My Thoughts On The New PSYCROPTIC Single “Echoes To Come”

psycroptic echoes to comePsycroptic comes from the tiny Australian island known as Tazmania and in the past 15 years they’ve gone from that small island to a worldwide domination and have become a face melting phenomenon in the mean time. They may not be your favorite death metal band but you definitely have heard of them before or recognize the name. The band is gearing up for a new release and in the process of readying the album for mass consumption, they will be releasing a single this week that I think death metal and tech death fans will enjoy. If you have never heard of them before, open your ears and prepare for an exciting endeavor of whimsical audio asskickery.

Review: Meadows End – The Sufferwell

meadows endOkay. Here is something magical that hit my inbox and proceeded to keep me enthralled the entire listen and had me wanting to replay the album constantly. I even took a break from it just to revisit it and make sure I wasn’t insane. Meadows End, a symphonic/melodic death metal band from Sweden gives us the most astonishing sounding music since I heard Caladan Brood’s “Echoes of Battle”.

This is something magical, something brilliant and something I can listen to on a daily basis.
