Alkoholizer Free Beer... Surf's Up!!!
Italy's Alkoholizer have recorded the crossover thrash album of the year... The intensity is massive, while the sound lies optimally between "old school" and "over-produced". The wheel is not reinvented in any case, yet the song writing hails and kills, while the instrumental performance often flirts with tech thrash. The above said, the album loses some points due the fact that Alkoholizer are merely paying a worthwhile tribute to their heroes (Anthrax, Exodus, Sacred Reich etc.) and some vocal aberrations, albeit the Italian accent grants the band a character of its own (analogously to what applies for Teutonic thrash outfits).

At Dusk Anhedonia
Judging by the content of Anhedonia, Ad Dusk are fully aware of the dynamics of "monotonous"/majestic "post"/black metal. Nothing really stays in memory except for the record's overall mood, which is enough to grant it a good replay value. On another note, the sound could be a bit more loud. Stream:

Menace Ruine Venus Armata
The ritual noise/drone of these Canadian shamans is as mysterious as it is engaging, especially during the nightly hours... I really should get a hold of their back catalogue. Stream:

Absolutely Free Absolutely Free
Absolutely free are doing what their band name implies, bringing together psych with dream pop, post-rock and some noise. The album's nice, especially the first 2-3 songs, but it merely stays in mind as a good experiment. Favorite track: "Beneath The Air". Stream:

Jex Thoth Jex Thoth
An ensemble of mystics from Madison, Wisconsin resonated with the primordial vibes of this world and had them recorded on tape... Stream:

Sterilizer Sterilizer
Certainly among this year's industrial metal albums that deserve credit, Sterilizer's self-titled debut packs the noise, the metal and the industrial elements into one effective piece of work. Favorite tracks: "Sterilizer", "[Dis]content". Stream:

Torrens Conscientium All Alone with the Thoughts
The list of dependable doom/death metal outfits grows more and more and Ukraine's Torrens Conscientium are a definite entry with their debut album. Majestic/gothic atmospheres, stiff arrangements and genuine gloom make for one of the best soundtracks for times of personal introspection. Stream:
