Very funny cover art.

Keretik was born from the ashes of Viimeinen Kollona and "Terra Mater" is their first record. The sound of Keretik is that mix between metal and punk, the singing is in English and Finnish with a strong chorus. My favorite tracks are "Unelma kostosta" and "Prophecy of Hate", both are heavily influenced by Axegrinder. Very good!

Death Toll 80k is a great band! "Step Down" is the new album released in 2017 which has seventeen tracks in fifteen minutes and it all sounds like an explosive discharge with very good lyrics (the title track lyrics explain the cover art image very well). Essentially grindcore, "Step Down" is one of the most brutal and realistic records of 2017. Badass!

Over the last thirteen years, I have heard a lot of Asocial and "Religion Sucks" is one of my favorites records. Twenty five years after releasing the EP "House of Gore", Asocial is back with a fucking record. "Död Åt Kapitalismen" is an aggressive, fast, raw and outspoken album, that is, the energy, fury and the opposition to the system of the old days are present in this. The album has ten tracks and I highlight "Död Åt Kapitalismen", "Krigsbarn", "Paranoians Vansinne" (nice track - this song reminded me of Norwegian band Dishonorable Discharge), "Systemet Felar Ännu" and "Återupprepad Verklighet". With regard to the cover art done by Henrik Gallon, this reminds me of a recent past Soccer World Cup and the Olympics Games held in Brazil in 2014 and 2016, where the posters and graffiti on the walls were against these events and conveyed the same idea as Asocial. "Död Åt Kapitalismen" is a great record and has definitely become one of my favorites. To conclude, a war cry: death to capitalism!

Dödsrit is Christoffer Öster's (ex-Totem Skin) project. This is the first album of the project and you will hear black metal with crust influences. If you like the american band Black Monolith, you will probably like Dödsrit.

Fuck! Plague Widow is a great band! The guys play death/grind that is very sinister and macabre, similar to the blast of machine-gun bullets and bombs falling from the sky on a battlefield stinking of death, reminding me of the Brazilian bands Facada and Expurgo. The songs are very fast and deadly, except "Drowning Within The Abyss" that sounds more like sludge/doom (similar to Napalm Death and Brutal Truth when they did not play fast). "Despair" is unreleased tracks recorded in 2015, however this released in 2017, that is, fifteen minutes of anti-musical misanthropy. Badass!

The Norwegian hardcore/punk scene is full of good bands and Mørkt Kapittel is one them. In this album released in 2017, the guys created cool songs with dark melodies and if you like Wolfbrigade, you will definitely like them. Although the band has released other records, "Usnuelig Ferd" is the first Mørkt Kapittel album. Good!

State of Defiance is a new band from Los Angeles composed of members and ex-members of bands like, Mindrot, Mange, Apocalypse, Destroyed in Seconds, Eat The Living and Temple of Dagon. In the first record that has five tracks, State of Defiance has destroyed organized structures playing aggressive and metalized crust punk with lyrics full of indignities sung by two vocalists (female and male vocals). Really this is very good!

After 34 years, Antisect released a new album, although the band released an EP in 2011, which marked the return of Antisect to the stage. I remember the euphoria this brought the fans. Well, "The Rising Of The Lights" was released in 2017 and this euphoria has turned into disappointment for many people (I still had not listened to the album, but I read several negative comments on Facebook). Ok, I listened to the album several times and I liked it. With only Pete Lyons from the original line-up, "The Rising Of The Lights" is a heavy, contemporary and well-produced album, there is a great similarity to Amebix's latest album "Sonic Mass", including the sound of bands such as Killing Joke, Motörhead and Sepultura. Obviously, "The Rising Of The Lights" is a very different album from "In Darkness, There Is No Choice", but it is still a cool record. Remember that this was released by Rise Above Records (Lee Dorrian is owner of the label). Anyway, it's worth listening to! Antisect: Pete Lyons (vocals/guitars), Joe Burwood (drums) and John Bryson (bass).

Instinct of Survival features four tracks that have already been released in previous records, but these songs sound a bit different (I don't know, but these should be demo versions or have been re-recorded that way for this split EP). Fatum recorded two new, heavy and very good tracks. The cover art is pretty cool, but I don't know who created it.

Dispyt is a new Finnish band and from the first moment I heard their sound, I really fucking liked it! Dispyt plays violent and furious crustcore influenced by Skitsystem with buzzsaw tone guitars (Heavy Metal HM-20 Oliver), drums and bass sound like thunder, this band is really colossal! "Den Ständigt Närvarande Ångesten" is the first Dispyt album released in 2017 with a highlight on the tracks "He e Kört", "Total Alkoholist", "Sommarstaden", "Va Fan Vill Du?", "Mest Bara Van", "Under Hans Givande Hand", "Martyren Själv" e "Den Ständigt Närvarande Ångesten". One thing that I found curious: as I said before, Dispyt is a Finnish band, but they sing in Swedish, since the native home land of these guys speaks both Finnish and Swedish, similar to other cities of coastal regions who typically speak two languages (many thanks Peter Rosvik for the info). This album was recorded, mixed and mastered at Wolfthrone Studios by Owe Inborr. Cover art by Timo Konttinen. Lastly, Dispyt is one of the best upcoming bands in 2017 and made one the best albums of this year. Badass! Dispyt: Juuso Englund (guitar/vocals), Mathias Lillmåns (bass/vocals), Philip Kerbs (guitar/vocals) and Owe Inborr (drums/vocals).

"Intoxicação" is the latest Death From Above record released in 2017. This EP is composed of five tracks that mix d-beat and raw hardcore with a highlight to the songs ''Intoxicação", "Jogos de Guerra" and a Neurose Urbana cover (this is an old band that Glauco played in). Cool!

After five years, Acephalix has returned with a new album called "Decreation". Musically, the band follows the same line made in "Deathless Master", that is, heavy and brutal death metal. The influences of the old American and Swedish death metal scene are present in "Decreation" and this is easily detectable by the ears. Highlight for the tracks "God is Laughing" (nice guitar solo similar to those performed by Trey Azagthoth - Morbid Angel), "Excremental Offerings" and "Decreation". The beautiful cover art was made by Adam Burke. Good!

After a long hiatus, Apocalypse is back! In this split EP, the band detonates three heavy and powerful tracks with a highlight on "WarHammer". If you have never heard of Apocalypse but you like Misery, you will surely like them. On the other side is Extinction of Mankind with only one track (very good), the band ends the musical destruction. Very good!

Autosome: are chromosomes that are not linked to sex and are part of the genetic patrimony of the species. With this idea, Fabiano Pimenta create two tracks in his noise lab, the noises transmit in an abstract way the mysteries of human life. Recommended for people who have calleous ears.

Split EP involving Scottish and Japanese bands. Thisclose continues to make the same kind of music, NWOGNB as they are labeled. Sludge is a new band for me and they play hardcore/punk with metal influences and are the most interesting band on this record.

Mortal War is a new American band and the sound of these guys is a raw and dirty mix of Amebix and Axegrinder. "Gates of Hell" is the first Mortal War demo and this was released in 2017 with four tracks, including an Amebix cover. This demo is very good and Mortal War is one of the best upcoming bands of 2017. Great!

Mais outro show massa da Mayhem e digo que ainda quero um dia. Bom, essa apresentação tem uns sons bem sinistros (samplers), tipo filme de terror, o que deu uma atmosfera bem macabra. O único problema ao meu ver é a mixagem do audio que não é tão boa assim, mas da pra escutar tudo de boa. "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" na íntegra.
Another good Mayhem show and I still want to watch them someday. Well, this presentation has very sinister sounds (samplers), similar to horror movies and this has given the show a more macabre atmosphere. The only problem is the audio mix is not so good, but it's possible to hear everything. "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" in full.
In my opinion, "Come to Grief" is the best album released by Grief and also is one the best and most important records of all times. Come to Grief is the new band of Terry Savastano (ex-Grief) and musically this band follows the beginnings and roots of Grief's earliest records. "The Worst of Times" is composed of four crushing tracks, where the music is ultra heavy and slow with lyrical themes linked to reality, depression, misanthropy, torture, anxiety and the futilities of humanity. We were crawling into the mud of misery and refusing to die hung by the system, Come to Grief drags with heavy chains the coffin of humanity. Doom!

Formed in 1982 and reformulated in 2015 by founder and guitarrist Damien Thompson (Sacrilege, ex-Varukers), Warwound returned with a new line-up consisting of experienced musicians such as Rat (vocals - Varukers, The Vile, Arbitrater, ex-Discharge), Ian Glasper (bass - Decadance Within, Flux of Pink Indians, Freebase, Thirty Six Strategies), Stevie Wingroven (drums - The Vile, ex-Hellkrusher) and created a really explosive album. When I watched a Warwound videoclip at Obscene Extreme Festival I was very excited and my expectation for listening to a studio record was enormous, because the band's presentation was sensational, pure energy and the songs were covers of Varukers and Sacrilege. "Burning The Blindfolds Of Bigots" is Warwound's first album and the sound is different from the first demos. In my opinion, this record is better, because the music has greater impact power, heavier, more aggressive and has variation between speed and cadence. I must also say that Rat is singing furiously, a unique performance. The drummer Stevie also deserves attention, since his beats and double pedals are powerful, allied with the bass of Ian that is quite present in the tracks. Of course, the heavy guitar riffs cutting like a knife is executed by Damien, he dictates the whole rhythm of chaos for sound violence. My favorite tracks are "World Gone Crazy", "Scenebullshitdotcom", "Already Judged", "Silence In The House Of God", "Engrossed In The Killing", "Same Shit Different Day", "The Closing Irony" (Sacrilege cover - with special guest Lynda "Tam" Hughes) and "Let The Truth Speak". The cover art is another brilliant piece done by Andy Lefton (War//Plague and Tau Cross). Man, this album is fucking awesome! To repeat what I have written in other reviews: one of the best records of 2017.

According to Karl Willetts, Memoriam is a band that was formed as a tribute to Martin "Kiddie" Kearns (drummer from Bolt Thrower who died 2015). With this idea, Karl joined forces with Frank Healy (bass - Sacrilege, ex-Benediction, ex-Cerebral Fix), Andrew Whale (drums - ex-Colostomy, ex-Bolt Thrower) and Scott Fairfax (guitars - Benediction [live], ex-Cerebral Fix) and created an album that is ultra heavy and magnificent, in which the lyrical themes are death, loss, war and politics. Each song from "For The Fallen" is like as a declaration of war, an assault against the enemy but I highlight "Memoriam", "War Rages On", "Flatline", "Surrounded (by Death), "Resistance" and "Last Words" (special guest of Lynda Hughes - Sacrilege) as the tracks that represent the best attacks and offense. The artwork is spectacular and perfectly conveys the idea of the album, it was made by Dan Seagrave. "For The Fallen" is a great album that will please fans of Bolt Thrower, Benediction, Sacrilege, death metal, thrash metal and crust in general. Conclusion: one of the best records of 2017.

The first thing I have to say: Immolation is a type of band that has never released a bad album. You know, you are going to hear the heaviest, anti religious, brutal, fully destructive death metal without trends. Sure, "Atonement" follows these characteristics, needless to say, this album is as brutal and extreme as "Kingdom of Conspiracy". The guitarrist Alex Bouks (Ruinous, ex Goreaphobia, ex Incantation, ex Master) came with his experience on the road to work together with Ross Dolan, Robert Vigna and Steve Shalaty. In short, "Atonement" is a very good album it resembles musical destruction. I like it! Cover art by Pär Olofsson.

This is the post number 6666 and it is with great pleasure that this review will be made for the Lobotomia. Released in 2016, I listened to this album a lot in 2017, "Desastre" is a heavy and aggressive album and all the songs are an invitation for you go to mosh pit and headbang. With killer guitar riffs, monstrous drums/bass and brutal vocals. Moreover, the lyrics were written masterfully in portuguese. I want to highlight the tracks "Desastre Nuclear", "Engrenagem da Maldade", "Eles São Ferrozes", "Grana no Saco" and "Quem Vai Ganhar?" (Simbiose cover). Alongside Armagedom, Lobotomia is a band from the 80's and they still keep the flame of the Brazilian underground burning, creating powerful and furious songs with good ideas. "Desastre" is one of the best records I have heard in 2017. Badass! Lobotomia: Grego (drums), Guilherme Goto (guitars), Edu Vudoo (vocals) and Daniel Brita (bass).
