HELLCRAWLER


death metal/death n' roll from Slovenia. this actually came out back in the summer but wasn't available to download till recently and its a good thing too because I was about to lose my damn mind waiting for it. their first album "wastelands" was one of the first things I downloaded from bandcamp several years ago when I found that site. and that was thanks to the now defunct moshpit tragedy. anyhow this is a must for fans of entombed, dismember, grave, feral, entrails, etc, etc. great old school vibe and an irresistible groove. both albums are available for free or name your price.

ETERNAL ALCHEMIST


one man band raw, melodic black metal from Germany. definite darkthrone influence. also the vocals remind me of a mix of nocturno and dan weyandt. excellent stuff
