— Guitar noodling nerds who understand they need to break it down in the most immense satisfying way in order to get laid.
HORDE OF HEL (Sweden)
— Alien beasts just returning from war-metal.
HENRIK PALM (Sweden)
— Big influencers, my Roommate and Sean pushed me to listen to ex-Ghost guitarist, now a solo synthesizer-lover breaking into the post-punk, krautrock, pagan blues genre.
INFERA BRUO (Boston)
— Switched tempos, switched vocals, technical guitars, and moody electronics scatter across aggressive black metal. Excellent!
LORD ALMIGHTY (Boston)
— I had to buy the vinyl, the album art is epic. Chomping Boston-style hardcore and swinging heavy metal guitars break up the melodic black metal.
SPIRIT ADRIFT (TX)
Screaming from Beyond
— Chris Black is another incredible artist similar to Nate Garrett. Retro metal and hard rocking riffs with epic vocals.
Mada Minu Yuutopia
— Japanese-loving Swedes in aesthetics. Dense, angry, ferocious hardcore, thrash and retro metal. Punk as fuck.
— Denver dudes bring in the concept of the wild west outlaw with twanging western guitars to create the atmosphere in their version of majestic black metal. Makes sense to me. The wild west was evil.
Revel in Gore
— Lean, aggressive, mean-muscled death.
