Black Breath – Slaves Beyond Death 51z6lNVx93L

Genre: Death metal
Origin: Seattle, Washington
Label: Southern Lord

Buy now on

A lil' grimy, a lil' hardcore, a lil' black metal, and a lil' death metal. That's the recipe for the Pacific Northwest's quintet success. This follow-up to 2012's Sentenced to Life shan't disappoint.

Graveyard – Innocence & Decadence 61SUPl+ZmcL

Genre: Stoner/Blues/Heavy metal
Origin: Gothenburg, Sweden
Label: Nuclear Blast

Buy now on

One of my favorite bands of the last several years has returned with more blues-based rock that borders on a classic heavy metal sound and a modern stoner rock one. The new record has a few moments that seem almost Motorhead-like, which could mean they're tour with them last year rubbed off on them. Regardless, if you're into The Sword, Clutch, Priestess, and the likes, and you have yet to give Graveyard a spin…The fuck is wrong with you?

Huntress – Static 91DyVFRn9kL._SL1500_

Genre: Heavy metal
Origin: Highland Park, California
Label: Napalm

Buy now on

Singer Jill Janus has had a hell of a ride since the last record, and it almost seems like there is an added fire under the new record because of it. This band has really grown over their three records, and this one might be their best. The classic metal influence is still firm, but they've certainly become their own band.

Parkway Drive – Ire 81H74l9jroL._SL1425_

Genre: Metalcore
Origin: Byron Bay, Austrailia
Label: Epitaph

I have no idea what's going on in this song that I've included below. The entire first two-minutes felt like an intro to the song, but nope, the intro came back. Anyway, this record is more of the Australian metalcore that this band churns out so well. The other songs I've heard from the record are a bit better, but I feel like this is a band with a lot of vocal haters. Said haters won't be swayed.

Vampire – Cimmerian Shade EP 526189

Genre: Black/Death metal
Origin: Gothenburg, Sweden
Label: Century Media

Buy now via Century Media

Going to end this edition with a band that was surprisingly tricky to track down, which was weird in our "digital age." This EP, or Mini LP as I've seen it listed elsewhere, is some pretty solid metal that bobs and weaves between old-ish school black metal, death metal and even a little bit of death 'n' roll. Pretty cool, I'll be investigating this band further.

VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum2qvbbeb

Genre: Black metal
Origin: Paris, France
Label: Agonia

Buy now on

Pretty grim and pretty French. This is straight up, no frills black metal for those that think overt melody and epic atmosphere are bullshit. Features current and former members of Aosoth and Antaeus. Frankly not familiar with either, but the result is pretty neat.
