DISPYT

Den Ständigt Närvarande Ångesten

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Immortal Frost Productions, 2019)

The foul collective of Finnish dirtbags known as Dispyt offers an interesting take on black metal and crust punk, or rather a mixture of the two genres. The song structures and arrangements are rather simple and that goes for the riffs as well – everything is designed to melt your brain ...

ABYSMALIST

Reflections Of Horror

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Independent, 2019)

The death metal duo of two San Francisco Bay Area (Sacramento) punk, metal, and hardcore veterans, Jeremy Meier (drums, vocals) and Federico Avila (vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards, production, mastering), just released their first demo, "Reflections Of Horror", lyrically soaked in Clive Barker, Patrick Süskind, and "romantic" horror/fabulism, musically, very strongly Obituary-ian ...

DREW FORTUNE

No Encore!: Musicians Reveal Their Weirdest, Wildest, Most Embarrassing Gigs

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Post Hill Press, 2019)

“No Encore!” by author Drew Fortune is essentially a collection of anecdotes and stories written by some very cool (and in some cases god-like) musicians ala Alice Cooper, Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Sammy Hagar (Van Halen) and loads of other skilled and renowned musicians ...

NEPTRECUS

Ars Gallica

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Purity Through Fire, 2019)

The 3rd full length from the French atmospheric black metallers is a powerful and skillful, fairly original testament of their might and creativity somewhere between Dimmu Borgir, Dissection, Dark Tranquillity, Opeth, old Katatonia and early Deceased, but they are remarkably inconsistent, with songs ranging from good to great. Neptrecus, currently featuring ...

MGŁA

Age of Excuse

Anmeldt av Trygve Grundvik
(No Solace Records, 2019)

Whenever a new Mgła release comes around, we simply want it to sound like Mgła. Personally considering Exercises in Futility and With Hearts Toward None as two of my favourite black metal albums of the 2010s, the surprising release of Age of Excuse on September 2nd was one that excited me ...

MAVORIM

Aasfresser

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Purity Through Fire, 2019)

Another one of the ever popular one man ambient black metal bands, Mavorim is a project of a multinistrumentalist/vocalist only known as P., who resurrects Eis (formerly known as Geist) and early Dimmu Borgir, with good to occasionally very good results. Mavorim was created in 2014 but the first demo, "Heimkehr", ...

UNBURNT

Arcane Evolution

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Independent, 2019)

Musically, not much can be written about this, the Canadian black/death metaller's independently released EP. The songwriting is good to sometimes great oscilating between melodic late 90s/early 2000s Dimmu Borgir and late 90s Cradle Of Filth, with some Lamb Of God-ly riffing and vocals. The band was created in 2016 in ...

THE PRICE

A Second Chance To Rise

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Graviton Music Services, 2019)

The Italian producer, musician and songwriter for numerous Italian projects, Marco Barusso, sums up his overall experience in a pop/rock/hard rock solo project involving numerous session musicians, with influences ranging from Pink Floyd to Nevermore, with good if inconsistent, but mostly formulaic, songwriting. Marco Barusso is known from his tenure with ...

OXX

The Skeleton Is Just A Coat Hanger

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Nefarious Industries, 2019)

The Danish cluster grindcorers wear their influences, Napalm Death, Converge and ancient Mastodon, fairly firmly on their sleeves even on their 4th full length, overwhelming with brutal, jazzy noise, brilliant for some, while others will ask for their money back somewhere after the 3rd track. The "we play whatever we feel ...

DARKEND

Spiritual Resonance

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Dark Essence Records, 2019)

This is my first encounter with the Italian masters of ritualistic and symphonic extreme metal that are Darkend and right off the bat, I might as well tell you that I am utterly impressed with this haunting six-track affair of theirs. "Spiritual Resonance" is primarily rooted in black metal and yet ...
