Sep 042017
 

Living Colour
Shade
Megaforce
This is some great stuff, they still have that sound they had from the first album, great grooves, crisp production. This sounds like it could have been released right after Time’s Up. Catchy and groovin’.

Good grooving hard rock.

Arch Enemy
Will To Power
Century Media Records
Hard to review this…as I’m an Arch Enemy fanboy… So, this is a little disappointing that in interviews about Jeff Loomis not having any writing input… I think most people were looking forward to that… that said… this is still good stuff, a bit more maybe watered down and now the 2nd album with Alyssa doing vox, a consistent lineup from a full tour, things seem to fit together pretty well.

Serious Black
Magic
AFM Records
Crunchy power metal, clean vox with some rasp, then getting into high screamy vox sometimes, pretty good stuff.

While She Waits
While She Waits
Independent
A grooving southern bluesy hard rock/metal

8 September 2017
Vinyl reissue of this Michigan blackened death metal band’s first album. We’ve always been on board with this band and a bit sad when they decided to call it quits…. good excuse to play it again.

Argus
From Fields of Fire
Cruz Del Sur Music
A big more like the newer proggy Opeth musically, vox are a bit on the clean side with a stoner metal vibe. So a proggy classic metal, stoner metal, maybe a little bit of a Mercyful fate thing going on.

TEMPERANCE
Maschere – A Night At The Theater
Scarlet Records
An epic proggy power metal thing. It’s got some heavy stuff, while having some typical epic power metal stuff too. I dunno, this seems to have a heavier edge with a few more layers than a typical like Nightwish or something. Cool stuff.

Grift
Arvet
Nordvis Produktion
Dark folky doom type stuff.

Mausoleum Gate
Into a Dark Divinity
Cruz Del Sur Music
This is some classic bluesy metal with organ, clean vox, a 70’s deep purple type vibe going on. Good grooves, stoner metal feelings.

Total Extermination
Greyhaze Records [vinyl reissue]
Sludgey Blackened doom. Creepy, low-fi, meh.

SLAUGHTBBATH
Contempt, War and Damnation (CD)
Hells Headbangers
Blackened death, good grooves, evil feels, solid brutality and leaning more on the modern black metal side of things.

FALAISE
My Endless Immensity
A Sad Sadness Song
Melodic black metal, some more chilled out stuff, crossing into some crazy heavy black metal, but really being proggy in the light stuff and in the heavier stuff too.

Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget
Split
Cruz Del Sur Music
Hands of Orlac is some throwback doom… meaty catchy riffs, creepy female clean vox. cool stuff. Wandering Midget, one 18+ minute track of crunchy doomy stoner metal. also cool stuff!

Band: FYRECROSS
Album: “Burn Them To The Ground”
Label: Witches Brew
This is some heavier power metal type stuff. maybe a thrashy power metal? yeah.

LENG TCH’E
Razorgrind
Season of Mist
Grindy and grooving, almost thrashy, brutal, catchy and fast quick short songs.

DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT
Finisterre
Season of Mist
Black metal, but with some melodic proggy stuff going on, kind of like a more extreme Opeth

KHAZAD-DUM
Garmadh
Wrath of the Tyrant Records
Not to be confused by the Milwaukee band of the same name but without the hyphen… this is some basic old school black metal.

Killing Suzy
Everybody dies, Darling!
Self Released
This is some pretty cool heavier goth metal with clean female vox. Good stuff, it has a heavier groove, kind of basic prog metal thing going on too.

Vice
The First Chapter
Self Released
This is some classic metal, nothing really swaying into any main genre… maybe a bit on the prog/power metal side of things. Cool stuff.

Glass Mind
Dodecaedro
ROCKSHOTS Records
Mexican instrumental prog. it is what it says! Kind of Animals as Leaders meets Liquid Tension Experiment

Eshtadur
Mother Gray
Bleeding Music
This is some kind of extreme blackend prog? metal? It’s heavy, kind of brutal, but has a good catchy melody and probably fits in melodic death but with that technical prog thing… bonus, last track is a cover of Survivor’s Burning Heart

Band: I, Forlorn
Album: My Kingdom Eclipsed
Self Released
Doomy black metal. dark, depressing…

CARDINALS FOLLY
Deranged Pagan Sons
Nine Records
Doomy stoner metal

Nemeziz
Gerechter Zorn

Kind of a grooving traditional metal thing. a little darker and close to thrashy stuff.

Bullet-Proof
Forsaken One
Sleaszy Rider
A bit of a melodic thrash. Catchy cool stuff.

Shahyd Legacy
Gateways
Self Released
Melodic guitar based instrumentals. Shahyd Legacy is a guitar god type guy… lots of shredding.

Binary Creed
A Battle Won
ROCKSHOTS Records
Hard rocking proggy power metal. But! Songs are all under 5 mins, so quick epic songs!

New Stuff This Week… 8/28/17

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 8/28/17
Aug 282017
 

Brendon Small
Galaktikon II: Become The Storm
Megaforce
We all know Brendon Small as the driving force behind Dethklok, and this is his 2nd album under this moniker, and with some drama around Dethklock being hung up by the Cartoon Network, this is effectively a new Dethklok album according to the band which is the same members…(gene hoglan, bryan beller, brendan small) So it’s a sort of extreme melodic death. Great stuff, and isn’t everything with Gene Hoglan on it good?

36 Crazyfists
“Death Eater” / “Better To Burn” [Single]
Spinefarm
Of all of the metalcore bands, we’ll always have a soft spot for 36 Crazyfists… they have a good heavy groove, clean vox and we had some exploring of the inner bowels of the Rave with some band members back in the day. Great to see they’re still at it and this new stuff is pretty good! Melodic, heavy, catchy and good clean production

STEELHEART
You Got Me Twisted – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Just a good solid hard rock power ballad type thing.

GWAR
Fuck this Place – radio single
Metal Blade Records
First album since Oderus died… they’ve released some covers and some stuff here and there, but this is pretty good solid and catchy metal all with that Gwar attitude!

The Black Dahlia Murder
Nightbringers – radio single
Metal Blade Records
Another metal blade single hit the inbox… some great new stuff from TBDM. Melodic, brutal, pissed off and technical too. I’ve come to like these guys more and more over the years. Good stuff.

Myrkur
“De Tre Piker” / “Ulvinde”
Relapse Records
Atmospheric rock? Clean Female vox… not quite metal. I guess I’m on the Relapse mail list for everything… and they should have skipped me on this one.

Alter Bridge
Live At The O2 Arena
Napalm Records
I can’t say I’ve been a huge fan of this band as they are more on the commercial side of hard rock, but I caught some of their live set last year and it was pretty impressive… mostly because of Myles Kennedy’s voice. So this is a live show from the UK.

FerreTT
In Through The Out Door
Independent
This sounds like it could be along the vein of Steel Panther type stuff. Fun hard rockin’ stuff that is all funny and stuff.

Paradise Lost
Medusa
Nuclear Blast USA
Doomy melodic stuff touching into maybe a deathy/black metal thing. They’ve had ups and downs and I think this is more of an Up and back to their good sounds (where there’s some heavy stuff)

The Quill
Botrn From Fire
Metalville Records
Good full sounding stoner metal type thing

Septicflesh
Codex Omega
Prosthetic Records
Brutal, technical, catchy and melodic/symphonic too. Great stuff!

Epica
The Solace System EP
Nuclear Blast USA
Well, I often compare bands TO Epica, but nothing can compare to the original. They have that fe-metal vox, but they keep it heavy too… I think a lot of bands tend to just stay more power-metal and these guys/girl are full on Epic but keep it heavy and dark too.

Motorhead
Under Cover
Motorhead Music/Silver Lining Music
Stuff that Motorhead covered over the years from tribute albums and some new recordings

Mist Of Misery
Shackles of Life
Black Lion Records
An epic and symphonic black metal type thing. Melodic, proggish good grooves too.

Ovakner
Ar/Lume
Eihwaz Recordings
This one is interesting, it’s kind of grindy death metal, but gets into some melodic stuff too, big meaty grooves

From North
From North
Downfall
Some cool melodic death with a little bit of a folk thing going on.

Nemecic
The Deathcantation
Inverse Records
This is kind of melodic death too, almost prog metal-ish. Kind of metalcore-ish a LITTLE bit, or maybe more of a Lamb of God meets melodic death? Cool stuff.

Nyss
Princesse Terre (Three Studies of Silence and Death)
Avantgarde Music
28 August 2017

Bombarder
Speed Kill LP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
A basic kind of motorhead sounding thing

Red Mountains
Slow Wander
All Good Clean Records
Some doomy stoner metal that reminds me a little bit of Kyuss

Botanist
Collective: The Shape of He to Come
Avantgarde Music
1 September 2017

Ossuary Insane
Demonize the Flesh LP
Blood Harvest
Kind of an extreme thrash / death metal type thing. production is a bit basic, giving it that kind of a “local band” feel, but the music and energy are there… cool stuff

Dutchguts / Chained To The Dead
Split CD
Horror Pain Gore Death
Dutchguts is kind an extreme stoner metal/hardcore type thing. Chained to the dead is more of a grindy grooving death metal.

TALES OF GAIA
Hypernova
Fighter Records
This is some power metal, a really high screamy over the top voice thing going on, maybe a bit of a speedier power metal like a Dragonforce

PRAISE THE FLAME
Manifest Rebellion
Caverna Abismal
Grooving and meaty and yes, melodic too… death metal! Good brutal stuff while also having those big hooks and melody

SATOR
Ordeal
Argonauta Records
A sludgey doom metal, but like, heavier. Extreme doom? Harsh vox, but a good heavy fast groove.

Band: BÖNEYARD
Album: “Below Mediocrity”
Label: Witches Brew
The description says “Black thrash n roll” and yeah, it’s kind of that, a bit punk and thrashy rock with a black metal feel in its rawness.

Terrible Old Man
Fungi From Yuggoth
MDD Records
Solid just classic hard rock / metal. Maybe a power metal AOR type thing. Cool band name

Corpsehammer
Posesión
Morbid Skull Records
Kind of raw blackened death metal. Quick 2 minute tracks, vox are a bit shouty/screamy… kind of decent stuff.

IDEAMEN
Trained When We’re Young
Rotten Records
Melodic hard rock, a bit on the prog-experimental side… I can only think of something like Faith No More to compare it to. Melodic, piano stuff, gets a little “metal” in parts too.

Band: UNDER ASSAULT
Album: Possessed By Steel
Label: Witches Brew
two songs of classic heavy Thrash metal from Paraguay

Release: Rough Grind
Four For The Road (EP)
Record label: Inverse Records
Just kind of some standard classic metal, maybe a melodic metal thing with vox that remind me a little of Motorhead.

Band: DISORDER / DISTRUPTOR
Album: Underworld
Label: Witches Brew
Disorder is from Nepal and Distruptor is from Peru. Disorder is some actually cool catchy heavy thrash. Distruptor is a bit of a heavier speedy thrash thing bordering on some deathy thrash. Both are pretty good!

Band: RAVENSIRE
Album: “Tyrant’s Dictum”
Label: Witches Brew
Two songs of some classic sounding dark metal from Portugal, a little bit of a melodic thrash-ish sound. pretty cool.

 Album Reviews  Comments Off on New Stuff This Week… 8/21/17
Aug 212017
 

 

Alpha Tiger
Alpha Tiger
SPV
This is like a power metal, but with some hammond organ stuff going on, so there’s a bit of a throwback vibe. A neat groove and catchiness of just some classic metal, and giving modern feel too. So much of it sounds familiar but really it’s a unique mix of genres. Good stuff.

EMPYREAN THRONE
CHAOSBORNE
M-THEORY AUDIO
Heavy brutal blackened death metal, maybe a bit symphonic with a Cradle of Filth/Dimmu Borgir type thing

The New Roses
One More For The Road
Napalm Records
A kind of southern bluesy hard rock thing. Catchy fun hard rockin’ stuff.

Leaving eden
Out Of The Ashes
Dark Star Records
Female fronted modern metal/hard rock. Decent catchy hooks and guitar solos… but a bit on the commercial metal side of things.

American Wrecking Company
Everything and Nothing
Pavement Entertainment
A pretty straightforward thrashy modern metal with some hardcore stuff going on too.

Akercocke
Renaissance In Extremis
Peaceville Records
Good full on death metal and melodic death and going into some proggy melodic death. This is just one 7 min single so far, but great stuff a-la Opeth.

The Haunted
Strength In Numbers
Century Media Records
From the ashes of At the Gates came the Haunted to fly the flag of Swedish Melodic death metal…After just one stinker album in there, these guys are still back to form with catchy stuff, heavy stuff, melodic and still full on aggressive too.

Pagan Altar
The Room of Shadows
Temple of Mystery
A bit of a folk/doom classic metal. I guess this band was orginally a NWOBHM band with a bootlegged underground album… well, here they are with the first album in 11 years. Good grooves.

Portrait
Burn the World
Metal Blade Records
This sounds like some really old school 80’s like pagan/black metal type stuff, maybe a bit like a Mercyful Fate… Great throwback heavy thrash type stuff, with a high screamy voice (maybe like John Arch), a dark and evil feeling.

Xanthochroid
“Of Erthe and Axen” Act I
Erthe and Axen Records
Melodic proggy hard rock, kind of like Porcupine tree, but it elevates into some symphonic melodic death too. Great dynamics, reminds me of some Opeth

Canyon of the Skull
The Desert Winter
Self-Release
One 37 Minute track of Doomy death metal.

BATTLE RAIDER
Battle Raider
Fighter Records
Big screamy metal voice on top of classic metal, kind of a power metal/thrash/classic metal thing. Cool stuff. I’m a sucker for big high screamy metal.

BLOODLUST (Australia)
At the Devil’s Left Hand
Caverna Abismal
Heavy or maybe extreme thrash. Catchy riffs, powerful drumming and vox. Vox are growly and we’ve got a kind of thrashy death metal thing going on. Cool stuff with meaty grooves.

DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT
Skepsis Part II (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
A single of some full on brutal blackened death metal, Great stuff. more please!

Eden’s Curse
Revisited
AFM Records
Power metal, decent stuff, nothing too techy, nothing too commercial or anything, just straightforward almost AOR type metal.

LENG TCH’E
Gundog Allegiance (Radio Promo)
Season of Mist
1:27 of brutal grindy death metal. Cool stuff.

Stallion
From The Dead
High Roller Records
Some classic metal with some big high screamy vox. We’re probably getting into some 80’s or 90’s hard rock sounds here.

Howling Giant
Black Hole Space Wizard Part 2
Self-Release
Grooving throwback stoner-ish doom metal. Hammond Organ, meaty riffs, but a bit depressing too.

Dirkschneider
LIVE – Back To The Roots – Accepted!
AFM Records
Udo under his last name… a live show of his old Accept stuff… music sounds almost studio quality… vocals are a little raw, but so is Udo, right? Good live album with some nice classic song with a new edge.

An Assfull Of Love
Monkey Madness
Boersma
A bit of a hard rock, maybe a bit funky alternative metal with some fun lyrics.

Serious Black
Magic
AFM Records
Heavier power metal, crunchy riffs, nice big voice with some rasp and good melodic sutff too.

Obsessed with Death
Self-Release
Meaty grooving death metal. cool stuff.

Quality classic black metal with good production, A good evil sound, it’s even catchy and of course, the good classic black metal is melodic too. Great stuff.

Leprous
Malina
InsideOut
Prog rock that gets way way proggy, maybe getting a little heavy in parts, maybe a bit jazzy, vox hearken to Freddie Mercury. Good stuff, maybe not mosh pit material.

Past, Present…Torture
Lifeforce
BRUTAL death metal! Maybe a bit grindy, but this is full on heavy as shit. And yeah! Grooves!!

Dark and doomy… slow and sludgey… a bit of a black metal feel.

This one… hmmm, extreme thrash. That catchy/gallopy thrash sound, while being faster and more growly vox.

This is some decent melodic death

Blackened death metal… yup, meat and potatoes death metal, but faster with some faster guitars and blast beats. not too bad… good melodic stuff too while being all brutal.

It’s melodic death/metalcore type stuff. Good stuff, staying heavy and heavy parts are brutal, some big fat breakdowns.
