Trinitas

Trinitas

War Anthem


Trinitas  featuring Tormentor, Vargher and Azathoth deliver a gutteral three song Black Metal beast that is sure to rip out your throat and feed you to their black abyss. Trinitas' sound is raw, brutal and straight out of some twisted pit that few will dare to venture. My only complaint is that it is only three songs. I need more. I want more! Give me more! I need more Trinitas!

Sun Of The Sleepless/Cavernous Gate 

split ep

Prophecy


This is an amazinge concept of taking two kickass Black Metal bands and combining them to make this incredible album. Sun Of The Sleepless is more of a Poetic style of Black Metal and Cavernous gate are more Atmospheric Black Metal. Both have a way of sucking you in and you kind of go in to this dream like state and then they rack your mind with nightmares that sit in your subconcious for days. I haven't been able to stop listening.

Saint Asonia

Flawed Design

Spinefarm


Adam Gontier and Mike Mushok stepping outside of their perspective bands Three Days Grace and Staind  lead this incredible band Saint Asonia and this Hard Rock album Flawed Design. For me the stand out track on this disc as Beast. Definetly stuck on my play list. From the melodic to the hard punching Rock  Saint Asonia's Flawed Design damn near flawless from start to finish.

Laura Cox

Burning Bright

Earmusic


Holy Shit this may be the coolest you've heard in a long time. The groove in this album is so deep it will leave a permanent notch in your soul. Mixing Southern with a Blues groove and Rocking so hard Laura Cox is hitting on all levels. I seriously had to remind myself to sit down and focus on writng something, cause I kept getting up rocking out. Oh my god the solo work on this album is beyond the cooles I've heard. Laura Cox may just have the biggest balls in the game!

Shores Of Mourning

Folk  Doom fans rejoice! Isenordahl have released the album that will shock your system into overload with despair and magesty. Utilizing both male and female vocals with a unique blend of haunting melody and destructive angst in their music. Their songs are both healing and despair intertwined. The journey Isenordahl will take you on is everlasting, soul searching, heart breaking and yet beautiful.

Fen

The Dead Light

Prophecy


When I first started listening to this album my forst thought was, imagine if Pink Floyd did an album with Mayhem. There is pure beauty in the darkness that Fen bring with The Dead Light. Hell the songs Dead light part one and two are materpieces. The musicainship is on another level. You just feel every note and absord every word. Fen's The Dead Light takes you to a place that you can't come back from and you may never want to.

A New Tomorrow

Universe

Frontiers


A New Tomorrow hit hard with the new album Universe. They come roaring out with I Wanna Live. Starts out with this kick ass groove and the tune just flows from there. Then that second tune A Million Stars is definetely my favorite tune. It has an incredible groove, flawless vocals. I caught myself singing this tune two days after I reviewed this album. Universe is a great album from start to finish. If you like your Metal melodic with power than A New Tomorrow's Universe is for you!

Abigail Williams

Walk Beyond The Dark

Blood Music


Abigail Williams returns with one of the coolest albums I've heard this year. Walk Beyond The Dark is pure Black Metal insanity. This is one of those albums that you go looking for in some bands  and you don't feel it. Then you hear Abigail Williams Walk Beyond The Dark and you realize this i the album you've been searching for all year. The dynamics and sheer mind fucking ruthlessness of Abigail Williams comes through in every tune. If this album doesn't shake your soul to the core, you might want to check your pulse cause you might already be dead!

Cell

Ancient Incantations Of Xarbos

Self Release


I love albums with a great intro. It sets the pace for the album and Cell do not disappoint The Rise of Gorthar sounds like a scene out of someone's nightmare. This album reaches into your body and grips your heart and gives it a shake, almost like you are having a heart attack, but you're not. You're just listening to this incredible band Cell that mixes Black Metal with touches of Doom in it. My personal favorite track is All I See Is Them, but no matter what song you are listening to, it will knock you on your ass.

Iron Kingdom

On The Hunt

Self Release


Holy Shit! Have you heard Iron Kingdom's On the Hunt? If you haven't you are missing out on one of the coolest album's of 2019. The opening track White Wolf comes screaming out of the gate like madness reborn.Iron Kingdom have a sound that easily reminds you of old school Metal with that ballsy in your face sound that has that Speed Metal flare with melodic thrown into to fuck your head up. It's almost like Mercyful Fate and Iron Maiden had a bastard love child! Iron Kingdom's On The Hunt is a top 5 album of 20191

Legendary

The Wizard and The Tower Keep

High Roller


When I first put this album on I kind of sat back and forgot I was supposed to be reviewing it. It just takes you on this journey and gets you out of your head. I love songs and albums that can tell a great story and Legendary's The Wizard And The Tower Keep does that from the opening very Celtic sounding The Bard's Tale all the way through to the epic almost 11 minute Earthwarrior. A very cool old school sound. I swear I heard splashes of early, early Iron Maiden and even some Boston. This is a great listen all the way through.

Magic Kingdom

Metalmighty

AFM


Fantasy Speed Metal band Magic Kingdom give us this epic album Metalmighty. Bringing forth songs about dragons, witches and knights. The story telling and music is on such a level that it makes you want to pick up your sword and/or battle axe and charge into battle and you are sure to win with songs like Unleash The Dragon, Fear My Fury and Rise From The Ashes playing in the background.
