Rich black metal drums, but way more complex vocals mixing in with progressive.
Invisible Wounds: Sannhet (NY) New! (11:39-15:24)
Subterranean Masquerade did a cover of Cuts You Up (Peter Murphy)! They have a lot of ethnic and dark wave metal - they have been around for a long time.

"Drone-violence", grind and female vocalist.
Mental Corrosion: Ahna (Vancouver) New! (12:31-16:37)
The following song is very acoustic-y, but this music really explodes into rockin' out. Campfire viking fantasy music
Heavy Rest The Chains Of The Damned: The Flight Of Sleipnir (Denver) New! (16:57-21:09)
Germany-y folk, which means their version of more brutal folk. Not nerdy.
If I Am The Storm: Hallig (North Rhine, Germany) New! (21:30-27:02)
Warmer black metal - not as atmospheric or cold; added into the mix is progressive stuff.
Cowards of the New Age: Sloth Herder (Maryland) (27:52-30:14)
Droom - droney doom, but more interesting, with bended vocals. Listen to know what I mean.
Dull Ache (I Hate Myself Today): Tentacle(Boston) New! (30:41-35:40)
Suffocation's 7th album is as tight as your bung hole, completely straight up death from mature musicianship.
Ancient VVisdom is not afraid to be acoustic. Completely acoustic. I have really grown to love his voice. They are badass to play for audiences that just want brutal.
Far Beyond Good & Evil: Ancient VVisdom (Austin) New! (40:14-44:45)
Municipal Waste members in a punk/thrash band referring to Reagan? How old school can you get. This is the longest song.

Crazy evil horror costumes for their live show. The lead singer is in a weird Pope hat and his fingers are long and mangled, and he sings through a mask. Technical and demonic noise, really original.
Plasm: Portal (Australia) (0:28-6:14) New!
Swiss band brings forth very rich black metal influenced music, but emotional, so it pulls you in.

The Heavy Eyes is one of my favorite blues rock bands, the vocalist is sexy and the music jams.
One Hand on the Buffalo: The Heavy Eyes (Memphis) (13:17-16:37) New!
Meshuggah’s new E.P. is industrial-ish –they were always math-y and progressive, but I like the industrial feel to Pitch Black. His vocals isn’t a pounding sledgehammer, so listenable. Bands like saxophones nowadays.
Pitch Black:Meshuggah (Sweden) New! (17:06-22:50) New!
Early 80’s post-punk mixed with modern atmospheric vocals. Moody, great for wine party.
City Evenings: A Light In the Dark(Russia) (23:52-29:34) New!
Portland burner band – great climactic riffs, intense lead up to headbang. I expect to hear more from this band.

Fhoi Myore’s new album is a must-have already. The draw of raw black metal, and fantastically dark forest romantic, but not quiet.
Songes Funestes: Fhoi Myore (France) New! (0:28-5:59)
My number one musician right now, Fade from Batillus is a true industrial genius. This is his crazy brain creating pure industrial experimental noise.
The Fragility Of The Male Ego: Theologian (Brooklyn) 2012 (7:21-13:29)
