This is the second full-length release from Anael, a German band playing atmospheric black metal. The sound on this album reminds me of Greek greats like Necromantia -- crisp and clear, yet heavily atmospheric. The vocals are mostly snarled, though there's some clean singing now and again, very tastefully done. Anael's last album was full-on Samael worship, but on this record they've branched out into a sound of their own. There's still plenty of Samael in their slow, deliberate pacing and evil riffing, but there's a lot more variety here.
Second full length of this pure old-school Death/Black Metal band from Brazil. A typical Southamerican obscure attack of the most utterly deep darkness. For fans of SARCÓFAGO, VULCANO, VON, IMPALED NAZARENE and the likes. This album will crush all the fucking bones in your body. I warn you!!!!

DEATHRAID was a bunch of thrashers before being a thrash band. DEATHRAID was attitude and liefstyle before being a music style. One DEATHRAID live gig was banned for obscenity. DEATHRAID was outlawed for theft and housebreaking. DEATHRAID changed 3 drummers. DEATHRAID aimed to be the sickest and vilest band in the area. DEATHRAID was influenced by everything extreme and underground. The song ?Lunatic Souls Domain? is short for LSD. DEATHRAID used to spend the cash earnt from gigs into drugs and alcohol, before playing.
"Returning to haunt the crypts ten years after the sadly rather lacklustre Buried in Time, Italy's venerable Mortuary Drape have delivered a fine return to form in the shape of Spiritual Independence. Dating back to 1987, with the potential exception of the aforementioned predecessor, Mortuary Drape have carved an impressive legacy based on a sound which, while identifiably black metal, draws more from the melodic sensibility of traditional heavy metal than any of the usual genre tropes. This in itself has always been one of the major appeals of the band: a sense of dynamism and understanding of the elements contributing to engaging and memorable songwriting. Throughout the album this element shines through again and again. The band demonstrates an admirable ability to make a riff last just exactly as long as it should, neither abruptly appearing then vanishing nor outstaying its welcome and becoming leaden or plodding.
The Uddevalla Metal Misantroops strike savagely penning 11 tracks full of blistering speed, sheer aggression and merciless brutality. All of this cloaked in the glorious, traditional aura that many strive to achieve, but few can actually reach. Despite being active since 1995, this is the first time IRON TYRANT has released something by a Swedish band. And let me tell you, it was well worth the wait. Just like VORNTH, who took all the time they needed to record their debut album since their inception in 2006.
