Kind of classic metal, a bit more of a dark edge, clean vox, a little bit of power metal too.

ZOMBI
Breakthrough & Conquer
Relapse
A kind of basic hard rock instrumental (single)

Devildriver
“Keep Away From Me”
Napalm Records
They just announced a 2 album set, one this year and one next year with a single… this is it… a bit of a down tempo, but still heavy, just not super fast, big meaty grooves. Cool stuff.

Jack Russell’s Great White
Acoustic Bites
Cleopatra Records
It’s acoustic, but you do have the right guy doing the voice, and the songs all work, all of the good classics… but, acoustic and “Mosh Pit” are not always a good pair….

SLAUGHTER TO PREVAIL
“Demolisher”
Sumerian
The name of the song descrbes it well, it’s demolishing! Brutal, technical and brutal again. pinch of melodic black metal and has that “sumerian” sound too.

VEIL OF MAYA
Outsider
Sumerian
Another single… some technical metalcore, with a bit of a melodic modern metalcore type stuff going on too.

Grave Digger
Fields Of Blood
Napalm Records
A sort of epic pirate power metal. ALways pretty solid stuff from these guys.

The Wise Man’s Fear
Valley Of Kings
SharpTone Records
Starts off as some brutal deathmetal then gets a bit into a more modern metal core, clean chorus/melodic death type sound.

Behemoth
A Forest
Metal Blade Records
29 May 2020
An ep with a cover of the Cur’s “A Forest” of course, as you would have hoped, it’s a LOT heavier, done in the normal brutal style of Behemoth. (that’s how you do a cover!) rounded out by a live version and a couple more tracks

BLOOD STAR
The Fear (7″ EP, TAPE)

Both are some kind of gore-grind.. Shivers has some decent production, Nauseator is a bit more raw.

Heinous / Fluids
Snuffed / Torture Euphoric Split

Heinous is some pretty good grind, solid… Fluids is a bit more dark and doom/death/sludge
