Return of the Reaper
Heavy power metal, you know that sometimes power metal gets kinda lame after a while, this has Power metal tendencies but sticks more to a traditional metal with some extra balls and edge to it. They know what they’re doing, why change?
You Can’t Stop Me
Nuclear Blast Entertainment
New singer, same brutal metal “brutalcore” Catchy parts, and chunky riffs and yeah some melody here and there too. Good stuff and comeback album.
White Devil Armory
Some people say they’re like the AC/DC of metal, albums and sound are similar, but really, they are more than that… they are part of the 2nd “big four” or the rest of the “big 8?” anyway, This one is heavy, catchy, lots of fast riffage and classic Blitz vocals. Love these guys.
(Black N Blue)
Classic hardcore metal and well, by the title of the album, they got it going on… it’s good stuff.
MILE MARKER ZERO
A Tool-like prog hard rock type thing. Without Tool around, someone’s got to do something similar, but not close enough to be a clone or “rip-off” I’d say they’re along the lines of a Karnivool or Fair to Midland
In The Nightside Eclipse 20th Anniversary Edition
Huh, to think this album is just about as old as the Mosh Pit (our radio show). I really wasn’t into black metal much back then, and I don’t think
Solid brutalcore with some melodic technical stuff going on. Wants me to hear more.
Upon a Burning Body
This has a quality where it feels “live” to me, like outside at some festival, in the summer at Mayhem or something, just something that really gets the crowd stirred up. Metalcore type stuff, but brutal and catchy.
Well, a reallllly long band name and a 5 song short EP. A sort of throwback 70′s thing, but a bit more raw and surf-punk-ish.
Unholy Union TAPE
Black/Death Metal. Raw, yet complex and tight. Blast beats, crazy guitars and BRUTAL!
Melodic death metal type stuff, catchy, and a couple of great covers on here too. “I Don’t Wanna Be Me” (Type O Negative) and “Descent” (Fear Factory)
Quality black metal, dark, melodic, fast and good production with hints of folk metal
THE BLACK ROOK
The Black Rook
Some stoner-type metal, reminds me of some heavier Trouble, but with maybe a bit more of a Sabbath quality in parts, or in others just a straight up hard rock vibe.
A classic melodic black metal sound. Lots of cold guitars and blast beats and screaming, but then you got some melodic background thing to pull things back a little bit.
Death Worship EP
Loud brutal frantic black/death metal. Production is a bit raw and garage-like. It’s just a 3 song EP.
Just The Tip
An aggressive thrashy metal album/band with an extra heavy edge… some brutal parts, but still keeping grounded in basic fast thrash
A slower doomy post-metal 3-song EP.
Baphomet Pan Shub-Niggurath LP
Fast, heavy death metal stuff… However, when it’s sent digitally, it’s just “Side 1″ and “Side 2″ so, gonna be a lil tough to play… argh.
Kult of Taurus / Erevos Aenaon
Born of Fire, Forged by Death – split CD
Both bands are old school thrashy black metal sounding stuff.
Metalcore which gets to some clean singy chorus stuff, but more like a Protest the Hero quality than an auto-tune mall core thing. Proggy, catchy and some pretty cool metalcore.
Horror Pain Gore Death
Brutal death metal, nothing fancy, just good old meat and potatoes death metal. Song titles like “Bathed in Phlegm” and “Septic Hole” are the real deal here folks.
A bit of a creepy ambient black metal thing
Fast, heavy, almost Dragonforce fast metal… but with more extreme, blackened vocals. Production has a lot of mid-range and not a lot of low end, which gives it more of a “cold” feel. Melodic stuff with keyboards… so overall, a melodic death/blackened thrash meets Dragonforce style metal.
Bread Buttered on both Sides
Heavy extreme thrash with some meedly melodic guitar solo stuff, I hear a little bit of Exodus in here.
