 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 9/25/17
Sep 242017
 

Cannibal Corpse
Code of the Slashers – single
Metal Blade Records
What do you expect from this band at this point? Great meaty brutal grooves and corpsegrinder screaming his head off. No sign of letting up and maybe even being more techinical.

JEFF SCOTT SOTO
Inside / Outside – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
First single. good stuff, classic melodic hard rock. Can’t wait to hear his new Sons of Apollo stuff too.

36 Crazyfists
Lanterns
Spinefarm
These guys have been doing this a long time, a good version of melodic metalcore type stuff with Brock Lindow’s distinctive vocals. Music is solid, the vox are a raspy clean-ish style

King Parrot
Ugly Produce
Housecore
Hardcore-punky grindy death metal.

Jag Panzer
The Deviant Chord
SPV
Always a solid power metal with a pinch of prog metal thing going on, and this being their first album in 6 years… they still got it… especially being this type of band from not europe! (colorado)

The Bronx
V
ATO
Kind of hardcore, kind of punk, melodic hard rocking stuff.

Veil of Maya
Overthrow SIngle
Sumerian
Djenty technical brutalcore. (sumerian core?) Clean vox doing chorus stuff, like modern mall-ish metal core.

ALTARAGE
Spearheaderon (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
13 October 2017
A little grindy, death metal, instrumental. A little doom too.

 

Satyricon
Deep calleth upon Deep
Napalm Records
They’re back with more of their black n roll. I feel like they have this sound down, a good doomy blackened groove. It’s heavy, but just has such meaty grooves, so it’s definitely “Satyricon” but not as really heavy as older stuff.

Arisen From Nothing
Broken
Collective Wave Records
This is some modern metal type stuff, a good groove, heavy, but yet it seems accessible, like a five finger death punch

Architects
Doomsday (Single)
Epitaph Records
Proggish metalcore, chilled and laid back, and metalcore like in the heaver parts. Good technicality.

Kadavar
Rough Times
Nuclear Blast USA
Sludgey doom (on the one single I have so far) Good grooves, meaty old school vibes

Every Mother’s Nightmare
Grind
High Voltage Music
Remember this band? Yeah. They’re back. I guess now that I look things up, they had an EP out a couple years ago of this same name, and now a full length, prior to that, it was a 13 year break. So, yeah, a bit of a southern bluesy classic hard rock groove going on here.

STEELHEART
Through Worlds of Stardust – DOWNLOAD
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Classic band with a new album doing their classic sound… with that voice!

WAYWARD SONS
Ghosts of Yet to Come – DOWNLOAD
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Same as most stuff on this label, good solid hard rock.

DIRTY THRILLS
Heavy Living – DOWNLOAD
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Again, grooving blusey hard rock, good punchy sound

HELL IN THE CLUB
See You On The Dark Side – DOWNLOAD
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
I kind of wish I could just do a show to showcase some of this cool new modern classic hard rock type stuff. Another great catchy hard rock instant classic.

Lethal Injektion
Blinding Light
RuffLife Recordz
Modern metalcore stuff, with singy emo-ish vox.

Godhead Machinery
Ouroboros
Inverse Records
Melodic death metal with a pinch of doom. Catchy aggressive stuff

LUCIFER’S CHALICE
The Pact (CD, TAPE)
Shadow Kingdom
Doomy classic metal

Occasvs
Nocturnal Majestic Mysteria
Classic brutal black metal, technical, heavy, evil, cold, good stuff.

Runespell
Unhallowed Blood Oath CD/LP
Iron Bonehead
Classic old school black metal. Lo-fi.

HORRIFIED (UK)
Allure of the Fallen (CD, LP, TAPE)
Shadow Kingdom
Melodic blackened doomy death metal. A creepy evil vox sound, meedly cold black metal feeling guitars, but some cool melodic stuff going on.

Breaking Samsara
Light Of A New Beginning
Boersma
A classic metal/hard rock thing, almost sounds like something from Frontiers records, maybe a bit more modern/prog elements going on.

Worm (USA)
Evocation of the Black Marsh LP/TAPE
Iron Bonehead
Any time it says it’s released on TAPE in this day and age… I gotta think it’s going to not sound good. Yup. Loud, and in your face, sounds rough and raw… not my thing. Black Death metal type stuff.

ICE WAR
Ice War (CD, LP, TAPE)
Shadow Kingdom
Now this says “TAPE” too… but this one is more of a throwback classic stoner doom. Maybe a Thin Lizzy-ish type thing with more creepy doom vox.

Necrovorous
Plains of Decay
Dark Descent Records
This is some good stuff, brutal blackened death metal. Yeah! It’s not just black metal, it’s not just death metal, but grooving death metal with a little black metal edge to it.

Antiversum
Cosmos Comedenti
Invictus Productions
Doomy sludge/noisy black metal. Long tracks.

DÖXA
Lust for Wonder
Pitch Black Records
Female fronted power metal, kind of a gothy symphonic feeling. Operattic clean female vocals.

SIFTING
Not from Here
Eclipse Records
This is some classic metal type stuff. Just a hard rock thing. Good grooves.

Asagraum
Potestas Magicum Diaboli
KVLT
Melodic classic black metal. Good slower parts, full on brutal and dark/evil heavy parts.

Buried Realm
The Ichor Carcinoma
Self-Release
Thrashy melodic death metal. Cool technicality and an epic full feeling with the keyboards. Cool stuff, sort of a brutal prog metal.

Coven (Japan)
The Advent
Svart Records
Classic metal, they are inspired by the NWOBHM sound with female vox. Kinda neat!

CITIES OF MARS
Temporal Rifts
Argonauta Records
They say to “File Under: Doom Metal / Heavy Psych” and yeah, it’s right on, it’s got the doomy classic sound, but a bit of a psychedelic thing going on too.

Hive
Fights the Reds
Infamy PR
Raw and brutal death metal with a bit of a punk attitude. Mushy production.

Process Of Guilt
Black Earth
Bleak Recordings/Division Records
Doomy post metal.

Band: WAIT HELL IN PAIN
Album: Wrong Desire
Label: Revalve records
Melodic metal with female vox. Vox are clean but with a bit of rasp, not all operattic… music is kind of proggy melodic death-ish.

ARCHSPIRE
Relentless Mutation
Season of Mist
Brutal fast machine gun drum death metal. Great stuff.

VULTURE INDUSTRIES
Stranger Times
Season of Mist
A bit of a melodic doom… a bit throwback, some maybe goth feel too.

Band: Woe Unto Me
Album: Among The Lightened Skies The Voidness Flashed
Label: Solitude Production
Doomy death metal. Melodic and a bit depressing a few bursts of brtual-ness… but not a lot… really long songs. (From Belarus!)

Zephyra
The Darkest Black (Single)
Inverse
Melodic death- female fronted,

VERGE
The Process Of Self-Becoming
I, Voidhanger Records
Old school melodic classic black metal, Heavy, dark and cold too

SHEIDIM
Infamata
I, Voidhanger Records

New Stuff This Week… 9/18/17

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 9/18/17
Sep 172017
 

 

BLACKFINGER
“WHEN COLORS FADE AWAY”
(M-THEORY AUDIO)
Hard rocking sludgey stoner metal, maybe a bit of an Alice in Chains vibe going on mixed with some Trouble

PRIMAL FEAR
If Looks Could Kill – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
From a forthcoming greatest hits type album compilation, this track is new, and kind of has a little bit of a Scorpions vibe to it…

BABYLON A.D.
Crash And Burn – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l
To be honest, I remember this band’s name and artwork and stuff from their release around 1990ish… but not their sound… This track has a feeling from that time though, maybe a little bit of a catchy bluesy hard rock. Makes me want to rock out with a cheap bear and air-guitar along!

With The Dead
Love From With The Dead
Rise Above
sludgey doom with long songs, slow depressing, yet meaty riffs.

Entheos
“The World Without Us” [Single]
Spinefarm
A metalcore-ish djenty tech groove metal. A bit progg-ish and catchy too

Act of Defiance
Old Scars, New Wounds
Metal Blade Records
A super group of sorts on their 2nd album. Catchy heavy extreme thrashing stuff. Melodic death leaning towards some just plain death metal. Heavy and brutal… monster grooving riffs. Some clean vox.

Counterparts
You’re Not You Anymore
Pure Noise Entertainment
Screamy metalcore, all heavy, kind of technical, melodic and chaotic.

Cradle Of Filth
Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay
Nuclear Blast USA
Just a single so far… but pretty good stuff, classic wall of blackened epic metal with Dani Filth’s trademark vox. Great stuff.

Diabolo Blvd
Zero Hour
Metalville Records
A bit of a doomy stoner metal.

Necrophile (Japan)
Awakening Those Oppressed
Unholy Prophecies
A little bit grindy and grooving classic death metal. It’s a bit raw and old school, but brutal!

Tombstalker
Chaotic Devotion
Boris Records
Kind of some grungy sludgey death metal. 2 songs, good grooves though.

MEAT TRAIN
RANDOM ACTS OF CARNAGE
LABEL: CONTAGION RECORDS
Chugga chugga brutal death metal. huge meaty grooves

CANKER (Spain)
Earthquake
Xtreem Music
This is kind of a mix of some death metal, thrash, a little black metal and grooving death metal.

DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS
The I
Lifeforce
Melodic death metal with a blackened thing going on. It’s got some clean and growly vox. A bit catchy and a bit proggish.

Kaipa
Children of the Sounds
InsideOut
Classic old school melodic prog rock. Female fronted, big long songs. (not metal)

HAZZERD
Misleading Evil
World War Now Records
Great thrashed up classic metal. Lots of good guitar work, but a more raw and gritty production. Has an old Metallica meets Iron Maiden thing going on. ur

Urarv
Aurum
Svart Records
classic Black metal with creepy shouted/screamed vox

Sinicle
Angels & Demons
Self-Release
A bit of a metalcore, experimental, prog thing. A bit of a punky sludge thing going on with melodic and wierd stuff too.

NATIONAL SUICIDE
Massacre Elite
Scarlet Records
Classic thrash… A bit like Exodus, because you’ll swear the vox are by Zetro! They’re not…and its great stuff.

Skein
Deadweight
Inverse Records
Kind of a melodic laid back Tool sounding thing. Dark-ish alt. hard rock/metal. Musically more like a depressing Porcupine Tree that doesn’t ever really get going. Vox sound like Maynard Keenan.

NIBIRU
Qaal Babalon
Argonauta Records
When it says this: “File Under: Ritual Doom Sludge” There’s a 99% chance I’m not going to like it. This isn’t the 1%. 4 LONG songs of sludgey noise

TUNA DE TIERRA
S/t
Argonauta Records
This one says: “File Under: Desert Stoner Rock / Heavy Psych” And it must mean, VERY laid back stoner rock. Very chilled out.

Terror Empire
Obscurity Rising
Mosher Records
This is some gritty melodic thrashy death metal and right up the Mosh Pit’s alley.

LYZZÄRD
Savage
Fighter
Classic thrash / old school metal but maybe a little bit of a really old Motley Crue rawness. Clean vox

We Came From Wolves
Haunt Me EP
Heart Out
Kind of an alternative rock/metalcore-ish thing.

 

Band: TRAUMA
Album: Comedy Is Over (Re-issue)
Label: Deformeathing Production
Brutal death metal

Pando
(in)human(e)
Self Released
File this under WTF? Disjointed noise, voiceovers, sound clips, occasional black metal growls and screams. We then get into a little bit of a black metal thing in parts…

Myrkur
Mareridt
Relapse Records
A sort of gothy clean female vox rock thing, with some dark overtones

Signs (Of A Slumbering Beast)
Black and White
Nub Music
Alt-metal. You got some poppy metalcore with growls, otherwise, commercial-ish sounding hard rock.

Band: Turbocharged (Sweden)
Album: Apocalyptic
Label: Go Fuck Yourself Productions
They say it’s “Deathpunk Metal” and yeah, I can hear that, it’s got a bit of a distorted grungy distorted heavy doom/stoner metal sound, but a solid abrasive groove. Cool stuff!

Young Hunter
Dayhiker
Magnetic Eye
Laid back sort of stoner metal… catchy, throw-back-ish. Maybe like a mastodon meets foo-fighters in parts.

Sep 102017
 

Vattnet
Vattnet
New Damage
A bit of a doomy goth metal, a bit dark and depressing, but maybe a little metalcore

Warbeast
Enter The Arena
Housecore
This is some extreme thrash, catchy, heavy, yet still light enough to not really be sooo brutal. There’s some good heavy parts, but lots of good melodic solos and classic thrash!

Toothgrinder
“The Shadow” (single)
Spinefarm
A new wave of metalcore? It’s kind of heavy, yet laid back and chilled out/doomy. clean vox but more melodic and kind prog-vox. I’d say this is what is the new modern power ballad. It’s good and driving, but not all fast and heavy, great grooves and harsh vox along with the clean vox. interesting.

CANNABIS CORPSE
Left Hand Pass
Season of Mist
Very similar sound to the band that their name resembles! Yeah, it’s heavy death metal similar to Cannibal Corpse… but i dunno, there seems to be a bit more groove

Good Tiger
The Devil Thinks I’m Sinking – radio single
Blacklight Media / Metal Blade Records
Alternative rock/prog rock. Melodic kind of catchy and classic prog rock type stuff.

Belphegor
Totenritual
Nuclear Blast USA
Brutal, blackened death. Just one song so far, but these guys are a force to be reckoned with. Solid brutality

The Contortionist
Clairvoyant
Entertainment One
Well, this one single was pretty laid back prog rock type stuff… kind of reminded me of Porcupine Tree… I sure hope the rest of this album is a bit heavier

Evil Invaders
Feed Me Violence
Napalm Records
Fast and furious heavy catchy thrash!!

Wage War
Deadweight
Fearless Records/Concord Music Group
A metalcore thing… growly vox making way for emo-ish choruses… decent stuff til the happy singy stuff.

Weapons Of Anew
The Collision Of Love And Hate
OK Good Records
Melodic “solid rock” type metal going on here. Decent grooves, melodies, vocal harmonies, crunchy guitars, just more hard rock-ish.

Go On Great Immortal
Flawed
Msndrstd Music
Melodic, laid back hard rock / alternative rock type stuff pretty catchy and grooving, but but probably not quite metal-like for the Mosh Pit.

 

PURTENANCE
Paradox of Existence
Xtreem Music
Classic death metal with a little bit of dark blackened metal feeling

Ensiferum
Two Paths
Metal Blade Records
Melodic death metal with a little bit of viking/folk thing going on… great stuff once again!

Riot
Army of One (Bonus Edition) Through the Storm (Bonus Edition)
Metal Blade Records
Some reissues and bonus stuff.

Cripper
Follow Me: Kill!
Metal Blade Records
Kind of grooving, kind of thrashy, a bit metalcore… you know… and some good growly female vox!

Caligula’s Horse
In Contact
InsideOut
Prog metal. Mostly meloidic more on the prog rock side of things with a heavier sound (as opposed to like a Dream theater with lighter sound?) Cool stuff for any prog fan.

Devourer
Across the Empty Plains
Self-Release
Black metal… cold, evil, dark, but good groove too

Expander
Endless Computer LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Kind of a grindy thrash. Abrasive vox, maybe heavy fast sludge?

Nocturnes Mist
Diabolical Baptism
Seance Records
Really heavy old school melodic black metal. Nice and evil sounding, fast, brutal and laden with grooves too!

Sándor Vály
Young Dionysos
Ektro
Noise. Background. Noise.

Midnite Hellion
Condemned to Hell
Witches Brew
Melodic thrash… a bit of a classic metal feel, but thrashier? Yeah. not too bad.

Oraculum (Chile)
Always Higher
Invictus Productions
Blackened death metal, maybe with a bit of grind thing happening.

KROSSFYRE
Burning Torches (CD, 12″ MLP)
Hells Headbangers
this is blackened death / thrash. a gallopy thrash thing going on, but with that cold evilness of black metal

LASCAR
Saudade
A Sad Sadness Song
Doomy black metal. 4 long songs, vox are pretty shrieky, no way one could make out ANY words.

Zornheym
Where Hatred Dwells And Darkness Reigns
Label: Non Serviam Records
Symphonic melodic death. Catchy, heavy, a cool metal edge… blackened death feeling too.

Moonlight Desires
Just The Hits: 1981-1985
Infamous Butcher Records
Not sure what the story with this band is, but they do hard rock/metal -ish versions of some catchy 80’s songs like Hungry like the Wolf, Sunglasses at Night, Bettie Davis Eyes, etc. Fun stuff (i’m a sucker for heavy covers of non metal songs!)

Menin
Lord of Pain
Self Released
This is different… kind of a proggy sludge metal. The grungy stoner metal thing going on, but quite the technical stuff goin on too. A bit doomy too

HOWLS OF EBB / KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS
With Gangrene Edges / Voiidwarp
I, Voidhanger Records
Howls of Ebb is some dirty death metal, Khthonic Cerviiks is technical blackened death (a couple really long tracks with some interludes)

Mascharat
Mascharat
Seance Records
Classic black metal… blast beats, melodic stuff, cold guitars, good production

Blood Tyrant / Departure Chandelier
Split 7″ EP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Noisy black metal.

Kaos Krew
Returno
Record label: Inverse Records
Grooving industrial metal, a bit on the solid rock side…

THREE EYES LEFT
The Cult of Astaroth
Argonauta Records
HEavy doomy sludge metal.

Grief & Bliss
Endeavor
Transcending
Kind of a drony black metal, doomy, dark, depressing.

Band: TERRORKULT
Album: Crush The Pious
Label: Barbarian Wrath
Blackeded deathy thrash metal.

Band: DEMONIAC
Album: Intemperance
Label: Witches Brew
This is a melodic-ish thrash metal from Chile. A classic thrash with a bit of a Slayer vibe, maybe a bit more heavy yet melodic too.

Band: MORPHOSYS
Album: The Saw Is Family
Label: Witches Brew
German death metal, meaty grooving riffs, extreme vox and sound too. great stuff.

Band: SOUL DISSOLUTION
Album: Pale Distant Light
Label: Heathen Tribes
Described as “Melancholic Black metal” If they mean kind of doomy depressing black metal? (which they do) spot on!

Band: WOEST
Album: La fin de l’ère Sauvage
Label: Heathen Tribes
I so want this band to be sooo bad, so I can just say, it’s not Woest, it’s the Worst. Well, it’s NOT the worst, but it’s not my thing. described as “Black / Doom / Industrial” I can hear all three… it’s a bit boomy with weak classic lo-fi production. The doom has more of a gothy feel. overall a bit meh.

Band: DUN
Album: Hors du Gouffre
Label: Heathen Tribes
More or less, classic basic black metal.

TRANSIT METHOD
We Won’t Get Out Of Here Alive
Brutal Panda Records
Basic hard rock, almost alt-rock

Neck Deep In Filth
Self-Titled EP
Label: Self-Released
Heavy and crusty hardcore punk from Nepal. fun to think about a band doing this where they’re from!

Solitary Ritual
Solitary Ritual
Self-Released
Maybe a gothy doom thing, vox are a bit, um, different. clean, and foreign… non-native english? I dunno.

Eastern High
Garden Of Heathens
Self-Released
Melodic death-ish, maybe some goth/doom type stuff thrown in. pretty cool… maybe some metalcore or technical stuff going on too.
