Resurgence of Primordial Void Aperture
— Suffocate in swarming, dense, primordial, black metal noise.
GENOCIDE PACT (DC)(releases 2018)
Conquered And Disposed
— Bludgeoning death, but in that super fun way.
Grove Of Mithridate
— Rock and doom and black and groove.
BURIED IN A WOMB (Germany)
Spectrality of Inborn Neuroticism
— Thrash and hardcore-infiltrated death.
HARM'S WAY (Chicago)(releases 2018)
Human Carrying Capacity
— I mean, the lead singer. Wow. Also, this is Chicago hardcore.
— Poland does it again, what a fantastic scene. The album art is top-notch: black and white minimalist alien bird creatures. Need a t-shirt!
VEILED (PA)(releases 2018)
— 2-piece does shimmering black.
MAMMOTH GRINDER (Austin)(releases 2018)
— Mammoth Grinder has members of Iron Reagan and Power Trip. This is going to be a powerful album next year.
— Do NOT be turned off by the genres: post-metal and sludge. It is diverse and rich with rock and melodic psychedelic; each song takes you in different directions. The lead singer is a highlight.
HOODED MENACE (Finland)
Cascade of Ashes
— Of course, the Finnish are fucking weird. Wonderfully so. Aliens living on earth, making creepy weird music. We bend a knee.
