I’m not in much of a chatty mood except to say when the world is shit, turn to music. There’s always something amazing to be listened to, discovered, and shared. Turn it fucking up.

NEW STUFF: (Click the titles to hear it)

Cancerslug – Sassy for Satan
I’ve always casually observed Cancerslug and their sleaze-ridden, horror punk/metal stylings from a far. I’ve found their discography to be a daunting one to get in to so I figured I’d start with this new one. I read it’s part one of two, part two being their final release. That being said, this is more pop punk/rock n roll with all they sleaze and depravity the band is known for, and I dig it.

Spellcaster – Night Hides the World
Catchy as fuck classic styled heavy/power metal with more emphasis on the rocking part and less on theatrics. Killer riffs, solos and melodies, this album is just some straight up, fun as fuck metal. Love it.

Anicon – Exegeses
Progressive, technical, atmospheric black metal. Fairly intense with some good moments but a little been there done that for me. Solid effort through and through.

Kill – Great Death
Nasty, dirty, furious, hateful Swedish black metal with a hint of death metal from some of the guys in Bestial Mockery. If you like black metal with no frills designed to fuck your face off, this new one is for you. Killer stuff.

Near – Own Sun
More bleak, fril-less black metal this time hailing from Italy. This is like a maelstrom of black metal. Just furious tremelo picking, shrill, shrieked vocals, with some atmospherics thrown in to keep it from going to insane. Very reminiscent of early Norwegian black metal in all it’s recklessness. Hits that spot just right.
