cover_1496409099658930

Slow Death is a four piece band from the United States. Their debut album ”Hate Filled World” was released in June through Corpse Flower Records. Recorded back in August of 2016 at Dead Air Studios, this album includes eight songs. So let us waste no more time. Let’s press play. First song is called ”Daggers of Hate”. When i listened to this song for the first time i was like ”o.k gentlemen you now have my full attention”. This is a cool song no doubt. Nasty hardcore punk mixed with  noise rock. And i can tell you that the rest of the album’s songs didn’t let me down at all. I’m talking about songs like ”Suicide Man”. This is one of my favourite songs from this album. You’ll even find some blastbeasts in this song. I also liked ”Midnight Black” a lot. Put this song in your current playlist. Put ”Blade Runs Red” as well. Last but not least we find ”Three On A Meathook”. Lyrically the band gets a lot of inspiration from old horror movies, something that will become clear to you if you check out the titles and of course the lyrics of their songs. But that makes the album sound even darker and in my opinion heavier. Overall i’d like to say that i enjoyed this album. And, yes, i would definitely like to recommend it.

Geist is a five piece band from the U.K. Their new album ”Disrepair” will be released on the 22nd of of September through Wooaaargh Records. Recorded by Jason Frye at Century Audio and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Studios, this album includes six tracks. Geist’s music is a mixture of metal, hardcore punk and crust. The aforementioned are key ingredients to create something special. Inspired by bands like Converge, Trap Them and Cursed, Geist have managed to present us an album of heavy and uncompromising music. The album starts greatly with ”Painkillers”. This is good ol’ hardcore we’ re talking about and i think hardcore fans are gonna love it. Same goes for ”Dear World”. ”Services Rendered” is my favourite track from ”Disrepair”. I really dig this one and i urge all of you to give it a listen. To be honest i liked all of the album’s tracks. This is edgy, metallic hardcore and the truth is we love this kind of stuff here. So the question is what do i think about this album by Geist? Well, i loved it, i’m definitelly down with it, therefore i would like to recommend it. As it has already been mentioned, the album goes out on September 22. In the meantime check out this link.

Converge – I Can Tell You About Pain

I can tell you that Converge rules. I’ve been waiting for some time now for a new Converge release. Finally that time has come. Their new ep ”I Can Tell You About Pain”, which was released on the 25th of July, includes two songs. Yes people, only two new songs. Excitement took over me when i caught wind of those teasers. Nevertheless i kept asking myself ” Why only two songs?”. Anyway, the only thing that i had to do was just listen to these songs. Thus i did. First song is called ”I Can Tell You About Pain” and it is another great song by Converge. I simply can get enough of this song. Second song is called ”Eve”. This one is beyond great. There are not enough words to describe how awesome this song is. If you haven’t done already then you should definitely check out this one because this is Converge at their best. At least that’s what i think. I don’t know how they do it but they’ve done again. And this is only two songs we’ re talking about. Here’s a link where you can have a taste.

Doperider – Demo

a1107675300_10

Doperider is a three piece, doom metal band from New Jersey. Their demo, which was written and recorded by the band itself, was released back in 2015. Two tracks are included in this demo. First track is called ”Drugged Up Demonoid” and it is trully an awesome track. It is a beast of a song. In my opinion it is composed of three parts. And the truth is that each part kills. Second song is called ”Fractal Resin”. I loved this song as well. It is of course heavy as hell and a bit trippy at the same time. What i like about this band is that they took the best out of three styles, namely doom, sludge and stoner metal and they created this demo of theirs that can’t go unnoticed. Personally i liked this demo a lot therefore i would like to recommend it. I would also love to listen to a full length album from this band. Here’s a link where you can have a first taste of Doperider.

Bison is a four piece band from Canada. Their new, full legth album ”You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient” which was released in Europe on the 23rd of June, will be released in North America on the 7th of July. That’s a rather odd album title, don’t you think? I simply didn’t get it. Let’s see though what we’ve got here. Seven tracks are included in this album. Back in May the band had shared one of the album’s tracks, namely ”Tantrum”. That was a cool track no doubt. But of course all of the album’s tracks are seriously heavy. It begins with ”Until the earth is empty”. This song sets the tune. In my opinion it is beyond good and i’m sure that the fans are gonna love it. ”Anti War” is the album’s second track. I think this track stands out for its nice riffs and concrete basslines. ”Drunkard” is a song that is filled with immense groove. You should definitely check out this one. Moving on we find we find ”Kenopsia”. First of all i’ll admit i loved this song’s intro. Neverthless the rest of the song didn’t let me down at all. ”Tantrum” is one of my favourite tracks from Bison’s new album. Same goes for ”Raiigin”. Heavy like a sledgehammer, this song needs to be played loud. Last but not least we find ”The water becomes fire”. This is more of an atmospheric song and an excellent outro for this album. Overall these seven tracks form an album that definitely deserves your attention. In my opinion the band surely delivered. And i have to say i couldn’t find a mediocre moment here. I personally enjoyed this album thus i’d like to recommend it.

Khmer – Larga Sombra

Khmer is a four piece band from Madrid, Spain. Their first full length album ”Larga Sombra” will see release on the 11th of August. Eight tracks will be included in this release. The band’s music is a more than excting blend of hardcore, crust punk and black metal. The first thing that made a huge impression on me is the album’s clean production. ”Larga Sombra” to me sounds immensely heavy and  i also dare to say imposing. Forgive me for i don’t speak any spanish. It begins with ”Larga Sombra”. It is a truly awesome song and one of my favourites from this album. ”Perdiste El Filo” is the album’s second song and so far all i can say is that i’m liking what i’m listening to. ”Corriendo Tras El Fuego” works like a bridge that takes us to the other parts of this album. ”El Ardor De La Crueldad” is one of my favourite songs from ”Larga Sombra”. Here you’ll find some really nice riffs. ”A Este Lado De La Luna” is cold as life. Hands down it’s a beast of a song. ”Soledad” stands out for its pitch dark atmosphere and really nice black metal riffs. Nevertheless ”Para Ver El Mundo Arder” was like a big slap in the face. I didn’t expect to find an Amenra-type song there but there’s no doubt in my mind that this is an excellent song and a great outro for this record. Khmer’s first full length album is one of the best albums i’ve listened to in months. It sounds fresh and inspired. In my opinion they have raised the bar really high on themselves. From us it’s a 9 out of 10. The album comes out in August. Here’s a link where you can have a first taste.

Post Pulse is a four piece, death metal band from Helsinki, Finland. Their debut album ”Halls of The Damned’ was released on May 26 through Inverse records. Nine tracks are included in this release. The band’s music combines death metal and groove metal. These guys here do not attempt to reinvent the wheel but through this album they deliver nine good written songs filled with nice riffs and cool death metal growls. Brutal yet melodic, this album will give you nine good reasons to bang your head really hard. I singled out many nice songs like ”When The Snakes Are Dead”, ”Final Goodbye” and ”Halls Of The Damned”. To be honest with you though the song i liked the most is ”Let It Burn”. Pay extra attention to this song. Especially if you’re an At The Gates fan. Overall i’d like to say that i enjoyed this album thus i’d like to recommend it. Post Pulse’s debut album needs to be heard loud. Here’s a link where you can also listen to ”Halls of The Damned”.
