Lizzy Borden
My Midnight Things
Metal Blade Records
First album in 11 years! I can’t say I know much of the back catalog of this band. It’s melodic hard rockin’ type stuff, a little bit of that glam feel, but more of a melodic metal classic metal type thing.

DEVILSTAR
BEYOND THE REALMS OF DEATH
M-THEORY AUDIO
Just the first single, a Priest cover by some actual former members of Judas Priest. It’s a Project by Paul Crook to get some names together. This track features KK Downing, Ripper Owens, Les Binks

Ghost
Prequelle
Concord/Loma Vista
Finally have the full album… It’s got that same catchy ghost sound, the Sabbath/Blue Oyster Cult type mix, but a heavier and catchier feel. That’s what this album as… a bit more catchy chunk.

Hatchet
Dying To Exist
Combat/EMP Label Group
These guys are back with another great throwback to classic thrash, fast and furious, catchy and heavy… all that good stuff.

Fargo
Constellation
SPV
You got some just straight up rock, a catchy funky sound, but overall mostly a classic rock type thing.

Gruesome
Twisted Prayers
Relapse
Oooh yeah, this is that band that sounds just like Death! Yup… a 2nd album now with a perfect homage to one of the greatest metal bands ever. Again, if you liked Death, you’ll love this band and this new album too.

Hulkoff
Beast Mode (Single)
Independent
Kind of an industrialized catchy death metal. Just one track so far, but I like it.

Artist: Yob
Album: “Our Raw Heart”
Label: Relapse
Going to be a tough sell on me to like Yob. Just not in my genre of liking. But big sludgey riffs on one track, the other is some melodic post-rock type stuff that goes on for almost 15 mins.

Jyotisavedanga
Thermogravimetry Warp Continuum LP
Larval Productions
Big wall of sludgey noise, but there’s actually something dishinguishable in one of the layers… still to much noise and not my thing

Wømb
Taciturn
Purodium Rekords
Good classic evil/cold black metal. Some catchy groove going on in parts

Woorms / A Hanging
Woorms / A Hanging 7″ Split
Independent
Woorms is a longer more instrumental with a little vox… bit sludgey doom and some screamy vox with a little groove to go with it. A Hanging is 3 punked up thrash fast and quick tracks all clocking in under 1:30 each… good stuff.

Caveman Cult
Supremacia Primordial 10″ EP
Larval Productions
Fast, brutal, furious, frenetic, heavy, a bit sludgey and a wall of brutal metal sound… and only 4 quick tracks!

Crurifragium (U.S.)
Black Seed of Bestiality LP
Larval Productions
Gurgly death metal. Not great production

Ossuary Insane
Decimation of the Flesh LP
Blood Harvest
A sort of black metal, thrash, exteme metal, death metal. just some heavy dark good stuff.

Deathwards
Towards Death
Invictus Productions
Fast and heavy extreme thrash poking into death metal, a little groove, good stuff!

HAUNTED
DAYBURNER
Twin Earth Records
Doomy stoner metal, seems like female vox.

EXMORTUS
The Sound Of Steel
Prosthetic Records
8 June 2018
Hard to go wrong with this band’s formula of old school thrash turned modern and probably heavier and more technical and catchy as hell. Great stuff!!!

Taphos
Come Ethereal Somberness CD/LP
Blood Harvest
Brutal blackended death metal, great grooves, a harsh black metal feel while keeping a brutal deathmetal groove.

Torii
A Judgement Divine
Self-Release
A pretty doomy black metal, vox are more of a growl than a death metal shriek, but the music is cold, dark, mostly depressing and doomy sometimes getting heavier and brutal.

Kanseil
Fulìsche
Rockshots Music
This is some good melodic death with a bit of a Viking metal thing and a pinch of some folk metal.

POSTHUMAN ABOMINATION
TRANSCENDING EMBODIMENT
LABEL: COMATOSE MUSIC
With a band name like this, you expect something brutal and heavy, and well, this is what it is… fast, and brutal brutal brutal death metal! Great stuff!

CHARLOTTE IN CAGE
Times Of Anger
Sliptrick Records
All girl hard rock from Italy. The first couple tracks were just some kind of punky just rock type stuff, getting to track three, some big growly stuff, more pissed off, then settling back into some more clean vox. This whole thing is a decent mix of all female rock/metal.

Band: Winterblut
Album: Seid furchtbar und zerstöret Euch
Label: Nihilistische KlangKunst
Doomy post-black metal. kind of a “far away” production

Band: The Last Seed
Album: Hellboy
Label: Nihilistische KlangKunst
More of a traditional black metal, good melodic stuff, typical cold guitars/harsh vox.

Band: EUFORY
Album: Higher And Higher
Label: Sliptrick records
Some straight up proggy power metal, nothing new or special, but some good tracks, keyboards, great clean vox, a full wall of heavy metal too.

The Hirvi
Old School Killspree
Label: Inverse Records
We have some classic thrash/melodic death type stuff. It’s got that catchy grooving clasic thrash thing but the vox are a bit heavier. Cool stuff.

FADING BLISS
Journeys in Solitude
MALPERMESITA Records
Kind of post-metal, ambient, atmoshpheric doom? melodic, dark, depressing.

Meka Nism
The War Inside (EP)
Self-Release
Female fronted melodic death, clean and harsh vox, good mix of chugga chugga death metal riffage and some gothy fe-metal.

Lost Division
Wish You Were Dead
Record label: Inverse Records
Some female fronted hard rock/metal. Kind of a crunchy guitar, clean female vox, but with a friendly attitude? Yeah, it’s nice good vox, then the heavier side has a bit more attitude. Pretty straightforward hard rock

Release: ATLAS (FIN)
The Catalyst
Record label: Inverse Records
A blackened metalcore type thing. Djenty, wall of sound, screamy, heavy, brutal-ish, but a colder feel.

DECAYED
Of Fire And Evil
Lusitanian Music
Blackened death/thrash… pretty standard, but decent/good stuff.

Dallian
Automata
Self Released
Symphonic proggy melodic death. It’s got the epic prog stuff, brutal death metal… great stuff.
