GOLGOTHAN REMAINS (AU)
The Malign Hordes of Aborrence
— Australian dissonance that barks and gurgles, bleak black and aggressive death metal with angular drums blasting and a muddled thick rhythm.
— Ethereal, still and achingly lovely, eventually crashing into sludgy and unexpected complexity.
The Greatest Dying
— Sharply falling swords, a pummeling black metal, lurching into riffs, and a vocal slice.
— Soothing, strange vocals with guitars that ride high and sludgy massive headbanging.
MORTUUS INFRADAEMONI (Germany)
Omne Vitae In Tenebras Mergit
— Raw, bloody black metal with vocals howling from a parallel universe filled with monster wars and red skies.
Du skæbnesvangre stund
— Epic and vivid black metal, almost folk but more Viking glory.
— Unique vocals and intense solos intensify this stoner heavy metal.
— Just like PAYSAGE D'HIVER (who started their 2020 album with an icy wind), Bhleg repeats a tranquil bird chirping. Peaceful building to guttural, beautiful with rabid, bleak with gorgeous.
— Legendary Meshuggah incorporates a passionate, atmospheric death into their signature sound.
