Italian doom and screech vocal band with a viciously awesome album

Ketama Gold: Tons (Italy) 2012, New Import (0:28-6:36)

One of my favorite Boston bands has a new album – a great Friday album – both for decompression and pumping beer energy into your soul.

Bleed Out: Black Pyramid (Boston) New! (7:43-13:14)

Vancouver’s Anciients has one of the most solid proggy riff-tastic albums of the year (so far, I mean, its April and shit).

Raise the Sun: Anciients (Vancouver) New! (13:45-20:17)

Apparently reviewers think Ghost has gone pussy or something, but I like their Satanic values and organ (that sounds dirty).  Yes, easy-listening metal is the new thing.

Secular Haze: Ghost B.C. (Sweden) New! (20:52-26:00)

Lots of gorgeous build-up to epic black metal is All the Empires of the World.  Even the name of the band is kinda build-up.

Paladin Curses: All The Empires Of The World (England) New! (26:53-31:38)

Fun stoner hardcore, garage-y and rocking out from Poland.

A Russian jam band.  Nuff said.

PlasticBag Facemask.  PlasticBag Facemask.  Best name ever.

Alien Shark Embryo: PlasticBag Facemask (Yosemite, California) New! (39:20-40:25)

Progressive mixed with death, spacy and nerdy.  Russia in the hiz-house.

Algorithms (of interplanetarian geometry): Dejuvenation (Russia) New! (40:58-43:47)

Hilarious band from Netherlands, who are clawing the world ladder in best scene.

Raising the Chalice: Acid Deathtrip (Netherlands) New! (44:25-47:23)

Spanish female lead vocals, great bluesy vocals.

The Wicked King: Hela (Spain) New! (47:35-52:31)

Estonians download my show, so I have to check out their scene more often.  Talbot claims to be the loudest duo on the earth. 

Hallelucinogen: Talbot (Estonia) New! (52:54-56:57)

Witty, and country?!  Yep, country style southern death metal.  Ever heard of it?  The Italians Carcharodon have a full on hilarious album, and rocks you out the door.

2 bands from St. Louis to start off the set! Fister is one of my favorite bands, I have been waiting for this album to come out. It is hardcore vocals and a slight slowdown in tempo, a mix of awesomeness.
 
Suicide Hessian: Fister (St. Louis) New! (0:28-5:27)

Fulgora shares their drummer with Misery Index and Pig Destroyer, you can hear his brutal influence. This band is just hard.

Italian jazz hard experimental, the album is very ethnic and world.

667 A Step Ahead Of The Devil: Mombu(Italy) (11:10-14:37)

Crust mixed with black mixed with rock, and romantic enough for this gal. Second album.

Retrospect Dissonance: Ramlord(New Hampshire) New! (15:02-19:06)

Rock band is tongue in cheek, but because they are from Norway, there is some darker elements.

Ladies Of The Night: The Devil(Norway) New! (19:31-24:43)

I can hear the back up vocalist, he sounds like Dave Ed! Danish band The Psyke Project pummels, HUGE epic sound.

Ghost Fight: The Psyke Project(Denmark) New! (25:35-29:42)

Shining is produced by the dude that does Nine Inch Nails, and you can hear the industrial influence, and of course the jazz-y ness.

The One Inside: Shining(Norway) New! (30:06-34:06)

Landscape epic romance soundtrack from Italy.

Son of the Cathartic Cave: Hierophant(Italy) New! (34:19-38:34)

Surtr breaks down, and you are like, holy headbanging crap. Medieval drumming, folksy vocals, and a whole lotta doom. Love this album.

Three Winters of War: Surtr(France) New! (38:56-44:57)

Azure Emote brings forth experimental death with progressive and psychedelic and industrial, in a fully complex album.

Epoch of De-Evolution: Azure Emote (Philly) New! (45:56-51:30)

Even though we are all over Isis, Red Apollo has really pretty and emotional sound to back them up.

Ordeal: Red Apollo (Germany) New! (51:59-56:12)

Iron Witch is NOT sludge, they have a lot of hardcore influence, but they breakdown like a metal band, with heavy riffs.

The riffs in Ulvedharr’s new album totally breaks badass.

Cave In’s spin-off band Zozobra is as tight and hard as Cave In. 

Born In A Blaze: Zozobra (Boston) New! (13:47-16:39)

Acoustic with violinist, the dude sings a lot and you think it is going to be cheesy, but give it a chance, very varied and talented.  Dark folk.

Amenra’s hardcore baby is Hessian.
