Suffocation - Pinnacle Of Bedlam

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Whether you like to describe them as Death Metal, brutal Death, Slam or technical Death Metal, the fact is that SUFFOCATION have been one of the pioneers in the Death Metal scene with incredible releases and probably one of the best frontmen in Death Metal. “Pinnacle Of Bedlam” is the first album without the longtime drummer Mike Smith. Dave Culross is no stranger to the SUFFOCATION guys though, and it is safe to say that he knows how to handle the band’s blasting. Enough said, time to talk business.

Abysmal Grief - Feretri

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It’s not a secret that Italian psych horror Doom metallers ABYSMAL GRIEF have been flirting for years with the obscure and macabre, which are the main characteristics a listener can instantly spot in their super-scary melodies. Two years had passed since the Masters of extravagant horror had released the EP, Foetor Funereus Mortuorum, and truth is I have missed a full length album, soaked in bloody mysticism and full of soundtrack-inspired horror Doom tunes, something that these Italians know well to produce.

Weed Is Weed - Blunt Force Trauma

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

If you give it some thought and maybe search a little bit in the internet you might come to the conclusion that Stoner Rock/Metal was born after the marriage of psychedelic Rock and Doom Metal also implying lots of – mainly – weed smoking. In fact, the connection with smoking stuff to get high while enjoying music is something that does not fit my mentality because I happen to consider music as the best vehicle to get one high. Fortunately, this scene grew up and started producing some serious music/bands bringing groove and different guitar tunings to our Metal world. So, nowadays the Stoner Rock scene is flooded with young bands and to some extent the connection with the grass-smoking­ faded away. But some bands are still loyal to the roots of this scene and WEED IS WEED is definitely one of them. After all, who can ignore the musicians involved in the lineup? They have done many tour duties in this scene, so don’t you dare to consider them as new kids on the block. In fact, WEED IS WEED was formed in 2005 with a different lineup and as it seems took eight years to release its debut album, so it has to be good, right?

Hardreams - Unbroken Promises

This is the third studio album by this band from Spain. While located inside the European borders, HARDREAMS seem to be flirting more with the American sound, ranging from heavyweight AOR to melodic Hard Rock with enough rocking moments in between.
