Exumer
Hostile Defiance – radio single
Metal Blade Records
Here we got some good old classic thrashy metal… catchy, fast riffage… cool stuff.

Rosy Vista
Unbelievable
SPV
All female German metal band… this has a decent edge while being a classic metal type thing, great vox,

Dream Theater
Distance Over Time
Inside Out Music
So far a handful of singles have been released and as my “favorite band” they seem to be well, “dream theater” nothing new or ground breaking, nothing really bad or “astonishing” as it were. Good solid classic prog metal dream theater… melodic decent stuff.

Queensryche
The Verdect
Century Media Records
Like the Dream theater, just a couple singles so far… It amazes me how Todd can sound just like old Geoff. Musically this is a bit more of the classic proggy metal Ryche we all fell in love with. And yeah, so they only have two original members playing on this, it’s more “Queensryche” than the last bunch of albums have been!

Candlemass
The Door To Doom (EP)
Napalm Records
Pioneers of Doom are still churning out the instant classics… this is just a single “Astorolus The Great Octopus”

Last In Line
II
Frontiers Music SRL.
The former dio band is back and with a new bass player… good solid classic metal. the one single “landslide” that I have is a little on the power ballad side of things, so i’m looking forward to more.

Rezet
Deal With It!
Metalville Records
Classic metal with a bit of a crunchy thrashy thing going on… some cool grooves, decent stuff.

While She Sleeps
So What!
Spinefarm Records
I think I know where In Flames got their new sound from… well, actually this kind of band influenced In Flames and vise versa… it has a bit of that modern metal core, but also that catchy cool melodic death thing going on.

Rhapsody Of Fire
The Eighth Mountain
AFM Records
22 February 2019
One of the first bands to have the full on epic proggy power metal thing… and now with a new singer and drummer, this sounds pretty heavy and solid, not quite as hollywood epic, but still heavy solid epic power metal… great stuff.

Murmur
The Boundless Black

22 February 2019
This was the band that was originally the “original” band called Incubus… yeah that one from the 80’s/90’s, not the “popular” Incubus… well, later on they changed their name and this is their new album… just full on classic good heavy catchy death metal. Good stuff.

Doom and death metal in this release are like chocolate and peanut butter…they just go well together, a bit of a down tempo doom chanty vox going along with some harsh growly vox and faster stuff too.

Tragedy : All Metal Tribute To The Bee Gees And Beyond
”Aquarius/ Let The Sunshine In”
Beautyrock Records
A all metal BeeGees tribute and beyond! This is the first single of Aquarius/Let the Sunshine in. I am a sucker for this type of stuff, so I love it!

Allegaeon
Stellar Tidal Disruption – radio single
Metal Blade Records
19 April 2019
one of my most anticipated releases of the year! Their last album was a masterpiece… I’m sure this one will be too, they have been consistently great with the brutal technical death metal thing… this single fits the bill too!

Downfall Of Gaia
Ethic Of Radical Finitude
Metal Blade Records
5 February 2019
this has that cold black metal feel, while having a doomy melodic kind of post metal-ish thing (but not like so much that I hate it like most post-metal!) pretty good stuff, might have to dig deeper.

Skid Row
30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition
Rhino Entertainment
This album came out just before I was getting into the heavier music, I knew the hits, but never really gave the album a good full listen. Good excuse to now, and really appreciate how good of a front man Baz can be… firing on all cylinders here and now in remastered goodness.

Spirits Of Fire
Spirits Of Fire
Frontiers SRL.
Solid classic / power metal with a strong Judas Priest vibe. A supergroup of Chris Caffrey, Ripper Owens, Mark Zonder, Steve DiGiorgio, great stuff!

El Dios Malo
Necessary Evils
Double Trouble Productions
Here we have some classic metal with a bit of a groove metal edge. Clean vox, dirty groovin’ guitars with some great catchy grooves

Beast In Black
From Hell With Love
Nuclear Blast USA
This is a power metal band with a wall of sound and maybe more of a commercial metal take on things

Band: Uuntar

Kind of a dark gloomy black metal, a little folk feel, they say “pagan” and yeah… that too.

Release date: February 4th, 2019
This is a solid classic black metal, good production, brutal grindy yet a little bit catchy and cold sound.

Band: Meslamtaea
Album: Niets en niemendal
Label: Heidens Hart Records
Release date: February 4th, 2019
Classic black metal, a little doomy, but with some cool melodic breaks, vox are more of a shouty scream and not as shrill as normal black metal.

Band: Blackdeath
Album: Phantasmhassgorie
Label: Heidens Hart Records
Release date: February 4th, 2019
Black metal at its base, but it’s got a melodic catchy groove while staying dark and heavy.

LORD DIVINE
Facing Chaos
Fighter Records
5 February 2019
Has a bit of a Symphony X feel to it, cool proggy power metal, big voice, keyboards, great guitar work, heavy edge… vox are a bit like Ripper Owens

8 February 2019
A fast, catchy heavy modern thrash with that of course throwback thrash too. Great stuff!

This is an instrumental thrashy/prog metal thing, lots of guitar work, but a good meaty heavy sound too.

Doomy metal with some longer songs, a little slow. That’s doom, right?

Sludgey doom metal.
