In need of an album to prove to all the Gorgoroth and "one trve Mayhem" worshipers that black metal today is anything but confined to Satanic and dark themes? Sedna have got you covered.

Ghost Brigade - IV - One With The Storm
Review by R'Vannith
8.3
For three records the Finnish band Ghost Brigade have provided a unique example of melodic death metal progression. Basing their studio efforts well beyond generic limits and engaging the structures and tones of post-metal, they continue to issue their original and outlying style in IV: One With The Storm, but to a similar result as any of their prior releases.

Kolony - Sledge
Review by Doc Godin
5.9
Have you ever listened to one of those albums where it's quite clear one member of the band gives significantly less shits than everyone else around him/her? That's Kolony's Sledge in a nutshell.

Mors Principium Est - Dawn Of The 5th Era
Review by R'Vannith
8.0
Staving off doubts given their frequency of line-up changes, Mors Principium Est consistently prove themselves to be a vital name in melodic death metal. Not for reasons of clear originality of style, but vital for their shared vitality, a remarkable feat considering the rate at which their rhythm guitars switch hands.

Faithful Darkness - Archgod
Review by R'Vannith
6.0
It's with a restrictive rigidity that Faithful Darkness deliver in Archgod. For a band that would seize upon the frenetic kinetics of thrash in order to differentiate their position within melodic death metal, fixed tempos and a generic construct prove pervasive and limiting.

Downfall Of Gaia - Aeon Unveils The Thrones Of Decay
Review by tea[m]ster
8.8
Downfall Of Gaia are a really hard band to place in one specific genre. Their second full-length album, Aeon Unveils The Thrones Of Decay, carries on the experimentation they dabbled with on their debut LP Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes. Dissonant black metal, post metal, doom metal, and sludgy, hardcore elements pervade both albums but where their debut was a bit raw, this new LP has been refined, re-tooled, and re-focused to take advantage of...

Major Parkinson - Twilight Cinema
Review by Ivor
 
As curious as it is, one of my favourite albums this year was released quite early at the beginning of the year. This stellar album blew me away when I first heard it and it has continued to amaze me throughout the year. I might even say, Twilight Cinema has already stood the test of time. It has definitely survived the initial round of childish excitement. Most importantly, however, each time I listen to it I'm still awed by the detailed theatrical expressiveness and beauty of this album.

Bison B.C. - Lovelessness (2012)

Canadian sludge stars Bison B.C. released a record in early 2010 called Dark Ages. This marked a special moment in my life, as it was the album that really got me into sludge metal. After being a casual listener of sludge for years, Dark Ages welcomed me in to the gritty and dirty fold of the genre; it stayed my gold standard for a long time after. Two and a half years later the band returns with Lovelessness and they couldn't have picked a more fitting title. (by Susan)   Read more ››
