2022 - 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 2022 releases. Supplemental lists will follow, if need be. Edit: Supplementary list: https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=308183&listid=202149
1Morgue Supplier

4.0 - grindcore from Chicago, Illinois.

To whom it should concern, you are vehemently prompted to drop whatever you are currently listening to and submerge yourself into this abomination of filth, groove, dissonance and grinding insanity. Stream: http://morguesupplierband.bandcamp.com/
2Mahpiya Luta

4.0 - black metal from the States.

How has this album slipped through the cracks, whereas its brethren from Blackbraid hasn't? I can only think of two reasons; this is too lofi to be relatively prevalent, and (judging from the song titles of both albums) it's written and sung in the band's mother tongue. Too bad though, because under the said layers of deterrence lies a lofi black metal gem brimming with groove, adventurous structures and succinct duration that adds up to its replay value. Stream: http://mahpiyaluta.bandcamp.com/album/w-ohitike
Geddon Dangerous

4.0 - classic heavy metal from the States.

Criminally overlooked, infinitely aggressive (and tech!) and emotional, classic heavy metal from the States. Stream: http://doublegeddon.bandcamp.com/album/geddon-dangerous
Els Nous Cants de la Sibil·la

3.8 - blackened grindcore/death metal from Spain.

Blackened grindcore/death metal that rivals everything within its scope. Stream: http://osserp.bandcamp.com/album/els-nous-cants-de-la-sibil-la
The Art of a Maniac

3.8 - thrash metal from Canada.

Thrash metal has been officially pronounced dead for some time now, and yet releases such as this one, emerge every once in a while, so go figure... Favorite track: The Art of a Maniac. Stream: http://tymoband.bandcamp.com/album/the-art-of-a-maniac
6Devil's Train
Ashes and Bones

3.7 - heavy metal/hard rock of international origin.

Liapakis and Co. stand at the Hot Gates of heavy af hard rocking metal. If mid-to-late '80s Whitesnake is still a thing for you, check this out asap. Stream: http://roar-devilstrain.bandcamp.com/album/ashes-bones
7Skid Row (US)
The Gang's All Here

3.5 - hard rock/heavy metal from New Jersey.

It's not Skid Row or Slave to the Grind, but it's better than it has any right to be. I mean, if you don't spontaneously crank the volume while "World's On Fire", the album’s bookend is playing, well…
8Angel Olsen
Big Time

3.5 - country/indie folk from St. Louis, Missouri.

First contact with this gal here; Olsen is a great singer, and those country undercurrents are splendid. Stream: http://angelolsen.bandcamp.com/album/big-time
Sagan om "Dal Av Eld" Del I...

3.5 - blackened dungeon synth of unknown origin.

Blackened dungeon synth of unparalleled soothing capacity. Stream: http://ururdhagaz.bandcamp.com/album/sagan-om-dal-av-eld-del-i-herren-av-dal-av-eld
Disciples of Excremental Liturgies

3.5 - lofi black metal from Hellas.

lofi black metal is dead, long live the new lofi black metal. Stream: http://mnima.bandcamp.com/album/disciples-of-excremental-liturgie
Carpe Diem

3.4 - heavy metal from the UK.

These geezers still have it in them, as they deliver yet another proverbially great, albeit uneventful, hard rocking metal album. Favorite track: Remember the Fallen. Stream: http://musicmp3.ru/artist_saxon__album_carpe-diem.html
12Invoker (COL)
Invoking The Evil

3.4 - thrash metal from Colombia.

These Colombians know how to thrash with excellent guitars that bring in mind the tech eras of outfits such as Kreator and Heathen. Being wet behind the ears though, their influences are too apparent throughout, the sound work is a bit unbalanced, whereas vocalist and drummer have an appreciable margin for improvement. Stream: http://invoker5.bandcamp.com/
13Witch Blade

3.4 - heavy metal from Sweden.

In the album's liner notes, Witch Blade quote Angel Witch, Tokyo Blade, Judas Priest, but not Heavy Load, the proverbial Swedish proto-heavy metal outfit. Be that as it may, these Swedes are nice and comfy within their avowed niche, but the crucial factor that gives some replay value is the befitting sound work, a common trait for all Dying Victim releases. Stream: http://dyingvictimsproductions.bandcamp.com/album/witch-blade-m-nsken
