New Stuff This Week…5/11/15

Heavy groovin’ throwback 70’s stoner metal. Just a great groove, catchy and laid-back vibe.

Lorna Shore
“Grimoire” (single)
I guess I would call this brutal core.  a bit math metal in parts, proggy, sludgey, metalcore-ish, but all really cool stuff.

Sentinel Apocalypse
Unique Leader
Techy metalcore… more on the melodic death side of things, but enough of that “core” sound with the chugga chugga/meedly meedly stuff a breakdown type thing here and there.

Secret Garden
Always been one of the better power metal bands… and probably the best from South America, right?   Now that their guitar player has been recruited in Megadeth, I’m sure the spotlight will be on them a little bit more.  Haven’t really had too much good power metal coming in lately, and to have this and the Kamelot as a decent one two punch is nice.

The Seventh Life path
Napalm Records
Kind of epic fe-metal, along the lines of Epica… but not quite as leaning into the melodic death.  It gets deathy in parts, but mainly keeps it a bit more gothy… maybe a little more Lacuna Coil-ish… but yeah, it stays heavy enough to keep it worthy of the Mosh Pit! hah.

Civil War
Gods & Generals
Napalm Records
Seemingly standard power metal featuring former members of Astral Doors and Sabaton.  So it’s got a bit of an epic metal feel, but still a bit of some raw metal power going on too.  Definitely ripe for singing along.

Last Great Nation
The New American
New American Records
This is a bit like a Five Finger Death Punch muscially… (not in a bad way – just something to compare) catchy accessible metal, but this seems a bit more complex with proggy elements.

Secrets of the Sky
Metal Blade Records
Some long doomy stuff, some stuff that sounds like Down, and some melodic stoner metal type stuff too.

Sic Lvceat Lvx
Prosthetic Records
Kind of a blackened death metal with some doomy stuff too.

Gutter Instinct
The Insurrection
Prosthetic Records
Some cool basic thrashy death metal.  Only 4 tracks, but they are rippin’.

Journey to the Depths TAPE
Blood Harvest
Classic black metal… fast, evil, brutal and catchy too.

Luciferian Rites
When the Light Dies
Creepy Old school black metal, vocals are screamed like they are coming from the pits of hell… so yeah, good and evil… brutal too.

In The Fields They Bled
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
Blackened death metal, fast, brutal, in your face and maaaybe a bit catchy… did I mention brutal?  yeah.  good stuff.

On one hand, it’s thrashy, on the other hand, it’s stoner/doomy in some parts, and then sounds like Obituary too.  cool stuff.

Demo ’87 / Reh. ’88 DLP
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Old school thrashy black metal… demo from 1987 and it sounds like they dug out the old tape.  Meh.  (sounds like there’s something cool in there, but modern me can’t get past crappy old production)

Code: End
Classic grooving black metal.

Svart Records
Not quite metal… sounds like some 70’s tv theme music.  Groovin’ Finnish(?) lyrics/vocals and hammond organs with basic rock stuff.  definitely not mosh pit material.

Drifting Towards the Ancients
Doomy/deathy depressing stuff.

Sole Freedom
Scarlet Records
Proggy power metal, reminds me a bit of some older Dream Theater.

Doom Snake Cult
Love Sorrow Doom LP/CD
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Guess what?  This band is doom metal!   (with seemingly black metal style vocals)

Decent black metal, those classic cold sounding guitars, abrasive vocals, melodic and catchy in parts, and evil/brutal too… yeah, even a bit proggy technical as well.

Dunkelheit Produktionen
Fast, deathy black metal from Indonesia!  Music has decent production, the vocals are a bit raw and harsh… Cool brutal metal here.

New Stuff This Week…5/4/15

I have to say, as power metal bands go, these guys might be at one of the top spots.  They got the epic metal thing going on, it’s proggy, their new singer is still killing it, songs are catchy, heavy enough, but yet still power metal/proggy enough for the discerning metal nerd (like me) to enjoy.

“Full Body Xplosion” (single)
Mystery Box
Heyyyy I remember these guys, well, I remember the name, and that I liked it, but nothing else.  haha… so listening… it reminds me a bit of Skeletonwitch, heavy, thrash, catchy stuff.

Nashville Pussy
Ten Years of Pussy
Basically a “best of” compilation with a bonus live cd. Don’t know where to start with Nashville Pussy?  Start here.  Already a fan?  well, here’s a good car stereo jam with a bonus disc.

Nuclear Blast USA
Fun bouncy folk metal with a little bit of attitude.

Dawn Of The Nine
Nuclear Blast USA
Long time Swedes are back with some viking death metal goodness.  Great melodic death, heavy, evil-ish sounding and fist-pumping fun.

No Name
Mafer Records
Traditional metal with a bit of an edge, production is a bit raw… some catchy groove metal going on too.

Inside The Vertigo
Jeff Scott Soto’s new solo project/band… pretty solid classic metal going on here.  Catchy groovin’ metal going on too.  Kind of some solid rock anthem type stuff.

Melodic a bit thrashy and maybe even a lil bit proggy too.  A bit more mature than their EP from 5 years ago.

The Bloodline
We Are One
Century Media Records
This is basically the band Dirge Within with a new name.  Heavy groove metal… singer is from Divine Heresy.  A bit on the Solid Rock side of things, but I think they lean a bit heavier with some melodic stuff too.

Satan’s Wrath
Die Evil
Metal Blade Records
Blackened thrash… a bit raw, some melodic stuff, yet fuckin evil.

Graveyard Séance (EP)
Saturnal Records
Only two tracks, but some old school doomy black metal stuff.  Decent production, some groove, evilness and stuff.

The Lidocaine
Chicken Cage of HORROR
Traditional melodic metal with a little bit of a folk feel (vocally) and just pinch of thrashy stuff going on.

This Terrible Burden
Argonauta Records
Drone Doom Noise.  The title says it all on how it felt for me to have to listen to it.  sorry guys.

Cave of Swimmers
Stoner metal with some pretty long songs, vocals are almost a little bit like some System of a Down Serj type stuff.  Or maybe a 70’s version of it?

Feanor Omega
Black metal, a bit atmospheric but old school melodic type stuff.

Perdition (Deluxe Edition)
Imminence Records
Melodic death metal leaning more on the brutal side of things… this is one of the better “other” picks lately.  Some proggy death stuff going on too.

Hammer King
Kingdom of the Hammer King
Cruz Del Sur Music
Power metal, sounds a little bit like Accept, but maybe with more stadium rock hits?

No Victim CD
Horror Pain Gore Death
Fast, brutal in your face death metal.  BOOM.

My Grimace
Grim Serenades
inverse Records.
A bit of a classic death metal thing, but also a little bit of black metal all with a lil bit of melodic stuff.

Svart Records
Psychedelic hard rock with a 70’s stoner metal feel.

Domovoyd CD / 2LP
Svart Records
Drony doomy meh.

Old school wall of grindy sound black metal with some decent evil melodies

Mercy Brown
Mercy Brown
Blackened Death metal with a big fat brutal groove going on… but then some fe-metal vocals!?  whoa,  wasn’t expecting that… but I guess it’s not tooo bad.  It’s differnet and adds a certain dynamic to it.

Visions of Speed and Thunder compilation
Self REleased (Online metal promo)
Classic metal with great guitar work… a compilation of some “hits”

Spuren Der Vergangenheit (Re-Issue)
Gothy hard rock

Dys Inbunden
One with morbidity, the opus misanthropy
Liflätinn Productions
Good modern black metal, heavy, catchy, evil… all that cool good stuff you want from black metal, right?
