Secret Cutter is groovy hardcore, pulls you in while driving a nail through your heart.

Shake The Malevolent: Secret Cutter (PA)(0:28-2:29)

Epic, extreme, black and death, mixing in ambience, cause it is epic. Downfall of Gaia is a critic favorite right now.

To Carry Myself to the Grave: Downfall of Gaia (Germany)(3:35-11:08)

11 Paranoias creeps into your psychedelic black heart.

Lost to Smoke: 11 Paranoias (U.K.)(11:39-19:02)

So cheesy, in the best way is NJ’s While Heaven Wept. (EDIT: massive mistake, this awesome band is from VIRGINIA, what was I thinking you ask? I listened to them on a road trip in NJ and forever associate them with that state)

Indifference Turned Paralysis: While Heaven Wept (Virginia)(19:24-23:08)

Craang is so loose, that you know that this is the best type of band to be psychedelic.  Parts improv, but all jammy spacey fun.

Slo Forward Jam: Craang (Greece)(24:11-31:12)

Garage and black metal, what does that even mean.

When a Lie Becomes the Truth: Raspberry Bulbs (NYC)(31:33-34:23)

Depressing sober sludge.

Drag: Dusted: Pharaoh (NJ)(34:48-39:42)

What can anyone say, Today is the Day.  This new one is as good as they are.

Discipline: Today is the Day (Nashville)(40:35-43:32)

Super band Soulburn really riffs it out in the best possible way.  They are “blackened” death, which means they infuse some shit in this shit and shit.

Claws Of Tribulation: Soulburn (Netherlands)(44:14-49:38)

Fucking psychedelic, from Norway and shit.  This shit is TIGHT.

I.E.V I: Circumambulating Mount Meru: Spectral Haze (Norway)(50:22-54:15)

Very different grind from Copenhagen.

Devouring Intent: Piss Vortex (Denmark)(54:38-55:42)

One of my favorite vocalists of all time, who also is in one of my other fave albums of this year:

Dread Sovereign: Primordial (Ireland)(56:31-END)

Touring Italian death rock with Mission (U.K.) vocals.  Unfortunately I missed them, this album will take you straight back to the early 80’s in the best way.

'Till The Last Drop: Horror Vacui (Italy)(0:28-6:09)

Bauhaus re-born, singing God is dead.

Übermensch: Pawns (Brooklyn)(7:01-12:44)

Fade from Batillus has one of the best EBM/industrial bands in our modern times.  One man project.  He made my “best of” list last year.  This is from a new split with Zex Model.

Behind Glass_Second Pane: Statiqbloom (Brooklyn)(13:17-17:34)

Skinny frigging Puppy.  Need I say more??!  I heart them more than you.  I will be twirling around in storm clouds in December when I see them at the Warfield. 

wornin: Skinny Puppy (Vancouver)(18:17-22:57)

Criminal Code is flirts with punk and hardcore, but has a firm grip in post-punk.

Burning Backwards: Criminal Code (Tacoma)(23:21-25:13)

Institute shares a record label with Pharmakon, who is getting way more attention.  Institute rules, deserves more of the spotlight.

An Absence: Institute (Austin)(26:07-29:47)

Danish dark new wave, fronted by a strong vocalist.

Forever: Iceage (Denmark)(30:12-34:57)

Youth Code is a duo, definitely do not hide being influenced by bands like Nitzer Ebb and KMFDM and other old school EBM and industrial.  They are touring with Skinny Puppy. 

Let The Sky Burn: Youth Code (LA)(35:21-39:14)

Pharmakon is a one chick who is a complete noise-creating weirdo.

Autoimmune: Pharmakon (Brooklyn)(39:45-44:27)

Vicious Pleasures is yet another female-led band, she screams punk-ily.

In These Walls: Vicious Pleasures (Portland)(45:20-47:44)

Population have tried over the last 5 years to evolve, and they have ended with this thick new wave sound.

Sleepwalker: Population (Chicago)(48:15-52:27)

Female-led bay area band, gotta check them out!
