Soijl - Endless Elysian Fields

Soijl are a one man (kind of) death doom project of Mattias Svensson, whom you might know from a stint with Saturnus. After six years as a side project, recruiting Henrik Kindvall to growl, rasp and bellow, and some positive response to demos, he got in gear and set out to record Endless Elysian Fields.

With Endless Elysian Fields they attempted to force themselves into the minds of the suicidal and write from the point of view of the bleakest, darkest moments. Total despair. Fear. Misery. Woe. Gastric discomfort after eating an absurdly spicy meal. Distraught fragility. <Insert more terms I've used in prior doom reviews here.>

Aderlating - Hell Follows

Maurice de Jong has always been quite the prolific composer, but there can be no denying that he's been particularly hyperactive this year. After a Seirom EP, releases from his new It Only Gets Worse and Pyriphlegethon projects, new Gnaw Their Tongues and Cloak Of Altering full lengths, and even a collab with the vile Dragged Into Sunlight, it's time for this active madman to give us one final installment in the soundtrack to our 2015 nightmares. Turn that night light on, kiddies: new Aderlating has arrived.

Antagonist Zero

In the last five years, Antagonist Zero have gone from playing small clubs in Finland to large festivals all around the world. They have introduced the world to their unique blend of doom, death/black and post metal mixed with a hint of progressive rock, creating an atmospheric nightscape of melodic melancholy and aggressive reflection.

The band was formed in 2010 by guitarists Ben and Juho, who wanted to do something different from the heavily death and thrash dominated metal scene in Southern Finland at the time. The founding idea was to have an open-minded approach and combine elements from different kinds of music into a type of metal they would like to listen to themselves. The band came together from a group of experienced musicians, familiar to listeners from bands including Coprolith, Adastra, Lost in Tears and Cavus.

Take Over And Destroy

TOAD is a 6 piece band from Phoenix, Arizona that has crafted a sound of their own that cannot easily be classified. This entitled "Rotten Tide" and was tracked live to analog tape. For this album, TOAD teamed up with recording engineer/producer Bob Hoag, who owns and operates Flying Blanket Recording. All vintage gear from the 60's and 70's was used to get a true rock and roll sound. The serious snarl of the vocals are accompanied with horrifyingly distorted organ scattered throughout, which provides a new unique sound that TOAD has coined as their own.
