Have you ever been a witness, live or televised, of a thundering herd of wildebeests, trampling earth underfoot as they run for their lives?  Have you ever watched in awe or terror as one animal is tearing the throat out from another?  Nature has given us the visuals that can be the stuff of nightmares, […]

Dissident Aggression: Buried Through Encoffination

Posted by on October 24, 2014

As the days grow shorter and the skies grow darker the Earth, at least in this Hemisphere, begins its yearly ritual of decline to Winter slumber.  The explosions of color will be replaced by landscapes of barren whiteness.  The crisp air that kisses the breeze will begin to wrap its icy hand around your throat […]

“…If we can’t live in peace then let us die in peace…”, comes the voice of cult leader Jim Jones from the now infamous final audio of Jones addressing his tribe before committing mass suicide (and in some cases murder).  This sample is how the debut album, All Hell’s Martyrs, from Dublin’s Dread Sovereign kicks […]

Dissident Aggression: The Wounded Kings Reign On

Posted by on February 21, 2014

It could be stated, with few arguments, that the British Isles have done more for the advancement of doom metal than any other part of the world.  It could also be argued that if you were to make up a list of the greatest doom metal bands of all-time that it would have more than […]

Dissident Aggression: Fresh Hell From Omotai

Posted by on February 14, 2014

All bands evolve.  Even the ones like Motorhead and AC/DC that some poke fun at for ‘making the same record’ really don’t ever make the same record.  Some bands just evolve quicker than others and the musical shifts from one record to the next are slightly more pronounced than others.  But if done right, with […]
