THIS GIFT IS A CURSE (Sweden)
Monuments for Dead Gods
— Swing the spectrum to pulverized melody within a scream and pummel.
DROUGHT YEAR (NC)

Draped in What Was
— Oh hell, this is just a bowel blowing beast.
A PREGNANT LIGHT (MI)
— Conceptual without imagery. Punchy hardcore-heavy with a nod to black metal and a very strong lead singer with a lot of attitude.
NOCTURNAL BREED (Norway)
— Sinister glorious infectious thundering and anthemic.
— Hammer precise drums and earth shattering riffs to keep it real.
MALIGNANT ALTAR (Houston)
