Dodecahedron

Dodecahedron, initially formed as Order Of The Source Below, is a black metal band from The Netherlands, creating an atmospheric and aggressive technical threat to the genreʼs standard. New perspectives and old visionaries joined forces to exploit the black metal landscape, squeezing it dry and transforming it into a sonic horror storm. Taking the genre to a different darkness and technical level, Dodecahedron is ready to conquer all that is above and below.

The band released their self-titled debut on January 20, 2012 via Season of Mist.

Chaos Moon - Resurrection Extract

One man bands have more or less always caught my attention, mostly due to the inspiring testaments to individual potential that lurk within them. Many of metal's repeat offenders within this realm of solidarity have kept relatively quiet this year, but now the silence is being broken once more by the little known, though highly accomplished Chaos Moon, beloved offspring of America's very own Alexander "Esoterica" Poole.

Bands
Fifth Angel

Back in the glory days of traditional metal in the 1980s, with the likes of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Ronnie James Dio, Led Zeppelin, and many others as an influence, Ed Archer, Ted Pilot and James Byrd had a vision. This vision was to blend their various musical influences and backgrounds together to form a new version of traditional metal. Thus, the inception of the band Fifth Angel. Ken Mary was brought on board on drums, and would later move on to much success playing in bands such as House Of Lords, Bad Moon Rising, and Alice Cooper, to name but a few.

Desert Age - Documentary On Desert Rock

So as some of you astute MSers might have noticed I've (temporarily) abandoned the desert of southern Arizona to go into hiding in the lush jungles of Paraguay. Thrown in to a land where virtually no one speaks English, the beer is watery lager, and there is no hot sauce? (WTF?!) Though the peeps are swell and the meat is PLENTIFUL, I've grown a tad homesick for the scorching, oven-like dry heat of the Southwest.

And suddenly I get an email in my inbox... lo! behold! A reminder of home. Well, at least close to home. A work in progress documentary on the California Desert Rock phenomenon. Kyuss! Queens Of The Stone Age! Fu Manchu! Eagles Of Death Metal! Deaths Of Eagle Metal Queens Of The Kyuss Manchu!

Scythian

Scythian formed in 2004 - a reaction to the insufferable music of their times. Sworn against the exaltation of "worship-bands" and copy-artists, they took up arms to obliterate the criminal sounds of the UK metal scene - and stamp them into the earth.

Battling with self-contradiction, the band combined its early musical influences to establish an identity that would set them apart from the herd. Though it reeked of Bathory, Sodom and Morbid Angel, the result was one of primitive individualism: Suffering to the Conquered a six-track demo in 2007 would earn the band rave reviews and a series of gig appearances which would take them from London to Crimea, Ukraine - the birthplace of their namesake.

Narrow House

The first name of the band was Funestum, and it was started in Kiev in 2008, being the first band to introduce atmospheric funeral doom in Ukraine. Under this name the band took part in a number of shows sharing stage with Cemetery Of Scream, Inferno, and Apostate, and releasing an EP called The Gates Of Eon, which is available online.

In 2009 the band changed its name to Narrow House, continuing its funeral doom legacy and taking part in multiple Ukrainian doom fests, playing with Skepticism, Mournful Gust, Stoned Jesus, and Mozergush. All live performances by Narrow House were supported with psychological visuals and ambient music, which merges all songs into one solid and depressive structure. The original lineup of Narrow House was:

Cock And Ball Torture

Cock And Ball Torture was founded back in early 1997 by those three lads who still keep the wheel turning after more than 15 years in existence. Shortly after the foundation the band already recorded the first songs which were a teaser of what was to come the following years: CBT became one of the forerunners of goregrind. Influenced in the beginning by bands like GUT, Hemdale, and others, the band soon developed their very unique style of groovy grind.

After great response in the worldwide underground scene from day one, the band made several EPs and split releases before releasing the first full-length. Opus(sy)VI. In support of the album CBT played several shows in their home country as well as the first European gigs in the Netherlands, Czech Republic, France and Great Britain, culminating in an appearance on the infamous Ohio Death Fest in the USA.

Fozzy - Do You Wanna Start A War

It seems a little too easy picking on a band like Fozzy. The soapbox-contrarian part of me wants to love this album out of spite...But I just can't do it. Do You Wanna Start A War? is about as bland as it gets.
