New Stuff This Week…7/9/18

Obscura
Diluvium
Relapse Records
One of the originators of a djenty technical death metal… Great technical, fast, proggy, brutal… great stuff.

DevilDriver
Outlaws Till The End Vol. I
Napalm Records
I’m not a fan of country, and well, frankly not a lot of metalheads are… but apparently Devildriver members are, or are of old school country stuff, so they took to covering old country songs in the metal stylings of Devildriver… being that I like Devildriver, and cover songs, this tends to work ok… I don’t know the originals anyway…Lol

To Whom It May
The Great Filter
G4L Records
Kind of a modern alt-metal, a little bit of a prog rock thing. Melodic vox, music, not a whole of true “metal” just driving hard rock type stuff.

Blasphemy
Victory (Son of the Damned) DLP/CD/TAPE
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Wall of grindy black metal sound… a big harsh, a little lo-fi and I think there’s a little bit of a punk thing going on too.

IRON HUNTER
Mankind Resistance
Fighter Records
Standard classic metal/power metal. Good classic metal screamy vox, good ol metal backing.

Black Fast
Spectre of Ruin
Entertainment One
Heavy, catchy, melodic blackened death metal. Maybe a little like a Cradle of Filth, but a bit more “normal”

Graven Maul
Crushed Skull Moon
Redefining Darkness Records
Sludgey doomy stuff. A good groove while having a littel bit of a blackened death thing going on… but not too heavy as it’s big huge heavy meaty doom. Maybe stepping it up to get a little bit like Obituary.

Malsanctum
Malsanctum LP/CD
Iron Bonehead
More sludgey doomy post-metal noise… a few really long tracks of noise.

Firtan
Okeanos
AOP Records
Epic melodic black metal, great sound, a bit tech/proggy in the approach, brutal and heavy yet a great full melodic catchy sound.

Ratbreed
Evoke The Blaze
Inverse Records
A bit of a classic metal, Judas Priest/Dragonforce type thing, til the vox come in, then it’s some just classic melodic metal with female vox. Good stuff, but the instrumental intros seem a bit heavier than when you get into the song. Songs are still good, melodic and catchy, just not as heavy… just more “standard metal”

Temple Desecration
Whirlwinds of Fathomless Chaos LP/CD
Iron Bonehead
Blackened death… more on the blackened. Grindy brutal extreme cookie monster vox with some death metal grooves, but black metal echoes.

Pa Vesh En
A Ghost 7″ EP
Iron Bonehead
Echoey post-metal black metal noise

WOES
The Coldest Place Is Within Myself
Godbox Records
Kind of a brutal metalcore, crusty and a bit melodic, but chaotic too. Screamy vox… reminds me a little of a heavier more loose 36 Crazyfists.

Mouth Of Sauron
Hearken The Echo Of Music
Transcending Records
Brutal old school death metal with a little tech death/djent thing going on.

Nopes
Stapler
Magnetic Eye Records
A little punky southern twanged hard rock. So a good southern hard rock sound with a punk vox/attitude.

Exlibris
Innertia
Independent
This is a proggy power metal thing, clean vox, good metal edge, how about good high classic screamy metal vox? yeah! Cool keyboard stuff (hammond and others, not just boop boopy stuff) Good all around prog metal.

A.H.P.
Forakt Hat Og Død
Avantgarde Music
One 18 miinute black metal/post black metal track… and one of them is a 13 min. Burzum cover. (mostly ambient keyboardy stuff) The original is decent classic black metal stuff, mostly brutal classic harsh black metal.

Kalaallit Nunaat / Au Revoir (split)
Memories From Desolate Battlefields
This Winter Will Last Forever
Kalaallit Nunaat has a bit of a groove in their two 10 min tracks, a bit of a classic black metal. Au Revoir? Meh. Lo-fi post black metal.

Greystone Canyon
While The Wheels Still Turn
Rockshots Records
Melodic hard rock.

MIKEY CUNNINGHAM AND THE AFTERMATH
Massive Head Wound
Online MEtal Promo
As with most bands with a guys’ name and whatever, this is instrumental, good catchy meaty metal instrumentals! Problem is that the production is a bit mushy, but the point gets across… good short-ish songs with no messing around. Cool stuff.

Sinsaenum
“Sacred Martyr”
earMUSIC
New single from the post slipknot Joey Jordison’s black metal/extreme metal band. I’d say this one is a bit more on the extreme metal side than throwing a black metal label on it. Still good heavy stuff.

Release: Skyglow
Thousand Years Of Terror
Record label: Inverse Records & Grotesque Sounds
Progressive death metal, a good melodic thing, harsh vox, clean vox, a true proggy yet harsh death metal thing, yet good normal melodic stuff too.

(PRC103) AKELARRE
Decade of Desecration CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
Brutal death metal.

(PRC102) THE AFTERMATH
Vermine CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
Technical brutalcore

(PRC101) CREEPING FLESH
In Times of War CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
Classic grooving death metal.

(PRC100) TORTURER
Die in Pain CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
More of a raw old school black/death metal.

(PRC99) TYRANNO
Skulls, Horns & Lust CD
PRC MUSIC / MVD / PLANETWORKS
This is a blackened death metal with some actual grooves maybe a bit of a thrash attitude too.

Engulf
Gold And Rust
Everlasting Spew Records
Technical and brutal death metal. Three quick, down and dirty tracks with no fucking around.

Traitors Gate
Fallen
No Remorse
Classic metal, big voice, just your normal every day “metal”

Band: Voodoo Diamond
Album: Darkness Becomes Us
Label: Musicarchy Media
Kind of a classic metal/proggy/power metal thing. It’s not quite power metal as the vox have more of an edge, but there are some parts that make it seem a bit of a basic prog metal, or maybe some melodic commercial-ish type stuff. Decent stuff though.

Various Artists
Hell Night / Sweat Shoppe – Split 7″
Encapsulated Records
Hell night features Brian Fair from Shadows Fall fame… it’s a bit of a harsh metalcore, pretty raw, maybe some basic thrash going on too. Sweat Shoppe has a bit more of a punk feel.

Cassius King
Sight For Sore Eyes & Girls Got Rhythm
independent
2 songs of some groovin’ catchy funky hard rock.

Band: Into the Cave
Album: Insulters of Jesus Christ
Label: Iron, Blood & Death Corp
Old school blackened thrash… yup, it’s got that old school thrash thing going on, but also a dark black metal rawness.

Artist: Beyond Carnage
Release Title: Profane Sounds Of The Flesh
Record Label: Firecum Records
Old school chugga chugga cookie monster meat and potatoes grooving death metal. Hearkens back to some old Cannibal Corpse. great stuff.

modern metalcore stuff, screamy growly vox going to clean uptempo clean vox in the chorus… heavier parts are decent, but probably the more emo-ish melodic parts aren’t really for the ‘pit.

Another single, a bit more commercial alt-rock sounding on this one…

Spinefarm Records
Great music, catchy, melodic, accessible too, but overall for a metal band, it is accessible, and can appeal to a wide audience

This is some russian hard rock/alt metal type stuff. Fairly commerical metal sounding, good catchy stuff, but probably a bit too “alt” for the Mosh Pit…
