Father Befouled – Desolate Gods

Father Befouled returns this year after 5 years with their new full length, Desolate Gods. Having had 5 years to allow their craft to fester, the band ensures that the stench on their new opus is sufficiently putrid to prevent disappointing their rabid fans.

Heresiarch – Death Ordinance

Heresiarch left its mark on me with their 2011 EP, Hammer of Intransigence. While 2014’s Wælwulf saw a slight shift in musical direction, it was still a crushing, aggressive release.

Desolate Shrine is rather unique in that it utilises a single instrumentalist and two vocalists to create utter chaos and destruction. The Heart of the Netherworld is the Finnish trio’s third full length release, and the band shows how far they have come in their 5 years of existence, showing tremendous growth even comparing to their 2012 sophomore, The Sanctum of Human Darkness.
