Hello guys and goats, I have been totally slammed and missed metal forum-ing, and mostly lost track of a lot of posts and releases and such. But I do have a few notables I have been spinning and want to share! (I can hear the collective "Thank Beelzebub!" go out across the cybersphere)

*Disclaimer! I did not double check the true release for all of these - but according to BC they are 2021s. Sometimes a re-release will sneak its way in or contradict MA, and usually I am a stickler for accurate posting!

ALSO - I did not search to see if these were posted already! I also attribute correctly as much as possible and if you posted any of these then good on ya, mate!

Stress Angel - Bursting Church, Blackened death/thrash from Brooklyn that is not poseury and slays.

Stress Angel - Bursting Church | Dying Victims Productions (bandcamp.com)

Oxygen Destroyer - Sinister Monstrosities Spawned By the Unfathomable Ignorance of Humankind, blackened death/thrash from Seattle

Sinister Monstrosities Spawned By the Unfathomable Ignorance of Humankind | Oxygen Destroyer (bandcamp.com)

Bloodspawn - s/t, Filthy tomb metal, yes I just made that up. If you want to know what tomb metal is listen to this. St. Louis, USA.

Bloodspawn | Bloodspawn | Dismal Fate Records (bandcamp.com)

Гробъ - Смирение (Humility), Melodic black metal, one-man act from Bulgaria. One of the better releases you will find on More Hate prod.

Смирение (Humility) | Гробъ | More Hate Productions (bandcamp.com)

ReDimoni -On the Brink of Existence, Thrash from Spain, vocals are going to be hit or miss but overall this is a great EP with a lot of riffs and some leads and changes to chew on.

On The Brink Of Existence | ReDimoni (bandcamp.com)

Cultum Interitum - Veneration Of The New Dawn, Ok, finally some evil gnarly shit. Hypnotic, dark and menacing blackened death doom from Poland.

Veneration Of The New Dawn | Cultum Interitum (bandcamp.com)

Prieuré - La foi des bourreaux, French black metal that is fairly raw but slays with riffs, tempo and some melody

La foi des bourreaux | Prieuré | Vetus Capra (bandcamp.com)

Ondfødt - Norden, Finnish black. 1 promo track but this is wicked good stuff here.

Norden | Ondfødt | Immortal Frost Productions

CRESCENT - Carving the Fires of Akhet, Egyptian blackened melodic DM. Not going to lie I tend to like the whole Egyptian DM thing, even if these vocals are a bit off. 

Carving the Fires of Akhet | CRESCENT | LISTENABLE RECORDS (bandcamp.com)

Amnessia Eterna - Malditos, Chilean thrash/heavy metal that is muy caliente! And polished! Great sound and feel to this promo track.

Malditos | Amnessia Eterna (bandcamp.com)

Venefixion - A Sigh From Below, French DM. Promo track slays.

A Sigh From Below | Venefixion (bandcamp.com)

Sjenovik - Dissolution of Innocence, tortured, defiant and pretty good black metal from...Phoenix? 

Dissolution of Innocence | Sjenovik | Aphotic Sonance (bandcamp.com)

PANDEMIC OUTBREAK - Skulls Beneath the Cross, Polish DM that slays. One of my favorite straight DM releases so far!

Skulls Beneath the Cross | PANDEMIC OUTBREAK | Awakening Records (bandcamp.com)

Shapeless - He Who Whispers Across All Dimensions, Raw atmo-black from Australia that is worth a look if only for the sick af art.

He Who Whispers Across All Dimensions | Shapeless (bandcamp.com)

Gautam Buddha - Rebirth Part 1, Shout out to my man Navy, this one is Buddhist black metal/noise that honestly I like in theory more than the actual listening, but it is pretty cool.

Rebirth Part 1 | Buddha (bandcamp.com)

UNIVERSALLY ESTRANGED - Reared Up In Spectral Predation, DM debut from Texas, If you like the last Tomb Mold this is sorta like that with more bounce and some 'spacy' effects. Nice and trippy at times.

Reared Up In Spectral Predation | UNIVERSALLY ESTRANGED | Blood Harvest (bandcamp.com)

Dungeon Serpent - World of Sorrows, to Canada for some more slay-acious death thrash.

World of Sorrows | Dungeon Serpent (bandcamp.com)

Beastlor - Galaxies of Death, Fair bit of wankery at play here, Thatguy is probably all over this, but its actually pretty cool. Post black DM. USA.

Galaxies of Death | Beastlor (bandcamp.com)

Militaria - Remains With Pain, One man Aussie Thrash that kills the throwback vibe, but with an un-ironically serious theme.

Remains With Pain | Militaria (bandcamp.com)

Exaversum - To Live And Die With, One man Mexican black metal. 

To Live And Die With | Exaversum | Marwolaeth Records (bandcamp.com)

Plague Lord - The Silent King, Aussie DM that blends three or so main styles all of which kick ass.

The Silent King | Plague Lord | Iron Blood and Death Corporation (bandcamp.com)

Ok, that's part 1

Hey Hungalicious, what's shakin' bud? Sorry to hear you've been so slammed with work lately but I'm glad you were able to make time to stop by and post some new releases for us. A few of these have definitely been posted already, Humility, Cultum Interitum, Ondfodt, Crescent, Dungeon Serpent...but it might not all have been here on this, the appropriate thread. Have to admit I've gotten lazy of late and taken on the bad habit of just posting new stuff on the WAYLTN thread most of the time. But I reckon as long as it gets posted somewhere we're all good.

I feel you of late brother Hunglikeahorse. Work has kept me so busy of late that I haven't really had time to dig into Bandcamp as much as I like. Looks like we're heading towards another big COVID run this fall and winter which means more long days at work and related silliness. I'm completely dependent on you guys posting new shit to find anything these days, so I appreciate the effort.

Gautam Buddha - Rebirth Part 1

This is pretty cool (save for the atrocious drum sounds). Definitely looks to be Indian, but the riffs sound very European at times. Some interesting melodies. Annoyingly, the band/album have such a common name that I can't seem to find any info on them. Would be interesting to read a bit of the backstory on this and how they relate black metal to Buddhism.

Stress Angel - Bursting Church

I've been jamming this one a bit too. Vocals aren't the strongest, but overall a decent effort.

I'll have to check out the rest.

Part 2

Earthe - The Path To Where You Belong, Endless blues derived heavy metal riffage with Scott Weiland/John Bush vocals and some Pantera attitude. This one is a banger front to back, no corpse paint required.

▶︎ The Path To Where You Belong | Earthe | Careless Records (bandcamp.com)


Warmoon Lord - Battlespells, Surely someone posted this already, because its one of the best black metal releases this year imo. Finland.

Battlespells | Warmoon Lord (bandcamp.com)


Black Hosts - Onward Into The Abyss, High octane blackened speed/thrash from Poland. EP

Black Hosts - Onward Into The Abyss | Helldprod Records (bandcamp.com)


Rotten Funeral - S/T, A little raw and unhinged and very evil and satanic. NY

ROTTEN FUNERAL | ROTTEN FUNERAL | Transylvanian Recordings (bandcamp.com)


FOSSILIZATION - HE WHOSE NAME WAS LONG FORGOTTEN, More tomb metal! Like choking on a pile of dust from the floor of an ancient mausoleum. (and that title could really explain a lot, really most, people so its not very helpful). Brazil.



Ascended Dead/Atomicide - Split, Beastial war-goat destruction!!!

Ascended Dead/Atomicide | Ascended Dead / Atomicide | Dark Descent Records (bandcamp.com)


GOAT TYRANT - Towards The Threshold Of Death, Awesome black thrash goat metal here. Poland

Towards The Threshold Of Death | GOAT TYRANT | Fallen Temple (bandcamp.com)


Defacement - S/T - Cavernous black death with brutal sensibilities. Netherlands.

Defacement | DEFACEMENT | I, Voidhanger Records (bandcamp.com)


BELLICISTE - Deathsworn, Icy black from New Zealand



Next, maybe a mid-year list. But I need to see what else the General has been posting first and catch up some.

I have posted plenty of 2021 releases as always Hungarooni but they're mostly on the WAYLTN thread. Some can be found here on this new & upcoming thread as well, but it's probably only 25% of them here and 75% over there. We've only been signed up here for like 3 months so it might still be possible for you to catch up.

I did also post a mid-year list a few weeks ago, someone made a thread just for that which should be easy enough to find and there are only a handful of responses on a single page as it didn't get a lot of feedback. Come to think of it I've actually only posted my mid-year black metal list as of yet, I still need to post my mid-year list for everything else, i.e. death metal and black/death. Thst list has been made so I'll do that later and also my top 10-20 albums of each year from 1975 til today list is ready to go as well, just have to write some bullshit as a preface and post it.

I can't wait for Helloween's self-titled release in June. Here is a taste of things to come:


Now that this album has been out for a bit, I can confirm that it's an excellent album.  Really cool idea to bring all 3 vocalists into the mix to create one beautiful piece of melodic power metal.  Kiske will always be my favorite Helloween singer, but you really can't go wrong with any of them.

    • 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!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  

      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
