favorite bands
Malady (FIN) Malady
In a nutshell, Malady's namesake debut lies among the best prog Finland or any other country has yielded in recent years, an underrated effort that's shadowed by criminally overrated outfits and works of similar ilk. Atmospheric, instantaneously drone-y (i.e. the break in "Unessakavelija" at the 4.00 mark or the ethereal vocals at the beginning and the end of "Aarnivalkea"), with carefully dispatched outbursts, Malady is an enticing journey, courtesy of a band that knows its craft from the get go. Favorite tracks: Kantaa taakan maa, Unessakavelija, Aarnivalkea. Stream:
No Return The Curse Within
The sense of derivativeness would be greatly mitigated, if the rhythm guitars received the same attention, production-wise, as their (shredding) lead counterparts. What's more, the drums, are louder than everything else, save for the vocals.
Judas Priest Firepower
Listening to stuff released by bands clustered as "The Great Old Ones" is a bittersweet and cynical affair, but rest assured that cynicism will fly out the window when your own ears will tell you that Firepower is pure classic metal sweetness. Favorite songs: Traitors Gate, Evil Never Dies, No Surrender.
The Sonic Dawn Into the Long Night
While most of the vintage/psychedelic/progressive rock revivalists are too focused in faithfully reenacting the genre's legacy, every once in a while outfits of the ilk of these Danes emerge, which push their craft further, while preserving the tradition. Favorite track: L'Espion. Stream: https://thesonicdawn.bandcamp.com/album/into-the-long-night
The Shadow Lizzards The Shadow Lizzards
On their debut album, The power trio that comprises Germany's The Shadow Lizzards, delivers a slab of blues/funk rock that hedges its lack of originality, with a surplus of balls and soul. Favorite track: Go Down. Stream: https://theshadowlizzards.bandcamp.com/
Dead Inception Barbaric Excisions
This release is clearly missing the point that even brutal death metal needs to be pragmatically produced, in order to be appreciated; the aforementioned prerequisite condition is in acute contrast to what applies here. You have been warned! Stream: https://deadinception.bandcamp.com/album/barbaric-excisions
Vojd The Outer Ocean
Thin Lizzy/vintage Judas Priest/NWOBHM worship not dead, you all hear?

  • Snowdog808 Thank you very much for the link! I'll be sure to refer to this source when adding a duplicate named band from some country that isn't very known for its music culture.

  • Snowdog808 Understood! Thank you very much for accepting my request. I also added a band from Costa Rica here this year, but the next time I add one, would the right abreviation be (CR), or something entirely different? Thank you very much.

  • Snowdog808 Hi Voivod. I am so sorry to report this, but I added the Swedish band Candle to the site, assuming no one had before. Their album, band picture, recommended artists are on my version of the page, but would you still be willing to one of those same band entries? Thank you very much.
