Level 10
Chapter One
Frontier
Russell Allen singing in yet another project!  (the man has a family to feed!)  This is more of a straightforward euro power metal thing with some guys from Primal Fear.  So basically something inbetween Adrenaline Mob (Straighthead hard rock) and Symphony X (full on prog metal).  Russell Allen is one of my favorite metal/rock vocalists, so I’m digging this.

Venom
From The Very Depths
Spinefarm
From a band that was at the forefront of true metal waaaay back when, they are still going strong and delivering the goods.  Heavy metal with some groove going on and a pinch of death metal.

The Wild Beyond
The Wild Beyond
Ultra Mega Sound
Melodic commercial hard rock type stuff. Reminds me a little bit of The Cult just a little bit (maybe a bit more heavy).

Napalm Death
Apex Predator
Century Media Records
Grindy death goodness as Napalm Death has pioneered

Diablo Blvd   (Single)
Follow The Dead Lights
Nuclear Blast USA
Some standard mainstream-type rock.  Laid back catchy active rock type stuff.

Xthirt13n
Taste Of The Light
Metal Shop Records
It’s your Judas Priest style of classic metal. Hints of Queensryche and other proggy power metal going on.  Quality stuff and really a sub-genre you don’t hear a lot of “new” stuff from these days.  Not too full on prog, not too power metal, and not all growly deathy.  Just right in the wheelhouse of good classic metal.

Year of The Locust
Home
Phantom Records
Kind of a grungy modern hard rock thing

If These Trees Could Talk
Above the Earth, Below the Sky
Metal Blade Records
Chilled out reissue from 2009, kind of like the Opeth Damnation album, relaxed jammy post-metal type stuff.

If These Trees Could Talk
Red Forest
Metal Blade Records
Chilled out reissue from 2012, kind of like the Opeth Damnation album.

Cry Excess
Ambition Is The S***
Luxor Records
Fairly straightforward standard new metalcore.  Hard rockin’ stuff, clean sung chorus (but not all emo whiney)

Solanum / Epi-Demic
Passages To Lunacy Split CD
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
Solanum is some basic groovin’ death metal with some catchy riffs.  Epi-Demic is some rawly produced old school heavy thrash, maybe a basic heavy old Exodus.

By The Patient
Gehenna
Lifeforce
Grindy melodic death metal

Ingested
The Architect Of Extinction
Century Media
Brutal death metal, with a bit of that brutal “core” feel.  Drums and the backend feel like a freight train rolling through.  Vocals are pissed off and aggressive.

Beardfish
+4626-Comfortzone
InsideOut Music
Cool old school yet modern prog rock.  Not really mosh pit material, but still cool stuff!

Nightingale
Retribution
InsideOut Music
Another album from Dan Swano’s band.  Prog rock/prog metal type stuff. Doesn’t ever get really heavy, just a cool melodic metal thing with some catchy grooves.  (would have made some great mid-90’s aor type stuff!)

Angelus Apatrida
Hidden Evolution
Century Media
Heavy catchy standard thrash metal from Spain.  Great riffs, just enough abrasiveness in the vocals to make it pissed off, but mixed in with the shouts make it a great homage to the bay area.

SORDIDE (from France)
La France a peur
Label: AVANTGARDE MUSIC (Against PR)
A down tempo black metal type thing with some “meh” production.  Yeah you can have some blast beats and cold guitars and melodic stuff too, but when it sounds like it’s coming through an old phone it just takes a lot away for me.

EXTINCTIONIST (from Germany)
PORTALS OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL INVASIONS
Rising Nemesis Records (Against PR)
Technical Brutal Death Metal with gurgly vocals, not much else I can say… it’s good stuff.

Eastfrisian Terror
EastfrisiaApokalypse
Rotten Roll Rex
Standard thrashy catchy death metal.

Tourniquet (from USA)
Onward to Freedom
Pathogenic Records (Tourniquet’s own label) (Against PR)
Christian thrash infused power metal band is back… some cool stuff here.

MARILYN MANSON
The Pale Emperor
Loma Vista
No doubt about it, MM has made his place in the music world, with his albums and especially his live shows… he has a sound that’s all his own too.  This album is right up there with the MM sound, maybe a bit more laid back and melodic…

VOICES
London
Candlelight
Featuring former members of Akerkocke, it’s quite varied, in some parts, its like a Volbeat, others it’s Opeth (death metal and melodic) and just kind of all over the place, but yet brutal and fresh too.

Night Demon
Curse of The Damned
Century Media Records
Just classic metal with big screamy vocals a bit of a thrashy sound, but still full on metal

Raised Fist
From The North
Epitaph Records
Catchy raw punked up hardcore metal, vocals almost seem rapped… sounds a lot like Snot actually.

Bullet
Storm Of Blades
Metalville Records
Classic metal (a la Judas Priest) with a big screamy voice, catchy riffs and stuff, actually maybe sounds a bit like Steel Panther too…

Panzer
Send Um All To Hell
Nuclear Blast USA
Catchy German thrashy metal

Sylosis
Dormant Heart
Nuclear Blast
Thrashy death metal, almost a bit like Strapping Young Lad with how fast and in your face it can be.

Misery Kills
My Ugly Insides
Misery Royalties
Some classic metal with Kreator-like vocals and musical tendencies… pretty good stuff

Visigoth
The Revenant King
Metal Blade
Catchy power metal with a pinch of folk

Lord Dying
Poisoned Altars
Relapse Records
Sludgey metal, reminds me a bit of Crowbar, but with a bit more of a groove and catchiness… maybe Down meets Crowbar

Revolution Saints
“Turn Back Time” Single
Frontiers Music srl
Great catchy stuff with that late 80’s/90’s AOR thing going on:  Copy/paste from the bio info says it all… “Deen Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Bad English), Jack Blades (Night Ranger, Damn Yankees, Shaw/Blades) and Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio) . Put these three rock titans together in a band and you have the exciting new hard rock/melodic rock supergroup REVOLUTION SAINTS.”

SIMUS
Vox Vult
Bakerteam Records
Heavy melodic metal, clean vox, a bit proggy, melodic guitars and some good chugga guitar too.

KERKER (from Germany)
A Dime For The Bleak Faces
Label: Nihilistische KlangKunst (Against PR)
Classic Black metal.  Cold drony guitars, abrasive growly creepy vocals.

EARTH AND PILLARS (from Italy)
Earth I
Label: AVANTGARDE MUSIC (Against PR)
Long drony go nowhere black metal sounding stuff.  I think I hear vocals, but they’re so low in the mix, you can’t really tell.

OBSESSÖR
Assassins of the Pentagram
Deathstrike Records
Fast quick classic thrash, with some death metal tendencies (vocals)… but then vocals also go up to some big time screams too.  Pretty cool stuff.

Cauldron of Hate
Emperor
Inverse
Great thrashy death metal.  Brutal stuff yet a bit catchy and definitely headbangy!  hah.

Thurisaz
Live & Acoustic
Lucky Bastardz
Laid back and acoustic… melodic doomy stuff… a cool cover of Amorphis’ “My Kantele”

Satan’s Host
Pre-dating god Parts 1 & 2
Moribund
A bit of a melodic thrashy metal.  Clean creepy vocals, also shouty screams too. Music is proggy, yet thrashy and death metal-like in parts too.

Crack House
The Hits Just Keep On Coming
Horror Pain Gore Death
Brutal thrash

MELLOWTOY
Lies
Scarlet Records
Melodic Metal, feels like decent commercial “solid rock” type stuff.  Catchy, metalcore, almost nu-metal sounding.

SWEET & LYNCH
Only to Rise
Frontiers Music srl
Had a sampler last year and it was pretty decent.  You know, straightforward hard rock type stuff from Matthew Sweet and George Lynch.

Jan 122015
 

The Last Ten Seconds of Life
Soulless Hymn
Density
Metalcore, or, maybe more on the brutalcore side of stuff, but with some downtuned down tempo groove stuff going on too.  Pretty cool as it stays heavy and isn’t your cookie cutter metalcore.

Falloch
This Island, Our Funeral
Candlelight
Kind of a blackened funeral doomy type thing.  Melodic, yet dark and creepy at the same time.

Undivided
The Way Things Are
Down For Blood Recordings
A punked up hardcore with a pinch of thrash.

The Longing
Bleed
FPR Records
Female fronted basic metal, probably more on the hard rock side of things.  Nothing too remarkable… she’s got a good voice, music is kind of a light metal/easy power metal.

Shadow Eden
Perpetual Motion
ShredGuy Records
Some pretty decent metal instrumental stuff.  Kind of proggy, kind of power metally, a bit of a laid back vibe… not a shitload of noodling and overplaying.  Just cool metal without vocals.

Dead City Ruins
Dead City Ruins
Metalville Records
Southern fried metal with an ozzy-like lead vocalist

THE WAY I AM (from France)
Apocalypse? No way!
Klonosphere
Female fronted hard rock… doesn’t get into metal much at all, vox are not all opera-ey… just a decent rockin’ groove.

DWAIL (from France)
The Human Concern – Judgment & Fall
Klonosphere
Catchy groovin’ thrashy metal with a pinch of punk

Volahn
Aq’ab’al
Iron Bonhead / The Ajna Offensive / Crepusculo Negro
Raw old school black metal

Infernal Manes
Infernal Manes
Edged Circle Productions
An 80’s/90’s sounding thrashy “metal” band.

Cold Snap
World War 3
Eclipse Records
This reminds me of some nu-metal type stuff, a little older Korn type stuff with some newer slipknot type stuff, and well, some metalcore too.

Pain Of Salvation
Falling Home
InsideOut
I remember when these guys fit more into a metal category.  Now they’re more or less in the prog rock/hard rock category.  Even some jazzy stuff going on here too.

KAIPA
Sattyg
InsideOut Music
Female fronted prog rock… not really Mosh Pit material…. but for that prog show I wish I had? yeah!

The Crown
Death Is Not Dead
Century Media
First album in 5 years, and they really never had a dud in their discography… why start now?  This is 100% The Crown! Catchy fast thrashy deathy metal.  Great riffs, abrasive pissed off vocals and just all good stuff.

Gnosis (Florida)
The Third-Eye Gate LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Dark creepy feeling death metal, reminds me of old Morbid Angel, but a bit more “underground” sounding.

Infra (Portugal)
Initiation on the Ordeals of Lower Vibrations 7″ EP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Dark dooomy creepy plodding black metal..

Garotting Deep / For
Void Asceticism – split LP
Iron Bonehead
Garotting Deep is echoey old school black metal, and so is F0r.  Meh.

Midnight Bullet
Lose My Face
Inverse Records
Catchy hard rock with maybe a bit of a Motorhead thing going on… then you got your early 90’s sounding power ballad stuff too… not too shabby.

The Sitting Bull And The Bullshitters
Still Undead
Inverse
Melodic rock stuff… ummm, sorry, you won’t hear this on the Mosh Pit.

Dethlehem
Destroyers of the Realm
Self Released
Thrashy, a bit proggy and melodic.  It’s just overall good plain ol meat and potatoes metal.
