DEFTONES
Ohms
Warner Music
A new album from these guys… honestly I’ve never really been a fan. Their last album was a bit promising, this one seems to be back to old form, melodic with that nu-metal sound and the classic Chino vox.

Nasty
Menace
Century Media
metalcore and nu-metal with a brutal sound, big breakdown stuff…

Mr Bungle
“Eracist”
Ipecac Recordings
I mean, Mr Bungle was already at their own level… adding Scott Ian and Dave Lombardo to the mix makes it just not fair. This song seems to keep it pretty metal and still keeping a little of the quirky Mr Bungle sound.

Undeath
Acidic Twilight Visions
Prosthetic Records
Brutal Death metal, with some big grooves and headbangning goodness

Black Satellite
”Void”
Self Released
Here’s a bit of a modern metal thing

ANAAL NATHRAKH
Endarkenment
Metal Blade
I’ve always said this is “kitchen sink” metal, because they throw in EVERYTHING… fast, brutal, technical, black metal, growls, screams, speed, groove, melody, intensity. No signs of letting up

SIX FEET UNDER
Nightmares of the Decomposed
Metal Blade
25 years of six feet under… still at it, still doing some good rippin’ death metal, this is a bit more heavy and brutal as Jack Owen is now in the fold. Vocals are classic Chris Barnes… his vox are a bit cashed, but that’s the style and it works… a few of his classic pig squeals too. Heck even some cool melodic guitar soloing too

Tallah
Matriphagy
Earache Records
A new take on a Slipknot sound… maybe throw a little Deftones/Dillinger Escape Plan in there too, a lot of energy and angst.

Second to Sun
Leviathan
Self-Release

I’d say this is melodic blackened death. While it does have a main black metal sound, it isn’t quite so harsh and cold… theres a fuller sound with the more traditional black metal vox.
