I’m back! The playlist is absolutely filled to the brim with stuff that came out while I was away.
🌶️ Horrendous (prog death from the USA. FFO: (late) Death, Morbus Chron/Sweven, Atheist)
This band is unstoppable and this album is very close to a masterpiece. Ever since The Chills they keep surprising me with new ways to keep death metal future ready. This new one is another big step forward, with a more varied vocal approach ánd a a whole new range of musical ideas. This is what the kids would call a banger.
🌶️ Sanguine Glacialis (melodic death/black/gothic/everything from Canada)
What the hell. When this band sat down to discuss the direction the band should take, they must’ve been a) high and b) very very accomodating to each and every idea. There’s a basis of melodeath, which is marinated in a thick gothic sauce and spiced up with black metal elements, and then there are jazzy and latin-ish passages, sometimes all at the same time. Yes, it sounds like this album is going to be an unbearable hot mess. But no, this is: fucking awesome.
There’s more: Spirit Adrift (🌶️ heavy from the USA), Godthrymm (epic doom from the UK), Urfaust (black from The Netherlands), Mycorrhizae (🌶️ black from the USA), Ringworm (hardcore/thrash from the USA), Oxx (🌶️ math/punkrock from Denmark), Gonemage (experimental post-black/chiptune from the USA), John Coffey (punkrock/metalcore from The Netherlands), Dripping Decay (death from the USA), The Circle (symphonic black from Germany), Invultation (black/death from the USA), Déhà (black-ish from Belgium), Violet Cold (experimental post-black from Azerbaijan), Nott (death/doom from the USA), Stargazer (avantgarde black/death from Australia) and another week, anothe.. no wait, two new albums from Trhä (2 - atmoblack from the USA). The rest is in the playlist!
