 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 1/22/18
Jan 212018
 

Mammoth Grinder
Cosmic Crypt
Relapse
Classic death metal, a bit grindy, a little atmospheric (in the vox effects) Other than that, just full on old school death metal.

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals
Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue
Housecore
A sort of extreme metal, a little death/blackened grind sound musically, with classic Phil’s vox

Accuser
The Mastery
Metal Blade
Gritty German deathy thrash metal. Catchy, brutal, heavy thrash. great stuff.

Anvil
Pounding The Pavement
SPV
Solid classic metal as they always do… a little Motorhead feeling… decent stuff.

Between The Buried And Me
Condemned To The Gallows (Single)
Sumerian
New record deal, new album/single… this is more proggy than older stuff, it seems like they are getting a big more prog metal and less metalcore-ish. There’s extreme vox, clean vox. a lot of laid back stuff too.

Orphaned Land
Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs
Century Media Records
Usually this is Folky melodic death metal. There are some heavier parts, but mostly laid back melodic stuff with a middle eastern vibe… as I listen more, the symphonic and middle eastern stuff usually morph into some more heavier proggy melodic death type stuff too.

ZOM
Nebulos
Argonauta Records
A solid stoner metal grungy groove happening here.

Machine Head
Cartharsis
Nuclear Blast USA
A lot of press about this… well, I have to say, Machine Head is great and all, but I think the last few albums were getting a bit to almost power ballad-y… and songs were too long. From what I’ve heard so far, (a couple singles), theres still a bit clean vox, down tempo power ballad-parts, but not staying too long. Maybe almost going to a Supercharter/Burning Red sound, but not all ‘rappy” we’ll see.

Tribulation
Lady Death
Century Media Records
I just have a single, but this is some doomy proggy melodic metal, maybe a little blackened doom feel too. Would be nice to hear more.

Alestorm
Captain Morgan’s Revenge (10th Anniversary)
Napalm Records
Always entertaining fast, folky drinking metal. Catchy and fun!

Arkona
Khram
Napalm Records
Blackened doom. Extreme vox, mostly a melodic blackened sound, but there’s a bit of a post-metal doomy feel, some tracks get going in more of a death metal direction. Seems a bit more straightforward and not as folky as their previous releases

Fallen Utopia
Disequilibrium
Cursed Records
Full on brutal classic death metal, chugga chugga grooves with coookie monster vox, a little peekaboo into black metal here and there too.

Ectoplasma
Cavern of Foul Unbeings
Memento Mori
Good solid brutal death metal, with some great grooves and riffage

Somali Yacht Club
The Sea
Robustfellow Prods
Normally on an atmospheric post metal, it’d be thumbs down and “NEXT” this seems to have a little prog going on… a bit of a stoner metal vibe while all instrumental and mostly background music, it’s got enough interesting to keep listening.

Rotheads
Sewer Fiends
Memento Mori
This is some brutal death metal, old school feel with big grooves, a little bit of a low budget production feel, maybe a little blackened death thing going on too.

DEATH KEEPERS
Rock This World
Fighter Records
CLassic metal / power metal. GOod riffs, catchy tunes, just good old big voice hard rockin’ metal.

VARGRAV
Netherstorm (CD, LP)
Werewolf Records
Some classic atmospheric, fast old school black metal..

Black Space Riders
Amoretum Vol. 1
Black Space Records
A bit of a stoner metal, a bit of a doomy thing too, maybe a little bit of a rock prog thing.

VANTABLACK WARSHIP
Abrasive Pulmonic Speak
Self Released
Kind of a thrashy/heavy groove metal. Abrasive screamed vox, great catchy grooves and a little bit of hardcore thing too.

Beldam
Pasung
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
Sludgey blackened doom

COMMUNION (Chile)
The Communion (CD, LP, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
26 January 2018

COMMUNION (Chile)
At the Announcement (CD, LP, TAPE)
The Sinister Flame / Hells Headbangers
26 January 2018

UNTERVOID
Untervoid
Osmose Productions
Blackened death metal, some melodic death, some technicality, some evil dark type stuff too.

The Dead Centuries
Race Against Time
Self-Release
Seems to be all instrumental, and just a classic metal… a bit proggy which will happen with any sort of metal instrumental, good drumming, guitar work, etc.

Vinide
Reveal
Record label: Inverse Records
Symphonic/Epic power/prog metal. Stays pretty heavy with that epic feel but also does get into some power ballad type stuff too.

Deadheads
This One Goes To 11
High Roller Records
A hard rockin’ stoner metal thing with a little bit of a punk and classic rock thing

Wyrmwoods
Earth Made Flesh
Record label: Inverse Records
Atmospheric Black Metal, fast and creepy

NYDVIND
Seas of Oblivion
MALPERMESITA Records
black metal and maybe a bit of a more modern black metal with a classic feel. A bit technical and brutal too.

Painted Black
Raging Light
Self Released
Kind of a gothy hard rock, a bit laid back, chilled out (older middle-times) Moonspell type thing.

Escaping Amenti
Awakening
Self Released
This is a bit metalcore, a bit modern groove metal, it’s catchy, gets a little sing-a-long-ish

New Stuff This Week… 1/15/18

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 1/15/18
Jan 152018
 

Tricounty Terror
Revenge
EMP
Southern fried bluesy hard rockin’ metal type stuff from a 5 piece all female with attitude band. Decent stuff.

The Crown
Iron Crown – radio single
Metal Blade Records
One thing over the years that we’ve learned… The Crown doesn’t fuck around. This single is no different, fast, catchy, heavy and leaves me wanting the rest of the album dammit.

Black Label Society
Grimmest Hits
Entertainment One
A new album with some big doomy bluesy hard rockin stuff. Lots of grooves, a more Sabbath-like sound happening. A lot of BLS’s stuff lately, as been a bit “samey” and I find myself really digging this so far!

earth caller
degenerate
entertainment_one
This kind of reminds me a little bit of a Burning Red era of Machine Head, some good metal stuff, some decent hardcore stuff, but some more like, catchy melodic almost nu-metal stuff. So yeah, by modern standards, this would be a sort of metal core. But it’s a pretty good hardcore base too.

Leaves Eyes
Sign Of THe Dragonhead
AFM Records
I’ve always kind of written this band off as mostly a typical fe-metal thing, operratic female vox, some power metal-ish music. This one seems to get a bit heavier, a bit of a folk metal thing too, also with death metal growls, kind of more into an Epica sound.

Audrey Horne
Blackout
Napalm Records
Kind of a blusey hard rockin’ stoner metal type thing… This is their 6th album as what started as a side project for some black metal band guy’s side project. Melodic and almost classic rock ish.

Heidevolk
Vuur Van Verzet
Napalm Records
Folk metal, but a sort of melodic death thing with Folk… or is it folk with melodic death? whatever, it’s both and it’s catchy, fun and heavy in parts. This band has been around a while and have a good thing going.

Terror Universal
Make Them Bleed
Minus Head Records
This has a guy from Ill Nino, Ahrue from Machine Head. A horror grooving metal thing. A bit of a Slipknot style of metal, kind of heavy, yet accessible and yet heavy too.

GREBER
Cemetery Preston
Pink Lemonade Records (CD) (asher)
Kind of grindy doom, some sludge, but some grooves too.

Malformity
The Rapturous Unraveling
Boris Records
Two tracks of good ol Grooving death metal.

Obscene
Sermon to the Snake
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
A little doom, some hardcore, death metal and grooves. Vox are a little black metal screamy, but overall, this could just be old school death metal, maybe with an Obituary vibe.
18 January 2018

DRUID LORD
Grotesque Offerings (CD, LP, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
Doomy death metal, good slow groove and a dark evil feel.
19 January 2018

SPECTRAL LORE / JUTE GYTE
Helian
I, Voidhanger Records
A split EP of some out there post metal/atmospheric black metal type stuff.
19 January 2018

Frost Giant
The Harlot Star
Transcending Records
I hear some black metal, I hear technical death, I hear melodic death, extreme thrash, even a tiny bit of folk metal. It’s fast and not messing around. good stuff.

Lechery
We Are All Born Evil
Bleeding Music Records
This is some classic metal/power metal stuff. Good solid standard good ol classic metal.

Dark Hound
Dawning
Self-Release
A metal band from Nashville… what!? Yeah. Kind of a classic metal/hard rock with some grooves and melodic hooks.

Sonic Prophecy
Savage Gods
Rockshots Records
Kind of a classic metal, good screamy high vox, a bit of a prog/power metal thing going on a little too.

Anarchos
Invocation of Moribund Spirits CD/LP
Blood Harvest
A grooving doomy death metal, heavy, with a bit of a grungy tone. Decent stuff.

Faceless Burial
Grotesque Miscreation CD
Blood Harvest
Death metal… maybe a little gore/grindy.

DEATHLESS LEGACY
Rituals Of Black Magic
Scarlet Records
Female fronted prog metal, a bit of a melodic power prog thing happening.

Dustin Behm
The Beyond
Rockshots Records
This is some instrumental prog metal, a little bit like Jeff Loomis’ solo stuff, good grooves and shredding and heavy enough to keep it interesting.

Noturnall
9
Rockshots Records
Prog metal! A bit melodic death-ish, heavier music, vox are growly and singy, good melodic prog keyboard stuff… Great release for a prog metal fan.

Perfect Beings
Vier
InsideOut
We got some prog rock! Not pushing into metal, just good old rock type stuff, Porcupine Tree/ Steven Wilson type stuff.

Band: Concrete Eden
Album: Left
Label: NRT Records
Hardcore/Nu Metal from Austria. Kind of a neat throwback thing, production is vocal centered. A fun listen.

Luciferian Insectus
Zal van Beherit
Label: Apollyon Entertainment
Blackened death metal, a bit more on the black metal side of things with some evil happenings.

Crimson Devils
A Taste For Blood
Self-Released
Good bluesy stoner metal with some monster grooves. Short catchy songs.

Ignitor
Haunted by Rock & Roll
EMP Label Group
A classic metal here also poking into a little thrash in parts, some bluesy metal in parts, and vox getting screamy in parts, regular singing, and growling here and there too. Cool stuff.

Band: Mile
Album: The World In Focus
Label: Rambo Music
This band has a classic metal feel, but also maybe a little thrash and melodic metal, catchy grooves are going on good too.

Khiral
Chained
Inverse
I’d have to throw this on the Melodic death pile. Maybe a bit of a thrashy feel working into more melodic death

Blaspherion
Restus Corpus
Self Released
Some South American thrash music with death metal vox from April of 2017. Production is a little raw.

Bleeding Gods
Dodekathlon
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
A Dutch band that has a bit of an epic blackened death metal thing going on. Think Behemoth with a tiny bit of Dimmu Borgir.

Crossbones
WWIII
Nadir Music
This Albanian band is a little bit thrash, some groove metal, some little doom things going on, as it’s a little downtempo in parts… Overall, it’s kind of a melodic groove metal that’s kind of accessible.

Buck Tow Truck
Death Wields A Six String
Self Released
A sort of classic metal, heavy hard rock, production is ok, a bit of a horror/doom feel too.

Storm of Particles
Gaea Hypothesis
Self Released
I’d have to say this one falls into Melodic death, a good set of meedly melodic guitars with some death growls all on metal that’s not brutal, not just power metal, a good center of melodic death.

SAXON
Thunderbolt [Single]
Silver Lining Music
Solid classic metal. These guys stand the test of time, and another good effort here on this single.

Blood and Brutality
Decor Macabre
Self Released
As the band name suggests, this could be brutal and maybe gory… and well, these guys have the perfect name, because it’s a bit gore metal with brutal death metal and monster grooves, even melodic in some parts. But mostly brutal classic death metal.

TYRANNO
“The Great Homage Night” Single
PRC MUSIC
A classic metal, maybe a NYOBHM type sound.

2018

THRIF – The Human Race Is Filth
Title: Human Exposed (EP)
Label: Independent
Kind of a sludgy crusty death metal
Release Date: December 06 (Digital), January 01, 2018 (CD)

Bestialord
Law of the Burning
Symbol of Domination and Cimmerian Shade Recordings
Grooving sort of thrash with a little death metal style vox. (not quite cookie monster, but growly shouts)
1 January 2018

Magick Touch
Blades, Chains, Whips & Fire
Edged Circle Productions
Blassic hard rock, just good grooving stuff, maybe with a little bit of a Thin Lizzy vibe

Minneriket
Anima Sola
Akslen Black Art Records
January 2nd, 2018
Old school doomy black metal

ABSQUE COR
W?drówk? Haniebnie Zako?czy?
Godz Ov War Productions
More old school black metal, with maybe some darker doomy stuff

ROTTING KINGDOM
Rotting Kingdom
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Doomy death metal, some cool grooves

LABYRINTH ENTRANCE
LABYRINTH ENTRANCE
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Doomy black metal.

WARFIST / EXCIDIUM
Laws of Perversion & Filth
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Warfist is some raw (meh production) blackened thrash, kind of decent. Excidium has an old school blackened death/thrash thing going on.

Snogg
Abeloth EP
Self Released (Qabar)
Black Metal, a bit post-metal and the production is muddy

Damnation’s Hammer
Unseen Planets, Deadly Spheres
Self Released (via email)
A good thrashy classic metal with some decent grooves.

WHITE WIZZARD
INFERNAL OVERDRIVE
M-THEORY AUDIO
This is some good classic melodic metal, almost Judas Priest-ish, lots of good guitar work… The production is good, maybe a little punchy

Allegaeon
Animate (single)
Metal Blade Records
A leftover track from their 2016 album, they are releasing it as a single now… and it’s great, just as everything else on that album. They keep true to the original while making it heavier.

Magnum
Lost On The Road To Eternity
SPV
Classic British rock band, since they’ve been around since the 70’s they do have a throwback sound and a bit of a modern production and feel too. This is more of a classic rock type thing, so I’m not sure about where to put this on the Mosh Pit…

Watain
Trident Wolf Eclipse
Century Media Records
Wow, it’s been 5 years since the last Watain album, and as much as I’d like to say it’s worth the wait… it’s also like, hey, you guys are too good to be waiting 5 years between albums! This could be up there for best of 2018 when we recap the best of the year… about a year from now. This is what a black metal album should be, solid production, brutal yet catchy and evil melodic heaviness.

Tragedian
Unholy Divine
Ice Warrior Records
Classic power metal, big voice, I’d say musically, it’s a little faster and heavier than a typical power metal band. Good stuff.

Summoning
With Doom We Come
Napalm Records
Kind of a folky doom metal.

Corrosion Of Conformity
No Cross No Clown
Nuclear Blast Entertainment
Just a single so far, but right off the bat, and old school groove right out, like, Deliverance. First album with the Pepper Keenan lineup reunited. This is good stuff.

Avatar
Avatar Country
Entertainment One
Just a single here too, but a good catchy groove going to a more experimental clean vox thing. These guys are kind of a modern day Polkadot Cadaver quirky with some heavy catchy metal.

Vhorthax
Nether Darkness 12″ MLP/MCD
Iron Bonehead
I guess this would be a blackened death metal, vox seem a bit “atmospheric” in the black metal realm, whereas the music seems to be more of a blackened tech death
5 January 2018

Trigger
Cryogenesis
Hellfire Records
A classic type thrash, but with some melodic stuff too, kind of comparable to Trivium, maybe a bit heavier on the heavy parts, and more singy melodic on the melodic parts? make sense?
January 5th, 2018

Tankard
Hymns For The Drunk
AFM Records
Fun classic thrash sound with a modern full sound and fun lyrics, mostly having to do with partying and drinking! This is a “best of” for stuff up to like, 2010
12 January 2018

Violent Opposition
Utopia/Dystopia
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
Fast kind of grindy brutal technical death, neat stuff

Hellish God
The Evil Emanations
Everlasting Spew Records
Blackened death, fast and brutal, catchy… good stuff

Hamferð
Támsins likam
Metal Blade Records
Kind of a doomy dark death metal, a bit of a katatona/ less proggy opeth
9 January 2018

CRUENTATOR
Ain’t War Hell?
Xtreem Music
This is kind of a thrashy metal along the lines of a Kreator. Cool stuff! Heavy with no letting up.

Kayak
Seventeen
Inside Out
Melodic classic prog rock. Nothing metal here, but as a prog fan, this has some longer tracks and might be for a fan of some older Spock’s Beard and Porcupine tree.
Release date: Friday, January 12, 2018

ELEGIAC
Black Clouds of War
De Tenebrarum Principio
Kind of a doomy black metal. Classic black metal going on, but maybe a little more slow in some parts.
12 January 2018

GREYFELL
Horsepower
Argonauta Records
Doomy atmospheric metal, occasionally getting into a little stoner groove… but mostly really just kind of depressing.
Release Date: January 12th, 2018

Infected Syren
Infected Syren
Self Released
A sort of classic metal, but a horror/ fun type feel to it. Very prominent guitars, but a good catchy groove hard rockin’ metal.

Scaphism
Unutterable Horrors
Horror Pain Gore Death
Grooving death metal, a little bit thrashy in parts, but really just a great catchy brutal-ish grooving death metal.
(set for release on January 12th 2018)

Irdorath
Denial of Creation
Wormholedeath
Blackened um, metal. It’s not black metal, it’s not death metal, Ok, I guess it’d fit into some death metal category… probably a melodic blackened death thing. It’s not full on BRUTAL, but it’s fast and heavy, almost extreme thrash… Good stuff.

SHINING
X – Varg Utan Flock
Season of Mist
A bit doom, and some black metal elements, a more melodic death

SINISTRO
Sangue Cassia
Season of Mist
Female fronted blackened doom…

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on More New Stuff from 2017
Jan 062018
 

Some reviews of more stuff that trickled in since the last “new stuff” post… all releases from 2017

Tralineate
Ike Antz Leap
Self-Release
This is some death metal with a little bit of a thrash groove. Seems like a drum machine supplying the beats, but good stuff.

Band: Saintorment
Album: Defective Mind
Label: More Hate productions
You can never really go wrong with good thrash, and this is it… a heaver fast thrash, good production. Great fast riffing, edgy vox and kind of technical too!

Red Raven Down
Phantoms
Record label: Inverse Records
Kind of a metalcore, but maybe more towards a melodic death as there aren’t really much for breakdowns or emo chorus type stuff. catchy, yet heavy and easy to listen to

Mountaris
Desolate
Transcending
Kind of a doom or melodic prog

THE PARASITE PARADISE
“His Only Begotten Son (A.D. MMXVII)”
Cursed Order/Self-released
October 31st, 2017
Doomy black metal on this 2 song thing.

Heyoka’s Mirror
“Loss of Contact With Reality”
Self Released
Definitely a prog metal edge on this, a bit of a Devin Townsend/System of a Down type prog metal thing. Cool stuff.

Rasgo
ECOS DA SELVA URBANA
Rastilho Records
October 27th, 2017
Classic catchy heavier/extreme thrash. heavy/brutalish spanish language vox.

Zifir
Kingdom of Nothingness
Duplicate Records
Classic Black metal.
22 September 2017

Lunar
Theogony
Divebomb
I think I’ve seen this on a few people’s best of 2017 list, and I’m glad I finally got it… Progressive death metal, I guess I could compare a bit to Opeth, as there are death growls, classic proggy music, heaver death metal stuff, and melodic stuff.

Shields
Use Protection
Self Released
A fun lovin’ hard rock thing, along the lines of a Steel Panther, party fun good times!
(out on November 17th, 2017)

Band: SnakeyeS
Album: Metal Monster
Label: Not on label
Classic metal/thrash type stuff. Catchy riffs, heavy thrash type stuff, but more of a classic just “metal” with a little power metal leaning.
Release date: November 25, 2017

Release: Nevicate
Shattered (single)
Record label: Inverse Records
One track of female fronted Symphonic metal, pretty decent clean vox, heavy-ish music.

Circus Of Power
Four
Noize In The Attic Records
This NYC band has been around a while, from mid-80’s through the 90’s then broke up… and this is now their first album since 1993. A good grooving hard rock
8 December 2017

CYANIDE SUNDAE
Nothing to Lose
SLiptrick
A little crusty hard rock with a good grooving low end.
Dec 12

Band: De La Muerte
Album: Venganza
Label: Revalve records
Hard to really pigeonhole this one… just a good grooving metal.

Band: Secure
Album: Chasing Rainbows
Label: Not on label
They say alternative metal, and I guess I could hear that, it gets kind of a “solid rock” type metal, and also going into some more melodic hard rock stuff. They’re from Russia, and the heavier stuff has a cool heavy catchy groove.
Release date: November 23, 2017

MYRHOLT
Album: Med Samme Naal, Under Samme Maane
Style: Black Metal
Label: Myrholt Design
we got this album, along with a bunch of other recordings from the same band. (Singles 2017, Holands Himmelrand EP, The Poe Sessions album) The band dates back to the mid-90’s doing old school Norweigian black metal. Decent grooves, cold, evil sound…
Release date: December 14, 2017

Corbian
Supremacy of Fire
25th November, 2017
I’d have to file this under melodic death metal, with a pinch of black metal… but some big grooves too

Deep Dark River (side project of Morgan Rider of Vesperia)
(single) – Allure of The Earth (Woods of Ypress cover)
Self-Release
21 December 2017
This is a tribute to the guy from Woods of Ypress that died… kind of just a doomy solo/acoustic vocal single song.

Band: Bridge Of Diod
Album: Of Sinners And Madmen
Label: Sliptrick records
Release date: November 30, 2017
Kind of a melodic classic metal, but also some thrashy elements too.

Xael
Singles – Apathy of The Immortal, The Last Arbiter, Watchers of Xan
Test Your Metal Records
5 December 2017
A melodic blackened epic death thing, pretty cool stuff, almost like an Opeth meets Dimmu Borgir.

Band: Mass Burial
Album: Breeding Plagues
Label: Immortal Souls Productions
Release date: November 25, 2017
Death metal with a little sludgy groove
