Still EP (Throatruiner)
On a playlist with: Oathbreaker, Young And In The Way, Dendritic Arbor
Listen Still EP full stream (here)

It’s kinda nuts, but MetalSucks favorites Cowards had even more awesome material than the ten jams that populated their 2015 juggernaut Rise To Infamy. But nearly 22 months later, here’s Still — three new cuts, two Rise-era cover songs — from the guys we count on to decode life in post-Bataclan Paris. Their reminagining of “Every Breath You Take” (titled “You Belong To Me”) is profound, yet far from the EP’s best moment. Watch this band, they’re on the verge.

Winterwaker (Hammerheart)
On a playlist with: Kjeld, Darkthrone, Absu
Listen “Winterwalker” (here)

If ever an audit was made of MetalSucks coverage, some nerdbag analyist would spot an irregularity: There’s a massive disparity between our “play count” of Kjeld’s awesome 2015 album Skym and the amount of mentions of its authors in our pages. Let’s start correcting that right now by pointing you to Tarnkappe, a project that shares a member with Kjeld. Crank it up!!!!

Stench Price EP (Transcending Obscurity)
On a playlist with: Atheist’s Elements, Cynic, Cannabis Corpse
Listen Stench Price EP full stream (here)

Stench Price mastermind Peter Shallmin: “The primary idea [is] to mix raw death metal and grindcore with the relaxing warmth of bossa nova and lounge music … Being a long-time collector of unadapted Caribbean, Latin-American (mostly Brazilian) music, I’ve got a serious foundation in bossa nova and lounge. I desired to show a symbiosis of most intense fury and chilling atmosphere, which is inherent in bossa and lounge.” Sure, why the fuck not!

enuff-znuffEnuff Z’nuff
Clowns Lounge collection (Frontiers)
On a playlist with: Aerosmith, Oasis, Mr. Big
Listen “She Makes It Harder” (here) “Rockabye Dreamland” (here) “Good Luv” (here) “Dog On A Bone” (here)

It wasn’t until 1999 that it felt good again to love Cheap Trick. Once America’s greatest power pop rockers, they had wilted in the wake of a mega-hit ballad — which succeeded despite (and to the detriment of) their down-to-earth vibe. Then came an awesome tour on which Rick Nielsen and crew performed each of their first four albums across multi-night stands in big markets. Since then and their theme for a hit sitcom, Cheap Trick is rightly a Mount Rushmore band in rock. Likewise, this fate awaits hook gods Enuff Z’nuff, but on a much smaller scale. Someday

Razing The Shrines Of Optimism (Third Eye Temple)
On a playlist with: Celtic Frost, Ravencult, Desaster
Listen “Burnout Hearts Exhibition” (NSFW) (here)

From STCOT author to STCOT reader, I offer a tip about new music discovery: If it’s on the video streaming service Vimeo that you encounter an advance song from some exciting new release — not on YouTube like usual — hold on to your lunch cuz the video is probably disturbing to the point of nausea. Update 12/2/16: New release date is January 20

The Irrepassable Gate (Profound Lore)
On a playlist with: Predatory Light, Krypts, Auroch
Listen The Irrepassable Gate full stream (here)

When it comes to tiny niche record labels, I wonder about the numbers. Of course there’s no shortage of amateur and emerging bands — just scope a roster of the thousands of awkward regional metal fests — but what number of hours and dollars must be stretched to discover and develop artists with zero profile? In our modest corner of the music world, how many demo submissions and insider tips yield each year’s worth of albums for any of the awesome little labels? Does either party get paid even a five-digit sum for a massive amount of work? In other words, all these questions amount to one inquiry: How is Profound Lore Records so awesome?
