King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Murder Of The Universe
Kind of a folk metal, experimental rock thing, maybe a little stoner metal feel too. It’s a bit out there, but kind of catchy, and the track listing is kind of messed up, a lot of really short tracks and probably part of a story or something I’m too lazy to really dig in to.

New Damage
A sort of nu metal thing crossing a guy from Fear Factory, Biohazard and Cypress Hill. Good stuff, a good hardcore feel with a bit of a rap metal thing… good catchy stuff.

The Interbeing
Among The Amorphous
Long Branch
Proggy metalcore type stuff… a little djent

Well, you know what you get here, techno-electronic stuff with a bit of guitar… i’ll pass to Something Wonderful.

Double Crush Syndrome
Die For Rock ‘N’ Roll
Metalville Records
This is a basic hard rock with some fun party type lyrics. S

Billion Dollar Babies
The Game (EP)
Metalville Records
Catchy gothy electronicified metal. A bit like a Zombie/manson feeling with that great catchy sound.

The Acacia Strain
Rise Records
Kind of a little doomy dark feeling on this metal/brutalcore type thing. Heavy and catchy in parts, a little dark but technical too.

Unparalleled Universe
Nuclear Blast USA
Crazy fast and technical brutal death metal. This is just a single so far, but I’m sure the rest is just as sick.

Pest Production
Stars off kind of atmospheric and doomy black metal, but then really just getting into some melodic proggy black metal with some death metal type stuff. A mixture of vocal styles… but overall, classic black metal (but with good production)

BLackened death metal… oh maybe melodic blackened death metal? Yeah. Good stuff. Mostly black metal though!

Seance Records
More decent black metal, again, this one is melodic-ish too, dark and evil.

The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh
Melodic death metal, technical and proggy, cool grooves, the heavy stuff is kind of a blackened thrash. Great stuff!

Unstinted, Delirious, Convulsive Oaths
Signal Rex / De Essentia Diaboli
Two long songs of classic black metal.

Tuesday The Sky
Well, you never know what you’ll get with INsideOut records… mostly prog rock type stuff… this one is ambient background sounds with some female singing… yeah, no.

Just this band name had me thinking it’d be a blackend death metal with a gritty edge to it, and, yup, it’s all there in the name! A good groove, not totally brutal and not totally evil. Basically a more gritty melodic death metal. (3 songs)

Towards The Ultimate Extinction
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Must be the week of blackened death metal! This has a little bit of a thrash undertone… more shouty harsh vox and a raw death metal thing going on, but definitely a black metal attitude.

Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Continuing our pattern this week… more blackened death metal… this time with more melodic death type stuff happening. Good guitar solo type stuff. growly vox

Pig’s Blood
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Good old classic brutal death metal. A bit raw, maybe a little grindy, but full on brutal!

Summon (Portugal)
Aesthetics of Demise TAPE
Iron Bonehead
Creepy classic old school black metal. echoey shrieky vox, ok production (not awful) and a bit atmospheric.

Cryptic Wanderings
You Shall Be There…
Forever Plagued
And here we have a good wall of sound black metal type thing. Evil, fast and a bit brutal too.

Pestilential Rites of Infernal Fornication CD/LP/TAPE
Iron Bonehead / Parasitic / Vault of Dried Bones
Kind of a black/death metal here… more on the raw thrash side of things. A bit fast and grindy too

Iron Speed (TAPE)
Shadow Kingdom
30 June 2017
A kind of throwback old school thrash/punked up thing. Clean-ish shouted kind of punk style. Catchy speedy riffs, almost like a speed stoner metal feeling.

Incantations From the Abyss
Invictus Productions
Death metal meets black metal again. A bit raw production-wise. An evil dark feeling

Space Muffin “Rusty Edition”
Argonauta Records
Stoner rock with some spacey atmospheric stuff going on… but good big grooves and a cool throwback sound.

Scars of Grace
From The Ashes
Self Released
Classic metal, just good old regular “metal” clean vox, good melodic stuff, big singy voice too.

Burned, Barren, Bloodstained
Self Released
Brutal technical death metal… maybe a little on the brutal thrash side of things. Definitely headbanging material. Good stuff.

Burning Hatred
Label: Morbid Skull Records (El Salvador)
This is death metal, good basic stuff, big meaty grooves, freight train drumming.

For The Violent
Self Released
A bit of a death core death metal, with some kind of neat groove breaks, which I guess would have to make it a little technical. Pretty much heavy but with cool other stuff and different experimental type stuff going on.

Sinister Decálogo
Self Released
Melodic death metal from Colombia. Catchy riffs, a little thrashy and good cool stuff.

Album: A Mother Named Death
Label: Solitude Productions
Melodic doomy death metal. Not too bad, just a bit depressing in parts… doom right?

Album: Self-titled
Self Released
Kind of doom, but a bit like, um, Epic sounding. Clean vox. 4 long songs.

Label: Symbol of Domination Prod.
From Argentina, a bit thrashy, lots of groove and a bit proggy and technical too. Cool stuff.

Beyond the Silence of These Years
Self Released
Female fronted hard rock/metal. Kind of melodic death, but metalcore type stuff. Okay, it’s metalcore/mallcore-ish.

The Dry Tide
Self Released (Online Metal Promo)
Driving hard rocking stuff, probably a bit of a stoner metal feeling… a little grungy in the guitar… decent stuff.

Album: New World Planetarium
Self Released
One track of Atmospheric Black Metal… a bit drony in parts, some cool melodic stuff too… i dunno.

Architecture Of Future Tribes
Self Released
Black metal, a bit melodic and electronic too.

Ex Eye
Ex Eye
Some out there music here… saxophones and Atmospheric post metal doom type stuff

Genocides in the Name of God

Proggy metal instrumental stuff. Great stuff, and yeah, even the parts with the sax.

Modern Day Outlaw
Day Of Reckoning
