Ghost Ship Octavius - Ghost Ship Octavius

Melodic/progressive metal 18.04.2015

Matt Wicklund and Van Williams make a winning team in Ghost Ship Octavius's debut album. Their talent to produce intricate, hard-hitting songs combined with the soaring performance of vocalist Adōn Fanion reaches epic proportions. Dark in atmosphere and themes, Ghost Ship Octavius borrows elements like groovy riffs à la Nevermore and Communic, and the melodic virtuosity of the likes of Darkwater. Add outstanding solos and a grandiose sound to the equation, and you have a very auspicious start for this band.

Dødheimsgard - A Umbra Omega

Avant-garde black with an industrial touch 16.04.2015

If you haven't heard it yet, you're missing out. Dødheimsgard raise the creativity bar for experimental bands everywhere. Call it avant-garde, call it black, call it industrial, or call it post. This is a musical milestone that combines Dødheimsgard's unique extreme sound with a wide variety of influences and an unequalled vocalist duo. If metal is more for you than melodic riffs and blast beats, this is your album.

Santo Rostro - II: The Bleed

Spanish Stoner/Sludge 13.04.2015

Santo Rostro's sophomore effort is more riff-driven, mostly mid-paced stonerrific jams with power and just a dash of groove. Worthy of checking out? My advice, "Hunt It Down."

Deadworld - Deadworld

Blackened deathcore 13.03.2015

Some pretty bitchin' deathcore. Imagine good deathcore, kinda down-tempo, with some old school bm-style production.

Ethereal Shroud - They Became The Falling Ash

Black Metal 12.03.2015

"They Became The Falling Ash", the product of a one man project, is a great album. Not only worthy of checking out, possibly a brilliant soundtrack for nocturnal explorations for the creepier parts of town or country near you.

Death Karma - The History Of Death & Burial Rituals Part I

Transcendental black/death 23.02.2015

Infernal Vlad seems to like death. A lot. Death Karma is a new band that sees the Cult Of Fire front man teaming up with the band's drummer for a musical spectacle that can only be described as stunning. Black and death metal combine seamlessly, in a way that is both thundering and bang-able, but also eerily hypnotic and surprisingly catchy with its sense of groove and enhancement from Vlad's distinct sense of melody. If these guys needed any further proof that they're incredibly skilled composers, this is it. Early AOTY contender.

Shepherd - Stereolithic Riffalocalypse

Stoner/Sludge 10.02.2015

It's always weird listening to the tunes of an MS user. You are afraid they'll suck and then you'll have to let a cool dude know his tunes suck. No worries here, just crunchy riffs and tasty tunes. Really solid album. How solid? The best thing to come from India since chicken Tikka Masala.

Beardfish - +4626-COMFORTZONE

Prog 30.01.2015

Beardfish excel with their new album. It is an exercise in rhythms but it's also so much more. It will take you places because it's a bloody fantastic prog album. It is truly exciting music.

Vise Versa - Living A Lie

Alternametal 26.01.2015

The fact that Franky Costanza is the drummer should be enough to convince you to check this out. If that's not good enough then Jon Howard is also the vocalist. If neither of these 2 facts mean anything to you then you just must not know who those guys are.

Senmuth - Dakhmas

Industrial Siberian Khatru Metal 12.01.2015

What would happen if Genghis Khan traveled in time to our current era, stole Fredrik Thordendal's guitar, and then played an electronic symphony for himself back in the 1200s with it and his own little folk instruments while his hordes swept across the steppes of Russia? Why, Senmuth's Dakhmas would happen, of course.

Kowai - Dissonance

symphonic metal 09.01.2015

Like leaves that fall between two trees grown together in the majestic beauty that is the chance and fate of nature, Kowai's Dissonance covers the listener in poetic sorrow and somber symphonic metal melodies. Lush keyboards, calming guitars, and vocals with lyrics that plead for escape, Kowai's debut offers a wintry embrace that warms the shivering soul with a cathartic sense of pride.
