Mutilation Rites is deconstruction metal – it breaks apart and comes back in many different forms.

Exhaling or Breathing In: Mutilation Rites (Brooklyn) (0:28-5:59)

 

Brand new Electric Wizard back after 4 years.  Lead singer says they basically killed the idea of their last amalgamation, and have been reborn.  Way more sinister. 

 

I am Nothing: Electric Wizard (U.K.) (6:59-15:58)

 

60’s and 70’s psychedelic influenced this experimental band. 

 

Hearts of Fire: The Grasshopper Lies Heavy (San Antonio) (16:37-21:15)

 

Lo fi Finnish black metal, with some melodic touches.

 

Sokeaa Valkoista: Circle of Ouroborus (Finland) (21:54-26:17)

 

Chick lead singer decimates.  Yes, this is a chick.

 

Decimation: Obscure Sphinx (Poland) (27:24-34:35)

 

Dark electronica, metal influence, industrial, even goth.

 

A Kiss To Birth The Rotted Sun: Burial Hex (Berlin) (35:05-41:42)

 

Dark post-metal

 

Draugr: Vultures at Arms Reach (Santa Cruz) (42:10-47:24)

 

Let the desert rock flow.

Hella classic technical thrash from New Zealand.  Great album cover.

Axiom: Exordium Mors (New Zealand) (0:28-5:03)

 

Oozing Wound is one of my fave bands right now.  Their albums tell a story, that you can listen to over and over again.  Full of colorful plots and character development.  Great album for a Saturday afternoon and a contender for a top album of the year. 

 

Ganja Gremlin: Oozing Wound (Chicago) (6:29-11:33) 

Super fucking thick sound from a Swiss band that is just putting out E.P.’s.  Maybe they know when to cut it short? Whatever the formula, it works.

Entranced by the Wolfshook: Bölzer (Switzerland) (2013) (12:02-18:25)

 

Sleep + Brainoil = Graves At Sea.  That isn’t such a bad computation.

 

This Place is Poison: Graves At Sea (Portland) (19:00-25:31)

 

Grind, death and prog – enough to wake you up from the murk of sludge.

 

Old Father: Bastard Feast (Portland) (26:29-28:31)

 

Again, a full-conceived album is what I yearn to hear, not just a few fist-pumping songs.  This one goes all over the place, including some hardcore stuff.

 

The Desanctification: Wolvhammer (Chicago/Minneapolis) (28:59-35:40)

 

I edited the SHIT out of some Bongripper for you.  Their songs go for 20 minutes+.  Really something you should hear, and check out for yourself.

 

Descent: Bongripper (Chicago) (36:12-41:34)

 

Some dark Texan chatter.

 

Strangers: Crumbling Mirth (San Antonio) (42:04-46:30)

 

Power-viking sludge.  Fun young bros.

 

Infernal Exhalations: War Bong (Nashville) (47:14-50:10)

 

If you don’t know Sleep, why am I talking to you.  This is brand new, after 20 years.

 

The Clarity: Sleep (Oakland) (50:59-END)

Satanic and vegan Antichrist Demoncore are mostly hardcore with a heavy foot in metal and twinges of punk. 

Overstimulated: ACxDC (SoCal) (0:28-1:45)

 

Weakling-sounding strains of post-metal intertwined in black metal

 

Exordium: Alraune (Nashville) (3:10-10:10)

 

Revitalist vocalist in Black Sabbath heavy-influenced, for a Saturday afternoon album

 

Karmanjaka: Purple Hill Witch (Norway) (10:35-15:35)

 

Related to Mitochondrian, death metal breakdown fun.

 

Novemportis: Auroch (Vancouver) (16:02-19:13)

 

Psychedelic and soundtracky – which to me basically means, it sets a very specific mood

 

Ozric Pentacles: Liquido Di Morte (Italy) (19:33-27:56)

 

Riffy, black sabbathy (yes I know yawn sometimes), but this one is a tight album and some brutal fist-pumping parts too

 

Invisible Face: Possessor (England) (28:53-32:46)

 

Well sung doom

 

The Penance You Pay: Serpent Venom (England) (33:08-38:26)

 

Desert rock with a great vocalist from LA.

 

No Soul: Moab (LA) (38:51-42:09)

 

Riffs, jams, atmosphere, space in mostly rocked out sludge.

 

Raging Hunger: Hyperwülff (Italy) (43:21-49:05)

 

Asian and middle eastern strains in this psychedelic band, with pagan too!

 

Peasant of Parthia: Zaum (Canada) (49:25-55:32)

 

I hate the vocals and the cymbals, though this is a large epic album.  

 

Waves of Exultation: Hush (Albany) (56:15-END)
