Ghoul – Dungeon Bastards91GFP0WFfFL._SL1500_

Genre: Thrash/grindcore
Origin: Oakland, California
Label: Tankcrimes

Buy now on Amazon.com

Bay Area's best band of buddies with bags on their brains are back! Alliteration aside, this record is a fun record and should appeal to trash fans, old school death metal fiends, and those that like their metal with some mystique.

Infinite Density – Recollapse of the Universea3912600940_10

Genre: Technical death metal
Origin: Melbourne, Australia
Label: self

Buy now on Bandcamp.com

The mastermind behind this death metal gem is probably my favorite modern bassist, Cygnus of Ne Obliviscaris. He taps vocalist Ben Boyle to discuss all things space, and this duo created some pretty (inter)stellar stuff. See what I did there? We've got the stream here, so enjoy!

Ringworm – Snake Church912bLbBWt-L._SL1500_

Genre: Thrash/Hardcore
Origin: Cleveland, Ohio
Label: Relapse

Buy now on Amazon.com

This album is comprised of no frills, foot on your throat, sonic bludgeons. If you're looking for some melodic, proggy, soaring metal, you need to fuck right off. This is just over a half-hour of chaos, rage, and rad fretwork.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez – CorazonesCn-_GIjVMAAMZnN

Genre: Experimental
Origin: El Paso, Texas
Label: Ipecac

Buy now on Amazon.com

I read somewhere that this record is Omar's most straight forward collection of songs in this batch of releases. The Mars Volta/At The Drive-In axe-man is toying with indie melodies and some borderline ballads. If this one is too weak or whatever for you, just know there will be ten more records by him by year's end. So wait a few weeks.

Thank You Scientist – Stranger Heads Prevail61ZIL9xcnoL

Genre: Progressive
Origin: Montclair, New Jersey
Label: Evil Ink Records

Buy now on Amazon.com

Somewhere between ska, soul, and metal is Thank You Scientist. There are big horn sections, stellar technical musicianship, and infections groovy melodies. Fans of RX Bandits, Coheed and Cambria, The Dear Hunter, and the likes, should give this record a spin.

Valient Thorr – Old Salt8192GNAGO8L._SL1200_

Genre: Heavy metal/Southern Metal
Origin: Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Label: Napalm

Buy now on Amazon.com

Valient Thorr have once again graced our planet with their unique brand of kinda-thrash, kinda-punk, and certainly rocking type of madness. Album number eight features some fresh faces in the band, but the result is still what you'd expect and hope for from the band.

Zodiac – Grain Of Soul815E83LPVSL._SL1500_

Genre: Stoner
Origin: Münster, Germany
Label: Napalm

Ending this week on some straight up smokey rock n roll. These German lads will scratch the itch you're experiencing while you wait for new Graveyard and Priestess. And boy-howdy, will this satisfy that itch.
