— Debut thrash from a fiery rasp in a Lemmy style and guitars that careen off a cliff.
— Funeral doom death? This one engulfs and saturates, and then explodes into a cavernous death with monstrous beat. Be patient, this is gratifying. Massive album.
— French heavy metal that jam with guitar rides, with changing tempos and epic leadups to dramatic Mercyful Fate vocals.
— Tribal Polish black metal with strange instrumentation including the didgeridoo and a range of vocals, including chants, female vocals and a guttural mutterer.
— 20 years for me, following this band. The lead singer was also shared with Dozer, another fave. The new vocalist has been around for a while now, and he is as epic. Sun-drenched Swedish retro done perfectly.
TURRIS EBURNEA (Italy)
— A duo from Cosmic Putrefaction and Krallice, mesmerizing with twisted death and a touch of really unique melodic and droney bits.
MARIANAS REST (Finland)
— Finnish decompresses you with their style of melancholy blackened and a hot vocalist.
GENGHIS TRON (NY)
Alone In The Heart Of The Light
— Synth-based psychedelic, post- and spacey-rock that is immersive and heady.
— Dr. Zhivago metal. Dramatic, romantic and melancholy-sweet driving to a bitterly cold ending.
Archaic Burial Rites
— Marasmus balances delicate instrumentation and a brutal technical death. Raw and sparse that packs a wallop, with a blast of riffs when necessary.
HAPLESS WRETCH (London)
— 10 minutes of filthy grime-y death that is as impactful as a much longer album.
