favorite bands
Acrimonious Sunyata
Acrimonious open up their sound in what can be seen as a definite departure from the nostalgic/claustrophobic ethos of the debut album. It's good, but it does not have the attractively arcane clout of Purulence. Stream:
Inhumatus Terran Genocide
Imagine a mosaic made from bits of US East Coast technical death metal legacy - Death, Suffocation, Cynic, Nocturnus, Morbid Angel - and you instantly have a no-bs view of the business these up-state New Yorkers are bringing to the table. Most deservedly so, band has recently inked a deal with Ultimate Massacle Productions, and a full-length album is on the works. Favourite track: Systematic Indoctrination. Stream/"name your price" download:
Odour of Death Odour of Death
Odour of Death make a solid start from themselves with this EP, yet they have a long way ahead of them in terms of forging a distinct style, music/sound-wise. Stream at will:
Eskiz Beterin Beteri Var
In their debut album whose title translates as "There is worse than the worse", Eskiz from Turkey deliver a mad-driven, vigorous slab of heavy rock that's full of diversity and little surprises along the way. At the same time however, Beterin Beteri Var is standing on the shoulders of giants like MC5, Led Zeppelin and some of their modern peers like Red Hot Chilly Peppers (see favorite track). Favorite track: Deliriyorum. The album is streaming at open.spotify.com
Refuge Thrash Patient Zero
Band sounds decent, but someone forgot to crank up the volume before recording the whole thing. Stream:
Shaarimoth Temple of the Adversarial Fire
In their second album, Norway's Shaarimoth strive for their own death/black metal version of the grand grimoire, but despite the instrumental prowess and the apparent wealth of influences and ideas, the cohesion of the arrangements and in turn, the album's replay value, are not on par with the band's level of ambition. While not bad in any case, the album sounds like the equivalent of a closet in which too much content is crammed, its majestic sound production included, which hosts extremity and melody in an unbalanced waltz. Stream: https://wtcproductions.bandcamp.com/album/temple-of-the-adversarial-fire
Asfixia Tormenta
While Asfixia's song writing is decent, it still has a long way to go in order to yield truly memorable instances, the same applies for the sound engineering, whereas the coarse and over-the-top vocals don't help either. That said, there's something that kept me through the entire album, and that is Asfixia's incredible guitars, which like a diamond in the rough. Stream/"name your price" download:
