Disarmonia Mundi - Cold Inferno

Determined to let the world know that Italy can still produce some high-quality Gothenburg metal, Disarmonia Mundi is back after a 6-year hiatus. The Turin-based twosome is comprised of instrumentalist extraordinaire Ettore Rigotti and vocalist Claudio Ravinale. Björn Strid from Soilwork and Christian Älvestam also provide some vocal work.

In this much coveted market of melodic death metal, it has always been virtually impossible to avoid comparisons. Earlier in their career, the band was likened to Soilwork. Of course hiring Björn Strid on 2004's Fragments Of D-Generation did not help. What it did though was bring them to the forefront of the scene. 2009 rolled around and the emergence of a more modern sound was showcased on The Isolation Game. All of a sudden Disarmonia Mundi was being compared to later days In Flames for obvious reasons. Undeterred by criticism, the duo just released their 5th offering, Cold Inferno.

Sacred Oath - Ravensong

So it turns out the metal gods do in fact listen to our prayers. Ask for a ballsy, melodic heavy/power metal album that's not overproduced and not rooted in Helloween clichés and the metalgods grant not one but two such albums in the form of the new Armored Saint as well as the album in question, Sacred Oath's Ravensong. But are the gods truly generous or just a bunch of fickle tricksters who give with one hand only to take with the other?

Bands
Doomenicus

Doomenicus (Domenico Caruso) was a one-man band born in 2001 by Doomenicus's will (who first acted as singer, songwriter and helped with arrangements). During this first phase of the band's life Doomenicus was accompanied by Baron Frankenheimer (Francesco Rinaldi), who deals with guitars. Still in 2001 Doomenicus produce their first demo titled "Suffering of Souls", which contained three tracks characterized by their length, by their evocative mood and by a very professional production. Immediately Doomenicus start to built a good reputation around them in the underground doom metal world. The reviews are very positive (Tomet E- Zine, Metal Shock, Brutalism, Empire Metal 'Zine, MetalWave, Il Male Production, Solitude Aeternus and many others) and they galvanize the one-man band's work, which however starts to slow down, despite the large requests for live shows and the work-in-progress with another demo.

Third Ion - 13/8 Bit

In case you've been living under a rock, supergroups are all the rage now, and they are popping up quicker than you can count them. Third Ion may not be as "super" in terms of fame, but this collaborative effort is still very much on my radar because members of Into Eternity and The Devin Townsend Project are on board.
