MIKE LEPOND’S SILENT ASSASSINS
Pawn and Prophecy – DOWNLOAD
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
We got us some catchy proggy power metal. Big time vox and just good solid metal.
Black Veil Brides
Modern hard rockin’ “accessible” metal. Catchy songs, good driving beats, melodic guitars, but more of a commercial sound/feel.
Classic metal with a thrashy edge and big powerful clean sung vox.
Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed
Season of Mist
A doomy death metal, dark sound, melodic in parts… longer songs.
Order of Torment
A good meaty old school death metal
Hustlin’ Hate (Single)
Kind of a melodic death meets say a more extreme Rob Zombie
Rise To Glory
New album of solid gritty classic thrash metal from one of Japan’s most famous thrash metal bands
Re-Idolized (The Soundtrack To THe Crimson Idol)
A fully re-recorded version of The Crimson Idol. while I just have a single right now, it sounds great!
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
An epic 3 album symphonic rock opera, mostly rock opera-like, operattic vox, not a whole lot of real metal going on.
We Will All Be Gone
Blacklight Media / Metal Blade Records
These guys just got announced on the tour opening for Protest the Hero… and there’s a little bit of a similarity in their sound… it’s kind of a modern metalcore, but this is a bit more prog, with high octave male vox. Not quite as heavy as Protest the Hero, but a similar vein
Metal Blade Records
A power metal with a little tiny bit of a goth and doom. Good stuff.
Full on old school black metal. Brutal, cold, evil and with good production!
Label: Ashen Dominion
Old school brutal blast beatin’ black metal. Dark, cold, evil… and yeah! good production.
Artist: LORD OF PAGATHORN
Title: Daimono Philia
Label: WOODCUT RECORDS
Some black metal here, a bit more melodic groove going on than a typical black metal thing
I’ll say this is heavy thrash, almost blackened… but still “normal” and catchy enough to be “just thrash” good technicality and fast n heavy
Grooving brutal blackened death metal.
Long Distance Calling
Some of the best classic prog rock/hard rock instrumetal stuff you’ll get. Not all on fire metal here, but great grooves and ticking all the prog rock boxes on this one.
“The Awakening” Album Sampler
Wormholedeath / The Orchard / Aural Music Group
Female fronted “Femetal” Clean vox, basic classic “metal”
Life is Your Labyrinth
Classic metal with a pinch of thrash…
Matkalla Kohti Hautaa
Record label: Inverse Records
Most of the time you’re not sure what you’ll get with these Finnish bands… in this case, it’s like brutal monster thrash! Coookie monster vox with super fast thrash going on. COol stuff.
Harakiri – single (WAV)
Metal Blade Records
Album out in March… this is some kind of melodic extreme groove… a tiny grind, a little crust, thrash, metalcore too.
