The new TOAD! This album has goth, spacey and psychedelic strains running through, in all-over groove rock.

Terminal Burrowing: Take Over and Destroy (Arizona) (0:28-5:13)

 

Horror experimental mixed with prog and brutal; but not as hard as that just sounded.

 

The Bright White Nothing At The End Of The Tunnel: Thantifaxath (Toronto) (6:36-13:17)

 

Vocalist is my favorite part of Darkentries; the album is full of different styles, but in a beautiful composition of sound.

 

TV Fuzz: Darkentries (SC) (13:45-19:15)

 

Heavy metal punk rock.

 

Whiplash Disaster: Midnight (Cleveland) (19:41-23:54)

 

Don’t underestimate, not just groovy – it hits on some great riffs.  KTB has been around for 15 years.

 

Fifty-Four: Karma to Burn (WV) (24:50-29:19)

 

Italian glam punk band, very stylish and dirty at the same time. 

 

Eaten Dust Overload: Children of Technology (Italy) (29:52-33:28)

 

Monolord has very loud drums, crunchy, thick.

 

Icon: Monolord (Sweden) (33:52-41:30)

 

Canadian French post-metal.

 

Fading Inn: Rhino (Montreal) (42:20-47:52)

 

2/3’s female, beer rock!

 

 Wyvernking: Krownn (Italy) (51:35-END)

I love YOB. This album is yours, in your vinyl collection, right now.

Nothing to Win: YOB (Eugene) (0:28-11:36)

 

Bastard Sapling is a spin-off of Inter Arma, including a song sung by the lead singer in Windhand (cute girl).  One of the best black metal albums I have heard this year: warm, rich, organic, but still black.

 

The Killer In Us All: Bastard Sapling (VA) (13:25-19:40)

 

You know Pallbearer.  This is more Pallbearish stuff – epic, large, pretty, vocals-heavy.

 

The Ghost I Used To Be: Pallbearer (Little Rock) (20:28-28:37)

 

The new American Graveyard that caught the 70’s mullet of Metal Blade.

 

Behold, The Anunnaki: Brimstone Coven (WV) (29:41-35:14)

 

Maveth (Finland) and Embrace of Thorns (Greece) came out with an incredible black crazy dark split of awesome filth

 

The Pits Of Strife: Embrace of Thorns (Greece) (35:50-39:31)

 

Experimental proggy death from Norway, totes weird and shit.

 

Hermit Dream: Diskord (Norway) (40:05-45:55)

 

San Francisco’s very weirdo experimental band that uses dulcimers.  Dulcimers.

 

Dianthus: Botanist (San Francisco) (47:03-49:50)

 

Irish dark?? Yep.

 

Killvlad: Weed Priest (Ireland) (50:14-56:44)

 

Gallo is Gallow now, putting out his interpretation of Italian pagan.

 

Passer-By: John Gallow (NY) (57:24-END)

Warm southern grind.  Makes sense?

Our Creation: Columns (NC) (0:28-2:43)

 

Pilgrim is now a 2-piece with some pretentiously named guy The Wizard doing guitar and bass.  Melody leans toward the melancholy ala Pallbearer-style. 

 

The Paladin: Pilgrim (RI) (3:58-8:00)

 

Atmospheric, folksy integrated black metal, but in a natural non-contrived way.

 

The Long Road, II. Capricious Miles: Panopticon (KY) (8:35-16:27)

 

Pranjal’s voice is very majestic, it brainwashes you into thinking you are standing in a cathedral with dragons flying overhead.  The lyrics are thoughtful and dripping with imagery.  Last year’s album was a riffy sludge-filled album; this one incorporates a bit more melancholy. Hey, who doesn’t like to be kicked in the gut with emotion.

 

The Outlier: Cardinal Wyrm (Oakland) (17:13-24:02)

 

Krieg is like, a totes black metal and crust band.  Whattup.

 

Worthless Nothing (Doom cover): Krieg (NJ) (25:04-27:25)

 

Oh my heart, a female led Graveyard-esque band.  This album is MASSIVE.

 

Black Smoke: Blues Pills (Sweden) (27:59-33:04)

 

Vukari is like, yeah, we are black metal and stuff, but we can make you cry.

 

Riddled With Fear And Doubt: Vukari (Chicago) (33:37-38:52)

 

Yet another band from Arizona filled with seething anger, I like.  But also, Arizona blows.

 

Blowback: Territory (Tucson) (39:04-41:16)

 

More of a shifting hardcore album: tempo-changing, genre-bending weirdos.

 

Standing On the Shoulders of Omega: Northern Widows (Columbus)(41:46-45:05)

 

A thickly riffy fist-pumping whiskey-flavored band.

 

Stoic: Nervewrecker (U.K.) (46:03-50:17)

 

I go off about the idea of metal.  This band is BRUTAL.

 

(Proto)Christ: Coprocephalic (San Diego/Taiwan)(51:08-54:28)

 

Agoraphobic Nosebleed member, and label.  Tiki-influenced grind.

 

Vestige of Surfly Remains: Wadge (Canada) (55:10-56:25)

 

Thanks FLOOD for having an album named OAK and making it entirely impossible to find you on the internet.  Good thinkin’!

 

Holy Astro Shaman Part I: Flood (Oakland) (57:03-END)\

Suffocating doom, totally envelops.  Thick and dark.  Delicious.

Dweller On The Threshold: Fórn (Boston) (0:28-7:42)

 

Plasticbag Facemask is way WAY cooler than any of us.  Witty, awesome, tight, aggressive, insane.

 

I Am Facebook Officially Going to Puke: Plasticbag Facemask (Cali) (8:54-15:05)

 

Listen to the whole song, this is a fun death metal band, another good Arizona band, who woulda thought.

 

Here is a video: http://youtu.be/DuHZuVV3foQ

Overdose: Gatecreeper (Arizona) (15:47-18:39)

 

This is Nachtmystium’s last album, and I think their best.  It has a pinch of everything: brutal, post-metal, spacey, proggy

 

The World We Left Behind: Nachtmystium (Chicago) (19:19-25:52)

 

Because of their large penises, these guys are a little too full of themselves.  I have just heard a bit of their demo, and I already want to be their sex slave. 

 

Diverse Beliefs: Fassbender (San Francisco) (26:49-28:19)

 

Epic 2 piece, similar to the Body, but way more emotional.  Same crushing style.

 

As It Needs To Be...: Keeper (Cali) (28:54-37:10)

 

New favorite hardcore album.

 

Keelhaul: Husk (U.K.) (37:36-40:38)

 

Big Black Cloud is influenced by the 80’s punk and 90’s alternative and has molded it into a modern experimental sound.

 

Cities of the Red Night: Big Black Cloud (Portland) (41:02-44:44)

 

Oakland! Black metal!  They have been getting tons of good reviews.  They revel in tradition in their lofi sound, but have a bunch of surprising breaks that makes this a good package. 

 

Blood Opulence: Akatharsia (Oakland) (45:27-46:42)

 

Italian 2 piece that is loud and proud. 

 

Right Not Right: Agatha (Italy) (47:15-51:59)

 

Yay, a fun 70’s style bluesy band, you need this in your life sometimes.

 

Information Overload: Lord Montague (Minneapolis) (52:56-57:10)

 

Finland, first of all, and then on top of it, these guys are weird for the Finnish.  Nuff said.

 

Vastans: Suruni (Finland) (57:49-END)
