Soreption brings us a type of technical death metal that studies more within the realm of well written complex riffs, delicious tone and quality production rather than useless guitar wankery. With fierce precision and maniacal execution, this band keeps it gnarly while maintaining quality song structure.
Alterbeast comes around with an astonishing bad ass debut album on their freshly signed label (Unique Records) and the effort put into the new album, Immortal, is on a level of expertise few can pull off when you are this new to the metal scene. Alterbeast comes at you with an attack that legendary bands know how to pull off and the aggressiveness from Immortal is consistent and worthy of a few listens.
This fine Thor’s Day evening I shall catch up on some reviews. Covering new releases from Nigromante, Down From The Wound, Aborted Fetus and Lay Down Rotten. Come see what is good and what is left on the shelf.
Coming very soon to Relapse Records is the doom anthem of 2014. Culted returns with a depressing, dark, bleak, black, cimmerian, cold, desolate, dismal, dreary, wretched, gloomy, melancholic and miserable album called Oblique to All Paths. I think you get the picture…
Beyond music, beyond good and evil…comes a strange new band that want to demolish the landscapes, destroy what you know about metal and bring you a new everlasting darkness. Lvcifyre brings you 3 perfectly blended genres of extreme metal and the result is the carefully crafted abyss that is “Svn Eater”.
Ah, the debut album from Swedish musician Elnefial, he comes forth with a devastatingly brilliant death/doom/black album called Symptoms of Sickness. The bearded gent handled everything on the album and I must say, it’s god damn inspiring.
Today’s choice cuts of metal meat come from the black ambient side of things, excluding Nilfgaard which is more of a melodic death metal act. Each band is quality in it’s own way.
It’s been a long time since I have been able to review some music. This will not go into great detail but it’ll be a brief description of the music as well as a score. Things have been hectic around the holidays and it looks like it may slow down a little bit for me. Today I shall discuss and score the bands Immortal Bird, Rolling Through The Universe, Of Solitude & Solemn and Astarot.
