Cathedral Of Impaled
— Ohio weirdos in a cavernous death, pummeling raw black, and a sludgy groove.
SIGNIFICANT POINT (Japan)
— Stylish retro Japanese that hit 80’s soaring epic heavy and speed metal on the head. Jamming, harmonizing, technical guitars steal the show.
THROWING BRICKS (Netherlands)
— This will thaw your heart and pummel it to a pulp all at the same time. The desperate vocals really threw some arrows. Hardcore, sludge, black, post-metal and even drone.
— Krallice off-roads and it is the insane that our brains need. The masters of dense, technical prowess break under atmospheric vocals and avant garde synth to create a post-apocalyptic sound.
VIII: The End (This Is the Way the World Ends)
— Another weird album with multiple facets: moody mathematical, industrial, funk-bass and theatrical psychedelic. A member of Hexvessel and Grave Pleasures.
Convulsing In The Shit And Piss Of Man
— Absolutely no “swampy stoner” here. This is some filthy, deranged death with heavily head-bangable moments.
— Vocalist of Blut Aus Nord creates his style of modern, well-produced black metal with a touch of folk.
— Haunting instrumentals build to melodic death and frenzied thrash.
Towers of Suffocation
— Don’t underestimate a hearty portion of old school debilitating power death.
BLEIB MODERN (Germany)
— Melancholy, of course. This is post-punk that knows mood.
De Leegte Wenkt
— Dutch black metal. What can go wrong.
