Hellripper’s highly-anticipated Black Arts & Alchemy EP released a few weeks ago. People have been spinning this one a lot lately, and for good reason. Here’s a look at this Scottish lad’s newest handful of speedy blasphemous anthems.
Ripped to Shreds, everyone’s favourite Bay Area death/doom/grind project (a self-proclaimed title – I’d argue about the doom part), released a brand new demo back in March.

Clench your fists and get that circle pit ready, ‘cause Assimilation are in town.

The mutated sewer monsters have risen, this time in the form of a group called Pestilent Death. These gross death metal bands are popping up everywhere as of late, and I love it. This can probably be attributed to the fact that our nation’s defense system, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, have been obstructing their bowels with excessive amounts of grease-covered pizza and can no longer fend off the beasts below.
