GRAND HARVEST (Sweden)
— A death rumble and blast beat meshed with a chilling black blanket, supported by a blistering rasp.
— Another Swedish powerhouse, packed with flying calloused fingertips and melodic glory with black flair and anthemic thrash.
NIGHT DEMON (CA)
In Trance (Live)
— Did you make this for me? An album of Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and Scorpion covers plus incredible retro 80s metal originals. This Scorpions cover was done live in Germany with fucking Uli Roth joining them onstage.
Par le Glaive
— French folk and acidic sharp black metal and a cauldron of beer.
FALLS OF RAUROS (Portland)
Known World Narrows
— That traditional pacific northwest black metal that infuses driving black metal with achingly beautiful melodic rapture.
— Soothing, sinister, whispered vocals in an energetic heavy metal thrash style, both modern and nostalgic.
— Morose, black metal crooning with a death metal groove melodic metal and a sludgy pit of textural guitars and atmosphere.
IDOL OF FEAR (CAN)
— Melodic doom with emotionally-laden gorgeous guitars.
DESOLATE SHRINE (Finland)
Cast to Walk the Star of Sorrow
— Finnish black and heavy fucking death, what else do you want.
