FM

Synchronized

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Records, 2020)

When those fabulous first chords and tones of FM’s latest record “Synchronized” emanate from the speakers, you just know that you are in for a treat. Melodically rich and ridiculously catchy not to mention exceptionally well-played, the British rockers are firing on all cylinders here and this is an exciting and ...

PARADISE LOST

Obsidian

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Nuclear Blast, 2020)

When John Milton wrote his timeless classic he could not foresee that he would energize one of the most creative, versatile and eclectic bands in heavy metal. And just like "Paradise Lost" (and "Paradise Regained") inspired much Christian (not necessarily biblical) tradition, Paradise Lost birthed two powerful genres: doom/death (along with ...

BEAR

Propaganda

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Pelagic Records, 2020)

Looking at the cover of the Belgian progressive hardcore/metallers' 4th full length I wonder which meaning of the word "bear" do they associate their band's name with: the carrying of loads or the wild animal, although, if the musical content is any indication, it's probably both and therein is the ingenious ...

WINTERFYLLETH

The Reckoning Dawn

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Candlelight Records, 2020)

Except for Graveir's "King Of The Silent World" it seems there have not been any interesting black metal albums lately, but then again, I haven't been really looking around for them, so the 7th offering by the English quintet Winterfylleth really took me by surprise, with the excellent mix of old ...

OMNIARCH

Omniarch

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Independent, 2020)

It could be argued that bands such as Arsis, Revocation and The Black Dahlia Murder, while starting out as melodic death metal bands, because of their incredible instrumental prowess and their ability to seamlessly meld different genres, ended up creating what can be called a new, as of yet unnamed, style, ...

Gus G. has made a name for himself over the past 20 years with his superior skill on guitar and songwriting second to none. He's spent time in Dream Evil, Arch Enemy, and most notably in Ozzy Osbourne's band, but his primary project and focus has always been Firewind, an act ...

HAYK ERSEMERCI

Hayk Ersemerci

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Selfreleased, 2020)

The solo artist extraordinaire Hayk Ersemerci presented just this one eponymous EP for our amusement and consumption but, sadly, I cannot find any info on where the man comes from. Perhaps, it is better this way so that we can focus on the music at hand which is very good, indeed.While ...

And the Grammy award for the weirdest sludge/doom metal record goes to "Sanctuary", Alkymist's 2nd album after "Element" EP (2018) and eponymous LP (2018). On the guitar basis a'la Entombed's "Wolverine Blues" or any Vallenfyre's record a growling vocal a'la Nicholas John Arthur Holmes (Paradise Lost, Bloodbath) or Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise ...

ICON OF EVIL

Icon of Evil

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Selfmadegod Records, 2020)

In my review of Czerń's excellent "Zgliszcza" album (5/6) I claimed that there was more to the Polish death metal than the Trinity Of Death (Azarath, Behemoth, Vader). Czerń was exhibit A and now these Lower Silesians from Wrocław, Icon Of Evil, featuring Rafał "Mokry" Pietras (vocals), Kamil Folga (guitars), Łukasz ...
