Lynch Mob
Main Offender (single)
RatPak Records
This is some good classic hard rocking stuff. melodic and catchy and yeah, might even be worth a spin, as Lynch Mob has always been a little bit more heavy/gritty than a lot of the bands they get lumped in with. (And Oni Logan is singing — so you can’t go wrong)

MR. BIG

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 7/17/17
Jul 152017
 

The Nerve Machine
FB: https://www.facebook.com/nervemachine/
A bit of a Disturbed sound, a modern metal with a little prog metal thing going on too.

M.O.D.
Busted, Broke, And American
Megaforce
Following the tradition of most MOD albums, thrashy hardcore with lyrics saying like it is (according to Billy Milano) which of course make people laugh too. LOL yeah! First album in 10 years and billy says it’ll be the last. wahhh.

Dayseeker
Dreaming is Sinking /// Waking Is Rising
Spinefarm
Kind of an alt-metal metalcore type thing, some heavier stuff, melodic stuff and clean, um, almost emo sounding vox.

Limbonic Art
Spectre Abysm
Candlelight
Classic black metal, melodic and doomy

Raven Black
Seven Sins
WURM Group
This was sent and reviewed in April and now again in July… until I get to the bottom of it, here’s my review from before….
Female fronted alternative type metal. A bit gothy/arty, good mix of creepy sung/growly vox, some decent grooves… kind of reminds me of otep.

Soul Remnants
Ouroboros
Entertainment One
Heavy and grooving melodic-ish death metal. Kind of a brutal feel, but not like full on wall of sound, this is just good heavy grooving death metal.

Wintersun
The Forest Seasons
Nuclear Blast USA
4 tracks, each named for a season of blackened prog metal goodness. Kind of a blackened death with maybe some folk/prog and power metal stuff all going on. cool stuff!

The Midnight Ghost Train
Cypress Avenue
Napalm Records
A kind of grooving stoner metal/rock… decent stuff, just doesn’t get too heavy.

Aeraco
Batized By Fire
Dark Star Records
Traditional classic metal type stuff, decent groove, occasional heavier moment… but overall, some decent anthemic hard rockin’ stuff.

Decrepit Birth
Anis Mundi
Nuclear Blast USA
Crazy fast technical death metal. They’ve always been brutal yet technical and maybe a notch above typical death… great stuff once again!

Edguy
Monuments
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
5 new tracks, 22 old ones, and a previously unreleased track… Classic german power metal!

Blind Guardian
Live Beyond The Spheres
Nuclear Blast
3 CD Live album recorded on various Euro tour dates from 2015. First live album in 14 years! After seeing them recently, it’s kind of cool to hear this and remember how good this band is live.

BARBARIAN (Italy)
Barbarian (7″ EP)
Hells Headbangers
2 song ep of some kind of extreme thrash type stuff.

As Paradise Falls
Digital Ritual
Eclipse Records
This is kind of a brutal metalcore type thing. Solid heavy and a bit technical-ish, a little meshuggah like precsion sound.

Crack House
Still Alive!
Horror Pain Gore Death
seemingly a live album of some grindy thrash metal with some humor. Great heavy and catchy and fun too!

FORMICARIUS
BLACK MASS RITUAL
LABEL: SCHWARZDORN PRODUCTION
This is some cool blackened epic metal, maybe like a behemoth meets rhapsody meets dragonforce and dimmu borgir. Enough of an evil black metal feel with a proggy melodic death thing going on.

WHORE OF BETHLEHEM
Extinguish The Light
Black Market Metal Label
Blackend death metal… kind of text book… big meaty death metal with the cookie monster growls accented by some blast beats and cold black metal guitars… Mostly brutal death metal…

Bloody Times
Destructive Singles
Self Released
Kind of a raw (production) classic “metal” a little thrashy, with some grooves… maybe along the lines of a WASP or Accept type of sound.

The Tangent
The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery
InsideOut
A little jazzy and laid back prog rock leaning towards some hard rocking stuff here and there. Probably not for the mosh pit, but decent stuff for a prog fan.

Ingurgitating Oblivion
Vision Wallows In Symphonies Of Light
Self Released
Long songs, death metal, but, like prog death metal. melodic and quirky and brutal… 4 tracks interesting stuff! A little doomy, black metal too.

Astrarot
We Can’t Win
Self Released
Kind of industrial, melodic death, alt-metal, metalcore and a little djent.

Band: SamadhiSitaram
Album: KaliYuga BABALON
Label: Sliptrick records
A grooving heavy death metal – metalcore/deathcore type thing.

Superbeast
A New Future
Self
Brutal death metal, but maybe with a thrashy groove going on. Production is a bit raw… something tells me the guitar player did the mastering.

Sable Beldam
Cryptic Void EP
Self Released
This is sort of a melodic death, maybe blackened thrash… Good catchy hooks, extreme screamy vox, fast yet melodic-ish too.

De Profundis
Decayed 2007 – 2017 Compilation
Zero Tolerance Magazine
10 years of this band, so here’s a compilation! Great progressive black metal.

INK
Loom
Self Released
Gothy alternative rock.

Jul 062017
 

Execration
Return to the Void
Metal Blade Records
Blackened death metal with a bit more on the black metal side. Good heavy edge, maybe a bit heavy slayer and melodic death stuff too.

Bloodclot
Up in Arms
Metal Blade Records
Kind of a heavy punked up thrashing hardcore type stuff. Features former Danzig/QOTSA and CroMags members. cool stuff.

Integrity
Howling, For The Nightmare Shall Consume
Relapse
Heavier thrashy hardcore, they’ve been around a long long time and still have a good raw yet cohesive sound.

RIVER BLACK
River Black
Season of Mist
A bit of a downtempo doomy death-ishmetal. Big meaty grooves, shouting/growly vox.

Season of Mist
Doomy melodic metal with a bit of a meedly black metal guitar, clean vox.

In The Presence of Wolves
Of Two Minds, Stages 1-2: The Ape And The Cage
Self-Released
Melodic prog rock/metal. Takes a little while to get going but once it does, you don’t want to stop listening to hear what they’re going to do next, it has a little Fair to Midland thing going, but then maybe hits into full Dream Theater type stuff (without the cheese)

Stone Sour
Hydrograd
Roadrunner
Well, Stone Sour hasn’t really been the Mosh Pit’s thing… maybe a song here or there.. this has some catchy fun tracks on it, seems to be more laid back. Some songs seem heavier and cool too… I’m digging a lot of the stuff on here

Next To None
Phases
EMP
Well, this one doesn’t mess around much, a bit slipknot, a bit prog… some like, beautiful piano passages all mixed in with a proggier heavier (good) Slipknot type stuff. Heavy, and catchy and complex… and kind of amazing that they’re almost all still teenagers. The only knock on it, is the clean vox get a little emo-mall-core ish in parts.

APOTHESARY
ACCEPT LOSS FOREVER
M-THEORY AUDIO
Brutal yet catchy grooving death metal. They came through town last year the year before opening for some 5 band bill… and I missed them… this is good stuff, it’s not just death metal/death core… there’s some neat almost proggy stuff going on.

Decapitated
Anticult
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Never anything bad from these guys… serving up some of the best metal… and yeah with melody too, however, the vox are usually just all on harsh, so yeah, techy melodic deathy thrash stuff… great stuff…

Fragile Mortals
The Dark Project
Bumblefoot Music
A little bit of a rap-metal, nu-metal, but kind of a solid rock catchy commercial metal type thing too… and maybe a tiny bit industrial. . not too bad.

12 Stones
Picture Perfect
Cleopatra Records
Grooving stoner-ish metal, more along the lines of a band that sounds like Tool

Bloody Hammers
The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers
Napalm Records
A little goth and hard rock… a bit like a hard rocked up Volbeat.

Dead Label
Throne Of Bones
Nuerra Records
Grooving thrashy kind of metalcore, but more or less death-ish too. Kind of a heaver grooving Lamb of God. Great stuff.

RON CORONA

Indie rockabilly rock type stuff… Maybe a bit punk/country? either way… pass.

God Root
Salt And Rot
Horror Pain Gore Death
Kind of doom/post metal

TOTENGOTT
Doppelgänger

This is a bit of a “Black n roll” but doomy post metal too. Some moments of good grooves and deathy stoner metal… but mostly long depressing songs.

Ewigkeit
Cosmic Man
Svart Records
A little bit of a doom and stoner metal thing going on… Decent energy, so it’s not all depressing.

Album: Na Puti K Zabveniyu
Label: Endless Desperation Productions
Melodic doomy death metal from Russia (and in russian)… there’s a tiny bit of a goth feeling going on too… not too bad.

Devil Creations
Hell’s Exit
642706 Records
This is some traditional just “metal” a little bit thrashy/modern metal-ish with some meaty grooves.

Dzö-nga
The Sachem’s Tales
Avantgarde Music
Melodic and ambient folky type stuff going into full on evil black metal.

Bludy Gyres
Echoes of a Distant Scream
SoMan Records
A bit doom/stoner… kind of like a sabbath/trouble sort of thing. Decent grooves
