The influence of the Japanese hardcore/punk scene in the sound of Paranoid is stronger every day/release and with "Heavy Mental Fuck-Up!" this is very explicit. "Heavy Mental Fuck-Up!" is an exclusive and unique album for Paranoid, because the songs are much more metallic and hardcore than the first records and this is a direct influence of bands like GISM and Death Side. I guess it will not disappoint the old fans of Paranoid, because the ten tracks that make up this album are pretty cool.

Stench of Death was formed in 2010, they returned with a new lineup in 2018 and released "Scars of Terror" the same year. The sound of Stench of Death is a brutal crustcore band in the vein of bands like Extreme Noise Terror, Disrupt, Cruel Face and Masskontroll. One of the most aggressive records released in 2018 in the Brazilian scene. Awesome!

In the minds of the people, Tragedy is known as the fathers of neocrust and consequently, they have influenced many bands since the 2000s. Well, six years after the release of the "Darker Days Ahead" album of 2012, Tragedy returned in 2018 with the EP "Fury" which consists of six tracks. Tragedy kept his musical formula allied with fury, in which the songs "Leviathan", "Enter the Void" and "Swallow the Pill" stand out. Cool!

The EP "Partisan" marks the return of Sodom as a quartet, which also includes the return of Frank Blackfire, early guitarist of the band. As Sodom herself said, the two new sounds are a mix of the albums "Agent Orange", "Persecution Mania" and "Tapping The Vein". So cool!

Cotärd is a new Mexican band and they play d-beat/raw punk influenced by Warvictims. This demo has seven tracks and I must highlight the guitarist of the band. Cool!

This album is good, but I confess I did not hear much Monstrosity compared to other USA death metal bands. I admit, "Imperial Doom" was their only album I actually listened to. Regardless, I like "The Passage of Existence".

"Existential Void Guardian" Conan's 2018 album is a very heavy record, full of energy and strength, in which I can say that it has influences from bands like Black Sabbath, Cathedral and Melvins. The album features seven tracks (the Spotify version contains four more live tracks), I highlight "Paincantation" (total deathgrind, the album's fastest track), "Amidst The Infinite", "Volt Thrower" and "Eternal Silent Legend". The cover art is a good work done by Tony Roberts. So cool!

Led by the controversial Glen Benton and Steve Asheim (both original members), Deicide, Florida's outrageous machine shows the metal world its twelfth album, "Overtures of Blasphemy". Composed of twelve tracks, "Overtures of Blasphemy" is a heavy album, well produced and essentially death metal, in which it will not disappoint fans of the band. Cover art by Zbigniew M. Bielak. Good!

Mente Arma is a band from Southern California and they were one of my first friends in the United States of America. I also watched them at a gig at the Grindhouse in Victorville and it was pretty good. Well, the Mente Arma side is made up of six tracks and they play raw, dirty and energetic crustcore/hardcore. Karstayskä is a Finnish hardcore / punk band and they perform with fourteen tracks. To conclude, I have to thank Kyle (guitarist of Mente Arma) for the tape he gave me as a gift, thank you! So cool!

In the middle of 2018, I listened to The Dark and enjoyed it. I don't have info about the band, but I can say that their sound is influenced by the 80's Japanese hardcore/punk scene mixed with thrash metal. It is worth checking them out.

"Our Due Descent" is the fourth album by Mass Grave and as usual it is excellent. Thirteen crushing tracks that revolve around sixteen minutes of noise, chaos, explosion, musical destruction and good lyrics. Highly recommended, badass!

Fifteen years after the release of "Dopesmoker", Sleep returned smoky all over with their new album "The Sciences" in 2018, that is, better late than never. Comprised of six tracks, "The Sciences" is a heavy, catchy and as powerful as the moon rocks (one of the best and strongest kinds of marijuana in the world), meaning this would have left the listener really stoned by sound waves. Smoke, relax and have a good trip... very good!

B.O.T.O.E is a South American band composed by Venezuelans and a Brazilian, in which they are living in Barcelona in Catalonia. "Totalitarismo Del Siglo XXI" contains five noises influenced by Discharge, Disclose and Shitlickers with well-informed lyrics with high content of revolt and anarchy. The cover art is real images of the current Venezuela and this collage was made by Gus. In short, noise against the political lies, both from the right and from the left (remember: they don't represent you). Fuck you, Maduro! Fuck you, Bolsonaro! I don't believe in anything!

"Coded Smears and More Uncommon Slurs" is a compilation released by Napalm Death in 2018. It contains previously unreleased material from various album recording sessions, b-sides, limited edition bonus tracks and split recordings. You will also hear cover songs from bands like Gepøpel, Cardiacs, G-Anx, Sacrilege and Despair. The cover art is reminiscent of the Predator's mouth and was a made by Frode Sylthe (he was also the creator of other Napalm Death album covers such as "Utilitarian" and "Apex Predator - Easy Meat"). So cool!

Born to Murder the World is the newest project involving Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Lock Up, Brujeria, Venomous Concept, etc), Mick Kenney (Anaal Nathrakh) and Drunk (Fukpig) and their sound is grindcore with some death/black metal influences. Fast and extreme, very good!
