Proggy instrumental Italian 2 piece gets some synth help from Ufomammut
Mayale: Zolle (Italy) New! (0:28-3:18)
Old school 1989 song from Bolt Thrower, who just played at Maryland Deathfest and had a mini-tour. They were pissed off a few years ago when Earache reissued Realm of Chaos, because they got no royalties. Earache bastards.
All That Remains: Bolt Thrower (U.K.) (not mutha fucking new bros) (4:33-9:08)
Solid Milwaukee Maidens have a debut album that reminds me of good Isis.
Lands of the Blind: Maidens (Milwaukee) New! (9:21-13:19)
Hot mama lead singer in Blood Ceremony may play the dorky flute, but she also kicks ass. I saw her open for Ghost, and all the guys were drooling.
Goodbye Gemini: Blood Ceremony (Canada) New! (13:52-18:07)
Sadgiqacea, who I have played a couple of times, is touring and promoting with their fellow Philly-ites Hivelords who I ALSO have played a couple of times. Both have new albums!!
Atavus Lich: Hivelords (Philadelphia) New! (18:35-25:05)
Swedish One Inch Giant sings accompanied with a very catchy riffy party album.
Only Scorn Remains: One Inch Giant (Sweden) New! (25:57-29:59)
Autopsy comes through with raw, and not over-produced. Chris Reifert of Autopsy and Death is in the following metal cookbook:
Running From the Goathead: Autopsy (Concord) New! (30:18-34:43)
Chicago is excelling in artsy fartsy experimentation. A lot of it has climactic riffs in the middle of dark ambient, which I like. You can also check out Wrekmeister Harmonies who have played in a Chicago museum and cemetery.
Panorama Of Mirrors: Locrian (Chicago) New! (35:05-41:41)
Swedish crust kicks you in the gut in a very satisfying way. Swedish vocals are hot!
Kan Du Bli Optimal: Fredag Den 13e (Sweden) (42:32-46:46)
Dark menace, I mean, very menace-y.
Pale Dawn Rising: The Vein (Denmark) New! (47:52-54:55)
Hells Headbangers Records new comp is a must have!
Circle Of Serpents: Denouncement Pyre (Australia) New! (55:18-END)
