Execration
Return to the Void
Metal Blade Records
Blackened death metal with a bit more on the black metal side. Good heavy edge, maybe a bit heavy slayer and melodic death stuff too.

Bloodclot
Up in Arms
Metal Blade Records
Kind of a heavy punked up thrashing hardcore type stuff. Features former Danzig/QOTSA and CroMags members. cool stuff.

Integrity
Howling, For The Nightmare Shall Consume
Relapse
Heavier thrashy hardcore, they’ve been around a long long time and still have a good raw yet cohesive sound.

RIVER BLACK
River Black
Season of Mist
A bit of a downtempo doomy death-ishmetal. Big meaty grooves, shouting/growly vox.

Season of Mist
Doomy melodic metal with a bit of a meedly black metal guitar, clean vox.

In The Presence of Wolves
Of Two Minds, Stages 1-2: The Ape And The Cage
Self-Released
Melodic prog rock/metal. Takes a little while to get going but once it does, you don’t want to stop listening to hear what they’re going to do next, it has a little Fair to Midland thing going, but then maybe hits into full Dream Theater type stuff (without the cheese)

Stone Sour
Hydrograd
Roadrunner
Well, Stone Sour hasn’t really been the Mosh Pit’s thing… maybe a song here or there.. this has some catchy fun tracks on it, seems to be more laid back. Some songs seem heavier and cool too… I’m digging a lot of the stuff on here

Next To None
Phases
EMP
Well, this one doesn’t mess around much, a bit slipknot, a bit prog… some like, beautiful piano passages all mixed in with a proggier heavier (good) Slipknot type stuff. Heavy, and catchy and complex… and kind of amazing that they’re almost all still teenagers. The only knock on it, is the clean vox get a little emo-mall-core ish in parts.

APOTHESARY
ACCEPT LOSS FOREVER
M-THEORY AUDIO
Brutal yet catchy grooving death metal. They came through town last year the year before opening for some 5 band bill… and I missed them… this is good stuff, it’s not just death metal/death core… there’s some neat almost proggy stuff going on.

Decapitated
Anticult
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

Fragile Mortals
The Dark Project
Bumblefoot Music
A little bit of a rap-metal, nu-metal, but kind of a solid rock catchy commercial metal type thing too… and maybe a tiny bit industrial. . not too bad.

12 Stones
Picture Perfect
Cleopatra Records

Napalm Records
A little goth and hard rock… a bit like a hard rocked up Volbeat.

God Root
Salt And Rot
Horror Pain Gore Death
Kind of doom/post metal

This is a bit of a “Black n roll” but doomy post metal too. Some moments of good grooves and deathy stoner metal… but mostly long depressing songs.

Cosmic Man
Svart Records
A little bit of a doom and stoner metal thing going on… Decent energy, so it’s not all depressing.

Jun 242017
 

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Murder Of The Universe
ATO
Kind of a folk metal, experimental rock thing, maybe a little stoner metal feel too. It’s a bit out there, but kind of catchy, and the track listing is kind of messed up, a lot of really short tracks and probably part of a story or something I’m too lazy to really dig in to.

Powerflo
Powerflo
New Damage
A sort of nu metal thing crossing a guy from Fear Factory, Biohazard and Cypress Hill. Good stuff, a good hardcore feel with a bit of a rap metal thing… good catchy stuff.

The Interbeing
Among The Amorphous
Long Branch
Proggy metalcore type stuff… a little djent

KMFDM
Yeah!
EarMusic
Well, you know what you get here, techno-electronic stuff with a bit of guitar… i’ll pass to Something Wonderful.

Double Crush Syndrome
Die For Rock ‘N’ Roll
Metalville Records
This is a basic hard rock with some fun party type lyrics. S

Billion Dollar Babies
The Game (EP)
Metalville Records
Catchy gothy electronicified metal. A bit like a Zombie/manson feeling with that great catchy sound.

The Acacia Strain
Gravebloom
Rise Records
Kind of a little doomy dark feeling on this metal/brutalcore type thing. Heavy and catchy in parts, a little dark but technical too.

Origin
Unparalleled Universe
Nuclear Blast USA
Crazy fast and technical brutal death metal. This is just a single so far, but I’m sure the rest is just as sick.

VULPUS
Certitude
Pest Production
Stars off kind of atmospheric and doomy black metal, but then really just getting into some melodic proggy black metal with some death metal type stuff. A mixture of vocal styles… but overall, classic black metal (but with good production)

PERISHED
Kark
ATMF
BLackened death metal… oh maybe melodic blackened death metal? Yeah. Good stuff. Mostly black metal though!

Signal Rex / De Essentia Diaboli
Two long songs of classic black metal.

Well, you never know what you’ll get with INsideOut records… mostly prog rock type stuff… this one is ambient background sounds with some female singing… yeah, no.

WOLVENGUARD
ELEMENTAL RECLAMATION
LABEL: INDEPENDENT
Just this band name had me thinking it’d be a blackend death metal with a gritty edge to it, and, yup, it’s all there in the name! A good groove, not totally brutal and not totally evil. Basically a more gritty melodic death metal. (3 songs)

PERSECUTORY
Towards The Ultimate Extinction
Label: Godz Ov War Productions
Must be the week of blackened death metal! This has a little bit of a thrash undertone… more shouty harsh vox and a raw death metal thing going on, but definitely a black metal attitude.

Continuing our pattern this week… more blackened death metal… this time with more melodic death type stuff happening. Good guitar solo type stuff. growly vox

This is death metal, good basic stuff, big meaty grooves, freight train drumming.

Deadcase
For The Violent

A bit of a death core death metal, with some kind of neat groove breaks, which I guess would have to make it a little technical. Pretty much heavy but with cool other stuff and different experimental type stuff going on.

Dead Cross
“Seizure And Desist” [Single]
Ipecac
This is pretty decent heavy metal, a bit hardcore/metalcore and melodic death-ish. This is that project with Dave Lombardo and Mike Patton. This first single has EAS alert tones in it, so technically it’s illegal to play on the radio. I’ll try to make a better radio edit.

Decapitated
“Earth Scar” [Single]
Nuclear Blast
Heavy, technical-ish, a bit more thrashy than they used to do…Great riffs, catchy and kinda brutal-thrash.

Goatwhore
Vengeful Ascension
Metal Blade Records
Grooving, catchy, brutal, abrasive vox.. great stuff as always! Glad to have new material!

RavenEye
Hate – Radio Edit
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Catchy hard rock.

Vintersorg
Till Fjalls del II
Napalm Records
Epic melodic folky black metal. Sequal to the 1998 album. The band is pretty much one guy and he really has this thing down. Good melodic stuff, heavy parts, epic stuff, folk stuff, all working together.

Dying Fetus
Wrong One To Fuck With
Relapse Records
Well, the name of the album says it all, these guys do brutal death metal right and this album is no exception. I didn’t realize this was the first album in about 5 years. time flies! Great technicality, super fast and brutal. great stuff!

Municipal Waste
Slime And Punishment
Nuclear Blast USA
Fast and raw thrash, but maybe with a bit more of a punk edge to it. Songs are fast and furious and quick & to the point.

Currents
The Place I Feel Safest
SharpTone Records
Kind of a djenty heavier metalcore. Math metal type stuff. Melodic in parts, full of low end too.

Days of Jupiter
New Awakening
Metalville Records
Melodic metal, a bit proggy, kind of catchy cool stuff, a bit laid back, maybe commercial-ish (relative to the Mosh Pit of course — when I mean this, I am opining that it should fit on commercial hard rock radio greatly!)

Broken Hope
Mutilated And Assimilated
Century Media Records
second album since their reforming… first in 4 years… great brutal death metal. Great grooves, cookie monster vox… glad they’re back.

Arcadea
Arcadea
Relapse
Gonna be lazy and copy/paste from the label’s bio, because it says it all! Here: “Featuring Brann Dailor (Mastodon), Core Atoms (Zruda) and Raheem Amlani (Withered), Arcadea is trio of galactic space warriors, whose prophetic songs tell the stories of space travel and celestial battles 5 billion years in the future where galaxies have collided, leaving catastrophic disorder in its wake as war is waged among gods and planets.” So there’s only keyboards and drums and vocals. Quite different… kind of a Mastodon without guitars, really. Very space sounding with the keyboards. Interesting

Projected
Reload (Single)
RatPak Records
A heavy edge to this melodic hard rock kind of metal type stuff. just like the one above with the heavier edge, but should fit well in commercial radio. Cool stuff though.

Moribundo
Raíz Amarga
Satanath Records
Doomy death metal, a little of that melodic doom type stuff, and then melodic type stuff, and the heavy parts are pretty good and brutal. (long songs) seems to be in spanish

Onryo
Muto
Everlasting Spew Records
A bit death metal, and metal/brutal core type stuff. Good stuff, no fucking around.

ASHCLOUD
Kingdom of the Damned
Xtreem Music
Dooomy brutal blackened deaath metal.

THE CHANT
Approacher
Lifeforce
Atmospheric ambient alternative rock.

HOUR OF 13
Salt The Dead: The Rare And Unreleased (CD, DLP)
Shadow Kingdom
An old school doomy metal throwback… a bit like a stoner metal sabbath/Trouble type thing

SKELETHAL
Of the Depths… (CD, LP, TAPE)
Hells Headbangers
Good old classic death metal. A tiny bit of a grindy feel along with maaaaaybe a little blackened death. Good stuff.

SHADOWFLAG
THE DELUSION MACHINE
LABEL: INDEPENDENT
Blackened death metal, good production, good catchy hooks and brutal with melody.

Pristine
Ninja
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Classic stoner-ish rock with female vox. Great stuff, just maybe not for the mosh pit.

Father Befouled
Desolate Gods
Dark Descent Records
Blackened doomy death metal. Dark and evil sounding.

MY REGIME
Deranged Patterns
Scarlet Records
I’d have to say this falls into the extreme thrash category, bordering into some death metal. Reminds me a little of Kreator.

BAD KARMA (U.S.)
Death Has No Calling Card (CD)
Shadow Kingdom
This is some good stuff too, a raw-ish heavy thrash, a full low end, raw vox. Cool stuff.

LES CHANTS DU HASARD
Les Chants du Hasard
I, Voidhanger Records
Doomy orchestral post-metal. Creepy and dark, but maybe just a little too post-metal out there for me.

ORDEM SATÂNICA
Monte da Lua
Signal Rex
Lo-fi black metal. NEXT.

Insatia
Phoenix Aflame
Pitch Black Records
Female fronted hard rockin’ metal type stuff. a bit goth-like, maybe a bit like a more clean sung/no guy vox Lacuna Coil.

FINAL COIL
PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY
LABEL: WORM HOLE DEATH
Doomy alt rock. meh.

DIABLERY/SHADOWCRAFT
Entropy
Black Market Metal Label
Diablery is some good classic black metal type stuff. Shadowcraft is some good melodic blackened death metal. Kind of cool to finaly get a “split” EP that has good stuff from both bands.

HELSLAVE
Divination
Black Market Metal Label
Great brutal death metal with maybe a tiny bit of a blackened death thing going on.

Wolves Attack!!
Piss On Everything
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
A raw metal core grindy punk thrash kitchen sink. Decent stuff, just a little of everything on the raw side of metal.

REC/ALL
Rec/All
Self Released
Kind of a classic metal, melodic metal. Clean vox, a bit of a 90’s AOR vocal sound, otherwise, just classic hard rocking stuff.

Undergang
Misantropologi
Dark Descent Records
Grooving brutal death metal. big time cookie monster gurgles, and phat heavy brutal grooves

Prezir
Contempt
Self-Release
Raw classic blackened black metal…. yeah, blackended black! It’s a tiny bit thrashy, but kind of low-fi. Not tooo awfully low-fi that it’s ruined, you can tell there’s some good classic evil black metal stuff going on.

Burn River Burn
Neüstonia
Self Released
A good classic stoner metal thing! Great grooves or just some good meaty hard rock.

Jaw Bones
Wrongs on a Right Turn
Self Released
This is a bit like that Burn River Burn above… great grooves, a little stoner metal ish. Catchy hard rock with a little edge.

DAWN OF MORGANA
Revelations EP
Self Released
Melodic death metal with some operratic female vox to go back with the death metal growls. Kind of an epic metal feeling musically too.

SYNTHETIC
Here Lies the Truth
Self Released
Kind of a melodic death but more on the melodic side, a bit of an industrial electronic

Hitwood
As A Season Bloom
Self Released
Melodic kind of almost acoustic rock. meh.

The Father of Serpents
Age of Damnation
Label: Satanath Records
Mostly death metal, with some melodic grooves, but then getting into a bit of a gothy doom thing too.

Cloud Rat / Disrotted
Split
Halo of Flies / Dry Cough Records
Both of these are post-metal doomy stuff with some black and death metal. Just two tracks, and each over 18 mins long. ugh.
