The Graviators - Motherload

Stoner Doom 03.09.2014

Old school style Sabbath/Pentagram worshippin' doom. Do I hear Jimi somewhere in the mix?

Derivative but awesome.

Striker - City Of Gold

Speed, thrash metal 27.08.2014

METAL up your arse !!!

And here I thought Striker couldn't top their 2012 release Armed To The Teeth. And then they record this one. Any fan of the genre, or those who like headbanging to the max should will enjoy City Of Gold.

Mortals - Cursed To See The Future

Sludge metal 26.08.2014

Albums like Mortals' Cursed To See The Future make an instant impact and grip you. Its sludge is dense with black metal leanings. The songs are long and perfectly structured because the transitions are smart. While there are moments of trance, it's the piercing vocals which guide you through the hostility and gloom of the music. Melodious yet aggressive, Cursed To See The Future has filth in good measure. The slimy and cavernous riffs easily lull you into the abyss.

Take the plunge!

Trap Them - Blissfucker

Grindcore/Hardcore 24.08.2014

As always, Trap Them deliver their filthy tsunami of grind-infused hardcore to the table and it's as delicious as ever. Fire it up and play it loud.

Listen here.

IQ - The Road Of Bones

Light progressive rock 23.08.2014

The rhythm remains the same, as members change. IQ has always been one of those bands that fell into the medium of obscurity for me, strictly because they always played on the fringe of prog worship and never feigned actual progression. That was, until The Road of Bones.

Ethereal Riffian - Aeonian

Progressive stoner doom 23.08.2014

A forward-thinking approach to the stoner doom genre that emphasizes complex song structures and hypnotic textural riffing. Lose yourself in the vivid landscapes of Aeonian right here.



Fantom Warior - Morbid Invasion

Thrash 21.08.2014

Here's an oldie that's just been reissued and that's guaranteed to wreck some shit and stuff.

Crimson Shadows - Kings Among Men

Extreme Power Metal 17.08.2014

An unpretentious mix of DragonForce, Amon Amarth and mid-career Ensiferum.

Extreme power metal done right.

Arkona - Явь

Folk Metal 15.08.2014

It took me a few listens to let this album fully sink in, but Arkona wisely drops their light-hearted, catchy hooks to bring us an album with a much better flow and sense of focus. That doesn't mean they aren't as dynamic, progressive-minded and aggressive as ever though. These Russian folk metal giants are still on top of their game.

Blood Of The Black Owl - A Banishing Ritual

Sioux Drone 14.08.2014

The one man project of Chet W. Scott, Blood Of The Black Owl is a hypnotizing journey through foreboding sounds and monolithic landscapes. Native American themes abound, with use of wind flute and some drony, chant-like vocals to help heighten the vibe and make you feel as though you're being banished by the ritual of the album's title. This album may be four years old, but screw it: if you're down with the whole drone/dark ambient nonsense, this is definitely one you need in your life.

Begin the daze.

Into Orbit - Caverns

Post 10.08.2014

The New Zealand Duo craft some instrumental post-rock/metal goodness. Constructs and build-ups are well executed and enjoyable if standard format, but the crescendos really help make this a bi-polar bit of post-fun.

Entombed A.D. - Back To The Front

Death N Roll 27.07.2014

Hey! These guys sound a lot like Entombed!

Horn Of The Rhino - Summoning Deliverance

Sludge/thrash 25.07.2014

These Spanish conquistadors are back in action. Continuing in the direction of Grengus, Summoning Deliverance is Horn Of The Rhino at perhaps their most violent yet. Gone are the days of the more relaxed vibes of their earlier material, in favor of some fast and nasty sludge, with a much more snarling type of vocal delivery from Javier Galvez, all wrapped up with some pleasantly surprising extreme metal elements. Crushing in every sense of the word.

Listen on Bandcamp, and cry to yourself over the label deciding that only streaming select tracks would be a good idea.
