A gothy hard rock a bit like Volbeat
Modern melodic “solid rock” clean vox, almost over produced, melodic hard rock with a bit of a groove.
Season of Mist
Doomy stoner post metal
“Noble Savage” (single)
Great rockin’ new Track… classic Clutch!
Silence In The Snow
Catchy moderm melodic thrashy metal like they’ve always done. Great riffs as usual, a bit on the wall of sound production side of things again, but it’s their thing and works.
Century Media Records
So this is the sophomore release of the new and improved Queensryche. Funny how this band and Geoff Tate’s new stuff come out at almost the same time… makes for some easy comparison. This is what I expect and WANT to hear from the same band that came out with Rage for Order or Mindcrime/Empire, etc. Classic metal with prog tendencies… Todd LaTorre channels the old school Geoff Tate while going above and beyond and making his own mark. Great stuff.
I guess you could say this is old school black metal meets a pinch of metalcore, some melodic prog rock (in small parts) and some post metal too. This is just 5 long songs on this album.
Fit For An Autopsy
Absolute Hope, Absolute Hell
Brutal metalcore with some proggy tech stuff going on
Children Of Bodom
I Worship Chaos
Nuclear Blast USA
It’s been a couple years… I’ve always been a fan and I think this new album kicks things up a notch. A bit heavier and raw and still that classic Bodom sound.
Space 1992: Rise Of The Chaos Wizards
Epic symphonic metal. Get that invisible orange up to the sky and sing along with this epic metal of epic proggy power metal epicness. They call it “Heroic Fantasy Power Metal” YEAH!!! Can you tell I’m ready for something like this? it’s been a while since having an over the top, quality release like this.
Melodic metal with a little bit of proggy stuff going on. A bit of a commercial feel, maybe a pinch of King’s X sound too.
Nuclear Blast USA
Melodic metalcore. Some parts are straight up hardcore, others more melodic stuff… good mix of the two.
With The Dead
“I Am Your Virus” (single)
Noisy stoner metal
Kingdom Of The Blind
A heavy brutal blackened death metal thing. If you like Behemoth… you will like these guys.
The Hatred Inside
A bit thrash, a pinch of power metal, and some good ol classic metal.
Edged Circle Productions
A bit thrashy, mostly black metal… blackened thrash metal? Raw vox and raw sound.
Excaecatio Lux Veritatis
Sludgy post black metal.
Incantations of Demonic Lust for Corpses of the Fallen CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Raw thrashy death metal
Doomy black metal.
Church of the Five Precious Wounds
Brutal death metal, crazy riffs, fast fast fast playing and full on brutal cookie monster.
Dead Man’s Path
Brutal death metal as they’ve always been good at doing!
Heart Of A Coward
Sort of a death metal, a metalcore, tech deathcore type thing.
Into The Sinner Circle
Horror Pain Gore Death
Raw old school thrash with some punk thrown in.
11°22?.?4’N 142°35?.?5’E 7″ EP
2 song ep of sludgey death metal.
Violence and War (MLP)
classic old school thrash with a bit of a raw sound.
Black metal with a bit of a Slayer feel in some of the riffage. Some melodic stuff and mostly brutal.
Proggy modern metalcore/thrash. A cool melodic groovin’ undertone while keeping up a heavier metalcore thing up top.
Typhonian Wormholes: Indecipherable Anti-Structural Formulæ 12″ MLP
When I say raw production, I usually just mean it’s not polished production, but still good enough and listenable. This is raw on steroids. I think the normal human range of hearing is 20hz to 20,000 hz. I think this clocks in at 500-502 hz. C’mon. Someone running the EQ on the master recording of this needs a new line of work.
One Year Delay
I’d throw this in the catchy commercial hard rock bin. Good stuff, good production, but probably just missing the cut to be on the mosh pit these days.
This is some prog edged power metal from Brazil. Good guitar work, a good metal feel (not all power metal sing-a-longy)
Sonic Age Records / Cult Metal Classics
A classic metal thing with an old school doomy glam metal feel.
A Pleasant Shade of Gray (Expanded Edition)
Metal Blade Records
Great time to look back on this album. 3 Disc expanded edition… Disc 2 is live and 3 is some other unreleased/outtake/remix stuff. At the time I thought this album was ok, a bit too slow for me… but over time it did grow on me… and now a chance to look back on it after all this time… gets better with age!
Rage of the Gods
Self Released (Online Metal Promo)
Classic thrash with some over the top vox. Cool stuff.
Classic standard metal.. it’s okay, but nothing really new.
