A promising stoner doom outfit from Bergen, Norway, Bismarck is a band that could garner many fans with their sophomore studio album, Oneiromancer, released earlier last year on April 17th. It was met with mostly positive reviews and together with their strong, positive presence across various social media, promoted the band further. I got the…
There has been some really great Death Metal releases in 2020… and one of the best has been by Oakland (USA) band Necrot. Front-man and bassist Luca Indrio agreed to have a chat to Steve from Aeons Abyss for the Noob Heavy website… Enjoy!
Scottish one-man band Hellripper is absolutely tearing it up at the moment with The Affair of the Poisons, undoubtedly one of the coolest Metal releases of 2020. Steve, from Aeons Abyss, was very grateful that James McBain, the man who is Hellripper, took some from his hectic schedule to answer a few questions about the…
Welcome to the ongoing series of articles called #EliranWatch2020 because when I see an album cover by Eliran Kantor, I write about it somewhere.
Here’s the details and a taste of the upcoming Spirit Adrift album, following their 2019 underground hit Divided By Darkness which caught the attention of many metalheads with it’s classic stylistic artwork by Joe Petagno. Newcomers prepared to be warmed by the classic Heavy Metal sound wrought with modern tones. There’s also details surrounding a 2021 European tour with Corrosion Of Conformity which is quite an interesting combination, both very classic bands in their sound but of different styles and aesthetics. I also wasn’t…
Most of us know Tribulation by now they’ve had an incredible run of albums. Down Below was in my top 5 for 2018 and is one of my favorite cassette so I’m really looking forward to this one.
Just a quick one before I go away for the weekend, as I know how many of you love Napalm Death. My relationship with them isn’t as tight as I’d like and this is another daily reminder that I need to take a deep dive into their work. I’ve heard a fair bit of their music and dig it, as well as the general message within, I just haven’t heard with much context or chronologically. Feel free to drop your favorite albums in the…
Grand Malevolence is the death metal album I’ve been waiting for this year. Many have come and gone, some solid albums but even with Necrot and Ulcerate releasing huge albums I was still reserving my fandom for something specific and until now, undefined. It’s a big boy, with many five minute songs making up forty-nine minutes total but not a minute is wasted. Depravity are a machine that will keep force feeding you your own shit the whole time then at the end you’ll doff…
Brisbane’s Fumarole have been around since 2018. They dropped the “Mountain” EP in 2018 and have released 3 singles leading up to the ambitious concept album “ Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes”. The album was recorded and mixed by Scott French of Lovestreet Studios, Gold Coast. Mastered by Haldor Grunberg of Satanic Audio in Poland, this is a great sounding album that excellently captures the live prowess of the band and is dripping in classic stoner goodness. Got a light?
Aversions Crown is one of the bigger modern bands of Australia, among titans like Psycroptic and Disentomb. Much the same as those bands, it’s usually a good few year wait between albums so Hell Will Come For Us All is a much welcomed release to fans of sci-fi death. At the very least, there are many improvements over their 2017 album Xenocide. Gotta love the Burke work though.
Warrior Within are a thrash metal band from Queensland, specifically the Sunshine Coast, where the good beaches are. Like many classic thrash bands in Australia, Warrior Within formed in the 90s by two brothers. The band has gained new members since 2016 and 2017 leading to the recording of several EPs which can be heard below. If you dig the old school speedy thrash sound with a message refined over decades, then give this lot a go and show some support.
Victoria K is a symphonic metal band from Melbourne that often supports bands like Eluveitie. This is absolutely for symphonic metal bands like Nightwish and Lacuna Coil. The project was initially a solo effort that became a fully fledged band on the Rockshots roster.
IRONSTONE is a young Australian progressive metal band, which came to the Melbourne scene in 2018 and soon earned a reputation for their high energy live shows. Influenced by a range of genres, their music is heavy and percussive, with atmospheric layers and catchy choruses.
