The album comes highly recommended for fans of Vomitory, Deicide and, Cannibal Corpse. Out since January 26th via Soulseller Records.

Darkthrone on its 20th album tackles the old era of traditional metal in a very conventional method. Although some of the tracks may lack the raw organic sound, nevertheless “Astral Fortress” is an epic blackened and doom-laden heavy metal record that is gritty and bold to its core! Out via Peaceville Records.

“Naa Skrider Natten Sort” is without doubt one of the best albums in black metal this year, Djevel has aptly presented themselves as true disciples next to bands like Whoredom Rife and Mare. With its beautiful atmosphere and grim melodies it is an epic black metal album with the songwriting and composition making it an instant classic. Out since today via Aftermath Music.

“Pitfalls” is the album that nobody expected from Leprous. Alternative and progressive mixed as one topped with beautiful emotional melodies.

The beginning of a new era for the band.
