Goatwhore - Blood For The Master

Black/Death/Thrash 08.02.2012

Goatwhore have finally seemed to find their niche. Furiously awesome...thrash?...Death n roll?...Black n roll? Who the hell knows. This is just simply awesome.

Liberteer - Better To Die On Your Feet Than Live On Your Knees

Civil War Grind 01.02.2012

Awesome grind built on great, bouncing riffs, a few melodic leads here and there, some catchy chanting...and...banjo & trumpet?

Jolly - The Audio Guide To Happiness (Part 1)

Prog 30.01.2012

Something you probably haven't stumbled across but deserves your very much in demand attention. I mean, how can you ignore an album with a title like that? Fact is, you can't. This record is backed by an actual scientific research. True story. Sometimes a bit djenty (ain't that a hot potato nowadays?), featuring cool soundscapes, often including bad ass riffs - this Jolly album is overall a beautifully structured record. If it ain't going to make you happy, it should at least make you feel good.

Taste it here!

Iron Maiden's new album is pretty sweet, guys.

Lord Vicar - Signs Of Osiris

Doom 29.01.2012

Classic doom metal doesn't get better than this. If you want an album that you will remember every single song off of, this is the one.



Terra Tenebrosa - The Tunnels

Claustrophobic 22.01.2012

A description? What? You want a description? It's simple, really. Go in a cave, a really deep one. Now get relentlessly crushed by tons of rocks. That'll do the trick.

Or, in other words, it's some dissonant avant/post/sludge/drone stuff. Or something else. But who cares, as long as it's awesome?



Japanische Kampfhörspiele - Kaputte Nackte Affen

Wacky Grindcore 21.01.2012

Sad Reminder: This is the swansong of the bizarre squad that is Japanische Kampfhörspiele.

Being both extremely brutal and fun, this album will make your head explode with its unothodox ideas and schizophrenic vocal delivery. It's not everyday you get your grindcore so forward-thinking.




Everything Went Black - Cycles Of Light

Hardcore 18.01.2012

Gritty hardcore with a slightly atmospheric edge that borders on black metal riffing from time to time.

Raw, pounding, and almost purely visceral. A great way to start off 2012.

Alrakis - Alpha Eri

Atmospheric black metal 15.01.2012

"Close your eyes, lean back; prepare yourself for liftoff. Rise out from your seat, through your ceiling, your roof, and into the sky above as Alrakis embraces you, freeing mind and body from this terrestrial realm. Soon, as you rise through the heavens, away from the reaches of the Earth, you begin a cosmic black metal journey not unlike that of Sun Of The Blind or Chaos Moon."
- Marcus

Dark Suns - Orange

Prog rock 13.01.2012

Forget Opeth, THIS is how retro prog rock is done! And despite its vintage sound, Orange still comes across as fresh and original. Fans of King Crimson, Pain of Salvation and Riverside, you know what to do!



Aesth - The Fall Of Illusions

Death Metal 13.01.2012

Here is one of the best death metal albums ever. Enjoy

The Devil's Blood - The Thousandfold Epicentre

Psychedelic Rock 09.01.2012

Take too many drugs and listen to The Devil's Blood.

A great adventurous, yet easily digestible piece of 70's style psychedelic rock, amp'd up for a modern age.

Thy Catafalque - Rengeteg

Beautiful 02.01.2012

What? Isn't "Beautiful" descriptive enough? OK, fine then, what about "avant-garde atmospheric metal with BM roots"? Yeah, that's what I thought. Beautiful is better.

And Hungarian does really sound poetic.

Flourishing - The Sum Of All Fossils

Post-Death Metal 30.12.2011

When Ulcerate emerged early this year like a Kraken from the dead oceans and turned death metal upside down with an usually innovative lunge toward a Neurosis-ian, post-death aesthetic, I for one thought it would be a one-off entity for 2011. Apparently not. Along with a smattering of others that could fall under this neologism, such as Baring Teeth, Owl and perhaps even Mitochondrion, Flourishing take more than a leaf from this burgeoning movement of a more textured approach to death metal (and post-hardcore) and manage to inject a level of variety and diversity not seen even in The Destroyers Of All (being the perfect remedy for those that found it too repetitive).

This is one record that does not deserve to slip by unnoticed.




Firewind - The Premonition

Good power metal 30.12.2011

Whenever I pick up Firewind's latest effort, Days Of Defiance, I always end up listening to this instead. Classy, polished, catchy, heavy and prog-tinged, nicely written and performed - probably as high as this band's gonna get. No cigar in 2011 for you, lads. But it's cool, this one has got enough swag in it to last for several years.
