You know the drill. Here's some rather fine sounding Cthulhu driven death metal that's not due for release until 2013, with extraordinarily beautiful cover artwork (check out the detail in the full image):

Pretty stunning one-black metal outfit from the UK. Ambient, atmospheric black metal. Some of the best I've heard in a while. If you have Spotify he has his entire discog on their under a box set which is worth listening to to see how his band develops from folky ambient to this. It's all fantastic.

In the vein of UKBM, this is a newly formed band (January 2013) from Belfast, Ireland. Ambient Black Metal, maybe?

First EP by Uroboros, a death/sludge duo from my city. Recording is not perfect, but the songs and the production are good. Second EP to be released next week.

So Sumerian apparantly signed some random melodic metalcore band some time ago that released a full length this year.

Bogstandard melodic metalcore, but they have some tasty instrumentation and interesting vocal approaches (also probably one of the best cleans in the genre).

Until Rain, Thought Chamber and Illusion Suite's sophomores are all out. 3 of them are great. Thought Chamber's is the most different one, like their debut. Michael Harris is such a talented guitarist. Until Rain and Illusion Suite's albums are mostly for prog-power listeners, yet they are more progressive than power.

New Corrections House song streaming HERE. The debut will be released next month, I believe it will be great based on the 7'' and the songs released so far.

Hardcore / Metalcore with quite a bit of black metal I would say. This is definitely going near the top of the best albums I've heard this year.

I listened to the album a couple weeks ago after a very positive review on a national metal magazine and I subscribe to this recommendation, definitely one of my favorites of the year. To anyone interested in the album, the fact that the vocalist is a woman might increase your curiosity.

Nice Avantgarde black metal from Slovakia here. There is definitely room for improvement, but still a worthwhile listen methinks. Sounds like new album is a bit more listener friendly than the the first one (which is very good too), although it should have been a bit shorter imo. It has also less references to dark ambient beginnings of the band (and more symphonic elements at the same time).

If you are up to something quite unusual and extravagant, check out this special piece of work. Hard to define though, however it's an instrumental cello-based music, with rock/doom/classical elements. It sure provides some exceptional cello riffs.

Posted this a while ago. It's quite good. Don't remember any black or thrash in it though. To me it sounded like mid-paced death metal, somewhat like Arghoslent.

Yeah probably you're right. I'm bad in genre-lizing

extremely Arghoslent like I would say, especially due to the vocal delivery and the sort of riffing. Totally no black and thrash in there, at all.
