favorite bands
Virgin Steele Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation
Music is decent and all, however Defeis' vocals are beyond triteness.
Mirada A War Without Words
The band address itself as "nu-metal" but all that's in store herein is a total lack of direction in terms of arrangements, combined with merely decent instrumental performance and poorly produced sound. Stream: https://miradanc.bandcamp.com/album/a-war-without-words-3
Blackend Horizon Hivernale... Und Der Rest Ist Nur Schatten
I'm more than certain that the guy responsible for this band put a lot of work into this album, the atmospheric black metal included herein is somewhat decent, however the sound is seriously flawed, in the sense that one has to crank up the volume in order to merely listen to what's going on. Stream:
Brightly Painted Corpses A Candle Set in a Vacant Rib Cage
In most cases, one-man metal bands are lacking in more sectors than one - production, arrangements, performance etc - however Dan London aka Brightly Painted Corpses has come up with an interesting mix of art rock, eerie/keyboard driven ambience and doom/black metal. Every listening session is just as good as the next one. Favorite track: Polluted Delta. Stream:
Missa Mortvm Et Lux Perpetua Luceat Eis...
One-man black metal projects tend to be more of a miss than a hit in terms of the actual music, however Missa Mortvm are definitely an exception. While the focus is solidly fixed on traditional black metal (with intermissions of melody), there are mere nuances of gothic, post metal and ritual music, whose further development could grant the album a distinct merit. On the other hand, the sound production could've been done more carefully (for example, the fluctuation of volume during the transition from "Caos Nocturno" to "Amissa Anima"). Favorite track: Caos Nocturno. Stream:
Tysondog Cry Havoc
NWOBHM heroes Tysondog return after 19 years with a new album, and while it's commendable that they strived for a more modern metal sound, it's also unfortunate that the whole LP comes flat on every sector (sound production, arrangements etc.). Sometimes, it's best for old school to remain as such...
Speed Whore The Future Is Now
The Future Is Now sounds like a lost collaboration Venom, Sodom and Hellhammer back in the early and formative '80s; this is nothing but a huge compliment for this German company of metal-patch-vested gentlemen. The actual music is a messy yet engaging mix of punk, NWOBHM, thrash and (early '80s) black metal, with the vocals being an abyssal highlight all the way through. Those disappointed by the new Venom album, should get a hold of Speed Whore's debut album as soon as possible: Stream:
