Schammasch - Contradiction

Melodic Black/Death 11.12.2014

Here's one of the few albums from this year that's actually deserving of all the hype it's been getting. The sophomore effort from this Swiss foursome is amazingly detailed and incredibly varied in its songwriting. At times takes a slow and trancelike black metal approach, with surprisingly beautiful solos to accompany. At others, pounds you into dust with a furious death metal crunch, and at other moments still is extremely relaxing in its attention to melody and atmosphere. A powerful blend of personalities, and a worthy addition to any extreme metal fan's musical library.

Perhaps one could say the diversities are... a contradiction?

Ancient Bards - A New Dawn Ending

Epic Power Metal 07.12.2014

Ancient Bards remains one of the most incredible and unique power metal bands. Strangely underrated, their sheer energy is a force of nature. With powerful vocals, soaring guitars, and punishing drums, they manage to be symphonic and "balls out" at the same time. Their 3rd album is darker than ever.

Giant Squid - Minoans

Post / avantgarde / experimental metal 29.11.2014

Giant Squid continue to evolve. They are hard to put in a box because every song is a tantalizing experiment. Minoans reveals itself slowly with shorter songs, powerful blasts and instrumental finesse. There is refinement in the melodies and a perfect marriage between the voices of Jackie Perez Gratz and Aaron Gregory. The enticing cello and sorrowful atmosphere of the songs form layered waves of exotic sounds. Giant Squid gracefully offer us another treasure from the sea.

Enjoy!

Morost - Solace In Solitude

Progressive Groove Death Metal 29.11.2014

Morost plays the grooviest, yet most beautiful death metal in Slovenia, or just about anywhere else on Earth.

Excellent vocals, a thundering bass, dynamic guitars, and blast beats in all the right places.

Fall in love at Bandcamp.

United Progressive Fraternity - Fall In Love With The World

Prog 27.11.2014

A cheesy band name if there ever was one but, man, do these Australians make up for it music-wise. Of course this won't come as a surprise to those of you who know the now defunct Unitopia. To the rest of you I can only advise to trust my judgement. This here is one spectacular progressive rock album.

Try the teaser or listen to "Intersection."

Memest - Bastards And Liars

Ugly 70's Metal 26.11.2014

In the vein of late-70's metal, when metal sounded, and looked, like Lemmy. Ugly. And fun.

Down - Down IV - Part Two

sludge 17.11.2014

Doomy, Sludgy Stonerrifferic hails to Sabbath. Sure, Phil's voice sounds a tad ravaged by time, but group has it's mojo on with second part of IV.

Cool Cavemen - Funkloric Trip

Frog funk party 16.11.2014

You want a party? You've got a party! The French provide and everyone's invited! I believe somewhere there's probably a law of some kind or other against having so much fun on a record. Time to dust off that party sombrero of yours.

Listen to the album at Bandcamp.

The Body - Split LP [Split]

The Body/black metal 10.11.2014

The Body does their The Body thing for the first half, then Sandworm takes over and sandworms you to fuck with their early Burzumish, garage rockish, raw black metal.

Nero Di Marte - Derivae

meloproggy post-death (and stuff) 01.11.2014

Ever wondered how Ulcerate would sound if they were less extreme and more progressive? That's Nero Di Marte for you: a melodic take on the post-death sound, less suffocating but maybe more disquieting.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio - Enfant Terrible!

Jazz songwriting meets stoner rock guitar 21.10.2014

Ooh, this is so bloody sweet! Free form jazz-like songwriting meets heavy, stonerish guitar - this stuff feels like a half hour slow guitar jam. Mind you, no vocals.

Listen to the album teaser here or the first track "Laughing John" on the homepage.

Progenie Terrestre Pura - Asteroidi

Inside Samus Aran's brain 20.10.2014

Coming off of a powerful debut with last year's U.M.A, this Italian BM duo decides to follow it up with a curveball, a nonmetal EP. Best be off with you if you're looking for the more aggressive side of the band's personality with this one. Asteroidi is for those listeners who delighted in the ringy ding ding electronics of the debut, and wished to see the band go deeper with them, an effort at which they certainly succeed here.

Beware the Metroid scum.

Trepalium - Voodoo Moonshine

Swing Death Metal 19.10.2014

Supersexy Swingin' Sounds? Hell yeah!

Trepalium have been searching since XIII for the perfect mix between the aggression in death metal and the swing and catchiness in jazz. Well, they nailed it perfectly with that awesome EP!

Check Moonshine Limbo's video if you haven't already!



Yob - Clearing The Path To Ascend

Heaviness incarnate 12.10.2014

Four songs, one hour of pure heavy and pounding doomy stuff. Dynamic, entrancing, atmospheric, all at the same time.

Beware, this beast is HUGE!
