2021 - Voivod's pseudo-random safari

Well, it's that time of the year again folks :-). Rated or not, all albums listed are considered to be at least 3.4, meaning they're work checking out at least once, imho that is. Feel free to check anything out and drop a comment like whenever. List will progressively be filled with more noteworthy 2021 releases. Supplemental lists will follow as the end of this year approaches.
1Fortress
Don't Spare The Wicked


3.8 - heavy metal from Whittier, California.

Excellent, if hardly groundbreaking, '80s heavy/power metal, that straddles the oceanic fence seemingly separating the namesake scenes in the States and Europe. Favorite track: Children of the Night. Stream: http://fortressofficial.bandcamp.com/album/dont-spare-the-wicked
2RuYYn
RüYYn


3.8 - black metal from France.

Cold, brutal black metal that lacerates the senses, the sonic equivalent of what is aptly depicted in the album art... Favorite track: I. Stream: http://ruyyn.bandcamp.com/releases
3Cauldron Born
Legacy of Atlantean Kings


3.6 - heavy/power metal from Atlanta, GA.

On the surface, this looks like a new album, but comparing its track list with the one in its immediate predecessor, one will see that past the album opener, Legacy of Atlantean Kings is essentially a reprise of ...And Rome Shall Fall. Instrumentally, Cauldron Born is in top shape, and so is their new vocalist (although many of his high pitch takeoffs should have been proofread), while the sound work is modern and extremely heavy. Stream: http://cauldronborn1.bandcamp.com/album/legacy-of-atlantean-kings
4Socioclast
Socioclast


3.5 - grindcore/death metal from San Jose, California.

A concoction of musicians from the greater San Jose extreme metal circuit, Socioclast have a convincing inclination towards grindcore/death metal with a fair load of sludge/doom sound- and song structure-wise. Save for the album closer, the time length of all songs lies well below the two minute mark, however Socioclast seems incapable of escaping the trap of repetitiveness, although the whole thing warrants an appreciable replay value. Favorite song: Eden's Tongue. Stream: http://carbonizedrecords.bandcamp.com/album/socioclast
5Paranorm
Empyrean


3.4 - tech thrash metal from Sweden.

If Empyrean shows anything, it's that these Swedes have progressed considerably since their first EPs. However, they have a relatively long way to go before being considered a notable tech thrash outfit. Their debut has strengths that can be translated as shortcomings at once. Sound work has been adjusted to highlight the admittedly spectacular lead guitar work, but at the same time, the rhythm guitars lack the requisite aggression that's expected from the genre. Moreover, the rhythm section is mostly linear. Paranorm just need to become heavier and apply themselves in the investigation of the tech thrash maze, the way Aspid, old Mekong Delta or 1990 Megadeth did it back in the day. Stream: http://paranorm-se.bandcamp.com/
