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:

Hamleypa Im Morgen von Einst
On their debut album, Germany's Hamleypa have captured the core traits of post-black metal with relative ease, yet they have additional way to travel as a band, in order to forge a truly distinct sound. Stream:
