Doom Londoners who incorporated rasp vocals and melody in a huge album.
Morrs Tempest: Hang the Bastard (London) (0:28-5:50)
Beautifully integrated thrash, energizing 1349’s thick black sound.
Postmortem: 1349 (Norway) (7:08-11:25)
Garage desert rock, but way better than you are thinking.
Dragon Snort: The Well (Austin) (11:49-16:44)
Philosophers Nightbringer have incredible production – dense noise is articulated perfectly. Their last 2 albums have been their best, which is usually not what happens for a band that has been around since 1999.
I Am the Gateway: Nightbringer (Colorado) (17:36-25:07)
Bulletbelt sound like a female-led Skeletonwitch. Fast and furious death.
Murderer's Collar: Bulletbelt (New Zealand) (26:01-30:41)
Orange Goblin is going super jammy stoner strong with their eighth album.
Mythical knives: Orange Goblin (U.K.) (31:21-36:06)
Garage-punk mixed with psychedelic, twinges of post-punk and hardcore. A cave-like sound overall.
Dazeripper: Okkultokrati(Norway) (36:38-42:22)
Gritty thrash band, Philadelphia-style.
Howling Void: Blood Storm (Philadelphia) (43:38-48:57)
Bluesy-folk, yes, completely different from brutal. Incorporating some thick doom-y rock in parts.
Shake the Soot From Your Boots: Bask (Asheville, NC) (49:40-54:16)
Very clean black metal, with some avant-garde noise
Henosis: Blut Aus Nord (France) (55:03-END)
