Aegaeon – Being

To a certain degree, deathcore is fucking dead. It’s true. As a collective, we are fickle people with short attention spans, there’s nothing wrong with that. If you want page hits and controversy, you rag on djent instead; it’s fairly simple.

Jabs aside, Mancunian four-piece Winterfylleth return…

Septicflesh Set To Conquer To The World

Slice The Cake To Release B-Sides Album

Slice The Cake’s The Man With No Face was definitely a surprising record. Being the pessimist I am, I automatically assumed it would be another boring breakdown infused deathcore release. But an album that seemed so bad turned out to just be fucking killer. It’s been on constant rotation since…
