The Trigger Complex
Kind of a laid back thing with a little light punk feel
Classic thrashy type stuff, along with some good groove metal. Just all in all great thrashy stuff… and yeah, they’re from the Bay Area, so they have a good base to work from!
We Are Islands, After All
At first with a good melodic keyboardy groove with a pinch of goth, it sounds like heavier Lacuna Coil musically… but vocally it’s more of a hardcore screaming… then we get to some melodic almost emo-core-ish singing too.
This band has been doing its thing for quite some time and great to have a new one! This is how power metal should be… catchy, heavy, fast, a good edge and yeah a prog metal feel too. Vox, music, production all top notch.
Stalking the Ghost Radio Singles
meaty doom. Depressing and slow, but still heavy
Me And That Man
“My Church Is Black”
What. Is. This.!? Why send stuff like this to metal radio? Johnny Cash type stuff. ugh. I get the “darkness” of the sing title and stuff, but this is basically a country song.
Protest The Hero
Razor and Tie
I haven’t heard new stuff from these guys in a while. They are one of my favorite of this metalcore thing… They seem to prog it up and they have a guy that can really sing without being all emo, or even growly. Just everything works in this band.
Season of Mist
Got the single of this a week or two ago… great technical instrumental melodic death type stuff. A djenty almost Cynic feeling going on. Great stuff.
Not for Music
Season of Mist
Kind of a depressing doom. Something in the bio says that they “further their exploration of absolute sonic dread” And yeah, sonic dread.
Surtr (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
Blackened death metal… one song single so far… good melodic and cold black metal feeling, but a full on death metal feeling too
Gods Of Violence
God Of Violence
Can these guys do wrong? A light instrumental intro going right into that classic brutal Kreator sound. I want more!
Nothing To You (Single)
This Korn-like rap metal band is back… never quite made the cut on the Mosh Pit before… probably not quite our thing.
Theaters Of Demensions
Epic symphonic female fronted (operatic) metal. She gets a bit more of a standard clean female vocal in other parts too, so it’s not just full on opera singing… But it is pretty epic full classical/symphonic metal type stuff… and yeah the metal stuff does keep it kind of heavy in parts too, and other more power metal stuff too. A little folk stuff too.
HEAVY BABY SEA SLUGS
Teenage Graveyard Party
Label: Heavy Baby Records
Kind of a sludgey punk/alternative thing. Meh.
Good brutal death metal, Classic grooving stuff.
Under the Seals of Death
Brutal blackened death metal. Maybe a little grindy, full on growly gurgles, blast beasts, fast everything.
Some classic stoner rock/hard rock. Good Groove, a vocal that reminds me a little bit of Spiritual Beggars.
A Breach of Silence
Screamy metalcore. melodic Hardcore feel, some screamy vox, and clean vox too.
Like Stars in a Neon Sky
A little bit of a modern metal feel, some proggy metal stuff, some more just standard metal and yeah, a commercial hard rock/metal thing going on too. catchy songs, melodic clean vox.
World Of Silence MMXVII
This is a power metal/prog type of thing
Mustan Kuun Lapset
Label: Inverse Records
Kind of a melodic death/black metal. A little bit of an Amorphis feel, decent grooves and stuff.
THE OMINOUS CIRCLE
Good old grooving death metal with a little bit of a black metal vibe/evilness
RIDE FOR REVENGE
Thy Horrendous Yearning (LP)
Kind of a doomy blackened stoner thing… maybe a little raw punk thing too
GLARE OF THE SUN
Doomy post-rock/metal. A bit slow and depressing, yet melodic and yeah sad…
Dead Shores Rising
Great melodic death. Huge grooves, big meaty riffs, catchy and heavy too. A little bit of an Amon Amarth type of feeling
FALL OF CARTHAGE
“The Longed-For Reckoning”
Label: MDD Records
A little bit thrash, a bit on the just standard modern new metal thing. Catchy chugga chugga riffage, not quite heavy thrash, but just a basic thrash-tinged just good old “metal”
Tenebrae in Perpetuum
La Genesi: 2001-2002
LoFi black metal. next.
The Catalyst vol. 1: Control
Melodic death metal from Finland. A good edge, a bit of a little power/prog metal feel with heavy keyboards… vox are abrasive with a good heavy sound. You know what, it reminds me a bit of Strapping Young Lad!
Turm am Hang LP
This is melodic death with a little bit of a viking metal feel…and since they’re from Germany, they have that little extra edge… and to make it even more edgy? it’s all in German too!
Dance With Devils
This is some proggy female fronted metal. Kind of a symphonic and epic feel… cool stuff that keeps it to the point and doesn’t mess around
Band: Axis Of Despair
Album: Mankind Crawls
Label: Give Praise records
Kind of a grindcore, but really a good grooving death metal too.
Band: HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH / BEARTRAP
Label: Give Praise records | To Live A Lie | Here and Now Records | Riotous Outburst
LOL this whole EP is One minute, 44 seconds long and 8 tracks betwen two bands. Fast, to the point punked up metal. fun.
Label: Nadir Music
Kind of a groove metal, a little stoner metal, a big meaty riff factory.
Weapons of Thrash Destruction
Test Your Metal
Now this is frickin’ thrash, man! Fast, heavy, raw, almost brutal too, but just keeping that fast catchy heavy thrash thing. Great stuff.
Chapter I: Introspect
This was pretty cool and brutal, with a bit of a djent feeling… brutalcore… then a total melodic/mallcore type of clean vox chorus. I just don’t know man.
Banging On The Pentagram
Label: Witches Brew
This is some classic thrashy stuff. A little raw, but a decent basic classic thrash thing.
The Night Is Young (single)
Just some modern hard rocking stuff, kind of like a Volbeat.
The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues
Former Kyuss frontman… this is mostly acoustic, great vox, but just not really metal… cool laid back guitar/vox stuff
WARBRINGER – Radio Promo
Just having a single from this band just isn’t fair. Great heavy thrash… so much groove, headbanging and yeah… awesome. Bring it on!
