Death To Fight Death
— Tresspasser released their album late last year, and I am sorry to have waited so long to listen. This is a groovy, catchy, rifftastic death and black and unleashed fist pumping enthusiasm from beginning to end.
— Black thrash and death filled with creeping, stalking dread. Sinister as all hell's beasts.
SPIRIT ADRIFT (AR)
Eyes Were Not Alive
— One of my fave smooth retro doom from the guitarist of Take Over and Destroy. They won my best doom band in 2016. Bro's vocals are hot.
— Don't mistake this band for Chicago's Plague Bringer (two words). This is the Canadian one-word band with the creepiest vocalist with a spectrum of styles, and a technical grind that fed my soul on an angry Monday morning.
— Dark species of sludge; down-tuned to reach the pit of your soul.
Until the Red of Dawn
— You can feel the sound waves travel the ridges of his vocal chords; gasping wicked poetry with the support of guitars feeding off each other.
— Next (2) bands share the same lead singer. Hooks, riffs, incredible melodic guitar work in a classic heavy metal structure. This song is a cover of Tredegar's.
— Another classic heavy metal band with the same incredible lead singer, anthemic chorus-y fun.
WRETCHED FATE (Sweden)
— Another Redefining Dark records classic of epic Swedish death metal with hella muscular vocals and technical, tight punchy guitars.
KAUNIS KUOLEMATON (Finland)
— Finnish vampires inject violins, synth and pale skin in their super melodic death metal.
The Darkness Comes
— Blasphemous 2-piece that hammers you into the ground.
— Chomping crust and death.
