ALMØST HUMAN

XS2XTC

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Fastball Music / Normosis Records, 2019)

The Swiss act named Almøst Human is an interesting one in that it mixes and blends progressive metal with something akin to alternative rock and the result is both musically satisfying and surprisingly cohesive on a structural level. I love the way in which totally different parts with atmospheres that are ...

Inner Death

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Blood Harvest Records / Helter Skelter Productions, 2019)

US death mongers Ectovoid have released some rather impressive things that reek of all things rotten and vile since the conception of the band back in 2010 and this upcoming 7" EP/tape EP of theirs entitled “Inner Death” is no different. Foul and vicious death metal with nods to Incantation and ...

Horizon

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Apathia Records, 2018)

Embryonic Cells? Sounds borrowed from Sepultura's song on "Arise". But whether or not it is, this French deathened black metal outfit has a knack for economics, what with a three men lineup: Max (vocals, guitars), Dom (bass) and Djo (drums) while no longer requiring Pierre Le Pappe's keyboarding services, though "Horizon" ...

PALACE

Binary Music

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Records, 2018)

Let me start out by saying that the Swedish ensemble named Palace took me by surprise and pretty much blew me away by means of its arena-sized tunes and countless delightful hooks. One could argue that there are strong and prominent parallels between Palace and the legendary Europe, but I would ...
