Author & Punisher - Beastland (2018)

Beastland, the sixth album from Author & Punisher (the first on Relapse) sounds quite similar to Melk En Honing, with also those melodies shining through the industrial sound. Is that a problem? not really because Tritan Shone is really good at doing this and it results in another great album. But still I expected more change, maybe a subtle addition of some new elements and I feel slightly disappointed it's not really there. But maybe next album will be more surprising, and for the moment I'm happy to have this new excellent album for A & P to enjoy.

Gas Chamber / D.O.C - split7'' (2017)

This excellent split released last year is sadly the last release from Gas Chamber which doesn't exist anymore. They were one of the most original and brilliant hardcore bands and we could say that in a way they did to powerviolence what Refused did to hardcore. These four short songs are another testimony of that (those basslines are awesome!)

Disciples of Christ (who I hope are still active!) is another excellent band, more brutal and grindpunk, they are more traditionnal but they are really good at what they do and their four songs on this split are also really good.

Highly recommended split!

Systemik Viølence - Anarquia​-​Violência (EP 2018)

Anarquia​-​Violência is the EP released this year by the Portugese Systemik Viølence, a band that is taking the d-beat / crust punk scene by storm since 2016, delivering it at its rawest and doing it the way it should, with all the reckless energy and rage needed, using the potential of the style for maximum effects. This EP is thirteen minutes of pure wild raw punk excellency.

Iron Lamb - Blue Haze (2018)

Blue Haze is Iron Lamb third album, another one filled with excellent hard rock sounding half Motörhead half Swedish hard rock (Turbonegro, Glucifer, etc.) with a good balance between all out straight forward rocking and some more melodic songs. I guess you already know by now if it could be your kind of stuff, my advice is, go for it!

Peter Brötzmann & Heather Leigh - Crowmoon (2018)

For some time I was thinking about reviewing a Peter Brötzmann album (if you don't know him he's one of the most important European free jazz musician, a saxophonist), I had to do it, he's among my favourite musicians, but wasn't decided about which one to review (he's releasing many albums, in studio and live). This one convinced me. It's called Crowmoon and released this year, it's a collaboration (he's doing collaborations most of the time) with a pedal steel guitar player called Heather Leigh. it's a one hour long track but a diverse and immersive enough experience to keep your attention. The pedal steel guitar, quite unusual in a free jazz context, is doign mostly drone/atmosphere building while Brötzmann is providing his famous powerfull sax blowing but also shows how good he's also at playing it more quiet, how a complete musician he is. Ii really enjoy this one. If you wanna try one of his recent release, I recommend it.

Husmanskost - Ambi-Valence (2018)

Ambi-Valence is the third Husmanskost album  and this time again they improved on the previous one. Their old school grindpunk is even more catchy and straight to the point, stripped of all unecessary stuff like sample intros and with a bigger dose of heavier thrashy mid tempos parts letting you breath between the blast/d-beats. They also added a few more melodic riffs and choruses, a bit like in neocrust or in Nasum, and it works well.  Ambi-Valence is a really enjoyable album that is doing well everything I like in grindpunk. Like their previous one this album is among my favourites grind albums of the year. Highly recommended!

HØRDÜR - Hubris (2018)

HØRDÜR is a new French grind band, and Hubris (released by the also new, good, and French grind label LIXIVIAT Records) is their first album. They play some old school grind, raw and simple, with a drumming alternating d-beats and blasts and some riffing with some neocrust and black metal kind of melodies (this is not super melodic as you guess, but I mean this is this kind of riffs...). They are good at doing it and if you like the more old school and punkish kind of grind you will very likely enjoy this album. I do!

Oxygen Destroyer - Bestial Manifestations of Malevolence and Death (2018)

Bestial Manifestation of Malevolence and Death is the first album of Oxygen Destroyer from seattle. But what they play is not really US style, their old school thrashy death metal reminds mostly Vader, and also the South-America black/death/trash scene, with also a modern touch with hyperblast drumming to speed up things even more. It's a style of death metal I like very much and since they do it really well, with excellent riffing, drumming and songwriting skills, it makes an album I enjoy a lot.  I will listen to it many times with pleasure. Highly recommended!

H880 - Self-Perception (2018)

H880 is a French producer that combines his techno beats and industrial/noise/dark ambient music. His new album Self-Perception (with the good German label Instruments of discipline) is another testimony of his skills at producing that mix with some more straight-forward beats driven tracks and some more ambient ones. I especially likes how he discreetly adds eerie unsettling sounds here and there, like it's coming from a great distance, from some forgotten memories or from deep under water, to contribute to his mysterious and dark atmospheres. Good stuff.

The Icarus Line - All Things Under Heaven (2015)

I really should have reviewed All Things Under Heaven back in 2015 because it's awesome. This latest The Icarus Line album carries on the wake of The Stooges (the rocking parts but also the most trippy noisy parts with saxophones), and reminds also a bit Destruction Unit and even Brainbombs. A beautifull psychedelic and noisy garage rock masterpiece. Possibly their best one after Penance Soirée.

Napalm Ted - Mouthfull (2018)

Napalm Ted is a Finnish grind trio and Mouthfull is their new cassette (9 songs for a bit more than 20 minutes). This is grindcore with some death/gore elements. Everything is well executed and they're quite good at writing dynamic and catchy songs. cool stuff!

Uniform - The Long Walk (2018)

Last year the first Uniform album made it to my favourite albums of the year list. The Long Walk, their second one, is just following the same way. It just take you to the guts and doesn't let you go, I listen to it every day and each time I like it more. How does it sounds? perfect indus/noise metal, with an immersive sound, but also catchy riffing and impressive vocals. Everything is excellent. What's new since the first album? Unlike the first album all the drumming is not programmed, just some parts, Greg fox (drummer for Liturgy, Ex Eye, etc.) has been added to the band and so there's a more live feel and dynamism to the songs. I had no problem about their digital only drumming, but I think it's now indeed even better. I very highly recommend this album. Awesome stuff!

Parasight - At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb (2018)

Second album from the danish punks Parasight, called At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb, this is pure neocrust with all it's clichés but this time again (you can read HERE my review of their first album) it is excellent, their two albums posing them as one of the very best recent bands in that style.

Dopethrone - Transcanadian Anger (2018)

Transcanadian Anger is the fifth album in ten years for Dopethrone from Montréal (as you guessed / know they like early Electric Wizard yes. oh and Darkthrone too, but it's less evident in the music). They take you on another journey in dirty and thick stoner/doom territory, filled with heavy groovy riffs. The sludge/black metal vocals fits well the miserabilist atmosphere of their music.
Compared to their previous albums nothing new but they maintain their high quality level.

Infuriate - Infuriate (2018)

Infuriate is the first and self-titled album of the eponymous band from Texas. This is a solid brutal death metal album that is rooted is the US death metal tradition but is also up to today's level of technical play. Nothing super special but  an enjoyable death metal album that can appeal to many. I'll be checking their future albums as well.

Facada - Quebrante (2018)

Brazilian grind band Facada is a band I follow since a few years now (but they started fifteen years ago) but this new album, Quebrante, their fourth one, is making a stronger impression on me, the other ones were good, but, I don't know, maybe this one is just better, or maybe my mood these days is more connected to their music. Anyway this is some really good old school grind and i enjoy it, and I suggest you do the same.

Night Verses - From the Gallery of Sleep (2018)

This one sounds cleaner and clearer than most of what I review here, but I enjoy this album and you could do as well. Night Verses is a band from LA and they released this year a great first album called From the Gallery of Sleep. Their music is instrumental post-rock / progressive metal, a bit technical but more about the atmosphere and songwriting. The guitar play reminds me a bit of Omar Rodriguez Lopez (At the Drive-In, The Mars Volta). Well written and well executed music, a really good album.

Shitstorm - Split 7'' with Radiation (2016)

I noticed just recently that the mighty Shitstorm from Miami released in 2016 their latest stuff, a split with Radiation, 7 songs in 6 minutes of super heavy grindcore (a bit like Cellgraft, also from Miami used to do). Draws from Napalm Death, but focusing on the faster and more brutal side (while keeping the punk feel).
Grindcore as it should be done, in my opinion. I can listen to it many times a day.
Heavily recommended.

As for the Radiation side, I just don't know, it's not online. I suppose it's ok...

Ramuh - Glowing Civilization (2018)

Ramuh is a new grind band with Mauro Cordoba (Maruta) on guitar, Dylan Walker (Full of Hell) on vocals and Balázs Pándi (well known in the undrground noise/drum&bass/experimental scene, played with Merzbow, J.K Broadrick, Bill Laswell, Venetian Snares, Zu, etc.) on drums. As expected this EP (on the excellent Nerve Altar label) called  Glowing Civilization is not completely traditionnal grind but it's more straightforward than Maruta or what Balázs Pándi usually does. Fast and technical but keeping the simple intensity of grind in those 7 tracks played in 6 minutes. Good stuff.

Dead Neanderthals - Womb of God (2017)

Dead Neanderthals are experimenting a lot with different collaborations and different style but this time the core duo of DN (René Aquarius on drums and Otto Kokke on sax) are joined by one of their regular collaborators Colin Webster (on sax, he often takes parts in other various free jazz/noise projects) and with Womb of God they are not far from what is the basis of their music : droning and howling sax and hard beating drums. I won't complain since it's among their bests albums I think. This time they stessed the hypnotic, repetitive, droning side of their music and they really managed on those two tracks to slowly build a mesmerising trance that progressively get more frenetic and harder and culminate in a wild climax. Strong "psychedelic ritualistic" side effects, powerfull noise magic operating. you've been warned. Obviously not for everyone but I love it.

Deathgrave - So Real its Now (2018)

So Real its Now is the excellent first album (releaed with Tankcrimes) from Californians Deathgrave. Their deathgrind, taking from the Carcass school is really well done, brutal and groovy and the death/doom/sludge parts are also good, with some nice slow, dirty and heavy riffing. Its a really enjoyable album and I'm glad I discovered them. a new band to follow for deathgrind afficianados.

Sallow Moth - Deathspore (2018)

Sallow Moth is the new death metal project of Garry Brent and the cool Caligari Records released this CD/Tape called Deathspore (around 20 minutes, can we call it an album? I don't know and I don't really care). I knew from Cara Neir that Garry Brent is a skilled songwriter, Cara Neir touched hardcore, grind, black metal, trash, whatever, and it always end up being good. So I'm not surprised at all that he's also very good at crafting old school death metal songs, taking from both the scandinavian and US school (from what I hear), d-beat, morbidangelic heaviness, etc. I really enjoy these five excellent death metal songs. Good stuff.

Lament Cityscape + Theologian - Soft Tissue (2016)

This one, released two years ago is an interesting collabaration between the band Lament Cityscape and Theologian. On this album called Soft Tissue the post-metal doom of Lament Cityscape and the dark ambient / power electronics of Theologian mix very well together. the result is not really surprising, but who cares since it is well done and works really well ? If you like it dark, heavy and industrial there's no reason you wouldn't like it. Seperately the two are good but maybe they are even better together. A really sucessfull collaboration, at least an enjoyable one to listen to...

Sissy Spacek - Ways of Confusion (2018)

Third release for Sissy Spacek this year (the two first are free/noise albums), this time Ways of Confusion is surprisingly released with Nuclear War Now! Productions. They are no less brutal than the rest of NWNP catalog (and it even may be their most brutal release actually!) but they are far more experimental and non traditionnal. Sissy Spacek is a bass/drum (with vocals and electronic noises) duo composed of Charlie Mumma and John Wiese. They tried differents dosages of experimental/grind/noise in their numerous releases (they are among the most interesting extreme bands to follow), this time Ways of confusion is brutal and relentless noisegrind at it most extreme (ok there's no "soft" noisegrind but I mean this really is especially extreme). 39 very short, fast, and very well executed noisegrind tracks. If you like uncompromising noisegrind look no further.

Skeletal Remains - Devouring Mortality (2018)

Devouring Mortality is another excellent album from Skeletal Remains, their third one. They managed again to make old school death metal, floridian style, sound fresh (they're Californian but still, they especially reminds Obituary and also Death), with a good balance between melody and being brutal and technical. With their musical and songwriting skills they're one of the most enjoyable recent death metal band and this new album is another proof of this.

Dylan Carlson - Conquistador (2018)

Conquistador is a solo album from Dylan Carlson, the guitarist/composer of Earth and, guess what, it sounds like... the guitars parts from Earth! No surprise at all then, but it's ok since it is so good. The atmospheres created by these five instrumental guitar tracks have a kind of "dark western" feel that reminds earth's Hex album. One of my favourite so that's good. If you like Earth you'll enjoy this album, if you don't know Earth, well, you really should know Earth you know...

Peristaltic Movement - Anomalies Museum (2017)

Peristaltic Movement is a Brazilian death metal band and Anomalies Museum is their excellent first album.It is modern, quite brutal and quite technical death metal, but with also a strong Cannibal Corpse influence (the vocal lines, the drumming, the groove), and it's not a problem since they're making a good use of it and the ensemble has a good balance between old and new school. A powerfull and very enjoyable debut album.

Abjection Ritual - Soul of Ruin, Body of Filth (2018)

Abjection Ritual had released good death industrial/power electronics albums, but with the new one, Soul of Ruin, Body of Filth, released by Malignant Records, they added some guitars and drums and it's a really successfull evolution for their music, bringing it another dimension, taking it to a new level. Their new metal elements reminds Neurosis, Godflesh, and it's as well done as the death industrial/Power electronics parts that are still theere and the whole is just awesome, with also a fine use of a bit of melody surfacing over the dark heaviness. I think it's among the very best and most interesting albums released this year so far. Highly recommended!

Warfuck - This Was Supposed to Be Fun (2018)

This Was Supposed to Be Fun is the third album from French grind duo Warfuck in which they carry on with their modern grindcore. One thing I think they could improve is the hardcore/crust vocals that I think are too monotonous, but otherwise they're doing a really good job on those fifteen short tracks, with an intensity that is not at the expense of diversity in rhythm and riffing. A well done and enjoyable album.

Restive Plaggona (Dimitris Doukas) is quickly building an impressive discography. Among its recent releases I especially like this album, Leaving the Body, another finely crafted piece of music bringing tohether elements of industrial, techno and dark ambient, with discreet synth melodies and evocative atmospheres. Each of the seven tracks being different and interesting, offering an evolving and immersive listening experience. Recommended!

Memories of Better Days are Gone, released by rising label Wooaargh is the third album of German trio b.abuse. And it's an excellent one (they went further away from post-hardcore clichés and get more personnal, successfully), some surprising and nicely crafted "progressive crust" (or post-crust) that could remind Neurosis, Amebix or The Ex (spoken words ans sax included). Every songs brings surprises and different elements, while maintaining a cohesive atmosphere throughout the album. Recommended stuff !

3Teeth - (2017)

Like industrial metal often is 3Teeth is often bordering bad taste (but the music still less than this awfull cover art...), but still it's enjoyable, hard and catchy/danceable at the same time. <shutdown​.​exe> the second 3Teeth album, released one year ago, reminds NIN, Skinny Puppy, Ministry and even Marilyn Manson, they don't really bring something new, but they do it well. Listening to it bring me a kind of "guilty pleasure" feel but it's cool anyway, and maybe also because of that, and why not after all...

Ilsa - Corpse Fortress (2018)

I don't know if Ilsa's previous four albums (a few splits as well) were less good or if there was something wrong with me when I listened to it but I felt it was ok but not much more than that. But their new one, Corpse Fortress, grabbed my attention and won me at first listen. Their old school death metal reminds both Bolt Thrower and swedeath (with some death-doom elements as well), with good riffing but their strongest force is the heavy groove. Yes, the groove, what sets apart the best death metal band is not the brutality or the technique, it's the groove. And Corpse Fortress is full of this groove. Really good stuff, highly recommended!

Iceage - Beyondless (2018)

I admit being late for getting familliar with Iceage, probably because for me the hype deserved them. And I first listened to Marching Church the solo project of their singer/guitarist (also excellent in a quite similar vein) But sometimes the hype is right... So "Beyondless" is the first Icage album I review, their fourth one. The Danish band is indeed one of the very best recent band in the post-punk/noise rock scene. In terms of influence The Cure first and then Sonic Youth comes to my mind. But where they do better than the countless bands trying to "sound like" is that they bring some inventivity and diversity (including a clever and subtle use of sax), and have their own specific sound, not only reminding other bands. And they have a truly excellent singer that really brings character to the music. Excellent stuff.

Abjured - Absolutist (2018)

"Absolutist" is the second album from the German grind quartet Abjured. Like the first one seven years ago it's very influenced by Nasum, modern grind/punk, super intense and fast, more thight and with a "bigger" sound than traditionnal grind. Ok, "Absolutist" is maybe slightly less Nasum like. Slightly. Anyway I also like this kind of grind and they are good at doing it, and they are not really less original than countless hardcore bands, or doomsters recycling Black Sab' ad nauseam, etc. so why not? Absolutist is a well written and executed modern grind album and I enjoy it.

Bong - Thought and Existence (2018)

Mike Vest (from Newcastle, UK) is one of the best and most prolific guitarist in the heavy, slow and psychedelic rock music (he's also doing 11 Paranoias, Blown Out, and other bands), Bong is its slower and more drone inclined band. The new album to be released in May with Ritual Productions and called Thought and Existence is about "the inward expansive nature of the mind and our senses". By now you probably know what to expect. It is indeed very slow, repetitive, trippy and immersive music, and on this albums the trio has been highly sucessfull in achieving that and making it a really strong and enjoyable listening experience. Maybe their best album. I really like it.

Scorched - Excavated for Evisceration (2018)

This new release from Scorched, called Excavated for Evisceration (do you like poetry?), is not a new album but the gathering of two demos from 2015 and 2017. But it's a good release anyway and I'm discovering them thanks to it, so... What they play is old school thrashy death metal (what a surprise!), vicious riffing for a putrid feel. Could remind early Cannibal Corpse and Autopsy, not exactly, but this kind of stuff... There's also some horror movie style synth interludes, useless in my opinion, but not really a problem either.  If you're into old school death metal I recommended you give it a try.

Pessimist - Pessimist (2017)

I discovered Pessimist with the excellent 12'' Balaklava (in 2016), and the self-titled album he released last year (again on Blackest Ever Black) is also high quality stuff. Sowewhat dub techno with the addition of excellent jungle loops. Combining techno and drum & bass (I said "jungle" because I'd say it's quite old school sounding d & b) is not easy, but Pessimist masters it. With this album he's building an atmosphere that is like a wandering in an old factory/warehouse that is haunted by the echoes of the rave/soundsystem of the nights. I like it.

Voidhanger - Dark Days of the Soul (2018)

Dark Days of the Soul is the third album from Polish trio Voidhanger. Their music sounds like a cool mix of Entombed, Marduk, Martyrdod  and Impaled Nazarene, trashy black/death with a healthy dose of d-beat. They keep things simple and straight to the point and they're good at it producing catchy and memorable songs that anyone into this kind of radical metalpunk would dig.

Emanation - Temple Sleep Crystallization (2016)

Temple Sleep Crystallization is the second album from the Spanish one man band Emanation (you can read HERE my review of it's previous one). This is the kind of black metal that would feel at ease in the company of bands like Blut Aus Nord, Aluk Todolo or Chaos Echoes. There's definitely a black metal base (low-fi guitar sound, blast-beats on some traks, a bit of croaked vocals, the anguished feel), but sounding a bit like it's played by free jazz musicians, plunged into a vortex of dissonance, and passed through a krautrock machine (repetitive patterns and the general weirdness). It is a very special and excellent album.

Repulsione - Desecrating (2018)

Repulsione is an Italian two bass guitars and a drummer grind trio. Desecrating (released by Wooaaargh this month) is their third album (I think, I'm discovering them with this one... but they started in 2004. shame on me, I'm slightly late! ). On these fourteen tracks you'll enjoy some cool deathgrind grooves as well as faster bursts of grind/PV with a "schling schling" snare sound that I really like, with also some good traditionnal grind vocals. Old school sounding but offering something different as well, this is a very nice album I will listen to many times.  Recommended!

H880 - Noir et Mornes (2018), Czarnadusza (EP 2017), You, Me and the Violence (2016)

I'm briefly reviewing here three releases form the French techno producer H880.
His most recent Noir et Mornes stress the most dark ambient side of his industrial & hardcore techno, you guessed it it's darker and more ambient...
the Czarnadusza EP released in the end of last year is more beat-driven, with a more warehouse rave / hardcore feel.
You, Me and the Violence released in 2016 is more an album, a set in 6 acts, and progress from a quieter dark feel to more direct hardcore tracks. (so we could say it combines the sound of his two releases that followed).
Anyway, those three releases, as well as what he did before, is all good and anyone into the bleaker/darker /industrial side of hardcore techno should pay attention to it and enjoy.

Abatuar - Perversiones de Muerte Putrefacta (2017)

Perversiones de Muerte Putrefacta is the first album (after two demos) of the one man band from Panama Abatuar (it's sung in spanish). It's very raw and bestial old school death metal reminds both Revenge and Repulsion. I especially like it's most d-beat/grind parts, breathing some dynamism into the chaos. If you like this kind of musical savagery (I do!) it's a really enjoyable album.

Sammal - Suuliekki (2018)

With their previous threes releases Sammal established themselves as one of the best recent psych/prog rock bands so expectations were very high for this new one Suuliekki (still with Svart Records). While maybe not as strong and immersive as myrskyvaroitus, Suuliekki maintain the top quality we are used to with Sammal, with their exellent typically Finnish melodies and excellency for crafting atmosphere and moods. Here the moods are a bit more varied and globally lighter, while the melancholy is never very far (they are Finnish, mind you!). Another awesome and unique album from Sammal. They stay one of my favourite bands. A must listen if you're into this kind of music. Well, anyone should give it a try actually...

Necrodancer - Void (2017)

Void is the first album from the new band Necrodancer (with members that are or were in Daggers or Verdun). While the "funeral grunge" tag they use isn't to be taken too seriously it's true that their dark and melodic hardcore metal avoid sounding like another generic hardcore/metal band. But what is the most striking is their ability at writing memorable and catchy songs with hooks and grooves. And after seeing them live the other day (their second concert as Necrodancer) I can add they're also really good as a live band. Recommended stuff!
