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.

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.
