Terror Empire - The Empire Strikes Black

"Adventure? Excitement? A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless." Reckless indeed, bitches! The sheer reckless aggression that Terror Empire serves up will destroy your eardrums like the Empire destroyed Alderaan. Groove, thrash, some death metal, a bit of hardcore, this melange of modern extreme metal lays in wait like an exogorth space slug.

Thulcandra - Ascension Lost

When I think of death metal and black metal mixing in a melodic fashion, I think of Dissection, and you do too. Thulcandra is a band heavily influenced by the aforementioned masters of the genre, and on their new album Ascension Lost, they pack it full with everything a fan of the genre could want.

Infection

Infection is a Peruvian death metal band with influences from the thrash and deathgrind scene. To the date the group has released a six-song EP ("Nothing but Scum") and a full-length album ("Necrokindergarden"). Since their formation, their passion for making music has not declined. On the contrary, they keep the flame of metal alive and expect to consistently deliver brutal music to the world.

The band started in 2006 when guitar player Antonio Palacios decided to partner up with vocalist Guliano Canessa. Both shared the same interest in bringing back the rawness of early death metal. Inspired by such acts as Death, Cannibal Corpse and Monstrosity, they started composing and rehearsing their own songs . 'It was the perfect time to brought that vicious sound back,' stated Antonio. 'I always wanted to be in a group that played this kind of music," added Guliano, pointing to a pile of discs in a shelf where one can distinguish "Spiritual Healing," "Butchered at Birth," and "Imperial Doom."

Iron Fist - Boneshaker

Iron Fist, from Sunny L.A., don't do anything that hasn't been done before. Booze fueled metal punk bashed out at Mach 4 while the vocalist gurgles unintelligibly - before taking the excess reverb into consideration - into the mic. I don't even know what language they speak. I swear the only words I made out the entire four track release were the title track, "Boneshaker". Even then I thought it might have been "For Satam" or "Forsaken"…

So been there, done that…

Orden Ogan - Ravenhead

Over the river and through to woods, to Orden Ogan's new album we go! If you thought that predecessor To The End was epic then wait till you hear Ravenhead. The band delivers another chapter of the goodness we have come to love from them, with new journeys, battles, grief, and pure fucking glory. They simultaneously expanded and refined their signature sound of catchy, resplendent, and beautifully mournful power metal.

They've never quite behaved like other power metal bands, and this album continues to agree. Warm, mid-range vocals with a slight rasp (instead of stratosphere-scraping, ball-shrinking, notes-only-a-dog-can-hear vocals) tell stories of legends, sorrow, adventure, eternal human nature, and so much more. Their group sing-a-long choruses that you know and love are back to assist in full force. Folk elements appear once more to sweep us away and while they do not dominate the landscape here they complement the power metal so fully due to perfect integration into the metal.
