Symphonic power metal… first track has a jazzy swing thing going on…. second single track is more of a traditional symphonic fe-metal power metal thing.

Suicide Silence
Become The Hunter
Nuclear Blast Entertainment
Three songs received so far… and if you had to compare this to their last album from 2017 (that “experimental” thing)… this is more like the old Suicide Silence… brutal, heavy, death/metalcore stuff and no indication of that “new” sound from the last album… perhaps they got it out of their system? good stuff!

Ihsahn
Telemark
Spinefarm Records
first single from a new EP… starts off kind of a good melodic prog metal with a bit of a black metal undertone, getting to be a bit melodic too. cool stuff!

Seven Spires
Emerald Seas
Frontiers Music SRL.
Kind of a classic fe-metal thing, but track two of the sampler started and it’s kind of a harsh black metal style vox… and more into a melodic death thing with a bit of an epic
