VORTEX OF END (FRANCE)
— Ritualistic, blasting intensity, and check out their shirtless pics. I mean, they are really talented.
The Old Worship of Pain
— Warrior beasts throwing out spears of thrash and heavy metal. Diverse album - these Italians keep 'em guessing.
— Her vocals are everything, and the tight drumming. Oakland is filth.
I Am The Seer
— Finnish kaleidoscope of psychedelic, bright and intense. And weird, they ARE Finnish.
INTER ARMA (VA)
— Dreamy meditative sludge with a dollop of Enemy of the Sun post-metal and a death metal edge.
ZEALOT R.I.P. (San Diego)
The Extinction Of You
— Just an EP so far of stellar hardcore with a member of Pig Destroyer.
Ísland, Steingelda Krummaskuð
— Epic black metal with Icelandic melodic and emotional heartstring-pulling folk.
— Now a duo, and with Fade's brilliance in creating modern electronic that is even more dissonant. But he knows what the true industrial fan wants, which is to dance.
— Moments of stillness is where I live, and this band creates pockets that highlight the tight drumming and beautiful drifting melodies.
FUMING MOUTH (MA)
The Spirit's Chain
— Converge-loving Mass. This is in a similar vein of chaotic large hardcore sound.
