Godless- Swarm

  India’s finest Godless are releasing a heavy, heavy death metal epic October 27th with some thrash metal sprinkled in for good measure.  It’s a relentless and energetic EP that you absolutely need to get your hands on.  Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger (ex Obscura, Ex Defeated Sanity) stamped his seal of […]

KOSM- Cosmonaut

  Progressive Metal outfit KOSM is releasing their debut album “Cosmonaut” November 16th and am pleased I had to the opportunity to listen to it.  Being a big Mastodon and Gojira fan I heard plenty of nods towards those modern day prog greats.  KOSM does a solid job […]

Diagoras- Enigma

Progressive/Technical Death Metallers Diagoras recently released their EP “Enigma” October 5th.  It’s a very groovy and technical when it has to be.  Lots of great tech bands pride themselves in the such, and can understand why some people shy away from these weird sub genres.  Diagoras though crafts […]

Nomera- Holos

  Instrumental Prog Metal Band Nomera has an album out called “Holos” and it’s a very good one, to say the least.  There’s so many solid instrumental bands with unique sounds (some sound a bit repetitive or dull but you get that in every genre really) but Nomera […]

Samuli Federley- Lifestream

Instrumental Prog guitarist Samuli Federley released “Lifestream” July 20th through Inverse Records.  I am so glad I checked this out.  Anyone that is into melodic, experimental guitarists that don’t overdo it and create great soundscapes (IE Graham Young).  Federley also seems to have a flair for the dramatic and […]
