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 Voodoo'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!

Vulture Industries - The Tower

Extreme Prog / Avantgarde Metal 02.10.2013

Long gone are the Arcturus copycat days, now Vulture Industries just released their most personal album to date. Soaring, theatrical, twisted, deeply emotional, awesome.

Try here or there!

The Ocean - Pelagial

Post-hardcore / symphonic / sludge / and then some... 14.05.2013

Precambrian part II, at last!! Well, quality-wise, that is; musically it's a different beast...

Are you ready to dive in the deepest of waters?

Hacride - Back To Where You've Never Been

Metal (melo-prog-extreme-djent-Hacride) 22.04.2013

With a renewed line-up (featuring Klone's drummer, no less), Hacride are back with their most accessible, melodic yet technical album to date. But, most of all, it's the emotional intensity that truly makes the difference.




Terra Tenebrosa - The Purging

Crushing. 27.02.2013

Easily as crushing and terrifying as The Tunnels, but in a different, more dynamic and less claustrophobic way.

A must-listen, no less.

A Forest Of Stars - A Shadowplay For Yesterdays

Unique Atmospheric / Avantgarde Black 24.07.2012

Maybe, maybe, more accessible than their previous two offerings, yet still completely unique, A Forest Of Stars didn't disappoint at all with this new gem of an album.

Terra Tenebrosa - The Tunnels

Claustrophobic 22.01.2012

A description? What? You want a description? It's simple, really. Go in a cave, a really deep one. Now get relentlessly crushed by tons of rocks. That'll do the trick.

Or, in other words, it's some dissonant avant/post/sludge/drone stuff. Or something else. But who cares, as long as it's awesome?



Thy Catafalque - Rengeteg

Beautiful 02.01.2012

What? Isn't "Beautiful" descriptive enough? OK, fine then, what about "avant-garde atmospheric metal with BM roots"? Yeah, that's what I thought. Beautiful is better.

And Hungarian does really sound poetic.

Textures - Dualism

Textured Goodness 30.09.2011

As technical and progressive as Silhouettes, but this time violence and wildly evolving song structures left some place for finely crafted melodies and atmospheres.

A new Textures album, a new wonder to immerse oneself in. Simple as that.

Lazuli - [4603 Battements]

Unique Prog Rock 30.08.2011

Trying to resume this album with the Prog Rock tag is bound to fail. This is some beautiful, eerie, haunting music, with otherworldy soundscapes (thanks to the Léode), finely crafted melodies and some quite crushing crescendos. Because no, they aren't metal, but they can play some heavy and powerful stuff indeed.

And the mood? Think somewhere around Riverside, but maybe a bit more sad and despondent with the actual state of the world. And for those of you who can actually understand French, you're in for a good deal more listening pleasure, as the lyrics are poetic and really beautifully written.

A must listen for prog fans... and all the others too!

Devin Townsend - Deconstruction

Devin "Over-The-Top" Townsend 08.07.2011

Mix the madness of Infinity with the whole stupid craziness of Ziltoïd, and Strapping Young Lad's multi-layered sonic aggression. Add an orchestra, and a bunch of the best extreme vocalists around.

And serve with a cheeseburger!



Morgoth - Odium

Industrial Death Metal 13.06.2011

Death metal and industrial don't blend? My butt! Morgoth were not the first to mix both styles, but they certainly were precursors anyway, with this fantastic beast of an album, released in 1993.

Of course, the band was criticized back then by the 'fans'. Forget that, forget the latest Morbid Angel, and remember the re-united Morgoth will play some festivals this summer.
