Between The Buried And Me- Automata 2

North Carolina’s premier prog band released the second part of the “Automata” series recently and like Auotmata 1 took a long time to sink in…..why? Well, for starters the second release was melodic like part one but a lot more experimental! The band incorporated more jazz elements and even some […]

Carnal Decay- When Push Comes To Shove

  Carnal Decay is releasing a 7″ split vinyl on July 20th (also available digitally!) through Rising Nemesis Records.  I love death metal you can’t understand (like Visceral Disgorge heavy, for example) but vocalist Michael Kerns has a constant guttural you can understand. “When Push Comes To Shove” […]

Oubliette- The Passage

  Oubliette is releasing their second album “The Passage” July 13th.  The band’s sophomore effort is more mature and a collaboration with a full lineup rather than a solo effort of Mike Low.  Oubliette has a lineup finally and a triple guitar attack…..you should know what that means. […]

Dischordia- Binge/Purge

  Technical/Prog Dissonant Death Metal Experimentalists Dischordia (holy fuck that’s a mouthful of sub genres!) have released an absolute beast of a 2 song 24 minute EP that kicks serious ass.  It’s a technical and chaotic frenzy that perfectly sums up their short existence and most definitely their […]

Jollymon- Voidwalker

  Now, there has been a decent number of bands and artists that have reached out to me since the website’s inception in February.  This has to be one of the coolest bands I digitally laid my hands on since then in the sense its not another kiler […]

Burial In The Sky- Creatio Et Hominus

  Burial In The Sky is set to release it’s second full length Creatio Et Hominus on June 1st.  The band is one of many great modern day experimental progressive death metal bands, with a huge twist…..not to mention other great experimentalists Coma Cluster Void (here’s the interview I did […]

Woechanter

  Woechanter is a blackened death metal project by Morgan Rider (Vocalist/Bassist of Vesperia).  Rider recently released the 4 song demo, and holy shit is it a banger.  Vesperia in comparison is a melodic and progressive death metal band.  Woechanter however, is more straightforward extreme metal.  It has […]

Axios- Erased

  Chicago progressive rock quintet Axios has recently released their full length album “Erased”. It’s a very cool thing to occasionally see progressive and experimental bands focus on the song and soundscape, not always the odd timings and technicality as much as I love my face always being […]

Wrack- Hollow Sun

  Wrack is a progressive metal project by Tyler Cox.  It’s set to be released on June 15th of this year.  It’s a very heavy EP…..also, very rhythmic.  There’s some mood changes which give it more variation than your normal prog band, but for the most part it […]
