OV SHADOWS (Sweden)
— Unreleased song added to a new cassette release of their frosty black metal 2020 album.
— Complex French black metal integrates technical, creative, haunting, pagan, dense death and pockets of experimental instrumentation.
JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES (Finland)

Invention of the Shipwreck
— An impressive debut album of technical death and thrash with proggy interludes and dynamic guitar work.
AN AUTUMN FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN (Netherlands)
— Falkor metal, with all-encompassing spacy, majestic instrumentals stabbed with its vocalist.
— Anthemic heavy metal and speed with full retro vocals.
DEPRESION RADIKAL (Argentina)
— Baritone goth vocals in a bass-toned synth dark wave with touches of experimental. A heavy-hitting post-punk and wave album. Free download!: https://tumberorecords1.bandcamp.com/
SCULPTURE CLUB (SLC)
Shed to Salt
— Robert Smith meets The Ocean Blue, dark mixed with floatingly sweet.
UNPLEASANT SOUNDS (Russia)

— Growls in space, with horror noise and funeral death.
