Greece has some of the best musicians, this band is perfect blackened crust, very tight, very energetic.
Πνιγερή Καταχνιά: Lethe (Greece) (0:28-4:32)
Swedish band that reminds me of At the Gates. Members of famous Swedish bands like Entombed. This is a great E.P., can’t wait to hear the full album. They released the E.P. for free online.
Fahund: Torture Division (Sweden) (5:51-8:25)
Please sludge through this song by Fleshpress, I swear there is big payoff. It totally reminds me of the oldest Neurosis albums – influenced by punk. The Finnish have a knack for making something original out of played out genres.
Golden Owl: Fleshpress (Finland) (8:59-14:59)
Thick psychedelic fuzz from the Finnish.
Incarnation: Domovoyd (Finland) (15:12-20:24)
FINALLY, after 2 years the mighty Belgian 30,000 Monkies have a brand new E.P. They are a great car band.
Imperial Staches: 30,000 Monkies (Belgium) (20:52-23:02)
Krallice spin-off Geryon is only bass and drums. Progressive like Krallice. Experimental and cold.
Birth: Geryon (NYC) (23:32-29:55)
Dirty groove from Denver.
Craven: In the Company of Serpents (Denver) (30:51-36:39)
Drugs of Faith manages to push grind into their fun punk style – totally a refreshing look at hardcore and grindcore and punk. Their 2011 album made into a many top list, this is from their brand new E.P.
Insanity: Drugs of Faith (D.C.) (37:10-39:29)
Vooram is a weirdo off a fun split, I dug his experimental style that took me into another place completely.
Ethereal Architect: Vooram (Chicago) (39:59-43:29)
Croatian hardcore, angry, catchy.
Koja je tvoja cijena: Ponor (Croatia) (43:48-47:58)
NWOBHM style from 30+ years old Hell, they cracked me up but I can’t help but me impressed with their technical prowess and fun-ness.
The Disposer Supreme: Hell (U.K.) (48:58-55:44)
Castevet spin-off Psalm Zero released 2 songs, soon to be a full album from Profound Lore. I couldn’t really tell if I liked them from these 2 songs. The Today is the Day cover kind of got on my nerves. You decide.
Force My Hand: Psalm Zero (NY) (56:30-END)
