Drag Me to Hell
— Spectacular intricacy and technicality with frenzied solos and vocals that blaze into your soul.
— Cryptic Shift guitarist lends his talent in a sinister spaced-out death that is unexpected with emotion. Definitely made for a scary basement. Allow it to grow.
BLAZON STONE (Sweden)
Hell on Earth
— Don’t be scared by the power metal. This is warrior anthemic with heavy metal speed and endearing lyrics.
LAMP OF MURMUUR (WA)
— Last year’s split was great. Anonymous black metal with a crisp black metal and a wailing vocal. And a Christian Death cover on this album!
Tribes of Khem
— Heated ash for vocals, jagged demonic death blowing blistering black.
Eleanor Rigor Mortis
— Legendary band, another release after 8 years. Fresh and energetic with seasoned technicality.
In Cold Blood
— Rumbling angry vocals in a stomping black metal with breakdowns and hints of piano as a surprise sound.
NOCTURNAL WANDERER (OR)
Distant Stars in Distant Skies
— Green hills for this type of Oregon black metal with a blast of heavy metal guitar.
— Creepy, mesmerizing, hypnotic, piercing and dangerous.
KNOWLEDGE THROUGH SUFFERING (Italy)
— Epic journeys in each of the (3) songs in an inferno of black metal and a range of tempos with a scouring vocalist.
