Ketzer realises that making trendy blackthrash is less lucrative than jumping on the new found trend of psychedelic black/death n roll. Fortunately, half-hearted death n roll is more entertaining than half-hearted blackthrash.

I usually have heavy distaste for almost all modern hardcore music, but this is incredibly cool and interesting. Got some nice old school metal touches to the riffs every now and then, and the stilted flow works surprisingly well. Despite the ridiculous name that all modern hardcore bands seem to be forced to have under penalty of death.

Worst album of the year. Should be re-titled: "How many artificial distortion filters can we run these songs through?" Legit just sounds like someone's made some really bad raw metal tracks and just layered dozens of distortions filters over them on Garageband. This isn't a new level of extremity, this isn't pushing the boundaries. This is the most regressive form "raw" metal. Listen to Grave Upheaval or Teitanblood if you really want to hear groundbreaking bands that push the folds of death metal to new extremes. Give this trite a pass.

Great little death metal demo from last year. They've just announced their new album so that should be
something to look forward to. Pretty basic, riff-heavy stuff. Features a killer Autopsy cover too.

It feels like so long since I made this, and so much has changed, that each time I've come back to it I react differently. I was initially proud of what I did. Then I became more invested in my newer work. But now, I've become detached from it in many ways. And can partly enjoy it detached from how I was when I made it. And I'm really loving the experience.

Chelsea Wolfe Abyss2.0
The album starts off quite impressive. Lots of filthy noise and softer guitars that coalesce to remind me of her rearlier days, only bigger. The third track is practically a doom metal track with great electronic loops and rambient noise. Then the album just sorta goes off the deep end and ends up with more synthetic sounds and rquestionable production that don't quite match up. The songwriting on some tracks just feels sub-par and rdisjointed. It doesn't really pick itself back up. But the first three tracks remain some of the best work Wolfe rhas produced. Bring me more filthy music.

Have you ever heard a modern band that worships classic thrash and black metal so hard that you think they'll
probably suffer an aneurysm should they even attempt to thrash any goddamn harder than they already do? If
so then you've probably heard Norway's Deathhammer. They aren't your basic 80s thrash cover band, and they
probably couldn't be even if they tried. True thrash courses through the veins of Salsten and Sadomancer, and
if there's a tighter, more vicious and visceral blackthrash album released this year, I'm sure I don't want to
hear it.

After a first listen, this is nothing to me but a bunch of really boring tech death, obnoxiously laced with bad symphonics. Yes, we get it, you are influenced by classical music, stop beating us over the head with it. And why the hell is everybody going nuts over Lyle Cooper as if he's supposed to be the answer for something? He offers nothing here except a shit tonne of generic blast beats and a neat fill here and there. 'The Agony' has a bunch of cool riffs, but the rest of the album is just tepid, generic, wanky crap. Rating might go up in time if I find something more to like in following listens, but I can't imagine the really terrible synths growing on me at all.

Really cool album, with a nice production that is a little muddy but at least it's not incredibly plastic. Kinda reminiscent of old school death metal a la Morbid Angel, but in a brutal tech death style. The yelled vox remind me of Mike Browning. Hints of Ulcerate-esque atmosphere and dissonance here and there too.

The first album, while good, felt like a half-baked, misunderstood interpretation of Gorguts' Obscura. This album feels like it's trying too hard to break that mould and suffers due to lack of interesting songwriting, solid riffs and a guitar tone that doesn't suit the dissonant atmosphere being used so successfully by their contemporaries.
