Molten Chains In the Antechamber Below
Analogous to a handful of classic heavy metal bands having allowed extreme metal to infiltrate their default style, Molten Chains play this kind of atavistic, dark heavy metal, with sludgy riffs adeptly adapting to the band's shapeshifting whims song-writing-wise. Being a debut album and in view of its more-than-welcome crude/experimental sound, most of the inefficiencies of In The Antechamber Below can be more or less ignored, except for the [male] vocalist who has a large margin for improvement to fill in future releases.

Steel Panther Heavy Metal Rules
What BigHans said, unfortunately... The interesting thing about glam rock/metal was that it was eradicated overnight in the early '90s, but with Steel Panther we get to see a more gradual downhill course for the band, that commenced since the peak that is All You Can Eat...
Kayser Soze Cause We Like It & Enjoy Us
To utilize a cliche in describing this in a nutshell, this is the best garage/blues/psych rock album you haven't heard yet... Killer vocals, arrangements that touch upon the universal constants of the aforementioned genre amalgamation, and replay value, lots of it as a matter of fact... Stream:
Asagraum Potestas Magicum Diaboli
Asagraum came to the fore when on a whim, I decided to check on the projects that Trish, the drummer for Aldrahn's new band Urarv, was involved in at the time. It was a rewarding foray for Asagraum alone, because their black metal, for all its melody, death metal elements and relative hi-fi register, is firmly rooted on the genre's second wave, despite the song structures becoming noticeably repetitive towards the end of the track list. And then, there are Obscura's vocals, one of the grimmest the recent yield has put on record. Favorite track: Black Sun Prayer. Stream:
Exhorder Mourn the Southern Skies
Prepare to be blown away! Stream:
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib Bandana
If it weren't from the infinite-replay-value "Giannis" single due to its superficial reference to the Greek Freak, I wouldn't come across this album... As a gangsta hip-hop release, the album stands out due to Madlib's ingenious placement of instrumentals/samples/what have you, along with Gibbs' one-dimensional perhaps, yet always gritty delivery. And yeah, guest artists give the album extra points, while the respective tracks - Education, especially - happen to be the best of the lot. Favorite tracks: Palmolive, Giannis, Education. Stream:
Sacred Reich Awakening
Sacred Reich's come-back album sounds like what Independent should have sounded like in the first place. Stream:

  • insomniac15 Planet of Zeus know how to craft a fun, groovy, hard rock tune, but I wish they did more than that. I saw people weren't impressed with a track like 'Athens' off their previous record, which had a lounge/jazzy vibe. They are probably stuck in between trying to please the fans and doing something different.

  • insomniac15 Hello! I listened to it once and it's nice. It has some strong songs, but also some more average hard rock/stoner jams. I like the new Villagers of Ioannina City more, I think it's the best so far from the Greek stoner scene this year (from what I heard). Do you like it?
