0:25-6:51
BÂ’A (France)
Titan
— Anonymous band, probably Satan, firing out a layered black metal that dabbles in the dark arts of atmosphere and bleeds in a stunning piano.

7:50-12:06
WARBRINGER (CA)
Firepower Kills
— Speed demons with a spin of tempo and groove made for your face.

12:34-17:25

When Gold Turns Into Lead
— Members of Behexen and Horna creating breast-heaving leather-warrior bare-horseback black metal.

17:50-22:51
BEGGAR (UK)
Compelled To Repeat
— A unique blend of muscular death-leaning sludge that meanders under the warmth of a desert rock sun.  Screeching strong vocalist is a highlight.

AODON (France)
L'infime
— French spoken with snarls and a drummer that made my eyeball twitch.

29:11-33:11
TRAVELER (CAN)
Deepspace

BARISHI (VT)
Entombed in Gold Forever
— Vermont cheese and dappled forests created black metal with acoustic guitar and a doom twist.

40:24-43:05
NIGHT DEMON (CA)
Empires Fall
— Rancid members do right – now creating catchy heavy metal.

44:05-48:05
KOLOSSUS (Italy)
Norge
— Epic Viking black metal with talented guests, including Vicotnik of Dødheimsgard, contributing vocals with a theatrical greatness.

48:59-53:56
MASTERPIECE MACHINE (Atlanta)
Rotting Fruit
— Members of Fucked Up and Power Trip create a decent version of their take on industrial. I kind of don’t like super cool people doing industrial and new wave. It feels like you are stealing from the nerds.

54:28-END
NECHOCHWEN (WV)
The Megalith
— On a split with Panopticon. Savage black metal that speaks to American history and broken with folk instrumentals.

9:52-19:06
ORANSSI PAZUZU (Finland)
Tyhjyyden sakramentti
— Psychedelic spacey prog rock that does not sound retro. Finnish aliens at it again with another puzzle piece for your brain.

19:34-24:29
DROUGHT YEAR (NC)
Nostalgic Delusion

白骨精 (White Bone Spirit)
— Energetic ferocious and unrelenting death with incredible solos from guest artists like Gridlink and Horrendous.

30:58-36:31
VOCO (Bay Area)
Goat Haggle at the Black Market
— Traverse the wrinkles of weirdo brains following their own streams of consciousness into progressive rock with a lovely saxophone.

37:14-42:30
AT THE ALTAR OF THE HORNED GOD (Spain)
Prayer I
— Raw and Viking, epic and haunted, pagan and ritualistic black metal sliced heavily with beautiful melancholy.

Empty Throne
— One of my favorite vocalist with more of his honey tones over groove so right.

49:33-55:29
THE DITCH AND THE DELTA (SLC)

14:08-19:40
VOLCANDRA (Kentucky)
The Burning Mountain
— Kentucky black metal doesn’t really surprise me. Any weirdo-filled repressed society creates a heaving backlash of angry youth. Kentucky has been shining with diamonds lately, from Knocked Loose to this debut. Both bands have a hardcore edge to it, maybe it’s in the Kentucky water.

20:25-25:19
FEARING (Santa Cruz)
Pictured Perfect
— Fearing beats a shimmering heart in their style of dark wave, complete with a perfect crooning lad that is incredible live. Their show was a highlight of 2019.

26:10-31:38
LIKE RATS (Chicago)
Crimson Cosmos
— Bassist from Weekend Nachos. Severely death metal now, but still chomping Chicago pit influence.

39:47-45:12

Mouth of Abolition

16:53-20:01
IRIST (GA)
Order of the Mind
— A blast of melodic death and sludge and groove and fist-pumping riffs, just a delightful album.

20:36-26:39
ROMAN RING (Chicago)
God Narcotic
— Drummer from Warforged, guitarist from Immortal Bird, lead singer of Through the Eyes of the Dead, bassist from Wounds, so you know, this shit is not that talented. Textural Death muscle with a bit of experimental and angularity.

27:26-32:16
CHRONICLE (Denmark)
Nocturnality
— Denmark death and heavy metal bent to chugging groove reminiscent of early Skeletonwitch, including a charismatic lead singer.

32:39-40:43

Oracle atone
— French emotionally pleading black metal howling with melancholy. The French are drama.

41:18-43:57
SKAM (Sweden)
Shit Out of Luck
— Death metal is played in Swedish cribs. A tight fist of death, complex and full and somehow packaged in 2 minutes or less.

45:00-50:35
MEMBARIS (Germany)
My Path Of Stars
— Both in duo contribute vocals in a raw black metal with a forefront of drums and hella varied melodies that really makes for a compelling album.

50:54-56:28
FREEWAYS (CAN)
Dead Air
— Sweet melody and jamming guitars create a dreamy, warm, candy of an album.

57:02-END
GNAW THEIR TONGUES (Netherlands)

37:22-43:19
AETERNAM (Montreal)
Ithyphallic Spirits of Procreation
— Middle eastern folk is popular with metal bands; this band uses the ethnic instrumentation with technical proggressive death metal and monster drums.

Radiator
— Post-punk deviates to an edgy and progressive melodic romanticism.

48:27-54:16
ENOID (Switzerland)
Je n'existe Que Dans La Souffrance
— Snarling French in a tangled raw, ferocious, throaty, traditional black metal.

54:49
TEMPLE OF VOID (Detroit)
Radiator
