Oceans Of Slumber - Aetherial

Progressive metal 16.11.2013

Progressive metal that has some extreme elements in it, but not so much of it to really justify calling them "Extreme progressive metal".

This is definitely rivaling Lascaille's Shroud for my prog AOTY right now.

Features drummer Dobber Beverly (ex-Insect Warfare, Ingurgitate), and some other current members of Ingurgitate.

In The Company Of Serpents - Of The Flock

Melodic Sludge/Doom 14.11.2013

The sophomore release from this two piece Colorado outfit. Of The Flock is chalk full of groovy, hard-hitting sludge, at some points darkly melodic and atmospheric in its delivery, helping to give the band a higher dimension of personality that certainly makes them more intriguing than many of their contemporaries.

Caligula's Horse - The Tide, The Thief & River's End

Progressive Alternative Metal 09.11.2013

With their debut "Moments From Ephemeral City" in 2011, I wasn't sure if it was a one-off fluke or indicator of future greatness. Now that "The Tide, The Thief & River's End" is finally here, I am extremely happy to find that they have improved in every aspect and put out another solid album. For fans of Karnivool, Fair To Midland, Lunatic Soul, Haken, Opeth, Tool, and Leprous.

Bölzer - Aura

Super Very Nice Happy Feel Good Wow Death Metal 04.11.2013

Bölzer got some serious bällz. Managing to be nostalgically old-school and uncompromisingly modern all at the same time, and all achieved in 3 glorious songs.




Argus - Beyond The Martyrs

heavy/doom 25.10.2013

If you read my review of their previous album, you know I love them. If you didn't and you don't know the band, stop being uncool and go listen to it. Classic heavy/doom metal doesn't get better than this.



Blut Aus Nord - What Once Was... Liber III

Liberating Black Metal 19.10.2013

Oh look, here's me recommending a Blut Aus Nord record. Pretty sure that's never happened before. If you like Blut Aus Nord, or any music, at its most primitive and twisted then I imagine this will make the blood rush to your lower-middle areas.




Rudra - RTA

Hindu death/thrash 18.10.2013

The seventh volume in a saga of quality extreme metal from Singapore. Cloaked in a layer of obvious Asian musical influences sure to interest fans of bands like Nile and Melechesh.
Check out a track here.



Omb - SwineSong

Progressive / Avantgarde 13.10.2013

If you like your prog to be ambitious, diverse, theatrical & technically proficient, then you are gonna love what these Israelis have in store for you!

Castevet - Obsian

Progressive Blackened Post-Hardcore 08.10.2013

Bit of a mouthful that style description. Don't let it put you off though, Castevet's sound has always been a bitch to accurately describe but one thing's for sure: this is a top quality record. If their début wasn't already brilliant enough (which it was), Obsidian pushes the envelope even further and expands on their scorched-Earthen sound with a flawlessly organic progressive edge, with influences from Virus and Enslaved, if their sound is anything to go by.




Windhand - Soma

stoner doom 08.10.2013

Yeah it sometimes drags and can be a drag, but when everything comes together on this, you'll get lost in it. 77 minutes... of some okayness and some epicness.



Fates Warning - Darkness In A Different Light

Prog, what else. 03.10.2013

Sorry Dream Theater, Fates Warning make us wait for their albums much longer, but release much better music.

Vulture Industries - The Tower

Extreme Prog / Avantgarde Metal 02.10.2013

Long gone are the Arcturus copycat days, now Vulture Industries just released their most personal album to date. Soaring, theatrical, twisted, deeply emotional, awesome.

Try here or there!

Definitely my favorite of the decade+ long comeback album craze that has been happening lately.

Mörkö - Itsensänimeävä

Blackened Doom 26.09.2013

The recent Finnish trend for the bizarre and psychedelic continues. All that's good in the worlds of black, doom, and mindfuck compiled into 35 minutes of gloomy chaos.
Listen over here.
