Unto Others - Strength

Very good record, but not as strong as the previous one.

E-an-na - M.L.R.

My one major complaint about E-an-na’s full-length debut, Nesfâr┼čite, was that it was too full a length. M.L.R. is a bite-sized blast of compact folk metal that I can dig on repeat, and holy hell, is it ever a party.

Night Crowned - Hädanfärd

Night Crowned is a new band that has emerged from the everbearing melodic black metal tree of Sweden. They have members of Cipher System and Dark Funeral in their ranks, so it comes as no surprise that seasoned musicians have created such cohesive and enjoyable albums in the form of Impius Viam in 2020 and Hädanfärd earlier this year.

Still - { }

Oathbreaker are great, so clearly mixing post-metal, black metal and hardcore works, which raises the question of why more bands don’t seem to try it. Still serves as another example of how potent this combination can be.

Full Of Hell - Garden Of Burning Apparitions

You can't see it from our relatively small thumbnail, but the artwork is this close to resembling awful late 90s CGI album covers. Somehow it tiptoed around that.

Gespenst - Den Sidste Færd

Do you believe in ghosts? Den Sidste Færd (roughly translated to "The Last Journey") is a five-track ode to the otherworld from Danish folklore. There may be seven levels to Hell, but becoming a ghost is a five-step process and it takes about 30 minutes.

Teramaze - And The Beauty They Perceive

It’s interesting to see the different effects that the lockdowns in the past year or so have had on people artistically. Some feel completely uninspired, and some go into overdrive; Dean Wells clearly falls into the latter category.

Ikarie - Cuerpos En Sombra

Something that fills us with pride and happiness here at Metal Storm is when bands that we unearth and reveal to the world start to really grow and show the potential that we first saw in them. One of this man’s latest discoveries is Ikarie, whose debut EP was featured in one of our most successful (as proven by the amount of your votes) issues of Clandestine Cuts. This EP is no longer available simply because it has grown to become a debut full-length, available since September 24th, via Avantgarde Music.

Untamed Land - Like Creatures Seeking Their Own Forms

The scorching sun covers the endless sandy wastes in a blazing golden tide as it sets on another day of lawless savagery. Two figures stand apart, eyes locked, ready for the draw, neither daring to breathe lest the other make his move and bring an end to this bloody rivalry of outlaws. Clint Eastwood pulls out his battle axe.

Pa Vesh En - Maniac Manifest

If you find yourself haunted by psychotic howling, dense bass noise and creepy melodies veiled behind a wall of deafening crash percussion, consider picking another dark, smoggy street to walk down before you’re pulled into an alley, never to return. Actually, chances are you’re just listening to Maniac Manifest, and all is well.
