Stone Sour Meanwhile In Burbank...
Very good stuff, Stone Sour convincingly deliver on all five covers, despite the dramatic shifts in style. Taylor's vocals in particular, have magnificently been adapted to the task at hand. Favourite tracks: We Die Young & Creeping Death
Devil's Train II
In a nutshell, the sophomore Devil's Train album is an awesome tribute to late '80s glam rock. Liapakis is a great metal vocalist, but his glam rock delivery on II is excellent as well, the production is loud, whereas the default genre arrangements have been beefed with ultra-heavy (almost "nu-metal") guitars and an aggressive, yet party-like attitude.
Cherry Choke Raising The Waters
First contact with the band here, and if anything, Cherry Choke's vintage/psych rock is a solid bet. Some songs have a complete structure, whereas there are cuts which sound more like loose jams, and that's taking its toll in terms of flow. Favorite tracks: Rage On, Where The Sun Rises. Stream:
Terrorfront Terror Arise
This is only a three-track EP, but it's enough to show that the modern death/black metal of this band is notoworthy at least; The sound is excellent, the instrumentation is stiff (it could be a tad more diverse though, especially the rhythm guitars), whereas the overall atmosphere (set by the intro track) is hellish. Stream:
1886 Before The Fog Covers The Mount
On their first album, the Spaniards deliver chilled out (for the most part) '70s heavy rock with ties to pure psychedelia. Great vocals, laid back song writing and a modern sound that strays from "default" vintage directives, make for a worthwhile listen. Favorite track: Flying Whales & Swimming Birds. Stream:
Oceanwake Sunless
First contact with the band here. While the album is anything but annoying, it sort of lacks those ideas and patents that would make it a truly memorable experience. The only clue evident throughout the four temporally prolongued cuts of the album, is the amalgamation of post and death/doom metal, to no great effect though. Stream:
Barus Barus
Quite an interesting proposal on behalf of Bar?s here; Meshuggah's atonal metal gets together with black/blast-beat death/sludge metal, whereas even dubstep style metal has been introduced to the party ("Chalice" brought Burial's "Spaceape" track into mind). The vocal work is beastly and truly adds up to the arrangements, which need a few more nudges, in order to bring the band in front of a truly distinct style. Favorite track: Tarot.
