In The Shadow are a Kansas City band whose been around since 2008 and I’ve known about them ever since they first started playing shows here in a few venues with a few other bands that had just formed. They have since opened up for many major touring acts (Mushroomhead, Soulfly & Spineshank to name just a few) and always steadily gained fans and respect within the local scene here. Their familiar new wave of american metal sound (i.e. Chimaira, Shadows Fall) is blended well with 90′s metal moments (Deftones & Fear Factory) and adding their own melodies and heavy riffing to it all definitely gives In The Shadow their own sound that is appealing and enjoyable. This new EP is a headbanging good time as they bring forth melody and big groove to the table.
Portugal’s most recognised death metal act, Annihilation, are self-releasing their new EP The Undivided on November 4th, 2014. Founded in early 2004, this six-track release of overpowering metal is the band’s follow-up to the 2010 debut, Against The Storm (Copro/Casket Records). A single from the EP, “The Great Cycle”, was released as a digital download a few months ago and a lyric video.
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!
One of my newly favorite bands Eternal Valley have released a new EP of 4 songs that were recorded around the time the last LP, Screams of Eternal Emptiness, was recorded. The result is just 4 remarkably atmospheric/depressive black metal that wander within the forest of doom and despair. Concealed In Nothingness is not just 4 extra songs that have no true place, these are damn good songs that deserve to be played loud and proud by everyone.
Combining thirsty newcomer musicians with veteran masters, White Empress delivers quality metal onto unexpected listeners. Lead by Cradle of Filth’s Paul Allender and the talented bassist Chela Rhea Harper (VII, Coal Chamber), the duo grab a handful of wildly driven musicians who all seem to come together all too well. The EP is 4 songs of quality melodic heaviness.
Glass Cloud are streaming their new EP “Perfect War Forever”, featuring Josh Travis and his 9 string guitar of death. The EP will drop October 22nd. Head on over to Guitar World to check out this beast.
Ingested have been working on a new EP.
As sad and shitty as a crippled bull may sound, this album is definitely not some dying helpless being sitting in the corner of a farm. No, this music from Black Crown Initiate is damn good. Progressive metal incorporating acoustic melodies and clean vocals along side crushing riffs and screams is few can pull off very well. I constantly see this band being compared to Opeth and while I can see the similarities, I honestly think this band is nothing like them when you truly listen to it. No…this is better.
