THIS list of best heavy stuff of 2013, and read the review and the interview for Caosgon THERE).
on Netrayoni they also display their modus operandi of writing improvisationnal, ritualistic music. its hypnotic and of course heavy nature, could remind Sleep, but they bring in more diversity, i'd say their music is less based on the guitar riffs, with some keys parts, more spacey quitar leads, vocals. it sounds very live (in fact it's for the most part live recordings in the studio), with a sludgy very organic guitar sound with also some trippy effects, good drumming with a spontaneous feel. they slowly takes you on a jamming spacey journey and let you sink deeply in the waves of sonic vibrations. it's a good thing it's a double CD because I can listen to it the whole day!
Pure dark primitive psychedelia.

Sete sept star is a very, I mean very, special band. it's Kae screaming and making as much noise as possible with her bass guitar and Kiyasu is drumming like a blastbeating grinder, but with also the hardest free jazz drumming influences. punishing and smart. noisegrind can't really go farther from easy listening..but this doesn't prevent Sete sept star from being a really interesting and enjoyable listen. if you want to read what I already posted about them (including an interview), HERE it is.
Nahu is a guitar / drums duo playing some powerfull grind / death, the straightforward brutality and groove of death metal coupled with the speed and nervous agression of grindcore. very catchy songwriting and crushing delivery. I discovered Nahu with this split but won't fail to listen to their others releases!

don't miss this good dose of Suffering mind's old school grind (or blastcore as they call their music) with a really good balance between frenzy and crushing grooves.

THERE). Noctambulous jaws within sempiternal night, the second album by Ohio's Prosanctus inferi is a masterpiece in old school, yet quite brutal and technical, death metal. it's as magnificently putrid as the cover art by Paolo girardi, not because of a low-fi production but because of the riffs itself and of the vocals (reminding a bit Angelcorpse). combining a punishing execution with a real death metal atmosphere it was one of the more enjoyable album in the genre released last year.

HERE the different reviews and interviews related to them in Blasting days). when I read that they were releasing a double LP I thought that a very ambitious, more complex and progressive album was on the way. But with Ravenous solemnity i've been surprised to, well...not been surprised that much this time. it's more a subtle maturation than a new evolution or experiments. maybe it will be for next time. anyway it's ok because it's another really good, finely crafted and finely executed, album. the songs are shorter and I'd say more straighforward than in Night sky transform and at the same time the grind elements are again less present than it was in Axiom. we could say that most of the time it could be described as a mix of dark and raging hardcore and black metal with some melodic and epic touches. with really good and personnal vocals, good and creative riffing, and the new drummer is doing good as well. that's what I'm saying for the moment, but I suppose that, like it was with their other releases, after some more listen I will discover new subtilites in the songs and in the overall atmosphere of the album. anyway I highly recommend you try it and make your own opinion it sure will be worth it.
