— Rich, dark, technical American black metal with a majesty of vocal styles and sweet, proggy guitar.
DET EVIGA LEENDET (Sweden)
— Det eviga leendet's vocalist is Mare Cognitum with 5 anonymous band members in a tight, black metal racing to the edge of time. Just, intense.
— Touching, 90’s style indie mixed with distorted stoner guitar and an angelic shoegaze singer. Just love this 90’s retrovitalist sounds coming out now!
— Vivid, emotional German black metal with a knife of a vocalist slicing through your thirsty veins, in a fantastic debut.
— The band name means “tomb”, and this is as cold, but completely alive in a suffocating black metal, raw and bleak in energy, collapsing in melody.
CULT OF LUNA (Sweden)
The Silver Arc
— My, my, I dig this album, when I thought I had outgrown their style. Their gorgeous singer is brooding and sultry, the music is immersive and meditative, spacey and even psychedelic. A real surprise.
NOCTURNAL TRIUMPH (US)
The Hammer of Immateriality
— Desperate shrieks line a brutally bludgeoning black speed.
AUTHOR & PUNISHER (CA)
Drone Carrying Dread
— Uber-drums, doom and post-metal with modern unique twists.
When Those Icy Waters Swept Them Away
— Thrash fun and a black and roll pace with delicious riffs, and a meandering melodic breaking it up.
