Kuoleman Galleria

This grooving blackened metal. Music is kind of a melodic death/blackened melodic metal with more extreme black-ish metal vox… Almost a bit like Skeletonwitch meets Amorphis a little.

Avengers Of Eden – RADIO SINGLE
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
Bassist from Symphony X with a 2nd album of a sort of super group of prog metal, this one single is some solid heavy proggy power metal!

Grooving sort of psychedelic stoner metal.

Dreadful Fate
The Sin of Sodom
Edged Circle Productions
Take some fast and heavy trash metal and throw in a pinch of black metal, and you got yourself something super good… Just three quick songs!

Xtreem Music
A little thrash, kind of like Anthrax a bit (singer sounds like Joey B), and musically when not being thrashy, is a bit prog metal, melodic power metal prog type stuff. Production is ok, could be a bit cleaner.

O Olhar Atento da Escuridão
Harvest of Death / Signal Rex
Creepy classic black metal with basic music, shouting screamy vox, “meh” production.

Indignant Force of Great Malevolence
Signal Rex
This is some raw brutalized black metal, production is a bit raw and you’ve got some gurgling, blast beats and just overall noise

Eternal Torment
Blind to Reality
Brutal technical death metal. Great chugga chugga drumming and riffs, clean production and monster grooves

Rape Killing Murder

A grungy/sludgy extreme almost death metal type thing. I guess there’s a bit of a hardcore thing happening, with some grooves and a raw feeling

Shadow Kingdom
Basic melodic metal, a kind of classic metal with a doomy groove.

The “style” is said as “Rock n’ Roll Tales of the Dark South” It has a bit of a surfy blues feeling to it, so

This Winter Will Last Forever
Black metal with some gritty edge to it, a bit symphonic/electronic-ish (keyboards)… kind of grindy

This is some black metal, grooving old school stuff with some sort of lo-fi-ish sound.

Avantgarde Music
Laid back doom… background slooowwwww something.

Handsome Prick
Horror Pain Gore Death
Freight train of grooving brutal death metal. Good stuff. There’s like almost a little punky thrash thing going on in there too. A little Johnny Cash -like.
