“Seizure And Desist” [Single]
This is pretty decent heavy metal, a bit hardcore/metalcore and melodic death-ish. This is that project with Dave Lombardo and Mike Patton. This first single has EAS alert tones in it, so technically it’s illegal to play on the radio. I’ll try to make a better radio edit.
“Earth Scar” [Single]
Heavy, technical-ish, a bit more thrashy than they used to do…Great riffs, catchy and kinda brutal-thrash.
Metal Blade Records
Grooving, catchy, brutal, abrasive vox.. great stuff as always! Glad to have new material!
Hate – Radio Edit
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Catchy hard rock.
Till Fjalls del II
Epic melodic folky black metal. Sequal to the 1998 album. The band is pretty much one guy and he really has this thing down. Good melodic stuff, heavy parts, epic stuff, folk stuff, all working together.
Wrong One To Fuck With
Well, the name of the album says it all, these guys do brutal death metal right and this album is no exception. I didn’t realize this was the first album in about 5 years. time flies! Great technicality, super fast and brutal. great stuff!
Slime And Punishment
Nuclear Blast USA
Fast and raw thrash, but maybe with a bit more of a punk edge to it. Songs are fast and furious and quick & to the point.
The Place I Feel Safest
Kind of a djenty heavier metalcore. Math metal type stuff. Melodic in parts, full of low end too.
Days of Jupiter
Melodic metal, a bit proggy, kind of catchy cool stuff, a bit laid back, maybe commercial-ish (relative to the Mosh Pit of course — when I mean this, I am opining that it should fit on commercial hard rock radio greatly!)
Mutilated And Assimilated
Century Media Records
second album since their reforming… first in 4 years… great brutal death metal. Great grooves, cookie monster vox… glad they’re back.
Gonna be lazy and copy/paste from the label’s bio, because it says it all! Here: “Featuring Brann Dailor (Mastodon), Core Atoms (Zruda) and Raheem Amlani (Withered), Arcadea is trio of galactic space warriors, whose prophetic songs tell the stories of space travel and celestial battles 5 billion years in the future where galaxies have collided, leaving catastrophic disorder in its wake as war is waged among gods and planets.” So there’s only keyboards and drums and vocals. Quite different… kind of a Mastodon without guitars, really. Very space sounding with the keyboards. Interesting
A heavy edge to this melodic hard rock kind of metal type stuff. just like the one above with the heavier edge, but should fit well in commercial radio. Cool stuff though.
Doomy death metal, a little of that melodic doom type stuff, and then melodic type stuff, and the heavy parts are pretty good and brutal. (long songs) seems to be in spanish
Everlasting Spew Records
A bit death metal, and metal/brutal core type stuff. Good stuff, no fucking around.
Kingdom of the Damned
Dooomy brutal blackened deaath metal.
Atmospheric ambient alternative rock.
HOUR OF 13
Salt The Dead: The Rare And Unreleased (CD, DLP)
An old school doomy metal throwback… a bit like a stoner metal sabbath/Trouble type thing
Of the Depths… (CD, LP, TAPE)
Good old classic death metal. A tiny bit of a grindy feel along with maaaaaybe a little blackened death. Good stuff.
THE DELUSION MACHINE
Blackened death metal, good production, good catchy hooks and brutal with melody.
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Classic stoner-ish rock with female vox. Great stuff, just maybe not for the mosh pit.
Dark Descent Records
Blackened doomy death metal. Dark and evil sounding.
I’d have to say this falls into the extreme thrash category, bordering into some death metal. Reminds me a little of Kreator.
BAD KARMA (U.S.)
Death Has No Calling Card (CD)
This is some good stuff too, a raw-ish heavy thrash, a full low end, raw vox. Cool stuff.
LES CHANTS DU HASARD
Les Chants du Hasard
I, Voidhanger Records
Doomy orchestral post-metal. Creepy and dark, but maybe just a little too post-metal out there for me.
Monte da Lua
Lo-fi black metal. NEXT.
Pitch Black Records
Female fronted hard rockin’ metal type stuff. a bit goth-like, maybe a bit like a more clean sung/no guy vox Lacuna Coil.
PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY
LABEL: WORM HOLE DEATH
Doomy alt rock. meh.
Black Market Metal Label
Diablery is some good classic black metal type stuff. Shadowcraft is some good melodic blackened death metal. Kind of cool to finaly get a “split” EP that has good stuff from both bands.
Black Market Metal Label
Great brutal death metal with maybe a tiny bit of a blackened death thing going on.
Piss On Everything
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
A raw metal core grindy punk thrash kitchen sink. Decent stuff, just a little of everything on the raw side of metal.
Kind of a classic metal, melodic metal. Clean vox, a bit of a 90’s AOR vocal sound, otherwise, just classic hard rocking stuff.
Dark Descent Records
Grooving brutal death metal. big time cookie monster gurgles, and phat heavy brutal grooves
Raw classic blackened black metal…. yeah, blackended black! It’s a tiny bit thrashy, but kind of low-fi. Not tooo awfully low-fi that it’s ruined, you can tell there’s some good classic evil black metal stuff going on.
Burn River Burn
A good classic stoner metal thing! Great grooves or just some good meaty hard rock.
Wrongs on a Right Turn
This is a bit like that Burn River Burn above… great grooves, a little stoner metal ish. Catchy hard rock with a little edge.
DAWN OF MORGANA
Melodic death metal with some operratic female vox to go back with the death metal growls. Kind of an epic metal feeling musically too.
Here Lies the Truth
Kind of a melodic death but more on the melodic side, a bit of an industrial electronic
As A Season Bloom
Melodic kind of almost acoustic rock. meh.
The Father of Serpents
Age of Damnation
Label: Satanath Records
Mostly death metal, with some melodic grooves, but then getting into a bit of a gothy doom thing too.
Cloud Rat / Disrotted
Halo of Flies / Dry Cough Records
Both of these are post-metal doomy stuff with some black and death metal. Just two tracks, and each over 18 mins long. ugh.
