OUTER HEAVEN (PA)
— Filthy, churning, riff-heavy death from start to finish.
CLOUD RAT (Michigan)
— Immense female lead singer of Cloud Rat expresses our emotions so well. Sick-of-your-shit vocals give way to brief respites of alternative rock, and it is a joy. Mostly grind and hardcore, don't worry.
AUTHOR & PUNISHER (San Diego)
— He stays true to old school industrial with vocals reminiscent of Ogre. Bro makes most of his noise-makers.
UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS (UK)
I See Through You
— Psychedelic blues in a cracked, distorted production. These guys know how to take you out on a stoner journey SO well. Don't miss this, the reviews are underwhelming but the album is not.
PIAH MATER (Brazil)
— Loose proggy death and rock and jazz.
To Wander the Night's Eternal Path
— One original member remains, bringing in new members from Nightbringer and Saturnian Mist. Retains brutal while still infusing the evil and the romance, the way I like it.
IRON REAGAN (VA)
— Cleaner-style vocals in the same punchy thrash and fun.
The Sword of Retribution
— Thick medieval vocals breathe out fire.
With Knives to the Throat and Hell in Your Heart
— Emotional, bleak, distressed, anguished, moody black metal to listen to while putting on heavy eyeliner.
HOLOCAUSTO EM CHAMAS (Portugal)
After The Crucifixion
— Terror-driven black metal for serial killers.
