Bloodbath Fanzine Superb Essex based Trad metal torchbearers, good solid album of songs, standout for me was D-Day for the excellent “Maiden-esque” opening riff and questionable lyrical content. The rest of the album draws inspiration from doom and a bit of early thrash/speed with mixed success, but there's enough of the good stuff on here to make this a fun enjoyable record. Favorite track: D-Day.

They drag us down with consumerism Just another form of fascism The western world has ruined our land Unwelcome, sour taste in the mouth I am the saviour of my people He is the bringer of all evil I will shun all earthly delight I will rise up, and live for the fight Death is a journey, not a destination Paradise awaits, a painful sensation I am the saviour of my people He is the bringer of all evil Out on patrol, eyes scanning the streets War torn horizons, bodies under sheets Another day, another bomb Another maniac’s evil has shone Our foot patrol comes under attack No escape, no way of going back Death is near my dearest lord This god forsaken war has taken us all I am the saviour of my people He is the bringer of all evil

Storming the beaches of Normandy Charging towards the enemy Dodging bullets and shellfire Mounds of bodies piled higher D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive Running towards machine gun nests Hundreds of men doing their best To destroy their evil regime Product of a twisted dream D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive The Nazi war machine Is a nightmare, not a dream From their camps, evil screams Nothing is as it seems D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive D-Day has arrived D-Day you won’t survive

4) PHOBOPHOBIA I'm developing a phobia A fear I can’t explain It's the fear of having a phobia I think I'm going insane Phobophobia The fear of being afraid Phobophobia My mind is being betrayed I have nothing to fear but fear itself Something I cannot control Terrified by the unrelenting Fears that haunt my soul Phobophobia The fear of being afraid Phobophobia My mind is being betrayed Don't have a fear of the dark Don't suffer from insomnia But I can't get no sleep at night 'Cause I've got phobophobia Phobophobia!

From ancient tombs of giant sizes An age old doom now arises Spirit of fire and of death Rotten lungs now draw breath Up I come from the tomb Up I come to bring your doom Up I come from the tomb Up I come to bring your doom Blight upon mankind Ancient blackened frost rimed As shadows begin to fall Evil souls hear its call Up I come from the tomb Up I come to bring your doom Up I come from the tomb Up I come to bring your doom I am the shadowed night I am the lost fight I am the cancer breath I am your death So now we must fight To end this blight Mankind’s hatred is his power We must crush his babel tower Up I come from the tomb Up I come to bring your doom And now I fall My power spent For the deaths I’ll not repent

Chaos and violence everywhere, Hoodies on the path to scare The city of London is afire This whole world has gone haywire The world is full of hate We’re just a useless nanny state Our future’s looking pretty bleak This country's going up the creek They're not fighting for anything For them it's just entertaining Wasters and their damn persistence Just to justify their sad existence The world is full of hate We’re just a useless nanny state Our future’s looking pretty bleak This country's going up the creek The youth are running wild Threat to man, woman and child Police don't see the need to fight Just ‘cause it’s their human right The government won’t make the call To come and protect us all We all must stand and fight Our whole nation must unite The world is full of hate We’re just a useless nanny state Our future’s looking pretty bleak This country's going up the creek

Now listen to this, I've a tale to tell 'bout a darkened forest, where the goblin doth dwell In a place called Wychwood, on a cold moonlit night He'll come from the shadows, and give you a fright Fear not the hobgoblin, he means you no pain He brings forth an ale, no need to complain Take this drink, a drink you'll enjoy" Afraid you might taste something, lager boy?" In the forest of Wychwood, there's more to his crew Goliath and Scarecrow, to name but a few Gingerbeard, a fiery old fellow Give him a beer, and soon he will mellow Fear not the hobgoblin, he means you no pain He brings forth an ale, no need to complain Take this drink, a drink you'll enjoy" Afraid you might taste something, lager boy?" The legend of Wychwood was thought just a story The Hobgoblin’s ale filled me with glory That wicked young imp helped me decide And with that I was taken to the dark side Fear not the hobgoblin, he means you no pain He brings forth an ale, no need to complain Take this drink, a drink you'll enjoy" Afraid you might taste something, lager boy?" So if you're in Wychwood forest When the moon is at its fullest Be sure to try this mystical brew The Hobgoblin may work his magic on you Fear not the hobgoblin, he means you no pain He brings forth an ale, no need to complain Take this drink, a drink you'll enjoy" Afraid you might taste something, lager boy?"

Stuck in this life of endless repetition No means of escape, no course of action Seeing the world from isolated lands On this edgeless platform on which I stand I have no arms, I cannot fight I have no legs to jump this height (x2) Stuck in this life of endless repetition No attempt to run No means of motion Spending my time wandering aimlessly My cohorts crushed, there’s nothing left for me I have no arms, I cannot fight I have no legs to jump this height (x2) And so I take my final breath Can’t avoid inevitable descending death And so I take my final breath Can’t avoid inevitable descending death I have no arms, I cannot fight I have no legs to jump this height (x2)

Preparing for battle, sharpening our knives Batten down hatches and lock up your wives A stroke of the oar, a swing of the axe You'd better prepare for coming attacks We’ll bust down your doors, treat you like whores Rape and we’ll pillage all of the village bust down your doors, treat you like whores Rape and we’ll pillage all of the village Warriors of the sea, we come fer ye Filling our hold, full with your gold With sword and with blade, our debts are paid The fires burn bright, into the night We’ll bust down your doors, treat you like whores Rape and we’ll pillage all of the village bust down your doors, treat you like whores Rape and we’ll pillage all of the village Into the battle Into the battle Into the battle We shall go Into the battle Into the battle Into the battle We shall go We come with the tide, in mail with pride On this quest, we will never rest Our cold sharpened steel, the metal you feel We’ll drink our mead and watch you bleed We’ll bust down your doors, treat you like whores Rape and we’ll pillage all of the village bust down your doors, treat you like whores Rape and we’ll pillage all of the village

Hiding in shadows Stalking my prey Into the night To take you away Creeping and crawling Through ruined cities Feasting on lives I feel no pity Subhuman Subhuman Born in a lab Child of technology Indoctrination Perverse psychology Bred for war Feel no remorse Insanity A matter of course Subhuman Subhuman Glistening fangs Razor claws Inhuman appetite Subhuman mind Man’s creation His damnation From a chemical womb That’s where I grew Man nor beast Memories few I was never born I never knew How love did feel Or if it were true Subhuman Subhuman

Reviews:
"A fantastic debut album from Osmium Guillotine, with the blend of attitude, style and musicianship only true British metal can deliver. There’s a new wave of metal on the way and this is exactly the kind of stuff that ought to be at the forefront of it, dark and heavy without being “brutal”, with great musicianship and songwriting."
- Chainmail Metal Reviews
chainmailmetalreviews.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/osmium-guillotine

"Every one of the musicians on this album plays their part perfectly, whether it be the ruling percussive elements of 80's metal, the ridiculously talented lead and harmonised guitarists or the vocal with attitude and pure feeling. For a debut album to sound this good takes hard work and a lot of love." 10/10
- Black Phoenix Rising

“Constantly changing OG do not let the grass grow under their feet. It is very apparent from listening to their debut that they have poured every last drop of blood, sweat and tongue in cheek into it, but not too much of the latter, just enough for a small respite until the onslaught hits!” 9/10
- Pagan Hel Reviews
paganhelreviews.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/osmium-guillotine-debut-11-track-album.html

"This is an album you can repeatedly listen to in full. A debut of real promise, this is a bright shining gem that promises a terrific future for a young act of tremendous virtuosity."

"Turn that volume button up to the max, take the musical beating that comes your way and admire some artistes at home in their chosen noise and who are really producing the goods."
- Fungalpunk CD Reviews
www.fungalpunknature.co.uk/FUNGALPUNK/CDReviews/Page%201.html

"Osmium Guillotine have delivered an album that bears the mark of UK Metal's history of quality, and the band should wear this mark with their heads held high. With the right amount of touring and exposure, and the right utilisation of the passion and spirit on show here, this band have the potential to become UK Metal's bright new hope. This band deserves our support, plain and simple." 8.5/10
- Turn It Up! Media
turnitupmedia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/album-review-osmium-guillotine-osmium.html

"The band itself has great attitude, feel, songwriting skills and an understanding of combining elements of punk, thrash and early metal into one sound. It sounds familiar but also new, not easy to do. Guitarists Peter Keliris and Lance Steele have some catchy double leads and really fire up the fret board when the time calls for it….excellent, excellent work. And as the band morphs into the more brutal, trashy rhythms, bassist Daniel Thurgood and drummer, James Balcombe combine to roll out a heavy metal Sherman tank wall of sound."
- Metal Shock Finland
metalshockfinland.com/2014/07/26/review-osmium-guillotine-osmium-guillotine-2014/


"Osmium Guillotine creates a very interesting and old school approach to heavy metal with their musical sound which shows them combining the mid 70's and 80's sound together while also adding in folk, punk and classic rock to make their musical more original, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover war and fantasy themes." 8.5/10
- Extreme Underground Music Zine
undergroundmusickzine.blogspot.ca/2014/08/osmium-guillotineself-titledmgr.html

"This is Old-School Heavy Metal that manages to encapsulate quite a few different feelings from early Metal and distil them into this release. Classic Metal is a given, but Doom Metal, Proto-Thrash and NWOBHM all get a look in. There’s even a touch of Punk to things now and again."
- Wonderbox Metal
wonderboxmetal.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/osmium-guillotine-osmium-guillotine-review/

"A superb album of classic British heavy metal, with great guitar work, cracking vocals and sparkling rhythms."
- Frenzy Fire
www.frenzyfire.co.uk/fa_osmiumguillotinereviews.htm

"Fuckin A is this some pure kick ass straight forward heavy metal with tons of catchy hooks and songs that are a metal fan’s dream. No nu metal or groove or any deathcore shit on this. Just a pure heavy metal release that Judas Priest would be a fan of. :"
- MetalCore Fanzine
www.metalcorefanzine.com/reviews73.html

"Osmium Guillotine have their feet partially entrenched in the New Wave of British Metal however there are also elements of the original wave of thrash metal so the band's music voyages through metal's past despite being in the present." 4/5
- The Small Takeover
smalltakeover.blogspot.ca/2014/10/osmium-guillotine-osmium-guillotine.html

"This band is a very broad mix of pretty much every balls to the wall genre out there; Heavy Metal, Punk, Hard Rock, Doom Metal… If you can bang your head and drink beer to it, these guys have it, and pull it off with ease!"
- Metal Temple
www.metal-temple.com/site/catalogues/entry/reviews/cd_3/o_2/osmium-guillotine.htm

"Eleven ass-kicking tunes, minus one short weirdo intro. Good stuff!" 5/5

"Osmium Guillotine's debut album is simply fantastic, with big riffs and memorable, passionate lyrics."
- The Amp Session
theampsession.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/osmium-guillotine-osmium-guillotine.html

"This album just works. It is sufficiently old school with the combination of classic metal and punk, whilst not a new sound genre wise, it is still unlike anything I have heard before."
www.mindnoisenetwork.com#!osmium-guillotine/c23lr
- Mind Noise Network

"Rip-roaring old-school metal, or is it shit-kicking street-punk? Either way, it’s one of the most exciting noises making ears bleed in Essex."

- Oliver Arditi

"Osmium Guillotine is the soundtrack to an ale-quaffing apocalypse of immoral and chaotic proportions. And I want to hear more."

about

Osmium Guillotine Essex, UK

Take some 80's heavy metal, sprinkle on a handful of classic rock, a zest of 70's punk, with just a light twist of doom. Pour in a few pints of ale and Osmium Guillotine is the resulting mess.
