Entrails (SWE) Obliteration
Two years after their previous album, Entrails return with a solid album of swedeath metal that goes through the genre's motions.
Stormride Stormride
Contrary to what the album cover and title font may imply, Ukraine's Stormride sound like pagans that decided to black/thrash n' roll (in the most convincing of ways), instead of affiliating themselves to more compliant extreme metal genres. Favourite tracks: "Stormride", "Warrior", "Snowfall". Stream/free download:
Defaced (CHE) Forging the Sanctuary
Defaced from Switzerland give out a highly effective slab of brutal death/black metal that's taken its cues from both the US and the European (Polish in particular) schools. The album is fun to listen back-to-back or on a casual basis, despite the fact that there's not much innovation on any sector. Stream:
Noir For Rachel Went Missing
In most cases, outfits and individuals who record one or more albums per year, end up churning derivative/unremarkable works, but the atmospheric/instrumental gothgaze/noise/post-punk of this obscure young Russian aka Noir For Rachel (and Telephone Is Dead), is slowly but steadily flourishing release after release. Favourite tracks: "Phylloxera", "Search For Identity" and "Primary Sex Ratio". Stream:
Bardo Pond Is There A Heaven?
As I was totally unaware of Bardo Pond, the first thing that made me listen to their new "EP" (clocking at almost 30 minutes) was the cover that hinted at Candlemass' Tales of Creation... What's emphatically evident in Is There A Heaven?, is the band's ability in gradually building noteworthy dynamics and atmospheres, while providing a custom interpretation of drone, noise and the blues. Needless to say, but the band is bookmarked for further inspection. Favourite track: In Every Dream Home A Heartache. Stream:
Dizziness Bound by Strength
The band name does anything but hinting at a black metal band, but rest assured, Dizziness is a particularly dependable Hellenic black metal outfit. What sets Bound by Strength in motion is elements adopted from bands like Rotting Christ (music) and Kawir (music/lyrics), and while Dizziness have achieved quite a lot in terms of dynamics, they rest well below both aforementioned acts. Favourite track: Legion. Stream:
Thrinos Pass To The Other Side
Thrinos is a one-man black metal affair from Greece that carries some pros and almost all cons of the said scheme. The flaws of the DIY sound production are readily evident (for example, the drums and the vocals could sound better), whereas the vocals need more color. The above said, the guitars of the album are fantastic on both the slower/melancholic and the blast beat driven cuts of the album. Favourite track: Here There Is Only Death. Stream/free download:
