Dewi's Dungeon // January 27th

Needed some time to pick wisely this last week's tops, cause there was much to choose from! Of course you heard that ...And Oceans album and if you haven't and you're into symphonic BM then you should, but in addition here are some other releases that may hit that sweet spot. Remember these lists are all about Death, Doom and Black Metal mainly, with space for Stoner, Dark Jazz, and whatever I feel like. You won't find any of the -core subgenres here! Sorry!
Into The Void

Country: Chile
Genre: Thrash Metal
Label: Dying Victims

Modern thrash going on strong today.
The Fires of Heaven

Country: US
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Armageddon

Abrasive punkthrone with some slow doom leanings. The speedy, shorter tracks ala Hellhammer is where this is at.
3Dark Sarah
Attack Of Orym

Country: Finland
Genre: Symphonic Metal
Label: Riena

Well, they are not Nightwish, but they do have something that may keep you coming back. Strictly for fans of this particular genre.
4Lumen Ad Mortem
Upon The Edge Of Darkness

Country: Australia
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Bitterloss

Solid blend of second wave Norwegian BM with atmoblack; sweet balance of brutality and melody.

Country: Switzerland
Genre: Dissodeath
Label: Avantgarde

Most of you know this one already but pretty strong dissodeath from this new Swiss band.
6Grief Symposium
...In the Absence of Light

Country: England
Genre: Death Doom
Label: Church Road

Heavy, stark, gritty death doom.
Kronieken Uit de Nevel

Country: Netherlands
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Void Wanderer

Correction: This is nothing like Abigor, but more in line with 2nd wave Norwegian BM, Dissection and all that crew. A bit dense but the use of synths and a few tricks makie for an interesting jam.
8Dust Prophet
One Last look Upon The Sky

Country: England
Genre: Stoner / Doom / Psychedelic
Label: Self Released

As you may guess, this is just some good ol' dune surfing soundtrack, but it's more than decent.
Tower of the Severed Serpent

Country: Denmark
Genre: Sludge / Doom
Label: Self Released

Really sticks to the tags. Sludgy and doomy, with some gnarly growls for extra flavor.
10Signo Rojo
There Was A Hole Here

Country: Sweden
Genre: Sludge
Label: Majestic Mountain

Correction: Bandcamp tags are never to be trusted. This is just stoner & sludge. Seems it's their second album? Not sure. It's... not a blast, but it's ok I guess.
