So far, quite a few of my favourite bands have album release plans for 2018:

Protest the Hero

Between the Buried and Me

Silent Planet

Striker

 

I am insanely stoked for each and every one of them.

While you're here, I bet you'd like that Xenosis album I linked on the last page.

I will check it out today!  I'm one month through a new years resolution of listing and rating every new (to me) album I listen to this year, so the more suggestions I get the better :)

Ha, good luck with that. I'd probably be better off if I kept listening notes, a lot of stuff gets lost in the shuffle.

New Augury track up today. I'm not as thrilled as a lot of my friends seem to be, but I'm still enjoying it:

And was just tipped to this upcoming album from Golgothan Remains. Dissonant DM from Australia. These promo tracks are very promising:  https://golgothanremains.bandcamp.com/album/perverse-offerings-to-the-void

Cool tracks.  I have never heard of "dissonant DM" before.
Really? It's kind of a huge thing right now, lots of bands have been exploring the sound over the last ten years. It started with the likes of Atrocity and Gorguts, but bands like Ulcerate, Portal, Mitochondrion, and a number of others have been carrying the torch for a while now.

Dissonance has really been gaining steam lately, both in death and black metal. Gorguts, Ulcerate, Deathspell Omega, Abyssal, Mitochondrion, Ad Nauseam, Artificial Brain, Ingurgitating Oblivion, Suffering Hour, Setentia, Sunless, Pyrrhon, Zhrine, Plebeian Grandstand, Voidthrone, Mortichnia, Imperial Triumphant, Dodecahedron, Ulsect, Portal, Thantifaxath, Krallice, Okazaki Fragments, and Jute Gyte have all put out distinctive albums I've really enjoyed over the past two or three years. I'm forgetting some, and I would guess you know some of those bands already, especially from the black metal side of things, but I'd recommend checking out any of them you haven't heard already.

Oh hey look, BAN posted while I was typing my list. Neat!

I listen to death metal very rarely, so it does not surprise me that I missed a trend.  I will have to look into it.

Those tracks are pretty cool. I'm slightly tempted to order the bundle as it'd be a rare case on Bandcamp where the postage wouldn't cost more than the item.

Doesn't feel so good when it's happening to you.

Our Place Of Worship Is Silence has a promo track up for their album, due out this coming April. Dark, angry-sounding, energetic DM that might appeal to Macabre, BAN, etc etc. Check it out:

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
