mordastigmataMord’A’Stigmata
Hope (Pagan)
On a playlist with: Marduk’s Wormwood, Samael, Woods Of Ypres
Listen Hope full stream (here)

If you were promised a million dollars in return for creating an extreme metal album from scratch by tomorrow, it’d be a good strategy to make a blistering chaotic black metal album. That way, its speed and density could probably veil the fact that your songs are a bit thin. (And its sales potential could be slightly higher than similarly un-songy genres like grindcore and noise.) Meanwhile, an album like Hope by Mord’A’Stigmata must’ve been carefully considered, its mid-tempo black metal throbbing and upset, its every bar and dynamic distinct down the microscope’s viewer. Must jam!

doolDool
Here Now, There Then (Prophecy)
On a playlist with: Gold, The Devil’s Blood, Blood Ceremony
Listen Here Now, There Then full stream (here)

In a sane world, The Devil’s Blood is alongside Ghost on big tours, in big media, atop sales charts, and at the forefront of modern occult rock, like the Stones to Ghost’s Beatles. In our nutty world, TDB frontman Selim Lemouchi died in 2014 right after The Devil’s Blood ended abruptly and weirdly. But before we commit to a lifetime of despair at the injustice of it all, let us step back and acknowledge Gold and now Dool as today’s occult rock powerhouses. There’s no justice, just infinity.

Frctl EP
On a playlist with: Dixie Dregs, Gentle Giant, Scale The Summit
Listen Frctl full stream (here)

It must be tempting for an instrumental band to reach for a mega-statement. Without a human voice and language, their expressions are elusive no matter how awesome are their actual sounds. So overstatement can seem like a countermeasure. But Oruko stay chirpy, spry, and cheery. Only occasionally does Frctl resemble the soundtrack for a celebratory sales presentation.

sunlights-baneSunlight’s Bane
The Blackest Volume: Like All The Earth Was Buried (Innerstrength)
On a playlist with: Seventh Void, The Drip, Vorum
Listen The Blackest Volume: Like All The Earth Was Buried full stream (here)

Sunlight’s Bane vocalist Nick Holland: “One of my favorite bands is Pig Destroyer, so I wanted to do something very sort of unhinged like that. No click tracks, no clean recordings, just something raw. And [Sunlight’s Bane’s other founding member] wanted to do more of a black metal project. We were the only people we knew who wanted to start a band.” That’s how you get blackened grind perfection: necessity and passion.

the-gitasThe Gitas
Beverly Kills
On a playlist with: Nirvana, Monster Magnet, What Escapes Me
Listen Beverly Kills full stream (here)

Sitars, dulcimers, zithers, and other unpronounceable instruments sound awesome in pop music (that band Monsoon), ’60s rock (The Beatles), indie rock (Macha), stoner rock (Monster Magnet), black metal (Cult Of Fire), and post-black metal (Botanist). It sounds pretty awesome with big balls alternative rock too! Crank it up!!

friendshipFriendship
I&II collection (Sentient Ruin)
On a playlist with: Pig Destroyer, Realized, Hellchild
Listen I&II full stream (here)

Here’s a fun game to play with Friendship’s new collection of their self-released EPs, I and II. First, crank it up loud as fuck. Then, as its bonkers Japanese powergrind shocks and disturbs your household, exclaim to them that you love the album and ask that they guess the name of this band so new to your lives. They’ll reply, “Vomit Murder,” “Death AIDS Corpse,” and “Ass Fire” but you just smile serenely and say “Friendship.”
