🌶️ Fossilization (death/doom from Brazil. FFO: Spectral Voice, Krypts, Incantation)
This is my kind of death metal. Intense, menacing, dark, unpredictable, atmospheric and heavy as a planet. The two members are also in Jupiterian.
🌶️ Cryptopsy (brutal/tech death from Canada. FFO: Suffocation, Aborted, Dying Fetus)
The first album in over ten years from Cryptopsy. Chock full of technical, brutal, intense death metal. Cryptopsy pushes all edges and envelopes.
🌶️ Kvelertak (hardrock/heavy from Norway. FFO: Baroness, Red Fang, Mutoid Man)
I still kinda miss Hjelvik, but this band knows how to write a great big rock song and this is worth your time if you like, well, great big rock songs.
🌶️ Uada (melodic black/facepalms from the USA. FFO: Mgła, Auðn, Blackbraid)
I’ll be honest, I was never a fan of this band and I’m still not. But I’m warming up to this release, which seems more varied and urgent to me than what I’ve heard before.
There’s more: Dying Fetus (brutal death from the USA), Monolord (stoner/doom from Sweden), Bio-Cancer (thrash from Greece), 人間椅子 (Ningen Isu) (🌶️ prog hardrock/heavy/doom from Japan), Slomatics (sludge/doom from the UK), Jute Gyte (experimental black from the USA), Hiems (black from Italy - solo project from the Forgotten Tombs-bassist), Yohualli (black from the USA - this is the dude from Mäleficentt) and Domkraft (psych/sludge from Sweden). The rest is in the playlist!
There are new songs out from: Primordial (celtic folk/black from Ireland), Green Lung (🌶️ stoner/doom from the UK), Soul Glo (hardcore punk from the USA), Wolfheart (melodeath from Finland), Carnation (death from Belgium), Gama Bomb (🌶️ thrash from the UK), Shylmagoghnar (prog melodic black/death from The Netherlands), Autarkh (experimental industrial from The Netherlands), Wayfarer (atmoblack/folk from the USA), Left Cross (death from the USA), Laster (🌶️ experimental post-black from The Netherlands), Rebaelliun (death from Brazil), Waldgeflüster (black from Germany) covering a Panopticon song, and there’s a live track from Dool (🌶️ psych rock from The Netherlands - recorded at a show in my own city, on my own birthday and I still had to miss it damnit). The rest is in the playlist!
Non-heavy & next week
Non-heavy album of the week: The Homesick (indierock from The Netherlands)
I’m looking forward to next week because of: Baroness, Shining (SE), Alkaloid, Fabricant, Brujeria, Torpor & Carathis.
