 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 2/20/17
Feb 182017
 

UNEARTHLY TRANCE
Stalking The Ghost
Relapse
Doomy metal with a stoner metal feel, a sludgey thing too

Edenbridge
The Great Momentum
SPV
Big epic proggy symphonic metal with female vox.

Solus Deus
The Plague
EMP
This band has former members of Chimaira, Bleed The Sky, Evanescence, Living Sacrifice.  Pretty much a death metal band with a classic brutal-ish sound and a big groove.  Decent stuff!

Cut Up
From Ear to Ear – radio single
Metal Blade Records
Just a single, but great classic brutal death metal.

Witherfall
Nocturnes and Requiems
Self Released
Last recorded release of our friend Adam Sagan.  The samples that were early released sounded great.  Technical proggy melodic death metal… but the vox I guess don’t really fit the death metal… so musically it’s “melodic death-ish” but really it’s something more along the lines of a Nevermore.  great stuff! Catchy, heavy and melodic too!

Six Feet Under
Torment
Metal Blade Records
These last few SFU albums have been pretty good with the new-ish lineup.  Music on this one is more brutal and heavy and less of a slower groove… the vox are barked out as only Chris Barnes can do.  Good stuff!

Metal Blade Records 35th Anniversary Tour
Radio Sampler
Metal Blade Records
A bunch of songs for bands on this tour to get us talking about it!   Whitechapel, Goatwhore, Cattle Decapitation, Allegaeon and Necromancing the Stone

Warseid
A New Land To Find
SoundAge Productions
One of the best local metal bands and they just keep getting better!  This one has a bit of an epic black metal thing while staying a bit in the melodic death thing too.  You can’t go wrong here.

Violent Opposition
Courage And Conviction
Horror Pain Gore Death
A LOT of less than one minute songs of punked up hardcore type stuff.

The Wild!
Wild At Heart
Entertainment One
Kind of a classic rock/southern hard rock thing.  (just one song so far) seems like fun lovin’ hard rock.

Thobbe Englund
Sould My Soul
Metalville Records
Former Sabaton guitarist’s solo project. Obviously good guitar work. this is textbook “classic metal” going on here.  The sound is a bit raw and a bit of a throwback to maybe some early 80’s / 70’s metal.

Suicide Silence
Suicide Silence
Nuclear Blast USA
A lot of talk around this new album and it’s new “direction” and yeah… as a flag bearer of the brutalcore/extreme metalcore scene… this is definitely not that.  A more downtempo melodic groove thing with more clean-ish vox.  This is closer to a Filter than anything else.  Sorry, but even on its own merits, this might just get a “meh” from me.

Immolation
Atonement
Nuclear Blast USA
well, you got yourself some great classic brutal death metal going on here.  This is what american death metal is all about.  Staying true to their formula.  Good stuff!

Ex Deo
The Immortal Wars
Napalm Records
This is 3rd album from the Kataklysm front man’s side project and it slays.  Great catchy and brutal and melodic with a bit of a symphonic flair filling in to make it feel more “epic”  great stuff, kind of technical in parts too.

Striker
Striker
Independent
another classic metal thing.  Heavy, catchy and big metal voice!

Torrefy
The Infinity Complex
Self-Release
PRetty cool extreme tech blackened melodic death.  A little bit of a thrashy gallup, but extreme and melodic death-ish… all with hints of black metal.

Helén
Helén
Svart Records
melodic folky doom type stuff.

Sons Ov Omega
Reign
Label: Black Lion Records
This is some cool proggy melodic death, kind of like that older pre-70’s prog Opeth.  Growly vox, melodic stuff, catchy… great stuff!

Antropomorphia
Sermon ov Wrath
Metal Blade Records
Two reviews in a row with the word “ov”  yeah!  That usually means brutal, right!?  Yeah, this is meaty brutal death metal with some big grooves.  good stuff.

IN THOUSAND LAKES
Age of Decay
Xtreem Music
Heavy melodic death metal, very comparable to Amon Amarth.  Get your horns up and headbang!

LEATHERMASK
LITHIC
SLEASZY RIDER
Classic metal, a tiny big thrash/grooving.

SCARVED
LODESTONE
SLEASZY RIDER
Female fronted hard rock.  Good catchy stuff, but really more on the hard rock side of things and not metal… maybe classic metal type stuff.

MIDNIGHT
Shox of Violence (12″ MLP, CD, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
Raw classic dark metal / black/death metal type stuff… one man band.  Kind of like old Venom i guess?   Good stuff.

Demoncy
Within the Sylvan Realms of Frost LP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Lo-fi old school black metal.  I had to check my speakers to make sure the bass/midrange was working, I think this is only tweeter material.  tedius to listen to.

Asofy
Nessun Luogo
Avantgarde Music
Doomy post metal… slow and depressing.

Reaping Asmodeia
Impuritize
Prosthetic Records
I’d have to say that this is a brutal-core melodic death sort of thing.  Technical, brutal, catchy too.  Good stuff!

ZOMBIE MOTORS WRECKING YARD
Supersonic Rock n Roll
Napalm Records
So when you hear this band name, what do you think it’d sound like?  Kind of a rob zombie southern fried catchy biker metal type thing?  yeah.  It sounds like that.  decent stuff.

Arduini / Balich
Dawn of Ages
Cruz Del Sur Music
I listened to the first 4:20 of this… and it was drony doomy post-metal… but then it just kicked into more of a stoner metal thing with some more big grooves and catchy licks.  So yeah, a long slow start, but a better pay off than I’m used to.  So, it’s a little bit like a lighter more doomy COC.

Mordbrand
Wilt
Carnal Records
Kind of a viking metal feel, but yeah… again, some good comparisons to Amon Amarth come up again, melodic death with a full meaty sound.

TREPID ELUCIDATION
Upcoming Reality”
Label:  Mosher Records
Technical Death metal, brutal, catchy and yeah, my go to word… grooving.  which means rather than a full just headbang, you get a little body movement too.  good stuff and classic death metal sounding too.

Spectral Descent
Descending The Astral Plane
Horror Pain Gore Death
Death metal, good classic groove kind.  Vox are a bit raw, production is ok… decent stuff.

Persefone
Aathma
ViciSolum Records
Progressive metal, then the vox kick in, and it’s more on the prog death/melodic death side of things… but yeah, very much into the technical prog world.  Great stuff.

Bathsheba
Servus
Svart Records
As with most stuff on this label, this is dooomy.  A bit on the black metal side, down tempo and female vox.  ok for what it is, but probably not for the mosh Pit.

Baxter Stockman
Haul
Ektro
I guess this could be called stoner hard rock. A little punky, but it’ ok.

Bloodbound
War Of Dragons
AFM Records
Ooooh, big epic power metal!  We just don’t get much of this anymore.  A little dragonforce, but kind of rhapsody-like too.  Good stuff!

Sainted Sinners
Sainted Sinner
El Puerto Records Gbr
Classic rock… kind of hard rock. lots of hammond organ, and a classic AOR type rock sound.

POWER TRIP
Nightmare Logic
Southern Lord / Earsplit PR
Ooohhh  we’re talking some classic heavy thrash here.  As far as thrash goes, this would be fast and not quite “brutal”  but speed metal style heavy!

Rückwater
Bonehead
Record label: Secret Entertainment
A bit of a hardcore groove metal/rock

GOATMOON
Stella Polaris (CD, LP, TAPE)
Werewolf Records
Classic black metal.  Cold, Evil but with that good headbanging groove.

Skogen
Eld
Nordvis Produktion
Classic black metal here too.  Decent stuff, a bit more brutal and death metal influenced in parts, but also pretty laid back and melodic in others.

FJOERGYN
Lucifer Es
Lifeforce
They call it Avantgarde Black Metal… it’s kind of like black metal but mix in some Rammstein (clean german vox) and it makes it a littel creepy but cool too.

Murkocet
Digging Mercy’s Grave
Self-Release
Catchy thrashy metal, kind of on the brutal side, growly vox, more of a melodic groove metal

Ominous Eclipse
The Horde (single)
Self-Release
One track of technical death metal.   one long track of tech death and it’s good stuff.

Event Horizon
A Nightmare of Symmetry
Self Released
Prog metal, a bit slow and acoustic-ish in parts, then it gets all technical and meedly guitar-like… also getting into some melodic death with growly vox too.

Achiote
Loneliness of Endless Days
Concorde
Prog rock with some organ/keyboards, a bit of a new Opeth type of sound.  Good catchy throwback vibe

Feb 052017
 

Unwill
Past Life
(eOne)
Kind of an alternative metal.

Mastodon
“Show Yourself” [Single]
Reprise
A bit more accessible than their past stuff, still good, catchy and rockin’

NIDINGR
The High Heat Licks Against Heaven
Season of Mist
This falls into that new wave of black n roll…. grooving black metal.  heavy and brutal, yet with a big groove too.

Evocation
Children of Stone – radio single
Metal Blade Records
Brutal, melodic and grooving.  Me want more!

Overkill
The Grinding Wheel
Nuclear Blast USA
Consistently good.  That’s Overkill for you. Catchy classic thrash every time.  Great stuff once again!

Once Human
Evolution
earMUSIC
This has a very Chimaira feeling to it for me.  Catchy, heavy, a little brutal… melodic/death metal like too.  This is the second album from these guys founded by Logan Mader

Devilskin
Be Like The River
Music Management (NZ)
Female fronted metal.  Kind of an accessible groove metal/hard rock type thing with a little crunch

The O’Reilly’s And The Paddyhats
Sign Of The Fighter
Metalville Records
Well, this one isn’t quite metal… more of a ska/folk/flogging molly/Dropkick Murphy type thing.  Might be cool more around St. Patty’s day!?

Ande
“Het Gebeente”
Label:  Self-Released
Atmospheric Black Metal… kinda doomy and slow, but evil and dark vocal-wise

Praecognitvm
Inalienable Catharsis TAPE
Iron Bonehead
Old school sounding black metal.  Not too bad for a “tape”  (the files are digital! LOL)  But yeah… nothing real groundbreaking.

Weltesser
Crestfallen
Prosthetic Records
Kind of slow-doomy sludgey… not a big fan.

Pillorian
Obsidian Arc
Eisenwald
Melodic blackened metal.  A little bit of a slower doom pace, but not all post-metal and blah.  There’s actually a bit of a melodic death thing happening too.  Dark and foreboding but some groove too… and yeah it gets going into some full fast black metal in parts as well.

Mors Principium Est.
Embers Of A Dying World
AFM Records
10 February 2017
