— A proggy dance with limbs flailing, until it mashes to a blast-beated death and thrash, a tumbling avalanche of vocals, and proggy guitar compositions. One of the best already.
OAK PANTHEON (MN)
— Galloping death, heartbreaking rocking post-metal, with vocals that ride high and lyrics to memorize. Reminded me of Tool and Opeth.
OMEGA INFINITY (AU)
Iron Age (feat Adrienne Cowan)
— Album cover is perfect to couple with the sound. Black metal textured with reverb and keyboards twinkling, creating atmospheric space to allow your brain to float.
Absence of Heaven
— Melancholy, doomy melodic black metal, a sharply bladed vocalist to cut through. The heavy metal guitar ballads were welcome.
The Cryptid and the Iron Bird
— Hardcore-influenced chomping atmospheric death with builds and immense riffs.
CULT OF FIRE (Slovakia)
— Sure, an Indian Hare Krishna melodic is definitely a good/normal addition to a savage black metal. This band made it to my Best of 2020 list.
— Clutching pearls. This is a driving black metal and a swoop of energetic thrash that makes this deliciously head-churning.
This Aesthetic Life
— A beautiful sultry death with meditative stillness and beautiful piano.
Prof. Arronax’ descent into the vast oceans feat. Ultha
— Experimental doom, oppressive and introspective.
