HAUNTER

Sacramental Death Qualia

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(I, Voidhanger Records, 2019)

Ever since Opeth abdicated their progressive death metal throne with the 2011 "Heritage" the likes of In Mourning and Barren Earth sought to reseat it. With their 2nd opus this Texan trio merges the 1995-1998 period with Gorguts, Deathspell Omega and Immolation, as a challenge to all concerned, for one of ...

WINTERFELL / CINEASTRE

Songs From a Time Forgotten

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Independent, 2019)

Cineastre (Germany) was just something that I stumbled on quite recently while browsing for releases pertaining to said genres, and as it turns out, I have found myself listening to this raw and atmospheric output a lot during my early and often-times solitary shifts at work. Each project brings two compositions ...

V

Led Into Exile

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Suicide Records, 2019)

Sludge/doom/post-hardcore/post-metal is a genre meld which can yield highly interesting compositions or it can merely highlight its creators' ability to do so without putting it in notes. This latter reality is of this Swedish ensemble's 2nd album, which feels grossly understated whether or not this was the original intent. The quartet ...

COME BACK FROM THE DEAD

The Rise Of The Blind Ones

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Transcending Obscurity Records, 2019)

In the new wave of old school death metal, as we would call the bands inspired by old Death, Obituary and Paradise Lost and Bolt Thrower, which often include the Swedish death metal (i.e. Dismember, Entombed, Grave, Unleashed), there's a constant supply, which this Spanish quintet is yet another decent example ...

FORMICARIUS

Rending the Veil of Flesh

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Schwarzdorn Production, 2019)

British black metallers Formicarius unleashed this grim and melodically rich affair of theirs just a few weeks ago, and if you dig the more symphonic and frostbitten avenue of said genre, this 9-track opus might just be for you. The emphasis is quite clearly on atmosphere and diversity, which entails that ...

CLOUD RAT

Pollinator/Do Not Let Me Off The Cliff

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Artoffact Record, 2019)

If you look at the cover of this, the grindcore Michigander's 4th album, thinking that this must be a typical genre release in the vein of Brutal Truth, Converge, Napalm Death, Nasum or Norma Jean, with songs shorter than an average orgasm and occasional brilliance, think again. There's more than meets ...

GREVIA

Misophonic

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Lethal Scissor Records, 2019)

If you look at the cover of the very first recording from this Sicilian grindcore/death metal ensemble thinking that this must be a typical grindcore/death release in the vein of old Misery Index, Napalm Death and Nasum, with songs shorter than an average orgasm and occasional brilliance, you'd be right.Take pre-Misery ...

FLYING COLORS

Third Degree

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Mascot Records, 2019)

I must confess that this is my first encounter with the hugely skilled Flying Colors featuring such heavyweights as drummer Mike Portnoy (Winery Dogs, ex-Dream Theater), guitar-wizard Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs, ex-Kansas), keyboard-maestro and vocalist Neil Morse (Transatlantic, ex-Spock's Beard), bassist Dave LaRue (Dixie Dregs, ex-Joe Satriani), and vocalist ...

WITCH VOMIT

Buried Deep In A Bottomless Grave

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(20 Buck Spin, 2019)

The 2nd album from the Oregonian death metallers brings a barrage of flawed old school death metal in the vein of old Morbid Angel, Immolation or Carcass with a slight modern touch, plus the inconsistent production additionally spoils the fun. Formed in 2012 as a duo of Tony "Tempter" Thomas (guitars, ...
