Sloth Herder shreds, massive drumming, sharp to melodic to grind. Excellent American black metal NOT from NY.
Antipathic Grades: Sloth Herder (MD)(0:25-3:37)
Animal-loving psychotic weirdos Czar create a bubbly electronic grind album that will soundtrack your fever dreams.
RxABBITS: Czar (WA)(4:35-6:39)
Denmark is the new metal god country. Holy shit I love Orm and Hexis (played later in this show). Orm means: "a long, cold and boneless flesh-eating beast that slithers in the abyss. Both hypnotizingly majestic in its calmness and unpredictable like a storm.” Swoon-worthy sounds.
Ancient Echoes: Orm (Denmark)(7:12-14:06)
Angsty, energetic black metal erupting with Ohio fury. Bad ass album, hard to pick a song.
Charred Black Remains: Fever Nest (OH)(14:36-19:08)
Another Danish band that is intelligently composed; rich, enveloping black metal.
Ashanti: Hexis (Denmark)(19:57-25:13)
Disjointed avant-garde death.
Magpie: Sunless (Minneapolis)(25:47-30:29)
Romantic brutal doom.
The Ritual: Bereft (Los Angeles)(30:55-37:51)
Raw, thrash permeated Finnish black with amazing guitar leads.
Black miasma: Lantern (Finland)(38:32-43:53)
Swedish melodic that is just so right. Great balance of headbanging, melody and charming vocalist, so good.
Quetzalcoatl: Sons ov Omega (Sweden)(45:08-51:13)
Aliens make this.
Goat Emperor: White Death (Finland)(51:37-55:51)
Surprising electronic sound in the new Artificial Brain. If you don’t know this band by now, well, START.
Infrared Horizon: Artificial Brain (NY)(56:18-END)
