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
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
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
German multi instrumentalist… this is mostly an AOR/hard rock type thing. Melodic and just classic rock-ish
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
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.
BUILT TO FOLLOW
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
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.
A little Rammstein feel, with an industrial German thing… Good metal distortion, a bit of a doomy industrial thing too
The Draining Of Vergelmer
Classic metal from the former Sabaton guitarist. There’s a little bit of cheese here too, but overall, just good ol “metal”
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
Kind of a technical blackened death/thrashy thing. Abrasive vox, great stuff.
Plagues and Ancient Rites LP
Brutal blackened death metal, leaning more on the death metal side
Hordanes Land (re-issue)
Reissue of their 1993 debut! Old school black metal with some viking grooves
Visitation CD/12″ MLP
Old school black metal, production is echoey atmospheric, blast beats, black metal screaming… all that…
Ghosts of the Timeless Void
Melodic death in parts, and mostly screamy black metal, pretty good grooves too… while keeping it heavy good stuff.
Ritual Miasma CD
Here we have some melodic black metal. Good evil/cold sound, yet a little doomy and grooving. Brutal cookie monster vox.
A little noise, a little industrial, kind of a metalcore too
“AI Freaks Me Out”
Self Released (Asher)
Modern hard rock, classic rock type stuff with clean male vox
Brutal and catchy fast death metal. Like, extreme thrashy death metal with technicality too. Good stuff.
Nuclear Strike Warning
Good old brutal death metal. No fucking around
House Of Possession
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
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
An old doom sounding thing, a 70’s haunting vibe, sometimes getting into a really chilled out atmospheric melodic thing.
Abysmal Secrets of Unknown
One woman progressive/technical death metal project with guest vocalists. Guitar work is a bit like old Death. cool stuff
Sgt. Beesus And The Lonely Ass Gangbang
A raw kind of stoner punk, a bit doomy too
Kiss The Gun (single)
Bluesy doomy metal
A bit of a middle eastern atmospheric sound, post rock? Post something… not metal.
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
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.
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Lo-fi sludgey noise black metal. meh.
Atmospheric and sludgey blackened metal, a bit of a stoner doomy crust going on too
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.
Label: Arachnophobia Records
Kind of black metal, a little folk too. Melodic black metal with some harsh vox, longer songs, a kind of dark feeling
Season of Mist
Acoustic rock stuff, not sure what’s going on here! hah
