Double Experience’s sound isn’t metal at all but due to me loving almost anything and everything that has to do with video games, I figured why the hell not. Well, the sound just does not sit well with me as the music belongs on an alternative radio station. Too much poppy rock happening, I like the vocals though. Still, meh. 2.5 out of 5
Giant of the Mountain’s “Moon Worship” is something massively creative and talented, carefully blending elements of black metal into progressive metal, then showing off their skills acoustically while moving towards a sludge and death metal sound. A lot of different sounds combined that ultimately form an enjoyable album to listen to! Definitely check them out and download the album here, I mean they are just giving away the digital version of the album. I highly recommend listening to this right now. Stop reading, click here and press play. Enjoy. 4 out of 5
Acrania hails all of the way from London, England and these guys conjure up as much brutality as they can for their new album ‘Totalitarian Dystopia’. A disgust blend of death metal, slam, guttural death and brutal death with some deathcore sprinkled on top. The result? A hectic style of music that is rather difficult to follow.
Hollow – ‘Mordrake’. Symphonic black metal that is grown up and progressive in a way that isn’t typical but thought provoking and expansive. While the heart of it all may be grim, the writing is better than most acts released these days. Symphonic compositions are tied in well with the crushing black metal art and the result is a fulfilling album that will leave your neck sore. 4 out of 5
Deathstars – ‘The Perfect Cult’ is anything but a perfect album but it has it’s moments of entertainment and enjoyment. They sound like a Swedish version of Rammstein by which I mean they are very industrial, electronic and cheesy. 2 out of 5Continue reading →
Behold! The power of Ohio doom!!!! The music takes over your soul and your ear holes as you embark on a magical quest filled with danger and darkness. Coldfells is a blackened doom band that not only focuses on radical guitar workings and destructive vocals, but are also inspired by local landscapes and Tolkien literature. Of course this is going to be good. I have both songs on the channel now for you to enjoy!
Contemplating the Ineffable! I am not only proud and honored to announce this track premiere, which is a first for Headbang or GTFO, but overly excited that I get to share some of the best music to be released this year in general. Omnihility’s new album ‘Deathscapes of the Subconscious’ just consistently kicks you in the nuts over and over with their music. Their sonic speeds, technical talent and ability to somehow get groove in there and make things catchy just blow me away each and every time I listen to them. Enough blabber though, here is the stream for the new song “Contemplating The Ineffable”:
You know the feeling you get when you listen to well done folk metal similar to Scythia? That overwhelming joy and excitement? Russian pagan/folk metal band Bastion definitely do this for me and invoke maddening headbanging moments. This music is just good and the use of wind instruments is the best I’ve heard so far this year. Bastion definitely bring forth an authentic folk feeling with their metal offerings.
Origin have returned and their latest album is massive destruction. Widespread aggression pointed at nothing particular yet everything falls victim. Omnipresent is the definition of technical death metal, sheer madness and brutality. 2014 has been a radical year for music and Origin definitely provide us with album of the year material.
