BAUHAUS (UK)(previously unreleased)
— Brand new 1979 unreleased Bauhaus! https://bauhaus.bandcamp.com/
LEBANON HANOVER (Germany)
— German dark danceable wave done to perfection by a duo of vocal perfection, both male and female. Gorgeous synth and bass.
GROSS MISCONDUCT (Vancouver)
— Vancouver death and thrash, so incredibly catchy. 20 years brings technical prowess.
— Finns create the weirdest monster album art in an alien world. The music is sledgehammer death.
CHAPEL OF DISEASE (Germany)
The Sound Of Shallow Grey
— Chapel of Disease incorporates bluesy 70's into their take on death.
In Memories Delusional
— Japanese Sigh continue their fluorescent LSD carnival dream album.
— Musmahhu is a mythological hybrid of serpent, lion and bird. The musician has his own record label and is involved in a lot of other projects; and this is blistering awesomeness. I am stoked to hear the album next year.
THE WIZARDS (Spain)
— This band has been a fave of mine, and were in the running for Best Retro last year. The lead singer is a Spanish god.
— Beer and rock and Norwegian spitting.
The End Of Everything
— Desolate anguished death.
