Guardians (Northern Silence)
On a playlist with: Bathory, Korn, Wintersun
Listen Guardians full stream (here)

A rare vibe here. Guardians is five 11-minute epics, the kind that build from awesome quiet parts to huge loud parts. And it’s traditional Scotland stuff with bagpipes, poetry, and that type of anthemic melody that’s shorthand for “heroism and loyalty.” About now, that might disgust you, the worship of dubious valor and of the grand old days before plumbing and medicine. But after a canyon-wide intro, things crash to earth via Saor’s vocals: they kinda belong to atmospheric black metal, inherently empathetic, not proud of anything. Crank it up!

Force Of Profanation (Metal Blade)
On a playlist with: Blood Incantation, Warbringer, Wormrot
Listen Force Of Profanation full stream (here)

When you think of thrash metal, maybe you first think of it in terms of its vibe at the time of South Of Heaven, Justice, and Practice What You Preach. That’s how you forget how close thrash was to extreme metal in the preceding years. It mellowed before death metal’s breakthrough, but first there came brutal records by Flotsam & Jetsam, Kreator, and Slayer — sans the blast beats and low growled vocals to come. Ravencult does both, the thrash metal skank beat and extreme metal double bass beats, blackened as a tire fire and goosed by ninth-fret power chords, no humanism or sense of humor yet less than monstrous.

trees-of-eternityTrees Of Eternity
Hour Of The Nightingale (Svart)
On a playlist with: Swallow The Sun, Katatonia, Jesu
Listen Hour Of The Nightingale full stream (here)

You might be reeling at the thought of nearly 60 million people voting for history’s shittiest candidate for the American presidency, at the sheer magnitude of sad, sheltered self-styled victims failing to register the signs of a used-car con obvious as a fart during asshole surgery — and the number of those who knew better yet still voted with their dicks. I mean, that’s a huge number. This week’s second-most surprising number is 90,000, ie. the number of views of a video by a band called Trees Of Eternity from an album titled Hour Of The Nightingale. That’s the spirit of acceptance! Metal is more American than America.

Darkness Transcend (Blood)
On a playlist with: Ulcerate, Beyond, Blut Aus Nord
Listen Darkness Transcend full stream (here)

It’s hilarious that weed is more legal now that no one could possibly relax. Likewise, extreme metal is now redundant to the horrors of reality. Metal people once required renderings of death, pain, and despair as a means of preparation, of comprehension, and of empowerment. Now we can achieve the same strength just by facing the material world, so sad is our regression and so lasting is the damage to be done. Life is a death metal song. But I wouldn’t blame you if you crammed some last-minute workouts for your emotions here before shit gets fully weird. Setentia can help.

First Step To Surpremacy EP (Ván)
On a playlist with: Conqueror, Sarcafago, Beherit
Listen First Step To Surpremacy full stream (here)

It’s like when you exclaim that an annoying song is stuck in your head, one snippet of a singsongy melody looping in your mental “ears” like a son of a bitch. Then you utter the song’s title, and everybody around you groans, like “Thanks a lot, now we too shall be singing that annoying shit all day.” That’s basically how you feel when pointing out that an awesome and very serious band’s name is almost a Seinfeld character.

gaereaGaerea
Gaerea EP (Everlasting Spew)
On a playlist with: Watain, Forteresse, Immortal
Listen “Void Of Numbness” (here) “Through Time” (here)

From Gaerea facebook: “Gaerea has no home. Gaerea has no origins. Gaerea is a concept made flesh. The flesh nimbus assembles its molecules only when it’s required to do so, to disgregate and shatter right after.” “Time. Immortality. Endless Life. Endless death. ‘[…] something at once dead and never dying, a thing utterly without destiny and thus imperishable, possessing that abysmal absence of mind, that infinite vacuity which is the essence of all that is immortal.'” You promise?
