...But the Shadows Have Foes - A Great Variety of Morbid Symptoms

END TIMES

 


first of all, i could have swore i posted these guys before but i guess not. second, i love the artwork for this album. so much happening and you don't notice it all right away. kind of reminds me of old sepultura or slayer album covers. the more you stare, the more you notice. kind of like the music on display here. a bit of thrash. a bit of hardcore. a bit of death metal. a bit of melody. a bit of crossover. all fanfuckingtastic. not sure how active these guys are. this came out in 2013. there was a promo from a 2019 but nothing since. 


MORBID CROSS

 


i posted the debut from these guys a few years ago and they finally followed it up. fantastically thrashtastically by the way. picks right up where the debut left off. been on a major thrash kick lately and morbid cross has been a big part it. no frills. just riffs. no pretentiousness. just thrash. and it's goddamn glorious.

BLEED

gotten kind of lucky lately with coming across bands i feel like posting on the blog. i don't seek out a of new bands like i used to. gotten used to relying on old faithful bands and albums. maybe it comes with age. i'm 43 now. makes me feel even older typing it out. fuck you. and now that ive mentioned my advanced age, heres bleed. other than that theyre from texas and, oddly enough, apparently signed to 20 buck spin(more on that in a minute), i don't know much about them. look at that album cover for a moment....screams late 90s/early 00s alt/nu metal doesnt it? yes it does. what about the music? sounds like a few kids found their dads nu metal cd collection and rolled with it. its a throwback that i welcome when done properly. and these kids did. i dont know that theyre kids but at my age, anyone under 30 is a kid. i don't listen to near the amount of nu that i used to but some of those bands i still hang on to. early korn, mudvayne and deftones. all of nothingface, american head charge and dry kill logic. i made a comment on the PRP yesterday about these guys and i described them as if daniel johns fronted a nu/alt metal band. i stand by that. this is a promising debut and i guess theres a full length in the works being put out by 20 buck spin. cant fucking wait for that. and if youre worried, no theres no angry white suburban guy rapping here. havent listened to them in years(so i could be wrong) but early grinspoon seems like a good comparison as well. at least in sound.. 20 buck spin took a chance, so can you.

bleed- name yo price

20 buck spin- name yo price

DEAD REGISTER


got a promo for the new album from this band yesterday. never heard of them but the promo material intrigued me. and damn. i'm kind of at a loss to describe them. i could make comparisons but they'd probably all be wrong. i'll do it anyway. type o negative. spotlights. the cure. soror dolorosa. beastmilk/grave plaesures. wailin storms. killing joke. the wipers. or maybe none of those. i dont know. but what i do know is that this is some doomy gloomy gothy sad bastard shit and it's goddamn glorious. god. damn. glori. ous.


 

HARROWED- UNSEEN HANDS


i owe my love of this band to adam and this blog. cursed is long gone. trap them is long gone. harrowed is by far my favorite hardcore band still standing. their 2013 lp "into inferno" was in my top 50 all time list from a couple years ago. 2019s "chaotic nonentity" made my year end list that year. even at only 4 songs, it's highly likely that "unseen hands" tops my list this year. this ep is a ripper. as good as the last album was, these 4 songs are better. this is the best harrowed have ever sounded. the production is clear. the band is tight. theres a touch of ringworm added to the mix in both thrashiness and, ive never noticed it till this ep, a bit of human furnace showing up in the vocals. cursed. trap them. and now ringworm. goddamn that combo of sounds. its a goddamn fantastic 9 minutes.

 

KAABALH


just found this a few days ago and i've listened repeatedly since. some slow and low death/doom metal. goddamn this is good. really fucking good. definite incantation influence but with less murk. i love this album.
