SPECIAL SHOW THIS WEEK going over bands with albums that is completely addictive, from start to finish. These are some of my favorite albums of the last couple of years, you shouldn’t miss out on any of them.
Idylls of the Chosen Damned: Cultes Des Ghoules (Poland) New! (0:28-7:34)
Gritty, neck ripping riffs from Cultes Des Ghoules. Super long songs, I had to cut 8 minutes off this one.
The latest album from Oranssi Pazuzu is one of my top albums of the last couple of years. The whole album encompasses a bunch of different genres, including evil. Super stylish and weird – not surprising they are Finnish!
Komeetta: Oranssi Pazuzu (Finland) 2011 (8:44-15:17)
Vektor is like the little brother of Skeletonwitch – technical but catchy, super speed.
Echoless Chamber: Vektor (Arizona) 2011 (15:54-21:08)
Magic Circle has badass on top of sexy 70’s riffs. Can’t get enough of this new album.
Magic Circle - Cloven In Two: Magic Circle (Boston) New! (21:24-28:50)
Spin-off of White Wizzard – check out their ridiculous youtube videos:
However Holy Grail is definitely not tongue-in-cheek.
Bleeding Stone: Holy Grail (LA) 2012 (29:34-33:53)
One of the loudest bands of last year, with industrial blood pumping through, Black Shape of Nexus is also very German.
400H: Black Shape Of Nexus (Germany) 2012 (34:24-40:20)
Bezoar has some of the best vocals, just happens to be female, and great deep bass accompaniment.
Friend Of My Enemy: Bezoar (Brooklyn) 2012 (40:39-45:42)
I love Fade from Batillus, drool.
Cast: Batillus (Brooklyn) New! (46:27-50:34)
This is an album that has heavy rotation on the weekends in my house.
Chain up the Masses: Sons of Tonatiuh (Atlanta) 2012 (50:51-55:18)
Fister is twisted, I love the two albums I have heard. They have a brand new live album, which makes me really really want to see them live.
Gemini: Fister (St. Louis) New! (56:00-END)
