🌶️ To The Teeth: Metallica, Hammers of Misfortune, Katatonia, Celestial Season, Obituary, Motörhead & much more!
🌶️ Hammers of Misfortune (prog from the USA. FFO: Vhöl, Sigh, Slough Feg)
The term 'progressive' can be deceiving. This is exciting, super shreddy heavy prog that's more like your dad's Voivod albums than Dream Theater. This is a thrilling, very energetic new album from a few of the people behind Vhöl, Sabbath Assembly and ex-members of Vektor. I love the absolutely fantastic vocals here.
There's more: Imha Tarikat (black from Germany), Celestial Season (🌶️ doom/death from The Netherlands), Veilburner (black/death from the USA), Trhä (🌶️ atmospheric/ambient black from the USA/Mexico), an ep from Thrawsunblat (🌶️ melodic folk/black from Canada - the first The Taste of Teeth song that is now also available on Spotify!), Qrixkuor (death from the UK), Lesath (atmoblack from India), David Maxim Micic (prog from Serbia) and a collection of b-sides from Ultha (black from Germany).
There are new songs out from: Metallica (🌶️ thrash from the USA - I love this song!), Katatonia (🌶️ prog/sadboy from Sweden - I also love this song!), Motörhead (🌶️ speed/heavy from the UK - previously unreleased song, I love it), Obituary (death from the USA - it's nice), Harakiri for the Sky (post-black from Austria - ok I'll stop commenting), Delain (symphonic from The Netherlands), Sarcoptes (black from the USA), God Dethroned (blackened death from The Netherlands), Brothers of Metal (heavy/power from Sweden), Zulu (hardcore/powerviolence from the USA), E-An-Na (folk from Romania), Schavot (black from The Netherlands) and a trailer for one of my favourite black metal bands, Misþyrming (black from Iceland).
