TERRORIZER review of The Plague Symphony album - 7/10
Sometimes it's indeed true that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, and in the case of these deathgrind upstarts from Coventry this is definately the case. Blending melodic death metal riffs and classic havey metal...( read more)

COVENTRY GIVES BIRTH TO A DEATHLY MONSTER.


THERE'S A world of difference between real death metal and the wonky haircut-sporting fly-by-night facsimile that clogs up MySpace. The Plague Symphony are, thankfully, the real deal and they may just be precisely the shot in the arm that the Britsh scene needs. ...( read more)

ZERO TOLERANCE Review of Out For Blood album - 4/5
Out For Blood’s paroxysm of baleful sludge-punk immediately had the fillings in my teeth spiralling out of my gums like bloody confetti. With absolutely no palliative concessions to subtlety, Out For Blood gleefully vomits forth a bracing suburban nihilism with the sanguineous fatality of a sledgehammer to an infants skull....( read more)

ZERO TOLERANCE Review of Fume album - 4/5
A good sign of a decent album is one that is hard to categorise and Fume certainly mix a number of styles that puts them outside of the box. Predominantly they use simple riffing techniques with power chords to create a concrete sound that plays as the backing track to the vocalists...( read more)

METAL HAMMER review of The Plague Symphony album
Blast-beat ridden blackened death.
THIS Coventry crew have several strings to their bow and they’re not afraid to show them off. First and foremost they are purveyors of some very fine imported death metal/grind. Fast, but not overly technical, this mini album has some tremendous blast-beat ridden passages that occasionally bring to mind bits of Cannibal Corpse...( read more)

The Plague Symphony - 'The Black Gate' review by Lord Of Metal
Menno: The Plague Symphony's debut record seems to be a worthy full-length, but in fact it's just a twenty minute EP (intro included). The CD has some very nice and dark artwork done by Cris Narcosis (who did artwork for bands like Necrophagist and Brutal Truth)...( read more)

The Plague Symphony - 'The Black Gate' review by Concreteweb
The Devil Knows You're Dead Records ' third release is, again, from a Coventry-based band. The Plague Symphony is a quintet that releases this mini-album (total running time: 17:33 ) with a morbid grin on their face, I guess. After the industrialised intro " Storming The Black Gate......( read more)

The Plague Symphony album review by Toxic Pete
Cor blimey!! I suppose I shouldn't be surprised though, the name, The Plague Symphony and album title 'The Black Gate' contain all the clues you need. This is mind-numbing, ear-wax melting, sinus clearing metal at its most vicious....( read more)

KERRANG reviews Out For Blood album
KKKK
BASTARD HEAVY DEBUT FROM FILTHY COVENTRY SCUMLORDS

With an opening gambit as subtly titled as ‘Keep No C**t Alive’, it’s scarcely surprising that Out For Blood are a drunken, violent bastard of a band set on making the most distastefully nasty noise possible, and the resulting Molotov cocktail of grindcore sludge...( read more)

ANGRY HARDCORE DROWNING IN ITS OWN TESTOSTERONE

Fume's caustuc, virtriolic hardcore is a brutal excercise in sounding really pissed off. Living up to their moniker in furious style, they tear through each song...( read more)

Out For Blood album review by Lords Of Metal
The Brittish band Out For Blood releases its first record on their self-created label The Devil Knows You're Dead. Of course this can mean two things; either the band likes to be in control of their own product, or their music is so bad no label wanted to sign them. After listening to this album I am willing to go for the first option...( read more)
