Live show(s) from their shows in Oslo and Wacken a few years ago… finally seeing the light of day.  Sounds great and to have a full orchestra and choir really brings out the epic-ness that this band can do… good clean production.  This will have to tide us over til their new stuff comes out!

New Stuff This Week… 4/24/17

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 4/24/17
Apr 242017
 

He Is Legend
Few
Spinefarm
Melodic hard rock, a bit of a prog thing.  Some cool melodic proggy stuff, not quite like, proper metal, but a good hard rocking thing.

Ides of Gemini
Women
Rise Above
Melodic post metal doom type stuff… old school doom feeling with female vox.

Beastmaker
“Nature Of The Damned” [Single]
Rise Above
A little bit of a sabbathy sounding doom

Cirith Ungol
King of the Dead (Ultimate Edition)
Metal Blade Records
This is a reissue/packaging of their 1974 album.   Full remastering and some live tracks from their show last October.  This is one of those bands that’s under my radar and probably under a lot of radars… A good solid classic metal/doomy/stoner type sound… maybe a bit classic prog too.

HELSOTT
“THE HEALER”
M-THEORY AUDIO
Well this is something new… kind of a mix of folk metal, prog, death, thrash, symphonic and some good ol hard rock.  Lots of cool stuff all mixed together to really be under a flag of proggy death metal.  Great stuff!

Nine Shrines
Misery
Mascot Label Group
A sort of a modern metalcore solid rock

Hate
Tremendum
Napalm Records
Brutal melodic death metal.  Great stuff… they seem to always put out some heavy brutal stuff that’s also so catchy and dark.  About as close to Behemoth as you can get, right?

Ayreon
The Source
Mascot Label Group
I know a little of the history on this group… so I know that this album will probably take a lot to digest… a proggy metal opera type thing.  First album in 4 years, and features a whole slew of guest vocalists (James LaBrie, Tommy Karevik, Tommy Rogers, Simone Simons, Nils K. Rue, Tobias Sammet, Hansi Kürsch, Mike Mills, Russell Allen, Michael Eriksen, Floor Jansen) The whole thing is Arjen Lucassen’s brainchild and he plays most of the the instruments with a few guests.

Ungraved Apparition
PULSE_O
GrimmDistribution
Doomy melodic death.  Good dark evil feeling, but also some nice melodic and heavy Opeth-y type stuff.

Cry Excess
Vision
Label:  Bleeding Nose Records
Kind of a djenty metalcore… maybe a little industrial too.  Just a pinch of some techy/prog mathcore.

Ruin (US)
Drown in Blood
Memento Mori
A doomy chugga chugga blackened death metal.  Sludgy and maybe even a touch grindy.  Brutal if anything… and the production is a little raw.

Morbid Flesh
Rites of the Mangled
Unholy Prophecies
Some classic blackend death metal.  Dark and evil, real cookie monster growly stuff, a grindy death metal groove musically.  Great brutal stuff.

Morte Incandescente
Illum Adora
Remnants of a Flaming Past
War Arts
Doomy raw old school black metal. Not so great production…

Soulrot (Chile)
Nameless Hideous Manifestations
Memento Mori
Dark blackened death metal, kind of a good deep groove, guttural cookie monster growls.  Cool stuff!

DØDSRITUAL
Under Sort Sol
Black Market Metal Label
Mostly a melodic black metal, a bit cold/evil-ish, but some good ol melodic death metal passages.

Return To Void
Return To Void
Record label: Inverse Records
Classic hard rock leaning towards prog metal.  A solid hard rocking edge, maybe just some good ol classic metal.  good catchy guitar work, solid clean vox.

Enisum
Seasons of Desolation
Avantgarde Music
Kind of a black metal with a doomy dark depressing feel.  It’s fast and classic black metal with cold guitars, blast beats and shrieky growly vox.  Production is good though.

Aborted Fetus
The Art of Violent Torture
Comatose Music
Brutal death metal, meaty riffs, brutal deep vox, a big catchy groove too…all while staying totally brutal.

Lonely Robot
The Big Dream
InsideOut
As with most stuff on this label, we’re going to some good old Prog Rock here…. along the lines of a Porcupine Tree

ALL BUT ONE
Square One
Lifeforce
modern metal/metalcore.  Kind of catchy, a good heavy edge, but it’s got that mallcore-ish feeling…  clean vox aren’t whiney or autotuned, just very polished

NO GOOD ADVICE
From the Outer Space
Argonauta Records
Stoner metal, a bit of a goth feel, cool riffs.  clean vox

Barathrum
Fanatiko
Saturnal
Blackened Death metal, maybe a little melodic. Brutal, driving evil dark sound, but some sort of catchy groove that has you headbanging.

Cult of Eibon
Lycan Twilight Sorcery CD/12″ MLP
Iron Bonehead
Kind of classic black metal, but with a bit more polished production and more of a melodic thing… evil shrieky vox and some good growls.

ELEPHANT BELL
Gates of Dawn
Argonauta Records
Yeah, it’s stoner rock… a good hard rocking classic rock feel too.  Catchy and cool stuff here.

Sarcasm
Within the Sphere of Ethereal Minds
Dark Descent Records
Melodic death metal, more on the doom side, some heavier stuff… maybe blackened death on the heavier side and doomy melodic death in parts.  Overall, a good full dark metal sound.  I’d have to compare a little to and older deathy Opeth?

Chugger
“Grinder” [Single]
Good meaty melodic death metal, full heavy sound, maybe a little Amon Amarth-ish.

Archivist
Construct
Halo of Flies
Doomy black metal.  shrieky vox, doomy black metal… a bit melodic and down tempo, depressing

Serpentshrine
Besetting the Altar
Unsigned
BLackened death metal, a good melodic evil yet catchy and brutal sound.  Reminded me of maybe like a Dimmu Borgir without all of the extra symphonic stuff. Just classic blackened metal.

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 4/17/17
Apr 142017
 

Don Jamieson
Communication Breakdown
Metal Blade Records
New comedy album, rude, crude and of course funny!

Tombs
Cold – radio single
Metal Blade Records
Catchy and grooving death metal.  Melodic and headbanging… can’t wait for more… brutal too!

Slaughter to Prevail
King (Single)
Sumerian
Brutal and extra brutal-core type stuff.  It’s Sumerian, so you kind of know about the “sumerian-core” sound… and this kind of has it, technical, brutal and heavy as shit.  Good stuff.

Fates Warning
Awaken the Guardian Live
Metal Blade
Two shows recorded live with John Arch and the original lineup.  and it sounds great

Between the Buried and Me
Coma Ecliptic: Live
Metal Blade Records
The more I listen to this band the more I like them… I think it’s because they get more and more proggy… well, here’s a live album proving they can pull it all off live… sounds great!

Igorrr
ieuD – radio single
Metal Blade Records
Well, this was unique (a single).  some  electronic dubstep type stuff with operattic female vox, then combining it all into some metalcore type stuff… different and kind of cool

Shores Of Null
Black Drapes For Tomorrow
Candlelight
A bit melodic and doomy, a little blackened doom.  Clean vox, and

Uneven Structure
La Partition
Long Branch
Kind of a toned down prog metal type thing.  Similar to BTBAM actually, melodic clean stuff, growly stuff, and techy prog too.

Ancient Ascendant
Raise The Torch
Candlelight
Melodic death metal, more along the lines of the heavier style of opeth… good chilled out melodic passages and brutal heavy vox in the death metal parts.  Great stuff.

Ides of Gemini
“Heroine’s Descent” [Single]
Rise Above
Kind of a melodic blackened post metal-doom

Witherfall
Noctumes In Requiems
Independent
We first started playing this back in February when it came out… now is when the radio promoters are throwing it out there, so here’s the review again…
Last recorded release of our friend Adam Sagan.  The samples that were early released sounded great.  Technical proggy melodic death metal… but the vox I guess don’t really fit the death metal… so musically it’s “melodic death-ish” but really it’s something more along the lines of a Nevermore.  great stuff! Catchy, heavy and melodic too!

While She Sleeps
You Are We
SharpTone Records
Modern metalcore type stuff… maybe a little melodic death thing going on, but a little bit of that moderm metalcore clean stuff going on too.

Mammoth Mammoth
Mount The Mountain
Napalm Records
This name was always appropriate for their sound. a bit mammothy stoner metal thing… Big grooves, catchy riffs and all around cool stuff.  This is my kind of stoner metal, heavy, and fast paced with great energy.

Night Demon
Darkness Remains
Century Media Records
Classic old school sounding thrashy, or just classic “metal”  great riffs and a throwback feel

Synn
Venom
Inebriated Music
Female fronted standard metal type stuff. Good grooves and guitar solos a little bit more on the solid rock side of things.  Some abrasive vox in parts, but overall clean vox stuff.

Sangue
Sangue 7″ EP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Scary doomy black metal.  Just a couple tracks with some “meh” production.

Moonlight Prophecy
Spellbound
Self-Release
TGhree songs, a little classic thrash, and a little prog metal feeling, or just a good classic metal.  Two of the three are instrumentals and are pretty cool as prog metal goes.

Band: Carnal Garden
Album: Where They Are Silent
Label: Eclectic prods
A little doomy a little grindy, but overall meaty grooving death metal.  A little bit of an old school Obituary feeling.

Abatuar
Perversiones De Muerte Putrefacta
Dunkelheit Produktionen
This is some blackened death metal, with some classic death metal grooves but then going into some classic blast beaty black metal.

Band: Ulvegr
Album: Titahion Kaos Manifest
Label: Ashen Dominion
This is some good modern black metal.  Good cold meedly guitars, good production, melodic death metal parts, shrieky yet gritty vox.  Good stuff.

MAXDMYZ
ALCHEMICAL METAL
LABEL: RENEGADE RECORDS
melodic groove metal type stuff.  Maybe a little gothy doom feel too.

AVULSED
Night of the Living Deathgenerations
Xtreem Music
Live album of this brutal death metal band.  Sounds decent.  Cookie monster gurgling and a grindy death metal sound.

LUNATIC HOOKER
EMBRACING THE FILTH
LABEL: BLACK BOW RECORDS
I guess this is just good ol Brutal death metal.  Chuggy riffs, pissed off growly screams and a good meaty low end.

GOLDENPYRE
In Eminent Disgrace
Signal Rex
PRetty much the same as above, meaty brutal death metal.  Maybe a little more dooomy and down tempo.

The Projectionist
Exalted Solitude
Label: Appalachian Noise Records & The True Plague Records
Classic cold sounding black metal with reaallly creepy shrieky screamy evil vox.  Production is a bit raw and vocal production is even more raw.

Pyroxene
EP
Record label: Inverse Records
A little classic metal, maybe a tiny prog metal, and just some decent grooves, clean-ish vox.

Blood of Angels
Rise of the Fallen Gods (EP)
Label: Hollywood Collective
Melodic death metal, heavy brutal stuff, but maybe a little melodic stuff more like Amon Amarth.  Vox are cookie monster throughout and brutal!

Band: Craving Angel
Album: Redemption
Label: Minotauro records
Classic metal, guitar work sounds decent, vocal production doesn’t seem to match the rest of the music.  it’s a little raw and just I don’t know, doesn’t really match.

In Death…
The Devil Speaks
Plastic Head
Now we’re talking thrashed up death metal, brutal, heavy, catchy, chugga chugga freight train but with a good groove and little melodic stuff too.  Great stuff.

Band: My Silent Wake (re-issue with 3 bonus tracks!)
Album: Damnatio Memoriae
Label: Minotauro records
Reissue from their 2015 album.  Little soon for a reissue?  Maybe a label change or whatever… anyway, doomy melodic death metal, reminds me a little bit of some of the newer Opeth, decent grooves, a bit of a death metal edge too.

Kill For Eden
Petty Crimes
Horus Music
Classic throwback metal with female vox.  Good groove

GAME OVER
Blessed Are The Heretics
Scarlet Records
This is some classic gritty metal type stuff… a little thrashy and hardcore-ish.  A Cover of “You Spin Me Round” too!

Tehom (Sweden)
The Merciless Light CD/LP
Blood Harvest
Classic death metal, big grooves, a bit of that Swedish death metal melody and edge too.

Medusa1975
Rising From The Ashes
Svart Records
Kind of a 70’s doomy classic stoner metal… organ, catchy stoner riffs, maybe some 70’s prog stuff too.

CRYONIC TEMPLE
Into The Glorious Battle
Scarlet Records
Here we have classic metal with power metal tendencies.  decent stuff.

Band: Where The Sun Comes Down
Album: Welcome
Label: Minotauro records
Stoner metal with big experimental doom type sound too.  A little sludge/noise stoner metal with sabbath-like main riffs, and some more shouty vox… kind of megaphone-like.

Band: Agresiva
Album: Decibel Ritual
Label: Minotauro records
A little classic metal with a thrashy vibe… vox are clean/sung… music has a good gallop-y metal… reminds me of annihilator in some parts.

Band: Resurrect The Machine
Album: Uncover The Truth
Label: Minotauro records
Another with a classi metal and a thrashy feeling.  Decent grooves, clean vox, guitar work, all that.  Just good ol “metal”.

Cry My Name
Reflections
Bastardized Recordings
Melodic death/ Deathcore stuff.  Catchy and brutal in parts, shouty growled vox, some melodic metalcore-ish guitars… The clean parts are ok, still has that metal/new metalcore feel, but not whiney emo-enough to hate on it.

Celestial Grave
Pvtrefactio 7″ EP
Iron Bonehead
Two songs of Old school black metal, a bit of a wall of sound.

Emptybrook
Emptybrook EP
Inverse
Kind of noisy post-metal/hardcore-ish stuff.  A bit of a “blackened punk” feeling.

Zaraza
Spasms of Rebirth
Self Released (Against PR)
Post metal / melodic blackened post-metal.  Growly vox, a bit of a cold black metal tone, but slow doomy tempo.

Band: Pereplut
Album: V Starodavnie Goda
Label: Stygian Crypt productions
Folk metal, a good heavy base and the flutey folky instruments with that bouncy yet heavy thrashy metal sound.  Great stuff.

Band: DOWNCAST TWILIGHT
Album: Under The Wings Of The Aquila
Label: Stygian Crypt productions
Melodic death/folk metal.  Good meaty straightforward melodic death metal with some of the keyboardy folk stuff going on too.  solid for “folk metal”
