Awake In The Macrocosm
— Psychedelic hypnotic and melodic instrumentation blended into death, creating drama and depth into an epic atmospheric. Balance of lovely yet disturbing.
BLOOD OATH (Chile)
Sanctuary of Souls
— More psychedelic moodiness in a blustery pace, guitars stark and grim and angular melodic loveliness with earthy, shadowy vocals.
— Chugging groove with glorious intricate guitars in a complex progressive sludge mix. Huge instrumentals.
— Let’s all marry prog. Fabricant's debut album included technical prowess in extremely strange and wonderful structures, but completely comprehensible. Still for the nerds.
WEALD AND WOE (ID)
Fire, Steel and Flesh
— Build up from organic instrumentals to ferocious whirlpools of hypnotic guitar and a cold, high-pitched vocalist in a melodic black metal.
— Opeth and Tool in the 70s built a time machine to a hundred years in the future.
Chance is a Spectre
— Connecticut vivid, romantic black metal with vocals that amplify the emotional intensity.
TOMB MOLD (Toronto)
Will of Whispers
— Thrash, prog and melodic death with guitars that harmonize into earworm. An epic production for a celebratory worshipful death. It deserves all the hype.
