Doyle
As We Die
EMP
A good raw edge, with some good basic grooving hard rocking metal.  I’ve never really been a Misfits fan, for no other reason that I’m not that familiar!  haha… this isn’t much like what I remember from Misfits…  Like I said, just some good solid rockin’ groove metal ttype stuff.

Future Figment
Qualm
Self-Released
Kind of a prog hard rock thing, maybe a little like a Tool meets Porcupine Tree. There’s a heavy feeling, but also atmospheric and laid back.  Kind of cool stuff, maybe just not for regular mosh pit rotation.

KMFDM
“Hell Yeah” [Single]
earMUSIC
Typical techno-ish stuff, not much of a metal edge this time around on this single.  We’ll let Something Wonderful keep this one.

Execration
Return to the Void – radio single
Metal Blade Records
This is a bit of a blackened prog-ish metal.  Heavy, brutal, yet maybe a bit thrashy in parts, it feels raw, but yet keeps it heavy.

Gloom
Solaris
Entertainment One
Doomy death metal.  Brutal, sludgey but still heavy.  Brutal barked out growly vox.

Unleash The Archers
Apex
Napalm Records
Melodic death metal, female vox.  A bit on the power metal/Iron Maiden sound musically too.  High screamy female metal vox, and some good growls too… lots of great guitar work.

Tengger Cavalry
Sie On My Ride
M-Theory Audio
Kind of an atmospheric melodic rock.  Not really much on the metal side.

ATREXIAL
Souverain
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Brutal Blackened Death Metal. Heavy, catchy, evil… great stuff.

Acherontas
Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II)
W.T.C.Productions
Kind of black metal, a bit more brutal and melodic than the old school classic black metal.  But there is that cold and evil guitars and overall

Monobrow
The Nacarat
Trill Or Be Trilled
Kind of a stoner metal, a doomy thing, a throwback thing, good groove and seemingly all instrumental

Niviane
The Druid King
Self Released
A heavier power metal thing going on.  Clean vox, good crunch, but also a little bit of an epic thing too.

DRÅP
Rotten Till Allt Ont
Xtreem Music
Good bruising grooving death metal

StarGazer (Australia)
A Merging to the Boundless: Void of Voyce LP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
A bit of a melodic black metal. The black metal just comes from a little bit of the guitar tone, but overall, it’s proggy melodic death metal… and instrumental

Horrid (Italy)
Beyond the Dark Border
Dunkelheit Produktionen
Brutal death metal, great stuff

Akerbeltz (Spain)
Satanic
BlackSeed Productions
CLassic black metal, production is decent.  It’s evil and cold… a bit basic but decenet raw stuff.

Sapata
Satanibator
Inverse
Female fronted grooving hard rock, maybe a little doom/goth-like

Unaussprechlichen Kulten
Keziah Lilith Medea (Chapter X) CD/LP

Long name, good ol death metal.  Good grooves, a bit melodic but 100% brutal.

Wednesday 13
Condolences
Genre: Other
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
The same horror metal type thing that they helped pioneer and hone from Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson/Alice Cooper type stuff.  They do have their own sound, but a variation on the others.  Decent stuff.

Deity
Self-Titled
Self-Release
ooooh this is some technical brutal death metal stuff… maybe a littel bit of a blackened death sound.  great stuff!

Gravetemple
Impassable Fears
Svart Records
Noisy post metal doom black metal type stuff.  Meh.

Marthyrium
Beyond the Thresholds
BlackSeed Productions
Black metal, melodic, heavy, catchy, brutal too.  Good well rounded stuff.

Panopticon
Kentucky
Nordvis Produktion / Bindrune Recordings
Doomy, cold black metal, but then it’s got weird folksy interlude tracks.  It’s a bit more of a atmospheric post-metal overall.

BIRDFLESH / ORGAN DEALER
“Split” Album
Horror Pain Gore Death
Birdflesh is some good quick brutal death metal, maybe a bit raw and punky too.  Organ Dealer is good brutal grind.

Dead Asylum
Death Always Wins
Self-Release
Kind of a melodic death/blackened death metal.  Great brutal and heavy groove

Artist: Apallic
Release: Of Fate And Sanity
Record Label: Boersma-Records
Proggy death metal, kind of a melodic death, heavy in parts, laid back and chilled out in others.  The brutal parts are sick and techy, the other laid back stuff is a good time to get the energy back to thrash out with the metal freight train coming for you.

Band: Antidote
Album: The Truth + Bonus (demos 1990-1992) [Remastered]
Label: Minotauro records

A bit hardcore, a bit industrial, some groove metal, some raw heaviness going on.

Soulspell

Classic metal, with a little bit of a thrash edge.  SOme proggy power metal stuff with a big screamy powerful metal voice.

Band: Marche Funebre
Album: Into The Arms Of Darkness
Label: BadMoodManMusic
Doomy blackened death metal.  Decent grooves, long songs, kind of depressing, but then it gets going heavy in parts too.  INteresting.

Band: Calliophis
Album: Cor Serpentis
Label: Solitude productions
Doomy death metal.  Crunchy sloooow riffs

Band: Evoke Thy Lords
Album: Lifestories
Label: Solitude productions
Doom metal, death metal growly vox, music reminds me a bit of Trouble.
