Altar Of Betelegeuze - Streaming New Tracks

Hey! It's Friday! Robert Smith of the Cure is in love… but I'm drunk. And in an ornery mood, so time for a Friday Feel Bad for all you peoples visiting Metal Storm. How 'bout a kick in the junk from Altar Of Betelgeuze?

When last we left AOB they were "one of those pentagram shaped pegs that refuse to be easily pounded into a round hole", tossing some stoner, some doom, some death into their riff factory and exporting some awesome tunes.

Now they are back again, only with a little more in the Arsenal Of Betelgeuze adding a little Alice In Chains vibe into the concoction. Their newest, Among The Ruins is due out April 15th, 2017, giving us Americanos something to look forward to on Tax Day. Hooray.

Anomalous

ANOMALOUS is a progressive-technical-death-metal band formed in 2001 by Tim Hale and Max Seeman. With a goal of creating a sound that melded their disparate influences, the founding members began writing music.

Despite the lack of a vocalist, bassist and a revolving cast of drummers, a series of shows in the San Francisco Bay Area announced ANOMALOUS as a presence.

In 2005, the founding members were joined by Nate Vennarucci, and the trio began recording, substituting programmed drums and samples for the ever-revolving cast of percussionists. Upon completion of the recording, the Minnesota-based metal label Brutal Bands picked up the band and in 2006 Cognitive Dissonance was released to favorable reviews. The band's masterful first release belies, or perhaps reflects, the bands tumultuous beginnings and while deserving of a brief respite, ANOMALOUS began writing for the next album, while actively pursuing musicians to complete their sound.

Santo Rostro - The Healer

So I've really enjoyed Santo Rostro's first two efforts. With their third offering, The Healer, they really got their shit together and created an album that batters their prior offerings. It's like the difference between a 10yo and a 12yo scotch. Whatever characteristics that make that 10-year-old Islay Malt good only improve with the added couple years.

Tyron

TYRON was founded in 2008 (as „Lilith Laying Down") from singer and guitarist Pavlos Batziakas and bass player Lars Kaufmann.
Half a year later the first promotional CD „What lies beneath" had been recorded.
This EP included four songs that due to its diversity attracted attention of many metal webzines. The following reviews attested LLD their musical skills with an average rating of 8 points out of 10!
With a new line up LLD moved on and recorded the full length album „Nether Regions" in 2011. This album splitted the audience. On the one hand it was praised for its diversity on the other hand it was criticized for that. But whatever opinion the reviewer had - the professionality of each song as well as the astonishing charismatic voice of Pavlos has always been emphasized!

Skyclad - Reveal New Album Details, Release Date

Today, Skyclad have finally revealed details about their upcoming 13th studio album. The long-awaited successor to 2009's In The... All Together will be released on the 28th of April and has been given the title Forward Into The Past. Featuring a lineup of six musicians for the first time since vocalist Martin Walkyier left the band in 2000, current vocalist/guitarist Kevin Ridley states that they have written songs "about politics, the environment and the music business and so on [...] mixed with the standard Skyclad fayre of traditional bawdy/drinking type of songs and songs with blues and more 'ethnic' feels." In other words, kind of what one could expect from the British folk metallers, but we will have to wait and see how the return of early-90's guitarist Dave Pugh has affected the sound.
