Milwaukee death metallers Morta Skuld show us a vision of the end on their new album, Creation Undone. Morta Skuld got its start back in 1990, rolling out a series of demos and splits leading to their debut long-player, Dying Remains, in 1993. Three more big albums followed, and then the band went on hiatus for a number of years. Their slumber was broken in 2012, and they tested the waters with an EP a couple years later. The real business got going in 2017 with the release of the incredible Wounds Deeper Than Time. Since then, Morta Skuld has been on a mighty rampage. The band is Dave Gregor ..read more

New music from Ghoul is always a cause for celebration: Noxious Concoctions. Ghoul is the famous Oakland metal band that mashes death/thrash/grind and whatever else they need into the music they create. They cracked out three killer long-players in the early aughts, and since then they have been more parsimonious with new records, letting one go every five years or so. Therefore, when we do get a new one, it is a good day for fans. The band is Digestor (vocals, guitar), Cremator (vocals, bass), Fermentor (drums, vocals), and Dissector (vocals, guitar). Talking about the latest EP, Digestor te ..read more
