AMERICAN WRECKING COMPANY – EVERYTHING AND NOTHING

I bet you thought the days of numetal bands were over didn't you? Well my friend you'd be wrong and American Wrecking Company has the proof in hand. Bringing to mind the essence of bands like Fear Factory, American Head Charge and Flaw, American Wrecking Company isn't...

ICE WAR – ICE WAR

So Jo Capitalicide's new solo project Ice War just slipped the internet a sneak peak at the upcoming self-titled album with "Battle Zone", the full self titled album though takes it to the next level. If you're looking for some 70's meets 80's style punk/rock/metal...

FUNERALGLADE-MAY THE FUNERAL BEGIN

While there's much to be said of age bringing wisdom and experience with more of it, the fiery nature of youth is at times just as undeniably valuable and potentially even more fierce. Funeralglade is an example of the latter end of that spectrum, while none of it's...

DIMMAN – GUIDE MY FURY

August 25th sees the debut EP from Finnish melo-death metal machine DIMMAN, and it's a pretty solid example of trimming the fat for that quality beef. The quartet of original tracks here are a bit of a teaser but a somewhat filling one, like when your appetizer is...

NEMECIC – DEATHCANTATION

NEMECIC - THE DEATHCANTATION (Inverse Records) Out of Finland comes Nemecic, a five- piece juggernaut in training! I tried to find out more about them but there is surprisingly little on their Facebook - get to work on that guys! That said, there isn't much that can...

INFECTED RAIN – 86

INFECTED RAIN - 86 I've been following this band for the better part of a decade, and, while nu metal hasn't really been a word that's passed around with affection these days, we all still love Coal Chamber and Slipknot, right? Ok let's move on, then. Infected Rain...

DZÖ NGA – THE SACHEM’S TALE

Folk black metal band Dzö-Nga recently released their newest album The Sachem's Tale on July 17th, courtesy of Avantgarde Music. Based on Algonquin folklore, this album depicts a trip up the Himalayan mountains in an otherworldly manner. This album caught my attention...

DHARA – DHARA

dhärä is a brand spanking new progressive rock band hailing from New York in a similar vein to bands like Animals As Leaders or Polyphonia. Foregoing a vocalist, they rely on their musicianship to speak for itself.  And son-of-a-bitch does it speak for itself!...

PORTRAIT – BURN THE WORLD

Lying somewhere between Iron Maiden and In Flames there is Portrait and with their new release Burn the World they show while similar to other power metal bands, they stand aside on their own 2 feet with head's held high. Crisp slashing guitars, soaring vocals and...

BYZANTINE – THE CICADA TREE

CANYON OF SKULL – THE DESERT WINTER

Austin, TX based instrumental doom metal duo Canyon of Skull will be releasing their sophomore album, The Desert Winter on August 19th. Let me start off by just saying this album is not for the faint of heart. "The Desert Winter" is a relentless, cold, heavy track...

CRIMFAL – AMAIN

There are two types of epic death metal bands, pure ragers with sick musicianship and theatrical bands (also usually with sick musicianship) that blend nontraditional influences in their music (be that a pirate theme, sci-fi fantasy themed albums, celtic/folk...

DETHRONE THE SOVEREIGN – HARBINGERS OF PESTILENCE

Progressive metal band Dethrone the Sovereign released their debut album, Harbingers of Pestilence, on July 27th. If I could describe this release shortly, I’d say Dethrone the Sovereign is Born of Osiris’ cooler older brother. Easily compared, but yet oh so...

HORRIFIC – YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE

Old school Heavy Metal? Punk? Thrash? Maybe a little Death Metal? If you answered yes to any of the above, then the answer is here, and you have it all in the re-release of YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE. Coming back with Slasher Dave’s only full-length release once again, it’s...

TYRANNOSORCERESS – SHATTERING LIGHTS CREATION

Black metal from the ground up is Texas grown Tyrannosorceress with their concise new entry to the world of ritualistic black metal. Shattering Lights Creation is a bold, stream lined, beast of an album filled with some insane bass work, great guitar play, and a...

SAMADHI SITARAM – KALIYUGA BABALON

Russian conceptual metal band Samadhi Sitaram recently released their newest full length album Kaliyuga Babalon courtesy of Sliptrick Records. This band definitely falls under conceptual with their music, but it's done in a pretty cool way. A mix of somewhat nu-metal...

PLANET EATER – BLACKNESS FROM THE STARS

Canadian based metal band Planet Eater recently released their newest full length album Blackness From The Stars, on August 4th, and I could tell from the first 15 seconds, this was gonna be a good one. The first thing I have to commend these guys on is their unique...

FONTAINE – VOLUME ONE

FONTAINE is an upcoming act fresh out of Sheffield, England, ready to mark their own unique and charmingly odd stamp on the music world.  A slick and stylish blend of influences crafting a style fans of artists like Beck, Bjork, Depeche Mode, etc. will love at first...

HEXENKLAD – SPIRIT OF THE STONE

Hexenklad is a bizarre blend of folk and black metal that just works somehow, like if a Druid and a Paladin did the fusion dance, this band would be their theme music. Don't get it twisted - Celtic metal is very much a thing I'm aware of but this is in its own...

ALL OUT WAR – GIVE US EXTINCTION

Coming August 11th, All Out War drops their 6th album Give Us Extinction - another tome to add to their growing library of NYC hardcore based works. On top of their 11 new original tracks, they've also included a shout out to fellow hardcore heavyweights Nausea with a...

PRAISE THE FLAME – MANIFEST REBELLION

Manifest Rebellion is a fresh take on the black metal scene of yesteryear. While it has plenty of fresh elements to it,  there's no denying the influence of old school greats like Death, Kreator or Venom. It's a bit of a fresh drink of water in the fact that it's...
