Ukumgallu - Rotten Limbs In Dreams Of Blood

Great bm from the guys behind Ash Borer. Kinda like Skaphe but without the pyschedelic-y sound and riffing.

Purgatory - 1986 - Tied to the Trax

Holy SHIET you guys, this is a masterful record. The best thing here is, of course, the thrash included power metal musical direction with -- at least -- the occasional great vocal performance of Jeff Hatrix. If one song should be checked out here it's the last one: "Purgatory (Shattered Vision)". Killer album from these rather unknown lads. 8,5/10, and better than Jon Schaffer's Purgatory

Every now and then I have to play this masterpiece. 13 minutes of batshit crazy BM. There certainly is some deranged aspect to the music, even if on paper it's just some blast-beat/tremolo riffs. But the atmosphere is instantly recognisable. Animal noises in the intro and vocals being mostly a mix of random shouts buried in the background, as if trying to inhale or suffocating, do give it a wtf vibe.

The last album I listened to was Breakdown of Sanity's Perception !

Absolutely Fantastic.

Listen to it on a home system with four JBL 10 stacks.

Absolutely mind-blowing.

Not Fragile - 1993 - Lost In A Dream

Power metal in the 90s, what can do wrong? -- Not this album. This is a solid competitor to Walls of Jericho and Gates to Purgatory but the release year might raise some question marks: why was this released so late? I don't know or care, maybe they didn't just get a record deal sooner, give them some slack. 9/10, this is one underdog record you guys

Maniac - 1988 - Look Out

Is this 2nd Fifth Angel? Sounds similar, but Maniac actually was formed earlier. Really good unknown record with strong songwriting. 8,5/10

edit. Listened some more, sounds even better. Let's say a fair 9/10. Overlooked gem right here

Maniac - 1985 - Maniac

Is this "a technologically backwards Helloween" like UltraBoris claimed? Let's find out. It's not like that at all; this is classic heavy metal combined with some occasional speed metal, and it's rather good at it. Great debut record, but not quite as good as the sophomore. 8/10. Skip the last song though, that's pretty much a bore

No Trouble - 1985 - Looking For Trouble

Just heavy metal from the golden ages; not especially great but I can definitelly listen to this at least once. 7/10.

Vladimir Pavelka - Spomienky (2021)

While the initial EP was perhaps more post-black oriented, this LP is rather post-rock with a few hints of BM in some blast-beat driven sections. And it achieves even better the nostalgia feeling of old, when things were simpler and nicer. Too much feels contained in 45 minutes. Like a rural-Slovakian God Is An Astronaut. Or a very soft Cult of Fire.
Being instrumental (minus a few ambient noises like cats purring and river flowing) is a big win, only suitable option for this kind of music. It's a trip.
Highlights include Detske Hry, Kostolnik and Túra Na Čachtický Hrad.
