Abramis Brama Tusen År
Four years after their most recent outing, Swedes Abramis Brama re-emerge with their warm, energetic and always relevant hard n' heavy rock. If yours truly would be commissioned to summarize the main difference of Tusen r from its predecessor, he would be inclined to say that the former sounds a notch more formulaic, with no particular track(s) standing out. Still, the album is a delight to jam during leisure time.
Maverick Cold Star Dancer
While glam metal veterans re-emerge again and again so as to re-capture the magic of the late '80s, in vain for the most part, new bands like Maverick seem to break no sweat in doing so! Starting from the amazing singer, every band member brims with talent, talent that's in dire demand for blending the styles of bands such as Judas Priest, Skid Row, Queensryche and Ratt. Of course, there the inherent lack of originality as opposed to the undisputable freshness and vigor of Cold Star Dancer. But the only real downside here is that in some occasions, the blend collapses to its ingredients, due to the band going over the top. Favorite t
Stereo Nova Ουρανός
21 years after their last full-length album, Stereo Nova return with new material that would feel blatantly mainstream, if it weren't for its dark and quiet minimalism throughout. If Ουρανός were to be linked with an homologous release, that would be Ulver's Lyckantropen Themes, though Stereo Nova anno 2018 are not as elaborate and arcane as their Norwegian peers(?). For those aware of the project's '90s heyday, don't expect a rehash of the warmly naive and highly original, energetic electro-crossover; Through their multiple projects within the Greek arts scene, Stereo Nova have aged enough, so as to comfort their st
Hooded Menace Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed
After the release of Fulfill the Curse ages ago, I missed out on following Hooded Menace albums, as I unconsciously/erroneously believed that they wouldn't easily escape the primal, cavernous atmosphere of their debut, on all accounts. Little did I know, as Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed has a crushingly modern sound, while some of the arrangements (see favorite songs) are totally addictive. Needless to say, I need to listen to their other stuff. Favorite tracks: Cathedral of Labyrinthine Darkness, Charnel Reflections. Stream:
Khruangbin Con Todo El Mundo
Just for being utterly relaxing, this album deserves merit, guitars, voices and rhythm section will soothe you with no reservations, while keeping it all together. Favorite track: Como Me Quieres. Stream: https://khruangbin.bandcamp.com/album/con-todo-el-mundo-excluding-n-s-america
Angelus Apatrida Cabaret de la Guillotine
The Spaniards pick up from where Hidden Evolution concluded, only this time around, their new material sounds a tad more urgent, thanks to the short fixes of tech thrash that have infiltrated the album, but also the vocals who are have more color in them than ever before. Cabaret de la Guillotine lies easily among the best thrash metal anno 2018. Favorite tracks: Ministry of God, Downfall of the Nation.
Eldritch Cracksleep
Cracksleep does not differentiate itself much from the last 2-3 Eldritch releases, in terms of the morosely cool, easy going, and yet "going through the motions" modern/"progressive" metal hybrid that was introduced at the beginning of the '10s. Favorite tracks: Cracksleep, As The Night Crawls In.
