Tenor saxophone added to Helgamite’s compositions, bringing in psychedelic and jazz elements to their experimental metal sound
Shaman's Veil: Helgamite (VA)(0:28-6:07)
I heart Lord Mantis hard. They have a new lead singer, and I couldn’t even TELL until I read about it. And thank gawd, because I love that shrieking style. They had my 2014 #1 Album of the Year, and they split up to recreate their band. Their lead singer comes from the band Indian. Excited to hear their entire album if it sounds more like the following song.
S.I.G. Safer: Lord Mantis (Chicago)(7:41-12:18)
Viking horn beer metal that is anthemic yet melodic, singing about being a king and needing his crown.
Crownless: Sig:Ar:Tyr (Ontario)(13:15-19:19)
Young and In the Way are my darling filthy crust.
Solitude: Young and In The Way (Charlotte)(19:45-25:31)
Great stoner, to give your ears a break, brah.
Losting Things: The Bendal Interlude (UK)(26:27-30:21)
Slow creeping doom, in such a great headbanging way.
Stargate path ( inizia quando entra la batteria nei feedback): Into Coffin (Germany)(30:45-36:23)
Emotional death and doom.
Sickness of the Mind: Nostrum (Victoria)(36:43-43:05)
Savage doom from Colorada-brah.
Detached And Conquered: Ketch (CO)(43:24-49:15)
2-piece death with a side of punk, from 2 style vocalists – the female is badass.
In Darkness They Come Crawling: Gorgosaur (Sweden)(50:08-53:25)
Fierce power crust.
No More Words: Ancst (Germany)(53:43-56:29)
Raw emotional black metal.
Unraveling the Bracelets of Fortune: Bog of the Infidel (RI)(57:07-END)
