Fifth Angel Time Will Tell
For quite a while, I delayed the pleasure of listening to Fifth Angel's sophomore album, and I have only the band's namesake album to blame. Fifth Angel had such a humongous impact on me, that it literally "forbade" me to move on to this one. The reason was simple; released in the mid-'80s, Fifth Angel was/is/will always be a heavy/power metal behemoth, unlike Time Will Tell, whose songs were "adulterated" with the glam/hard n' heavy rock spree that prevailed in the late '80s. Be that as it may, the album still kicks ass, but distance from the debut should be taken first, in order to enjoy it.
Suffering Quota Suffering Quota
Suffering Quota is a three-way split between punk, hardcore, and grind, whereas the sound work brings the
sludge on the table. Anything but a humble start for this Dutch outfit. Stream:
Hatesphere Reduced To Flesh
Reduced To Flesh maps Hatesphere fighting the good fight with everything they got, as far as their style goes. It isn't the early '00s anymore though, therefore the album feels kind of dated from a point further, but it remains a good stretch for fans of Swedish melodic death/thrash.
Wooden Shjips V
With their previous album, Wooden Shjips consciously engaged themselves in a weighted return to the bare bones minimalism that characterized their albums prior to West, albeit that album was not a diversity behemoth in the first place. However, upon first listens of V, its predecessor does feel like one, as Wooden Shjips appear vehemently committed in shedding the cluster of elements that - in their opinion - would render their music bloated. Perhaps for the first time, that mindset seems to take its toll on the album's appeal, because at first there's this strong impression it was made on the fly, and only after a considera

ATKA Untitled Album 1
Awesome album, its undisputed demeanor mashes together a handful of genres: grind, hardcore, black metal, noise rock and progressive metal; The level of musicianship per each player here is impeccable, and although the speed of execution is ridiculous, the album is amenable to repeated listening sessions. Grindcore/mathcore kids don't let this slip through the cracks! Stream:
Yellow Devil Sauce Zulu
Hellenes alt rockers Yellow Devil Sauce had made quite an impact within their homeland with their previous album (for a representative taste, be sure to check the video for hit single "Fraud"), so it's no surprise that the follow-up Zulu picks up the baton in quite a competent way. Band knows '90s alt rock inside out, and that's readily echoed through the more dynamic cuts in the first half of the album. Some songs become a bit sludgier and more morose, whereas it can be said that they might need more time to sink in. Regardless of styles and moods, the trait that stands out is the vocalist whose breathing is a superb fit to the musi
