Game of Souls
— Groove-leaning, proggy, intricate thrash breaking into synth and guitar solo interludes.
All Creation Wept
— Best guttural and screeching vocals emoting utter fury, a dance between black and death in a hyper-pace.
CATHARTIC DEMISE (CAN)
— More tight thrash with cool heavy metal melody and a biting guitar and drum coupling. Fist up.
Cities of Smoke
— Sludge that unravels to massive drums and desperate, enraged vocals with instrumentals that transform to savage explosions. Free download from bandcamp! https://soothsayer.bandcamp.com/album/echoes-of-the-earth-atmospheric-doom-sludge-metal
OLD NICK (CA?)
Bastion Of Bubonic Debauchery
— Do a line of coke, take a hit of acid, turn on the black metal and go on a carnival ride.
The Edge of Town
— Relentless sharp death metal infused with cool effects and noodle-y guitar creating a head-churning affair all around.
— Shimmering melodic over a dramatic hardcore vocal and abrasive sludge band with filthy riffs. But the melody, that shit was good.
— Hailing from 1989 and still rocking a modern brutal death with unique doomy melodic, even from old farts.
夢遊病者 (aka Sleepwalker) (NY, Japan, Russia)
Redemption / Retaliation
— Bros. This is sound that will break apart your bored brain with meditative psychedelic, jazz, black metal, and just out-there.
MIRROR OF HAZE (Norway)
Drifting into the Void
— A dark Norwegian gothic with sweet vocals.
