Obelyskkh's third album rocks, so I can imagine their two well-regarded albums are awesome.
The Man Within: Obelyskkh (Germany) New! (0:28-6:37)
Blackened sludge from a hard-working band.
The Black Blood of Aeons: Forced (NY) New! (8:20-12:43)
Pallbearer style vocals? I don't know, what do I know. Melancholy and catchy, fuzzy and long songs.
Orchard: Windhand (Richmond) New!(13:24-19:23)
Psychedelic stoner for the young at heart.
Neptune: Black Willows (Switzerland) New! (19:47-28:31)
No nazi crap for this Germanic black metal band! On a new split with Hiveburner.
the faceless: Ancst (Germany) New! (29:28-31:42)
Cult of Luna has become more atmospheric and don't shy from delving in the melodic.
Shun the Mask: Cult of Luna (Sweden) Newish! (32:09-38:58)
Mountain High would "love to play your house, basement, moms garage, local vfw hall, stadium, or coffee shop." I listened to the whole album, nuff said.
Suneater: Mountain High (Philly) New! (39:31-46:56)
More eastern european dark stuff from Belarus band Roddone.
My dark passenger: Roddone (Belarus) New! (47:41-50:15)
I imagine Northless to be hairy and into whiskey, as they are from Milwaukee, and that is all I imagine Milwaukee to be.
Wither and Escape: Northless (Milwaukee) New! (50:40-53:54)
Estonia is an awesome source of metal now, love that country. Estonia is #1!! (I'm racist)
tides: Nordlost (Estonia) New! (54:27-END!!)
