WarpRider Born of a Cancerous Womb is an intense ride of speed and brutality.  They remind me a bit of A Band of Orcs where the heart of the music is based on ferocity while remaining mostly coherent and focused. Cancerous Womb embraces the melody often found in thrash metal and turns up the dial on speed and growling vocals. I dig it. 4.0

Irmelinis – Full of grooves, intense, crushing drums and viciously fast blast beats; these songs are great fun if you ignore the disgusting lyrics and song titles. 3.5

ChristopherMammal – In many ways this is the essence of harder modern metal – plenty, plenty skilful guitar; bass that shakes the plaster off the walls; a maestro behind the drum kit; and vocals hand-crafted from the most expensive sandpaper. In addition to all of that, the band is also irreverent, vulgar and forthright. Overall, it’s grand mosh pit music and great home listening. Keep Grandma out of the room. She may disapprove of song titles like “Up to my Nuts in Guts”. 4.3

A Metal State of Mind Score – 3.9

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
