Resurrection Day
SPV/ Steamhammer
Straightforward classic metal from these German veterans. A little bit of a gritty/thrashy edge to keep it heavier. Good stuff.

Rivers of Nihil
The Work
Metal Blade Records
24 September 2021
Doomy, proggy, melodic, hints of BTBAM where it gets really heavy, and really laid back. pretty cool .

Ozzy Osbourne
No More Tears [30th Anniversary Expanded Edition]
Epic Records
a newly found duet of the song “Hellraiser” from No More Tears which Lemmy wrote a few of the songs on… cool to hear lemmy on something “new” but familiar. cool stuff. The rest of this is good to revisit too

Self Released
Female fronted modern groove metal, a little gothy groove sound like Lacuna Coil.

Hating Life
MDD Records
Release: 25. June 2021
Classic sounding Swedish death metal, a catchy thrashy vibe while harsh and groovin’.

Wall Of Skulls
AFM Records
17 September 2021
Always one of the better power metal bands as they have a bit more metal grit to their sounds… good stuff.

Alien Weaponry
Napalm Records
Catchy down tempo grooves on this single…

Doro – Warlock
Triumph & Agony Live
Rare Diamonds Productions
I’ve never seen Doro live, and she’s always been a bit below my radar, but hearing this makes me want to see a show, high energy, and heavier than I remember… cool cool

A Pale Horse Named Death
Infernum In Terra
Long Branch Records
At first thought, it sounds like some Ozzy solo stuff, a classic metal sound, not too fast, just laid back with a little doom vibe

Signs Of The Swarm
Unique Leader Records
Brutal death metal with a bit of a deathcore slant

Grinder Blues
El Dos
Metalville Records
Dug Pinnick (King’s X) side project of good ol catchy blues hard rock type stuff… pretty cool stuff for this genre!

Harsh, dark black metal, quite an evil sound, but yet some melodic elements

Dawn of a Dark Age
Le Forche Caudine
24 September 2021
Just two tracks (21 and 16 mins each), here’s some blackened folk, epic proggressive metal stuff, a bit on the doomy side… but the flute/clarinet sounds give it that interesting folk sound

Hypocrisis Absolution
Primitive Reaction
24 September 2021
Here’s some cool black metal, classic sound, cold, dark, evil, wall of sound, but a bit of an epic catchiness… a little viking metal sound underlying. Cool stuff.

Aegrus Satanas Tecum
Primitive Reaction
24 September 2021
Dark, evil black metal, slow doomy groove, but still harsh, cold and evil!

Mandoki Soulmates
Utopia For Realists: Hungarian Pictures

Definitely not in the metal vein here. Prog rock/symphonic, jazzy, horns, that sort of stuff. one of the tracks gets a heavier jazzy/prog thing going

Abhorrent Fervor
Osmose Productions
24 September 2021
I’d say this fits into a good black metal mold. It’s dark, cold, evil sounding… But has a bit of a death metal groove too…

Deathcore, a little electro/industrial sound too.

We Butter The Bread With Butter
Das Album
AFM Records
24 September 2021
Modern metalcore type stuff… some synthy sounds to go with a metal/deathcore too. When the vox stay heavy/growled, I like it… the super clean catchy melodic stuff get a little too cheesey for me.
