CREPUSCLE

Heavenly Skies

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Creator-Destructor Records, 2019)

Symphonic melodic death metal is a genre where talent and skill, no matter how great, are seldom enough. On their 2nd album the Californian powerhouse shows all of the above in abundance and the songs are very good but, with precious few exceptions, Crepuscle 2019 is a one trick power metal ...

FORMICARIUS

Rending The Veil Of Flesh

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Schwarzdorn Production, 2019)

Symphonic black metal had its hayday in the 90s when bands such as Emperor, Dimmu Borgir and Cradle Of Filth ruled the metal day. The likes of Carach Angren and, to a lesser degree, The Black Dahlia Murder, built up on this legacy for their own stylings. This British quintet draws ...

WEEPING SORES

False Confession

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

If you think that everything has been growled and played in doom death meet the New York trio Weeping Sores who prove that there are paths previously untaken, they know of them, and they travel them with apparent ease, finesse, harmony and emotional impact already on their debut album. This incredible trio ...

1349

The Infernal Pathway

Anmeldt av Trygve Grundvik
(Season of Mist, 2019)

You’ve already seen the score, so let’s just cut to the chase; The Infernal Pathway is not just a good 1349 album, it is a really good 1349 album. TIP manages to bring together elements from every era of the band’s discography, and somehow ends up feeling somewhat concluding in doing ...

INADREAM

No Songs for Lovers

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Echozone, 2019)

The musical collective from Bochum known as INADREAM took me by surprise as the album artwork led me to believe that these guys were a Gothic outfit or perhaps a more electronically inclined rock band of sorts, which makes no sense at all now that I really think about it, but ...

ARMAGEDDON DEATH SQUAD

Necrosmose

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Great Dane Records, 2019)

French quartet Armageddon Death Squad specialize in pummeling old-school death metal with a raw vibe and a vile feel to it. Well, actually, it is not all-out old-school as there are a number of slightly more modern and technical touches to what these fuckers do too, but the bottom line is ...

WOUNDVAC

The Road Ahead

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Corpse Flower Records, 2019)

It is not easy to break through in a genre overcrowded with similar sounding acts and this Arizonian grindcore quartet proves it on their 4th EP, a heavy and pulverising collection of similarly paced and sounding riffs of hardcore, death and thrash origin split into separate tracks, a major problem with ...

DARKMOON WARRIOR

Angels of Dirt - Beasts of Rebellion

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Folter Records, 2019)

The German outfit Darkmoon Warrior offers unpolished and murky black metal of the most vile and loathsome kind – just the way you sickos out there like it! This is as raw and pounding as they come, but there is more than meets the eye to this unholy affair. The majority ...

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 ...
