eOne Music / Rocktagon Worldwide Music
American new metal. Not quite old “nu-metal” but it’s kind of what it reminds me of. Maybe a bit of a Marilyn Manson shock rock/metal sound… catchy commercial metal-ish sound.
A band that has been around for a while. This album stays true to their sound, maybe kicking it into melodic death a tiny bit. Metalcore, a tiny feel of nu-metal all while staying tried and true to Christian metal. Catchy too!
Melodic death metal with a viking metal feel… so yeah, sounds like Amon Amarth and that’s a good thing, right? Right. This might be a bit more dark and heavy though too. Great stuff.
Blinding and Bottomless Abyss Is Howling (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
An old school black metal feel, with some brutal vox and heaviness…. but overall, some old school Mayhem-ish black metal.
The Shadow Archetype
Metal Blade Records
Heavy melodic death from Sweden. They were around in the early 90’s. took a 12 year break and came back in 2005. This is the first album in 5 years and it’s good stuff man. A big freight train of death metal all while having a catchy melodic groove going on too. Vox are harsh the whole time too.
Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light
This is a bit doomy, a bit sludgey, a bit black metal, a bit grungy and noisy and a little post-metal too… and yeah, space rock and all this together fits a bit into prog, but noise-prog?
Do Not Deviate (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
Tech death metal. Good barking vox, lots of techy guitar and drum stuff going on. Looking forward to the rest of this album!
HEXAHEDRON – Tilling The Human Soil (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
Blackened death metal, a bit more on the melodic black metal side of things… but good stuff.
Within The Ruins
Djenty techy death/brutalcore metal Catchy and heavy… a bit thrashy too, if you don’t like the brutalcore djenty stuff, then this is probably not for you. I like it.
Kill The Precedent
Some Version Of The Truth
Minus Head Records
Kind of hardcore…a little darker and maybe some thrashy stuff going on too
Century Media Records
These guys seem to do no wrong with catchy modern classic thrash. Heavy, kind of technical, and just what nowaways, when someone says tell me a good new metal band…”Havoc” should be one of those answers.
Female fronted classic doomy metal. Maybe a bit sabbath-y. Grooves and catchy all around.
Kind of a punked up southern fried stoner metal
Melodic death metal that sounds a bit like Soilwork. Good harsh parts, catchy and kind of technical and clean vox work well too. Great stuff!
Third Scourge From Darkness CD/LP
Blackened doom. Black metal and doom, yeah. haha. A little creepy with that echoey/shouted screamed vox. Music has more of a classic stoner doom feel, but with black metal speed in parts.
Off The Grid
These guys dropped off the map for a while and they’re back! Classic power metal type stuff, maybe a bit more Dragonforce-ish, and they’re orginally from Omaha… now from Denver. Great to have these guys back and to have a band like this from the US!
A little sludgey something-core. I guess it’s a little hardcore/metalcore but with a sort of sludgey metal music base.
Slow sludgey post-metal. Shoegaze, whatever. I am not a fan of this type of music, so I can’t really say anything good.
What The Oak Left
Progressive Melodic death metal going on here. Harsh vox with more or less prog/power metal music. Pretty cool stuff! Usually you get one or the other, harsh vox or proggy power metal, but to get both… cool stuff. The vox are a little low in the mix though.
Banished From Time CD/LP/TAPE
Raw, old school low-fi black metal.
Band: Grave Plague
Album: The Infected Crypts
Label: Give Praise records / Redefining Darkness
Two songs of classic grindy death metal.
Kind of a raw old school death metal. This is a compilation of their early 90’s stuff. Kind of a hard rocking death metal type thing.
For a Black Tomorrow
Kind of a more gothy and doomy Tool type thing. A bit mroe on the grungy metal side, but vocally and prog-wise, it’s a little Tool like, but not quite as grooving.
Far from Light
Cruz Del Sur Music
Dual guitar attack reminiscent of Judas Priest, but the rest of it is kind of a doomy old school classic metal. There’s a little raw feeling in the production, maybe a bit of a throwback “Ghost” feeling too. But then there’s some Iron Maiden feelings too!
Behind The Sun
melodic death, big grooves, progressive death metal. catchy, brutal, melodic, laid back too. great stuff all around!
Catchy and grooving stoner metal type stuff, intricate guitar and instrumental work, a sludgey heavy edge to it, but not doomy and depressing. good stuff.
Classic doomy hard rock from Norway, all sung in assumingly Norwegian… probably not for the Mosh Pit, but it’s decent laid back chilled out prog-ish rock.
Album: Wald – Mensch
They call it “post black metal” So yeah, I can hear that, a bit doomy and noise-ish, but a melodic black/doom-ish metal thing happening too.
Crucify the Faith
Record label: Self released
Melodic Deathcore, a little bit of a “local band” feel. The Music is cool, the screamy and growly vox are good, but the clean vox seem a bit dirty. They aren’t emo or anything, it just seems like they should stick to the growls or screams.
Goat Revenge (EP)
Label: Witches Brew
A little bit of a classic death metal, but a bit of a black n roll thing going on too. Production isn’t 100% crisp, but it’s still good… this has a good gritty pissed off sound to it.
Noises In The Sky
The 3rd single to trickle out from this supergroup. This one is mostly instrumental, a little bit prog, but a laid back rock track.
