Here are our most anticipated releases of the week!
Rick is looking forward to:
Solid melodic death metal from Greece; the country alone is more than enough to get me interested in something, as lots of good metal is coming from there these days.
From the band name to the album cover, everything here screams NWOTHM – and the music, from what I’ve heard, delivers. This is just how I like it. As a bonus, Olof Wikstrand from Enforcer is credited under engineering: sounds like quality is assured.
Yes, melodic death metal from Greece again. As I said, this information is often enough for me. But in this case I’ve been loving the singles since I’ve heard them too.
In the singles that I’ve heard there’s a hint of AOR inside the classic heavy metal that makes it sound a bit light-hearted and enjoyable, simply perfect for when you’re on holiday in the summer. Curious to hear the full thing now!
Does anyone here remember Brocas Helm? As soon as I clicked play on a single from this band, it was the first thing that popped in my mind. Sure, there’s some Candlemass influence here and there too… heavy and doom-ish, the perfect mix.
Nathan is looking forward to:
I am always appreciative of some good blackened death. This is a shorter release that left me looking out for the band’s next impact.
The Cavalera brothers obviously had a fun time re-recording Bestial Devastation and Morbid Remains from their early Sepultura days, and the result is some wild and aggressive times. Are these better than the originals? I don’t really care, too busy headbanging.
Dark and claustrophobic death metal. If you don’t like deathcore or industrial, this one may not be for your, but if you can handle those genres then this is a must listen.
