Release: Eilera – Waves
Record label: Inverse Records
Genre: Rock / Metal / Folk … a lot of times when you see these three together, you think, oh, cool, could be some heavy stuff, with a hurdy gurdy or something mixed in with dirty deathy grooves… nope, this is more folk first, then rock and metal?? nah.

Doomy sludgy death metal.

Psychonaut
Unfold The God Man
Pelagic
Release date: Friday, March 6th 2020
This has a bit of a slugey psychedlic thing going on, a bit doomy, they say post metal, but it’s not quite as drony and boring as a typical post metal thing, so I wouldn’t throw it in that category… it’s got a little progressive thing happening as it goes a lot of different directions and is pretty laid back.

Azure Emote
The Third Perspective
Selfmadegods
Release date: Friday, March 6th 2020
Technical and proggy blackened death… a pinch of a folk sound (mostly in some of the keyboard and vocal background parts), but overall, pretty cool stuff.

They call it “Dark roasted rock” It has a classic just “metal” thing with some clean-ish vox, a pinch of power metalish tempo… a bit of a catchy groove.

they call this post-hardcore/sludge… it has a bit more of a stoner metal sludge/groove… I guess I’m not sure what post-hardcore is… but usually anything with “post” in it is not in my realm of liking. This has a catchy groove with some cool stoner things going on too.
