— Yoda ear metal. Gurgling demonic alien vocals with groovy thrash and monster death that is fist clenchingly satisfying.
WITCH TRAIL (Belgium)
— Beautiful post-punk and dark alternative blended into a thick cloud of noisy black metal. Don't miss this album.
— Melodic underpinning the cold black metal drumming and atmospheric guitars all in a dystopian package. Another excellent German black metal band.
CONSTELLATIA (South Africa)
All Nights Belong To You
— Misty shoegaze shattering into a blooming canopy of black metal.
— Just, unique. Electronic bursts, disjointed piano, and a howling beast lost in the mayhem. In the past I thought these guys were a bit much, but this album is compelling.
— Bluesy vocalist drenching the lyrics. Bass-heavy noise and psychedelic twisted ala Chicago.
Beyond The Exosphere
— Super catchy melodic death and moody heavy metal with a black metal vein. Yep, all of it, and even though it is super catchy, it is also explosive and a blast.
Us D‘R Höll Chunnt Nume Zyt
— Crusty, grim black metal drowning you in its sweat and blood. But fun!
Rid of You
— Heavy rock with a lean to 90's era proggy alternative and a stunner of a vocalist.
STREET SECTS (Austin)
If Life is a Gift, It's in Very Poor Taste
— It felt I was listening to Foetus and Skinny Puppy. True early industrial-style.
