One song… classic hard rockin metal type stuff with Jorn.  Not quite as cheesy as his recent cover’s album.  Guy can sing!

Ikillya
War For An Idea
Urban Yeti Records
A kind of melodic hardcore, maybe classic-ish deathcore.  It’s a bit of a classic metal in parts, but vox and some parts are more extreme… overall some decent grooving.

Beltfed Weapon
Raining Plague
Independent
A heavy power metal with a great metal edge… a bit thrashy with some good chunk but with a high screamy power metal voice.  Great stuff.

Mountains Crave
As We Were When We Were Not
Avantgarde Music
Kind of a doomy black metal.  A bit depressing and dark, but melodic and atmospheric too.

Saule
Saule

Label: Discouraged Records
Grindy death metal, quick fast brutal songs..> Good stuff!

KALEDON
Carnagus – Emperor Of The Darkness
( Album, May 15th )
This sounded pretty good…. kind of an epic melodic death metal big vox, big epic symphonic stuff… and the version I got is plagued by voiceovers telling me what it is.  What is this 2002?  No thanks.

Nargaroth
Era of Threnody
Inter Arma Productions
Melodic blackened death metal.  Decent groove while staying evil and “troo”  Some melodic parts seem a bit more proggy but still have that cold evil black metal feeling…

THE WIZARDS
Full Moon in Scorpio
Fighter Records
Cool catchy stoner metal/hard rock. A bit of a throwback, but with a modern melodic hard rock sound too.

Sektarism

Kalopsia
Angelplague
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
Death metal, big grooves, Good heavy stuff, some technicality and cool guitar solos all while being brutal.

The Night Flight Orchestra
Amber Galactic
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
While not really all that metal, it features members of Soilwork and Arch Enemy… it’s their 3rd album… I’m a fan.  This has that throwback to true classic 70’s rock… catchy as hell, and it’s cool to hear Speed from Soilwork just rocking out with his clean vox.  A few songs get a little heavier and are probably good for a spin or two on the Mosh Pit.

Panphage
Storm
Nordvis Produktion
Classic Black metal, it’s heavy and has a good melodic quality too…

MOUNTAINEER
Sirens & Slumber
Lifeforce
A bit of an alt-metal.  Clean vox, guitars are a bit grungy.. a little doomy, a little stoner rock.   just not much for the Mosh Pit.

…On the Precipice of the Ancient Abyss
Self-Release
Classic black metal.  Cold guitars, shreiking vox and a dark evil quality.  Decent production

“What We Left Behind…”

“V-EP”
Self Released
A raw metalcore/hardcore thrashy type thing.

Label: Geisterasche Organisation
Atmospheric black metal A good melodic feel, a bit doomy, but then it gets a bit harsh all while staying dark and moody.

Kind of a classic death metal.  Meaty grooves, just a little black metal feel, but also some big beefy doomy riffs too.

HAREM SCAREM
United
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Classic hard rocking AOR-ish type stuff.  This is catchy cool stuff, but a bit of a stretch to be called Metal.

SNAKECHARMER
Second Skin
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Very similar to the Harem Scarem, and well most of the stuff on this label.  Good classic early 90’s sounding hard rock.

EARTH ELECTRIC
Vol. 1: Solar
Season of Mist
A sort of stoner/doomy metal throwback.  Catchy and psychedelic, maybe a little like Ghost.

ULSECT
Ulsect
Season of Mist
Kind of a brutal blackened doom metal

WARRANT
Louder Harder Faster
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
We all know about Warrant… and as long as they’ve been around, this is only their 10th album.  This is some decent hard rock stuff. Cool to see them with a refreshed steady lineup for almost 10 years now.

And with the other Frontiers releases above, this is along the same lines, a good classic hard rock/AOR type groove with some great clean powerful vox.

Motionless In White
Graveyard Shift
