Whoredom Rife - Dommedagskvad
03.06.2017 | Black Metal

Whoredom Rife's debut album Dommedagskvad contains seven tracks, mostly clocking around 6 minutes, and that makes it a fun and easy listening. So, prepare your body for the Norwegian Black Metal, which is highly melodic. True believers shouldn't be disappointed. Terratur Possessions does it again.

Are you ready for some top notch death doom? If so, you need to hear this debut full-length by the Dutch Façade. Loathe maybe isn't a groundbreaking material but it has everything that we love in this genre. The album's cover is also one of the best achievements this year. Don't miss it!

Necroblood - Collapse Of The Human Race
02.04.2017 | Death Metal

Some of you might think that Venenum has no strong competitors in the death metal category this year, but here come the French Necroblood to prove you wrong. 10 tracks of truly evilish DM should remind you of the early works of Immolation and Convulse. So, do not expect any progressive vibes here. It's pure old school fun!

Bathsheba - Servus
04.03.2017 | Doom Metal
Bandcamp music player

In 2015, Belgian Bathsheba with their two-track EP, The Sleepless Gods, showed some great potential for the future. Two years after, the full-length has finally been released. Servus, as it is called, didn't disappoint and even exceed all the expectations. Michelle Nocon's haunting vocals are strong as ever, the riffs are heavy & memorable, and an occasional saxophone licks ("Ain Soph") just complete the whole musical experience. Servus definitely going to be a strong contender for doom metal album of the year.

ROSK - Miasma
19.02.2017 | Post-Black Metal
Bandcamp music player

Miasma, the debut full-length from the Warsaw-based sextet ROSK is a prime example of post-black metal done right. We get a decent dose of emotions with excellent centering between clean & harsh vocals. Of course, there is no lack of heavier parts and tremolo picking guitars. Everybody will find something to enjoy. This is just another proof that Polish metal is currently at the top.
