Swedish death metal outfit Vanhelgd are back with their third full-length effort, “Relics of Sulphur Salvation.” In a genre where pretty much everything has been done, classic death metal still lives and breathes with this quartet.

Decembre Noir A Discouraged Believer

With a sound reminiscent of Bloodbath, early Katatonia and a few other bands, Decembre Noir brings us their debut release, “A Discouraged Believer.” While many would say that the album is formulaic and derivative of other bands in the genre, I applaud the band for what they did lay down on the album.
