Corrosion Of Conformity - Deliverance

Stoner Metal 25.09.2010

No album has had a bigger musical influence of my own band than this one. A perfect introduction to North Carolina's "dirty" Metal Scene, COC is pure badass. There is nothing slick and shiny about this album just balls to the walls Metal.

Being the first album with rhythm guitarist Pepper Keenan on lead vocal the band left behind the punk element and added a darker Doom factor to the music. This is what Metallica wished they could have made when they recorded Load.



Wuthering Heights - Salt

Power/Progressive/Folk 25.09.2010

Danish power/progressive/folk act Wuthering Heights are back with their 5th full length after four years. And damn the waiting was worth it; they tuned down the folk parts and tuned up the progressive side of things all the while they deliver full on power. Maybe not as good as Far From The Madding Crowd, but certainly a very mature release showing that these guys are not afraid to evolve.

Insomnium - Across The Dark

Melancholic Melodic Death metal 21.09.2010

Gentle reminder: Insomnium is awesome.


FYI, there's also a new Insomnium song, "Weather Storm", online. Rare and previously unreleased. All you have to do is share this link on Facebook or Twitter to receive a free download of the song (plus a track by some band called Dark Tranquillity), or wait until some wise guy uploads the whole thing on YouTube. The song features a guest appearance by Mikael Stanne.

With Abandon - Maturation

Mathcore / Technical Hardcore / Deathcore 14.09.2010

Pretty good stuff. And with good I mean twisted, heavy-as-fuck and delightfully disfigured. Probably more metal than you can handle, but still, it's sure as shit worth giving a shot.

FREE download available here.

Defeated Sanity - Psalms Of The Moribund

Brutal Death metal 14.09.2010

This year isn't being kind to the living, as we say goodbye to founding member of Defeated Sanity, Wolfgang.

So let's bring our thoughts back to, without any doubt, the band's best work. Psalms Of The Moribund is an absolute explosion of brutal death metal, exactly the way it should be.

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...

Enthral - Prophecies Of The Dying

Black metal 29.08.2010

Enthral keep the black metal genre interesting with "the Prophecies" while being careful not to stray outside the genre's limits. With hints of symphonic and Gothic metal, you're definitely in for a chilling listen. Whether you like old school or modern black metal, Enthral are bound to satisfy your charred tastes.

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.
