The Black Metal Guy slithers out from his dreadful crypt. The Death Metal Guy emerges from his abattoir-cum-brothel. A chill upon the hissing wind raises hackles and lowers spirits. A sluggish and corpulent full moon hangs listlessly just over the horizon. A whisper whips through the trees, barely audible: "please bro I just need an aux cable to run my drum machine through the PA I swear I'll give it back as soon as I'm done with my set."
Welcome back to Terminus! At least partially rejuvenated from our break we return with SEASON 4 of the hottest extreme metal podcast on the market! This time we're opening the year a little differently: an embarrassment of riches came out toward the end of 2022, making it literally impossible to cover everything of note before the year is out. As a result, we've assembled a fast-moving episode of shorter reviews to attempt to cover as much territory as possible before proceeding with 2023 releases. Today's features include:
Chasm Shroud attempting to square the circle of high art and fast motorcycles.
Manticore continuing a proud legacy of middle-American* proto-war metal.
Tribal Gaze creating a tricky new sound from the bones of death metal and hardcore.
Stabbing reining in brutal death metal's most abstract impulses to create something more musical.
Shape of Despair providing the definitive soundtrack to visits to a mist-filled cemetery.
Komootra dedicating themselves to torture, nihilism, death, nothing, The End, etc.
Welcome back, terminators! It's time to put 2023 to death- by guillotine!

*TBMG starts the year off right - with a thunderous, clunking error. Judas Iscariot is from DeKalb, Illinois, which is NOT in Ohio. The broader point, re. Midwestern black metal, still stands.
