favorite bands
Eclipse (SWE) Armageddonize
Armageddonize is hard/glam rocking metal greatly done, period. The Swedes have all it takes in store; Excellent vocals, excellent choruses, arrangements and instrumental skills that will keep the replay value intact despite being derivative, and a much needed optimism, as far as lyrics go.

Bloody Brotherhood Ritual of Blood
Solid old school death metal with grind and thrash elements, that pays its dues to the masters of the said genres. Stream:

Trial (SWE) The Primordial Temple
On their debut album, Trial from Sweden give out a solid slab of old school heavy metal, in the vein of peers like In Solitude and Portrait. While the band has done a decent job overall, the arrangements and the individual performances could have been more consistent. Stream:

Vestige of Virtue Sophia
Nominally, Sophia is based on various aspects of gothic/doom metal. While the expected gloom is there, there are no standout sites in the arrangements, the vocals or the sound production. Trivia: Drums on the album are performed by Shaun Steels (ex-My Dying Bride) Stream:

Lectern Fratricidal Concelebration
Lectern's debut sounds as an old Morbid Angel (of the first two albums)/Nocturnus/Slayer hybrid, however the Italians have added some character of their own (check the groovy passages in "Lordless"). In case anyone yearns for tech death/thrash metal as it was done in the early '90s, Fratricidal Concelebration is a jam. The album is streaming at Spotify.

Morbid Fog Daemones
I don't know what's the case with the previous two albums, but Daemons lacks the punch that made early '90s Hellenic black metal a worldwide metal commodity. Stream:

Daorson Daorson
This little EP is quite a fill in case someone's "running out" of raw black metal supplies. Stream/free download:
