Necrophobic - Darkside: It's really cool to see an interesting twist on the Sunlight sound in the form of blackened old school Swedeath.

Mefisto - The Puzzle: Because Mike Åkerfeldt cited it as being his favorite album from the Swedish scene.

Necrophobic-For those who stayed satanic

A very catchy song, like all the album, with great guitars and dynamics songs.

Demigod - As I Behold I Despise

This album is simply breathtaking! Atmosphere, brutality, technicality, catchiness...it's all there, this thing is unstoppable!

Deathspell Omega - Solafide I
Si Monumentum Requires showcases a more elegant (yet still totally unsettling, esoteric, and grim) side of Deathspell Omega, seemingly.

I agree.

Hùbris (by Blut Aus Nord) from (2014) Blut Aus Nord & P.H.O.B.O.S. - Triunity.
I REALLY like their old and new work but I must listen to those albums in the middle.

Alchemist - Tide In Mind Out

Not as engulfing as Spiritech, but a cool, sophisticated album of great guitar playing, punishing vocal work and intelligent lyrics. Really interesting music.

YES! ABOUT FUCKING TIME!

From what I can make out, it sounds like they have deviated very little from what we heard in Outer Isolation. DiSanto's vocals are still ridiculous in the best way possible. YES!

Desultor - Denied

God DAMNIT this kicks ass!!!! Like a much heavier, death metal-y Control Denied? Where are more bands like this in the midst of lame and weak power metal gimmicks!?

Pentagram - The World Will Love Again

One of the most ear-catching tunes on Be Forewarned...great, massive grooves and an infectious vocal hook. These early doom bands were at their best when they wrote heavy mid-tempo crushers with catchy, rhythmic vocal lines - that was what Ozzy sounded best doing and that's what these other vocalists do best too.

Yea, I love Be Forewarned. "Petrified" is a massive riff-storm and my most favourite tune, "Wolf's Blood" is another scorcher. Basically every song is solid.

NP: Ween - Pork Roll Egg and Cheese

True successors of Zappa and Captain Beefheart.

Mortuus - Grape Of The Vine

New album!! I really liked the De contemplanda Morte; De Reverencie laboribus ac Adorationis full length from 2007, as it was a morbid grower, redolent with slower, writhing, tortured tempos dripping a suffocating atmosphere. This formula doesn't seem to have changed with this track, and I'm not complaining. Hopefully more tracks become available to sample soon.

Blood Thirsty - Slaughtering Sin

Mixing symphonics with brutal death metal sounds ineffective in theory, but this is actually amazing.

Cyphosis - "Time is an Enemy" from To North and Under

This album is some fantastic melodic death/thrash and it is crying shame no one has reviewed it on the Archives yet. If I was a little more knowledgeable and better with words I would give it a shot.

1349 - At The Gate...

I wrote this album off at first, but it's growing on me. Very drudging and atmospheric.

Alchemist - Older than the Ancients

Pretty cool mellow prog rock/metal. Not the jarring Neurosis on acid of Spiritech or Organasm but I dig it...tight, melodic music.

Uriah Heep - The Magician's Birthday

Listening to Rocka Rolla as well as some other old shit last night made me think about giving this album a go for the first time in a while. Great album. I love early Uriah Heep

Neurotech - The Elysian Symphony

This is really good. The atmosphere is turned up to maximum here.

X Japan - Art of LIfe

Within this 29 minute track there's like 7 minutes of some piano banging nonsense. It's really great.

Astral Doors - Disciples of the Dragon Lord

The new album has some energy to it and some good sounds. That's all I can say about it now. It hasn't blown me away but it isn't awful either.

Kenso - 麻酔part2

Quite possibly the most underrated prog rock band of all time. This is some really great stuff.

Trenchrot - Necronomic Warfare

The OSDM-revival isn't a competition, but Trenchrot win anyway. Fantastic, skull-crushing, Bolt-Thrower inspired goodness, with a beautiful closing outro. This is the kind of band I feel the need to endlessly recommend to people.

Steel Assassin "In Hellfire Forged"

I'm glad they re-recorded some of their old songs. I kinda wish "Cobra" was on this though.

Krisiun - Bloodshed

Finally got around to checking out this band, loving it so far, great atmosphere and some crushing percussive rhythms. Very much encouraged me to keep delving into their back catalogue

Mercyful Fate - Gypsy
Anyone else spinning DBtO in celebration of its 30th anniversary? 1:21 always gets me good. So fuckin' groovy!

Edit: Didn't see that MF-DBtO anniversary thread.

This band is quite solid!

Edguy - Two Out of Seven

This song is right, music journalism really is just bullshit. Catchy tune too.

Inquisition - Crush the Jewish Prophet

Really like how Dagon pronounces "Crush" in each chorus slightly differently - different emphasis.

The Contortionist - Language

The album is ok. They are really trying to be Deathcore Cynic. This is sort of like their deathcore equivalent to Traced in Air. I expect their four album is just gonna be spacy prog stuff.

Ketzer - To Each Saint His Candle

Fucking phenomenal black/thrash album. Every riff, note, vocal line etc are perfect. Plus is still has room for some lead induced atmosphere. Awesome :metal:

The first track of the new album. It is awesome! It sounds a little different from Darkspace III, but the atmosphere is good as always. Especially recommended on bright nights with lots of visible stars.
