Épopée - Par Le Sang Versé
— Medieval horn and fiddle with black metal and sexy French vocals.
— Duo mixes rubber band twang and doomy melodic with jaunty black and roll.
Rebirth by Blasphemy
— Anthemic beer, neck, and bonding metal.
STRANGE PEOPLE IN PAIN (Chicago)
— Victor Fisher aka The Lord Reverend Wizard of Alchemical Despair aka the infamous Bruce's Crain's acquaintance is mostly a philosophizer that lends his wholly compelling and uniquely creepy vocal to a wonderfully emotionally-laden black metal. I listened to this on repeat.
The Tyranny of Imagination
— Yes, this sounds like Opeth.
YEAR OF THE COBRA (Seattle)
— Wide range of female vocals in a bass-driven fuzz and stoner.
CHTHONIC DEITY (Denver)
— Colorado death is evil, period. It's the lack of oxygen.
— Lush post and regular black metal with a sharp edge of desperate vocals.
VOICE OF RUIN (Switzerland)
— Riff-heavy thrash and death with drums that blast your face off.
