REVIEW : The Beckoning - The Desolation of War

Canadian progressive death metallers The Beckoning have been making noise since 2010.  This release combines two earlier demos—Desolate (2014) and War (2012) into one remastered full-length.  Truly progressive, this 4-song clocks in at over 29 minutes, making it either a very long EP, or a full-length with only 4 songs, depending on one’s perspective.… Continued →

REVIEW : Mayfly - Vereor Deus, Non Dogma

Progressive ("recycled") Nu-metal act Mayfly will release their new EP "Vereor Deus, Non Dogma" next week through Voluminous Records.
