  1. Igorrr is a band that hails from France, and although they really can’t be associated with any singular genre, broadly speaking they are considered an experimental metal. “Spirituality and Distortion” is Igorrr’s 4th full length studio album to date, their last being 2017’s “Savage Sinusoid”. - Its hard to describe, to pin-point this album. Raw and bursting with emotion, “Spirituality and Distortion” is 14 tracks of absolutely no compromises. In the space of a little under an hour, Igorrr has successfully crossed the expansive seas of genres, and crafted a perfectly blended sampler of seemingly every genre to have ever existed. Truly its all in this one package; from European classical arrangements, to electronic breakdowns, to more Middle Eastern inspired themes, to polka, to a cappella interludes, and then of course back to extreme metal. In a time where music is so heavily categorized (looking at you death metal, with your technical, progressive, slam, melodic, brutal and other such sub genres), its great to have an experience that truly throws that notion of categorization to the wind and takes so many risks. There are very few “safe” moments to be found here. Metal bands commonly work non-metal elements into their albums, typically seen as distinct intros or interludes, but almost always return to a focus of metal at their core. Igorrr have instead decided to treat each element with equal weight, an approach not often heard. What is perhaps most impressive, is how easy of an album this could have been to mess up. Without careful songwriting and structuring each piece could have fallen victim to over-saturation, and have confused and frustrated the listener. Especially since the songs follow a more linear approach, each one sharing a separate glimpse into this distorted universe Igorrr paints, not relying on the verse/chorus formula as often. However, Igorrr pulls it off seamlessly, writing simple yet effective melodies that weave all of the vastly diverse instruments together; melodies that often culminate in a plethora of impactful pays offs and engaging moments. All of this is tied thematically back to the song titles, album artwork, and album title, providing a subtle commentary on the religions and beliefs found throughout the world. Referenced by the inclusion of so many distinct genres, each one a twisted or distorted version of what it would be on its own, there is an underlying stance of things not always being what they appear to be, or rather, that things are not always black and white. Some highlights of the album would include the gorgeous vocal harmonies in “Polyphonic Rust”, the groove-laden “Camel Dancefloor, which continues to layer upon a simple yet catchy foundation, and the build up in “Himalaya Massive Ritual” featuring acoustic instrumentation, bells, and intense vocal harmonies, all which descend into powerful guitar riffs. This final touch that seals the deal is the fantastic production. Intense and with crystal clarity, the precision of the production amplifies the very tight performances of all the musicians involved. The guitar tones are crushing without being over-gained, the bass is punchy and audible, the drums sound like cannons, and the vocals are robust and soaring. Really, there are no criticisms here. This album is a breathe of fresh air, and a testament to any who claim “there isn’t any good new music”, or that metal died in the 80s. Give this album a listen. Or a few. 10/10
  2. Greetings, My band is looking for a guitarist for an experimental/progressive extreme metal band. Bands influences are Ihsahn, Leprous, Ne Obliviscaris, Blotted Science, Death, etc...

Thank you. - Mike
  3. I'm looking for people for an online experimental grindcore band. Mainly guitar, and bass players. I've been mashing up different genres of music for awhile. I have a home music studio and I'm looking to provide drum tracks and vocals. I'm a lyricist, more so on the conscious side of things than gore, and have tons of material. I actually like having a message in the music other than decapitating puppies. Some bands I dig that I'd say I'm heavily influenced by are old Agoraphobic Nosebleed, No One Gets Out Alive, Converge, Genghis Tron, Shredded Corpse, Napalm Christ, All Out War, CombatWoundedVeteran, Acrid, Pig Destroyer, Benumb, Assūck, Extreme Noise Terror, Disrupt, Dropdead, Brutal Truth and Enemy Soil just to name a few. I've been a lifelong metalhead, and I'm hoping to find the right people for this project. Please hit me up if you are interested.
  4. Hello. I'm a one man band, Escaping Aghartha. I create emotional songs, utilizing contrast to increase audial sensitivity. In this, I both soothe and abuse the listener, creating a genre-defying and unique metal album that is boundary-pushing. I released my first album recently, for streaming here. https://escaping-aghartha.bandcamp.com/album/evoke-contrast-evolve Thoughts, criticisms, etc. are always welcome. Cheers.
  5. Hi, guys. I'm new around here, so I'll share some words about what I care about. My name is Andrei and I'm a vocalist and woodwinds player (recorders, whistles, bagpipes but also accordion). I live in Romania and have a band called E-an-na. We play mainly folk metal, but if you listen to our music you'll notice a lot of different influences. I'm always trying to break the musical stereotypes of folk metal, or of the music I play in general (I work with other bands from different genres as well, but that is another topic), and that will become more and more obvious as we'll keep releasing new stuff. We're currently working on a full LP which I hope we'll release around may 2019. It's really complex and only time will tell how we manage to fulfill this massive project. We've toured quite a bit since 2016, when we started our live activity, and even got to play Wacken Open Air in 2017, where we won the 2nd place at Wacken Metal Battle. A really unique experience. We always get a fantastic vibe from the audience, even if our lyrics are in romanian, and often the audience doesn't understand a word. Yet another proof that music can connect people on so many levels- The concept around which our band revolves is that of escaping: "E-an-na" means "the home of the skies" in ancient sumerian, and for us it is an otherworld that we created so that we can escape all the mundane negativity that is drowning our current world. A sanctuary where all people with good intentions are welcome. Below is our latest single, VIU. Give it a spin and tell me what you think! On the channel you can find all our music, some epic gig videos & links to our other social media. If you have any wish to find out or discuss something about E-an-na I'm here.

  8. Hi folks! I released an album this week under the moniker "Eulogy" called "Into the Heart of Light." It loosely chronicles my recovery from a brain hemorrhage I suffered after falling while hiking in West Virginia. I'm based in the Indianapolis area, and my primary influences include King Crimson, Neurosis, and Converge. I'd love for you guys to take a listen and share your thoughts. I've included links to the music, as well as my social media accounts. Cheers! --Sean https://eulogymusic.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/Eulogysongs/ https://twitter.com/Eulogytune

    Hello all. Metal is pretty great, but recently I've been trying to get into some more experimental pop style music. However, since I am pretty much completely new to the genre, Its been somewhat hard trying to find quality music. If anyone has any suggestions of alternative pop that might suit the metal palette, please post below. Some of my all time favorite bands include Devin Townsends various projects, tool, abbath, rotting christ, machine head, death, karnivool, katatonia, rise against, extreme noise terror, vektor, fleshgod apocalypse, killswitch, Novembers doom, red fang, and various underground black metal efforts, so my taste are all over the place. Thanks! (oh and children of bodom as well, lets just not mention some of their newer material)

  11. Hello! I have a project that I have been working on for the last decade or so. It's a Grindcore/Experimental project. The band is called The Patient Died Suddenly (xTPDSx). It's a 1-man-band. I have a Bandcamp account setup, just wanted to get some feedback. This project started off grindcore with a humorous lyrical side, but has now ended up as a "whatever I want" type thing. My latest EP was a mix of Sludgy Groove type metal, which turned out to be instrumental since I lack decent vocals (but I try). So yeah, constructive critiques are welcome! Thanks! https://thepatientdiedsuddenly.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/xTPDSx/
