Scientist – 10100II00101 Scientist-10100II00101-e1448040036796

Genre: Experimental metal
Origin: Chicago, Illinois
Label: Hell Comes Home

Buy now on Bandcamp

This is a really cool release from a band that sounds like they're straight out of the Georgia sludge scene, yet aren't. Sounds A LOT like early Mastodon. On their second album of self-described "architectural metal," this band is building something pretty rad. Features members of Yakuza, Taken By the Sun, and Making Ghosts.

Shaving The Werewolf – The Pissing Link Shaving-the-Werewolf-The-Pissing-Link

Genre: Hardcore/rock
Origin: Oslo, Norway
Label: Negative Vibe

Buy now on Amazon.com

In a world where Horse The Band doesn't release music nearly enough, bands like Shaving The Werewolf fill that void. Not nearly as upbeat nor chaotic as the Horse boys, but still infused with similar electronics and some hardcore bits.

Spectral Lore – Gnosis EP6102zIiYkiL

Genre: Ambient black metal
Origin: Athens, Greese
Label: I, Voidhanger

Buy now on Amazon.com

This EP is five lengthy, beautiful and haunting tracks of black metal bliss. With five tracks clocking in at around 50 minutes, I'd hesitate to call this an EP myself, but Ayloss did, and it's his deal, so fuck me. Great riffs, great juxtapositions of instrumentation, great song writing. All in all, pretty great.
