Oado Life Era
Oado have made a wonderful folk album, the atmosphere is overwhelming, however it's that very atmosphere rather than the compositions themselves, that truly remains upon the completion of every listening session.

Red Spektor Red Spektor
What's a display here is badass retro hard rock with traces of stoner rock. The wah-wah guitars are all over the place, the sound production is on par with the adopted music style, and the groove is relentless at places.

Vega (USA-WI) Vega
Some really tight (and loose at the same time!) doom/stoner metal at display here, with some great moments like the epic album closer, "Machine", "Highway" and "Behemoth" etc. Vega certainly know how to build tension through short or extended jams.

Sanctuary The Year the Sun Died
Past tense to future tense and a new chapter unfolds for Sanctuary and maybe (?) Seattle metal. Apart from the involved heavy/power metal style, Sanctuary develop a stronger penchant for doom and gloom in several songs, whereas their discrete opening to transcendental heavy rock with The Doors cover "Waiting For The Sun" and their own "The Dying Age" is more than welcome.

HORNSS No Blood, No Sympathy
California's HORNSS throw equal dosages of old fashioned hard rock and stoner rock into their cauldron, and come up with a great album that's beefed up with energy and amplifier feedback. Band could easily go on tour with Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats.

Funereus ......Return Of The Old Goat
On their sophomore album, Mexico's Funereus give out an awesome crossover between the "second wave" and the "Motorhead/thrash" ends of black metal. Excellent sound production and frantic performance make for an album that easily files under black metal's best releases for this year.

Abbotoir Reveal
Normally, Irland's Abbotoir could be adequately described as a great funeral doom/death metal band with sudden but welcome black metal outbursts. What brings them, though, to the brink of "awesome" is their know-how in combining the said genres with hellish drone and majestic ambient/goth passages. All three songs exceed the 20 minute mark, yet they are anything but boring, provided that the listener has made the necessary time and patience to digest the album. Apart from the - typical for drone - perpetual repetition of musical themes, Abbotoir's patent in turning the guttural vocals sound to a distant sonic blur works very very well regardi

  • dragoth Hi, I saw that you'd given a rating to the new 'Abandoned by Light' album, which is my project (I'm Karhmul) I just wanted to thank you for listening to the album, sorry you didn't enjoy it, but if you have any ideas on how to improve with the next album (which i'm currently writing) I would love to hear them
