Hello MetalSucks reader! Welcome to Sh*t That Comes Out Today, your Satanic bible of this week’s heavy new releases. We list ‘em, we spotlight ‘em, we link you to their preview jams and full streams — and we usually stick ‘em in a fancy Spotify playlist too (below) — all for your jammage! Now crank this shit up.

Qrixkuor Three-Devils-Dance-CDQrixkuor
Three Devils Dance (Invictus)
On a playlist with: Suspiral, One Master, Chthonic Cult
Listen Three Devils Dance full stream (here)

In a close win for this week’s least pronounceable band name, Qrixkuor edges Sxuperion (below). To recommend it to friends, we’ll won’t mind having to rely on the written word, and often: Three Devils Dance is three awesome odysseys of chaotic, distant death metal visited continually by what sounds like James Murphy climbing in through (and again expelled from) the recording studio’s window while engulfed in flames. Madness.

Vektor - Terminal ReduxVektor
Terminal Redux (Earache)
On a playlist with: Warbringer, Overkill, Death’s Leprosy
Listen Terminal Redux full stream (here)
Review Max Frank MetalSucks review (here)

It sounds like a back-handed compliment: the most singular band in modern thrash metal. But that’s Vektor, a faster peer of their forebears Voivod and Coroner, an intersection of expertise and innovation in a genre as idiomatically reliable as a hamburger. And like Death and Realm, Vektor guitars play enough notes to entertain a guitar virtuoso. Yeah, you could imagine Petrucci tapping his foot.

PolarPolar
No Cure, No Saviour (Prosthetic)
On a playlist with: Hatebreed, early Funeral For A Friend, Terror
Listen No Cure, No Saviour full stream (here)

It’s an old joke about the difference between hardcore and extreme metal: Metal is guys screaming that nothing matters, hardcore is screaming that every little thing matters. That thought extends to deathly corpse paint vs. personal tattoos, transcendence vs. macro-sensitivity, the goal of release vs. the struggle for control. One wants to write your last words, the other authors your diary. But into the former world comes the latter: a metal label landed a gem of modern hardcore. Look for Polar on best-of lists this winter.

enoidEnoid
Exile Aux Confins Des Tourments (Black Plague)
On a playlist with: Marduk, 1349, Emperor
Listen Exile Aux Confins Des Tourments full stream (here)

When you first listen to Enoid and kinda blinkingly make a face like you have a mouthful of spicy food, you might yield a laugh from your loved ones. For they can’t discern the shades of intensity in black metal; the idea that Enoid is the lightning fast, invasively intense kind might seem like a speck-sized distinction, like the difference between gun shots to the skull with bullets of slightly different size. Enoid is a big, dirty ordnance.

Grave MiasmaGrave Miasma
Endless Pilgrimage (Sepulchral Voice)
On a playlist with: Bolzer, Immolation, Abyssal
Listen Endless Pilgrimage full stream (here)

“… There’s nothing else in metal quite like it. It doesn’t feel like it was conceived and constructed in a laboratory; it doesn’t feel like it was drunkenly recorded on a four-track; and it doesn’t feel like it was produced by laboratory technicians attempting to recreate the effect of a drunken four-track recording. It feels like fucking Blessed Are The Sick as played by by Pink Floyd at Pompeii.” — Michael Nelson, Stereogum

Alaric End Of MirrorsAlaric
End Of Mirrors (Neurot)
On a playlist with: Sam Hain, Paradise Lost, early Killing Joke
Listen End Of Mirrors full stream (here)

Members of Dead And Gone, Pins Of Light, Noothgrush, Hedersleben, and UK Subs make up Alaric, and End Of Mirrors references the darkest brooding ’80s suicidal art goth post-punk. It’s important to know that so you don’t mistake Alaric for a spiritual cousin to the founders of the label that put out their album. More like second cousin.
