— All female badass head churning good-time death.
Winter Morning Tower
— Romantic, bleak, howling beast of a black metal album.
REEKING AURA (NY/NJ)
Harvesting The Hatchet
— Members of Artificial Brain and Buckshot Facelift. Delicious groove added to a guttural death with heavenly guitar solos and tight as musicianship.
— Tight, sultry guitar compositions, raspy harsh vocals and syncopated drums lurch in a sharply drawn package.
LIMINAL SHROUD (CAN)
Transmigration II - The Cleansing Ash
— Liminal Shroud's debut made it to my Best of 2020's list. This is, oh my. Majestic black with a knot of emotional despair and a massive journey of buildup and technical prowess.
— Hypnotic death that leans toward doom and atmosphere.
CHAT PILE (OK)
— A meld of genres that borrow from another time. Modernized with sludge and doom and noise and hints of industrial and post-punk melodic guitar.
TRIUMVIR FOUL (Portland)
Slither Of Corruption (The Demise Of The Three Serpents)
— You are not supposed to like this creepy, perverse revulsion of sound.
Hang 'Em Low (So the Rats Can Get 'Em)
— Rough vocals in a sinister-toned rock with a wild dose of experimental guitars and effects.
