Busy week ‘round these parts last week. Hopefully we can keep that momentum, but if you missed anything do catch up. Moving on to the reason you’re here…new releases and we’ve got a ton for this week that kicks off with a trio of excellent death metal from Undeath, Sentient Horror, and Corpsessed, a wickedly good heavy metal outing from Skull Fist, and a long list of other releases that are equally worthy of your time. Feel free to let us know what we missed and if your band or label wants to be included here, get in touch via our info found on this site. We’d love to hear from you.Continue reading
Initial Descent: November 24 – 30, 2019
Best of lists are flying out like gangbusters and we’ve still got so much good stuff coming out on a weekly basis that WILL be list busters. You doubt this statement yet haven’t looked below to see what’s in store; do that.
Sentient Horror makes the best American Swedeath ever, and with their latest they do that and so much more; it’s like a geographical map of the best death metal wrapped up in one album by some talented musicians – scrumptious. For their sophomore effort, Teeth ratchet up the grind aspect of their death metal and knocks it clear out of the park, The Wraith offer up a debut that’s gotten some serious mileage here at 9C for its combination of gothy deathrock and post-punk, and the band with the most umlauts ever, Öxxö Xööx, return with another epic movement of avantgarde, experimental doom that’s a vehicle for its mastermind’s dreams – don’t be curious here, just get it. In closing, I said there would be list busters and now it’s up to you to find them…Enjoy.
