Keraphorus - Cloven Hooves at the Holocaust Dawn

Photobucket
Being a huge fan of Order from Chaos, I was really excited to hear of Keraphorus which features none other than Pete Helmkamp. Not to mention other members from Angelcorpse and Morbosidad.

Deathspell Omega - Paracletus/Manifestations

Photobucket
Do yourself a favor and buy the new Deathspell LP, sounds really promising. Here's the new track called Devouring Famine. They have now signed with Seasons of Mist and this is the final record in their trilogy. And for the few of you who haven't heard Deathspell I'm putting up Manifestations which is a collection of early works to get you started.

Preorder Paracletus

Dahmer - The Studio Sessions Discography

Photobucket
Fast, brutal grind from Canada and unfortunately broke up in 2000... we'll just say I'm celebrating the 10th anniversary of their tragic break-up.

Ashdautas - Shadow Plays of Grief and Pain

Photobucket
Further proof that America has some really good BM bands.. confused as to why most of them are out of California though. Either way this is Ashdautas who blew me away when I saw them in Philly with Volahn (also the singer and guitarist) and Bone Awl. It's just what you're expecting in the black metal category except for the ghoulish screams reminiscent of older Burzum.

MGLA - Groza

Photobucket
Flowing black metal from Poland evil and angry with pretty decent production, and apparently pronounced 'mgwah'. Thanks Metal Archives for more useless info that I will never be able to get rid of.

Anhedonist - Demo

Photobucket
I've been excited about friends' bands before and then there is Anhedonist, one of the most brutal, evil sounding bands out of Washington. Combining slow black metal-ish sound with doom/death metal style, don't take my word just get it ...don't sleep on this band I will post more details about further releases.

Fall of the Bastards/Book of Black Earth Split

Photobucket
I've never been a huge fan of Book of Black Earth but the Fall of the Bastards side is pretty epic, imagine early Ulver meets Gospel of the Horns.

Revenge - Triumph. Genocide. Antichrist

Photobucket
I can proudly say that I saw these guys around this time... if memory serves me right. Either way I went with my best friend because we never had anything better to do than to go to a shitty venue called Jaxx in Northern Virgina to see death metal bands play. I guess we caught it the right night because we saw Revenge and I was blown away buy what I saw, epic war metal! I don't know what this will do for you but at the time it was life changing for me.

Sourlows is 1

Photobucket
Wanted to say thanks to the 25 of you who "read" the blog, keep it up and I might just keep it going. I'm also looking possibly for a co-author so get at me if you have any interest... and a good taste in music... which I assume you do because you're here.

Funebrarum - Beneath the Columns of Abandoned Gods

Photobucket
I'm generally sold on anything that NWN! has had a hand in and this is no exception, Funebrarum plays death metal in a way that would make Autopsy, Morbid Angel and Incantation proud. Get it!

Krohm - The Haunting Presence

Photobucket
Further indication that U.S.B.M. can actually be good... and yes it is another one man band. Not the usual run of the mill lo-fi Burzum worship (while that does have it's place after all) just a slew of influences. Ambient black metal with some serious doom influences... I find myself coming back to this band when I've lost faith in American Black Metal. Enjoy!

Arghoslent - Hornets of the Pogrom

Photobucket
You will be forewarned, this is NSDM! Moving on.. aside from the ignorant subject matter this record from start to finish is not only catchy as hell but has some really awesome riffs that dominate the entirety of the album. One member of Grand Belial's Key also... sketchy!

Necros Christos - Triune Impurity Rites

Photobucket
Not a whole lot of free time to post stuff recently, hope this post makes up for it. I present to you my loyal friends Necros Christos from Germany this album encompasses quite a bit of their older releases, black/death metal done the right way.

Vacant Coffin - Sewer Skullpture

Photobucket
If Carcass continued making records exactly like Necroticism it would sound like this album (actually some of riffs are too close for comfort.) None the less a really good record and features Lasse from Hooded Menace. Ignore the terrible artwork as well.
