DEATHWHITE
For a Black Tomorrow
Season of Mist
This is some melodic metal, a little doomy feel, dark feel, like a Katatonia or Antethema type thing. Some decent grooves, but just sort of an even tone/tempo, not getting really heavy or too light. Good melodic stuff

Hyborian
Vol. 1
Season of Mist
Heavy stoner type stuff, along lines of a Mastodon or High on Fire. Not quite as catchy, but a good solid crunchy groove

We Sell The Dead
Heaven Doesn’t Want You And Hell Is Full
earMUSIC
This has a guitarist from In Flames and Apollo (vox from Firewind/Spiritual Beggars) and a guy that used to be in HIM… A melodic grooving hard rock with the occasional chunckiness

Ignore The Sign
A Line To Cross
SPV
German multi instrumentalist… this is mostly an AOR/hard rock type thing. Melodic and just classic rock-ish

DIMMU BORGIR
Interdimensional Summit
Nuclear Blast
decent song, a lot of keyboard/orchestral sounds…. still has the heaviness and stuff that makes Dimmu, Dimmu… however, I think they overuse the synthy orchestra/keyboard a bit toooo much. Let’s see when the full album comes out.

Iron Reagan & Gatecreeper
Split
Relapse
Iron Reagan is raw, in your face, kind of a thrashy punk with no messing around. (5 tracks). Gatecreeper finishes out the split ep with 3 tracks of brutal grindy death metal with huge meaty grooves too.

DRAMASCREAM
BUILT TO FOLLOW
DRAMASCREAM MUSIC
Melodic female fronted hard rock… Kind of a commercial-ish aor solid rock type thing. Good grooves and solid production… might just be a little too “accessible” for us

Michael Schenker Fest
Resurrection
Nuclear Blast USA
Mr Schenker has had quite the career and it’s far from over. He’s touring with three of his old solo project singers, and an album to go along with it..> Great classic metal shredding and a power metal/classic metal thing going on musically.

Megaherz
Komet
Napalm Records
A little Rammstein feel, with an industrial German thing… Good metal distortion, a bit of a doomy industrial thing too

Thobbe Engund
The Draining Of Vergelmer
Metalville Records
Classic metal from the former Sabaton guitarist. There’s a little bit of cheese here too, but overall, just good ol “metal”

Galvanizer
Sanguine Vigil
Everlasting Spew Records
A grindy death metal. Production is a little raw, but you get the idea no problem about this brutal stuff.

Purest of Pain
Solipsis
Self-Release
Kind of a technical blackened death/thrashy thing. Abrasive vox, great stuff.

Disembowel (Chile)
Plagues and Ancient Rites LP

Brutal blackened death metal, leaning more on the death metal side

Enslaved
Hordanes Land (re-issue)

HAR
Visitation CD/12″ MLP
Blood Harvest
Old school black metal, production is echoey atmospheric, blast beats, black metal screaming… all that…

ANCST
Ghosts of the Timeless Void
lifeforce
Melodic death in parts, and mostly screamy black metal, pretty good grooves too… while keeping it heavy good stuff.

Ziggurat (Israel)
Ritual Miasma CD
Blood Harvest
Here we have some melodic black metal. Good evil/cold sound, yet a little doomy and grooving. Brutal cookie monster vox.

INFECTION CODE

A little noise, a little industrial, kind of a metalcore too

DOUBLE EXPERIENCE
“AI Freaks Me Out”
Self Released (Asher)
Modern hard rock, classic rock type stuff with clean male vox

TRIVERSE MASSACRE

Brutal and catchy fast death metal. Like, extreme thrashy death metal with technicality too. Good stuff.

Infiltration
Nuclear Strike Warning
Wormholedeath
Good old brutal death metal. No fucking around

SHAKMA
House Of Possession
Duplicate Records
a sort of technical thrash thing going on. Fast and grooving, vox are a bit more “extreme” but not shrieky or growly, just aggressive thrashy

Band: GHOUL CULT
Album: Ghoul Cult
Label: Duplicate Records
I like this… they call it “Skullbanging Deathrash” It’s got a raw thrashy extreme thing going on. Kind of a blackned grooving thrash metal.

Death on Arrival
Death is coming
Self Released
Kind of a raw thrashy death metal, basic production

Band: MAZE OF FEELINGS
Album: Maze Of Feelings
Label: Bad Mood Man Music
I guess this would fall into a doomy melodic death metal. Clean-ish vox mixed with growls, a mix of styles going from doom, black, death, prog metal… all thrown together working well…

The Osiris Club
The Wine-Dark Sea
Indie Recordings
An old doom sounding thing, a 70’s haunting vibe, sometimes getting into a really chilled out atmospheric melodic thing.

Aynsophar
Abysmal Secrets of Unknown
Neverheard Distro
One woman progressive/technical death metal project with guest vocalists. Guitar work is a bit like old Death. cool stuff

A raw kind of stoner punk, a bit doomy too

Bluesy doomy metal

Malditos
II
Svart Records
A bit of a middle eastern atmospheric sound, post rock? Post something… not metal.

Gozu
Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat – radio single
Metal Blade Records / Blacklight Media Records
Fuzzy grungy stoner metal with a bit of a 70’s stoner vibe, and a bit of a The Cult sound vocally. Good catchy groove too.

Sleep In Heads
On The Air
Noizr
Female fronted hard rock, a bit prog, a big goth, a lighter Lacuna Coil style (vox-wise). Music, it’s kind of a prog rock bordering on metal in parts.

Saltas
Currents TAPE

Lo-fi sludgey noise black metal. meh.

Ilsa
Corpse Fortress
Relapse
Atmospheric and sludgey blackened metal, a bit of a stoner doomy crust going on too

Band: Xenoblight

Female fronted extreme metal, a little thrashy and melodic death-ish, vox are a little in the black metal style… extreme and harsh, music gets into some brutal tech death too.

Band: Jarun
