Eighteen Visions
XVIII
Rise Records
Heavy metalcore kind of leaning more on the screamo side of things but a good groove

Miss May I
Shadows Inside
Sharptone Records
Starts off pretty brutal and a bit melodic too, but then making more of a modern metalcore type thing. Clean vox aren’t singy/whiny, just a bit more melodic-ish. Decent stuff for this genre

Barb Wire Dolls
Rub My Mind
Motorhead Music/UDR
Female fronted classic hard rock, maybe a tiny punk stuff in parts, otherwise, just melodic hard rock

MERRIMACK
Omegaphilia
Brutal and heavy blackened death metal. The single was good, this is the full and it’s good stuff. A maybe little Behemoth type thing going on where it’s not full on death metal and not full on black metal, just a good mix of the two.

FOSCOR
Les Irreals Visions
Season of Mist
Doomy melodic metal, kind of like a Katatonia type thing.

Kind of thrash, kind of classic melodic metal and abrasive vox. Kind of a neat mix of stuff to make it just good metal with an extreme edge

Legacy of Emptiness

A gothy and synthy metal, vox are distorted but a gothy sound, melodic and almost folk sounding, a bit over produced too.

Old School black metal, not so great production, heavy dark and evil sounding.

MUTANK
W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T
Boonsdale Records
A bit of a classic thrash with a funky groove. Quick songs without fucking around maybe a little punky in parts. Cool stuff though!

The Summoned
Sessions
Self-Release
Back in the day, this would be death metal, nowadays this has some melodic stuff, some technical stuff maybe a little “core” going on… it’s brutal, and a pinch of a Meshuggah thing going on… also some proggy all over the place stuff. So yeah, cool stuff.

Perpetual Rage
Empress Of The Cold Stars

Big screamy voice classic metal… a bit more of a heavier groove than just plain old classic metal.

JORN
Life on Death Road

New album, new band and two years in the making. You know you’re going to have one of the best voices in metal. This is all just some good melodic classic metal… good stuff, nothing really heavy, but not all power ballads either.

CORNERS OF SANCTUARY
Cut Your Losses
Self Released (Online Metal Promo)
Classic metal, a little bit of thrash… mostly just some early 90’s sounding thrash with a high singy voice, maybe a little bit like the band Sanctuary!
