Try Something New Thursday 2-21-19

Hey people! We’re back with our third edition of Try Something New Thursday! You can check out the bands from the first and second editions before diving into this one!  We hope our followers enjoy another eclectic mix of music from TMR!


Utica’s Progressive Death Metal behemoths Inhumatus bring a technical, chaotic, heavy and emotional sound to the musical game.  I first heard of these guys at the Revocation show a handful of summers ago at the Montage Music Hall in Rochester.  A lot of bands that day before Revo absolutely bored the piss out of me….between them and Rochester’s own Gutted Alive totally made it worth suffering through the boring bands that didn’t click with me until the legendary Revocation hit the stage.  Everything about this band just rips….sweet guitar work, rhythms, the vocals and drums… all just CLICKS.  All they have is a 3 song EP for now, but are working on a full length album. There’s no timetable for that bad boy yet, but doesn’t mean you can enjoy these great tunes!


Icefish is a progressive metal band that brings a lot to the table.  Virgil Donati is the band’s drummer…..and if you know him, anything he touches basically turns to gold.  They’re a melodic and technically proficient band I was turned onto recently, that our followers would definitely dig.  Check out a few of their tracks below and don’t forget to follow them on social media!




Here’s a killer band some of our technical death metal fiends may already know of……but if you don’t, well then have at it! Phil from First Fragment and the other 10 bands he’s in is one of the guitarists in this band……they’re wildly entertaining with their technical passages and pure musical virtuosity.  With their immersive levels of talent, they somehow don’t lose their groove.  Serocs treads that fine line of tech and foot tapping/headbanging groove.  They have a superb album “The Phobos/Deimos Suite” that was released last year.  They have 3 prior releases to this, as well. Check out the band’s music below! Oh, and there’s also a playthrough for one of their songs…..try not to drool too hard, okay?


Here’s another great technical death metal band for you to drool over.  These guys are flat out stellar, and also are relatively new…..well, to me at least. They’re already working on new music, which is great.  I’ll just let their music do the talking……Vitriol just fucking rules. Check out their EP below and stay up to snuff with them on social media in regards to their shows and upcoming album/EP.  Mmmmmkay?


OKAY LAST TECHNICAL DEATH METAL BAND FOR THIS WEEK! Okay…..maybe.  If you’ve been a good follower and been paying attention, we worked with the guys on premiering their guitar playthrough of “Edge Of Divergence”.  The band has a two song demo with that title, and currently working on a full length album to be released through their record label EastBreath Records.  The guitar virtuosity of band guitarist Victor is just well…..mind blowing at that.  The playthrough a few sentences beforehand is a great testament to that opinion. Check out the two track demo below, and patiently wait for news on their upcoming full length album.


These guys are an amazingly talented weird instrumental fusion/metal/jazz/rock/prog/whatever you want to categorize them as band.  If you dig bands like Panzerballet you’ll love this 3 piece. They recently released a new record The Story of Scott Rötti I highly suggest you should check out.  The guys have crafted a wild, fun, experimental band with so many surprises they’ll keep you guessing.  If you want to listen to something out of the norm you may not expect to, or wanna switch it up Mörglbl is a great start.  They rule! Check out their latest album below!


This instrumental 3 piece released a great EP “Shapes” a few years back, went on some tours and played some stellar shows.  The band recently lost their bassist but quickly acquired a new one.  Their follow up is in the works, and their spectacular guitarist Trayen is also working on new tunes himself! They’re an atmospheric, melodic metal band that loves to djent.  These guys drew me in when I heard “Event Horizon” and was all we had for a while.  Then, they released ” Shapes” and was happy I had more than one song to jam from the Constructs fellows! Let the band’s wild progressive and atmospheric sound and melodies take you into another dimension today. Check out their EP below and follow the guys on their journey to their follow up, as well as Trayen’s solo project!



Earlier this week, I published a review for Prophets’ first LP; from what I gather, it’s been a long road to get this album out, but they’ve done it. Deep brutal death growls meets Revocation-esque riffage, plus some jazzy, ambient interludes. The Indian metal scene is pouting out incredible acts, and these guys aren’t ones to sleep on. Check it out!
