In case you’re not familiar with the concept of “Freebie of the Week”, here’s a brief explanation… Each week I go on a little hunt through the vast wastelands of the Internet in search of FREE and LEGAL downloads. So, all of the downloads featured here will be obtainable through trustworthy means… and they’ll be guilt-free. For example, I will only ever feature music available from official band websites, profiles (such as MySpace, Reverbnation or Facebook) and Last.fm (or equivalent).
UK purveyors of Snuff infused serial killing death metal Basement Torture Killings present to you the original version of their debut album “The Second Cumming” this version does not contain the gagged and stuffed edition bonus tracks, although this album is still available from the band.
This audio evidence is presented to you in a manner that lets you choose the price you want to pay. If you want it for free then its yours, if you want to pay for the release then make a donation.
Band camp does not allow unlimited downloads for free. So any money that we receive will be put towards purchasing additional download credits so that we can spread the filth and entomb more victims in our basement for mutual delight.
Here ya go!

You may remember that a little while ago (back in September) I interviewed a band called Legions of Hoar Frost and reviewed their full-length “Bringers of the Black Flame”. Well, the band have returned with three new songs on an EP.
I awarded “Bringers of the Black Flame” an impressive 98% in September and I still hold the album in very high regard (in fact, it’s on my iPod several times per week). So it’s fair to say that I had high hopes for this EP. The trouble with releasing such a killer album is that the band will now have to continually put out amazing stuff. Sorry guys!
A couple of days before “Blight” went on sale, it was made available for streaming on YouTube. As soon as I saw the link to this on Facebook, I clicked on it and did the online equivalent of racing over to listen to it. Luckily, it was awesome. If anything, Legions of Hoar Frost have IMPROVED since “Bringers of the Black Flame”. I don’t know that’s possible, but somehow they’ve achieved it. They’ve grabbed Black Metal by the balls and made it their bitch. Legions of Hoar Frost, I salute you!
The EP opens with “A Seed from Which Nothing Grows” – a doom-tinged slab of Black Metal. The track has a dominating and commanding presence and immediately sets the tone for the EP. It wasn’t as if any of us thought this EP was going to be about rainbows and sunshine, but now we know for sure. Legions of Hoar Frost are taking us on a very dark and tumultuous ride. Next up we have the title track. This track continues along with the same kind of theme, but this time there’s a threat of violence lurking underneath the riffs and vocals. It’s a time bomb waiting to go off. “Our Legacy of Ash” closes this ceremony. This eerie piece really puts your nerves on edge before fading away and leaving you hungry for more.
The EP is currently only available digitally (you can get it from CD Baby), but I believe a CD and possibly a very limited vinyl release are on the cards.
You can preview the EP below:

It’s been a little while since I listened to any straight-forward Heavy Metal (I’m sure my Iron Maiden collection is feeling somewhat neglected – don’t worry, folks, I’ll give it the attention it deserves soon enough). Anyway, since my ears are currently tuned to the more extreme end of the metal spectrum, hearing “New Sound of War” for the first time was something of a surprise. It was a good surprise though…
Iron Knights used to be known as Stuka Squadron until very recently. Since I do not know the whole story, I’m going to refrain from writing any more about the incidents that lead to that name change… there’s plenty of stuff dotted around the web for you to sink your teeth into if you’re really that interested in the politics. So, yes, for the most part, Iron Knights are the same undead vampire pilots that gave us such anthems as “We Drink Blood” and “Stuka Squadron”.
It would be easy to say that “New Sound of War” picks up where “Tales of the Ost” (Stuka Squadron’s first and final full length) left off, but that’s not really the case. While both albums hold the same high level of musicianship and song writing skills, there’s something different about “New Sound of War”. I don’t know whether it’s accidental or by design, but “New Sound of War” feels grittier. The whole thing has a rawer edge. We’re treated to the same kind of heavy metal that we’ve come to expect, but it’s a bit dirtier (not in that way – get your minds out of the gutter!). It’s like everybody’s favourite vampires are still feeding on our blood, but they’re not brushing their fangs between bites.
The highlight of the album for me is something of a curveball. At first “Tell Me Strange Things” had me raising one eyebrow in a quizzical fashion. I just wasn’t sure how to react to it. However, subsequent listens have caused me to love it. The chorus is damn catchy – I even find myself singing it in the shower.
This album gives me the urge to wear denim and leather… which is a good thing since I already wear those things on a regular basis.
If you’re looking for something with big choruses, catchy melodies and epic leads, then “New Sound of War” could be right up your alley.
I’ve had this one in my collection for quite some time and, since I’ve got a couple of hours free today, I thought I’d make a start on some of the reviews I’ve been meaning to write… so, here we go…
Oh, and this one also handily doubles-up as a Freebie of the Week as one of the tracks is available on Last.fm. How awesome is that?
“Inhuman” is a beast of an album. It’s loud, it’s fast and it’s violent. In fact, their Facebook page informs us that the band “Drinks more than Pantera and Motely Crue combined, plays faster than shit, looks weird naked, and promises to rip your ugly face off and flush it down the toilet”… and I’m inclined to believe them.
On first listen the music appears to be frantic and chaotic – its primary aim seems to be to rip the flesh from your bones and hurl it around the room. However, on closer inspection, there’s some damn fine musicianship here – there is order in the chaos. The band is tight. The riffs successfully gallop into your brain and infect it with ease (check out “Animalistic Murder” for a superb example of this) and the structure of the tracks is bang on. This isn’t a case of metal-by-numbers, this is something far more natural. Artillery Breath appear to be playing this stuff because they love it.
I’m not entirely sure on how to categorise this band in terms of genre. For the most part, I consider them to be a Thrash band, but elements of Death and Black Metal surge through the recording and threaten to take over at various points.
If this album doesn’t make you want to headbang and play air guitar, there is something seriously wrong with you.
