Here are our most anticipated releases of the week!
Some emotional and cohesive instrumental post metal from Sweden. There is a dark backstory here, but the music works whether or not you dive into it.
Death metal albums with the year in their title are very hit or miss. If the year is in roman numerals, even more so. Luckily Ulvedharr know what they’re doing and have made some absolutely pummeling music.
Grindcore that doesn’t take its aesthetics seriously, but cuts out the jokes when it comes to riffs. Apparently this band’s been around forever and I have a massive discography to dive into now.
Dark and swirling pagan metal from a young band. For a debut release this is remarkable.
Some people think that symphonic metal can be too cheesy, and that symphonic black metal or symphonic death metal takes away from what makes those genres great. Those people are cowards. For the “more is more” approach, check out Atavistia.
Nasty tech death played in a nasty tech death style. I have a feeling that I will be returning to this frequently throughout the year.
