Returning London extreme metal band, Dripback, delve deep into their record collections to pick ten death metal classics for us. See what they picked here.
An album that satisfies the needs of black, death and progressive audiences, with a clear and intellectual concept that is somehow still a joy to listen to? Dark Fortress prove their worth to Century Media as they tick all these boxes on Spectres From The Old World.
The next big name in French extreme metal should be Svart Crown, given the dazzling display of blackened death songwriting they deliver on their fifth full-length, Wolves Among The Ashes, available from Century Media.
Wolves Among the Ashes (Century Media), the latest full-length from French extreme metal outfit Svart Crown is a nuanced exercise in balancing varied and often conflicting musical styles. We had a chat with founder JB le Bail about the album, the band’s influences and what to expect.
The Thelema-inspired doom of Caronte, with Schammasch’s ritualistic blackened death, rounded off by the no-nonsense black metal assault of Enthroned: what more could any self-respecting Luciferian occultist ask for a pleasant night? Well done to District 19 for putting together a great show at Netherlands’ P60 Pop Podium.
With their eleventh studio album, Dominion, coming soon via Napalm Records, we spoke with Hammerfall vocalist Joacim Cans about the new music, changes to their outlook and creative direction, touring, and life.
Fleshgod Apocalypse rewrite the definition of extreme metal on Veleno (Nuclear Blast Records), by taking all the historical aspects of their signature orchestral death metal sound and pushing these to, well, the extreme limit.
The rising outfit, Contrarian have surged on with their third studio album, Their Worm Never Dies. In the Willowtip Records release, we see progressive elegance amidst tough as nails #deathmetal riffs.
Step “Into The Bloodbath” and check out the brand new music video from the phenomenally talented young Swedish death/thrash fivesome, Three Dead Fingers. Their debut LP, Breed of The Devil, is due soon via Bleeding Music Records.
Under the Regolith, out via Tridroid Records, may not be the most memorable record you hear this month, but it’s certainly one of the more exciting, enjoyable, and fun ones – hats off to Antiverse!
After a decade-long break, Forest of Shadows have returned with Among the Dormant Watchers via Inverse Records. Seeping with atmosphere and emotion, it’s one for fans old and new, and any doom metal connoisseurs.
Sunless Dawn’sprogressive death metal début Timeweaver, out November 16 on Prime Collective, showcases some of the most original progressive metal released this year, yet inconsistencies hold the album back from being a classic
There is so much hate in this world and such a long history of hatred. For centuries, people have ignored what makes us as human beings so similar, and have focused on the few things that make us different. What do you take with you? What do you leave behind?
