Satanic and vegan Antichrist Demoncore are mostly hardcore with a heavy foot in metal and twinges of punk.
Overstimulated: ACxDC (SoCal) (0:28-1:45)
Weakling-sounding strains of post-metal intertwined in black metal
Exordium: Alraune (Nashville) (3:10-10:10)
Revitalist vocalist in Black Sabbath heavy-influenced, for a Saturday afternoon album
Karmanjaka: Purple Hill Witch (Norway) (10:35-15:35)
Related to Mitochondrian, death metal breakdown fun.
Novemportis: Auroch (Vancouver) (16:02-19:13)
Psychedelic and soundtracky – which to me basically means, it sets a very specific mood
Ozric Pentacles: Liquido Di Morte (Italy) (19:33-27:56)
Riffy, black sabbathy (yes I know yawn sometimes), but this one is a tight album and some brutal fist-pumping parts too
Invisible Face: Possessor (England) (28:53-32:46)
Well sung doom
The Penance You Pay: Serpent Venom (England) (33:08-38:26)
Desert rock with a great vocalist from LA.
No Soul: Moab (LA) (38:51-42:09)
Riffs, jams, atmosphere, space in mostly rocked out sludge.
Raging Hunger: Hyperwülff (Italy) (43:21-49:05)
Asian and middle eastern strains in this psychedelic band, with pagan too!
Peasant of Parthia: Zaum (Canada) (49:25-55:32)
I hate the vocals and the cymbals, though this is a large epic album.
Waves of Exultation: Hush (Albany) (56:15-END)
