ACID BLADE (Germany)
Ablaze at Midnight
— German heavy metal with ballads and falsetto-King Diamond glam vocals and rocking guitars for your mullet. Lyrics and fists.
CARRION VAEL (IN)
Wings of Deliverance
— Riff hammer that shatters. Explosive death with guitar undulations under the rage of the drummer.
— Hypnotic, languid, trance buildup to psychedelic and atmospheric black metal.
HELL FIRE (SF)
— Earworm guitars in Hell Fire's blissfully groovy thrash and epic heavy metal fun are in a word, astonishing. Energetic, riff-heavy, brutally catchy, with the most expressive solo-loving guitars. Raise your flagon of beer.
GARDEN OF WORM (Finland)
In The Absence Of Memory
— Progressive, meditative, psychedelic rock shimmering that builds into jammy deliciousness.
CARA NEIR (TX)
— Unexplainable electronic, experimental, carnival grindcore. My Best 2-piece of 2013.
EARLY MOODS (Los Angeles)
Return To Salem's Gate
— Super groove, blues and stoner with expressive pagan vocals.
WAILIN STORMS (NC)
— Soulful with a country twang, intense and hypnotic with anguished vocals.
— A blast of old school raw rocking black metal.
