MB on Spotify - September summary
Greetings fellow metalheads!
It's been a while and now I owe you two summaries, so let's start with September. And it seems there are quite a few releases which have to be mentioned.
Let's start with the full releases, the big names that can't be missed are: Aborted, Carcass, Carnifex, Iron Maiden, Rivers of Nihil and Signs of the Swarm, which obviously means it was a good month. But, as usual, this summary is supposed to encourage you to explore some different regions of metal and try different stimuli to make you tap your feet, headbang, "blergh" or "roooooooar", so you should definitely check out new full-lengths from Pestilential Shadows, Skepticism, Virial, Portrait, Veilburner, Occulsed, Cognizance, Triacanthos, Fustilarian, Lvcifyre and Norse. I would definitely add debut album from Argesh, one of many bands with NicolÚ Paracchini (in this case black metal with some symphonic elements) and black metallers Cogas from London, UK. Also, if one album from Cosmophobe a year isn't enough for you ("Neo-Terran Dystopia" was released in April), you can get another fix of instrumental deathcore on "The Tragedy of Being" , Inferi (Nashville, TN) released "Vile Genesis" which has some good melodic death metal with solos (yes, still addicted to them) and some symphonic elements, too. You should also check out Solacide from Finland with their take on progressive black metal and Unique Leader Records gave us Vulvodynia (the band, not medical condition) with their "Praenuntius Infiniti" album, so if you're into pig-squeaks, blast-beats, breakdowns and solos (kind of trademark for ULR, isn't it?), check this one out. I know it's already November, but that shouldn't stop you from catching up with the above and more full releases using the link below:
We've also had almost 6 hours of music in form of EPs released in September. The bands included on our playlist are: ∆poch, Apogean, Carnivorous Horde, 2 EPs from Crocell (from Denmark), CroworD, Cult Burial, Existentia, Feanor, Forever Autumn, Goatskullt, Insomnium, Lieweaver, Lotan, No Coffin, Slimelord, The Troops of Doom and Zaqqoem.
