New Stuff This Week… 5/30/16

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 5/30/16
May 282016
 

Revocation
Communion – radio single
Metal Blade Records
Just one song, but these guys don’t fuck around… technical, death, catchy and within 20 seconds you’re hooked with a classic thrash sound channelling into their tech death sound too. Great stuff, and can’t wait for more!

If These Trees Could Talk
The Bones of a Dying World
Metal Blade Records
Atmospheric laid back post-metal prog type stuff.  All instrumental… getting into some Katatonia sounding stuff musically…

Poison Headache
Poison Headache
Metal Blade Records
3 June 2016
A noisy grindy punked up metal thing.  Short songs with a wall of pissed off sound

Hellyeah
Unden!able
Eleven Seven
These guys fit right into the new wave of “bro-metal”?  Or that heavy, but accessible metal that FFDP, Slipknot, A7X, etc put out.  It’s decent, it’s heavy, catchy, etc.  This album compared to their last stuff seems decently heavy, maybe a bit over produced… but still pretty good.

Unlocking The Truth
“Monster” [Single]
Tunecore
“3 piece teen metal band…”  so, in my mind, I’m like… oh no, what’s this going to be like… *hits play*  hey, not too bad, kinda thrashy and catchy, just waiting for that singy whiney chorus with maybe some auto-tune… wait… what?  Just maybe a little clean part, but no whiney autotuney stuff?  Nice.  So yeah, it’s decent accessible solid rock/metal.

COUGH
Still They Pray (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
Sludgey doomy metal.  Long songs, some decent melody but with some huge meaty riffs too.

Unparalleled Height
Relentless
The Label Group
Hard rock stuff, a bit on the mainstream side, but with a proggy hardrock/metal side going on with it too.  On the surface one might dismiss this as some generic hard rock stuff, but really listening, there’s a lot of cool stuff going on.

Combichrist
This Is Where Death Begins
Out Of Line Music
Kind of a Rammstein-like hard rock.  A little industrial feel, some metal feel, catchy accessible hard rockin’ metal type stuff though.

Poverty’s No Crime
Spiral Of Fear
Metalville Records
Prog metal/rock with a good groove, nothing too heavy or technical, just a straight up rockin’ proggy thing which is pretty laid back in parts too.

Four By Fate
Relentless
The End Records
Great solid hard rockin’ stuff.  Maybe a southern hard rock feel and a good ol AOR style of rock.  Catchy and yeah, cowbell!

MORTILLERY
Shapeshifter
Napalm
Old school heavy thrash with some screamy abrasive female vox.  Great stuff!

PANYCHIDA
Haereticalia
Label:  Cursed Records
On the cover, this is called Pagan metal, but in reality, it’s melodic death metal… and good stuff too.  Yes it has a little bit of that pagan/viking feel to it.

ADVERMIX
Pandeathmic
Label:  Born of Chaos Records
Cool melodic thrash… classic thrash with some brutal stuff going on but great catchy riffs and guitar solos

RIKET
Avarter
Scarecrow Recordings
Death metal with some brutal stuff and melodic stuff too… cool 4 song EP!

Wóddréa Mylenstede
Créda Beaducwealm
Altare Productions / Legion Blotan
Drony something with baaaad production.

Candelabrum
Necrotelepathy
Altare Productions
Two very long songs of drony kinda black metal type stuff?   Again, production is meh… LOTS of treble and midrange really makes it hard to hear any detail.  meh.

THE DROWNING
SENESCENT SIGNS
LABEL: CASKET MUSIC
Death metal with a melodic proggy thing, kinda like Opeth… where you get a pinch of black metal, some proggy stuff and full on death metal type stuff too.

Sleep of Monsters
II: Poison Garden
Svart Records
Gothy hard rock with male and female vox… a little bit of a 70’s metal vibe going on too.

Zombie Ritual / Termination Force
Zombie Termination Split CD
Horror Pain Gore Death
Zombe Ritual is some great catchy brutal death metal.  Termination Force is a thrash infused death metal… production not quite as good as the ZOmbie Ritual.  Overall it’s nice, a full 9 track split album.  (Not afan of the “split EP” where it’s like 1 or two songs from each band. )

Falls of Rauros
The Light That Dwells In Rotten Wood
Nordvis Produktion
Doomy melodic black metal

Falls of Rauros
Hail Wind And Hewn Oak
Nordvis Produktion
Doomy melodic black metal

Sleep of Monsters
II: Poison Garden
Svart Records
A little bit of a gothy hard rock thing… male and female vox, not quite metal, but a cool melodic rock thing.  (a nice break from all the black metal above so far!)

WEIRD LIGHT
Doomicvs Vobiscvm (CD, LP)
Shadow Kingdom
Classic doom metal.  Long songs, melodic stuff a little bit of a stoner metal feel too.

Invehertex
Hacia el Vórtice
Signal Rex / Atavism Records
a couple of 20+ minute tracks on this one!   Lots of evil creepy horror type black metal going on here.

ATTALLA
Attalla (CD, TAPE)
Shadow Kingdom
Big meaty stoner metal a good groove, a little bit of a doomy feel too.

Enligthen
Illvmantithesis
Signal Rex
2 Tracks of cold old school black metal.  I think the guitarist mastered these tracks… that’s about all you can hear.

LUCIFER’S HAMMER (Chile)
Beyond the Omens (CD, LP)
Shadow Kingdom
This is what you might call “Traditional metal”  Just a good hard rockin’ groove, metal riffs, clean vox… decent stuff… maybe a lil thrashy in parts.

TOMBSTALKER
Black Crusades (CD, LP)
Shadow Kingdom
Good brutal death metal.

SACRED FEW
Beyond the Iron Walls (CD, 2LP)
Shadow Kingdom
I guess this is a reissue of their 1985 album. Female fronted traditional metal, maybe a bit of a classic metal with a little stoner doom feel.

Ygfan
Köd
A Sad Sadness Song
A sort of atmospheric post-metal prog rock doom type thing.

CARDINALS FOLLY
Holocaust of Ecstasy & Freedom (CD, LP)
Shadow Kingdom
Stoner doomy throwback.

DEFIATORY
Extinct
Black Lion Productions
I have to say I’ve been impressed with just about all the stuff on this “Black Lion” label.  This is some heavier classic thrash… getting into a little deathy thrash.  Longer songs (8ish minutes) and they get a bit technical too.  Good stuff!

Band: Ygodeh
Album: Clinic Of Maleficent
Self Released
The second release this week from a band that starts with “Yg”  yeahhh.  Well this one is some tech/prog death metal.  Decent stuff.

TRAUTONIST
Trautonist
Label:  Wolves & Vibrancy Records
Kind of black metal, a bit of that post-metal doom stuff too.

Band: Revenience
Album: Daedalum
Label: Sliptrick records
Female fronted “femetal?”  Kind of power metal/goth type stuff.  Growly male vox, clean female vox with gothy metal music.

Band name: SURTUR
Title: DESCENDANT OF TIME
Label: WITCHES BREW
Metal from Bangladesh, heavy brutal thrash / death metal.  Great riffs and catchy stuff all while being brutal too.

Charun
Stige
Cave Canem/As Above So Below Records
Ambient atmospheric doomy type stuff.

NOTHING
Tired Of Tomorrow (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
Kind of a laid back rock type thing.  One of the few Relapse things that’s just not for the Mosh Pit.

Atomikylä
Keräily
Svart Records
Really not sure what to call this… Psychedelic post metal?  Getting a bit black metal in parts, some psychedelic prog in others… just a bit out there.

New Stuff This Week… 5/23/16

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 5/23/16
May 232016
 

The Amity Affliction
“I Bring The Weather With Me” [Single]
Roadrunner
This is the band that like, well, it’s heavy then they have that singy stuff.  Just not for the Mosh Pit.

Gojira
“Silvera” [Single]
Roadrunner
2nd single and yup… still good.  Good melodic hooks, still heavy riffage and while it’s not BRUTAL HEAVY there’s just this heavy feel (kinda like all their stuff)

SUNS OF THYME
Cascades
Napalm Records
Kind of a melodic stoner rock.  Laid back, chilled out jams.

GRUESOME
Dimensions Of Horror (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
20 May 2016
This super group of sorts…featuring current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, and Derketa… has lots of great raw brutal death metal stuff going on.

DEATH
Scream Bloody Gore (Reissue – 3CD Promo)
Relapse Records
Always a good excuse to unearth a classic.  Reissues!  This one was kinda crappy sounding to begin with, seems kinda cleaned up and 2 discs of crappy sounding rarities for the true fan.

Assassin
Combat Cathedral
SPV
Heavy sped up thrashy stuff catchy, kinda brutal, good stuff.

VEKTOR –
TERMINAL REDUX
Earache
Kind of a melodic death/heavy thrash.  Good technical stuff going on and catchy as all hell too

Pierce The Veil
Misadventures
Fearless
Heavy and catchy, then you get to that happy singy modern metalcore type stuff… musically it’s fairly technical, has almost a bit of a Dragonforce thing going on… but those happy emo vox… meh.

Gutter Instinct
Age Of The Fanatics
Prosthetic Records
A little bit of a grindy death metal.  Good wall of brutal death metal.  Big meaty grooves and

Katatonia
The Fall Of Hearts
Peaceville Records
Kind of hard to pigeonhole a genre for this band to fit in… they kind of have their own… a melodic proggy doom with blackened metal undertones.  Well, this album is just like that… Katatonia-core.  Something to chill out to, yet still have some more rocking passages… with lots going on both ways, in the slower parts and the faster parts.  Good stuff.

Architects UK
All Our Gods Have Abandonded Us
Epitaph Records
A djenty metalcore thing inching into a little big of progland.

The Order Of Israfel
Red Robes
Napalm Records
A doomy throwback to some maybe Sabbath and more creepy stuff.  Big meaty sound with yeah, the throwback, but yet with modern stoner metal crunch too.

…And We All die
…And We All Die
AWAD Records
Four hard rock songs with a little bit of a punky edge, and then a bunch of remixes and reworkings of the same tracks.  Maybe more of an alt-rock type thing going on here too.

Six Feet Under
Graveyard Classics IV: The Number of the Priest
Metal Blade Records
So yeah, this band… did 3 others of these covers albums… kinda got a new lineup, the new stuff was great, so why do more covers albums when you’ve had a second wind?  Why not I guess.  I’m a sucker for covers, but yeah… this one is half Judas Priest and Iron Maiden done in the deathy groove style that is Six Feet Under.  Good stuff for fans of all?  you decide.

SEKTEMTUM
Panacea
Osmose Productions
I guess this is a grooving black/death metal.  Some fast intense black metal type stuff with a grooving death metal vibe too along with maybe a pinch of a melodic punky grind thing too all while having some catchy moments.  Not too shabby.

ELDERBLOOD
Messiah
Osmose Productions
A cool epic-like black metal thing reminding me of some earlier Dimmu Borgir.  A good thick production with some catchy and melodic riffs all while keeping it brutal.

WeaksaW
The Wretched Of The Earth
Lifeforce
Kind of a metalcore, melodic death metal type thing… maybe a little djent-like.  Chugga chugga Meshuggah sound, but with a bit more melodic stuff to break up the chugga chuggas.  Cool stuff with a groove.

OVERTURES
Artifacts
Label:  SLEASZY RIDER RECORDS
Italian melodic metal.  You know, Italian metal just has its own sound, kinda like German metal.  German metal has that gritty heaviness… Italian metal has that warm and fuzzy over the top Fabio-like vox with some decent power metal-ish music. So this sounds like that.  It’s not bad, it’s just its own genre, right?

STORTREGN
Singularity
Label:  Non Serviam Records
Blackened melodic death.  Catchy, heavy, brutal in parts, melodic… overall pretty cool stuff.

Blasted To Static
Blasted to Static
Metalopolis
Big screamy vocals, great thrashy classic metal riffs… Kind of a supergroup of some members from classic bands like Racer X, Death Dealer and Steelheart.  Classic metal sound with an edge. Meedly guitars and a big voice.

Seventh Xul
Qliphothic Rites of Death 7″ EP
Iron Bonehead
Brutal death metal… production is a bit-raw.  A little evil black metal feel, and all brutal for just these 2 tracks.

BOYFRNDZ
Impulse
Brutal Panda Records
Kind of a stoner rock doom thing with a bit of a throwback vibe

ISOLERT
No Hope, No Light…Only Death
Ogmios Underground
CLassic black metal.  good and brutal, cold yet melodic and evil.

Various Artists:
Metal Up Your Axe, Vol. 2
Online Metal Promo
Lots of great different bands and sounds…  don’t listen to me, go get it yourself for free:

41 songs from ‘Metal Up Your Axe Volume 2’ album available for free download

VOLYMIAN
Maze of Madness
Maple Metal Records (MMR026)
Standard metal with some keyboardy stuff, and maybe a little bit power metal, but mostly just traditional metal, leaning more towards some hard rock AOR type stuff.

Uada
Devoid Of Light
Eisenwald
This is some good melodic black metal.

AUSTARAS
PRISONER OF SUNLIGHT
Label: self-released
Atmospheric Progressive Metal with some hints of melodic black metal

AMIENSUS
Ascension
Label: independent / Distribution: Nordavind Records
Melodic proggy black metal a little bit of a doomy feel too.

ASCENDOR
Drive My Demons Away
Label: independent / Distribution: Nordavind Records
Good classic metal with a little bit of a thrashy thing going on.  vocals are a bit abrasive, but maybe not quite growly.

THRASHIT
KAISER OF EVIL
WITCHES BREW
You can probably guess by the name what this will sound like… and yeah, it’s good catchy classic thrash from Malaysia!

New Stuff This Week… 5/16/16

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 5/16/16
May 142016
 

Helhorse
Helhorse
Spinefarm
A melodic doomy hard rock thing.  Good groove, a bit stoner/doom-ish or just straight up hard rock, maybe a hint of Monster Magnet/Clutch too.

Kvelertak
Nattesferd
Roadrunner
Melodic black metal with a groove and well, kind of their own sound too. Take Ghost, some other black metal and some stoner stuff and mix it up.  Great follow up.

Jim Breuer and ethe Loud & Rowdy
Songs from the Garage
Metal Blade Records
What?  A comedian doing a metal album?  Yeah!  It’s not where it’s just a song or two and then a bunch of stand up.  This is actually some good music going on and catchy stuff and funny too.

Conniption
Relentless Tides
Self Released
Catchy hard rockin’ traditional type metal stuff from Milwaukee.    New album has some great guitar work, a good catchy groove and great melodic hooks.

WEEKEND NACHOS
Apology (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
A raw punked up hardcore thing.

Avatar
Feathers & Flesh
eOne Entertainment
Catch and modern… they have an “image” and it tends to bleed through the music a bit too.  Catchy good stuff.  Kind of a Marilyn Manson meets slipknot/Gwar.  decent stuff.

TERRORWAY
The Second
Bakerteam Records
A proggy djent Meshuggah sounding thing with some slower elements as well as some more groove and headbangy parts.

Hatebreed
The Concrete Confessional
Nuclear Blast Entertainment
You all know who Hatebreed is, you know what they sound like… and they’re back with a new album of stuff that sounds like Hatebreen and it’s great!

Death Angel
The Evil Divide
Nuclear Blast USA
The last few comeback albums from Death Angel featured some great music and some songs that tended to be longer… this one has more short, to the point tracks.  Great catchy heavy metal from one of the originals.

Lacuna Coil
Delirium
Century Media Records
This band has kind of crossed over out of metal and into solid rock… but this one seems to have maybe crossed back a bit.  This one is heavier and more aggresive than some past efforts… Still catchy and the back and forth of male/female vox still works for these guys.

WITHERED
Husk (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
Just a single so far, but this is unrelenting brutal black metal.  No fucking around, just great brutal stuff.

Toska
Toska
Eihwaz Recordings
Fast and intense black/death metal.  A bit disjointed and frenetic… vocals are kinda lost in the mix, but it’s going from this fast brutal wall of sound to some interludes that are more ambient/melodic.  Kinda evil sounding too of course.

NIHILISTINEN BARBAARISUUS
MADNESS INCARNATE
Symbol of Domination Productions & Black Lion Productions
Classic melodic black metal, pretty decent, maybe a lil down tempo and doomy.

True Black Dawn
Come The Colorless Dawn
W.T.C.Productions
Blackened death metal.  Good brutal cool evil sound.

Band name: BLACK ROYAL
THE SUMMONING Pt. 2
Label: ARMLESS STRANGER
A heavy deathy stoner metal.  A bit doomy, growly, big big fat meaty riffs.

Winterhorde
Maestro
ViciSolum Productions
Melodic black/prog metal with maybe a little bit of a epic or folk feel.  Heavy brutal in parts, typical prog metal in parts…it’s got everything and it’s good.

Vainaja
Verenvalaja
Svart Records
A little bit of a sludgey death metal a little doomy in parts, but a good groove too.

Enthean
Priests of Annihilation
Self-Release
Brutal blackened death metal but with some melodic breaks… overall, technical fast and brutal.  Great stuff.

Atala
Shaman’s Path of the Serpent
Self-Release
A little bit stoner metal, some doom and some long songs.  Decent catchiness going on, but a bit too drawn out.

Teloch
Thus Darkness Spake
Saturnal
A classic-ish sounding black metal. A bit of a grove, some melodic stuff

SCAR OF THE SUN
In Flood
Scarlet Records
Kind of a prog metal melodic death crossover type thing.  There’s a cool heavy element, along with a more melodic proggy thing too.

Brutus
Wandering Blind
Svart Records
Cool catchy stoner metal… vox sound like Ozzy… good grooves and a little bit of a throwback to 70’s hard rock.

NIGHTMEN
Fifteen minutes of pain
Label:  Lövely
Old school female fronted garage rock.

GEBRECHLICHKEIT
Aphorismen der Angst
Label:  Human to Dust
Classic black metal. Good stuff, brutal, heavy, maybe a little on the death metal side too.

TED POLEY
Beyond the Fade
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Singer from Danger Danger, and this is melodic hard rockin’ stuff… would fit into that classic rock/AOR type category.  Probably not going to get airplay, but it’s good if you like this stuff.

SUNSTORM
Edge of Tomorrow
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
this is some good early 90’s sounding AOR hard rockin’ type stuff.

Red Tide Rising
Voices
6 May 2016
Kind of a melodic modern solid rock type metal.  Featuring a former guys from Drowning Pool and Ill Nino. So, something along those lines.  Decent stuff

Behind The Shadows
Raising Hell
Visionaire Records
A bit traditional metal, a bit modern metal, great guitar work, catchy songs, clean vox.

MESARTHIM
Pillars
Label:  Avantgarde Music
Atmospheric black metal.  Not quite as doomy and spacy as a lot of stuff, just has a bit of a goth feel.

Mother Feather
Mother Feather
Metal Blade Records
A Metal blade band that’ll be out on Warped Tour this year.  Female fronted melodic stuff… probably not quite even metal or metal show worthy.  Alt-rock.

SYLVAINE
Wistful
Season of Mist
Trippy atmospheric black metal.

GORGUTS
Pleiades’ Dust
Season of Mist
One track, 32 minutes.  Technical brutal proggy death metal.  A few lighter breaks here and there, a bit doomy in those slower parts, cool guitar solos too.

HYPERSONIC
Existentia
Label:  Revalve Records
Epic female fronted symphonic power metal….there’s a good metal edge here and it does have that “epic” feel too.  Pretty good stuff.

DARK HAUNTERS
To Persevere is Diabolical
Label:  Revalve Records
Melodic proggy death metal… proggy mostly leaning towards the symphonic keyboardy stuff going on… makes it a bit creepy and adds to the evil feeling.

NETHERLANDS
L.M.M. (Single)
Prosthetic Records
Big sludgey stoner sound for this one song single.

MHONOS
Miserere Nostri
Label:  ZANJEER ZANI Productions
