Devil - Gather The Sinners

Old school 04.06.2013

It's music to worship the devil to. You know, the mustache-twirling and cape-wearing, cartoony devil--the one who looks like he'd cut you a sweet deal on a used Cadillac. The cool devil, not the boring, brutish one.

Leprous - Coal

Avant prog 23.05.2013

A band you can rely on to deliver the goods each time, in a convincing and fresh way. 'Scuse me while I kiss the va-a-a-a-aalley, this valley I'm in.

Evoke Thy Lords - Drunken Tales

stoner doom 23.05.2013

"This one time, in doombandcamp, Evoke Thy Lords stuck a flute in their... mix." A great stoner doom jam with the added twist of near full-time Forest of Equlibrium-like flute. Perfect to chill to as the Northern Hemisphere heats up.

Esoteric Black Metal 10.05.2013

Ever wondered what Esoteric might sound like if they played black metal? Well wonder no more. Featuring Esoteric's Greg Chandler, as well as members from UK black metal masterclasses Archaicus and Omega Centauri, this has literally become the crème de la crème of England's extreme metal talent. The result is quite incredible and I predict this will top most people's black metal lists this year.

Hammerforce - Access Denied

Power/prog 09.05.2013

Rock-solid, high-energy, synth-driven progressive power metal that doesn't fuck around. No heel-dragging ballads and the synthesizer doesn't sound like an afterthought, but is an integral part of the music? On a power metal album? Well, slap my ass and call me babycakes! Sign me up for another listen!

Eibon - II

Blackened Sludge 24.04.2013

II is pretty much what I thought it would be... 40 minutes or so of ugly, foul blackened sludge. Only instead of 6-7 tracks they crafted two 20 minute double-epics, tossing in some groovy psychedelia to boot. Rawr.

Octopus - Into The Void Of Fear

Instrumental Tech-Jazz-Prog Metal 22.04.2013

Octotastic metal.

Hacride - Back To Where You've Never Been

Metal (melo-prog-extreme-djent-Hacride) 22.04.2013

With a renewed line-up (featuring Klone's drummer, no less), Hacride are back with their most accessible, melodic yet technical album to date. But, most of all, it's the emotional intensity that truly makes the difference.

Rob Zombie - Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor

White Zombie 2013 21.04.2013

White Zom...I mean...Rob Zombie is alive!

Vallendusk - Black Clouds Gathering

Atmospheric Black Metal 20.04.2013

The Indonesian metal scene is more known for its brutal death metal but Vallendusk try and break that mould by showing that the scene has a lot more to offer by serving up some seriously high quality atmospheric black metal. Unlike the majority of atmospheric black metal bands that operate with that more depressive mid-tempo sound, Vallendusk differentiate themselves by employing a faster & more upbeat tempo with undoubted post & folk influences. The standout element of this record is without a doubt the excellent guitar work. Whether it's the melodic hooks or acoustic folk passages, it will grip you throughout.

Black Clouds Gathering consists of 7 tracks with the shortest track being 8 minutes long and is admittedly not the most varied record out there, so it will not suit those with a short attention span. But if epic melody-driven atmospheric black metal is your thing, I seriously suggest you give this a spin.

Listen here.
