Plecto Aliquem Capite - The End

Plecto Aliquem Capite – The End

Black metal you say? Hide behind the stable door?  In the end if all else fails? The never ending onslaught of extreme metal cluttering up the in-box and the day, most of it generic, most of silly, now and again something ignites, and when metal is good then good it is. Have some metal, some black black metal, Sri Lanka’s black metal unit Plecto Aliquem Capite are streaming their latest EP “The End” on their Bandcamp page….


Meanwhile over in France, “Parisian quintet Cowards have become an unrelenting force since their inception in 2012, imposing their ruthless blend of metallic hardcore and sludge over a couple of 12″ releases and stages all across Europe. Only getting stronger and stronger as time passes by, the band now returns with their second album «Rise To Infamy». These ten tracks stand up as their most cohesive work…



Cowards are back with a new  EP “Still”, released today, December 2nd, on Throatruiner, Deadlight, and Terrain Vague. We’re talking seriously sharp “unmoshable hardcore black metal” and some seriously “thuggish sludge” that’s kind of out there walking on the edge in a slightly different way Apparently the EP also features two “life-crushing” covers – The Police “Every Breath You Take” and The Horrorist “One Night In NYC” – unmoshably thuggish indeed




The Whipstriker are the real raw and blistering Filth Hound deal – we are the filth, we are the filrth, we are, we are…  We’re not talking slickness, and none of that tedious technical metal ponytail nonsense, no studio wizardry – “thank whatever god you worship for this” said someone or other. “Only Filth…” is the golden days of Warfare, the first moves of Venom, the metallic onslaught of Discharge, Hellhammer, Fast Eddie period Motorhead, those days when those Cockney Rejects were going all metal around the edges or the Filth Hounds themselves, Tank. The album came out back in the summer (that’s Summer 3016, not the middle of 1984), and damn and blast, just missed the London date of a European tour the band from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil were on… here, have some proper metal, have some Whipstriker….
