| ||American Hell The Great Dying|
This is some decent metalcore right here, but for the time being American Hell are going through the genre's motions.
| ||Silent Voices Reveal the Change|
This is a decent '90s progressive rock/metal album, however there's not much in it that will grant a good replay value.
| ||Enabler Shift Of Redemption|
The clue of this excellent EP lies in Enabler's superb crossover from metallic hardcore (think none other than Converge) to Swedish death/thrash metal (Abducted-era Hypocrisy) and back. The last (instrumental) track is a good example of early '90s atmospheric death metal (Ophidian Wheel-era Septic Flesh) blended with atmospheric post-hardcore. Highly recommended!!
| ||Mist (SI) Demo 2013|
Slovenia rocks and so does this all-female outfit with two songs of pretty decent but rather generic doom (more)/stoner (less) metal.
| ||Tad Morose Revenant|
Tad Morose have started climbing again that very mountain, whose summit they had conquered in 2003 with Modus Vivendi. The first half of the record is what Swedish power/doom/thrash metal is all about, in contrast to the second half which rehashes the first. With 8 songs, and a more careful riff and song arrangement selection, things would be better, but the band is starting all over again and material inconsistency is justified up to a point. Also, the sound production, while clear and strong in principle, cannot compensate for its digital character and the somewhat noticeable amount of power that is detracted from the record's mate
| ||Exarsis The Brutal State|
With one foot stepping on Bay Area and the other on the more raw European school, this band and album are in the top 5% of the worldwide thrash revival scene. Immense technical skills at all instruments and insane vocals (imagine Tim Baker from Cirith Ungol thrashing) are combined with a totally FRENZIED (at last!!!!!!) performance and a warm, thick, analogue sound production that avoids the sterile pitfalls most of their peers fall in.
| ||Fates Warning Darkness in a Different Light|
On their 11th album, Fates Warning give way to extrovert heavy rock at the expense of their inherent introspective conduct. The album refrains from revealing its merit during the first few listens, yet it is a slow grower and it kicks serious ass live.
