Gruesome
Release: 
Savage Land

Gruesome are one of the latest Death Metal brigades originating from California (USA) and exists for about two years on the scene. The deal behind the band is that the original formation is consisted of members generally having a fair share of metal experience by playing in many death metal bands prior to Gruesome’s creation. For example, the vocal and guitarist Matt Harvey has played in Gravehill, Repulsion, Exhumed and Exodus.

Hooded Menace-Effigies of Evil

Artist: 
Hooded Menace
Release: 
Effigies of Evil
Label: 
Relapse Records

'Effigies of Evil' is Hooded Menace's debut release on Relapse Records. The Finnish Doom/Death duo plays down-tuned guitars so heavily dark and at times so slow, that you can almost feel how they drag along dark damp dungeon floors. This is mixed together with melodic riffs and supported by the brutal guttural saliva drenched vocal. It all just comes together in a really enjoyable album. I hear clear references to old Paradise Lost, Candlemass and Cathedral, so if you like any of those I think you will like Hooded Menace.

Locrian-The Clearing & The Final Epoch

Release: 
The Clearing & The Final Epoch
Label: 
Relapse Records

When I got this album I had never heard of the band before and not heard any of their previous works, but the presentation of the band got me interested as soon as I read the words experimental, dark ambient and noise. I thought this could be interesting, as this kind of music, if it is done well, will take you on a journey into your own imagination. This is not music you only listen to, this is music you feel.
