Octopus
Supernatural Alliance
Rise Above
Catchy bluesy stoner metal (more of a hard rock thing). Big catchy riffs and grooves.

Zeke
Hellbender
Relapse
Punked up thrashy metal… first album in 14 years, most tracks clock in at under 90 seconds… no messing around.

The Sword
Used Future
Razor & Tie
Classic meaty and riffy stoner metal, great stuff once again

The Amorettes
Born to Break
SPV
Southern bluesy hard rock with female vox.

Ihsahn
“Arcana Imperii” [Single]
Candlelight
More of a prog metal/hard rock than anything… Ihsahn has really “progressed” in his tenure as a solo artist… almost a bit Opeth-like going to some old school prog while still being heavy too

Primordial
Exile Amongst the Ruins
Metal Blade Records
Melodic, doomy, with a little bit of a black metal underlayment

Mindfucker
Napalm Records
Classic Monster Magnet stoner fried metal.

Armor Of Light
Nuclear Blast USA
Nice heavy power metal from the band formerly known as Riot.

Light The Torch
Rivival
Nuclear Blast Entertainment
This is that band that used to be that other band with that one singer that was in that one other band. (Devil You Know with Howard Jones formerly of Killswitch Engage) It’s just a modern metal, fairly accessible and solid-rock ish.

Snake Eyes Seven
Medicine Man
High Voltage Music
Classic hard rock/metal type stuff, possibly heading into a little power metal.

FOUL BODY AUTOPSY

One man band with an old school death metal groove with a bit of a grungy/doomy/sludgey black metal thing going on too.

GRANDIOSE MALICE
The Eternal Infernal (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
I’d have to call this an edgier melodic death more on the death metal side of things. This is a postumous release as the guitarist died before release.

Doomy blackened death metal. 4 long songs.

W.T.C.Productions
Melodic blackeneed death with some doomy stuff to keep it grounded.

Raw, kind of punky, hardcore, experimental, death metal, black metal-ish. On their “about” page on facebook: “We are a politically correct Trans LGBTQMN band who are against Black Metal.”

PRECARIA – DEATHSPIRAL OF INHERITED SUFFERING – DOMINUS IRA
Metamorphosphoros
I, Voidhanger Records
Precaria has some old school full on blast beat black metal, a bit lo-fi. DoIS is pretty much some classic death metal with a pinch of black metal. Dominus Ira is classic black meta.

I, Voidhanger Records
This sounds like some jazz flute type stuff.

SPECTRAL LORE / MARE COGNITUM
Sol (Remastered Edition)
I, Voidhanger Records
Both bands on this 3 song EP are atmospheric post metal doom stuff. meh.

DEE CALHOUN
Go to the Devil

Acoustic /Southern Blues maybe it could be Doom? Vox get a little “heavy” but, this ain’t metal!

Decent blackened death metal. Cold black metal sound but more of a brutal death metal thing underlying.
