Our favorite albums of the month April:
Very fortunate to have reviewed this one. Cavernous and intense yet dynamic and filled to the brim with riffs. Haunting vocals and fantastic drum work cap off this great death metal record that still not enough people are talking about. My runner up is of course Sentient Horror, which you should also definitely check out.
Tranzat can be a little much at times, but their jazzy prog metal approach creates some damn good songs.
A proper comeback after a slighty disappointing album for Skull Fist. Energetic, genuine and ready to set everything ablaze, this album has had a difficult genesis but now that is has seen the light it marks the return of one of the most important heavy metal band nowadays.
Tides is the impressive debut record of Dutch atmospheric black metal duo Freja. The album is well-composed, has captivating soundscapes, and a lot of variety, especially in the vocals.
Well now that The Dillinger Escape Plan, and very recently Every Time I Die, no longer exist, what’s a fan to do? Well, there’s a perhaps underappreciated band (at least compared to the two) that just released a new record, and let me tell you, it does all that the aforementioned do and does it just as well.
Meshuggah’s Immutable is a well-oiled machine that rips its way through the ear canal and lacerates the cranium. There’s no mystery to the band’s heavy-yet-groovy formula, but I just can’t get enough of it.
“The demo was better.”
