FROZEN DAWN (Spain)
— Mystic Fires of Dark Allegiance
Epic melodic black with immense amounts of thrash groove, wild guitar licks, tight production. Just fucking fun.
CADAVER SHRINE (Netherlands)
— Yet another brilliant Gnaw their Tongues project – check out the new Den Edele Dood that I played on Show 473. This album slaughters, with chugging riffing headchurning with melodic shine.
The Cursed Carrion Crown
— Wow, this speed rips off your face to a grinning skull and a black edge lined with evil vocals. It also surprises with so much heavy metal guitar and ballady-touches. Already a classic.
In Soil Sleeps Secrets
— A proggy death hurricane with so much fun technical prowess.
— Melodic is a weapon here, mixing gossamer organic instrumentation within their sludgy doom, creating atmospheric hypnotic and droney moments. Another stunning album.
— Tithe writhes, but always building to an extreme genre of frenzied pummeling, death screams, and a raw and bloody aggression.
— Ulthar released two albums simultaneously, both proggy, deliciously dynamic, groovy, and outrageously technical.
— Psychedelic instrumental post-metal building into heavy riffage when needed.
