Mar 232015
 

ADD
Core
Pavement Music
Female fronted melodic near-thrash metal.  Good catchy stuff, but really more on the solid rock side of things… but probably enough metal edge for the Mosh Pit too.

Dodheimsgard
A umbra Omega
Peaceville Records
Black metal, prog metal, avant garde metal, a little industrial.   Some long long songs, to me, this is sounding like a Frank Zappa of post-metal.  Some pianos, saxophones, here and there

King Hitter
King Hitter
Restricted Release/Plastic Head
Featuring a former vocalist from CoC (Karl Agnell sang on “Blind”) this is some driving hard rockin’ stuff, catchy songs, vox are out in front and reminds me a bit of Volbeat a little.

Bio-Cancer
Tormenting the Innocent
Candlelight
Extreme vox in otherwise, standard fast thrashy metal and it works great!

Von Hertzen Brothers
New Day Rising
Spinefarm
A little bit similar to the King Hitter above, a good driving hard rock thing with the vox mixed way out front… this one probably isn’t as heavy, just a bit more on the hard rock side of things than metal.

Byzantine
To Release is To Resolve
self-released
Proggy, melodic, catchy… not quite as heavy as their earlier stuff, but they do get going in parts and really have it going on in this proggy technical metal thing.

Killswitch Engage
“Loyalty” (Catch The Throne: The Mixtape)
Roadrunner
Your typical KsE track, heavy in parts, clean vox, growly vox, catchy heavy stuff.  (Just a single)

KAFIRUN
Glorification Of Holy Death
Self Released
Classic cold, evil black metal, fast drumming, decent production, more of a chanting growling vocal style.

BEAUTALITY
Einfallen: A Tale ov Torment & Triumph
Nordavind Records
Doomy post-metal… it’s just like atmospheric rock type stuff getting into the drony black metal stuff.

I Am The Witness
Survival of the Fittest
Independent
Techy djent-ish Meshuggah-like metal with some post metal clean vox and other djenty catchy brutal core stuff too.

Massenhinrichtung
Zakon zbroi
Darker Than Black Records
Metal from Belarus!   It’s blackened folk/pagan metal.  Good production, the pagan/folk part mostly just comes from a string section prevalent through a lot of the stuff…

Bureviy
Concealed Beyond the Space
Darker Than Black Records
Ukrainian black metal.  A bit proggy, melodic, but still your cold drony black metal guitar sound. Screamy vox with some chanting/folky vocals too.

Gloson
Yearwalker
Art of Propaganda / Catatonic State
Doomy Post-metal

Karyn Crisis’ Gospel Of The Witches
Salem’s Wounds
Century Media
A bit doomy and melodic, almost a little Opeth like in style with Karyn’s screamy growly vox.

ILIUM
My Misanthropia
Nightmare Records
Proggy power metal. Heavier stuff, not quite as rediculous as Dragonforce on the speed, but it’s pretty heavy and fast stuff, catchy and thrashy.

Theories
Regression
Metal Blade Records
Heavy deathy thrash, quick short songs with no fucking around.

The Gentle Storm
The Diary
Inside Out
Fe-metal… interesting release, 2 album set, same songs on both, but one is “gentle” more laid back and just plain non-real metal stuff going on. and “storm” is the same song with more of a metal edge to it.

PERDITION TEMPLE
The Tempter’s Victorious (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
I’d have to say this is blackened death metal with more on the death metal side.  Good meat and potatoes stuff.

GOUGE
Beyond Death (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
Thrashy punky blackened death metal.  yeah… really.

ABOMINATOR
Evil Proclaimed (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
Brutal thrash, probably more on the black/death metal side of things, but evil sounding… so yeah, a good mix, mostly black metal though.

BARREN EARTH
On Lonely Towers
Century Media
Well, if you miss the “old” Opeth, I think this band will have the fix for you. Melodic proggy death metal.

Pantommind
Searching for Eternity
Spectastral Records
I was just going to write how this was pretty cool prog metal, a good edge, heavy, then a voiceover comes on my mp3’s (you’re listening to Pantommind searching for eternity).  Yeah, no. What is this, 2003? Sorry guys.

Inculter
Persisting Devolution
Edged Circle Productions
So a while back, when I first got this album, I give it to Mike… then later on, he tells me he likes this… (I don’t listen to the new stuff usually til the week of adding it to rotation, Mike previews right away)… this is one he liked a lot, and I see why.  Fast heavy blackened thrash with no fucking around.  So yeah, a bit of a Slayer vibe, but probably a bit heavier and a bit more raw.  Cool stuff.

CHOKING ON ILLUSIONS
Rest/less
Bastardized Recordings
Some basic hardcore, metalcore type stuff.

FORTID
9
Schwarzdorn Production
How about another band in the old school of Opeth?  Classic heavy black metal but also dynamically going into some melodic stuff too… Overall though, this is some quality melodic black-ish death metal.

Mar 142015
 

Pallbearer
“Fear and Fury” (Decibel Tour Flexi)
Profound Lore
sludgy doomy stuff with a bit of melody. Just one song, so might be good for some chill time on the Mosh Pit.

Ranger
Where Evil Dwells
Spinefarm
Old school thrash with high screamy (with some edge) vocals, great catchy metal riffage and an overall joy to listen to!

The Sanity Days
Evil Beyond Belief
Candlelight
Thrashy stuff, a bit similar to Metal Church, great catchy guitar work and maybe a little big proggy too.

Segression
Painted In Blood
Murder Machine
It’s sort of a melodic death, thrashy and crunchy but with some melodic stuff going on too.  Vocals go clean and not-clean and guitar work is great too.

THE ANSWER
Raise A Little Hell
Napalm Records
Melodic throwback hard rock type stuff. A little on the AC/DC side of things, but then a bit more on the catchy melodic “prog rock” sound

MOONSPELL
Extinct
Napalm Records
Ever since these guys decided to be “metal” again, they’ve been on a roll and this keeps it going.  A nod to the heavier side of things, but more on the gothy melodic metal side. Great stuff.

KATAVASIA (from Greece)
Sacrilegious Testament
FLOGA Records
Black metal, with a throwback melodic feel, but I’m also getting a little bit of a Moonspell vibe going on tool.  Heavy and brutal yet still a bit melodic and catchy too.

Lago
Tyranny LP
Blood Harvest
Blackened Death metal…great brutal stuff, some cold, melodic black metal guitars, cookie monster vocals alternating with some black metal screams… blast beats, it’s good stuff.

Rellik
Spiraling Infinite Chaos
Horror Pain Gore Death
A bit like the Lago above, some death metal, but with some good black metal tendencies.  This one is a bit more death metal and basic, but still pretty good.

Sorcerer
In the Shadow of the Inverted Cross
Metal Blade Records
A bit of a darker feel of traditional metal.  A bit like Dio musically and similar style vocally too. A bit more down tempo from something thrashy, but still all metal.

HADAL
The Obscure I
Self-Released
Doomy melodic death metal. Some clean vox with a few growls.  Music is mostly melodic (opeth damnation type stuff), it gets a bit more distorty when the growls kick in, but never really gets into full on death metal type stuff.

Damian Murdoch Trio
Jump Rope With Electric Wires
Prosthetic Records
Guitar virtuoso stuff going on here, great stuff. (just a single so far – boooo)

Mar 092015
 

Uli Jon Roth
Scorpions Revisted
UDR
Melodic metal, live songs and other studio “re-imaginings” (re-recordings) of old scorpions songs.  Sounds great, new production, different vocals… breathes great new life into these old classics.

Europe
War of Kings
UDR / JVC Victor
Sounds like some good hard rock, a little bit along the lines of some Dio type stuff

Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz
Spinefarm
Catchy driving hard rock with a fun attitude.  Not quite as over the top as Steel Panther, but seems simliar musically, but with a bit of a metal edge… So it’s an 80’s/90’s metal mixed with modern sound with a little bit of Finnish fun!

Secret Of Boris
My Ghost
Cabo Records
Catchy hard rock stuff. Almost a little pop metal-like, but more just good ol rock with no gimmicks, whiney emo vox, or anything like that.  Just cool hard rock.

Enslaved
In Times
Nuclear Blast USA
Melodic black metal, they’ve been around for quite some time… This album has some more dynamics… kind of like the pre-non-growly Opeth… some heavy growly stuff, some cool melodic clean vox stuff, all in the same track.  good stuff.

Melechesh
Enki
Nuclear Blast Records
Wow… these guys just keep churning out brutal, yet catchy blackened death metal. They still have that middle eastern influence, yet still all on metal. They are firing on all cylinders and this might be one of the tops of the year.

BERRI TXARRAK
Denbora Da Poligrafo Bakarra EP
Planetary Digital
There seems to be some attitude here, and it gets a little bit heavy, but really it’s more like some alternative rock that maybe fringes into metal territory for a minute in this 2 song EP.  eh.

EVIL INVADERS
Pulses Of Pleasure
Napalm Records
Raw old school thrash, heavy, catchy and great screamy over the top vocals.

Cancer Bats
Searching for Zero
Metal Blade Records
Punky metal, quick songs, attitude, good mix of hardcore, metal and punk (and I’m not a fan of punk)… so this all works pretty well.

GOUGE
Beyond Death (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
Grindy, raw death metal.

DEVAST
Into Decimated Reality
Gore House Productions
Fast, brutal crazy death metal. This is some of the fastest stuff I’ve heard in a while, drumming is crazy, vox are just cookie monster brutal and it’s all just a wall of metal sound.

Lonely Robot
Please Come Home
InsideOut
Prog rock progressing a little into some prog metal in parts… more or less like a Porcupine Tree which has its heavy moments but generally stays in the rock realm.

THE HAUNTING PRESENCE
The Haunting Presence 12″ MLP
Hells Headbangers
Black metal, death metal, METAL METAL!  Fast, blast beats, screaming, crazy guitars, this is living up to its name too.

Nocturnus
The Science of Horror
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Vinyl Reissue of their 1988 album.  It’s my first time hearing it, and it’s pretty cool stuff, a bit like some old Morbid Angel, a bit thrashy, but darker… I could only imagine that in 1988 (when I was in high school and full on into Led Zeppelin) how brutal this would have been then.

SATYRASIS
…Of The Dead
Seventh Door Records
Thrashy metal, proggy and techical with a pinch of folky stuff here and there.  It’s mostly progressive death throughout.  Good stuff.

IRON KOBRA
Might & Magic
Dying Victims Productions
Traditional metal.  A bit thrashy, dual guitar attack, so there’s a bit of a Maiden/Priest feel.  Vox have a bit of an accent

CONCLAVE
Breaking Ground
Self-Released
Sludgey stoner metal.  3 tracks, vocals sound a bit like Oderus!  hah.  but the music is just some good stoner/doomy stuff.
