|10 Bands/Albums with Under 20 Ratings You Must Hear|
I think it goes without saying that some great works of music are sometimes overlooked in the rrrrrstorm anticipated releases and other circumstances. Here are just a few gems with less than 20 rrrrrrating that need more recognition.
Chapter I: Delirium
Finnish Funeral Doom with a crushing and extremely depressive sound, even when
compared to other funeral doom albums
Last City Zero
Industrial / Noise supergroup including Scott Kelly of Neurosis and Mike IX Williams of
Eyehategod. These guys create an abrasive and bleak atmosphere paired up with
some thoughtful lyricism
|3||Horn of The Rhino|
Sludge / Doom Metal band with aggressive riffs and relentlessly heavy
instrumentation. The group's vocalist keeps things interesting by sometimes using clean
vocals similar to those seen on grudge bands, more specifically Soundgarden. Think of
these guys as High on Fire at half speed.
Phenomenal Black Metal project that produces a distinct and layered atmosphere by
alternating between an aurally vast style of black metal and immersive folk tinged ambient
French electronic artist that creates music in a style that is heavy on synths and is a
nostalgic throwback to the 80's. You may have heard some of his work on the game
Blackened Death Metal band that I haven't stopped talking about for the last 2 or 3
months. I guess this is cutting the term "overlooked" a bit close, but this is a must hear
for any death metal fan out there. Dark atmosphere and insane riffs await.
An Extraconscious Lucidity
Space themed Atmospheric Black Metal project. Combines both ambient and traditional
black metal elements. A thank you to Amphoteric for introducing me to this band
The Lords Of Hypocrisy
Traditional Heavy/ Doom Metal that in my opinion demonstrates how to execute so called "Sabbath Worship" right. A perfect mix of
both traditional and intuitive songwriting, not to mention the district vocals.
Band that plays metal renditions of themes and tunes from games of the Metroid
Agents of Power
Traditional / Heavy Metal band that riffs hard even while playing in a very familiar style of heavy metal that we all are used to or
have heard before.
