Formidine: Acolyte (Manchester) New! (0:28-6:32)
I have played this Philly band before, and now they have scored a record label. 2 piece, playing their version of black, trippy riffs.
False Prism: Sadgiqacea (Philadelphia) New! (7:53-13:59)
Italy breeds them rockin’ and jammin’.
So Deep: Ape Skull (Italy) New! (14:19-19:40)
Cardinal Wyrm is bay area’s own – they will be opening for Sabbat in October. Their album is dirty and riffy and fun.
The Circle: Cardinal Wyrm (Oakland) New! (20:13-27:14)
More awesomeness from Canada. They get the idea of dark without pressing too hard on your skull.
Happy Entrails: Wakeless (Ontario) 2012 (28:04-33:21)
Denmark is gaining traction in weird metal. Guttural and romantic dark atmosphere.
Mesmerizing Holy Death: Cerekloth (Denmark) New! (33:42-38:55)
Electronic and industrial, definitely listens to Skinny Puppy.
A Road of Gravel and Skulls: The Moth Gatherer (Sweden) New! (39:21-45:59)
America’s version of At The Gates, and have taken on Corey Hart’s Sunglasses at Night.
Unwelcome: Arsis (Virginia) New! (46:35-50:14)
Raw metal from Italy, once again showing their prowess in every genre.
Manifestation Of The Curse: Ars Macabra (Italy) New! (50:31-56:01)
Gorgeous French metal, super atmospheric, great vocals, one of my faves from this area.
Abyss: Crown (France) New! (56:32-END)
