Supergroup Old Man Gloom has (2) new albums with the same name, the following song is from the "first" album. The second album is a little more moody, but still full of piss.
Promise: Old Man Gloom (MA)(0:28-5:01)
Chris Black is a god of musical prowess, playing drums, bass and/or singing for bands Dawnbringer, High Spirits, Superchrist, Pharoah. Dawnbringer’s Nucleus (2010) is one of my fave albums of all time. This is yet another NWOBHM-influenced, riffy, awesomeness.
The Burning Of Home: Dawnbringer (Chicago)(7:10-11:19)
Full of Hell have hit the jackpot: access to the noise of Merzbow to create a double cd album.
High Fells: Full of Hell and Merzbow (MD and Japan)(12:14-16:45)
One of the best goth/post-punk influenced album this year.
Entropy: Atriarch (Portland)(17:23-22:42)
A short brand new E.P. from the female-led Bog Oak.
The Resurrection Of Animals: Bog Oak (Sacramento)(23:17-27:45)
I expect no less from Behemoth. This is a vinyl-only E.P.
Nieboga Czarny Xiadz: Behemoth (Poland)(28:28-34:33)
Doom that hits the nail on the head: they intertwine slow with incredible riffage. Will keep you guessing. This is a great mini-album.
They Had No Names: Heavydeath (Sweden)(35:11-41:26)
You can basically see this band play in your hometown in someone’s basement, and you would have talked about it for years.
Mayhem: Caskets Open (Finland)(41:55-44:55)
Distorted thrash black metal.
Conquest: Zom (Ireland)(45:51-50:36)
The vocalist brings back Fen to its razor sharp edge again.
Our Names Written in Embers - Part 2 (Beacons of Sorrow): Fen (U.K.)(51:12-57:31)
I can’t listen to this band.
Beyond Stillness: Dire Omen (Alberta)(57:59-END)
