Cherry Choke Raising The Waters
First contact with the band here, and if anything, Cherry Choke's vintage/psych rock is a solid bet. 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. Stream/"name your price" download:
Sorcerer In the Shadow of the Inverted Cross
The release of Sorcerer's demos in one package back in the mid '90s, was one of the reasons Trevor Perez (of Solitude Aeturnus fame) founded Brainticket Records at that time. Fans of Swedish power/doom metal have been patiently waiting for the outfit to release new music since that time, so Sorcerer's debut LP will quench their copious longing. Analogously to the last Veni Domine album, the Swedes have let "external" elements (melodic hard rock/metal) to blend with their power/doom metal. Rhythm section holds no surprises, however the vocals are excellent, whereas both guitarists are top notch lead guitar shredders. As for the arrangements, t
Wedge (DE) Wedge
The debut Wedge album is quite the tribute to '60s hippie/garage rock. Not utterly engaging, but certainly entertaining. Stream:

  • dragoth Hey mate, you might not remember, but a while back you gave a rating for the last Abandoned by Light album (my project) and gave me some advice on how to improve, well I just released the latest album last week, and was hoping you may take a listen, and let me know what you think? Not asking for a review or anything, just an opinion on whether it's an improvement over the last one. Thanks: https://perpetua.bandcamp.com/album/no-god-no-sun-no-future
