Tombs
The Grand Annihilation
Metal Blade Records
Heavy grooving blackened death metal.  A big proggy in that there’s lots of stuff going on, melodic grooves, extreme stuff, deathy riffs, black metal evilness too.

Igorrr
Savage Sinusoid
Metal Blade Records
Talk about the kitchen sink…. You got just about everything here.  Death/prog/folk/industrial.  I’ll paste something from the press release:  “On this record, electronic manipulations, accordion, saxophone, sitar, harpsichord, mandolin and strings sit comfortably alongside ruthless blastbeats, chunky riffs, death grunts and soaring operatic vocals ”  So yeah, it’s for an open mind, that’s for sure.

Suffocation
Of Dark Light
Nuclear Blast USA
Heavy, brutal, catchy and technical just like they’ve always done. Great stuff!

Curse The Son
Isolator
Ripple Music
Down tempo, yet meaty doom metal with clean vox

Rivethead
Fix Our Enemy
Pavement Music
Kind of an industrial metal hard rock thing, maybe a bit of a power prog metal going on too… think like a power metal-ish Marilyn Manson

Held Hostage
“Show Me The Way Back Home” (2 songs)
Self Released
Classic rock/hard rock.  Not really for the mosh pit, but some decent catchy stuff.

SikTh
The Future In Whose Eyes?
Millennium Night
Technical extreme melodic death type stuff.

Mutoid Man
War Moans
Sargent House
Kind of a punky thrash… fast and in your face, clean vox, so there’s a little stoner feeling (vocal style – kind of Mastodon-ish)

Eckman Dredge
Get Away Closer (single)
Self-Release
Modern metal with a phat low end… vocally, clean and kind of that moderm metalcore singy stuff.

Moonshiner
Self Titled Demo
Label: Self-Released
Doomy, slowed down stoner metal with what sounds like someone trying cookie monster vox in a computer mic.  very simple and basic.

Thus Defiled
A Return To The Shadows
Label: Independent
A brutal blackened melodic death metal.  Fast and heavy, but still things of melodic catchiness goind on.

Ghost Toast
Out of This World
Inverse Records
Experimental proggy instrumental rock.  Definitely proggy, bordering on heavier metal stuff in parts.  cool stuff.

Knogjärn
Marscherar & Förstör
Big Balls Productions
Hardcore/metalcore/metal, melodic stuff in parts, kind of a heavy modern death metal type thing, but with clean vox in a chorus, so melodic metacore I guess.

CEMETERY URN
Cemetery Urn (CD, LP, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
Brutal death metal.  Great stuff.

SunSpell / Saudade (Canada)
From the Mist…We are but Dust – split LP
Iron Bonehead
Both of these are kind of a post-metal, maybe a little doom on Sunspell and black metal in Saudade

Progenie Terrestre Pura
oltreLuna
Avantgarde Music
Technical, proggy, experimental and overall, black metal.  Neat stuff.

Walpyrgus
Walpyrgus Nights
Cruz Del Sur Music
Melodic classic metal, clean vox, a bit of a modern metal sound, but maybe a gothy classic metal feel.

Logic of Denial
Aftermath
Comatose Music
This one is a freight train of relentless brutal death metal.  Cool stuff.

Vigilance
Hammer of Satan’s Vengeance
Dying Victims Productions
A bit of a stoner doom feeling, good grooves, but some extreme moments, like a bit of a basic black metal thing happening too.

A Flourishing Scourge
A Flourishing Scourge
Begotten Records
Brutal and technical death metal… longer songs a pinch of black metal.  good stuff.

On the Ruins of a Fallen Empire 7″ EP
Blood Harvest
Gurgly blackened death metal (2 songs)

Replenishment Circle (The Black Spectumfest) 7″ EP/TAPE

Enragement
Burned, Barren, Bloodstained

Kind of a melodic death metal, leaning more on the death metal side, kind of technical, all harsh vox.

Meldodic, black metal, a bit of a doom and prog thing too… Two songs and I’d say they crossinto like 10 genres. haha  good stuff though.

Requiem For Oblivion
Burning Nation

Raw production, experimental proggy death metal, unfortunately the production wrecks it a little for me.  There’s a lot going on technically and it’s good and brutal too.

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week…5/29/17
May 282017
 

Doyle
As We Die
EMP
A good raw edge, with some good basic grooving hard rocking metal.  I’ve never really been a Misfits fan, for no other reason that I’m not that familiar!  haha… this isn’t much like what I remember from Misfits…  Like I said, just some good solid rockin’ groove metal ttype stuff.

Future Figment
Qualm
Self-Released
Kind of a prog hard rock thing, maybe a little like a Tool meets Porcupine Tree. There’s a heavy feeling, but also atmospheric and laid back.  Kind of cool stuff, maybe just not for regular mosh pit rotation.

KMFDM
“Hell Yeah” [Single]
earMUSIC
Typical techno-ish stuff, not much of a metal edge this time around on this single.  We’ll let Something Wonderful keep this one.

Execration
Return to the Void – radio single
Metal Blade Records
This is a bit of a blackened prog-ish metal.  Heavy, brutal, yet maybe a bit thrashy in parts, it feels raw, but yet keeps it heavy.

Gloom
Solaris
Entertainment One
Doomy death metal.  Brutal, sludgey but still heavy.  Brutal barked out growly vox.

Unleash The Archers
Apex
Napalm Records
Melodic death metal, female vox.  A bit on the power metal/Iron Maiden sound musically too.  High screamy female metal vox, and some good growls too… lots of great guitar work.

Tengger Cavalry
Sie On My Ride
M-Theory Audio
Kind of an atmospheric melodic rock.  Not really much on the metal side.

ATREXIAL
Souverain
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Brutal Blackened Death Metal. Heavy, catchy, evil… great stuff.

Acherontas
Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II)
W.T.C.Productions
Kind of black metal, a bit more brutal and melodic than the old school classic black metal.  But there is that cold and evil guitars and overall

Monobrow
The Nacarat
Trill Or Be Trilled
Kind of a stoner metal, a doomy thing, a throwback thing, good groove and seemingly all instrumental

Niviane
The Druid King
Self Released
A heavier power metal thing going on.  Clean vox, good crunch, but also a little bit of an epic thing too.

DRÅP
Rotten Till Allt Ont
Xtreem Music
Good bruising grooving death metal

StarGazer (Australia)
A Merging to the Boundless: Void of Voyce LP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
A bit of a melodic black metal. The black metal just comes from a little bit of the guitar tone, but overall, it’s proggy melodic death metal… and instrumental

Horrid (Italy)
Beyond the Dark Border
Dunkelheit Produktionen
Brutal death metal, great stuff

Akerbeltz (Spain)
Satanic
BlackSeed Productions
CLassic black metal, production is decent.  It’s evil and cold… a bit basic but decenet raw stuff.

Sapata
Satanibator
Inverse
Female fronted grooving hard rock, maybe a little doom/goth-like

Unaussprechlichen Kulten

Iron Bonehead
Long name, good ol death metal.  Good grooves, a bit melodic but 100% brutal.

Wednesday 13
Condolences
Genre: Other
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
The same horror metal type thing that they helped pioneer and hone from Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson/Alice Cooper type stuff.  They do have their own sound, but a variation on the others.  Decent stuff.

Deity
Self-Titled
Self-Release
ooooh this is some technical brutal death metal stuff… maybe a littel bit of a blackened death sound.  great stuff!

Gravetemple
Impassable Fears
Svart Records
Noisy post metal doom black metal type stuff.  Meh.

Marthyrium
Beyond the Thresholds
BlackSeed Productions
Black metal, melodic, heavy, catchy, brutal too.  Good well rounded stuff.

Panopticon
Kentucky
Nordvis Produktion / Bindrune Recordings
Doomy, cold black metal, but then it’s got weird folksy interlude tracks.  It’s a bit more of a atmospheric post-metal overall.

BIRDFLESH / ORGAN DEALER
“Split” Album
Horror Pain Gore Death
Birdflesh is some good quick brutal death metal, maybe a bit raw and punky too.  Organ Dealer is good brutal grind.

Dead Asylum
Death Always Wins
Self-Release
Kind of a melodic death/blackened death metal.  Great brutal and heavy groove

Artist: Apallic
Release: Of Fate And Sanity
Record Label: Boersma-Records
Proggy death metal, kind of a melodic death, heavy in parts, laid back and chilled out in others.  The brutal parts are sick and techy, the other laid back stuff is a good time to get the energy back to thrash out with the metal freight train coming for you.

Band: Antidote
Album: The Truth + Bonus (demos 1990-1992) [Remastered]
Label: Minotauro records
Old school thrash – remastered from 1992

A bit hardcore, a bit industrial, some groove metal, some raw heaviness going on.

Band: Marche Funebre
Album: Into The Arms Of Darkness
Label: BadMoodManMusic
Doomy blackened death metal.  Decent grooves, long songs, kind of depressing, but then it gets going heavy in parts too.  INteresting.

Band: Calliophis
Album: Cor Serpentis
Label: Solitude productions
Doomy death metal.  Crunchy sloooow riffs

Band: Evoke Thy Lords
Album: Lifestories
Label: Solitude productions
Doom metal, death metal growly vox, music reminds me a bit of Trouble.

May 152017
 

MERRIMACK
Apophatic Weaponry (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
Brutal blackened death metal, great stuff.

Beastmaker
Inside The Skull
Rise Above
Kind of a sabbath-like stoner metal, decent stuff

Hell Or Highwater
Vista
Spinefarm
An alt-rock hard rock commercial hard rock sounding thing

John Frum
A Stirring in the Noos
Relapse
Good grooving classic death metal.

All Hail The Yeti
Feed The Pigs (EP)
Minus Head Records
a grooving stoner metal feel with a little bit of an ozzy vox vibe

JORN
Fire to the Sun – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
One song… classic hard rockin metal type stuff with Jorn.  Not quite as cheesy as his recent cover’s album.  Guy can sing!

Ikillya
War For An Idea
Urban Yeti Records
A kind of melodic hardcore, maybe classic-ish deathcore.  It’s a bit of a classic metal in parts, but vox and some parts are more extreme… overall some decent grooving.

Beltfed Weapon
Raining Plague
Independent
A heavy power metal with a great metal edge… a bit thrashy with some good chunk but with a high screamy power metal voice.  Great stuff.

Mountains Crave
As We Were When We Were Not
Avantgarde Music
Kind of a doomy black metal.  A bit depressing and dark, but melodic and atmospheric too.

Saule
Saule
Avantgarde Music
Doomy post-metal.

Highland
Loyal to the Nightsky
self-released
Classic old school black metal, in your face and raw, cold and evil.  (Production is good too!)

Grid
Human Collapse Syndrome (EP)
Label: Discouraged Records
Grindy death metal, quick fast brutal songs..> Good stuff!

KALEDON
Carnagus – Emperor Of The Darkness
( Album, May 15th )
This sounded pretty good…. kind of an epic melodic death metal big vox, big epic symphonic stuff… and the version I got is plagued by voiceovers telling me what it is.  What is this 2002?  No thanks.

Nargaroth
Era of Threnody
Inter Arma Productions
Melodic blackened death metal.  Decent groove while staying evil and “troo”  Some melodic parts seem a bit more proggy but still have that cold evil black metal feeling…

THE WIZARDS
Full Moon in Scorpio
Fighter Records
Cool catchy stoner metal/hard rock. A bit of a throwback, but with a modern melodic hard rock sound too.

Sektarism
La Mort de l’Infidèle
Zanjeer Zani Productions
Three very long tracks of dark post metal.  Guitar noise and a guy shouting.

Rikard Sjoblom’s Gungfly
On Her Journey To The Sun
InsideOut
Proggy classic rock sounding stuff. A bit like old school Genesis or Jethro Tull type stuff.

MASTERCASTLE
Wine Of Heaven
Scarlet Records
Female fronted standard metal… a bit of a goth feel… otherwise just a classic hard rocking things

Fractal Generator
Apotheosynthesis
Everlasting Spew Records
Technical brutal death metal.  Thick and meaty, heavy and brutal

DIVINE ELEMENT
Thaurachs Of Borsu
I, Voidhanger Records
Melodic death with more of a death metal feel, a black metal feel in some guitar tone.  There’s a little bit of an epic feeling going on…maybe a pinch of an Amon Amarth thing

Kalopsia
Angelplague
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
Death metal, big grooves, Good heavy stuff, some technicality and cool guitar solos all while being brutal.

The Night Flight Orchestra
Amber Galactic
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
While not really all that metal, it features members of Soilwork and Arch Enemy… it’s their 3rd album… I’m a fan.  This has that throwback to true classic 70’s rock… catchy as hell, and it’s cool to hear Speed from Soilwork just rocking out with his clean vox.  A few songs get a little heavier and are probably good for a spin or two on the Mosh Pit.

Panphage
Storm
Nordvis Produktion
Classic Black metal, it’s heavy and has a good melodic quality too…

MOUNTAINEER
Sirens & Slumber
Lifeforce
A bit of an alt-metal.  Clean vox, guitars are a bit grungy.. a little doomy, a little stoner rock.   just not much for the Mosh Pit.

Unholy Baptism
…On the Precipice of the Ancient Abyss
Self-Release
Classic black metal.  Cold guitars, shreiking vox and a dark evil quality.  Decent production

Thyrant
“What We Left Behind…”
Indie Recordings
Thrashing grooving extreme metal.  Melodic, catchy and brutal too

VIOLENT LIFE VIOLENT DEATH
“V-EP”
Self Released
A raw metalcore/hardcore thrashy type thing.

Band: F41.0
Album: Bürde
Label: Geisterasche Organisation
Atmospheric black metal A good melodic feel, a bit doomy, but then it gets a bit harsh all while staying dark and moody.

Aberrario
Aberratio
Self Released
Kind of a classic death metal.  Meaty grooves, just a little black metal feel, but also some big beefy doomy riffs too.

HAREM SCAREM
United
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Classic hard rocking AOR-ish type stuff.  This is catchy cool stuff, but a bit of a stretch to be called Metal.

SNAKECHARMER
Second Skin
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Very similar to the Harem Scarem, and well most of the stuff on this label.  Good classic early 90’s sounding hard rock.

EARTH ELECTRIC
Vol. 1: Solar
Season of Mist
A sort of stoner/doomy metal throwback.  Catchy and psychedelic, maybe a little like Ghost.

ULSECT
Ulsect
Season of Mist
Kind of a brutal blackened doom metal

WARRANT
Louder Harder Faster
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
We all know about Warrant… and as long as they’ve been around, this is only their 10th album.  This is some decent hard rock stuff. Cool to see them with a refreshed steady lineup for almost 10 years now.

INGLORIOUS
II – DOWNLOAD
And with the other Frontiers releases above, this is along the same lines, a good classic hard rock/AOR type groove with some great clean powerful vox.

AMPÜTATOR
Deathcult Barbaric Hell
Greyhaze Records
Brutal death metal, old school vinyl reissue
