| ||Thenighttimeproject Thenighttimeproject|
For all those who think that Night Is the New Day is the last, truly magnificent Katatonia album, Thenighttimeproject is an adequate companion, and one that pales in comparison. The atmospheres in Thenighttimeproject's debut are fairly captivating, the vocals are a treat, but more often than not, the arrangements could use a bit more meat; moreover, they feel familiar to the previously mentioned Katatonia album, which is both a good and a... not so good thing.
| ||Helion Prime Helion Prime|
Overall, Helion Prime give out some solid and well produced, modern heavy/power metal. The arrangements are fairly cohesive but little is done for them to become really interesting, whereas the female vocal lines, while having a good pitch, they follow closely the route set by the songs. With more elaborate vocals (up the alley of, say, Diana Serra from Aghora), album would score more points.
| ||Sacramental Blood Ternion Demonarchy|
Bring in mind any of the majors as far as US technical/brutal death metal goes, and Sacramental Blood will match them within mere instants. Their debut album is that good. Although the Serbs don't reinvent the wheel, they execute their arrangements with a ferocity and detail that leave little to no room for dull moments. I mean, for the love of god, the album's second half is even better than the first. Favorite tracks: Sanctimonious, Livid Deaths Descend!, Imposed Resurrection. Album's streaming at play.spotify.com
| ||Iotunn The Wizard Falls|
Last year it was Trial from Sweden, this year's Denmark's turn in delivering a truly captivating piece of adventurous heavy metal to mankind... Iotunn are killing it in every way possible, be it in terms of the behemoth sound production (courtesy of Flemming Rasmussen!!!), or the arrangements in which all ends of metal have been masterfully converged. Don't let this EP slip through the cracks!!! Favourite song: Frost. Stream: http://iotunn.bandcamp.com/releases
| ||Paradox Pangea|
Pangea holds no surprises regarding Paradox's trademark style, but judging from a handful of superb tracks bound to stick with fans for years to come, the rest of the album stands lower with respect to classic material and material found in previous efforts. On the other hand, the loud but digital production does not fully favor the album, with the vocals struggling to stand in between the rest of the instrumentation. Favorite tracks: Ballot or Bullet, Manhunt, Pangea, Alien Godz.
| ||Flotsam and Jetsam Flotsam and Jetsam|
Excluding The Cold, Flotsam and Jetsam erase 20 years of mediocrity, with an album firmly rooted in '80s thrash and classic metal (no wonder why they are still warmly heralded in old school metal lairs such as Greece, namely their 2015 live concert in Athens). The current line-up shreds instrumentally, whereas Erik AK's vocals are still distinguishable from a light year away. Album could have been a true rival to the band's classic stuff, should its sound was livelier, more raw. Favorite track(s): Seventh Seal, Iron Maiden.
| ||Red Spektor Red Spektor|
Red Spektor pick up from where the EP ended, as they give in to the teachings of Jimi Hendrix, among a few other vintage/blues rock behemoths. The album sounds cool in its dedicated minimalism, as these Englishmen are particularly persistent in their adopted riffs and tempos per songs. What's more, the sound is on par with the above description, as it stresses down the already restrained stoner elements in favor of a more vintage tone. Favorite song: Before the Sunrise. Stream: http://red-spektor.bandcamp.com/album/red-spektor
