New Stuff This Week… 9/26/16

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 9/26/16
Sep 252016
 

OPERATION: MINDCRIME
Resurrection
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
As much as I want to slag on Geoff (aka “the Vest”)  this album sounds like the later pre- Todd Queensryche.  Good groove, catchy hard rock type stuff.  I could probably do without the Sax in some songs, but pretty decent.  Yeah, it’s not really a metal record like the other Ryche guys are doing… but it’s good.

Winterfylleth
The Dark Hereafter
Candlelight
Classic black metal with a little bit of a drony doomy feeling going on… otherwise full on melodic black metal.  Good stuff.

Brant Bjork
Tao Of The Devil
Napalm Records
A throwback classic hard rock type thing, with maybe a little Alice In Chains vibe too.

Opeth
Sorceress
Nuclear Blast Entertainment
As with the past couple “new Opeth” sounding records (sans growls and death metal stuff) this follows the Proggy throwback hard rock type stuff that Opeth has now been known for.  I think this one throws in a few more pink floyd-ish slower/melodic tracks… but a track like Chrysalis gets the heavy prog back in gear to make up for it.

Decivilize
Decivilize
Pavement Music
A groove metal with a little prog thing/modern commerical metal thing all going on too.

Toxic Shock
Feeling The Pain (EP)
Independent
Classic thrash, a bit raw and maybe a pinch of punk

INDIVIA
Horta
Argonauta Records
Stoner metal.  good meaty groove.

Deathcult (Switzerland)
Beasts of Faith
Invictus Productions
Good ol brutal death metal, maybe a little bit of a blackened death metal thing.  Good production, brutal!

Silence The Yearning
Unto My Death I Yield
SlowDriver Productions
Kind of a melodic heavy deathy doom thing

KZOHH
Trilogy: Burn Out The Remains
Label:  Ashen Dominion
three really long songs of black metal… at first I thought it was just going to be annoying, but it gets kind of brutal and a good headbanger in a creepy black metal way.

HALSHUG
Sort Sind
Southern Lord
Blackened punky sounding death metal, fairly short songs, in your face.

Harri Kauppinen
Helvetin laulut
Concorde Music Company
Down tempo doomy stuff with finnish clean vox.  Meh.

Triple Cripple
Nursing Home For Retired Hookers
Horror Pain Gore Death
Decent death metal, a bit raw, but a bit on the gore/humor side of extreme death metal.

Band: NordWitch
Album: Mørk Profeti
Label: Satanath records / Darzamadicus records
brutal melodic death metal, cookie monster female vox with other screams going on.  Fast, intense, catchy too.  GOod stuff.

FUZZ EVIL
Fuzz Evil
Battleground Records
Stoner metal, good groove and a little throwback thing too

Kryptos
Burn Up The Night
AFM Records
Melodic kind of power metal meets black metal.  Music is more melodic classic metal and vox are more of an abrasive feel.  A bit thrash vox in one song, screamy black metal style in another.  decent stuff…

ALTAR OF OBLIVION
Barren Grounds (CD, TAPE)
Shadow Kingdom
Classic metal / power metal-ish.  Melodic, a bit doomy on track 3

Abigail (Japan)
The Final Damnation LP/CD

Heavy heavy thrash, a bit catchy, some old school feeling too … good stuff

MOASE
Vertigo
Signal Rex
Post-metal ambient doomy type stuff.

EXCUSE
Goddess Injustice (12″ MLP)
Shadow Kingdom / Hells Headbangers
Brutal heavy blackened thrash… a bit raw in the production, but it’s all good.

CRYFEMAL
D6s6nti6rro
Osmose Productions
Black metal.  Cold guitars, crazy screamy vox, some good melody, heavy drumming.  GOod classic black metal with good production too!

Phil Rudd
Head Job
Wave 365 Media
Just a straight-ahead classic rock type thing… coming from the former AC/DC drummer.

Truckfighters
V
Century Media
Laid back groovin’ prog rock.  A bit of a stoner metal vibe too.   Good stuff, maybe just not for regular mosh pit play.

ORDO OBSIDIUM
A crooked path to desolation
Eisenwald
Good melodic black metal.   brutal while still staying with some melodies.

Conqueror (Canada)
War.Cult.Supremacy DLP/DCD+DVD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Brutal blackened death metal… it’s raw and heavy

Seremonia
Pahuuden äänet
Svart
Melodic ambient maybe gothy stoner stuff.  female fronted sounding.

Re-Armed
The Era of Pracarity
Saarni Records
There’s a classic thrash vibe here, but more modern and heavier.  Great stuff!

Lordi
Monstereophonic (Theaterror vs. Demonarchy)
AFM Records
Commercial-ish Over the top hard rockin’ metal I think I used to say it was Europe’s answer to Gwar?  Well, it’s still “metal” but more like what you’d see at some big solid rock fest.

Katla
Embryo
Svart Records
Stoner metal with high clean vox, a bit doomy tempo-wise

FREYA
Grim
Fast Break! Records
Heavy, melodic in parts, maybe a little bit metalcore, but really just a heavy groove metal thing going on…bordering on a melodic death sound.

Brutally Deceased
Satanic Corpse CD
Doomentia
Brutal death metal with a pinch of evil black metal.  Good stuff!

Band: Mumincunt
Album: Visor Fran Muminskogarnas Morker
Label: Heathen Tribes
Blackened death metal… pretty brutal, muddy production, but you can hear there’s something cool in there.

Band: Aggravator
Album: Sterile Existence
Label: Dead Center productions
Heavy thrash.  Like, a little nod to the old school, but this is basically thrashed up death metal.   Great stuff.  Monster fast riffage, catchy and brutal vox (not cookie monster) but just heavy and abrasive!

Asphyx
Incoming Death
Century Media
Kind of a groovin’ doomy death metal.  First album in 4 years from these veterans.  It’s decent with a big meaty sound

SWINE OVERLORD
Entheogenesis
Gore House Productions
Good meaty brutal death metal.  Good production and solid brutality with a huge grove.

FAR BEYOND
A Frozen Flame Of Ice
Label:  Aeterna Records
Melodic death metal, decent stuff, a little of an “epic” feel, and the heavy stuff is brutal. good mix of both.

Crator
The Ones Who Create : The Ones Who Destroy
Self-Release
Blackened death metal that doesn’t fuck around.  Brutal, (yes, I use that word a lot!) great riff, catchy stuff and harsh growly vox.

Abigorum & Cryostasium
Unholy Ghost Liturgy (Collaboration Album)
Satanath Records & Abstruse Eerie Radiance
Collaboration between two bands (Abigorum & Cryostasium) to make an album together of psychedelic doomy black metal.  Mostly noisy frenetic black metal… and noise… lots of noise… ugh.

NONEXIST
The New Flesh
Self Released
A little thrash, a bit groove, prog metal and some death metal… a great mix of technicality and brutality.

RUPTURED BIRTH
Transmutant
CDN Records
Brutal death metal with technciality too!

BARISHI
Blood from the Lion’s Mouth
Season of Mist
Kind of laid back, kind of black metal, brutal in parts, chilled out proggy stuff too

SAINT VITUS
Live Vol. 2
Season of Mist
Live album, a bit raw and bootleg-ish sounding.  Captures a live vibe well I guess… Doomy throwback from a band that’s been around since before it was a throwback, when it was just it., right?

RavenEye
NOVA – Download
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Good classic hard rock, you know that AOR stuff we all knew and loved in the early 90’s?  Good catchy anthemic songs but also a good groove with a singer that can really sing. Yeah.  this is that kinda stuff and it’s cool.  (just not really for the Mosh Pit!)

New Stuff This Week… 9/19/16

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 9/19/16
Sep 172016
 

King 810
La Petite Mort or A Conversation With God
Roadrunner
I thought I remembered these guys being a bit heavier, while yeah, this has a big heavy meaty sound, the tempo seems a bit slow-doomish, or that slow buildup which doesn’t really ever really hit that big heavy breakdown, heavy part.  I feel like I’m missing something.   Either way, it’s still got a heavy feel.

Heaven Below
Good Morning Apocalypse
EMP
Kind of a classic metal meets a bit of a more new-ish commercial metal type thing.  Decent, but nothing really standy

Airbourne
Breakin Outta Hell
Spinefarm
Well, these guys haven’t changed much over the years, keeping that AC/DC hard rockin’ sound alive!

TYKETTO
Reach Radio Edit – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Classic AOR type rock on this single.  Decent stuff.

The Agonist
Five
Napalm Records
Similar to what they’ve done in the past, a good mix of melodic death with the clean and harsh famale vox

Every Time I Die
Single
Epitaph Records
Catchy metalcore, great riffage, good energy, and yeah!

Epica
The Holographic Principle
Nuclear Blast USA
From the band that really defines this genre… Epic metal, heavy, and just a big full sound with big female vox, orchetration and a great gritty edge… they do not disappoint once again.

Watts
The Black Heart Of Rock N Roll
Rum Bar Records
Kind of an old school AC/DC type rock n roll.

Band: Aggravator
Album: Sterile Existence
Country: USA
Label: Dead Center productions
Heavy catchy classic thrash.  Good stuff

Source
Return to Nothing
Pavement Entertainment
So, do you like Tool?  Do you like Porcupine Tree?  I think I have the band for you!  And it’s pretty good.  Not super heavy, but great groove, catchy stuff, and proggy too.

Charred Walls of the Damned
Creatures Watching Over the Dead
Metal Blade Records
So glad to have a new release from this band.  So much talent and a great flavor of metal that just isn’t represented enough.  Kind of a heavy power metal.  Ripper Owens still providing vocals… catchy, heavy, and big screamy vox.  Meedly guitars, and solid drumming.  Great stuff all around.

Allegaeon
Proponent for Sentience
Metal Blade Records
A few singles came out ahead of the full album release, and you could already tell this album was going to be great… Every track is solid, heavy, catchy, techy, brutal, and even the Rush Cover of “Subdivisions” is a gem.  This album shot up to the top of my best of 2016 list… this is awesome.

Band: The Kreoles
Album: “Psycho”
Label: Sliptrick records
So nice when the short description of the band says it all:  “Style: Female fronted Rock / Metal”   Yup.  Not too heavy, just straight ahead rock with female vox.  Yup.

Division Vansinne
DIMENSION DARKNESS (Full Length)
Black Lion Records
Good brutal death metal and a headbanging groove.

TRUE WIDOW
AVVOLGERE
Relapse
Doom, downtempo, slow, depressing.  sigh.

The Holeum
Negative Abyss
Lifeforce
kind of a melodic post-metal dark ambient thing with a little bit of a hardcore-ish thing

Almah
E.V.O
Test Your Metal Records
We liked the last release, and I like this one.  Former Angra front man’s “new” band… now on thier 3rd album.  Good classic metal/power/prog metal from Brazil.

Darkwell
Moloch
Massacre Records
Kind of a gothy female fronted metal/rock.

Insomnium
Winter’s Gate
Century Media
This is some big epic proggy melodic death… it’s one track and 40 minutes long on the nose.   Great stuff, but probably not toooo radio friendly! haha.

Predatory Light
Predatory Light
Invictus Productions
Melodic death… mostly on the brutal death metal side, great melodic blackend guitar stuff.  Good one here!

NEUROSIS
Fires Within Fires
Neurot Recordings
Oh boy… notoriously not one of my favorite bands… they carry the flag for the style of Post metal that I really do like the least, so it’ll be hard for me to even think about liking this.  And now listening to it.  Depressing, yet melodic and to me?  boring. My opinon still stands.

Sin of God
AENIGMATA  (Full Length)
LABEL    Satanath Records & Murdher Records
Good brutal evil death metal.

Band: Númenor
Album: Sword and Sorcery + Bonus MCD
Label: Stygian Crypt productions
Epic power metal, not really unlike Epica.  A great heavier almost death metal edge, more into melodic death metal.  Great epic thing going on too.. best of both worlds.  Great stuff.

BRAIN TENTACLES
Brain Tentacles
Relapse
Some instrumental stuff, kind of a metallica Jass and experimental with some horns and really proggy type stuff.   It has a little bit of a dark down feeling, but yet, maybe a pinch of a Mr. Bungle feel.

Band: Stojar
Album: At Twilight of Battles By The Hammer Of Thunderstorms
Label: Stygian Crypt productions
This is that style of folk metal that has all that accordion/keyboard stuff, but stays pretty heavy, while maintaining that little bouncy sound.

OKKULTOKRATI
Raspberry Dawn
Southern Lord
Kind of sludgey, kind of atmospheric black metal, kind of doomy maybe a little punk.  It’s a bit out there

Band: The Extinct Dreams
Album: Fragmenty vechnosti
Label: Stygian Crypt productions
Funeral doom long songs.  meh.

SUMERLANDS
Sumerlands
Relapse
A heavier hard rock thing, bordering on prog

SikTh
Opacities
Peaceville Records

Classic thrash, great groove, riffs and vox that get over the top too (there’s an growly edge while getting screamy too)

Heaven Shall Burn
Wanderer
Century Media Records
This band hasn’t done anything bad yet, no reason to start now! Heavy melodic death metal, great groove, heavy, brutal, catchy, it’s got all that great stuff.

Brujeria

Just a single here so far, but that grindy mexican metal is back!  Brutal, heavy and I’m sure a sense of humor too… can’t wait for more!

Monte Pittman

Metal Blade Records
Catchy thrash-ish stuff, some gets really heavy, others stay good and melodic.  Good diverse thing from a great and diverse guitar player!

In Obscurity Revealed
Grim Fumes of Revelation 7″ EP
Blood Harvest
Just a couple songs, but some great melodic black metal or blackened death or whatever… it’s heavy, brutal a little “cold” (black metal) sounding too.
