Cephalic Carnage - Misled By Certainty

Experimental death-grind 07.09.2010

Cephalic Carnage is the kind of trip you can't make sober. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll whoe. You'll whoa. You'll dance the night away in trance... only to wake up in a dumpster five hours later.

God, I ♥ progressive disco.

Mares Of Thrace - The Moulting

Sludge 07.09.2010

Definitely a grower of an album. Jagged aggression and spine crushing grooves makes The Moulting one hell of an engrossing listen. Memorable enough to be...well, memorable, yet enough forgettable parts to make each listen a new experience with fun stuff/cool riffs you didn't notice before.

Mar De Grises - Streams Inwards

post doom 02.09.2010

The Chilean masters of prog-post doom have returned with their third, much anticipated full-length. The approach is similar to prior albums, in incorporating prog and post metal as well as ambient influences into their doom. It's appealing on emotional and cerebral levels. Quite possibly 2010's best release to date.

Edenbridge - Solitaire

Symphonic 01.09.2010

This is what symphonic metal is all about! Inspiring lyrics and guitar solos that lead you down the road to personal empowerment and self-discovery, and vocals that are polished, refined, and beautiful. Sometimes, reaching for the sky can mean actually grabbing hold of it.

Battle Of Mice - A Day Of Nights

Post-Metal 31.08.2010

Exactly one year ago, post-metal "super-group" Battle Of Mice broke up. Not enough Kleenex boxes can describe the tragedy of this event, as they really could have accomplished so much more together...

To commemorate this sad anniversary, I want you to play the band's only full-length album over and over and over again, and be stunned by its many layers of sheer brilliance. Sleep and dream...

God Is An Astronaut - Age Of The Fifth Sun

Instrumental Post-Rock 24.08.2010

This is an album that is as awesomely relaxing as it is uplifting. Perfectly suited for a non-metal coffee break!

Angelus Apatrida - Clockwork

Thrash! Thrash! Thrash! 17.08.2010

Why re-invent the wheel, when you can keep it classy and old school? This is solid and entertaining thrash, with a certain old-and-thus-good Megadeth caliber. You should really give these guys a shot if you're remotely into thrash.

Kvelertak - Kvelertak

Black metal + hardcore punk + rock'n'roll = blackcore. Or black'n'punk'n'roll. Or something like that. 13.08.2010

A fucking explosive beast of an album! It doesn't get more badass than this! If you can listen to "Ulvetid" (featuring Hoest of Taake) without totally flipping out, you must be quite dead already. See that green play button below? Click it NAO!

And their live shows are supposed to be even more insane! Catch 'em on their European tour with Converge and Kylesa or the other one with Coliseum and Bison B.C. if you know what's good for ya! I know I will.



Lacrimas Profundere - The Grandiose Nowhere

Gothic metal 10.08.2010

"This is so unexpected. We got ALL the votes? Wow.

Thanks goes out to the bitch that inspired this heartfelt and sorrowful album. Your fine sense for melodrama will for always reflect in the somber and emotive atmosphere of this majestic album. Also thanks to our singer Vitacca who really carries this album with his distressing vocals.

Peace."

-- Lacrimas Profundere's acceptance speech during the Metal Storm Awards 2010 Gala, March 2011.

I Shalt Become - Poison

Atmospheric / symphonic black metal 06.08.2010

If you like violins and distorted guitars, blastbeats and screams...
If you like grim poetic mysticism and emotionally charged art...
I Shalt Become is the band for you.

And if you've waited for what seems like a lifetime for S. Holliman to achieve his potential with I Shalt Become, while you grew sick of release after release of "depressive masterpieces" from bandwagon black metal musicians...

Poison is your antidote.

Terzij De Horde - A Rage Of Rapture Against The Dying Of The Light

screaming post black(?!) 05.08.2010

A Rage Of Rapture Against The Dying Of The Light is a cacophony of screeches, nauseatingly fast wrong chords, roving bass and more horrifying screeches, the perfect soundtrack to a nice summer's eve picnic getaway with your special someone.

There is a nice review of this up, but since so few visited it i'm going to randomly beat you over the head with this release on the front page until some other artist releases a hidden gem that another staff member doesn't pick up on first.

Landmine Marathon - Sovereign Descent

Bolivian panpipe music 03.08.2010

Tired of all that heavy shit I've been recommending lately? Yeah, me too. Here's something to relax.

Landmine Marathon's soothing lullabies will put you into a peaceful slumber in no time. Get comfortable on these meditative tunes that are everything but face-ripping. Lay back and concentrate on that calm voice, which sounds nowhere near ferocious female grunts and screams. And enjoy those beautiful dreams of not being a giant pussy.

Neuromist - Move Of Thought

jazzy tech-death metal 28.07.2010

An unknown band from Moldavia that kicks major ass, Neuromist is sure to blow your mind!

Newcomers in the field of technical, jazzy death metal are few and far between, so it would be a shame to let such a talented band rot in obscurity.
Think Meshuggah, Atheist, and the Quebec scene (Gorguts, Neuraxis, Martyr...). Add to this a real songwriting skill...

Now you just have to download it for free here, and listen to this little gem.
