CRAVEN IDOL (UK)
The Gods Have Left Us for Dead
— Stunning moody black metal with a lava hot drummer, and technical guitar noodling. Just love this.
Descent Into Ruinous Splendor
— Epic stories built by a 2-piece, a Cryptmaster vocalist and ominous, dramatic drummer. Devilish atmosphere.
NIGHT CROWNED (Sweden)
— Gothic black metal retaining the aggression including a sharply-edged vocalist and technical guitar bordering on a retro 80’s heavy metal. Drama galore, really fun melodic black.
— YOU pronounce it. Swirling deathcore with dynamic pace and mood, swinging in style that all take you to the bottom of the ocean.
TEMPLE OF DREAD (Germany)
— Jaunty thrash breaks a surging death the only way Germans can do it.
The Will To Live
— More torture from members of Pyrrhon in the form of angular death and noise.
Remain The Same Again
— The vocals are insane, along with a heavy-bass sound and distorted guitar in a solid debut.
BLACK DROP EFFECT (Sweden)
— Technically not new, except the physical release is brand new. Members of Ov Shadows making yet another excellent bout of melodic, tight black metal.
NARZISSUS (Austria)(released 12/2020)
— Weepy romantic novel soundtrack. Well, for a weirdo.
