Hate Force One - Waves Of Destruction

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Though HATE FORCE ONE origin from Germany, they do on occasion sound like they could have been a part of the Florida Death Metal scene in the early 90’s, as they (to some extent) remind me of bands as DEICIDE, MALEVOLENT CREATION and such. There’s something deviating from this statement though... The songs “Waves Of Destruction” and “Death Roll” sure follow that path, but then something else happens and this can be attributed to fact that this is HATE FORCE ONE’s debut album, so their style has not been yet solidified...

Goatess - Goatess

If you know your way around Doom Metal then it is highly unlikely to not have already seen the name GOATESS lurking in the underground. Yeah, the underground is still the best way to discover new bands and get blown away because this is a period of time when everything runs on emotion fueled by the will to make music and not money. Ok, this is not essay about how bands evolve as success is knocking on their door, but about the self-titled album by Sweden’s GOATESS who are definitely not new kids on the block.

Chthonic - Bú-Tik

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It is common knowledge that the Metal scene is being constantly fed with new bands coming for a specific group of countries that we have learn to trust. And I am talking about central Europe and some handpicked US states. In fact, this is a very interesting subject to analyze and understand the reason for this effect. So, whenever a band comes from a country that does not belong to the aforementioned category is great news for me because in most of the cases this is something really special / good. Well, CHTHONIC is not a young band but still has not received the recognition deserved for releasing very good music for more than 15 years. So, their seventh creation entitled “Bú-Tik” is a perfect reason for anyone who has no clue about this impressive Metal band from Taiwan.

One split with UK’s PAGAN ALTAR, two EPs and a full length later, Madison, WI’s high priestess of Doom, Jessica Bowen (aka Jex Thoth), is back in discography, daring this time to deal with her Roky Erickson than the BLACK SABBATH-esque side, raising the expectations for a super comeback (surely, this is the comeback of the year for her die-hard fans). Showing an unconditional love for the European market, mainly performing rituals across the countries of the Old Continent, JEX THOTH proudly present to the psychedelic Doom Metal world their sophomore release, entitled “Blood Moon Rise” and please, allow me to comment “what a fitting title that is”!
