May Metal - Best of the Unreviewed

Roughly ranked but pretty scattershot genres and personal favs like #3. Kostnateni is a standout worth multiple listens. Shoutout to the satellite of metal youtube/site and esp grizzlybutts work keeping me abreast of releases and disparate info

Conceptually interesting mix of elongated Turkish melodies, subtle use of digital autotuning to force rigid scales counterposed with fretless microtonal strings. is experimental bm that remains jaunty and rollicking in a much different psychic terrain than the hard dissonance drivers today.

FFO: Serpent Column, Esoctrilihum
Bewitchment Of The Dark Ages

Razor wire sharp trebly death cuts to the bone. muscly prime KC strips
FFO: Deicide, Vader, Hate Eternal
FFO: you know who you are
3Loose Sutures
Sado Sex for Dummies

smokey sexy sultra-fuzz 70s vibe and stoner stomp. so groovy it belongs in an Oldsmobile with a chainsaw in the back.
killer guest spot ft Nick Oliveri on vox for 'A Friend of Mine's' alcohol soaked Stooges rocker. whole B side is more up beat tonally
FFO: church of misery, uncle acid, electric lizard wizard, Oh Sees
4Mournful Congregation
The Exuviae of Gods - Part II

wonderful funeral doom diptych, maybe GiaNXGX will pick up from his pt1 review?

FFO: Ahab, Thergothon, Evoken
Covenants of Salt

“One gate to hell is in the desert. Another one in the oceans”.
Continuing 2020's 'Pillars of Salt' pilgrammage, this epic 18 minute ventures an ominous double left turn from post-metal orthodox detoured throug post-punk into delicate but dense mysticism cleanly croaked over theologic passages close to waves of prog psychedlia washing through every few minutes, swelling sonically until high tide breaks. Worth pairing with it's predecssor

FFO: Amenra, Cult of Luna
Black Flame Eternal

black riffs gothically stitched together with attitude

FFO: Tribulation, Nite, Slaegt
7Sporae Autem Yuggoth
...However It Still Moves

Doomed souls rise from their tombs deliriously vomited from their sepulchers shamble into a crisp Chile night air gilded with dark celestial piano and synth singing of dread and death
FFO: Death/Doom, Skepticism
Black Royal Spiritism - I - O Sino da Ig

ex-Mayhem, Aura Noir, Vltimas and indeed Abzu guitarist, Blasphemer, cracks his signature dissonant whips at savage tireless hellhounds to chart surreal course over brutal terrain
Age of Darkness

Started by blending old school British and Swedish death metal of the late 80’s/early 90’s with equally shared crust punk/d-beat inspiration. 15 years later they've refined their own sound that should be both recognizable and intriguing to fans or melodeath with a harder edge ala Bolt Thrower
FFO: Bolt Thrower

Doestoevsky's inferno. Russian debut raw If you're keen on cacophonous early black metal, bestial black/death metal in seven compositions over 44m. Bright future
FFO: Katharsis
In Occulus Abyss

FFO: Schizo progressive/dissonant black metal bm, DSO, Code, Ved Buens Ende
Bathed in Light

cavernous crystals shimmer above a receding erosion of sludge towards the source of a bellowing horror
FFO: Ahab, Loss
Forfedrenes Taarer

accomplished tuneful debut for pagan black metal of the oaken norwegian variety
FFO: Kampfar, Windir, Taake
Clouds of Confusion

1994 'Immense Intense Suspense' Dutch death prog legends are back again with a bit more commercial amount of symphonic melodicism than you might expect it deed doth riff in a nice triangulation when capped by rhythmically adept vocals
FFO: Dark Millennium, Nocturnus, Carbonized
All Heads Are Gonna Roll

faultless meat and potatoes death metal. letter rip
FFO: Vader, Bloodbath,

mean to be top 5. slipped through my references. top tier Wagnerite maximalist avant-classical bm
FFO: Blut Aus Nord, Aquilus
Deformity Adrift

Meshuggah bros get in here (also intended much higher)
