AT THE GATES
At War With Reality
Century Media
They’re Back!  And while this isn’t Slaughter of the Soul part 2, it is a great follow up. Probably what makes it not an OMG WOW album is that so many other bands had come along and have made great Melodic Death albums.  When they made their last album it was one of the first ever.  Still great stuff and glad to have them back!

Obituary
Inked In Blood
Relapse
One thing about Obituary, they’re consistent and have their sound.  this album is definitely Obituary!  To think I used to hate this band… now I’m a big fan.

DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT
Ziltoid 2
(Century Media)
Proggy catchy kinda poppy hard rockin’ metal like only Devin Townsend can do.   This is the double album follow up to Ziltoid.  Signature Hevy Devy wall of sound.  This will need a bit more time to digest, but fans of Dev will like this.

IRON MAIDEN
The Complete Albums Collection Sampler
(BMG)
A sampler of some of the tracks from the new vinyl reissues of classic Maiden albums.  While it’s not any new material, it’s always a good excuse to play some Maiden!

Astral Doors
Notes From The Shadows
Metalville Records
Power metal from Sweden, there’s a bit of a 90’s Dio feeling going on.  Catchy beats, some nice clean (sometimes over the top) power metal vocals.

No Mercy (Fet. Mike Muir From Suicidal Tendencies)
Widespread Bloodshed (Love Runs Red)
Suicidal Records
Basically a side project of Mike Clark from ST, this must be a re-issue of their one and only album from 1987.  It sounds like a more thrashy metal version of ST and yeah it’s pretty cool.

ESCAPETOR
FEAR
CRIME RECORDS
Some standard metal with thrashy and prog metal tendencies.  A little bit of a Nevermore feel, but not quite as technical.  There’s a bit of a catchy groove going on.

Unearth
Watchers Of The Rule
eOne Entertainment
It’s been a little while since their last album, and well, these guys are not fucking around with this release, brutal, catchy and 100% metal with yeah, a little bit of their metalcore roots, but really it’s more like some melodic death than anything.  This one really blew me away… great stuff.

Sanctuary
The Year The Sun Died
Century Media
First album in 24 years and it’s pretty good stuff.  Unmistakedly Sanctuary, or more or less Nevermore-Lite.

Anaal Nathrakh
Desideratum
Metal Blade Records
Their last few albums I liked to call “kitchen sink” metal, as it was heavy as hell and it sounded like they threw in everything but the kitchen sink.  This new one starts off a bit more melodic with the intro track but doesn’t take long to get into their blackened epic brutal melodic metal.  So yeah, it’s still kitchen sink metal!

Vesania
Deus Ex Machina
Metal Blade Records
Melodic raw-ish black metal. There’s a bit of an epic thing going on too.

ATRIARCH
An Unending Pathway
Relapse Records
Doomy ambient stuff, with the occasional skip to something a bit more melodic black metal sounding. So I guess they are “blackened doom metal” then, right?

ABYSMAL DAWN
Obsolescence
Relapse Records
We’ve always been fans of this band… they’re just always so dark and pissed off.  This album is brutal, dark and heavy and has some catchy stuff too.  Just a wall of brutal fucking metal in your face.

ORDER OF THE DEAD
A BLACK CURSE COMES E.P.
New Ocean Media
I guess I’d throw this in the technical death category.  Catchy riffs (a bit like Slayer), brutal drumming and harsh vocals… did I just describe most metal albums?  Sure… This isn’t breaking any ground, but it’s quality tech death.

2 Wolves
Shelter
Inverse
Proggy melodic metal, leaning towards power metal

If I Were You
The Sleepless
Manifest Records
Wall of sound post-hardcore.  With those singy choruses, you know where you can see kids with backpacks doing twostep moves in the “pit”  While yeah it’s heavy and cool in parts with brutal breakdowns, that melodic emo singy drum machine part comes on and it’s just a dealbreaker.

Nero Di Marte
Derivae
Prosthetic Records
Proggy metal with leanings towards melodic death metal.

Solefald
Norrønasongen. Kosmopolis Nord
Indie Recordings
They call these guys Avant garde/black metal.  I guess that means a bit gothy melodic or some “post” black metal.  I hear a bunch of noisy stuff that reminds me of the fucking around parts on the early Type O Negative albums.  meh.

Einherjer
Av Oss, For Oss
Indie Recordings
Release date: Monday, October 27th 2014

Oraculum (Chile)
Sorcery of the Damned
Invictus Productions
Heavy death/Black metal

TANTAL
Expectancy
Bakerteam Records
Starts off as some heavy catchy proggy metal, then fe-metal vocals come in, but wait, then we go to screamy guy vocals!  So it sounds like we have some Epica-like metal here without all the orchestral stuff. So thrashy proggy metal with clean female vox and screamy melodic death guy vox.  Cool stuff (from Russia!)

Latitude Egress
To Take Up the Cross
Art of Propaganda
Doomy post-metal with a little bit of a post-black metal thing going on. (yawn for me)

SELVA
Life Habitual
Argonauta Records
To take the little description from the download link….Post Black Metal – Screamo – Post Rock  and yeah, that’s about it.  But most “post” whatever seems to be pretty lame to me, this has some good black metal moments, but over all, this is pretty slow.

Eyes Of Mara
Eyes Of Mara
Imminence Records
Brutal metalcore/hardcore I guess.  Just overall catchy and heavy stuff, great production

All Hell
The Devil’s Work
Horror Pain Gore Death
Raw blackened death.  Production is raw, it’s almost a bit punked up thrashy metal. Songs are short and quick.

Hornwood Fell
Hornwood Fell
AVANTGARDE MUSIC
Fast heavy black metal.  Blast beats, cold sounding guitars, haunting vocals, melodic guitars too.

NUNSLAUGHTER / WITCHTRAP
Split 7″
Hells Headbangers
Nunslaughter is catchy super fast thrashy death metal stuff. Witchtrap is old school raw thrash.

The Howling Void
Runa
AVANTGARDE MUSIC
Post black metal doomy stuff, down tempo

SLIPKNOT
.05: The Gray Chapter
Roadrunner
Kind of hard to know what to expect with this one, were they going to be all pissed off and make one of their heaviest albums yet?  or would they be a bit emo about losing some band members or whatever.  Well, As they get older and more mature, I had a feeling it wouldn’t be full on brutal, but it is destinctively Slipknot, but to me with leanings to Stone Sour. (mainly because of more clean vox from Corey Taylor).

I.N.C.  (Indestructible Noise Command)
Black Hearse Serenade
Ferocious Records
Great catchy modern thrash

Noturnall
Noturnall
Metalville Records
Proggy metal from Brazil, vocals are a dead ringer for Russell Allen, music has a little bit of an old Pantera-like groove.

Old Thunder
Slings & Arrows
Self-Released
Kind of some doomy black metal with “meh” production.

NekKralai
Kliudžiau
Self-Released
Raw black metal with some ambient melodic stuff too.

NACHTBLUT
Chimonas
Napalm Records
This to me is kind of truly a blackened thrash.  It has a black metal feel, but really a half thrash feel too but with some bonus catchy melodic stuff too.

ALLEN / LANDE
The Great Divide
Frontiers Music srl
Two of the better metal/power metal/prog metal vocalists out there are back for their fourth album with Timo Tolkki doing just about all of the music aside from drums.  Pretty decent power metal album here and you know the vocals are going to be good… and yeah, they are.

Holy Dragons
Dragon Inferno
Pitch Black Records
Fast, German sounding thrashy power metal (but they’re from Kazakhstan!) Some cool proggy stuff going on too.

DIMENZION: PSYCHOSPHERE
COLLAPSE
CRIME RECORDS
Kind of a modern thrashy metal band.  A bit of a groove, maybe a pinch of something like a Devin Townsend thing, as it’s a bit of a wall of sound and just has a lot going on in your face.

Amulet
The First
Century Media
Catchy throwback stoner metal.

A Breach of Silence
The Darkest Road
Eclipse Records
Kind of “classic” metalcore. Growls, screams, some clean vox, breakdowns, melodic death sounds, some thrashy riffs too.

VARGSANG
In the Mist of Night
Obscure Abhorrence Productions
A pretty cool, raw, old school black metal with good melodies, decent production and a nice touch of evil!

Inferion
This Will Decay
Horror Pain Gore Death
Brutal sounding melodic black metal.

CEMETERY FILTH
Screams From The Catacombs EP
White Ship Records
old school black metal with some thrashy sounding guitars and a bit of an old Morbid Angel feel too, but with some “eh” production.

Oct 132014
 

AMARANTHE
Massive Addictive
Spinefarm
Female fronted metal, a bit of a modern metal feel, some heavier parts when alternating to harsh male vocals.  music has a bouncy electronic backing (a little like Marilyn Manson in parts)

WOLFBORNE
In The Beginning
ILS
Some standard metal, a little bit of a bluesy sound pretty catchy, mostly clean vocals

KMFDM
Our Tialunme Will Come
Metropolis
Electronic stuff with a little bit of some guitar work… probably more for Something Wonderful than the Mosh Pit.

Exodus
Blood In, Blood Out
Nuclear Blast USA
So, starting off a track with some almost hiphop sounding stuff then really just getting into some classic Exodus riffs and drumming.  and Steve Souza is Back! So yeah, if you liked Exodus before, with whatever singer they have, this is a great new release that I’m sure you’ll like.

Pitch Black Forecast
So Low
Ferocious Records
Heavy stuff with a little grit leaning into that wall of sound Strapping Young Lad style of metal.  Which is interesting, because, hey guess what, Gene Hoglan is the drummer, and it’s fronted by Mushroomhead frontman Jason Popson (J Mann).

Like Monroe
Things We Thing, But Never Speak
eOne Entertainment
Modern metal-mall core.  A good brutal extreme metal foundation, but then swerving into singy emo core chorus type stuff.

Starkill
Virus Of The Mind
Century Media Records
Catchy epic melodic death metal but with a pinch of power metal or dragonforce-like guitar stuff going on.

Riot Horse
This Is Who We Are
Metalville Records
I feel like I’m listening to what Led Zeppelin might sound like if they made an album today. Bluesy hard rock

GORMATHON
Following The Beast
Napalm Records
Melodic death along the lines of Amon Amarth, but with a bit more on the folk metal side.

Drone
Drone
Metalville Records
Just kind of some standard metal, it’s pretty catchy, some heavier screamy stuff, other sung parts, a little bit of stoner metal, some power metal, some standard “metal metal” a cool mix of all sorts of stuff.

Scar Symmetry
The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity)
Nuclear Blast Records
These guys have always had a bit more of an electronic or melodic tint to good melodic death metal.  Now, they still have that going on, the harsh parts seem a bit more standard death metal and the melodic stuff even seems a bit more clean, almost 90’s AOR or hard rock.. this even gives the back n forth more contrast, which actually has a bit of a retro feel, but something cool and not typical of what you hear from melodic death these days.  This is the first album in a trilogy of concepet albums.

Zelorage
So You’re A Mess
Inverse Records
Nu metal sounding stuff

Heroes Of Vallentor
The Warriors Path Part I
Inverse Records
Sounds like these guys want to be a viking Manowar.  Decent metal with a little bit of an Iron Maiden feel too.  Vocally it’s a bit more like

INNSMOUTH
THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH
CRIME RECORDS
Fairly standard death metal with a bit of a melodic laid back groove.

My Own Ghost
Love Kills
Inverse
Female fronted hard rock/metal.  Modern commercial metal music sound.

Necrowretch
Even Death May Die 7″
Century Media
Black metal with no fucking around. (just a single and a slayer cover tho)

MASTERCASTLE
Enfer [De La Bibliothèque Nationale]
Scarlet Records
Female fronted metal.  I’d say this is more or less standard power metal

Riwen
Riwen (3 songs)
Indie Recordings
Blackened grindy punked up thrash. Fairly catchy and a little bit raw.

Posthum
The Black Northern Ritual
Indie Recordings
Classic black metal sound, but more of an overall melodic black metal thing, great catchy riffs and old school mixed with some new school stuff.

MIDNIGHT SIN
Sex First
Bakerteam Records
90’s sounding hard rock.

ATRUM TEMPESTAS
Néant
Nordavind Records
A doomy down tempo black metal thing

THE LURKING CORPSES
Workin’ For the Devil (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
A heavy thrash, a bit raw on the production, but vocals are growly, but also sung and over the top screamy too. Seems to be a bit on the “fun” side too.

PIG DESTROYER
Mass & Volume (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
This is a 2 song EP recorded back in 2007.  Not quite as fast and grindy as they normally do.  These are a couple of sludgy doom tracks.

INTER ARMA
The Cavern (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
Well, this is one track, a 45 minute track and it’s a bit of a long dreary doomy sludgey thing that moves along…kind of slow… there are some moments of heavy stuff, but overall it’s a big long “post metal” thing.

Occultation
Silence in the Ancestral House
Invictus Productions
70’s throw back metal with a bit of a creepy King Diamond  meets sabbath vibe.

Hang The Bastard
Sex In The Seventh Circle
SOAR / Century Media
Cvan there be such a thing as Stoner black metal?  I’m not sure but this is about as close as you’ll get.  Big meaty stoner metal music with some shrieky black metal style vocals.

EDEN CIRCUS
Marula (Rock)
Lifeforce
Basic rock, maybe a bit of a proggy hard rock along the lines of Porcupine Tree.

OCTOBER 31
Bury the Hatchet (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
Nice to have something that’s just good old school Thrash, with no messing around or anything fancy.  Just

Nuclear Perversion
Desolation Rituals tape
Iron Bonehead
Raw blackened grindy death metal with an in-your-face wall of sound production.  P

THAW
Earth Ground
Witching Hour Productions
Doomy melodic black metal, downtempo stuff

CIRCLE OF INDIFFERENCE
SHADOWS OF LIGHT
RECORDS OF INDIFFERENCE
Thrashy metal, production makes it sound a bit “over produced”  Growly vocals, catchy riffs, cool solos.

HORTUS ANIMAE
Secular Music
Flicknife Records
Thrashy Prog metal, death in parts, thrashy in parts, catchy, brutal, and melodic too. cool stuff.

Dead Samaritan
The Devil Tunes
Self-Relased
Basically thrash musically, vocals are a bit brutal/scream growled so that gives it a heaver feeling.

RATED X
Radio Sampler
Frontiers Music
Hard rock super group type thing with Joe Lynn Turner, Carmine Appice, Tony Franklin and Karl Cochran.  Sounds like some cool basic hard rock, but really with the distinct sound of each member too.  Just 3 songs so far, but pretty cool.

ANCKORA
Extreme
Irond Records
Electronicized russian metal

Nuclearhammer
Serpentine Hermetic Lucifer LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Old school basic black metal, blast beats, a mooshy wall of guitars and drums.

JUPITERIAN
Archaic
Self-Relased
Doomy sludge

OFDRYKKJA
A Life Worth Losing
AVANTGARDE MUSIC
WTF.  Some ambient drony black metal sound with yoko-ono-like vocals on one track, people talking, blah.
