New Stuff This Week… 2/15/16

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 2/15/16
Feb 132016
 

Killer Bee
“Joystick Warrior” [Single]
Self-Released
Just a hard rock thing.  Only a single, but It’s borderline not even being metal… so yeahhhh.

Lost Society
Braindead
Nuclear Blast
A kind of classic thrash… raw vox, heavy thrashy sound a bit of a hardcore thing going on too.

Devotion
Worlds And Crystals
The Label Group
To me, this is a bit of a “solid rock” thing.  It’s got a decent groove, isn’t quite metal, isn’t all emo, but isn’t just plain rock.  It has clean melodic vox, and sounds like it’d be on another station in town.

Droids Attack
Sci-Fi Or Die
Riff Reaper Records
Classic hard rockin’ stoner metal with a great groove and a good heavy edge too.  Bonus!?  They’re local!  Great stuff.

Greenleaf
Rise Above
Napalm Records
Throwback doomy stoner metal.  Throwback?  yeah, it’s a bit of a 70’s metal sound… a great groove, major riffage and good melodies too.

FALL OF HUMANITY
“FALL OF HUMANITY” (EP)
New Ocean Media
Metalcore… melodic, brutal and heavy in parts, with a groove and catchy stuff… but then you get some clean vox

Löbo
Alma
Signal Rex
Loonnggg dooomy black metal.

TEN THOUSAND MILES OF ARTERIES
Even Spilled Seed Crawls Toward The Womb
Annihilvs Power Electronix
Not sure what to call this aside from noise.  Sounds like someone leaned on the digital noisemaker machine while someone else was yelling shit in the microphone.

Helion Prime
Helion Prime
Self Released
Melodic female fronted metal.  Good catchy guitar work in this classic metal thing.  Clean female vox, but not growly nor opera-like either.  Just a good rockin’ album here.

Barbaric Horde
Gasmask Perpetrators
War Arts Productions
Death metal with a “local band” feel… kinda icky raw production.  eh.

Triumvir Foul
Triumvir Foul LP
Blood Harvest
Gritty grindy black metal but with a bit of doom in parts and brutal classic blackened death too.

Charm Designer
Everlasting
Inverse Records
Dooomy melodic death metal with a little bit of goth and symphonic metal stuff going on too. I guess with all that going on, they’d compare a little bit to Moonspell.

Amoth
Revenge
Inverse Records
Kind of a standard metal thing, but with some proggy power metal tendencies… getting into a little proggy thrash territory too.  cool stuff.

Among The Prey
Only For The Blinded Eyes
Inverse
Kind of a melodic death/thrash, a heavy Lamb of God sounding thing… but with a bit more groove and melodic almost proggy stuff too.

Various Artists
4 Doors to Death
Unspeakable Axe Records
Just 4 band with 3 songs each of raw black/death metal.

ONIRISM
Cosmic Dream
Self Released
Black metal with some proggy melodic stuff going on.

APATHY NOIR
Across Dark Waters
Artnoir Productions
A bit of a doom metal, some melodic black metal and avant-garde stuff too…. oh why not a pinch of folk metal and prog rock too.

Burial Dust
Oshubho Ahobaan(EP)
Self Released
Death metal with a black metal feel. I wouldn’t called it blackened death metal, as I think of that being a more polished Behemoth type thing.  This has some “ok” production.  it’s not completely shitty, but it’s not that great.  We’ll say it’s raw.

LAST FRONTIER
Theta Healing (Through the poison)
Label: Revalve Records
A sort of proggy power metal.  You know, I get so much stuff from PR companies and stuff… a lot of times, it’s just the same ol black metal stuff.  Its a bit refreshing to have something different than that!  Melodic metal with keyboards and decent clean vox that don’t get too out of hand screamy… reminds me a bit of real early Dream Theater.

INGLORIOUS
Until I Die – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
A new hard rock band with a classic hard rock/metal sound.  big riffs and a great groove with almost over the top vox.  cool stuff for the hard rock fan.

Band: Nest
Album: Nest
Label:  Tribunal of the Axe Records
Sludgey doom metal with semi-growly vox.  Decent riffy grooves, probably a bit too sludgey for me though.

ETHEREAL RIFFIAN
Youniversal Voice
Label:  Self-Released
So, this is described as “Psychedelic/Stoner/Progressive/Doom”  and it really truly is that to a T.  Cool grooves, punchy sound, heavy and cool.  Vocals are more on the doomy style though.

Band: Desert Dragon
Album: Before The Storm
Label: Sliptrick records
As the above one… this one is “Style: Progressive Rock/Hard Rock/ Melodic Metal”  And I hear that too… There’s a good almost early 90’s heavy AOR feel, but a modern prog hard rock thing going on too.  Good clean production, the vocals have a good clean mid-range sound but this guy can escalate and hit those high notes too.  Decent stuff.

SKELETOON
The Curse of the Avenger
Label:  Revalve Records
Wow, it’s been a while since getting a just plain old good “Power metal” band/release.  That’s what this is.  Fist pumping, singalong power metal, which actually gets pretty fast and heavy in parts too.

AD VITAM
Stratosfear
Label:  Revalve Records
I saw this described as prog death metal… thinking it’d just be some heavier death metal with some riffy proggy type stuff happening.  This is actually like, almost heavier Dream Theater-like metal with growly vox.  Pretty cool actually.

Band: Revenience
Album: Daedalum
Label: Sliptrick records
Female fronted gothy power metal.

New Stuff This Week… 2/8/16

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 2/8/16
Feb 062016
 

MAGRUDERGRIND
II (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
Song less than 2 minutes long, fast intense brutal grindy stuff.  Screamy vox, not a lot of time to fuck around, kind of reminds me of all of the stuff that came from Relapse records back in the day.

Gehennah
Too Loud to Live, Too Drunk to Die
Metal Blade Records
Thrashy old school sound… maybe a heavier or similar style/sound to Motorhead.  In your face, but not all brutal or growly… just pissed off hard rock and rool with some groovin’ riffs.

AntropomorphiA
Necromantic Love Songs
Metal Blade Records
Basic old school growly cookie monster death metal with a little doomy feel.  This is a Reissued/Remastered EP originally from 1993

Deftones
“Prayers/Triangles” [Single]
Warner Bros
I’ve never been a big fan of these guys… their last album was ok, but this single, just sounds like their usual drivel.

Silver Snakes
Saboteur
Evil Ink
A hard rocky thing… probably a bit like Filter or NIN… this band founded by the guy that was in the crust/hardcore band Cathedrals.

Prong
X-No Absolutes
SPV
Classic catchy Prong sound… no one really sounds like Prong and that’s a good thing.  Has some elements from Cleansing, Prove You Wrong and Rude Awakening going on… great stuff!

Delain
Lunar Prelude
Napalm Records
Melodic female fronted metal.  A bit on the prog/symphonic metal side musically, and clean operatic vocals as usual for Delain.  Music is a bit synthy in parts and some live tracks on this EP

Adept
Sleepless
Napalm Records
Dejenty modern metalcore type stuff.  Reminds me a little bit of Unearth in parts, but this one gets into some clean stuff and clean singy vox too.

Fleshgod Apocalypse
King
Nuclear Blast
This might be what Dimmu Borgir might sound like if they still made music!  But say you mixed up their older more brutal stuff with Behemoth… yeahhhh  This is some awesome stuff.

Syka
Stay Wild (EP)
Manhattan Center Productions Inc.
Femaled fronted hard rock, almost like if Gwen Stefani became a hard rock singer.

Wishing Well
Chasing Rainbows
Inverse
Some classic hard rock… maybe like if Iron Maiden all of a sudden became a rock band instead of a metal band.  Vocals sound like Bruce a bit, and it’s just some classic hard rock type stuff.

Illusions Dead
Celestial Decadence
Self-Release
Kind of black metal, kind of death metal… maybe a little pinch of doom… just because of some meaty riffs and a general groovin’ tone… but yeah, blackened death metal.

MY SILENT WAKE
AN UNBROKEN THRENODY (2005 – 2015)
Label: Stone Groove Records
Classic doom metal with a little bit of a 70’s prog throwback.

Band: Department Of Correction / Agathocles
Album: –
Label: Give Praise records
DoC is kind of good grindy death metal.  Agathocles is one track of sludgey noisy death metal.

Band: Department Of Correction | Proletar
Album:
Label: Give Praise records
DoC… grindy fast death metal.  Proletar, is some more death metal with a little bit of a grind, but more on the raw death metal side of things.

Septagon
Deadhead Syndicate
Cruz Del Sur Music
Kind of a melodic thrash but a bit of a prog metal… almost a proggier Anthrax… great power proggy thrash.

Ravensire
The Cycle Never Ends
Cruz Del Sur Music
Some just “Metal”  melodic, a bit of a NWOBHM feel, some Maiden-like stuff… pretty cool overall.

The Erkonauts
I Did Something Bad
Kaotoxin Records
Some metal, a little bit of punk, some proggy metal, a good mix of all sorts of stuff.  Quiet slow parts, some heavier maybe doomy stuff and a pinch of a punk raw feel in a few parts (not all the time)

MOUNTAIN TAMER
MOUNTAIN TAMER
Argonauta Records
Kind of a stoner hard rock type thing with little bit of a doomy feel.

SHIVERS ADDICTION
Choose Your Prison
Label: Revalve Records
Thrashy classic metal, a little bit of a power metal hint, but overall, your traditional metal.

CENTRILIA
Memento Mori
Self-Released
Melodic death/thrash… pretty cool stuff, great riffs, catchy and heavy

VIOLENT X
Chemical Insomnia
Violent X Productions
Thrashy death metal.  Good and brutal, yet catchy, thrashy and a little bit melodic too.

Valyria
Steel Inquisition [single]
Self-Release
Why must one of the cooler things this week just be a single?  Kind of a symphonic melodic death thing with a pinch of folk metal (vocal-wise)  The clean vox are ok (almost an emo sound) but the  death vox are spot on and brutal.

Maiden Cane
“Dead Man’s Shoes”
early 90’s cheesy hard rock. (thankfully, just a single)  While it’s probably ok, just not really for the Mosh Pit.

Throes
Koro
Label: Independent
Meaty sludgey doomy metal.  Good distorted sludgey sound, so it’s not all totally depressing, some cool solos, a bit of a groove too.

SORROW PLAGUES
Sorrow Plagues
Self Released
Kind of an atmospheric black metal.  A little old school in the black metal parts, a little heavy on the synthy stuff, it’s a bit overpowering throughout.

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 2/1/16
Jan 302016
 

Prong
“Cut And Dry” [Single]
SPV
As with the first single, this is good classic catchy Prong!

Killswitch Engage
“Hate By Design” [Single]
Roadrunner
Well this track starts off brutal and full on metal, then shifts gears into a heavier KSE style… cool stuff, they don’t seem to be fucking around on this new one.

Anthrax
“Breathing Lightning” [Single]
Megaforce
As with the Prong… this song is a classic Joey Anthrax song… melodic, catchy with some hooks… not on the heavier/brutal side like the first single.  Sounds like it could have been on We’ve Come For You All as a radio single.  cool stuff.
Dream Theater
The Astonishing
Roadrunner
What can I say about the band that I call my favorite?  I mean, I’m automatically going to like it… What I like most about Dream Theater is the heavier “metal” moments… and sad to say there aren’t a whole lot of those on this 2 CD full on rock opera-like concept album.  Typically I say they are like Rush meets Metallica.  This album is more like Rush meets Styx.  Not that that’s a BAD thing, just like I said, I prefer more metal in my prog metal.  Still worth picking up… you’ll need some time to digest it, I know I need more time.

SEVEN SISTERS OF SLEEP
Ezekiel’s Hags (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
Doomy death metal with a bit of grind going on in the heavier stuff. The slower stuff has a good groove too.

OBSCURA
Akróasis (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
Technical, proggy, deathy, a bit metalcore-ish… but really tech death stuff.  Brutal in parts, melodic and chilled out in others… great stuff!

BLACK TUSK
Pillars of Ash (NA Promo)
Relapse Records
Stoner metal feel, but heavier and grittier.  So like extreme stoner?  Yeah.  Great meaty riffs, some good grooves, but aggressive too.

Striker
Stand In The Fire
Record Breaking Records
Traditional metal with some thrash leanings… and in some parts the heavy metal saxophone!  Overall, there’s a bit of an Iron Maiden feel mixed with some early 90’s hard rock type stuff.

Product Of Hate
Buried In Violence
Napalm Records
Catchy brutal thrash from Wisconsin’s very own Product of Hate.  Saw these guys at the Inferno last year.  Brutal techy not quite death metal, but heavier than thrash… great stuff.

Drowning Pool
Hellelujah
eOne Entertainment
As much as I wanted to hate this, it’s pretty catchy and good hard rockin’ stuff.  While still “solid rock”  it’s got a good groove and I’m sure it’d come across even heavier live too.  Not sure there will be a long term spot for this on the Mosh Pit, but it’s worth a listen.

Digitalife
Uroboros
Imminence Records
A sort of industrial melodic death type thing.  Screamy growling and electronic stuff too… good chugga chuggas and meaty riffs too.

Ketzer
Starless
Metal Blade Records
Melodic and kinda proggy melodic death type stuff with a bit of a black metal feel.

BLOODPHEMY
BLOODPHEMY

One Morning Left
Metalcore Superstars
Inverse
Emo-ish vox then getting into some growly stuff… so yeah “post metal” or metalcore stuff with singy emo stuff in parts too.  Oh yeah, some electronic dancy stuff here and there too.  Pretty diverse thing here, but as weird and “emo” as it gets, this Finnish band here is interesting.

DIVINITY
The Immortalist Part 2. Momentum
Self-Release (Asher)
4 song ep of groovin’ melodic proggy death metal.  Cool stuff.
