New Stuff This Week… 5/21/18

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 5/21/18
May 202018
 

Burn the Priest
Legion XX
Epic Records
We’ve heard a few of the singles out already, so we have an idea of how this one is gonna go… They’re staying true to the originals while adding a little bit of their own sound to it… which when you’re doing a similar genre is the right way to go… right?

Clutch
Gimme the Keys (single)
Weathermaker Music
First taste of the new Clutch, big monster grooves, killer riffs, not super fast and heavy and not too slow, just right there, catchy as catchy can be!

From Beyond
The Band From Beyond
Candlelight Records
Big sound, big doomy classic hard rock. Maybe a little bit of an Alice in Chains thing going on too.

Owl Company
Pieces (single)
Eclipse Records
This is some kind of groove metal that reminds me of Godsmack or something a bit lighter, probably perfect for commercial radio though.

Midnattsol
The Aftermath
Napalm Records
One of those euro fe-metal bands, but this one is most like Epica, as the music tends to be a bit heavier. This one is their first album in 7 years and the first with now two vocalists (Liv Christine is now a permanent member — the other singer, Carmen is her sister)

Graveyard
Peace
Nuclear Blast USA
Big meaty stoner metal, a bit like spiritual beggars but like, more full

Bleeding Through
Love Will Kill All
Sharptone Records
As with their previous stuff… it’s good heavy metalcore, a bit of technicality, and in this case, the melodic parts are decent too.

Nervosa
Downfall Of Mankind
Napalm Records
This is a cool extreme blackened death metal / melodic death metal thing. Catchy brutal grooves. All female!

Architects Of Chaoz
(R) Evolution
Metalville Records
Basic classic metal, maybe reminds me a litte bit of WASP. Big powerful voice, just normal cassic riffage

The Ocean
Rhyacian: Untimely Meditations (2017 Version)
Metal Blade Records
11 May 2018

Spock’s Beard
Noise Floor
InsideOut
More personnel changes… lost the drummer, but Nick D’Vriglio is back as a hired gun. This album doesn’t have too much epic old school prog on it… it has a lot of 80’s Kansas sound and then some old school Genesis as we dig deeper… I’ve always been a fan, so this is good for me!

Lordi
Sexorcism
AFM Records
Modern metal, fun, you know that band that was the Scandanavian “gwar”? Well, it’s more of a melodic classic metal with fun crazy lyrics. good stuff.

Thunderwar
Wolfpack
Lifeforce
Kind of thrashy groove metal, a Motorhead loud feeling, but more groove and more extreme, like a blackened thrashy Motorhead? LOL good stuff, as it floats into some Melodic death too

Djevelkult
Når Avgrunnen Åpnes
Saturnal
Good old extreme black metal, good melodies, harsh vox and cold cold cold!!

NIBIRU
Netrayoni (2018)
Argonauta Records
Lots of post metal doomy noise.

Melan Selas
Reon LP
Iron Bonehead
An old school raw thrashy black metal mix up. Some grooves, some melodies and good old raw black metal.

Stortregn
Emptiness Fills The Void
Non Serviam Records
WOw, this is one of those… oh, gee, wonder what crap this will be… well, after a play, it’s a nice surprise, kind of a melodic death mixing great classic death metal and a little black metal darkness with just straight up catchy melodic death. Great stuff!

Skogen
Skuggorna Kallar
Nordvis
A kind of dark, depressive doomy blackened death metal. More of a doomy black metal feel wiht the occastional death metal thing

Valgrind
Blackest Horizon
Everlasting Spew Records
This seemed like it’d just be death metal, but then kind of morphed into some technical melodic/blackend death metal, cool stuff.

Abhor (Italy)
Occulta religiO LP/CD/TAPE
Iron Bonehead
We have some raw blackened death metal. Production is a bit lo-fi.

SACROCURSE
Gnostic Holocaust (CD)
Hells Headbangers
We had this last October from Iron Bonehead… same thing I said then… “Brutal dark death metal with a bit of a black metal thing going on ”

Face Off
Massive
Transcending Records
Some laid back chilled out femaled fronted rock.

CARNIFEX (Finland)
Pathological Rites
Xtreem Music
The writeup with this release says:
“Finnish death metal band CARNIFEX – NOT the horrible, trendy US deathcore outfit – is going to see all their demo recordings from ’91 to ’93 officially reissued on CD through XTREEM MUSIC under the title of Pathological Rites.”
And it’s some good technical old school death metal. The production is a little rwaw, but not too bad.

Ritual Necromancy
Disinterred Horror
Dark Descent Records
Brutal and intense and dark death metal. Leaning a little into the black metal realm. We’ve got some long tracks that just follow a dark and evil path.

FILII NIGRANTIUM INFERNALIUM
Hostia
Osmose Productions
This has a thrashy brutal death and grindy black metal thing, yeah that’s right… all that and some classic metal on top of it to boot! This has it all in the same song even!

Monument
Hellhound
Rock Of Angels Records
Classic metal, a sort of Maiden/Priest-light. I’d say a lot more maiden feel.

Majesty of Silence
Zu Dunkel Für Das Licht
Rockshots Records/ Extreme Metal Music
Black metal with a modern symphonic/epic/atmospheric sound. It’s a Swiss black metal duo that makes this evil and dark sound. Good stuff.

Supreme Carnage
Morbid Ways to Die
Redefining Darkness Records (N. America) | Raw Skull Records (Europe)
With a band name like this, it’s just what you hope it would be. Grooving brutal death metal…. Great stuff.

Band: Gunjack
Album: Totally Insane
Label: Sliptrick Records
It’s been a little time now that we’ve been receiving stuff from Sliptrick records, and it’s become the norm for it to be good stuff! Good production, some variance of hard rock/metal that doesn’t suck. This is some more hard rock type stuff… This has a bit of a heavier Motorhead vibe.

Uada
Cult Of A Dying Sun
Eisenwald
Classic heavy black metal, melodic parts, cold guitars, shrieky vox… more of a full wall of sound production though (rather than some old school echo chamber type stuff)

RavenSkül
At the Gates of the Gods
Self Released
Sounds like something wasn’t mastered, just a very raw recording of something that could be promising classic metal. Vox seem to be more announced as voice over.

RavenSkül
In the Air Tonight (single)
Self Released
Same as above… and yes this is the Phil Collins song. vox are quite weird as a narration style. Meh.

Sinsid
Mission from Hell
Pitch Black
Great catchy classic metal. Not much more to say, it’s metal, it’s catchy, it’s not brutal, or cold, or epic, or anything fancy, just good solid metal. Clean vox, good riffs and stuff.

Valyria
Into The Dying of Time
Self-Release
This is some cool epic melodic death metal, a bit of a fast dragonforce thing but a bit blind guardian, and more brutal stuff too

Callidice
Anthem For Resistance
Inverse
Melodic death metal, with a bit of a proggy and Amorphis thing going on… Good stuff.

The Insane Slave
The Insane Slave
Raising Legends
Melodic hard rock, clean vox, a little bit of a stoner doomy feel

Band: Ancient Oak Consort
Album: Hate War Love
Label: Revalve records
Proggy hard rock, kind of an actual folk prog rock in parts, getting into some heavier metal stuff

Pink Cocoon
Alienation
Self-Release
Jammy stoner metal, big meaty riffs with a pretty “live” sound.

Knightmare
Walk Through The Fire
Self REleased (online Metal promo)
Classic metal, good stuff, decent grooves, not too heavy, not too slow, just good ol metal.

Pentarium
Zwischenwelt
Boersma
Solid melodic death, poking a bit into some black metal, a bit technical, a full symphonic keyboard sound too. Pretty cool stuff.

ALKALOID
Liquid Anatomy
Season of Mist
Progressive Death metal, brutal and meaty sound with huge grooves while amazingly being proggy and technical. While monster grooves are going on, you have some sick solos, just pretty cool stuff.

ROTTEN SOUND
Suffer to Abuse
Season of Mist
Quick short tracks on this EP, Brutal grindcore… not super fast and in your face, but holding back a little in some parts for some grooves to get through.

NOCTURNAL GRAVES
Titan
Season of Mist
I guess you could throw this into the blackened death/thrash metal pile. It’s got pretty even elements of all three, doing all three good justice. Keeping the Evil Black metal style with meaty brutal hooks on a good catchy thrashy pace.

New Stuff This Week… 5/14/18

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 5/14/18
May 132018
 

Artist: Babymetal
Album: “Distortion”
Label: Babymetal Records/Cooking Vinyl
A new single from these girls/guys… great music, heavy, brutal, modern with the “Baby” (now women) vox in the Japanese Kpop style… unmistakeably Baby Metal.S

Skinless
Savagery
Relapse
One of those bands that helped lay the original death metal groundwork is back with their first album in 3 years. It’s brutal, fast, technical and grooving too. Great stuff!

Nils Partik Johansson
Evil Deluxe
Metalville Records
This is the singer from Astral Doors doing a solo thing. He’s got a great power metal voice with some raspy edge. This album is a prog/power metal thing with the big voice happening.

At The Gates
To Drink From The Night Itself
Century Media Records
Just the three singles so far, the newest, “Dggers of black haze” is a bit more down tempo and melodic, but still heavy, dark and harsh

Candlemass
House Of Doom (EP)
Napalm Records
In the one single I have here, it’s big meaty doom but with melodic metal-ness… it is the HOUSE OF DOOM!!

Crimshaw
Monster
Independent
One track in, I was ready to say it was just a cool groove metal type thing, but as you go deeper, it’s a bit less heavy and more melodic and just a hard rock thing… good n catchy though!

Parkway Drive
Reverence
Epitaph Records
A bit metalcore, a bit more of a mainstream hard rock/metal feel, and actually some proggy metal feeling too

Knelt Rote
Alterity LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Big wall of sound brutal death metal… to the point of almost too much wall of sound… but, really just fast and brutal stuff.

Pseudogod
Sepulchral Chants DLP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Kind of a raw blackened death metal, dark and evil.

Sect Pig
Crooked Backs MLP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Pretty much one track of grindy atmospheric post metal with pig squeal sounding vox…

Flame Acausal
Contra Mundum in Aeternum CD
Blood Harvest
Raw blackened thrashy death metal. Four tracks of fast and furious

BornBroken
The Years of Harsh Truths And Little Lies… (2018)
Self-Release
Brutal, kind of blackened death/thrash, a little Sepultura stuff happening, otherwise, just great brutal and catchy death metal

Spiral Skies
Blues For A Dying Planet
AOP Records
A classic old school doom, almost like a doomy Jefferson Airplane, female vox, but with a cool atmospheric catchy rock thing with some sabbath thrown in.

Nihil Eyes
Black Path
Ultraje
Brutal catchy death metal, a little bit of a “blackened” edge going on too.

Aghasura
Revelations
Transcending Records
Brutal death metal with some black metal feels. Technical/frenetic musically… cool stuff

Band: Khasm
Album: Trinity
Label: Sliptrick records
Death metal with a thrashy thing going on, or is it a thrash metal with a death metal thing going on? Either way it’s heavy

Hirax
Born in the Streets 1983/1984
F.O.A.D. Records
Old school and raw demos from their first recordings and even before that as their original name LA Kaos. Very old/raw recordings.

Heroes Don’t Ask Why
Sound of a broken heart
Self Released
Kind of a modern standard “metal” thing, A little grooving, a little AOR, a little melodic modern hard rock type stuff.

Serene Dark (formerly Endemise)
Dualitatem (single)
Self-Release
Symphonic extreme black metal, screamy and growly vox, melodic and brutal

Massive Scar Era
Color Blind (single)
Self-Release
Female fronted melodic proggy hard rock, clean vox, then oooo some harsh vox too!

High Council
Held In Contempt
Via Nocturna
A sort of classic metal meets modern grooving hard rock. Melodic vox, a catchy basic metal base.

The Shiva Hypothesis
Ouroboros Stirs
Wormholedeath
Blackened Death Metal… great grooves, catchy brutal riffs. Some of this gets a bit more um, melodic and folkie

HEILUNG
Ofnir
Season of Mist
Ambient electronic type stuff with chanty type vox.

HEILUNG
LIFA
Season of Mist
The first live album of the same as above….

NORTHWOODS
Wasteland
Anubi Press
A little metalcore, a bit screamy… some just a little doomy in parts too… overall though, it’s some modern metalcore

In Vain
IV
Self Released
Released: Friday, September 29th 2017
This would be in a heavy thrash category to me…. There’s a bit of a euro heavy power metal influence in the sound, but just heavier!

Ostura
The Room
Universal Music MENA
Prog metal with a bit of an industrial/symphonic thing going on too. Virtuostic guitar work, great vox, self described as a “modern fusion of Film-score, industrial metal, and progressive metal.”

Release: Circenses
Tightrope Walk on the Ground
Record label: Inverse Records
Proggy death metal, meedly good guitar guitar work, barked out vox, a melodic/symphonic undertone, so, technical melodic death type stuff. Good stuff!

THY CATAFALQUE
Geometria
Season of Mist
An experimental/prog metal thing happening here, a bit chilled out, female vox, some growly vox, some straight up metal, some darker goth metal, usually all pretty proggy though. Very dynamic, lots of differnt metal stuff going on. Great stuff.

Artist: Burn the Priest
Single: “I Against I”
Label: Epic Records
bad brains cover, this one was a little tougher to pick out as “oh, listen, it’s Lamb of God doing a cover” Had its own feel and sound to me.

May 052018
 

Anthrax
Kings Among Scotland
Megaforce
Live album recorded from Scotland… Great sound, you can feel the live-ness with great production. Good setlist mix of old Joey stuff and new Joey stuff… still a shame that Joey doesn’t do more Bush era songs

Deafheaven
“Honeycomb” (single)
Anti-
An 11 minute single of blackened metalcore type stuff as they do well. This one, maybe a bit long, but halfway through it really lightens up to become more of acoustic atmospheric rock thing.

Trauma
As The World Dies
Rivet Records
Classic metal with a thrashy feel, big screamy metal voice

Luca Princiotta Band
Rough Blue
Metalville Records
A good solid classic guitar based hard rock metal thing. A few tracks have that guitar god instrumental thing going on. Oones with vox seem to have more of a bluesy rock vibe.

Amorphis
Tales From Lake Bodom
Nuclear Blast USA
Back to where they belong… they had a few albums in the middle there that were shaky, but these guys know what works for them and they got it going on again for this album! Can’t wait to see them live.

Long Claw
Disastrophe
Pavement Music
This has a doomy Sabbath/Clutch/Zakk Wylde thing going on. Vox sound just like Zakk. (not as many pinch harmonics). Good catchy hard rockin’ songs

Dead Season
PROPHECIES
Dissonances Music
A cool melodic death album, some good deep heavy grooves while mixing in lots of classic metal stuff, going brutal heavy and classic metal light

FLESH HOARDER
HOMICIDAL NECROPHILE
LABEL: COMATOSE MUSIC

Chaotic and atmospheric and just plain out there style black metal.

Band: Katari

Genre: Black Metal
Label: From Deepest Records
Good old school raw black metal. Some dark grooves, it’s not just all low-fi and cold. Just raw, dark and evil.

Ackeron
Polarity
Melancholia Records
A sort of metalcore thrash-ish type thing. It’s got proggy technical stuff going on, has that melody sound of a modern metalcore, but a little bit of a Dillinger Escaple Plan craziness (not quite as crazy)… decent stuff.

LOU QUINSE
Lo Sabbat
Sliptrick records
This is some pretty cool folk metal, it’s really just simply that, Folk Metal. It’s got all that bouncy accordion folkie flute stuff, but a great driving catchy metal thing going on. Great stuff.

Ruach Raah
Under the Insignia of Baphomet
War Arts Productions
A brutal black metal type thing. Dark, cold, evil and some good riffage/grooves/brutality

Demon Head
The Resistance
The Sign Records
Kind of an alternative/stoner rock. meh.

Album: Selbstwelt
Country: Ukraine
Genre: Pagan Folk Black Metal
Label: Purity Through Fire
Release date: April 30, 2018

Band: Autarcie
Album: Seqvania
Label: Purity Through Fire
This is some basic black metal, but not quite all fast and blast beats… a bit more doomy and dark with some black n roll grooves.

Gus G.
Fearless
AFM Records
Solid hard rockin’ classic metal. now that he’s released from the Ozzy band, he’s got free time to do “stuff” again!

Leviathan
Can’t be Seen by Looking: Blurring the Lines, Clouding the Truth
Stonefellowship Recordings
Not to be confused with a bunch of other bands with the same name, this is the prog metal version based in Colorado. They’ve got Mark Zonder playing drums, and have a good mix of classic prog metal type stuff with more of a solid hard rockin’ prog type thing

VERILUN
Through Fire… In The Sun
Sliptrick records
blackened melodic death metal, great mix of all three. A heavy thrashy brutal edge, then keeping it heavier with harsh black metal-ish vox and a good underlying overall melodic feel.

Immortal Sÿnn
Machine Men
Self Released
Thrashy, fun classic metal great catchy grooves and just good metal.
