Telumehtar The Well
The shortest way to reference this album is to recall the sound of Ulver in Nattens Madrigal; Telumehtar's debut album can be easily filed under the "raw black metal" label, however there are some traits that set this one man affair relatively apart. The rhythm section is blast beating all the time, however it is skilled in a way that's found in tech metal outfits only; the guitars have this bass-like texture while they distance themselves from the traditional tremolo picking, while along with the vocals, they grant the whole recording a distinct punk coat of paint. The above said, it is difficult to pick one or more songs from the l
Warrior Soul Rock 'N' Roll Disease
Fronting a band that does nothing but the rock n' roll basics throughout the album, Korey Klarke does his best behind the mic, nevertheless he's all but a shadow of his '90s disrupting rock persona. Stream:
Darkthrone Old Star
Old Star is nothing but Darkthrone delaying the supernova that will turn them to a supermassive black hole.
Idle Hands (USA-OR) Mana
Taking advantage of the thrust that the debut EP rightfully granted them, the Oregonians venture into their first full-length release. While Mana picks up the baton with a confident grip, it fails to fully deliver on the EP's pledge in terms of freshness and augmented songwriting diversity; vocal melodies in particular rarely stray from a predicated norm, while the production is slightly inferior with respect to the EP. Still, it's a solid gothic/heavy metal album up the alley of In Solitude and the like, with good replay value. Stream:
The Sonic Dawn Eclipse
In more ways than one, Eclipse is reminiscent of Graveyard's Lights Out; album artwork and titles are up the same alley, the back catalogue permutation is the same; and yet, their different music styles, can lend an explanation as to why the Danes fell rather short on the dismal premise of their third album, clearly stated in its liner notes. Unlike the Swedes, whose '70s heavy rock could/was be/fully adapted to the sombre concept of Lights Out, the '60s rock of the Danes in Eclipse remains too happy-go-lucky by design, to properly shroud the album's alleged gloom. Moreover, the album's arrangements are now
Korgull the Exterminator The Black Legions March Over The Killing Fields
Rotten, lo-fi, crude black/thrash in the vein of early Sodom/Kreator/Voivod. Stream:
The Cure Seventeen Seconds
Basically what Tom93M eloquently said, it takes a while for the minimalism to sink in and reach its full avail. The variations from track to track are subtle and perceivable only when the volume is high enough, still it's The Cure's first solid dent to the style that would be refined to perfection in Faith. A perfect soundtrack for a cloudy, lazy, sullen day. Favorite track: Play for Today.
