Tight and technical, sharp, seething thrash touched with funk and groove and fun.
Hang 'Em High: Havok (Denver)(0:25-4:58)
Distorted and intensity built, parts organic, parts that dive right off a cliff. Surprising at every turn.
Nganda: Svart Crown (French)(6:27-12:12)
NYC distorted noisy hardcore that moshes into thrash.
Narc: Crushed (NYC)(12:35-15:25)
Badass, female-led massive doom album.
Ain Soph: Bathsheba (Belgium)(16:03-21:36)
Oh, my Fade, out with a new industrial album.
Mortuary: Statiqbloom (Brooklyn)(22:02-25:43)
Excellent noise-touched rock that doesn’t become arty. Just good fucking rock, each song is a blast.
Fingers as Arrows: Dead (Australia)(26:36-31:06)
Straight up Swedish melodic metal, i.e. sounds just like early At the Gates.
Survival of the Sickest: Evocation (Sweden)(31:45-34:48)
One-man deathrock-influenced Light of the Morning Star will make you nostalgic.
Grey Carriages: Light of the Morning Star (London)(35:10-39:17)
The other spectrum of Colorado music is jamming the shit out. I love it when this band lets loose.
Beyond the Electric Sun: Cloud Catcher (Denver)(39:50-46:52)
Meditative funeral doom that calls into mind hot black-cloaked angels of doom that will burn you alive with their sexy eyes. I’m reading YA right now.
Nocturnal Void: Frowning (Germany)(47:57-57:29)
Arizona desert stoner.
Disease: Goya (Phoenix)(57:59-END)
