Psychostick
DO
Self-Release
Hard to be objective on this when I’m a big fan. I just love their style of catchy/thrashy/cleanly produced metal… on top of that, they are just telling hilarious, goofy stories in their lyrics. Believe it or not, the first track reminds me of an epic Dimmu Borgir track. Great stuff… and on top of it, they were going to announce “details” of their album last Tuesday night and announced that the album was done and on sale that night! Pretty neat.

Sinsaenum
“Final Resolve”
earMUSIC
Another single from these doomy black metallers… good grooves

Ocean Of Illusions
Ocean of Illusions EP
Diamond Records
Last week we just had a single, now we have the full EP. it’s kind of an Epic blackend brutalcore thing. Keyboards adding an ethereal background with machine gun guitar/drum riffs… harsh blackened death shrieks and growls.

Band: Paganland
Album: XX Years of Paganland [Live album]
Label: Azermedoth Records
Folky Pagan black metal on this live album. Of course, live this is heavier and pretty cool I haven’t really seen/heard too many blackened folk metal bands live (not really a USA thing, right?) This sounds pretty damn good!

Beartooth
“Bad Listener” (Metal Track) “Disease” (Active ROck)
Red Bull
Sort of a hardcore/nu metal/modern metal. Good catchy stuff, nice edge. One song is pretty metal, the other is well, more active rock and lots more “singy”

Otep
Kult 45
Napalm
We all know Otep and how her albums general have an “Arty” quality to them, but also a hardcore nu-metal-ish sound. For the most part, the songs are crunchy, heavy, but some of those melodic breaks… overall, it’s otep-core and pretty decent.

Lord Of The Lost Disc I & II
Thornstar
Napalm Records
A Gothy/industrialized modern metal, kind of a Volbeat meets FFDP

Hammer Down Hard
Total Annihilation
Independent
A standard classic metal type thing with some good heavier crunchy grooves, then settling in a bit more for the full song. Decent stuff.

Halcyon Way
Bloody But Unbowed
Agonia Records
Kind of a classic metal, a bit thrashy, some big grooves and tech/proggy too! I’ve been a fan of these guys since seeing them open for UDO a few years back. Great stuff.

Crosson
Invincible
Metalapolis Records
classic hard rock with a bit of that 90’s AOR sound.

Into Eternity
The Sirens
Self-Release
Their first album with their new female singer… music is the same heavy progressive death metal type stuff they’ve done, haven’t skipped a beat (they were ahead of their time anyway!)… Stu Block has some big vocal shoes to fill and this Amanda Kiernan fills them perfect with a mix of harsh and clean vox. Great stuff!

SAATE
Exorcise (single)
Rockshots Records
Proggy power metal on this 3 song EP, A good heavy edge with some clean power metal type vox.

Siege Column
Inferno Deathpassion LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Brutal blackened death metal with some “meh” production.

Moenen of Xezbeth
Ancient Spells of Darkness… LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
A creepy (creepy keyboard sounds) old school doomy black metal.

Sissy Spacek
Ways of Confusion LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Just shy of 40 tracks on here. Blast beaty, grindy brutal fast songs all mostly clocking in at under 30 seconds!

RAVENS CREED
Get Killed or Try Dying
Xtreem Music
Some typical death metal, shouty vox, grooving brutal-ish music.

MONGREL’S CROSS
Psalter of the Royal Dragon Court (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
Kind of a melodic death metal, yet blackened death going on. Good stuff.

ABHORRENT DEFORMITY
SLAUGHTER MONOLITH
LABEL: COMATOSE MUSIC
Classic grooving death metal.

Void Rot
Consumed By Oblivion
Everlasting Spew Records
I’d have to call this some post-metal doomy death metal. Slow tempo, dark, depressing and well, steadily depressing.

Pyre
Human Hecatomb
Redefining Darkness Records
Extreme thrash with oh, say blackened thrash, raw and fast, almost grindy but then you can get shifted into some doomy grooves too. Cool stuff.

Band: Bastian
Album: Grimorio
Label: Sliptrick records
Hard rock pushing into metal with some big grooves, otherwise, a decent catchy classic metal with a nice big voice

Witchgöat
Umbra Regit
Morbid Skull Records
3 songs of blackened death metal. it’s a bit raw, but brutal and yeah, even a bit catchy in its melodic evilness

Event Relentless
Event Relentless EP
Inverse
This is kind of a melodic death but a bit of a modern metal feel.

Samuli Federley
Lifestream
INverse
Dymanic instrumental which is hard to put a genre label on. It gets a little heavier, goes to acoustic melodic, some doomy post metal, middle eastern… all sorts of neat stuff mixed into a 4 song ep.

New Stuff This Week… 7/23/18

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 7/23/18
Jul 222018
 

Jungle Rot
Jungle Rot
Victory
You just can’t go wrong with Jungle Rot. They’re from Wisconsin, they have stood the test of time, classic big grooving death metal, and why not have a new album too right? We just have 3 tracks so far and all are great stuff.

Redemption
Long Night’s Journey into Day
Metal Blade Records
They now have a new singer for some reason, but after many years of Ray Alder, they now have Tom Englund (of Evergrey) on lead vox… This new album contunues their tradtion of good solid textbook prog metal. Great stuff, probably not as I guess “unique” as with Ray Alder, I think it’s right up there.

The Amity Affliction
“Ivy (Doomsday)”
Roadrunner
This is our go to make fun of band for all we don’t really like about modern metal core… really heavy stuff, then a really really whiney chorus song ruiner… well this single is more of a modern metal power ballad type thing through and through. Probably something we might skip :/

Enrage
“World War Me”/”I Am The Storm”
Blackseven Records
NYC Hardcore… good hardcore edge with a little bit of a thrash thing too. (just 2 songs so far)

Pig Destroyer
“Army of Cops”
Relapse
A single of grooving death metal with that little pinch of grindy vox

Ocean Of Illusions
“Jukai”
Diamond Records
This is some technical blackened death metal. A bit of a full almost a little Epic sound, some great guitar work, super fast drumming and extreme vox. Looking forward to more of this!

Dee Snider
For THe Love Of Metal
Napalm Records
This is some good solid hard rock type stuff. Catchy music, good classic metal, and the voice!

Derek Smalls
Smalls Change “Meditations Upon Ageing”
BMG
A new album from the Spinal Tap Bassist… leaving the ‘tap behind to channel his big bottoms with a slew of guest musicians. A fun classic metal/hard rock thing with a fully produced sound… it’s somewhat of a concept album about getting old.

Michael Romeo
War Of THe Worlds Pt. I
Mascot Label Group
From the mind of Symphony X is pretty much a Symphony X album without as much Symphony and Russell Allen. Same general crunchy proggy power metal as Symphony X, but maybe a bit more straightforward metal and to the point.

Ironcore Resistance
For The Fallen
Pavement Entertainment
A modern “Classic” metal, a bit of a groove, nothing too thrashy, brutal, deathy, etc. Doesn’t really have a classic like, Priest sound, more of something new with big riffs, a pinch of a pantera type groove.

Orgy
Army To Your Party (Single)
D1 Music
Pretty much as I remember these guys… electronic/industrial/alt-metal/nu-metal type stuff. And that’s just from a single!

Aparthiva Raktadhara
Agyat Ishvar 7″ EP
Iron Bonehead
a couple tracks of lo-fi crazy fast black metal

Atavisma
The Chthonic Rituals
Memento Mori
Brutal blackened death metal. Cold black metal attitude over some brutal death metal. A big full wall of brutal, evil sound.

Tunjum
Deidades del inframundo
Dunkelheit Produktionen
Classic death metal, a little dark doom feel, otherwise, just classic brutal death metal.

Drawn and Quartered
The One Who Lurks
Krucyator Productions
Brutal old school death metal. A little melodic stuff, but mostly sludgey brutal death metal.

FAITHXTRACTOR
Proverbial Lambs to the Ultimate Slaughter (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
HEre we got some fast blackened death metal, it’s good black metal, it’s good death metal, fast, in your face, with catchy grooves and brutal too. All the good stuff about both black and death metal are all here and done well. good stuff!

OUTLINE
Fire Whiplash (CD, LP, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
Kind of a raw speed metal, a bit thrashy with a little punky feel. screamy female vox round out this extreme thrashy sound.

Gravewards
Ruinous Ensoulment
Unspeakable Axe Records
If I had to pick a similar band, I’d probably throw Behemoth out there… brutal, a bit black metal, fast and intense with no fucking around. Great stuff.

Dis Orcus
Somnambulistic Visions
Forever Plagued
Dark doomy black metal. Gurgly/shrieky black metal vox, a slower doomy sound.

Hellish
The Spectre of Lonely Souls
Unspeakable Axe Records
A bit black metal, a bit thrash, catchy grooves sometimes too, but vox are harsh with a gallopy speed thrash thing going on. good stuff.

SHED THE SKIN
We of Scorn (CD, LP, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
Good ol classic grooving death metal. Good stuff!!

Black Space Riders
Amoretum Vol. 2
Black Space Records / Cargo Records
Some classic hard rock with some grooves, a big of a grungy stoner metal sound.

BLACK HOWLING
Return of Primordial Stillness
Signal Rex
Some long noisy post-metal stuff.

ALBIONIC HERMETICISM
Ancient Hermetic Purity
Signal Rex
Classic old school screamy lo-fi-ish black metal, a bit of a post-metal wall of noise feel too.

BOUNJOUR TRISTESSE
Your Ultimate Urban Nightmare
Lifeforce
This has an experimental post-metal feeling to it… kind of doomy, with some fast melodic black metal parts, some post metal noise, some just doomy stuff…

Draghkar
The Endless Howling Abyss
Craneo Negro Records / Nameless Grave Records
Some fairly straightforward blackened death, a bit basic, some meedly meedly harsh growls..

INVOCATION SPELLS
Spread Cruelty In The Abyss (CD, LP, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
This has an old school black metal feel, but a bit more with some extreme thrash holding it together… definitely cold/evil black metal sound, just a bit thrashy i guess.

Flood Peak
Plagued by Sufferers
Self-Released
Melodic post metal, but a bit more technical and proggy… It seems like there’s lots going on, going from heavier parts to lighter stuff, vox are kind of buried

Traveler / Coronary
Traveler / Coronary
Gates of Hell Records
Traveler is kind of a doomy almost King Diamond thing. Coronary, is kind of an old school metal/thrash thing. As a guy that isn’t really a fan of “split” eps, both sides of this one are pretty good.

Lower Automation
Shoebox Companion
Self-Released
An experimental Dillinger Escape Plan/SOAD type thing. A bit crazy, proggy, metalcore-ish. They say “mathpunk/noise” and there’s a bit of that going on too.

BLACK HOWLING
Return of Primordial Stillness
Signal Rex
A kind of old school black metal. A couple really long tracks, a little bit of a groove, but overall, lots of shriking and repetetive riggages.

Ritual Aesthetic
Wound Garden
Cleopatra Records
This is interesting, it’s kind of an industrialized lite black metal. Has a classic industrial metal feel, but a bit of a black metal fear factory feeling too.

Kikis A. Apostolou
Phases of Time
Self Released
Mostly an instrumental classic metal, kind of a proggy power metal. Catchy good guitar work… a song or two have power metal vox.

Return to Void
Memory Shift: The Day After
Pitch Black
Here we have a melodic metal, kind of a standard hard rock/metal type thing. Great hooks, catchy toons, Some heavier stuff, mostly good hard driving crunchy rock, maybe bordering on some prog metal with the keyboards and stuff.

Dizzy Mystics
Diamond Duller (single)
Self-Release
This is more of an alternative rock thing. I should probably listen to stuff before I put the download list together. I guess it’s a bit proggy in the rock department, a lot of crazy drum timing and stuff going on… but still probably not for the metal show.

DE PROFUNDIS
THE BLINDING LIGHT OF FAITH: VINYL EDITION
LABEL: LUSITANIAN MUSIC
This is cool, because this is a remastered version of their album that came out in May… This is the limited edition package for the vinyl release… This vinyl release comes out on Sept 7. Well, I never got the original, so, here we are with the review of the album in general!… So, we got some brutal progressive blackened death metal. SOme fast and furious playing, brutal vox going into some more melodic catchy headbanging metal stuff too. Great stuff!!

Release: Dark Archive
Morningstar
Record label: Inverse Records
This is an epic black metal type thing. Epic? why epic? big symponic keyboard sound.
Between the Buried and Me
“Voice of Trespass” (Single)
Sumerian
This track is kind of proggy jazz metal if you can imagine that, then getting into the brutal proggy goodness that you expect from BTBAM. Wow.

THE LION’S DAUGHTER
Future Cult
Season of Mist
A bit of a doomy creepy (has some creepy synth type sounds), a bit black metal, some post metal grindy stuff too. Otherwise, it’s generally melodic post-black metal.

Jul 152018
 

LORDS OF THE TRIDENT
Death Dealer (single)
Self Released
Great new single… first real new stuff with the Baron in the band. Excellent power metal, huge fans of these local guys, vox are top of the game. Great stuff!

Bury Tomorrow
Black Flame
Sony
Modern metalcore type stuff, melodic vox, shouted vox, some good grooves, doesn’t get totally mallcore in the chorus parts, some decent heavy breakdowns, could almost compare them to the newer in flames and a little Volbeat.

POUND OF FLESH
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS
DRAKERAVEN ENTERTAINMENT
A bit of an electronic/industrial hard rock.

Deafheaven
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love
Anti/Epitaph
One of those “it” bands…they do a lot of stuff other bands do, but for some reason this band clicks with a broader audience. A basic black metal sound, branching into melodic death and post-metal too.

SOREPTION.
King of Undisputed Nonsense (single)
Sumerian
Technical brutal death metal on sumerian records, so one may say it’s “sumerian-core” which is not a bad thing. Clean production, harsh vox, techy metalcore/deathcore type stuff. I’d like more please.

Six Feet Under
Unburied
Metal Blade Records
A collection of previously unreleased stuff and outtakes, production is a bit raw, but it’s cool to get some of the closet cleanin’s

Powerwolf
The Sacrament Of Sin
Napalm Records
Fast and heavy power metal, kind of like a dragonforce.

Kore Rozzik
Vengence Overdrive
Cleopatra Records
Seems kind of a metal rock opera, some skit stuff, and the songs are good crunchy modern metal. Catchy with some grooves…

Marduk
Viktoria
Century Media Records
Only a single so far, but just in your face blackend thrashy death metal. These guys are still at the top of their game.

Epica
Epica Vs. Attack On Titan Songs
Nuclear Blast USA
Covers EP based on Attack on Titan Anime… all done in the unmistakable sound of Epica!

Chris Caffery
The Jester’s Court
Metalville Records
As with his other releases, it’s good heavy, crunchy classic metal, production on this one is a bit more crisp than some of his older stuff. good metal here!

DEPTHS OF HATRED
Bloodguilt
Prosthetic Records
Kind of a brutal core / death metal… growly vox, then screamy vox, fast brutal metal

Survival
Murkin Hella Fools
NBRD Records
Kind of thrashy, and a bit electronic… the production is, well, weird. sounds like it was run through an mp3 converter about 300 times.

SKELETONWITCH
Devouring Radiant Light
Prosthetic Records
As always these guys put out good stuff… blackened thrashy stuff that’s heavy and catchy as all hell… They keep truckin’ on with even better stuff, maybe some added melodic stuff too..

Oxygen Destroyer
Bestial Manifestations of Malevolence and Death
Redefining Darkness Records
Kind of an extreme blackended thrash… Really fast thrashy stuff with a black metal vocal style. Headbanging thrash but the evil coldness of black metal great stuff!!

Scarlet Records
Classic metal leaning toward power metal, good hard rockin’ stuff. Catchy riffs, and just great ol classic metal.

CEMETERY LUST
Rotting in Piss (CD, LP)
Hells Headbangers
Death metal with a little bit of a doomy gore thing going on. It’s a little bit of a black metal and pinch of thrash

KHANUS
Flammarion (CD/LP/Digital)
I, Voidhanger Records
This is kind of a melodic blackened death metal. Good grooves, a pinch of black metal dark/coldness, death metal grooves and heaviness. Great stuff.

Matalobos
Until Time Has Lost All Meaning
Concreto Records
BLackened doom in track one, a long 10 minute thing… track 2 is more of a fast melodic death/extreme thrash thing and track 3 is a short acoustic number.

Creatures
II
Old Haunt Records
Kind of a metalcore/brutalcore thing. Catchy, a little technical, melodic, shrieky vox, cookie monster vox and brutal too! Good stuff.

Zombiefication
Below the Grief
Doomentia
Mostly black metal, but a bit of a grindy noisecore… a bit of a punk thing going on too.

PARASITE INC
Headfuck Rollercoaster
Reaper Entertainment (P)&(C)
A bit of a thrashy thing. Good metal edge, catchy riffs and music, harsh vox, maybe a bit like a Chimaira thing. Good stuff.

Wölfblood
Nightriders
Reaper Metal Productions | Seeing Red Records
A little bit of stoner metal, more like a heavier extreme stoner metal, but more full on just “metal” going on too.

Band: Vanhävd
Album: Låt köttet dö
Self Released
Three 9ish minute tracks of blackened doom… pretty decent stuff.

Release: Rough Grind
Trouble or Nothing

A kind of raw blackend death metal. A definite black metal base, but a bit more gritty and grooving.

Album Title : Songbird
Label : Lions’den Records
Kind of an electronic ambient hard rock industrial-ish thing.

Sven Gali
Kill The Lies (single)
Self-Release
A classic hard rock/AOR thing. Catchy, maybe a little bit of an early Sevendust meets Bush vibe.

New Stuff This Week…7/9/18

 Concert Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week…7/9/18
Jul 062018
 

Obscura
Diluvium
Relapse Records
One of the originators of a djenty technical death metal… Great technical, fast, proggy, brutal… great stuff.

DevilDriver
Outlaws Till The End Vol. I
Napalm Records
I’m not a fan of country, and well, frankly not a lot of metalheads are… but apparently Devildriver members are, or are of old school country stuff, so they took to covering old country songs in the metal stylings of Devildriver… being that I like Devildriver, and cover songs, this tends to work ok… I don’t know the originals anyway…Lol

To Whom It May
The Great Filter
G4L Records
Kind of a modern alt-metal, a little bit of a prog rock thing. Melodic vox, music, not a whole of true “metal” just driving hard rock type stuff.

Blasphemy
Victory (Son of the Damned) DLP/CD/TAPE
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Wall of grindy black metal sound… a big harsh, a little lo-fi and I think there’s a little bit of a punk thing going on too.

IRON HUNTER
Mankind Resistance
Fighter Records
Standard classic metal/power metal. Good classic metal screamy vox, good ol metal backing.

Black Fast
Spectre of Ruin
Entertainment One
Heavy, catchy, melodic blackened death metal. Maybe a little like a Cradle of Filth, but a bit more “normal”

Graven Maul
Crushed Skull Moon
Redefining Darkness Records
Sludgey doomy stuff. A good groove while having a littel bit of a blackened death thing going on… but not too heavy as it’s big huge heavy meaty doom. Maybe stepping it up to get a little bit like Obituary.

Malsanctum
Malsanctum LP/CD
Iron Bonehead
More sludgey doomy post-metal noise… a few really long tracks of noise.

Firtan
Okeanos
AOP Records
Epic melodic black metal, great sound, a bit tech/proggy in the approach, brutal and heavy yet a great full melodic catchy sound.

Ratbreed
Evoke The Blaze
Inverse Records
A bit of a classic metal, Judas Priest/Dragonforce type thing, til the vox come in, then it’s some just classic melodic metal with female vox. Good stuff, but the instrumental intros seem a bit heavier than when you get into the song. Songs are still good, melodic and catchy, just not as heavy… just more “standard metal”

Temple Desecration
Whirlwinds of Fathomless Chaos LP/CD
Iron Bonehead
Blackened death… more on the blackened. Grindy brutal extreme cookie monster vox with some death metal grooves, but black metal echoes.

Pa Vesh En
A Ghost 7″ EP
Iron Bonehead
Echoey post-metal black metal noise

WOES
The Coldest Place Is Within Myself
Godbox Records
Kind of a brutal metalcore, crusty and a bit melodic, but chaotic too. Screamy vox… reminds me a little of a heavier more loose 36 Crazyfists.

Mouth Of Sauron
Hearken The Echo Of Music
Transcending Records
Brutal old school death metal with a little tech death/djent thing going on.

Nopes
Stapler
Magnetic Eye Records
A little punky southern twanged hard rock. So a good southern hard rock sound with a punk vox/attitude.

Exlibris
Innertia
Independent
This is a proggy power metal thing, clean vox, good metal edge, how about good high classic screamy metal vox? yeah! Cool keyboard stuff (hammond and others, not just boop boopy stuff) Good all around prog metal.

A.H.P.
Forakt Hat Og Død
Avantgarde Music
One 18 miinute black metal/post black metal track… and one of them is a 13 min. Burzum cover. (mostly ambient keyboardy stuff) The original is decent classic black metal stuff, mostly brutal classic harsh black metal.

Kalaallit Nunaat / Au Revoir (split)
Memories From Desolate Battlefields
This Winter Will Last Forever
Kalaallit Nunaat has a bit of a groove in their two 10 min tracks, a bit of a classic black metal. Au Revoir? Meh. Lo-fi post black metal.

Greystone Canyon
While The Wheels Still Turn
Rockshots Records
Melodic hard rock.

MIKEY CUNNINGHAM AND THE AFTERMATH
Massive Head Wound
Online MEtal Promo
As with most bands with a guys’ name and whatever, this is instrumental, good catchy meaty metal instrumentals! Problem is that the production is a bit mushy, but the point gets across… good short-ish songs with no messing around. Cool stuff.

Sinsaenum
“Sacred Martyr”
earMUSIC
New single from the post slipknot Joey Jordison’s black metal/extreme metal band. I’d say this one is a bit more on the extreme metal side than throwing a black metal label on it. Still good heavy stuff.

Release: Skyglow
Thousand Years Of Terror
Record label: Inverse Records & Grotesque Sounds
Progressive death metal, a good melodic thing, harsh vox, clean vox, a true proggy yet harsh death metal thing, yet good normal melodic stuff too.

(PRC103) AKELARRE
Decade of Desecration CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
Brutal death metal.

(PRC102) THE AFTERMATH
Vermine CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
Technical brutalcore

(PRC101) CREEPING FLESH
In Times of War CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
Classic grooving death metal.

(PRC100) TORTURER
Die in Pain CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
More of a raw old school black/death metal.

(PRC99) TYRANNO
Skulls, Horns & Lust CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
This is a blackened death metal with some actual grooves maybe a bit of a thrash attitude too.

Engulf
Gold And Rust
Everlasting Spew Records
Technical and brutal death metal. Three quick, down and dirty tracks with no fucking around.

Traitors Gate
Fallen
No Remorse
Classic metal, big voice, just your normal every day “metal”

Band: Voodoo Diamond
Album: Darkness Becomes Us
Label: Musicarchy Media
Kind of a classic metal/proggy/power metal thing. It’s not quite power metal as the vox have more of an edge, but there are some parts that make it seem a bit of a basic prog metal, or maybe some melodic commercial-ish type stuff. Decent stuff though.

Various Artists
Hell Night / Sweat Shoppe – Split 7″
Encapsulated Records
Hell night features Brian Fair from Shadows Fall fame… it’s a bit of a harsh metalcore, pretty raw, maybe some basic thrash going on too. Sweat Shoppe has a bit more of a punk feel.

Cassius King
Sight For Sore Eyes & Girls Got Rhythm
independent
2 songs of some groovin’ catchy funky hard rock.

Band: Into the Cave
Album: Insulters of Jesus Christ
Label: Iron, Blood & Death Corp
Old school blackened thrash… yup, it’s got that old school thrash thing going on, but also a dark black metal rawness.

Artist: Beyond Carnage
Release Title: Profane Sounds Of The Flesh
Record Label: Firecum Records
Old school chugga chugga cookie monster meat and potatoes grooving death metal. Hearkens back to some old Cannibal Corpse. great stuff.

Kontinuum
No Need for Reason
Season of Mist
6 July 2018
