Atlantean Kodex - The White Goddess

Heavy metal 21.12.2013

This album is like going to heavy metal heaven. The songs are anthems and the lyrics are compelling stories of the epic kind. With its solo bravado, truly majestic vocals, roaring melodies and beautifully crafted acoustic work, The White Goddess is too good to be ignored. There is never a dull moment in the kingdom of Atlantean Kodex.

Kaihoro - Ancient Jams

Stoner / Hard rock 19.12.2013

In need of good hard rocking stoner? Look no further. With ups and downs, these Finns nevertheless know how to rock your boat.

Can you say no to "Troubled Son"? Right...

Hatred Surge - Human Overdose

grind 06.12.2013

Guys from or formerly in or who have played with groups including Power Trip, Trap Them and Insect Warfare are in this band.

And that's just prestige points stuff, because this thing here is a neck wrecker from start to finish.
Not to be missed stuff.

Domovoyd - Oh Sensibility

Psychedelic Stoner Metal 04.12.2013

Catchy grooves and trippy landscapes galore, the first full release from this Finnish four piece is definitely one of the better stoner efforts of 2013, as well as one of the best debuts. Has a very "lazy floating" type of feeling at many points, creating an atmosphere that's quite easy to fall back and get lost in. If that and the fantastic album art don't win you over, I don't know what will.

Turn on, tune in, drop out.

Slugdge - Born Of Slime

Blackened Sluggy Death Metal 01.12.2013

What would get if you made Dragged Into Sunlight a bit less serious, a tad more melodic and had them sing about slugs? You'd get Slugdge of course. Worship the slime!

P.L.F. - Devious Persecution And Wholesale Slaughter

Grind 28.11.2013

Good grind is like a good Burgundy--philistines will, and quite regrettably, never quite understand it; they will always be jealous of those of us to whom are discerning enough to; what with all it's nuance and history and soul-elevating quality.

Eye Of Solitude - Canto III

Death/Doom 26.11.2013

Simply put, this is a great follow-up to last years album Sui Caedere that further solidifies Eye Of Solitude as one of the elite UK death/doom metal acts.

Listen here.

Cloak Of Altering - NONE

Mories Metal 19.11.2013

Mories' (Gnaw Their Tongues, De Magia Veterum, Aderlating etc.) Cloak Of Altering project is turning into his most unusual if this little EP is anything to go by. Outside of his chilled-out, non-metal musings in SEIROM, this is probably the most accessible side to his repertoire and this great gem could only be described as avant-garde metal crossed with trippy music from video games made for aliens, played in reverse.

Keldian - Outbound

Power metal 17.11.2013

Describing themselves as "sci-fi metal", this Norwegian duo release their third album Outbound with the help of funding from fans! Cheesy, spacey power metal; great stuff!

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.
